1000+ Reports Of Sexual Abuse By Catholic Priests In PA | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC

15 August 2018

A bombshell Grand Jury report in Pennsylvania reveals a shocking level of abuse and cover-up by Catholic priests. Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi are joined by Shaun Dougherty, a Catholic sexual abuse survivor, and Mitchell Garabedian, who is representing six victims from this Pennsylvania case to discuss this two-year long investigation and the church’s efforts to cover up the crimes.

Translated from (right-wing) Dutch daily De Telegraaf today:

Abuse in Roman Catholic Church: ‘gays are guilty

Boston – American cardinal Raymond Burke believes that the homosexuals are mainly tp blame for abuse by clergy.

The cardinal said this in an interview with the president of the Christian organization Catholic Action for Faith and Family. The conversation took place after it became known that thousands of children in the USA had been abused for years by some three hundred priests in the state of Pennsylvania.

According to him, the church is not to blame for the abuse, but it is “acts that are caused by homosexual culture. That has influenced the church and must be exterminated.”

“Sexuality is only between the man and the woman.” Burke also advises parents to keep children away from homosexuals and homosexual family members.

The cardinal does not think that the church should undergo a drastic reform or that stricter controls are needed.

    • Thank you for sharing! This cardinal, as, eg, his Wikipedia article shows, belongs the right wing of the church, obstructing Pope Francis on many points. His homophobia is in line with Pope Benedict.
