People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen

A Little Pukey Taste

The Pope was blamed directly for ignoring repeated pleas by senior American churchmen to take action against a priest who had molested up to 200 deaf boys.

Father Lawrence C. Murphy, who worked at the St John’s School for the Deaf in St Francis, Wisconsin, from 1950 to 1974, starting as a teacher and rising to director, allegedly molested scores of pupils, preying on his victims in their dormitories and on class trips.

But instead of being defrocked and the police called in, it is alleged that Father Murphy avoided justice and remained a member of the Church after a key intervention by the Pope — then known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. Murphy was quietly moved to the Diocese of Superior in northern Wisconsin in 1974 and spent his last 24 years working freely with children in parishes and schools. He died in 1998 at the age of 72, still a priest.


No matter the consequences, or fallout, true or false, this  is deserving of the full bright light of honest disclosure being shined upon it.  Into every dark corner.  I have no axe to grind with Catholicism. But my axe is ground sharp enough to De-nut anybody who abuses children. No exceptions.  I have previously mentioned this subject.

This is about the power of the Catholic church. Either someone wants to besmirch the character of the Vatican, and diminish that power, or the Vatican harbors an element of evil intent on retaining power.  One or the other. 

We have to seek the truth in all things. Regardless of outcome we must DEMAND that deception is exposed.  If you are Catholic, ask your local priest DIRECTLY about this subject. And then pray for truth. I'm going to.

UPDATE:  This is a powder keg.  Glad I'm not the Vatican's P.R. dude.

Amen, mister. This is ridiculous. If I were Catholic, I would be so mad and distrustful of my church.
