Too bad Mahoney tried to cover for the Church by not turning these priests over to the police.

But the documents suggest that Mahony at times had to press an unresponsive Vatican to get molesting priests out of the church.

God’s personal church moves in mysterious ways.

considering the first call should have went to police and not the Vatican

re: #3 Aligarr

Considering that this was just after the ’80s satanic sex abuse hysteria, it’s not hard to see why folks were reluctant to trust the police…

re: #4 eightyfiv

Why? Because some innocent people get arrested, then a series of accusations that Mahoney clearly believed shouldn’t be dealt with?

You’ve got to be shitting me. You’re excusing not reporting the rape of children to police because of these entirely unrelated cases?

He wasn’t reluctant to contact the police, either. He just didn’t contact the police. Even after the Vatican pushed back and kept the priests in the church. He just kept covering it up.

Stupidest post of the day, so far. Got any more?

re: #5 Glenn Beck’s Grand Unifying Theory of Obdicut

I like your sense of justice. Guilty until proven innocent, when children are concerned? Have fun witch-hunting.

This isn’t like adult rape cases, where claiming false accusation is your standard throwaway defense. Parents get *scared* and inadvertently extract lies from their kids. Check out those cases — the criminal justice handling was (and might still be) a complete mess. Accused might as well be guilty. Do you really want to equate the two? Innocent folks spent years, even decades in jail owing to that attitude.

And thanks for the brilliant repostes. Wow. “Stupid” sure showed me.

re: #8 eightyfiv

Stupid is the word indeed. The reason the church didn’t (all over the planet by the way) is that they didn’t trust the police not to jail the priests. Are you not aware that it was priests (and Cardinals, and Popes) who knew the truth, often from confession by the pedophiles?

Your argument, I say again, is stupid.

How is getting the police to actually arrest someone ‘guilty until proven innocent’?

I really have no fucking clue what you’re saying. You should report child abuse cases even when you really believe the abuse is occurring, you have a systemic record of the same guy abusing kids, because sometimes there are false accusations?
