Don't hold your breath waiting for law enforcement to start interviewing anyone or making any arrests.

That would be a violation of the rights of the Church if the secular authorities dared to investigate a priest.

Oh wait. It's not 1050. Never mind.

Not all Catholic priests are pederasts.

Some are just there for the nuns.

So I wonder what happens if you stand in front of a mirror and say pedopriest three times.

A spokeswoman for the Dallas Diocese did not return a message Wednesday seeking an explanation of what will constitute a credible accusation against a current or former priest.

IOW, the pedos are in the clear as long as there weren't multiple witnesses. Because kids will make up just about anything to get attention, right?

No, that was me.

As an aside, i've noticed on several occasions while watching Criminal Minds (at season 11 now) when they mention that whole Satanic Panic stupidity, especially with regards to the whole "recovered memories" bullshiat that was forced on all those kids. I especially liked the derision shown by the actors whenever the subject came up (aimed at the perpetrators).

Wait to see the list before you makeup your mind. It could be fifteen dead priests and one priest who was defrocked in the 80's and is living in south America.
 
2018-10-11 05:49:49 AM  
And noted conservative Janet Reno who helped makes her name as a prosecutor nationally known with the "recovered memories" Satanic daycare abuse trials.

Or closet conservative Tipper Gore and her Parent Resource Music - though only 2 of the Filthy Fifteen were "occult" most were just in the lewd category.

Another way of looking at it, this is how you phrase a simple release of the complete clergy roster as newsworthy.

The catholic church organization needs to end. Burn it down and salt the earth. Sure there's some followers of the faith that aren't assholes and are good decent people.

By some estimates 5 percent of all priests since 1950 have been accused of sexual misconduct. Read bishopaccountability.org- look up your city, or your diocese. It'll make you want to cry.
 
2018-10-11 08:32:19 AM  
All "creditable" accusations. With the church deciding what is creditable.

In other words, if we didn't catch him with his dick in a child then the complaint is not creditable. Next.

Farking Canuck: Nurglitch: The un-official motto of Texas is "They needed killin'" as I recall.

The official state motto is, and I quote it in its entirety, "Friendship." (It's from the history of the word Texas which is a few bastardizations along from an Indian word meaning - you guessed it - "Friendship.") I assume that the delightful frisson that comes from the difference between the official and unofficial mottoes is an unintended side effect.

Good for them!  The people demanded transparency, and the diocese in Texas obliged. Sure, a step in the right direction isn't going to be enough to appease people here, but it's a start

Because they are not opening up all records ... only the ones they choose to. So they can still hide and protect pedos so their profits are minimally impacted.

When they allow the police to do their jobs. When they pass on all reports of sexual assault to the police as they are required to by law. Then that will be "enough to appease people here".

Right now this is just another case of misdirection to maintain profits..

Possibly, but fta:
"Opening our files to outside investigators and releasing the names is something I have been considering for some time," Burns said in Wednesday's statement. "Since I believe it is the right thing to do, the Diocese of Dallas has had outside investigators, a team made up of former FBI, state troopers and other experts in law enforcement, examining our files since February, and they still have work to do."

The names being made public will open them up to outside prosecution. Maybe. I hope.
 
2018-10-11 09:37:16 AM  
So will this be before or after they are secretly sent to another church?
 
2018-10-11 09:40:45 AM  

grinnel: Possibly, but fta:


Also FTFA (first sentence in fact):

All 15 Catholic dioceses in Texas will release early next year the names of clergy who have been "credibly accused" of sexual abuse of a minor

Considering the church's long history of deception and cover-up, forgive me if I do not trust their hired investigators. Maybe if they just let the police do their jobs everyone will feel a little safer.

I don't totally disagree. However, there are such things as false allegations. If this investigative group is diligent in sorting that out, I say let them before posting everybody's name.

Like I said, I'm just optimistic that this is a step in the right direction. I'm tired of being pessimistic.
