  •  This stuff is sickening. (3+ / 0-)

    From the Los Angeles Times story you cite:

    In Los Angeles, he tapped Curry, an Irish-born priest, as vicar of clergy. The records show that sex abuse allegations were handled almost exclusively by the archbishop and his vicar. Memos that crossed their desks included graphic details, such as one letter from another priest accusing Garcia of tying up and raping a young boy in Lancaster.
    And how did Mahony respond? With concern for the priest!
    Mahony personally phoned the priests' therapists about their progress, wrote the priests encouraging letters and dispatched Curry to visit them at a New Mexico facility, Servants of the Paraclete, that treated pedophile priests.

    "Each of you there at Jemez Springs is very much in my prayers and I call you to mind each day during my celebration of the Eucharist," Mahony wrote to Wempe.

    Fucking assholes. They Catholic Church needs to be sued into oblivion. The only thing these assholes understand is losing their money.
