Catholic

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Six days ago I got an email from Fr. Raymond Guiao of St. Ignatius Cleveland President of my childhood college-prep school. The distribution list could only be seen by title with an estimated membership in the ten-thousands. I created a vid with my voice as audio and Father Guiao’s words as visual, and replied-all with the link . . . nothing. Not even a blip on the highly-sensitive google analytics, which told me no one listened. Though it’s just a tech event that could be disregarded it points to the Catholic Church’s response to priests raping boys. They’re not listening. There are other crimes sexual in nature under the Church’s umbrella like teachers and volunteers, and crimes not including rape, but why list them along with the central crime. Father’s words should be, “while there are other related crimes of sexual nature against the kids in our care I will call it what it is . . . priests forcefully sodomizing boys”. Christians including Catholics who fought against gay marriage often talk of the sin of sodomy between two consenting adults in an attempt to embellish the alleged sinfulness of gay life, but words get softened talking about forced sodomy of a child. On twitter people are using the phrase new to me, “cradle Catholic” as they reconcile with being a member of an organization including leadership of men who rape boys including other men in authority who actively cover up. “Cradle Catholic” seems to say, “I was born into this” . . in effect distancing themselves. I don’t know how long my outrage will continue, and I can’t predict when I’ll get bored with twitter, as of now I pledge to continue what I started last night. I got a few retweets, and a few likes from people who had, “Catholic” in their tweets. Catholic tweets were in abundance last night. I pledge to push on pass the point of my attention turning to an alternative topic. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
