An Open Letter To Catholic League President Bill Donahue2012-06-24 at 03:22 pm Blog RSS
The jury in the trial of two Philadelphia Catholic priests has reached a verdict. Msgr. William Lynn was acquitted of conspiracy; on the two charges of child endangerment, he was acquitted on one of them, and found guilty on the other. The jury was deadlocked on two charges against Rev. James Brennan: one for attempted rape, and one for child endangerment.
Catholic League President Bill Donohue comments as follows:
The witch-hunt has come to an end, and those who have been clamoring for blood lost big time. What made this a witch-hunt was the decision of former Philadelphia D.A. Lynne Abraham to summarily ignore what she was empowered to do in 2001: she was given the charge “to investigate the sexual abuse of minors by individuals associated with religious organizations and denominations.” Had she done so, those cases of minors who may have been sexually molested by ministers, rabbis, and others, would have been investigated. Instead, absolutely nothing was done about these cases.
On March 31, 2011, I sent Abraham a letter [click here] in the overnight mail asking her to identify which “religious organizations and denominations” she pursued other than the Roman Catholic Church. She never answered. After all, what could she say?
The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), and church-chasing attorneys like Marci Hamilton, are today’s big losers. They never cared about getting Fr. Brennan, and they didn’t care a whole lot more about getting Msgr. Lynn on child endangerment. They wanted the big prize—they wanted to nail a high-ranking clergyman on conspiracy. Had they won on this count, they would have been in the driver’s seat to pursue other “conspirators” nationally. Looks like their car ran out of gas in Philadelphia.
See now I disagree with who is the big loser in this landmark case Mr.Donahue. While you still seem to make light of the fact that he was convicted of one of the two charges against him by pointing out that he was acquitted of one of the charges.Now while Lynn was acquitted of conspiracy…he was convicted of child endangerment which either way you seek to view it,is in and of itself a severe blow to all those catholic higher ups that continue to do exactly what Lynn was just convicted of.Yes Mr.Donahue gone are the days of not being culpable for the crimes committed by the Catholic Church.
You see now the entire Church will be held responsible…the Bishops,the Cardinals,the Msgrs.,and all the rest of the
of the Church…..dare I say even to the lofty heights of the Pope himself.
And you know what Mr.Donahue….I say it’s about time !
I personally find your attack against S.N.A.P. and it’s members very typical of your past comments against anyone who questions your Roman Catholic Church Crimes.
A witch hunt you say…hmmm interesting since Witch Hunts usually conclude in a finding of innocent as they are seen for what they really are. However in this case against Msgr. William Lynn I think it is fair to say that his crimes against children were seen for exactly what they were.Honestly I do not know what to make of your attack on former Philadelphia D.A. Lynne Abraham as to chiding her for supposedly not pursing members of other Religious denominations,but I fully well understand that kind of warped mentality.
As A member of S.N.A.P. and a victim of one of the Catholic Churches priests who molested many children and never spent one day of his life behind bars for his crimes I have only one thing to say to you Sir….well more than one thing really,but for now I’ll keep it at this,You ought to be ashamed of yourself Mr.Donahue,right along with all the other Catholics who seek
too keep all the past and present hidden crimes where they have been for far too long now,hidden.
For your consideration Mr.Donahue the following Video is well suggested for your review.
