Ten Roman Catholic priests is charged with sexually abusing altar boys in Spain.
A judge in the southern Spanish city of Granada has charged 10 Catholic priests with sexually abusing altar boys in their care, in a case that has prompted Pope Francis to intervene.
The Pope telephoned one of the victims, who was 14 at the time of alleged abuse, after receiving a personal letter at the Vatican last year. Francis, who has led a wide-ranging crackdown on clerical sexual abuse since becoming Pontiff almost two years ago, apologised to the victim.
He also ordered an internal investigation – a move that prompted the Archbishop of Granada, Francisco Javier Martinez, and fellow priests to publicly prostrate themselves in front of the altar of Granada’s cathedral last November, in a gesture of remorse for failings by the Church.
The judge in the case, Judge Antonio Moreno Marin, published a five-page brief earlier this week after charging the priests. The sordid details of his initial findings make for grim reading, even for those who have dealt with previous abuse cases involving paedophile priests.
The investigation relates to the evidence of one of the altar boys, who claims that he was abused between 2004 and 2007 by a group of priests known as the “Romanones”. The brief states that the boy was 14 when the abuse began and says that the alleged ringleader, Roman Martinez, would invite him and others to a home he owned in Granada.

The Pope has not started any “crack down” on pedophile Catholic priests. It is ordinary citizens who have broken free from the clutches of the Church, who have started to bring criminal priests to justice. By simply filing police complaints against sexal perverts in long robes, gifted them by the local bishops.
The Vatican is the epic center for this kind of criminality. I have personally been involved in a bid to rescue a priest from being arrested. A bid to avoid a local Catholic community from being scandalized. The archbishop solved the probem, by transfering the priest overseas to Canada. Nothing was done to give the victim of abuse any recognition, nor any compensation.
1 Timothy 4
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
The Pope sin by banning his priests from having a wife and refusing to grant them a normal sex life. By doing so, the Pope him self is the main culprit and responsible for the sex crimes of the Roman Catholic priesthood. This religious movement is a disgrace before Jesus the Messiah. We have seen decades of Vatican cover up for criminal priests, homosexual offenders and outright pedophiles.
This is the painful truth. The day Catholics acknowledge the Pope to be the man of sin and lawlessness, they will probably run for the exit. May Jesus the Messiah open up an exodus for all people who have been victimized by the religious wickedness caused by the papacy. Amen.
