HARRISBURG — Top Roman Catholic leaders in Pennsylvania covered up decades of child sex abuse involving more than 1,000 victims and hundreds of priests, according to a long-awaited grand jury report released Tuesday.
Capping what may be the most comprehensive examination yet of clergy sex abuse across a single state, the nearly 900-page document accuses church officials in six Pennsylvania dioceses of routinely prioritizing their institution over the welfare of children in their care.
The allegations stretch back to the 1940s, detailing child rapes and groping that mirrored the reports that have roiled the church worldwide. But the document includes several uniquely disturbing accounts of its own — including one of a 1970s pedophile and child pornography ring in Pittsburgh among priests who whipped their victims, and took photos of one boy as he posed naked as if on the cross.
One priest in Southwestern Pennsylvania is said to have sexually abused a boy in a confessional. Another, from Allentown, allegedly forced a boy to give him oral sex and then cleansed the child’s mouth with holy water. Two priests impregnated teens; one urged an abortion, the other arranged a secret marriage.
In all, more than 300 priests were singled out – though some names remain redacted amid legal wrangling over the fairness of the investigation and the public report. Dozen of church superiors — including some now in prominent posts nationally — were also named as complicit.

The Roman Catholic worship of skulls, bones and corpses is bad enough, still some people defend this morbid religiousity, and claim it is true Christianity. But the sex crimes of the Vatican should normally be able to open the eyes of even Roman Catholics. The religious movement they are a part of seems to be a crime syndicate.
The present Pope pretend to be the leader who will clean up the Roman Catholic Church. People who believe in such utopia, seems to forget that every pope has claimed the ladder. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio grew up in Fascist Argentina. He started as an alter boy, a gift to the Mother Church. Then he became a seminary, a priest, Bishop, Archbishop and finally a Cardinal. On the way to the top every priest has been a part of the cover up for sexual abusive partners in crime.
The papal Church cover up for these crimes, by sending pedophile colleges to other parishes. They have their own statehood where they can hide. Their own passport, and their own diplomats who help them all over the World.
I have reported on the most serious sex crimes of the Roman Catholic Church. Use this link to read them all.
What is the spiritual base for this criminal syndicate of priests who hide behind a claim of respect for freedom of religion?
In 1929 the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini gifted the Vatican statehood to the papacy. Roman Catholicism became the state religion if fascist Italy, in exchange for a deal where the Pope supported the fascist government.
This very bad fruit of sexual crimes is a result of a systematic theology of errors and heresy. The Petrine doctrine that the pope is the successor of St. Peter, the very “holy father” and the replacement of Jesus on Earth, is the mother of all lies. Such claims do not only amount to blunt blasphemy, but leaves all Catholics at mercy of a seat of an antichrist.
The truth is that only the Holy Spirit is the replacement of Jesus on Earth. Only God the Father is the “holy father”, and the Pope is a deceiver of the flock. By looking at the global scale of sex crimes of the Vatican priesthood, all men that are not spiritual blind can see and understand.
And do not call anyone on earth “father”, for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.
Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.
All the Church reformers in the 16th century correctly claimed the Roman Catholic Church to be lead by an antichrist. They spoke the truth, risking their own life. Nothing seems to be new under the sun.
Repent. Leave the Roman Catholic Church, alone, and join a Evangelical Christian Church. Become a part of the true body of Jesus the Messiah, and rejoice in the truth. Jesus, alone is the truth. His followers only pray to Him using His name, alone.
