The author receives Holy Communion circa 1975 from the Holy Hands of Fr. Marcial Maciel, Legion of Christ Founder and Pedophile
The latest article on Jerry Sandusky paints a terrible picture of a predatory pedophile
[Final paragraph of article]:
This was about seizing one final bit of control over the kids, the ones who have come forward and the ones who still remain silent. During the past year he did it over and over, whether it was waiving hearings at the final moment and forcing witnesses to prepare for nothing, or sitting with an ugly smug look as they testified about the sickest moments of their shattered lives.
This was a shrewd plan, and throughout this entire ordeal, of all the terrible things people said and proved Jerry Sandusky to be, no one ever claimed he wasn't remarkably intelligent, creative and cunning.
This was Sandusky bathing them in his narcissism, reminding everyone, and his victims in particular, that when he leans back on that prison bed, no matter how thin the mattress, uncomfortable the conditions or inedible the lunch, no one can stop him from reliving it all.
He wanted them to know: They'll remain his. Forever. That part of Touchdown Jerry, clad in red, remains safe and secure.
"A most banal, self-delusional, completely-untethered-from-reality, entirely-self-focused-as-if-he-himself-was-the-victim," McGettigan said, blasting Sandusky's statement.
"It was, in short, ridiculous."
The only hope is that it wasn't effective, that it won't stick with those frightened kids who became powerful men, and that the hateful, harmful words of Jerry Sandusky just drifted off into the Bellefonte air, soon to be forgotten like the shrinking pathetic man they took away on Tuesday to die.

Fr Marcial Maciel, thanks to his astuteness, Catholics choosing to be blind, and the Catholic hierarchy protecting him gets Nothing for abusing over a 100 teens

Fr. Paul Lennon has the privilege of receiving Holy Communion from the hands of Holy Founder, Fr. Maciel
"The severe condemnation by pope Benedict XVI of the Legionaries of Christ, who he has ordered to be completely reorganized, and of their founder, Father Marcial Maciel, Mexican, bigamist, incestuous, thief, rapist of girls and boys, including one of his own sons -a character that seems to be taken from the novels of the Marquis of Sade-, is still not enough to dissipate the shadows with which all that (meaning, clerical sex abuse) has covered one of the world's most important religions."
Mario Vargas Llosa
The Peruvian Nobel Prize-winning author, Mario Vargas Llosa, in his latest book: "La Civilizacion del Espectaculo" ( Alfaguara, mayo, 2012 ) said this in the most eloquent Spanish which characterizes his writing:
" La severisima condena por parte del papa Benedicto XVI de los Legionarios de Cristo, a los que ha declarado en reorganizacion integral, y de su fundador, el padre Marcial Maciel, mexicano, bigamo, incestuoso, estafador, estuprador de niños y niñas, incluido uno de sus propios hijos - un personaje que parece escapado de las novelas del Marques de Sade - , no acaba de borrar las sombras que todo ello ha echado sobre una de las mas importantes religiones del mundo. ª
When he says " las sombras que todo ello ha echado" he is referring to pederasty by priests in the Church. Marques de Sade, ? not a bad description.
Regain has to continue to "borrar esas sombras" "dissipate those shadows"

Cambodia gives 81-year-old Swiss man 5 years in prison for
By The Associated Press | Associated Press – 1 hr 24 mins ago
PHNOM PENH, Cambodia -
An 81-year-old Swiss man with a history of pedophilia charges has been sentenced to five years
in a Cambodian prison after paying a 13-year-old for sex.
Hugo Leuthold's lawyer said he plans to appeal Friday's sentence as too harsh given his client's age.
Leuthold was arrested in March after police found him naked in a Phnom Penh hotel with the boy.
Rights group Action Pour Les Enfants said in a statement that Leuthold was also charged with illegally entering Cambodia
from Thailand, where he jumped bail in 2010 after being charged with sexually abusing a 12-year-old boy.
Cambodian police previously arrested Leuthold on Christmas Day 2010 on charges of sexually abusing four boys. He was
convicted and sentenced to two years in prison but was released after 10 months

Such is my take on the the interview he gave and published by

The Archdiocese of N.Y. has issued a statement condemning the comments of Franciscan Father Benedict Groeschel. If you missed his observations in an interview with the National Catholic Register that's no surprise. The entire interview was scrubbed last night ftom NCR's website after Father Groeschel thoughts on the psycholoigy of priest sexual abusers began to provoke widespread outrage. His comments, which seemed to excuse some priest pedophiles suffering "nervous breakdowns" and "seduced" by teens, came right out of the dark ages of the sex abuse crisis. Groeschel goes well beyong blaming the victim and excusing people who should have known better from reporting sexual assaults of children. He even offered an understanding heart for Penn State's "poor" (I kid you not) Jerry Sandusky.
In a statement released today, Joseph Zwilling, Communications Director for the Archdiocese of New York, said, "The comments made by Father Benedict Groeschel that appeared on the website of the National Catholic Register are simply wrong. Although he is not a priest of the Archdiocese of New York, what Father Groeschel said cannot be allowed to stand unchallenged. The sexual abuse of a minor is a crime, and whoever commits that crime deserves to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
Groeschel was "inclined to think" first time offenders shouldn't be sent to jail "because their intention was not committing a crime."
