What did Bergoglio and the Argentine episcopacy do to cover up a child abusing sodomite priest?

How many more reasons are there for sodomites never, ever to be admitted to the priesthood?

Pope was told of priest arrested in Argentina, victim advocates say

Pope Francis and Church authorities did not intervene to sanction Nicola Corradi, a priest accused of sexually abusing deaf children in Italy and then in Argentina, according to advocates for clerical sex abuse victims. The 82-year old priest and four others were arrested this week by Argentine police.

 BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Advocates for clerical sex abuse victims expressed outrage Thursday that a priest accused of sexually abusing deaf children in Italy wasn’t sanctioned by the Vatican and allegedly went on to abuse children in Pope Francis’s native Argentina.

Argentine police arrested the priest, 82-year old Nicola Corradi, this week. Corradi, priest Horacio Corbacho, 55, and three other men are accused of abusing at least eight children at a school for youths with hearing disabilities in northwestern Mendoza province.

BishopAccountability.org, an online resource about clerical abuse, reported that Italian survivor groups told the Vatican in 2008 and 2014 about Corradi and others accused of molesting children at a school for the deaf in Verona.

“Words fail. It is appalling and heartbreaking that Corradi was not stopped by Pope Francis or by other Church authorities. Corradi’s presence at the school in Mendoza was no secret,” said Anne Barrett Doyle, co-director of BishopAccountability.

“Thanks to the Church’s inaction, Corradi appears to have been able to replicate exactly the grotesque situation he enjoyed in Verona - a ring of child molesters in charge of utterly defenseless children who could neither hear nor speak. If the allegations are true, the Pope must accept responsibility for the unimaginable suffering of these new victims.”

The government of Mendoza province temporarily suspended classes at Antonio Provolo Institute, the school for children with hearing impairment. It also banned faculty and staff from having any contact with students.

The abuse allegations surfaced after a complaint by provincial lawmaker Daniela Garcia, who spoke to a witness through an interpreter.

“It was the first way so that other witnesses and victims could then come forward and denounce what was happening,” Garcia said Wednesday.

Authorities are taking testimony from students as well as parents who suspect their children were subjected by the accused to oral sex, fondling and sexual intercourse over the past decade, said Fabricio Sidoti, the investigating prosecutor.

The Mendoza archbishop’s office has expressed solidarity with the victims and said it is cooperating with authorities.

Carlos Lombardi, an attorney who specializes in canon law, has blamed church officials in Mendoza province.

Lombardi, who also advises a group of survivors of clerical sex abuse, told local TV this week that he suspects Mendoza Archbishop, Carlos Maria Franzini, and his predecessor, Jose Maria Arancibia, knew that Corradi had been accused of sexually abusing children in Italy. He also argued they must have been aware of the abuse that Corradi is accused of committing in Argentina.

The same happened in one of the richest areas of Buenos Aires. Priest Gramlich was abusing children in Colegio Marín (upper class all boys school) during the 80's/90's. After accusations he was transferred by the bishop to another upper class school where he continued molesting children. Only now, in 2016 he was defrocked.

There was another priest in this area, he ended up in jail for scheduling in his own calendar the dates he would be abusing children under his care in an orphanage. He had been abusing children for a long time, and got away with it. I think he's no longer in jail and is being protected somewhere in Argentina.

Some priests in this area have extremely nice lives, yachts, women, children, lots of money, you should come and see them. It's really interesting to hear them preach the contrary of what they live.

God Almighty please, please absolutely destroy this wicked perverse institution once and for all! She has become the harlot of harlots a haunt for every impure spirit. I for one will not shed a tear when You destroy Rome and leave no stone unturned...no I will rejoice that you have heard the cry of the voiceless little ones and have avenged their sufferings!

How utterly depressing. A pox on these demons, may they roast in hell. Anyone who harms or corrupts a child, but a PRIEST...
It is enough to drive you mad. I love our Catholic faith, but something has to give, now that we see our house is in shambles and diabolical men are in charge.
