Donohue Gloats His Pedophile Priest Enabler Convicted Of Only One Felony

In what may go down as one of the most tone-deaf, disgusting, inhuman press releases of the year, Bill Donohue and his Catholic League today responded to the historic conviction of a Philadelphia priest, the first American Roman Catholic church official to be charged for the handling of priest child sex abuse cases.

Father William Lynn today was found guilty in one of three felony charges, endangering the welfare of a child, for his responsibility in covering up child sex abuse cases.

But in 285 words, Donohue gloats the “witch-hunt has come to an end,” and claims “those who have been clamoring for blood lost big time.” Apparently, the fact that untold hundreds, maybe thousands of children in this priest’s parish, over decades upon decades, were raped, emotionally and sexually abused, had their innocence stolen, forever will live their lives changed by these atrocious acts escapades the 64-year old crusader for pedophile rights.

Instead of admitting the Msgr. William Lynn oversaw thousands of cases of abuse, and did little to nothing substantial to end the abuse and bring the perpetrators to justice, Donohue questions the methods of the Philadelphia prosecutor. And instead of admitting — or, even denying — the abuse took place, by men of God ordained to protect the innocent and powerless, Donohue points to a letter he wrote asking her “to identify which ‘religious organizations and denominations’ she pursued other than the Roman Catholic Church.”

In other words, Bill Donohue is effectively saying, “It’s OK, because every other religious institution rapes little boys and girls, too.”

(Right about now I know you’re hearing Frank Langella’s voice bellowing the infamous Richard Nixon outburst in “Frost/Nixon”: “I’m saying that when the President does it, it’s *not* illegal!“)

Donohue, who, by the way, pays the New York Times many thousands of dollars annually to run an ad defending pedophile priests, said in his statement today, “Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), and church-chasing attorneys like Marci Hamilton, are today’s big losers.”

No, Bill, today’s big losers, are the thousands of children who were raped, assaulted, and emotionally and tragically changed forever, because with one or one million convictions, they will never, ever, be made whole.

Those children and now, those adults, Bill, will forever be the losers.

Can you ever begin to grasp this?

"The jury was deadlocked on two charges" is a reminder that William Lynn was not pronounced innocent of anything; found guilty on one charge and a tie-vote away from being found guilty on the rest. And I hate to disappoint Billie-boy Donohue, but the hunt for justice is far from over; the Catholic Corporation is nowhere near being "in the clear" here or in other countries. I have faith that convictions on Conspiracy (if not on RICO charges) are in its future.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses have a policy within their religion that protects pedophiles.

The official policy is that the elders of the “Church” are supposed to handle the matter internally, without contacting the police. They do this so that shame will not be brought on the religion.

It’s important that they keep a squeaky clean image to the public. Remember they believe they are the only “True” religion and all other Christian Churches are under the control of Satan. JW’s are not supposed to sue other JW’s or involve the police or courts.

They believe these are Satan’s organizations and any crime by a JW should be dealt with internally.The elders will contact the police ONLY if they’re forced to by state law. Otherwise they are forced to follow official policy from headquarters. Some states require that “priests” or “pastors” report child abuse to the authorities. If they are not forced to report them than they cover it up.

How silly can Donahue get. The only reason that Lynn wasn't found guilty is that the jury didn't want to blame HIM for what his boss, Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, was CLEARLY responsible.
Unless Cardinal Bevilacqua was wrong about his belief in HELL, death may have spared him from punishment on earth only to speed him to A MUCH WORSE FATE!
