a ‘grand jury identified 301 “predator priests” and more than 1,000 sexual abuse victims over the past 70 years.

by duncanr

pedophile priestaccording to news reports, Pope Francis reckons ‘reliable’ data indicates that around 2% (i.e., 1 in 50) of roman catholic clergy are paedophiles

BBC Director General Falls on Sword

by duncanr

george entwhistleThe Director General of the BBC, George Entwistle, has resigned after being skewered in an interview with John Humphreys – an interview that revealed the head of the BBC to be a man too busy to keep up with what is happening in the world or his own organisation by reading newspapers or following events on social media sites like twitter. When every man and his dog (well me, anyway) knew that Newsnight was about to broadcast a program alleging the involvement of a senior politician of the Thatcher era in the sexual abuse of children at . . .

Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll (and Jimmy Savile)

by duncanr

One time media favourite, Jimmy Savile, who raised £millions for charity has been exposed in recent weeks as a sexual predator of young girls.

The number of women who have come forward to accuse him of sexual molestation is now in the hundreds (and rising every day as more and more find the courage to go public with their accusation)

The sheer number of women involved has astonished many people – as well as how such behaviour could have gone un-noticed at the time

The truth is, it was common knowledge then, and . . .

Jimmy Savile Devalued

by duncanr

With his long peroxide blonde hair, shell suit, medallion, and fat cigar, Jimmy Savile was a weel-kent face on British TV screens – from his appearances as a host on Top of the Pops, a programme highlighting a handful of songs from the current top 20, to his long-running show ‘Jim’ll Fix It‘ where he endeavoured to make folks (mainly children) dreams come true.

He was also noted for the huge amount of money he raised for charity, and was knighted by the Queen in recognition of this work (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Savile)

Since he died last year, however, a less savoury side to his character has emerged – a number of allegation have been made accusing him of . . . sexually assaulting young women. These are now the subject of a police investigation.

Whatever the eventual outcome it is already clear that the accusations have tarnished the man's reputation and the public no longer hold him in the same high esteem they once did - http://tinyurl.com/9le442f

Italian Bishops Need Not Report Pedophile Priests to Police

by duncanr

Once again the RC Church demonstrates how out of touch it is with public opinion, at least with regard to pedophile priests.

The Italian Bishops Conference has issued guidelines on child protection – telling Bishops they are not obliged to report to the police any priest that fucks children

http://tinyurl.com/d5xtnuz

Under Italian law, the bishop, given that he holds no public office nor is he a public servant, is not obliged to report illicit facts of the type covered by this document to the relevant state judicial authorities.”

Seems the reputation of the church continues to be viewed as more important than the welfare of young children !
