Canon Law Society of Amerika and zero due process for priests

clsa

This is for Tuesday 11 October 2016 // 11:00 AM – Seminars on Day 2 of the convention of the Canon Law Society of America (CLSA).

This is not about convicted clerics, but those who are merely accused. Thus, any old accusation comes in and Father is instantaneously sent for a psycho-sexual battery of examinations lasting many weeks if not the usual six months. According to the John Jay report, this has also many times included the continuous rape of the priest by way of various methods of plethysmography, showing him porn of all sorts. That any of this is given legitimacy by even discussing it as that which is in some way a good thing to do all the while with zero due process for the priest, stripping him of all civil and ecclesiastical protections in the law, is diabolical and symptomatic of what is wrong with what Pope Francis calls the self-absorbed, self-referential church in which church leaders congratulate themselves in all of their Promethean Neo-Pelagian ways that oust also the innocent into the darkest of existential peripheries.

Perhaps Father Golden is going to speak against all this. But just to say: there is no “voluntary consent” or other niceties. The priests I know who have been brought to face such as nightmare are simply given an ultimatum from on high: Either you submit to this torture or you will be dismissed from the clerical state (laicized). In other words: Submit to the perverted sex-shows mandated by the bishops and Rome, or forget about being a priest any longer. It’s happened many times. Again, this is also for merely accused priests who could well be innocent. Nobody who could do anything about this gives a damn. I wonder what they will think when they face their judgment and their own damnation is in the offing.

There are those who are amazed that such things could happen or can be discussed. But I’ll ask them this: Are you amazed that the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception was crucified and that you celebrated that death and resurrection this very day at Holy Mass? We’re talking about His priests getting crucified. Forget your “pious ears” and your being offended before such impolite topics. That Jesus was stripped and scourged and beaten and nailed to a tree isn’t a polite topic either. BUT YOURS ARE THE SINS THAT DID THIS. Instead of complaining to me, do something about helping priests to have due process. Stop the bishops from raping their priests at “treatment centers.”

    Sigh. All I can think to do is pray. Lord, have mercy on us, most especially our beloved priests.

    I thought the church was against degradation of humans? Showing porn to another is a sin. Showing porn to a priest is a sin that cries to Rome. Say the priest has a porn addiction, this is damaging to him. If he doesn’t have a porn addiction it’s damaging to him as it may create one. If he has lived his life as a devout Catholic and not been exposed to porn, it is shocking, depraved and reprehensible to force his exposure. What’s wrong with these people? The ones who want to corrupt priests, I mean.

    It’s diabolical.

  4. Too many are letting Satan have free reign.

    Would contributing to Opus Bono Sacerdotii help? It sounds like they recommend avoiding “assessments” which have inherent conflicts of interest–in other words, the priest has the right to refuse. I know very little, just asking what an innocent priest who is now going through the accusation process can do–because although my sins did this, I don’t know what to do next, other than pray and confess my sins ( that is, if any priest is left).

  6. Father George David Byers

    Yes! Opus bono is good.
