Holy Father Patrick, pray for us

Here is something really happy to start off the New Year... It also has a bearing on the Orthodox.  The trail of Archbishop Seraphim (Storheim) commenced on Monday in a Canadian court.

Catholic Priests Are 'Entirely False'
By Dave Pierre | January 02, 2011 | 20:02

In a stunning ten-page declaration recently submitted to the Los Angeles
County Superior Court, veteran attorney Donald H. Steier stated that his
investigations into claims of sexual abuse by Catholic priests have
uncovered vast fraud and that his probes have revealed that many accusations
are completely false.

If true... on the one hand, certainly I'm glad that not as many people were abused...  but to claim such a thing if it didn't happen... that's not something that should be joked about, let alone lied about for financial gain Angry

Yeah, I remember hearing about this a couple weeks ago. Basically, you've got too many gold-diggers who heard (I got money out of it) and went for it, not caring who they took down for their greed.

There should be an addendum to the laws:  Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy millstone-prone neighbor, or else a millstone around thy neck will be better for you too, if not replacing their necks!

Not all accusations were against guilty men...

I should word it differently.  More like, the millstone you present against them has to be put around somebody  Wink

This is good news and, frankly, not unexpected. All too often in this world, guilt by association tars many innocent people.

It makes a mockery of those who truly were damaged as children.  I was telling Father Ambrose that for many of us this "news" comes as no surprise.    So many priest's lives ruined, and many of us can name a few of them.  It is why the Church is so careful and does not simply lash out the way the rest of the world does.  But it is done now.  I hope the world is happy.
