Catholic pedophile priest protected until 2015, Fr Ratigan

A recent high profile pedophile priest in the Catholic Church was Father Ratigan in 2015.  He had pictures on his computer of a staged striptease of a two-year-old girl out of a diaper, with an open crotch shot at the end.  When you hear the Catholic version of the truth, they tell you that it was a relative who was running around naked,

The truth, later revealed in the Graves report, page 90, was that

  • it was not a relative
  • it was an elaborate, staged strip tease
  • in the last shots, she had open crotch shots, until “her genitals were fully exposed”.

Ratigan was also known for looking up little girls skirts, and playing games with them where they would touch him or he would touch them.  Because his target age was so young, it is not known how many victims suffered further damage.

When his bishop, Bishop Finn, heard about it, he said “Boys will be boys”, according to sworn testimony.  Finn then hid him for 6 months until he was found hanging around children again.

The Catholic church then spent $1.4 million in legal fees to keep Bishop Finn out of jail for hiding this known pedophile priest.  “It also spent nearly $2 million in legal fees for civil sex abuse lawsuits, including $287,000 on four suits against the diocese involving Ratigan”, according to the Valenti report, reported int he Kansas City Star.

The Catholic John Jay report of 2004 shows that the Catholic church found at least 37 cases of priests having sex with children 3 years and under, although the number is probably much higher, since children that age can’t talk about it, and these 37 baby rapists were presumably caught in the act.


True Christians leaving the Catholic church in record numbers

That makes sense as the child rape scandal, and the Catholic church’s policy to hide every known pedophile priest, and fight every victim, in brutal defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14, comes to light.
More statistics from the article, many of which are based on a Pew Research study done in 2014 and released in 2015:
  • for every 1 Catholic convert, more than 6 Catholics leave the church
  • number of Catholics in the United States dropped by 3 million since 2007
  • Catholicism loses more members than it gains at a higher rate than any other denomination, with nearly 13 percent of all Americans describing themselves as “former Catholics.”
  •  the average Catholic is getting a bit older, with the median age of 49, up 4 years
  • The share of Massachusetts Catholics dropped 9 percentage points since the last survey in 2007
From a study by Marshall, “80% of Catholics are no longer Catholic by the time they turn 23“, where many of the statistics come from :
  • Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing (p. 24).
  • 10 percent of all adults in America are ex-Catholics, about 30 million people (p. 25).
  • Nearly 80 percent of cradle Catholics are no longer Catholic by the age of 23 (p. 33)
And that’s before everyone sees “Spotlight”, the Oscar winning movie that shows the truth about the Catholic church hiding 271 known pedophile priests in Boston alone, and using all of its power to hide them and to bully the victims.
Want to see a truer barometer? How full was your church last Sunday, and what about other Catholic churches that you’ve in the country (assuming you’ve gone on days other than Christmas Easter, et cetera)?
Boston’s largest church, the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, is rarely more than 10% full, even for the busiest mass on Sunday.

Bishop Finn, proven pedophile protector, finally forced to resign

Bishop Finn was finally forced to resign after years of public pressure.  He hid a known, proven pedohile names Fr Shawn Ratigan, who is now serving 50 years in jail for possession of child porn, after being hidden by Bishop Finn for at least a year after he first heard about it, and at least 6 months after a computer tech found disturbing and disgusting child porn on Ratigans computer.

May 19, 2010: Julie Hess, principal of St. Patrick’s School, meets with Vicar General Robert Murphy about concerns of parents and school staff over “boundary issues” between the Rev. Shawn Ratigan and children. Murphy that month informs Finn about the concerns.

June 2010: Finn follows up on the issue with Ratigan

Dec. 16, 2010: A computer technician examines a laptop owned by Ratigan and observes alarming pictures of children. He takes the laptop to a parish official, who calls Murphy and takes him the laptop. Before receiving the laptop, Murphy calls a Kansas City police captain, describing a single photograph of a naked child in a nonsexual pose. The captain says that was not likely considered child pornography.

“Catholic Truth” vs the real truth

Catholics claim that Fr Murphy “called the police” and “described a picture of a naked photograph of a child”, and the police and said it was not likely to be child porn.

The real truth

Murphy didn’t “call the police”, which implies calling the police station.  He actually called a police friend who was affiliated with the diocese.  Murphy found a bunch of disturbing pictures on Ratigan’s computer, and distorted the truth for the police friend.  The pictures will be described later (or you can scan down, and they would make a normal person puke).

Murphy said it was a nude photo of a relative, which deceptively sounds innocuous.

The truth about the pictures

The truth is that the pictures were not of a relative, but that’s not the disturbing part.  The pictures were STAGED PHOTOS OF A 2 TO 3 YEAR OLD GIRL DOING A STRIPTEASE, with the diaper being gradually moved, until “her genitals were fully exposed”.

Brilliant way of telling a fraction of the truth, don’t they?  Murphy wasn’t 100% completely lying (except about it being a relative, which makes it sound potentially innocent). But he was certainly lying in the eyes of God, intentionally trying to deceive his police friend

Proof, from the Catholic report, online

The proof is in the Graves report, the internal investigation done by the Catholic church by a company whose JOB is to protect the brand name of a company in crisis (from their web page), not to investigate.

The actual report is “hidden” online so it can’t be found easily in Google, but can be found in 2 places:

Read Page 90 and puke for yourself about the toddler doing a stages strip tease out of a diaper with fully vagina exposed, then decide if Fr Murphy was telling “the truth” or “the Catholic truth”.

Page 86 and 87 will tell you the true version of “calling the police”, and how a “nude child relative” was actually a STAGED strip tease.

At one point, when Finn was told about it, he said … brace yourself … “Boys will be boys”. The woman who said it later retracted it. Think she was afraid of her job? Who could possibly make that up, and why would they? (Source KSHB TV: Bishop Finn says “Boys will be boys” about pedophilia).

Think a CEO of any company wouldn’t be fired for hiding this from the ACTUAL police?  Of course, Ratigan also managed to be around children months later, although Finn says he told him not to, but Finn never made any effort to enforce it.  How would the CEO be judged if he knew about a known pedophile, and then allowed that pedophile unsupervised around children after not reporting the truth to the police?

And the evidence was destroyed, instead of being turned in by Finn. Again, what would you do to the CEO? Would you pay $1.4 million for his legal defense and another $300,000 for Ratigan? The Catholic church did.

Ratigan’s suicide note says he’s sorry for the children he hurt. When will we find out about the children he HURT, instead of just the ones he was looking at?
