Catholic Priest admits child rapes in 1962, church hides docs for 50 years

In another typical story of Catholic pedophile priests, the Catholic church knew that Father Michael Cody in Seattle admitted that “he has molested at least eight girls twelve years of age or younger” in 1962.  SO the Catholic church hide the documentation, set the priest free to rape more children, and he raped at lest 8 more young girls between 1968 and 1975.

When did the Catholic church admit they had documentation about it?  Over FIFTY years later.

More facts:

  • he wasn’t “defrocked” until 2005
  • he died in 2015
  • By 1988, he is estimated to have raped at least 40 girls and one boy
  • he never served a day in jail, thanks to the Catholic church

Catholic “Pedophile priest paradise” in Alaska

The Catholic Church is famous for taking their known pedophile priests and moving them to places where they are unknown.  Of course these priests go onto rape more children, and the Catholic Church moves them again.

In an article in the Seattle Newspaper, The Stranger called “The pedophiles paradise”“, they show examples of multiple multiple pedophile priests raping children in Alaska after they were discovered raping children in the United States, and they show some of the suicidal victims that were affected.

A few highlights from the article:

  • 15 year old Rachel testified that Father James  Poole had given her gonorrhea, and by 1978 she was pregnant with his child. In an interview with The Stranger, she said Poole encouraged her to get an abortion and tell the doctors she had been raped by her father.
  • 15-year-old Rachel Mike tried to kill herself for the 3rd time after being raped by a Catholic pedophile priest, Father James Poole
  • Father George Endal, allegedly walking in on another priest performing oral sex on a 6-year-old boy and doing nothing to stop it. Endal is accused of raping or molesting several boys.
  • Father James Poole—a popular priest, radio personality on KNOM, and, according to allegations in at least five lawsuits, serial child rapist. Father Poole has never been convicted of a crime, but the Jesuits have settled numerous sex-abuse claims against him since 2005, in excess of $5 million
  • According to the allegations, Father Joseph Lundowski molested or raped James Does 29, 59–71, and 73–94, plus Janet Does 4–7—a total of 40 children—giving them “hard candy, money he stole from the collection plate, cooked food, baked goods, beer, sacramental wine, brandy, and/or better grades (silver, blue, or gold stars) on their catechism assignments in exchange for sexual favors.”
  • Roosa tells a story about Poole molesting a 9-year-old girl in Portland, Oregon, while simultaneously having an affair with the girl’s mother. Poole supposedly told the girl’s mother he would quit the priesthood and marry her, but abruptly returned to Alaska. The girl’s mother committed suicide. According to Wall and Roosa, that same girl says she was molested by another priest, one who has been listed in at least three settlements in cases that reach back to the 1960s. They say that, in one incident, this priest was called to a house in Yakima to administer last rites to a dying woman in 1989. “He raped the woman on her deathbed,” Roosa says. “He told the family to go into the other room, the husband heard a weird noise, went into the bedroom, and caught him raping his unconscious wife.”
  • they knew of 345 cases of molestation in Alaska by 28 perpetrators who came from at least four different countries.

The res of the article is just as sickening, and shows the organized evil of the Catholic church.

 

 

Seattle Catholic church admits at least 77 pedophile priests

In March 2016, the Seattle Times published an article about a Catholic pedophile priest named Father Michael Cody, who eventually admitted raping 41 children, and was protected and hidden by the church for his entire career.

The Catholic church in Seattle had finally posted a list of the 77 pedophile priests that it has known about since the early 1960s.  According to the top comment, it includes priests from every single parish.

It is similar to the Boston Catholic church’s list of 271 known pedophile priests that would still be hidden by the Catholic church today if it weren’t for the movie “Spotlight”.

<“Spotlight” spoiler alert>

What is interesting is that if you look at the frequent reassignment record of a lot of the priests, you can see the exact pattern that they used in Boston, which helped the Spotlight team discover the initial 70 priests for their initial article.

Catholic priests who spent 3 years or less at a church had over an 80% likelihood of being a known pedophile.

In the movie, when they perform this test, they found 87 priests, but they only brought 70 of them to the church lawyer at his home on Christmas in the scene near the end of the movie, where the lawyer circled the list of all 70 priests.

Since then, the Boston Catholic Church has admitted 271 pedophile priests, so that simple test certainly isn’t the only indication.

The article also talks about the Catholic Church’s “secret files”, which every bishop keeps about the Catholic pedophile priests in his archdiocese.  In tiny Altoona, Pennsylvania, the Catholic Church was hiding 115,042 documents about pedophile priests.  That number is not a typo, and can be found through Google.

Specifically, this article talks about the “secret files” for a serial pedophile priest named Fr Michael Cody, who admitted raping 41 children over 20 years, although the real number will never be known.
