Catholic priest in charge of sex scandal caught with kiddy porn

It’s beginning to look like any effort to “clean up” the Catholic church of pedophiles is an impossible task. Consider this: Pope Benedict XVI’s right hand man in charge of helping him track down pedo priests, Father Riccardo Seppia, was arrested last May when he was caught trying to arrange sexual encounters with his drug dealer. Now, it seems as though another priest in charge of investigating pederasts has been arrested of actually being one. Married Jarvis [Not a name but a title for some reason] was recently commissioned by the Diocese of Plymouth, England to ensure that pedophiles would not have access to children. He’s been fired from his job after police found over 4000 sexually explicit pictures of minors. Way to clean house, guys.

It’s become almost normal for this kind of thing to happen. We should be utterly shocked and dismayed at the carelessness displayed by the Catholic Church. It’s the equivalent of putting Ted Bundy on a FBI serial killer task force and being surprised when all the women on your team keep disappearing.

Why should we trust this institution to do the right thing? It’s been covering up sexual scandals for the past 20 centuries, and I doubt they’ll stop anytime soon. If you want them to stop fucking little children, we’re going to have to convince a billion of their followers to stop giving them billions of dollars every year. We’d also need to take the huge sums of money they have in the bank and give it to the countless kids who have been scarred for life by these bastards. Sure, it won’t give them their life back, but I think a life of material comfort courtesy of the very institution that covered that shit up sounds like a bit of justice to me.

Check out this cool video below exposing how long the church has known about sexual abuse in its own organization. Educational, to say the least.

    According to the sources I have read (including the one you linked to) Ratzi’s right-hand man is Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco.
    Riccardo Seppia is just a parish priest in Bagnasco’s archdiocese.

    This is exactly what we would expect from a sacred authority who only answers to a god(s) and hasn’t any evidence to back up claims made. But, why would any evidence be necessary when people are entirely too eager to believe without it. It’s a perfect match, don’t you think?

    Without speaking to the content of the attached video, it’s obvious the problem is not only pervasive in the CC, it’s gotten to the point that it is unavoidable. The other glaring issue I see, as I continue to read these stories for years now, is that there seems to be no psychological test any of these priests goes through to get their job. If there is, it is obviously not working, or there is something else truly sadistic about how they live that turns them into these serial monsters.

    The other concern is, is the Pope vetting who he assigns to these “protective” posts, or is he just throwing someone into them hastily in order to tamp down the bad PR quickly because it looks like action is being taken? If there is vetting, does he do it himself? If not, who? Has the “Holy See” ever met the people in person that are put into these posts? What information on these people does he have when the decision is made? And a hundred more questions are there for the asking…

    I think the post shows an horrible reality, but it requires some fixes to the facts.

    Regarding the most confident sources I found for the first case:

    http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2072613,00.html#ixzz1NUNYXGZg

    Ricardo Seppia is NOT Benedicto XVI right’s hand, but he was a priest in the “archdiocese of an influential Italian Cardinal who has been working with Pope Benedict XVI on reforms to respond to prior scandals of pedophile priests”. So, it is an indirect relationship with the Pope.

    And regarding the second case, Married Jarvis, that in the provided link seens to be really called Christopher Jarvis (confirmed by Google cache), but he was a “Child protection official”, but not a priest.

    In any case, the situation is UGLY for the Catholic church. But for the sake of the facts, please fix the post.

    It’s so ironic and predictable. I mean, a Catholic priest against pedophilia? It’s so unnatural and translucent.

    Looking at the article more carefully, his name is Christopher Jarvis. “Married Jarvis” is a descriptor (and evidence of really bad editing). What the writer meant to say was something on the order of “Jarvis, a married man”. He’s not a priest, but a former social worker hired by the Catholic Church. One wonders why he left his former job…
