[Those of you reading these posts via email or "readers" will probably not note that there is a new "Ferocious HSH The Judas Crisis Series" widget on the sidebar of the blog. It includes a few of the more important articles, included in this post:]
Father Gordon MacRae and making the abuse crisis come full circle — The Manchester Charter - This is an introduction to a critique of the Dallas Charter. You will meet the likes of Avery Cardinal Dulles and Father Richard John Neuhaus. There are links to many articles.
“The Judas Crisis” – Priests falsely accused and wrongly thrown out of the priesthood? Why? Follow the thirty pieces of silver – A HSH Special - This article demonstrates the horrific lack of due process of priests. You will be introduced to some of the key players in the game of kicking priests in the face, including Monsignor Edward Arsenault, Manchester attorney Peter Hutchins, Manchester Diocese spokesman Patrick McGee, not to mention The National Catholic Risk Retention Group.
♬ “Kíll the priest! ♬ Kíll the priest! ♬ Kíll the chí-ld ráp-ing priest!” ♬ (Meet the cheerleader) A HSH Special - In this article you will meet Monsignor Stephen J. Rossetti, one time president and director of the Saint Luke Institute (shudder) and – how to say it? — a one time paper-giver at the 2012 Pontifical Gregorian University Abuse Symposium (in preparation for the preparation of guidelines of the Holy See on how to treat abuse cases right around the world, coming up in another year or two). You will also see a never before published in full exchange of emails between Rossetti and Mr. Ryan MacDonald.
Abuse terminology that favors The Judas Crisis - This covers the specious terminology, which, however defined in this or that document, means something different in every case: substantiated / non-substantiated — credible / non-credible. For some, non-substantiated and non-credible means unfounded, which means false, which calumny. But not all are in agreement about that usage. Thus, something can be deemed credible (though not in court of law), though non-substantiated, thus effectively destroying the priesthood of a priest with no proof.
The Judas Crisis $$$ — settlements vs litigation - This brief post is very important to understand the monetary motivation for not providing due process to priests. This should be an eye-opener, and make you sick. This is how bad things can get. If bishops and chancery toadies can do this to their priests, how will they treat real abuse victims in the future?
Prisons are for free! Didn’t you know? - Part of the collateral damage of NCRRG policies is that innocent priests will end up in prison. The prisons babysit these innocent priests “for free.” Not giving innocent priests due process saves money. Using prisons saves more money. And tax-payers don’t care? Really?
The Judas Crisis: NCRRG (Arch)Dioceses complicit in encouraging murder of priests? - This is a rather hard-hitting article. It is commentary on an article written by the NCRRG. This is of utmost importance to understanding The Judas Crisis. This is ground-zero of The Judas Crisis. The cold-blooded, callous indifference of The Judas Crisis is most evident here.
Myriads of innocent Catholic priests committing suicide now in the works: Pope Benedict XVI not allerted? The Judas Crisis increases in strength… - This examines the fact of so many suicides of priests who have been accused, and demonstrates the probability that most, if not all suicides, are committed by those who are innocent of the charges. “Myriads” refers to all those who will commit suicide right around the world in the next few years should policies analogous to those of the NCRRG by ratified for use by the Holy See. This is catastrophic.
NOTA BENE: There are many more articles which are linked in those articles, and they are also important, such as the article critiquing the homosexualized VIRTUS® program: The VIRTUS Child Protection Program Team: We must be militant homosexualists! That particular article is important to read in regard to the Judas Crisis in that VIRTUS® is one and the same with the NCRRG.
NOTA BENE: We don’t want the following scene to be repeated. We need to do something about this.
So, again, why would any youngster want to become a priest? A youngster would want to become a priest because Jesus is calling him to be crucified to the world and himself and live for God alone, for all those whom Jesus is bringing to Himself. Being betrayed by Judas Priests is part of the job description, and is to be taken in stride, if at all possible (good formation is so very important!). It’s not Judas who is important. It is Jesus who is important!
