SEATTLE, WASHINGTON: Jan. 2, 2021.
Paul Etienne took over as Seattle’s archbishop in 2019. An alliance of practicing Catholics say the archbishop has refused to discuss their call for a citizen-led review of the Seattle Archdiocese’s private records on clergy abuse.

Their ranks include ex-federal prosecutors, a retired judge, a one-time assistant police chief, even a former priest. But a group of prominent Catholics say they still can’t get an audience with Seattle’s new archbishop in their push to address the fallout of a lingering scandal.

Poznan: The Church is responsible for pedophilia by priests. The Supreme Court dismisses the cassation appeal in a precedential case.
No one will now overturn the landmark judgment in the case of paedophilia in the Polish Church. On Tuesday the Supreme Court dismissed the cassation appeal of the Society of Christ. A woman who was raped by a priest in her childhood has won one million zlotys compensation.
– The jokes are over. The Supreme Court has just confirmed what has been clear in the world for a long time: the Church is not a sacred cow outlaw. This verdict throws into trash the guidelines of the episcopate, according to which only the perpetrator is […]
Cardinal Theodore McCarrick comparisons to St. Anne’s residential school:

As a survivor of St. Anne’s Indian Residential School in Canada, I noticed similarities with the investigation findings of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s report and with the findings at St. Anne’s residential school investigation, formerly located in Fort Albany on the west coast of James Bay.

Three Popes Enabled McCarrick’s Rise to Power Despite Well-Documented Evidence of His Serial Abuse of Seminarians and Minors.
On November 10, 2020, U.S. victims called on then President-elect Biden to respond. To date. No response.
In 1988, James Grein, a child victim of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, revealed the abuse to Pope John Paul II, telling him, “McCarrick has been abusing me since I was young.” In the room with John Paul II were the second and third most powerful Vatican officials, Italian Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican Secretary of State, and his personal secretary, now Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz. According to Grein, John Paul II, now a Catholic saint, responded with a […]
