Fr. Randy Benas is a very good priest. I don't think he is capable of doing anything like this. He will be in my prayers that he will pass through this trial in his life.

maria,

The victim has been timely in her action. So there are the following possiblities as per evidence:

1. There was no sex
2. There was forced sex
3. There was consensual sex

Only time will tell if 2 above (i.e rape) is true.

Fr. Randy, is that his name?

I wouldn't trust too much a guy by the name of Randy.
He may turn out to be too randy for his name.

It seems that you hate women. I guess there is no woman who like you at all.
