So...what was the priest doing in a Sunnyvale MOTEL with a 29 year old WOMAN?
Reading her the bible?
are you certain that he was in the motel? were you there too? if it is true that he is there, who are you to judge him? you are the God? ye who has no sin, cast the first stone!
hahahaha, another priest, ANOTHER priest, this is the not the first, and surely not the last, perhaps the idiots showing support are surprised it was with a woman, instead of a helpless child,
perhaps this will enlighten all of you, and show you that your christianity and all your religions are based on SEX/FERTITLITY cult worship,
look at the numbers of all the priest molestations, there is a world wide campaign underway, and you are happily the victims,
drown him, burn him, crucify him for all the world to see,
and the reason for so many women here offering support, he has been working on getting the right one in the right situation at the right time,
I don't know about the "crucify and burn him" part, but otherwise I say: "Here! Here!" I don't believe that we can stereotype all priests by Randy's actions because I know there are good priests and the actions of one or even several cannot negate the good of the many good priests attending to God's work. It is for that reason that I believe priests caught with thier hand in the cookie jar need to be dealt with severely because their actions can have a negative impact on the entire priest population and Catholicism at large. Just look at this string of comments. Randy's actions are categorically being termed "A Catholic Thing" when in fact, it's just a Randy Thing. Randy is Filipino too. Does that mean this is a Filipino thing? Both suggestions are ridiculous. Assign blame where it belongs. Randy did this. Randy needs to except responsibility, leave the Church and find work in a profession wherein trysts in Hotel 6s are acceptable and expected.

Wake up America, don't be idiot about this. please be realistic when you speak. Ensure brain is engaged before engaging mouth. I sthis clear for everyone out there?
Melchor: Are you kidding?? Your child's teacher may have a penis as well. Does this give him license to "minister" to her sexuality when he's supposed to be teaching her algebra? Your wife's doctor may have a penis too. Does this give him license to "minister" to her while she's under anesthesia? Or how about the local policeman who stops your mother for having a broken tail light? Is it okay for him to "check under the hood" with both mom and the car? Rape is rape. Even if all were concentual acts, would it be appropriate to engage in such activity "on the clock" in a professional environment? Cut to the chase. If the postman shows up at your door and your dog starts to mate with his leg, civilized people admonish the dog. Should we not expect the same from a person tasked with ministering the Word of God? Rest assured, my brain is in gear. Is yours?

I'm amazed at the stupidity of some of the people here. Search priest in Google. Look at the first thing that comes up: priest-pedophile crisis. Priests get horny too, y'know.
Perth: Come on! I get horny everytime I go to the Gold Coast in December too. But if I show up as a priest, start offering confessions and start humping everyone who kneels down in front of me - chances are I'm going to end up in jail - and rightfully so. Being horny does not give license to take advantage of one's authority and profession. Not even in the Outback...

I stand corrected. Truly a profound oversight. If in fact the evidence suggests that the woman was in fact victimized and the sex was either not consentual or she was mislead into believing the act was acceptable as a result of her spiritual mentor's deception, then as Christians, we should pray for her healing and commend her for having the courage to come forward with the same sense of focus that we should pursue a fair and just sentence for Randy.

Well said, Barbara! Father Cassanova is now moving on with life as if nothing happened. Yet the Church is still paying his living expenses through our collection basket. Sounds like a pretty good gig for doing nothing but shagging in a Motel 6.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Father Randy's legal problems. He was a fair honet priest while at Scared Heart Church. I will pray for him at Mass.

Father Randy Benas is a sexual pervert in Philippines with many girls every time he spent vacation. One of his girlfriend was my ex-girlfriend and she told me how Father Randy Benas treat her during sexual intercourse. She told me lots of stories about him and also told me that he loves to drink and watch nude girls dancing in some night clubs in Manila. I'm not surprised to find out this news.
