I continue to try and make my knowledge of clergy sex abuse crimes and cover-ups available to the Pittsburgh media and the Pittsburgh Diocese, sadly, they are not interested. I'm beginning to think, they may have covered something up in the past. Or, like the Commonwealth of PA, they could be pro-pedophile.

Letters are being sent out to the alumni of Serra Catholic High during the tenure of former Headmaster Father Michael LeDoux now that his credible accusation of sex abuse was brought to the attention of the Pittsburgh Diocese.
We now must ask will letters be sent to the alumni who attended Serra Catholic High School for the tenure of Brother Ken Ghastin. I've tried to alert Serra Catholic administrators, Pittsburgh media and of course Rita Flaherty at the Pittsburgh Diocese, I get the impression, Iím bothering these folks.
Is it possible that the protection of children takes a backseat to the reputation of the Pittsburgh Diocese, Serra Catholic High School and maybe even the so-called city of champs? Is Pittsburgh a pro-pedophile city?

Here's the story I wrote back in 2009 about Brother Ken Ghastin, it's been posted on Bishop-accountability for years. Maybe no one ever goes to the world's most respected research tool on the catholic church and their dysfunctional sex freaks.
I welcome any suggestions. Maybe a real journalist from outside PA would like to call the Pittsburgh Diocese or the members of the Pittsburgh media and get their take on the matter.

Maybe advocates and survivors of clergy sex abuse should contact the Pittsburgh Diocese and members of the Pittsburgh media and ask them why my concerns for the safety of children are simply being ignored.

I am a proud graduate of Serra Catholic and honestly am sick to my stomach over the accusations against Father Michael. I honestly believe he is innocent!!!! He did nothing but instill respect and school spirit while at Serra. I want Father Michael to know that he has helped me to become the Mother that I am today and hope he knows I am thinking and praying for him!!!

Douglas Nowicki was the secretary of education under Bevilacqua and Wuerl. Nowicki was aware of all the sexual abusers and all the cover-ups.

Nowicki is just one more dysfunctional sex freak , just like Wuerl, Zubik and all the others.

Wuerl wrote the preface to Marcial Maciel Integral Priestly Formation Book which has already been banned by Pope Benedict XVI. The word integral implied integrating the worldly with the church. The church always taught the opposite -- to detach yourself from the worldly. For those who don't know, Maciel was the founder of the Legionnares of Christ. He was suspended by Pope Pius XII for morphine addiction in the 50s. After Pius died Maciel was reinstated, because years prior he gave lots of money to Cardinal Clemente Micara.

I knew Ghastin, and I went to school with one of your boys, I believe. I left there in 1988, but would have graduated in 89. Never would have thought anything out of the ordinary about Brother Ken. Seemed like a genuinely nice guy, and was well liked and well respected by all the students there, including myself. to read of the allegations against him is a pretty tough pill to swallow. I would never have expected that from him, and from those I know who attended school with me, neither would they. In fact, at my entire time at Serra, I never got the feeling that anything of this magnitude was taking place with any of the students or faculty there.

The role of a predator is to lure his/her victims while maintaining a near-perfect reputation for others. Father Ron Lenguin continues to spit out lies on behalf of the Pittsbrugh Diocese. I chaleenge any catholic or representative from the Pittsburgh Diocese to a public debate on just how many crimes against innocent children by dysfunctional sex freaks were covered up by Donald Wuerl, Zubik and so many others.

I was never hit upon by any priest. Mike sounds paranoid. He doth protests too much.
