Priest who had sex with boys now tells how to smuggle ivory

Monsignor Cristobal Garcia was supposed to be kept away from children -- but we found him working with a squad of altar boys.(File 2005/Staff photo)
National Geographic‘s new issue exposes the ivory business, which has been hiding in plain sight since a worldwide trade ban was enacted in 1989. And a major player in the magazine’s story is a priest in the Philippines whom I wrote about in 2005 when investigating another global-trafficking phenomenon — the Catholic Church’s movement of sexual abuse suspects across international borders to escape justice.

The priest, Monsignor Cristobal Garcia, is now quoted as explaining how to smuggle ivory into the United States:“Wrap it in old, stinky underwear and pour ketchup on it.” And if an icon won’t fit in a suitcase? Here’s how National Geographic‘s Bryan Christy summarizes Garcia’s advice:“I might get a certificate from the National Museum of the Philippines declaring my image to be antique, or I could get a carver to issue a paper declaring it to be imitation or alter the carving date to before the ivory ban.”

Garcia also made provocative comments when I interviewed him about why he fled the U.S. in 1985. He admitted having sex with altar boys and supplying them with drugs — but said he did it because they threatened to accuse him of abuse. One boy “not only seduced me, he also raped me,” Garcia told me.

My story was part of a Dallas Morning News series called “Runaway Priests: Hiding in Plain Sight.” Reese Dunklin, Brendan Case and I documented more than 200 cases in which Catholic clergymen had gone abroad and stayed in ministry.

Most of our project disappeared from our website during a redesign years ago, so I’m republishing the Garcia story on the continuation of this post. It originally ran on March 16, 2005, under the headline:“Priest accused of rapes finds prominence; Filipino church leaders welcome Garcia despite incidents with altar boys.”

CEBU, Philippines – Here in the cradle of Asia’s lone Catholic
stronghold, the Rev. Cristobal Garcia is one of the most prominent
faces of the church.

He oversees worship practices for an archdiocese of 3 million
believers. He bears the baby Jesus’ image during annual ceremonies
that draw throngs into the streets. He led his cardinal’s advance
team in Rome five years ago when Pope John Paul II declared a
Filipino sainthood candidate to be blessed.

It’s a far cry from his despair of 20 years ago, when the Dominican
religious order expelled him after a nun told police that an altar
boy had been found in his bed in a Los Angeles rectory. The priest
fled to his hometown Cebu Archdiocese – which, despite a warning
from the Dominicans, put him to work anyway, with children, and
persuaded the Vatican to honor him with the title “monsignor.”

Respected leader

Cebu Cardinal Ricardo Vidal also has allowed Monsignor Garcia to
form a monastic religious society, whose young male recruits call
him their “supreme motivator.” The Society of the Angel of Peace is
based in a village outside Cebu, where the priest also oversees a
chapel, a children’s Sunday school program and a squad of altar
boys.

“I don’t think they [Filipino Catholic leaders] have the same
standards or concerns we do,” said lawyer Lynne Goodwin, who
defended the Dominicans in a 1988 lawsuit filed by one of Monsignor
Garcia’s former altar boys.“I don’t think there’s any consequence
for bad action.”

Paul Corral, who was the plaintiff in that case and obtained a
financial settlement, said he was stunned to learn of the
monsignor’s high-profile ministry.“I never thought he would
continue that charade,” he said.

‘Distressing’ situation

“I can’t overstate how distressing that is to us,” she said.“He’s
a bad actor in every conceivable way.”

Monsignor Garcia was never criminally charged.

Jane Levikow, who served as a nun at his parish in Los Angeles,
said she called police after a priest told her he had found Mr.
Corral in Monsignor Garcia’s bedroom on a Sunday morning in 1985.

Mr. Corral and his parents said they later spoke at length to
police. The parents said officers told them there was nothing they
could do because Monsignor Garcia had left the country, and their
son didn’t want to detail the abuse.

Police said they have no record of the matter.

Ms. Levikow, who is no longer a nun, said she’s not surprised. The
officer she spoke to, she said, seemed eager to protect the
church’s image and promised to “bury” the report.

“It was a different climate then,” Ms. Levikow said.

Two monsters inhabit the Philippnes!!! One came with Magellan and killed thousands of Filipinos while she was administering the Philippines!!!

The next monster is the daughter of the former and known as Protestantism!!! Both monsters believe in a Holy Trinity which they could not understand:

Trinitarians say that "the doctrine of the Trinity is [...] a deep mystery that cannot be fathomed by the finite mind."[7]

As mentioned above, one of the Philippine monsters is the Roman catholic Church!!! And adding insult to injury, Roman Catholic authorities themselves readily acknowledge that the monster is not similar to the Church of Christ or Christianity that was established by our Lord Jesus in the first century:

"We Catholics acknowledge readily, without any shame, nay with pride, that Catholicism cannot be identified simply and wholly with primitive Christianity, nor even with the Gospel of Christ, in the same way that the great oak cannot be identified with the tiny acorn."

Reference:(Adam, Karl. The Spirit Of Catholicism, p.2. Revised Edition. Translated by Dom Justin McCann, O.S.B. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, S.T.D., Censor Librorum. Imprimatur: Patrick cardinal hayes, Archbishop of New York. New York, USA: Image Books, 1954)

A Catholic authority has admitted that the Catholic Church cannot be identified with primitive Christianity or the first-century Church of Christ!!! Therefore, this monster is only claiming and her true nature is actually that of an apostate or false religion!!!

As mentioned above, the daughters of the Catholic Church are the Protestant cults numbering in the thousands with varied doctrines and, yet, Christ established only one true Church, His body!!!

These varied Protestant denominations and sects showcase the factional and shismatic characteristics of Protestantism. The book, Protestantism, edited by J. Leslie Dunstan, gives this descriptive account:

"Protestantism has produced a great number of separate organizationsdenominations and sects. No one really knows how many of these varied groups there are; nor would it do any good to attempt to count them because before the task was completed new groups would have formed and some of the existing groups would have disappeared . Such a state of affairs is inherent in Protestant principles." (p. 235)

Reference: Dunstan, J. Leslie, ed. Protestantism. p.235. USA: Washington Square Press, 1961.

Now, you have some ideas about the mentioned false religions!!!

The public has to know that both Catholicism and Protestantism are being taught by their leaders about the dogma of the Holy Trinity without themselves having a proper grasp of the doctrine!!! It is a mystery to them!!!

It is now time to abandon these spurious religions for their false doctrines will only bring you to eternal damnation in the lake of fire!!!

The Origin Of The Name "Catholic"

Where did the name Roman Catholic Apostolic Church originate? How did it come into existence? Who formulated it? Is it found in the Bible? These are but some questions which will aid any truth seeker in determining whether he should stay in or leave the Catholic Church.

From the book, Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, written by a Catholic priest, Clement H. Crock, we are told thus:

"In 1870, at the Vatican Council, the name 'Roman Catholic Church' was proposed, but it was rejected. The bishops assembled unanimously decided upon this official name:'The Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church,' as descriptive of Christ's Church."

This short quotation from a Catholic book amply answers the questions as to the origin of the official name of the Roman Church.

By contrast, Jesuit author Francis B. Cassily wrote in his book, Religion: Doctrine and Practice, on pages 442-443:

"5. Did Jesus Christ establish a Church? Yes, from all history, both secular and profane, as well as from the Bible considered as a human document, we learn that Jesus Christ established a Church, which from the earliest times has been called after Him the Christian Church or the Church of Christ."

Here is a priest who openly taught in question-and-answer form that the Church established by Christ is called the Church of Christ . Understandably, Mr, Cassily could not have stated otherwise, because he used the Bible as his reference.

Does the Bible indeed teach about the Church bult by Christ and how it was called by the Apostles? In Matthew 16:18, our Lord Jesus Christ declared in no uncertain terms: "I will build my Church."

Anyway, the Apostles called the Church built by Christ as the Church of Christ [Iglesia Ni Cristo][Romans 16:16; Acts 20:28, Lamsa]. How then should there be people who should change it? How should people then discard the name of Christ from His Church and replace it with another? Could the name of Christ be ignored and changed with another? How significant is the name of Christ? The Bible authoritatively stated in Acts 4:10, 12 that there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

On the basis of name alone, Catholics who are interested in the welfare of their souls should not hesitate to abandon the Catholic Church. And since the Protestant cults also came from the Great Hooker, they have to reject their cults too and join the true Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo)!!!

They are just up to bloating their "lolong" stomachs including that of their relatives!!!
