Since we ran our story on the recently released documents implicating Cardinal Roger Mahony and other church leaders in the decades-long conspiracy to hide pedophile priests while preventing victims from speaking up (Newly Released Letters Expose Decades Of Shocking Cover-Ups Of Child-Molesting Catholic Priests), many readers have asked what consequences have resulted from these revelations. The cry for justice has been strong and given the laxity of the Catholic church responding to such cries in the past, little hope was held that any punishment would result. However…

As of Thursday, January 31, 2013, in a move that surprised many, Los Angeles Cardinal Roger M. Mahony has been “stripped of his official duties.”

Prior to this announcement, it seemed quite possible that, given the passage of time and the history of non-action in the past, Mahony and other were not likely to suffer any personal professional or legal rebuke due to their “tampering” of witnesses and evading the law in regards to their hiding of pedophilia priests and quelling actions by victimized children or their families. In a piece this week in the Los Angeles Times, the point is made that, legally, the statute of limitations has run out on most of the applicable charges:

A nearly insurmountable barrier is the statute of limitations, the experts said. A quarter-century has passed since Mahony and his chief aide for sex abuse cases, Msgr. Thomas J. Curry, wrote memos outlining strategies to prevent police investigations of three priests who had admitted abusing boys. The 1986 and 1987 letters fall decades beyond the three-year statute of limitations for felonies such as child endangerment, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to commit those offenses.

Topix is nonsectarian, or is that only when it's convenient for you?

The truth is that you are nothing more than a pathological liar who has been caught with his pants ablaze. You have offered me no reason to discuss any issue other than that one, sweetie. In fact, your pathetic dissembling over that truth only encourages me to keep pointing out that truth to you.

The Bible paints saints warts and all, so why would it hide a homosexual relationship between David and Jonathan? Then again, for some, why is every relationship between 2 men or 2 women always sexual?

It's neither mine, nor is it a pathological lie: instead, it's the truth you continually refuse to face, which is why you keep dodging Rabbi Stein's challenge:

Buttercup, as long as it is no more than your dubious word that it is in fact, "Rabbi Stein's challenge", it remains your Pathological lie. Why is that concept so difficult for you to grasp?

I was only asking you about SAME SEX relations as that is what you were talking about. YOU SAID that all male-male and female-female were sexual in nature.

Obviously you're not up to that challenge, are you? That's why you have resorted to stoning this messenger -- Stein's messenge is just too much for you to honestly face.

Until you prove your claim, that it is in TRUTH Stein's challenge, no such challenge exists to be answered.

He can't get off the hook until he does what you have asked.

But, don't waste too much time and effort trying to make him own up to his refusals. It's not worth it.

Who knows. Maybe Rabbi Stein will actually show up one of these days. If he does, it will be good for the conversation.

In the meantime, just keep on posting your positive message and relying on the Teachings of Christ Jesus. They're good and are supposed to be used for this purpose.

I know that he's never fully going to fess up to what he has been doing with his Rabbi puppet for the last couple of years, he's in too deep, he's just going to continue to duck and cover every time I rattle his chain over it. But it is just too much fun watching him squirm.

Loved my Daddy. Awesome guy. He taught me very well. I can fish, hunt, farm...do just about anything...I sure do miss him. That lung cancer took only a couple of months to get him from the diagnosis in last January, he was gone March 6, 2010.

He was able to stand on Monday on his own and take a shower. Sleepy Tuesday. By Wednesday we had a hospital bed in the living room and by Saturday at 2 p.m. he was gone. I had the great honor of being there for his passing.

He came back to see my on the day of his funeral in a golden orb. He came to me after I returned home and sat at my bedside and touched my legs. He came by as a presence most recently when I was getting ready for my New Year's Day party.

I do miss my Daddy very much. He still gives me comfort and advice when I ask him for it. A Father's love transcends the grave. Isn't that what the love of God our FATHER is all about?

Sorry that you don't experience this Joe. It is really quite awesome.

Mama, Sister and I are going on a Hawaiian cruise in April, his birth month. I am so glad that he and Mama were able to go to Alaska for their 50th Anniversary. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!
