Archdiocese Reports Four Priests to Secular Authorities

The accused are in these cases priests from the Archdiocese of Cologne, where sanctions have already been pronounced and canon law proceedings were initiated.

Cologne (kath.net/pek) On 29 October, the Archdiocese of Cologne sent information to the public prosecutors in Bonn, Düsseldorf and Koblenz in four cases on suspicion of sexual abuse. The information provided is about alleged acts from the 1970s and 1980s. The reports that have now been issued are based on new information from those affected or on the findings of internal file processing.

The accused are in these cases, priests from the Archdiocese of Cologne, where sanctions have already been pronounced and canon law proceedings initiated. All the accused are currently not on duty and they are not allowed to perform priestly ministry in public.

Vicar General Dr. Markus Hofmann said: "All findings, including these new findings, will be passed on to the prosecutor. This is how we consistently and transparently continue along the path our archbishop has set. "At present, additional files are being systematically recorded and reviewed,” Hofmann says. Regardless, these cases will all be reviewed and evaluated once again in the announced independent investigation.

Common sense states that sex abuse by priests is a psychological addiction. Nevertheless, the numbers are astronomical. It is almost as if this is a contagious physical disease. Numbers are now quoted of at least 40% of priests as well as the hierarchy are homosexual. The numbers could very well be much higher. ----Can you imagine this type of activity among the Jews in the land of Egypt? One cannot even imagine such activity from Moses or his brother Aaron who were prophets. We now have a pontiff who refuses to condemn such activity and even went to the point of rehabilitating one of its greatest offenders (McCarrick). He then had the nerve to send him as his representative to China on eight occasions and also to Iran.---If this "sign of the times" in regard to Pope Francis is accurate, then he needs to be removed more "sooner than later".
