Because only a very small percentage of abuse cases becomes known the legitimate assumption exists that practically all Catholic ministers, priests and bishops and cardinals and popes, are sex criminals. The Catholic Church wants the world to believe that 4% of its ministers are criminals and so wants to achieve that the real situation is not recognized, that this percentage is not much less than 100%. Read more:

The percentage of abuses that become known is probably very small compared to the sexual abuses of children that really take place. With very small I am thinking of one or two per cent. The reasons for this – that so few cases of abuse become known - have been discussed on this website quite often, the last time in 2011 Jul 28 – 1.5 Years of Catholic abuse scandal

Now today I read about a statistical percentage of priests who are known to be abusers and they are 4 per cent of priests and that means to me that basically all priests are abusers and that a priest who is not guilty of this crime is an exception.

And this again tells me, because people will become more and more aware of this just discussed fact, that the whole scandal can only go in one direction and that is the direction foretold in the prophecies.

The best known prophecy in this respect is Revelation. There, in Revelation 17:16, it says that the harlot, the whore Babylon, shall be made desolate and naked, and her flesh shall be eaten, and she shall be burnt with fire.

And these are just other words for what I read recently: Any other organization, revealed to have had, over decades, an official policy of covering up such vile crimes would be disbanded, its leaders put on trial, its assets seized. No decent person would want anything to do with it.

This future scenario could also be described this way: More and more people will become aware that the Catholic Church is a terrorist organization and that it therefore will be broken up and that its members, especially its leading members, will be prosecuted, and that the assets belonging to this church will be taken away from it.

Now this report I read states: The 4,392 priests who were accused amount to approximately 4% of the 109,694 priests in active ministry during that time.

The report is from the USA and is called the John Jay Report. The 2004 John Jay Report commissioned by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) was based on survey completed by the Roman Catholic dioceses in the United States. The surveys filtered provided information from diocesan files on each priest accused of sexual abuse on each of the priest’s victims to the research team, in a format which did not disclose the names of the accused priests or the dioceses where they worked.

The 2004 John Jay Report was based on a study of 10,667 allegations against 4,392 priests accused of engaging in sexual abuse of a minor between 1950 and 2002.

And now follows what critics have to say to such reports like the study conducted by researchers at John Jay College in New York:

Victims dismissed church-sponsored study as a whitewash of an institutional coverup.

A group that represents victims of clergy abuse said bishops continue to cover up crimes, and that shame leaves many more victims of abuse silent.

“Predictably and conveniently, the bishops have funded a report that tells them precisely what they want to hear: It was all unforeseeable, long ago, wasn’t that bad and wasn’t their fault,” said David Clohessy, executive director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).

“The reason this crisis is happening in the Church is because the criminals are hidden and coddled and promoted rather than ousted as in other institutions,” Clohessy said.

He said the study was based on self-reporting by bishops who are “far more reluctant to report recent crimes by young priest who still face prosecution and litigation versus older priest for whom the criminal and civil statue of limitations has expired.”


One can therefore assume that as good as all Catholic priests commit such crimes. And because all their superiors, like bishops, archbishops, cardinals and popes, were also once priests, as good as all these have also committed such crimes and there is no reason to assume that they stopped doing it when they got promoted.

The opinion seems to exist, with observers and especially also with representatives of victims, that these superiors of priests should have any reason to do something against abusing priests. This would be like expecting a Mafia boss to keep Mafiosi working for him from pursuing his business.

It is of course unfair to compare the Catholic Church with the Mafia because the Mafia mainly causes material damage, and that is temporary, but the damage caused by the Catholic Church has an effect on the souls of people, and is therefore for ever.

Jesus always immediately confronted clerics when he came across them. Not so when he came across crooks and prostitutes. A prostitute really sells something, a priest however pretends to sell access to God and that is exactly what he does not do; they are soul merchants because when one does what they say and hold up then that is an almost secure way to end up in hell.

When a victim goes to a bishop to complain to him about a priest who has abused him, then that is like a victim of a Mafioso going to his Mafia boss expecting him to support him. This comparison is so simple but the whole world seems to think bishops are or should be interested to take action against abusing priests. Most probably a bishop only became a bishop because he can represent the interests of the other criminals best and can best act for them.

What is now the actual purpose of this John Jay Report?

It is to make us believe that 4 per cent of Catholic ministers are criminals. It is a report that comes out of the Catholic Church. And when the general public believes this report then it has achieved its purpose. And the real aim is of course that the world does not perhaps gets the idea about the real situation, that the percentage is not 4% but not much less than 100%. And when one reads the comments to the John Jay Report then one can definitely get the impression that the Catholic Church is successful. The commentators do not seem to have grasped at all the real purpose of the John Jay Report.

This month the Taoiseach
2011 Jul 23 – Ireland: The Taoiseach
said, the rape and torture of children were downplayed or ‘managed’ by the Catholic Church. Now that was on 20 July 2011, less than 14 days ago.

And now we want to have a look at how the Catholic Church does this with an example, how they manage this.

On Saturday, 16 July 2011, 14 days ago, the pastor of the St Joseph parish in Salzgitter –Lebenstedt, Pastor Andreas L. (46), gets arrested. The manager, Suffragan Bishop Heinz-Günter Bongartz of the Hildesheim diocese reacts immediately. The diocese has already informed the prosecution authorities about the case, he announces. What he does not announce is that only a crime was submitted to the prosecution authorities for checking, without giving a name. The next step of the manager is then to meet the parish council, on Tuesday, 19 July 2011. This of course is announced publicly. And then also that the bishop himself will lead the service on Sunday. And after the service he will be prepared to a talk with parish members. And the press then also brings pictures of him in the middle of his sheep. An excellent manager:

As long as the parents did not go to the police the children of the parish were put at the disposal of Mr Andreas L. And that for at least 4 years. But in case the parents now bring the state in on the case, one was prepared for this. The prosecution authorities knew about it and that was the first thing that was announced. The prosecution authorities then had to publicise a statement that the Hildesheim diocese had submitted anonymous facts of the case, without giving the name of the priest.

The Taoiseach says, the Catholic Church ‘manages’ crimes.

One should consider whether it would not be advisable to exchange the bishop’s Hildesheim diocese and let him become bishop of Rome, that would certainly be a modest improvement of the present situation.

On 20 July 2011 the Taoiseach opened the hunt for the Roman Church and now the promotion of Mr Heinz-Günter Bongartz from Hildesheim to Rome would be a small enrichment of the spectacle.
