Until the passive pew potatoes wake up, take their blinders off and stop aiding and abetting the institutional church with financial support, there will be little justice for the victims.

What is going on...they are minor children!!!..if u have to be a predator, go after 18-20 yo. They look like kids to me but regardless these children are gonna b sooo messed up!! Unlock the names..justice and retribution are in order as any other criminal inside jail..holy fuck the church and its secrets.

Something to keep in mind-
Child predators are very cunning and manipulative. They know every trick on how
to groom, threaten, lie, and put the fear of god into their victims and
sometimes even their family members. They also appear to do a lot of goods things, they can be very charismatic and you may think they would never harm a child. They have to be this way, in order to not get caught and to continue to abuse

Sexual predators are often powerful and well-loved. It would be comforting if
those who preyed on the vulnerable were obvious social misfits whose appearance
would somehow set off alarm bells and give us the willies or the creeps. They
rarely do. Usually, predators are among the last people we would suspect of
sexually violating others.  While they are grooming the child and even family members, they devote lots of time and energy building trust with them by giving them money and gifts. They tend to make the child feel that they are special and loved.

Also, we must stop thinking that because a man is old, that somehow he's automatically safe. It's just irresponsible to endanger kids by assuming an adult is harmless simply because he or she may be losing hair, wearing glasses, using hearing aids or walking with a cane. These can be signs of advancing age, but they are not signs that an individual is safe around kids.

It takes a lot of courage to come forward and take action about being sexually abused. This is not an easy thing to do, but it is extremely rare that a child predator has only one victim. Some have many. Child predators need to be kept far away from kids forever.
Your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

115 child sex abusers reported to the St Louis Archdiocese by 234 accusing victims between 1983 and 2003.?... It is hard to comprehend how many precious innocent children have been harmed within this diocese. The victims are very brave for speaking up even before the real explosion of child sex abuse within the Catholic church came to light after 2002. We can't even begin to image how many kids have been so badly harmed only because they happened to believe and trust. And this number does not include how many more priests/employees have been accused of child abuse since 2003.
If anyone has knowledge or may have been harmed by anyone in this diocese, please get help and find the courage to come forward and contact police or at least speak to someone you can trust. Your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

There is a known pedophile still at St. Rapheal in St. Louis Hills and the school/Archdiocese does nothing about it. I pity the parents who send their boys there daily & believe they are safe.
