At age five, 1954, "the Bishop" (Chicago's Cardinal Stritch) stood over me and said, I had to "stop babbling" about what the priest did to me. It took me 40 years to talk about it again. Today, I babble.

Mahony asks, Why now? then admits to a subpoena on 22 priests for US Attorney, and even the Cardinal wonders why there was no investigation earlier

By Kay Ebeling

Cardinal Mahony has been wondering when someone would start an investigation himself: “Why now does this come up when we said that years ago?” he said in a KNX radio interview yesterday. “We said in our Report to the People of God that, yes, this way of dealing with these issues has evolved, and during those early years it was not handled right, we've said that over and over again so that's why it puzzles me Why now."

I finally heard it, just after posting a story this afternoon saying, “Persons like me who are in this crime victim community have walked around with our mouths hanging open for years wondering where is law enforcement” at the other site where I write, LA City Buzz Examiner.

The victims want to know too, Why now? Why not sometime during the last eight years or so, as stories of rampant sex crimes against children in the Church broke across the country?

“In those years ago, decades ago, people didn't realize how serious this was and so rather than pulling people out of ministry directly and fully they were moved.”

(ME: LIAR: That is a barefaced lie, a slap in the face of everybody on Earth, not just the LA parish members and Catholic administrators but an insult to the intelligence of everybody within earshot of Cardinal Mahony.)

In the 1960s there was nothing wrong with raping children, claims Cardinal Roger Mahony in this interview with KNX?

Here is more of what Mahony said to KNX yesterday:

“There are 22 priests named in this (mumbles) subpoena, 2 are dead the other 22 returned to the lay state and are long gone so I am mystified as to what this is all about.”


Mahony on the radio continued:

We have not been told anyone is a target of an investigation but rather the subpoena called for 22 priests to have their documents sent over there, so they were the ones of interest as far as we know, apparently if I can glean between what's being leaked etc.

(ME: Okay, so now we know the US Attorney requested files on 22 priests - and guess what. The US Government has more clout than say the lead plaintiff firm in the LA Clergy Cases, Kiesel Boucher Larson et al in Beverly Hills, to get those documents out of the Cardinal.)

Mahony on the radio continued:

It seems to have to do with who got transferred when and how and whether or not all the folks in the parishes were notified. And most of these situations of those 22 priests go back into sixties and seventies

Years and years ago.

(ME: Oh good, the old that was years and years ago defense.)

Mahony continued:

And there’s no question about it

The way things were done then is not the way things are done today. We admitted in the People of God Report on our website, a complete breakdown of all of those situations, all of our failures along the way so we don’t know where this is coming from.


Me: It gets back to who was in office the last eight years, steering the US Attorneys and the Justice Department and it is no coincidence that the leak about the investigation of Roger Mahony came out within minutes of the US Senate Confirmation of Eric Holder as the Attorney General in the Barack Obama administration.

To me, it's like Thomas O'Brien said, I have a new boss now, and this is what I am going to do, when the California Central District US Attorney's office apparently leaked news of the investigation to the LA Times Wednesday.

Mahony was on KNX radio yesterday commenting on the investigation of the LA Archdiocese for its mishandling of pedophile priests.

It's about time.

Master Pedophile Pimp Mahony is "mystified" that he is under investigation? Pathetic old queen, clueless as ever.

Kay, you're right on target with your remarks on Holder as new AG.

Ain't this flippin' grand? I'd do a jig if it weren't for my lumbago!

"Even the quoted words have been altered by Mahony's PR (laity paid for) spin machine aleady.

The original headline read "Shocked & Mystified".

Yeah, "shocked" like Claude Raines as 'Louie' in CASABLANCA being "SHOCKED" that there was gambling going on at RICK'S, and ordering a raid, while collecting his payoff for winnings at the Roulette Wheel....

Mahony is a DEVIL, plain and simple. Not one word from Rog can be trusted, PERIOD.

Mahony is in a long line of NOT GUILTY, or jailed, "innocent", including, but not limited to: Idi Amin, Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Tse Tung, Kim Il Jung, Cardinal Torequemada, Cardinal Richelieu, Cardinal Bernard Law, Pontus Pilate, Judas Iscariot, The Snake In The Garden Of Eden, etc.

Edmund Burke reminds each of us: "The only condition for the triumph of evil is for good men (or women) to do nothing."

Want Rog 'Mahal' Mahony to twist in the wind, S L O W L Y? Do what St. Peter Damien correctly asserted: "STOP DONATING LAITY!"

Rog 'Mahal' Mahony will fight to the last laity donation, or asset! You MUST cut off all funding to take him down, and out, for eternity, if not this life.

It's always been about the money, yours laity, plain & simple.

NO ISAIAH 28:15 Mottoed "La Cosa Nostra" Curia Punishment & Removal? No Problem. No Laity Monies Either! It's THAT Simple!

99% of Christ's Church is comprised of LAITY, paying 100% of the bills.

Less, than 3,500 guilty red hats and miters, and their global drag queen and pedo cult ARE THE PROBLEM!

It's a MORTAL SIN to be giving them any monies!

Fiat Lux & Veritas!
