Pursuit of Bishop Dupre of Massachusetts
Watch for a hearing in Springfield, Mass, the last week of June to unseal the Deposition of Thomas Dupre (pictured right). The Bishop retired and disappeared after The Republican newspaper of Springfield, Mass., confronted him with molestation accusations in 2004. The bishop was indicted on rape charges same year by a Hampden County grand jury, but avoided prosecution because of the statute of limitations.
Dupre fled allegations he abused two young boys when he was a parish priest in Holyoke, Mass., in the 1970s. He has since reached out-of-court settlements with both men. Lawyer John J. Stobierski, who represents the plaintiffs, said Dupre invoked his Fifth Amendment to questions through the deposition.
City of Angels will still get a copy of the deposition transcript when it’s released, to see the questions Bishop Dupre did not want to answer.

Something that showed up in email:
(Names changed to protect the innocent.)
The Catholic Church in BLANK about two hours south of [REDACTED UK city] where we live, was having a night for victims and MM and I decided to go as the night was advertised in the papers and radio.
MM and I walked into a room of about a hundred people. Looking around the room, it seemed to me that there were no victims and only Catholic churchgoers.
MM and I were thrown out because we got up and talked. MM asked if there were any victims in the room and nobody stood up.
I asked if I could go back in but they wouldn't allow us to return. Just bullshitting us yet again.
Alvin Campbell of Springfield, Illinois, in the News Again
This story was in mainstream news
But deserves repeating here from May 30th:
The late Rev. Alvin Campbell of Springfield, Illinois: The future Pope Benedict XVI refused to defrock an American priest who confessed to molesting numerous children and even served prison time for it, simply because the cleric wouldn't agree to the discipline.
The case provides the latest evidence of how changes in church law.

Bringing the Vatican to Justice
By Sam Harris,
on Huffington Post
I confess that, as a critic of religion, I have paid too little attention to the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. Frankly, it always felt unsportsmanlike to shoot so large and languorous a fish in so tiny a barrel. This scandal was one of the most spectacular "own goals" in the history of religion, and there seemed to be no need to deride faith at its most vulnerable and self-abased. Even in retrospect, it is easy to understand the impulse to avert one's eyes: Just imagine a pious mother and father sending their beloved child to the Church of a Thousand Hands for spiritual instruction, only to have him raped and terrified into silence by threats of hell. And then imagine this occurring to tens of thousands of children in our own time -- and to children beyond reckoning for over a thousand years. The spectacle of faith so utterly misplaced, and so fully betrayed, is simply too depressing to think about. But there was always more to this phenomenon that should have (Click here to continue reading)
Letter from Joey Piscitelli,
Read edited parts at bottom;
Hi Kay. I sent this letter to head of the School of Canon Law, and surprisingly, I got no response.
TO: Catholic University of America
School of Canon Law
May 20. 2010
Reverend Robert Kaslyn,
My name is Joey Piscitelli, and I was* violently molested by a deviate sociopathic priest named Fr. Whelan, who worked in San Francisco for Cardinal William Levada. I sued the ** priest in 2003, and won the trial against him a jury verdict of guilty. It was appealed several times, and I won all the appeals.
The other question I have is, why would men who claim to represent God himself, like Ingels and Whelan, be such hypocritical child rapist trash******************************************
Cardinal William Levada, who kept the sexually abusive low life trash in ministry with little children, clear up until the guilty verdict against him, had a canon lawyer named Fr. Gregory Ingels. You may probably know him.
Gregory Ingels was also a filthy serial pedophile rapist, whom Levada chose as his canon lawyer. Levada knew this.
One question I have is why would Levada have such a disgusting sickening rapist as his personal canon lawyer?
The other question I have is, why would men who claim to represent God himself, like Ingels and Whelan, be such hypocritical child rapist trash, and why would the church hierarchy like Levada cover up so may crimes for these despicable sex abusing reprehensible sub-human pigs?
I had to vomit twice as I wrote this. I puked for 5 minutes.
Anyway, It boggles my mind.
* violently sexually molested by a filthy, disgusting, perverted, despicable, deviate, sociopathic low life
** filthy perverted
Bishop Accountability on Gregory Ingels
San Francisco Archdiocese:
Ingels, a widely known church legal scholar and former vicar of priests of SF Archdiocese was accused in 1996 of having oral sex with a 15-year-old boy, Levada allowed Ingels to remain in public ministry and flourish for years as a force in church legal matters. Ingels continued as a church official even after a 2nd charge by woman. Placed on leave in 2002. Criminally charged 5/03 but charges were dropped 7/03 due to U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Included in 6/05 settlement.

From Richard Sipe last month:
New fact sheet released at the website of Richard Sipe dated May 3, 2010:
No one today has to be convinced that sexual abuse of minors is a deadly serious problem. It is a longstanding and widespread crime—it knows no cultural, ethnic, economic or religious boundaries. The Roman Catholic Church has come under a great deal of scrutiny and criticism in the public forum over the last ten years after the publicity given its pattern and practice of hiding abusive clergy and covering up their crimes. Even the Pope is currently embroiled in the crisis. Some considerations follow:
1. Pedophilia is a psychiatric diagnostic term that is limited to sexual preoccupation or involvement with a prepubertal child (usually under 13 years old) by a person five years older than the victim.1 It is often misused in the media.
2. Ephebophilia is a lay-term that describes sexual preoccupation or activity with an adolescent (usually 13 to 17 years old) by a person at least five years older than the victim.
• Sex with a minor can indicate either or both of the above terms. According to church records 71 percent of sexual abuse of minors by clergy in the U.S. occurred or began between 1960 and 1984. (Read more: Click here to read the rest of this research at the Richard Sipe website)
Hundreds of News Stories Result from Work of One Survivor in Eastern Massachusetts:
Bill Nash, shown here in an AP photo April 2010, from previous work regarding the same perpetrator, helped several Associated Press reporters over a month long period and uncovered an American perpetrator with new victims in Africa.
Bill helped several AP reporters “to track down yet more victims from remote villages in Sierra Leone where Mario Pezzotti worked for many years as a missionary priest with the Xaverians,” Nash said recently.
The AP Story circulated nationally and internationally after its release.
“Every time I learn of yet another victim of this priest, I am saddened by the number of lives he destroyed,” writes Bill Nash, who interacted sexually with a different Xaverian James Tully while he was a high school student in seminary. “I’m even more outraged by the complicity of the church who allowed this to go on,” he continues. “If I didn’t contact the Vatican in 2008 about Tully and launch an international media campaign, he would still be hanging out in Italy.”
The month of work Bill Nash put in on perpetrator priest Mario Pezzotti resulted in the May 8, 2010, AP story from Sierra Leone that began: "A rutted red dirt road leads to 'the bar.'"
It can still be read at this link: Fox News
City of Angels wrote about Bill's work last year, when he made a presentation in Italy, in Italian, about James Tully who Nash tracked to an Italian village. Here is our coveraage from January 11, 2009, at City of Angels 5:
Victim tracks down perpetrator, speaks at a conference where ephebophile priest hiding out in Italy, now gets to see him laicized in New Jersey
Six months from the day Bill Nash stood in front of the press in Springfield, Massachusetts and said the priest who sexually assaulted him as a young seminarian should be punished, the Rev. James Tully has petitioned his religious order for laicization. Nash tracked down Tully (pictured above left) to the village of Vicenza, Italy, and became alarmed reading that the ephebophile priest was living unsupervised in a Xaverian Religious Order property. Between June and November, Nash held six press conferences, and handed out... (Click title above to read entire story at City of Angels 5)
