I was age five when the bishop stood over me and said, "Stop babbling about what the priest did to you." Then, forty years later... I started babbling.

PippiLeak: Abq perp Robert John Smith already a known pedophile in 1959 while in seminary

Letter below reveals Church knowledge a priest was a pedophile decades before his damaged victims finally got a form of justice through legal settlements.

Robert John Smith is the perpetrator described in the book "Raped: Memories of a Catholic Altar Boy" which we have written about at CofA Blog here, and here and undoubtedly we will be writing more while we are in New Mexico working on the Murmur She Wrote project, where a little old lady named Kay rides buses and trains around the country uncovering pedophile priest crime coverups in the Catholic Church.

“Msgr. Harrington called at 11:AM on September 11, 1959

“He reported that the police of Springfield informed them of complaints by some parents against ROBERT JOHN SMITH against whom they made charges that he was guilty this summer de re turpi cum infantibus*

[CofA: Per Google Translates from Latin to English: “In base of a thing with their infants.” They already knew Smith was a pedophile in 1959.]

From memo continued:

“He also stated that the charges seemed to be well substantiated, and that Mr. Smith’s Pastor is inclined to believe the charge.”

“Signed Fr. Callistus Smith OFM”

Read the summary of Smith's acts all over New Mexico at BishopAccountability in the database under S.

Per Richard Sipe Code Words to Hide Sex Abuse : "In chancery documents from 1959 I found the phrase De re turpi cum infantibus to describe a priest in trouble. That is a pretty clear admission of the fact of child abuse, of course, meant only for clerical eyes."

[CofA: I posted this letter previously in this post Proof with numerous other Paraclete documents, posted June 16, 2008.]
