The global Catholic priest sex abuse scandal has appeared in Brazil. Authorities are investigating three pervert priests accused of sexually abusing altar boys after a video allegedly showing one case of abuse was broadcast on television, police and church officials said Tuesday.
The case came to light after the SBT network aired a video purportedly showing an 82-year-old priest having sex with a 19-year-old altar boy who worked for him for four years. Other young men appeared on the report saying that they, too, had been abused by Monsignor Luiz Marques Barbosa.
Also under investigation are Monsignor Raimundo Gomes, 52, and Father Edilson Duarte, 43, for allegedly having sexual relations with boys and young men.
According to a statement from the church, the three priests are “supposedly involved in acts (yet to be proven) of sexual abuse.” The statement did not say whether the men admit or deny guilt. None of the priests could be located to ask about the case, and the church would not provide contact details for them.
The Catholic church was in the news again recently when it was disclosed that a choir member at the Vatican was operating a male prostitution ring out of the Vatican under Pope RatNAZI’s nose. A cautionary note to my readers. If you have young children, especially young boys and teenage boys, do not under any circumstances let them alone with a priest. The culture of Catholicism is dangerous and perverted.
