The Cult of Pedophilia, AKA, the Roman Catholic Church, is on trial in Philadelphia for the rape of three boys.
According to the Associated Press:
Jurors in a landmark priest-child rape trial on Monday heard the nauseating details of a priest-turned-camp prowler and another who allegedly bragged about having sex with three boys in one week.
Monsignor William Lynn, 61, is on trial for child endangerment and conspiracy. Lynn is the first Catholic church official in the U.S. charged over his negligent handling of priest-abuse complaints. Prosecutors charge he helped the church bury them in secret files, far from the prying eyes of investigators, civil attorneys and concerned Catholics.
In the day’s most startling testimony, a detective read internal church memos about a priest who allegedly “joked about how hard it was to have sex with three boys in one week.” His accuser also stated that the priest had a “rotation process” of boys spending time sleeping with him.
Defense lawyers argue that Lynn tried to address the problem as secretary for clergy from 1992 to 2004, but was blocked by the late Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua and others in the Philadelphia archdiocese.
The testimony Monday also included a 1992 complaint about a different priest who allegedly molested boys at a church-owned camp three decades earlier.
Several junior counselors complained in the early 1960s that the priest was on the prowl at night, molesting them in their tents. They said it was a well-known secret among teen counselors for several years.
