Archdiocese of Santa Fe to sell properties for settlements

The Archdiocese of Santa Fe is expected to sell off hundreds of properties by this summer in order to fund settlements of sex abuse lawsuits.

Albuquerque Business First reported the archdiocese, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2018, plans to part with more than 700 properties. Nearly 400 claims of abuse have been filed.

Court documents indicate church officials have hired an auctioneer firm out of Florida to oversee the sale of 732 properties by July 21.

A lot of the properties are vacant lots no bigger than a couple of acres.

The archdiocese is accused of hiding properties by transferring ownership to parishes.

Vatican law criminalizes abuse of adults by priests, laity

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has changed Catholic Church law to explicitly criminalize the sexual abuse of adults by priests who abuse their authority and to say that laypeople who hold church office also can be sanctioned for similar sex crimes.

The new provisions, released Tuesday after 14 years of study, were contained in the revised criminal law section of the Vatican’s Code of Canon Law, the in-house legal system that covers the 1.3 billion-member Catholic Church and operates independently from civil laws.

The most significant changes are contained in two articles, 1395 and 1398, which aim to address shortcomings in the church’s handling of sexual abuse. The law recognizes that adults, not only children, can be victimized by priests who abuse their authority. The revisions also say that laypeople holding church positions, such as school principals or parish economists, can be punished for abusing minors as well as adults.

The Vatican also criminalized priests “grooming” minors or vulnerable adults to compel them to engage in pornography. The update represents the first time church law has officially recognized as a criminal act the method used by sexual predators to build relationships with victims they have targeted for sexual exploitation.

The new law, which is set to take effect on Dec. 8, also removes much of the discretion that long allowed bishops and religious superiors to ignore or cover up abuse, making clear those in positions of authority will be held responsible if they fail to properly investigate or sanction predator priests.

A bishop can be removed from office for “culpable negligence” or if he does not report sex crimes to church authorities, although the canon law foresees no punishment for failing to to report suspected crimes to police.

Ever since the 1983 code first was issued, lawyers and bishops have complained it was inadequate for dealing with the sexual abuse of minors since it required time-consuming trials. Victims and their advocates, meanwhile, argued the code left too much discretion in the hands of bishops who had an interest in covering up for their priests.

Pakistani cleric charged with sexual abuse at religious school

https://i.imgur.com/vlUms4C.jpg

LAHORE, Pakistan, June 17 (Reuters) - A Muslim cleric who has led anti-blasphemy rallies in Pakistan has been charged with sexually abusing a student at a religious school, police said on Thursday.

Police said charges were filed against Aziz-ur-Rehman after cellphone videos purporting to show the cleric forcing himself on the student went viral on social media.

The case has caused a stir in Pakistan, a mainly Muslim country, and outrage on social media, with many calling for a strict punishment for the cleric.

Rehman denied the accusation of sexual abuse in a video statement issued on social media, saying that he was drugged before the filming of the alleged abuse. He said this was part of a plot to throw him out of the seminary, the Jamia Manzoor-ul-Islamia.

Rehman, who is in his 60s and is a member of a prominent religious political party, has worked as a custodian of the seminary for several years.

Finance, not kiddies, but here it goes:
Cardinal among 10 indicted by Vatican for financial crimes
  • Pope approved move against cardinal, who says he is innocent
  • Former head of Vatican Financial Intelligence denies charges
  • Becciu most senior Vatican official charged with financial crime
  • Trial to start July 27
VATICAN CITY, July 3 (Reuters) - A prominent Italian cardinal was among 10 people sent to trial in the Vatican on Saturday charged with financial crimes including embezzlement, money laundering, fraud, extortion and abuse of office.

Cardinal Angelo Becciu, formerly a senior official in the Vatican administration, as well as two top officials at the Vatican's Financial Intelligence Unit will go on trial on July 27 over a multi-million euro scandal involving the Vatican's purchase of a building in one of London's smartest districts.

The trial will inevitably bring a swirl of media interest to the tiny city-state surrounded by Rome, and appears to underscore Pope Francis' determination to cure the rot in Vatican finances, even if it involves messy public hearings.

Becciu, 73, whom the pope fired from his senior clerical post last year for alleged nepotism, and who has always maintained his innocence during a two-year investigation, becomes the most senior Vatican official to be charged with financial crimes.

The pope personally gave the required approval last week for Becciu to be indicted, according to a 487-page indictment request seen by Reuters. The Vatican announced the indictments in a two-page statement.

The charges against Becciu include embezzlement and abuse of office. An Italian woman who worked for him was charged with embezzlement and the cardinal's former secretary, Father Mauro Carlino, was accused of extortion.

California church leader held for alleged child sex abuse

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) — The co-founder and “’apostle” of a Southern California church was arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing a child for years, beginning when she was 9 years old, authorities said Friday.

Puredi Hillary, 67, of Rancho Cucamonga, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of continuous sexual abuse of a minor and committing lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department announced.

The department was contacted by a 14-year-old girl in April who alleged that she was sexually abused from the ages of 9 to 12, and an investigation identified Hillary as a suspect, the department said.

Hillary remained jailed on $350,000 bail. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney to speak on his behalf.

Hillary and his wife, Ruth Hillary, founded the Shiloh Tabernacle Church ministry in 2001 and both are certified as apostles by the church, according to its website.

“God has worked miracles through their hands such as raisings from the dead, healings from various diseases such as cancer, aids, diabetes,” according to the website.

The church, which has a mailing address in Rancho Cucamonga east of Los Angeles, is also known as Puredi Hillary Ministries, Inc., according to the website.

I'll put it here:
Millions meant for residential school survivors spent on Catholic Church lawyers, administration: documents

Documents obtained by CBC News detail long list of alleged violations of survivor agreement by church

The Roman Catholic Church spent millions of dollars that were supposed to go to residential school survivors on lawyers, administration, a private fundraising company and unapproved loans, according to documents obtained by CBC News.

The documents include a host of other revelations. They appear to contradict the Catholic Church's public claims about money paid to survivors.

"There are also a large number of serious accounting discrepancies that are alarming to Canada," states one document, a 53-page federal government "factum" summarizing the evidence in a 2015 court matter.

None of the other churches involved in the landmark Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement of 2005 — Anglican, United and Presbyterian — engaged in any of these practices. They all paid the full amounts agreed to years ago without incident.

The Catholic Church never ended up having to legally justify its activity. On the eve of the 2015 hearing on the matter, Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench Justice Neil Gabrielson approved the church's controversial buyout proposal, and the case was closed.

Every fourth pedophilia suspect in Poland is a priest, state commission reveals

Nearly 30% of all sexual offences against minors in Poland are linked to representatives of the clergy, the State Commission on Pedophilia revealed in its first report.

The commission, which was established by the government in 2019, shared the results of its work on Monday in a 250-page paper.

The experts examined 349 pedophilia cases during this period, with priests being suspects in around 100 of them. More than 50 of these cases have been forwarded to the Prosecutor’s Office, the report said.

The commission also criticized the Polish Catholic Church for its unwillingness to cooperate with the government on the controversial issue.

Fort Augustus Abbey school was 'haven for paedophiles'

It was a BBC Scotland documentary in 2013 that first raised the issues of abuse perpetrated by Benedictine monks in Scotland.

The inquiry report said a number of the former pupils who provided evidence spoke positively about their involvement with the "Sins of Our Fathers" documentary by Mark Daly.

In June of this year, one former monk at the school - Fr Denis "Chrysostom" Alexander, who is now 85 - admitted two charges of lewd, indecent and libidinous practices against two boys between 1973 and 1976.
. . . .
After months of evidence, inquiry chairwoman Lady Smith has laid bare the evil carried out by monks who were supposed to be caring for young boys.

What they did behind the ancient stone walls of this monastery is aptly described by Lady Smith as a "desecration of their vows" as holy men.

They beat, bullied, raped and emotionally tortured children as young as five.

When producer Murdoch Rodgers and I started investigating this place in 2012 for our documentary Sins of our Fathers we could hardly believe what we were hearing.

Victims were carefully selected and groomed. The monks would use increasing levels of violence against the boys until they were nearly helpless - then the sexual abuse would start, coming almost as a relief against the constant beatings.
