Montreal’s Catholic Archbishop says a priest who molested a young girl and made inappropriate gestures to another — is not a pedophile.

48-year-old Phillippe de Maupéou pleaded guilty to the charges and served 6 months in the community.

De Maupéou made headlines yesterday, after it was learned the church gave him $60 000 to pay for law school.

Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte says he’s not a pedophile — he just made a mistake.

    Absurdity knows no bounds. It reaches the highest “ranks.”
    SNAP and VOTF are holy hounds. We owe them our thanks!

    How times change! Isn’t it fascinating how a bishop can all of a sudden become a psychiartrist and make pronounciations about another priest’s mental state when just a few years ago they pled ignorance to such things and claimed they took bad advice from psychologists and psychiartrists?

    It use to be just a misunderstanding.

    Clinton also said, “there is not a sexual relationship, an improper sexual relationship or any other kind of improper relationship”[6] which he defended as truthful on 17 August 1998 hearing because of the use of the present tense, famously arguing “it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is”????????????


    sounds familiar, looks familiar, acts familiar then it must be true, ay?

    First we reward all the hierarchy who covered up sexual abuse and put $$$$$ behind their lawyers who were in court to protest that the molesters were innocent. Now we are calling sexual offense a “mistake” and rewarding the molester by paying for law school for him???? Is My Church INSANE????? (This is why, except for my parish, I do not contribute one red cent to the institutional Church.)

  7. John Wirtz Says:

    I don’t understand why J.P. Blair (above) contributes to her own church. It is also a part of the corrupt organization that destroys children and their families – an organization that also continually lies and steals – and is an organization that is filthy rich…..
