      Catholic child abuse: 187 allegations against 98 priests have led to zero
      convictions 4/24/13
      “I am one of the fortunate survivors to have succeeded in securing a
      criminal conviction against one of two Spiritan priests who sexually abused me,”
      writes campaigner Mark Vincent Healy.

      THE DIOCESES OF Clogher, Elphin, Killala and Waterford join the infamous
      group of seven Catholic Church authorities, including Derry, Dramore and
      Limerick, where not one priest has been convicted for having committed an
      offence or offences against a child or young person despite numerous allegations
      since 1 January 1975. From the 16 dioceses reviewed to date by the
      National Board for Safeguarding Children, there have been 187 allegations made in
      relation to 98 priests where there have been no convictions. This
      represents a third of the church authorities examined where not one priest was held
      to account....

      To date there have been four reviews of missionary orders where a total of
      113 priests have had 287 allegations raised against them but only seven
      priests have ever been convicted. The sad reality is that only 6.2 per cent
      of accused Irish missionaries are ever convicted. I am one of the fortunate
      survivors to have succeeded in securing a criminal conviction against one
      of two Spiritan priests who sexually abused me from the ages of nine to 12
      and then tried to cover it all up. Forty-seven Spiritans had 142 allegations
      made against them in the second tranche of audits, and only three were
      convicted....

      Fr Andrew Greely, a professor of Sociology at the University of Chicago
      believes there could be up to 50 victims per priest. Meanwhile, Richard Sipe
      a psychotherapist in Maryland, has said 250 victims may suffer over the
      lifetime of a paedophile. Shockingly, the 106 priests accused in the third
      tranche could possibly have abused between 5,300 to 26,500 potential victims.
      Just 271 came forward....

      Abuse survivor demands state inquiry Sarah Stack and David Young – 24
      April 2013

      AN abuse survivor who alleges an uncle of the former Bishop of Clogher was
      one of his attackers has demanded a state inquiry into clerical sex crimes
      in Northern Ireland. The Stormont Executive has established a statutory
      probe into abuse committed in state and church-run institutions, but its
      remit does not cover criminal acts committed by priests outside of children's
      residential facilities.

      Michael Connolly claims he was victimised for five years of his childhood
      in Donagh, Co Fermanagh, by parish priest Peter Duffy, who was later
      promoted to canon. The deceased cleric was the uncle of the former Bishop of
      Clogher, Joseph Duffy, who was today heavily criticised for unsatisfactory
      responses to child abuse allegations and risky behaviour of priests in the
      diocese....

      Restitution Returns to the United States Supreme Court (again)
      By James R. Marsh on April 24, 2013

      Today, James R. Marsh of the Marsh Law Firm and Paul G. Cassell of the
      University of Utah College of Law Appellate Legal Clinic, filed a brief in the
      United States Supreme Court in their latest effort to convince the Court
      to consider the critical issue of criminal restitution for victims of child
      pornography.

      The case, Doyle Randall Paroline v. Amy Unknown, arises out of a
      long-fought extensively litigated restitution action which started almost four years
      ago before Judge Leonard Davis in the Eastern District of Texas Tyler
      Division. In January, the defendant filed a Petition for a Writ of Certiorari
      in the Supreme Court seeking review of last year's landmark Fifth Circuit en
      banc decision which significantly expanded the rights of child pornography
      victims to receive criminal restitution.

      Court hears details of satanic ritual
      April 24 2013 By Sandy Moeketsi

      Johannesburg - Phrases were chanted before Kirsty Theologo and her friend
      were set alight, the High Court sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's
      Court heard on Wednesday. Her alleged murderers stood at the points of a
      satanic star, where candles burnt. In the middle of the star was a burning Bible,
      where blood would be shed, Lester Moody told the court. Moody was
      testifying against four people accused of setting Theologo and her friend alight in
      an apparent satanic ritual on October 21, 2011....

      Girl’s satanic horror April 24 2013 By SUSAN DU

      Johannesburg - Kirsty Theologo thought that she was going to a party with
      friends she trusted on the night of October 21, 2011.

      She brought another girl along.
      She had a drink.
      She trusted her friends when they told her they needed to stop by a petrol
      station to get sweets, then again when they said there had been a change
      of plans and that they would be going into the “mountains of Linmeyer”
      instead.

      The “party” turned out to be a satanic ritual in which Kirsty was
      drugged, bound, drenched in petrol and burnt so severely that she died later in
      hospital. Her friend, now 16, survived. She can’t be named due to her age....

      Kirsty and her friend - the only two people not dressed entirely in black
      - lost consciousness due to the brake fluid that had been secretly added to
      their drinks. The two victims were then bound and left to one side while
      the accused created a “satanic star” in the ground and lit candles at each
      of its five points, Moody testified....
