Grand Jury Finds Police Were Complicit in Covering Up Massive Child Sex Ring in Catholic Church

By Matt Agorist

Philadelphia, PA — For those who have been keeping up with the child sex abuse scandal in the Catholic church that erupted late last month in Pennsylvania, many have been wondering how it was allowed to go on for so long without anyone getting charged or arrested. Now, we may have the answer—the police were complicit.

During a grand jury report into the child sex abuse by priests in Pennsylvania, the state Attorney General, Josh Shapiro provided insight into how priests were allowed to go on for decades preying on children. He singled out the two groups responsible for covering up the crimes of the church.

One of the groups named by the AG was the Catholic Church hierarchy like the archbishops and cardinals who reacted to allegations of child rape by simply transferring the priest to a new church or failing to act at all. The other group Shapiro named was law enforcement, who he says acted in tandem with the abusive priests to keep their horrific habits from ever reaching the public eye.

“The abuse scarred every diocese,” he said. “The cover-up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”

Not only did the church protect pedophile priests, but the investigation revealed a “failure of law enforcement,” according to Shapiro.

According to the investigation, at the same time the church was covering up the abuse by protecting the pedophiles, it also had assistance from police or district attorneys who aided in covering it up as well. Sometimes this aid was in the form of looking the other way, while other times, it involved actively thwarting investigations.

As the Morning Call reports:

The documented cases of lax enforcement occurred decades ago. But by allowing offending priests to walk freely, law enforcement cleared a path for more abuse to occur and left victims without justice. It’s impossible to say how many children were molested by priests who avoided charges, but the grand jury report found that some accused priests aided by see-no-evil law enforcement were able to live freely for decades, and that the 1,000 victims the grand jury counted likely were the tip of the iceberg.

For former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham, the problem often started at police departments, which were stocked with Catholic police officers. They knew the priests, but more importantly, she said, the priests knew them.

“It was a different time,” she said. “You didn’t remonstrate with the guy who’s giving you absolution.”

Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli told the Morning Call that he experienced this shunning by law enforcement and the church first hand when he prosecuted Monsignor Stephen T. Forish for allegedly soliciting sex from a man early one morning in 1996.

“I was criticized big-time for bringing that case,” he said.

Forish would later be acquitted only to be charged again for a similar crime years later. He would die awaiting the trial in that case.

According to the Morning Call, Shapiro, through a spokesperson, refused to go into detail on how, exactly, law enforcement helped to cover up the abuse. However, they pointed out one glaring public example.

One of the most egregious missed opportunities by law enforcement involved the Rev. Thomas Bender, who was serving at St. Francis Orphanage in Orwigsburg in 1972. That year, the grand jury report said, a state trooper found Bender with a high school-age boy, both with no pants on, in a car. The case was reported by another trooper, who also was a deacon in the church, the grand jury report said.

A report by Monsignor Anthony Muntone to Bishop Thomas J. Welsh, then head of the Allentown Diocese, stated that the first trooper “gave Bender ‘a lecture and sent him on his way.’ ”

One District Attorney was even caught on record deliberately blocking investigations into the rape of young boys by priests. In 1964, Beaver County district attorney Robert Masters was presented with evidence that a Catholic priest was raping several young boys. However, he blocked the investigation to prevent “unfavorable publicity.”

“I have, in order to prevent unfavorable publicity, halted all investigations into similar incidents with other young boys,” Masters wrote in an Aug. 4, 1964, letter to Pittsburgh Diocese Bishop Vincent Leonard.

As the Free Thought Project has previously pointed out, pedophilia among the elite is rampant. In instance after horrifying instance, the Free Thought Project continues to push these issues to the forefront — in spite of mainstream media claiming that talk of elite pedophilia is akin to tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theory.

The good news is that this paradigm seems to be shifting. As the scandal in Pennsylvania illustrates, even some folks within the mainstream media have begun to report on this nightmarish reality.

  1. Since the days of the Knights Templar, their descendents in Satanic ZioNAZI-controlled Freemason/Illuminati movements have tried to destroy the Catholic Church – including by recruiting Pedophiles to invade the Church!

  2. Sadly this is the tip of the pedophile rings.
    The kids are used in horrible satanic rituals of the ‘Deep State’.

  3. There’s pedos at all levels of government, law enforcement, etc. Of course they will cover for their own.. They need to go down,….

  4. this is more than kids and sex which is sick in and of it self but i was hit and run as a pedestrian in 96 by a 74 year old nun it destroyed my right leg and my ability to work and the churchs official position was never a dime the old girl that ran me down in the street made no attempt to stop or slow down she was gonna go home say 10 hail marys and all was well with the world untill the biker caught up with her she even admitted in court that she knew she hit me and just kept driveing even then no tickets no charges she had mackeral degeneration in one eye and a catarack on the other and was driveing at 936 pm when she did her little hit and run gig she never was charged with any thing no loss of her drivers license nothing at all…..she destroyed my life at 36 years old and got away with it scott free and the court system in phoenix az made all this happen between jan 9 1996 and about 1998-99……i got dropped into a meat grinder and she and her church walked away all most scot free…….so this was way more than just pedos rapeing kids its as if the church was rapeing every one they came in contact with and they just knew they were gonna get away with it…………………………….

  5. the police officers weren’t resisting the arresting of priests just cuz “they give them absolution” (from their own sins), but rather, they are part of the huge network that keeps pedophilia as well as satanic ritual abuse, flourishing among those doing it. You can read about it in daniel ryder’s book “breaking the circle of satanic ritual abuse”, wherein he exposes, through his investigation of it, the “ring” of law enforcement, judges, etc that all collude to protect themselves and their crimes

  6. I saw Philadelphia bitch Lynn Abraham on television with Sally Jesse Raphael practicing terror against an eight year old child. They terrorized the child with threats of imprisonment and used prison guards to physically threaten the child. Lynn Abraham is A PUBLIC CHILD ABUSER AND TERRORIST THAT SOLD HER CHILD ABUSE AND CHILD TERRORISM AS ENTERTAINMENT ON TELEVISION. Lynn Abraham is a violent killer and traitor the poisons and murders our children with heroin. Her rapist pig mafia is in our public schools RIGHT NOW telling children that heroin is the same thing as pot. Her rapist pig mafia is in Afghanistan RIGHT NOW
    growing opium and manufacturing heroin TO POISON AND MURDER OUR CHILDREN.

  7. Lynn Abrams and her rapist pig mafia have abolished civilian government in Pennsylvania.
    WE DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE. WE DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE A CRIMINAL COMPLAINT IN HER RAPIST PIG FAKE COURTS. HER RAPIST PIG LAWYER MAFIA DOES NOT ACCEPT CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS FROM CIVILIANS. WE DON’T HAVE A CIVILIAN JUDICIARY IN PENNSYLVANIA. KIDNAPPING, TORTURE AND MURDERING OUR CHILDREN WITH HEROIN ARE WHAT LYNN ABRAMS CALLS PUBLIC SERVICE.
