Tod Brown's Perpetual Pedo-Priest Parade!

Documents released by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles shows again how the Orange diocese is still not telling the full story of its sex-abuse scandal

In Ramos' LA file is a 2004 memorandum from the Diocese of San Bernardino that details a meeting church leaders had with a man who claimed Ramos had molested him at a cabin in Crestline. The victim (whose name is redacted in the document) said he first encountered Ramos at Divina Providencia Parish and Our Lady of Loreto chapel in Tijuana, where Ramos headed—I kid you not—a children's ministry. Starting in 1985 and continuing until the boy's family moved to San Bernardino, Ramos molested the child repeatedly—at Crestline, at hotels near Disneyland, in Los Angeles and in Tijuana itself. In 2003, when stories about Ramos' depravity first hit Southern California newspapers, the victim's family asked him if Ramos—who was a "good family friend"—had ever molested him; the victim denied it. The victim didn't want to tell his family because he was, according to the notes of the meeting, "fearful of his mother's reaction to his abuse since he recalls that his mother would frequently encourage her son to take private overnight trips with Father Ramos [e.g., the Crestline, Disneyland and Universal Studios trips]."

San Bernardino diocese officials promised the victim they'd report his abuse at the hands of Ramos to the police, but no record exists of this. And there has definitely never been any effort by the Orange diocese to alert parishioners in Orange County, let alone Divina Providencia and Our Lady of Loreto, about Ramos' past, or that they dumped Ramos there because he was a kiddie diddler. Chillingly, Ramos' Tijuana victim asked San Bernardino officials a simple question neither they nor Orange officials ever answered: "Was Father Ramos transferred to Tijuana because of his past abusive history in the [Orange diocese]?"

Bishop Kevin Vann wants us to believe that the problem is "over." But as long as there is cover-up, victims suffer. As long as there is cover-up, there is tremendous risk. As long as there is cover-up, we must demand accountability.

This is nothing new.  Our parish of St.Maria Goretti in Scottsdale Az.( for over 15 yrs). had 6 pedophile priests there, (not all at the same time) but we never knew until  it all came out in the Az. Republic .  We couldn't believe it,  but when we saw  it in black and white, from our "hit and run killer"bishop O'Brien , then we did , as our relatives who had been in religious orders, had told us of these things going on in the church and we wouldn't believe them  We left the RCC in 2001.  I have been blogging online ever since .

The  KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN US.

@MattCarrigan St. Justin Martyr? Where Siegfried Widera was? The mind shudders at what those two demons might've done...

@GustavoArellano @MattCarrigan  Yeap St. Justin Martyr. He and widera were drinking buddies. Ramos used to hang around the yearly carnival and say mass once in a while. They had quite the network....

@GustavoArellano @MattCarrigan  It was around 82- 84.  They used to sit with my friends grandparents that ran the sausage booth and get drunk. (not kidding) Even after widera "was removed" from st justin , he still was there for special events and shit just to rape kids after school. No one stopped widera from abusing.
