OC Catholic Sex-Abuse Survivor to Protest at St. Angela Merici Tomorrow
While nearly all of us try to relax this Memorial Day weekend, Catholic sex-abuse survivors know that pedo-priest protecting never stops. Thus, the indefatigable Joelle Casteix and other survivors will protest tomorrow at 10 a.m. in front of St. Angela Merici in Brea to warn people for the umpteenth time that Diocese of Orange Bishop Tod D. Brown is a pendejo.
Specifically, they are asking OC's other pedo-protecting bishop,Cirilo Flores
, who resides at St. Angela Merici, to pressure Brownie into coming cleanabout His Excellency's pedophilia cover-ups while serving in the Diocese of Boise
during the late 1980s and early 1990s. "If there are men out there who are a significant risk to kids," said Casteix in a press release, "then Flores has an obligation as an attorney, a bishop and a man of faith to make sure that all people who have been credibly accused of abuse anywhere Brown has worked are exposed, people are warned and kids are safe."
Wouldn't that be nice if Flores did? Wouldn't it be nice if Flores even acknowledged the survivors mañana? Both points ain't gonna happen--heckuva job, Brownie!
