TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SHAMEFUL KANSAS CITY CATHOLIC SEX ABUSE SCANDAL CONTINUES!!!
Like it or not, Kansas City's struggle to forget sex abuse charges and convictions against local Catholic priests has proven futile as the controversy continues.
To wit . . .
KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS TELL US OF MORE KANSAS CITY CATHOLIC SEX SCANDAL ON THE HORIZON!!!
"Word is that on 9/12, Fr. Shawn Ratigan will be sentenced for more child sex crimes."
While the Church does move slowly, even the most devout Catholic apologists might find it strange that the priest has yet to be excommunicated given the circumstances and the fact that his misdeeds led to the first conviction of a Catholic Bishop in U.S. History on the misdemeanor charge of failing to report suspected child abuse.
Meanwhile, a ANOTHER KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER puts the ONGOING controversy in perspective for us . . .
"In St. Louis, a young priest, Fr. William Vatterott (age 37), pled guilty to charges of possessing child porn between 2010 and 2011. Ironically, that was about the same time that Fr. Shawn Ratigan was involved in child porn in Kansas City.
In June of 2011, Vatterot was suspended.
The month before, in May of 2011, Ratigan was arrested.
Vatterott was ordained in 2003. Ratigan was ordained in 2004.
Yet for more than 20 years, Catholic bishops have been assuring the flock that they are better at screening prospective priests to “weed out” those with sexual problems.
So how do you explain these younger clerics and their crimes?
Sadly, there is no explanation of this CONTINUED KANSAS CITY CATHOLIC SEX SCANDAL CONTROVERSY, only ardent denials as the Church hierarchy seem to be employing a strategy that relies more on legal maneuvering and political ploys rather than offering any contrition.
