Kansas City, Kansas Catholic Diocese Calls Out Priests Amid Ongoing Church Scandal

Even harsh critics of the Church recognize local levels of cooperation with authorities greater than what other parishes are allowing:

"Ultimately, dioceses have set different limits on what to publish. The Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas disclosed the names of priests even in cases in which officials could not substantiate the allegations themselves."

Catholic Leaders Promised Transparency About Child Abuse. They Haven't Delivered. - ProPublica

It took 40 years and three bouts of cancer for Larry Giacalone to report his claim of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a Boston priest named Richard Donahue. Giacalone sued Donahue in 2017, alleging the priest molested him in 1976, when Giacalone was 12 and Donahue was serving at Sacred Heart Parish.

^^Just as the President can't be charged with a crime, this act can't be used against the Trump Administration.

We have to wait until he's removed from office before he can be arrested & charged with tax fraud, insurance fraud, witness tampering, violations of campaign finance laws, etc. etc.

RICO applies to businesses. Churches are tax-exempt, non-profit, non-businesses. However in the catholic church's case, selling indulgences should strip it of its status. Then RICO applies.

The worse part of the Catholic church is that it appears to be the portal to heaven, but its actually a road to hell. Its members turn their back on God and pray to Mary, the Saints, their guardian angels - their substitute for God. And they believe you can work your way to heaven - the devil's plan for actually sending you to hell.
