Chilean priest probed after ‘stolen babies’ scandal

A judge in Chile has barred a Catholic priest from leaving the country over claims he had pressured single women to give up their babies for adoption.

The ruling blocks a church recommendation that Father Gerardo Joannon, 77, go on retreat abroad.

He allegedly belonged to a network of clerics and doctors who gave the babies to married couples under the rule of Augusto Pinochet in the 1970s and ’80s.

This was done to avoid the social stigma of unmarried motherhood.

If the women resisted, they were told that their children had died during birth.

‘Fake funerals’

Father Joannon is a senior cleric at the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary in the Chilean capital, Santiago.

Following the allegations, his archdiocese suspended him and launched its own internal investigation.

This week, it concluded that he was involved in two “irregular adoptions”.

In both cases, the mothers were anaesthetised during labour and later told their babies had died.

In actual fact, the children had been given to other families, according to the investigation.

The church said Father Joannon knew they were alive but nevertheless conducted funeral masses for the children.

The church recommended he apologise to his victims and go to Madrid, Spain, “to initiate a process of psychological and spiritual accompaniment”.

The case is being investigated by Chilean Judge Mario Carroza who ordered the cleric to stay in Chile for at least two months while a police investigation continues.

    One Sunday morning, before mass, he went to feed the birds and discovered that the cock was missing.

    He knew about cock fights in the village, so he questioned his parishioners in church.

    During mass, he asked the congregation, “Has anybody got a cock?” All the men stood up.

    “No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock?” All the women stood up.

    “No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen my cock?”
    Sixteen altar boys, two priests and a goat stood up.

  4. The Catholic church has never given a hoot about the sexual orientation of their priests or their shenanigans, despite the false outrage of Pope Benedict. As Joseph Ratzinger, he was fully in on the racket of transferring paedophile priests to other parishes.

    Money laundering, paedophile and gay priests engaging in group sex, ongoing discrimination against women, secrecy and unaccountability to civil law – no, of course you mustn’t judge the Catholic church.

    South America is the only continent left where this scum can carry on with their dirty work. There’s a fortune of Colombian drug money in the Vatican Bank, and a lot more to be made.

    On Gay Priests, Pope Francis Asks, ‘Who Am I to Judge?’

    ROME — For generations, homosexuality has largely been a taboo topic for the Vatican, ignored altogether or treated as “an intrinsic moral evil,” in the words of the previous pope.

    In that context, brief remarks by Pope Francis suggesting that he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation, made aboard the papal airplane on the way back from his first foreign trip, to Brazil, resonated through the church. Never veering from church doctrine opposing homosexuality, Francis did strike a more compassionate tone than that of his predecessors, some of whom had largely avoided even saying the more colloquial “gay.”

    “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis told reporters, speaking in Italian but using the English word “gay.”

    Francis’s words could not have been more different from those of Benedict XVI, who in 2005 wrote that homosexuality was “a strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil,” and an “objective disorder.” The church document said men with “deep-seated homosexual tendencies” should not become priests.

    Vatican experts were quick to point out that Francis was not suggesting that the priests or anyone else should act on their homosexual tendencies, which the church considers a sin. But the fact that he made such comments — and used the word “gay” — was nevertheless revolutionary, and likely to generate significant discussion in local dioceses, where bishops are divided over whether to accept priests who are gay but celibate.

    Francis also told reporters that while Pope John Paul II had definitively closed the door to female priests, he sought a “theology of women” and a greater role for them in Catholic life, news reports said.

    Francis did not dodge a single question, even thanking the person who prompted his comments on homosexuality, asking about Italian news reports of a “gay lobby” inside the Vatican, with clerics blackmailing one another with information about sexual missteps.

    “So much is written about the gay lobby. I have yet to find on a Vatican identity card the word ‘gay,’ ” Francis said, chuckling. “They say there are some gay people here. I think that when we encounter a gay person, we must make the distinction between the fact of a person being gay and the fact of a lobby, because lobbies are not good.”

    An article in the Italian weekly L’Espresso this month alleged that one of the advisers that Francis had appointed to look into the Vatican Bank, Msgr. Battista Ricca, had been accused of having gay trysts when he was a Vatican diplomat in Uruguay. The pope told reporters that nothing in the documentation he had seen substantiated the reports.

    He added that such a lobby would be an issue, but that he did not have anything against gay people and that their sins should be forgiven like those of all Catholics. Francis said that homosexuals should be treated with dignity, and that no one should be subjected to blackmail or pressure because of sexual orientation.

    “The problem isn’t having this orientation. The problem is making a lobby,” he said.

    In recent years, both Benedict and Francis have tried to make changes at the Vatican Bank so that it meets international anti-money-laundering norms that are a condition for using the euro.

    Asked about the bank, Francis said, “Some say that it’s better to have a bank, others that it would be better to have a fund, still others say to close it.”

  5. But let’s not leave the Hindus out of it. Have you ever noticed how Hindus are extremely jealous of what others have? How Hindu women become “Christian” and marry white men so they can fleece them, showing everyone photos of their shopping trips in Paris and Dubai and the latest Merc on Facebook? But secretly worry because their finances are in a mess. And then the husband refuses to take out a bundle of life assurance in her favour. I have had Indian women trying to sneak behind their husband’s back to take out life assurance without the husband’s knowledge – which is not possible, and then they pull out their hair leaving bald patches all over their head.

    My husband had an Indian inspector working for him. When he was invited over to our house he wanted to rent it for himself, furniture included. He was dead serious about it.

    From one of those Topix Q and A’s:

    Q Why are Indian people very competitive and get jealous easily?

    A This is very common. In fact, this is why Indian households smell so strongly of curry. Over many generations, Indians have been trying to outdo one another by cooking a spicier, richer curry than their neighbors. So now its 2014 and curry flavoring has spiraled completely out of control. Its a badge of honor though–Indians will lose their dinner guests’ respect if the curry smells weak.

    • Holyshmoly some people will regard you as a racist. Politics and religion are the reasons that we are not moving forward. Being politically correct or religiously correct is much more in favour than being scientifically correct. Look at affirmative action it is purely based on politics. They are trying to “fix” the ” wrongs ” of the past by making the same mistakes the people made they hate so much. That is not being logic. That is being emmosional and then calling it politically correct. Look at what happened in South – Africa because of that way of thinking. Obviously it is completely absurd to argue that you are going to punish a racial groups individuals because of something that certain individuals in their race did years ago. That is purely racist driven thinking. Get back at the white man! Science has no place for being emotional.

  6. ‘n Mooi stukkie uit Steve Jones (genetikus) se nuwe boek, “The Serpent’s Promise. The Bible retold as science,”

    “In biblical times people asked sensible questions about life, or geology, or the sky at night, and came up what seemed sensible answers. Almost all were wrong, but their philosophy meant that there was no reason to revise them. Piety is – with its promise with life eternal – for optimism, while science is the home of pessimists, who search for ugly facts to destroy their (or at least their rivals’) beautiful theories. They have brought doubt to the world and the world has gained as a result.”

    Sukkel om eenvoudige wetenskaplike natuurverskynsels te begryp, nè Johannie. Gravitasie is nie aan ‘n formule gekoppel nie – ‘n hele reeks formules beskryf hierdie krag en dit is geensins onder verdenking nie. Spring van ‘n krans af en sien wat gebeur met jou. En hierdie krag is sterker as jou gotte se krag – jy sal nie gered word nie, al sê jou boek van fabels jy sal jou voet nie teen enige klip stamp nie.

Ek kan darem die effek van gravitasie waarneem, al kan ek dit nie sien of hoor of ruik of met my sintuie waarneem nie en die saaintis kan dit meet of die sterkte daarvan meet met hul instrumente. Wow!

      As jy die “geloof sprong” doen sal jy ander kragte waarneem wat op groter “realiteit” gebaseer is en selfs die natuurkragte kan buig, soos die stories wat jy al gehoor het. Maar nou gaan julle fundamentalistiese atijoote en verkondig dat daar nie ‘n geestes “wêreld” bestaan nie en jy net ‘n biologiese masjien is wat tot ‘n begin en einde kom, dat daar geen natuur verskynsel is soos die menslike WIL, emosies, of psige is nie, al daai woorde wat opgemaak is om die mens as ‘n verskynsel te beskryf is sommer net in ons “koppe” en bestaan nie omdat die saaintis dit nie kan meet nie. . . .?

      Nou wonder ek of die saaintis nou al “bewys” het of die menselike “ego” bestaan, is die ego werklik of net in ons koppe. . .? En al is dit net in ons “koppe” hoekom kan sekere mense soos Adriaan en Molly dit nie uitken nie? Of moet ek dit eerder ander stel: Adriaan en Molly kan nie bewus word van die ego in hul koppe nie, want “bewusyn” is nog nie bewys nie?

              En om rasioneel te dink klink so koeël, so asof jy beter as ander skepsels is en ek veronderstel dat een van jou rasionele gedagtes/idee’s wat jy “worship”, is soiets soos “ek sal net iets “glo” as dit bewys word vir my “. (glo bo rede)

              Rasioneel dink vereis ook dat mens nie emosioneel en bevooroordeeld is nie, waaraan jy skuldig is – aan albei. Hoe kan jy weet wat gaan gebeur voor jy die “geloofsprong” neem? As jy dink aan vroeër toe jy ‘n gesnede beeld of ‘n gelykenis van God probeer “worship” het, onthou net dat dit vals was en nog is en dis nie waarheen jy moet terugkeer nie. (As ek nou aan Mallies dink wat skaamteloos verkondig dat die konsep van God wat hy probeer “worship” het was toe altyd deel van die vroulike voortplantings anatomie, ek sou eerder stil gebly het as om ander te “wys” hoe stjoepit ek is).

              Ek probeer vir jou “wys”, maar jy wil nie kyk nie en die rede, wat jy seker probeer glo, is dat jy nou nie tyd het om te mors op iets wat nie bestaan nie, wat bevooroordeling is en nie rasioneel denke nie.

I saw again on facebook that one should not give technology to a group of illiterate Afrikaners. The far right wings are a bunch of barbaric uncivilised idiots. They are nothing better than left wing blacks. They are trying to fix a mistake with a mistake. Politics sucks! Religion also. Richard Dawkins also said that the world can do nothing with religion. Afrikaners can be a bunch of assholes. I fantasize about starting my own political party. One that has basically the same outlook as Richard Dawkins society for rational thinking. A political party who puts common sense first not emontional thinking. A party that can fix the social problems by working in a logical way. Create a South Africa where people have water ( Like they use to have all these years), have electricity ( Like they use to all these years), where there are jobs for people who work hard and have the will to empower themselves. Where houses are build, crime is handled the right way, where schoolkids are educated in the best way possible and they learn to think morally and logic and fair. All those can only be achieved through logical thinking not emotional thinking. I leave it up to your imagination to think why all this is not possible in South Africa.
