lascivious earthlings

I'm beginning to think child sex abuse is so high in numbers that it is a "norm" in terms of statistics. It is normal for there to be predators out there and only way to prevent the crime is to watch your kid twenty four seven, a nasty fact of life among the earthlings.

About Time!

New Bathroom Bill To Ban Catholic Priests From Using Public Bathrooms. Too many chances of Roman Catholic priests molesting innocent children and raping adult women. Plus remember? These are men in dresses and you know what they say about them right?
BURLINGTON, VERMONT - Lawmakers in Vermont are working to pass a bill that would make it illegal for Catholic priests to use public bathrooms. The measure is…

Did Bullock murder Rev. Eric Freed because of pedophile priests?

I know this is all speculation on my part, it will still be weeks before I know for sure, if it turns out to be false, it will make a really good fiction story, hmm. 

UPDATE March 29: Boy was I wrong on this one. Bullock apparently was just a drug crazed guy let free by police on New Year's Eve no connection to pedophile priests in his defense at all. That would have to be fiction and I'm just starting to read fiction these days, never wrote it. . . 

… told him not to come back. Eventually, Bullock's behavior drew the attention of law enforcement. Kenneth Swithenbank, a sergeant with the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, testified that around 1 …
(THIS IS WHAT I WROTE earlier and I actually thought about renting a car, driving to Eureka to cover the trial, to reinvigorate this blog. But there is no connection in Bullock's murder of Fr. Eric Freed to pedo-priests. Bullock was not a long silent suffering victim as I was imagining him. Oh well. At this point, I am not sure what will come of this blog. I keep saying I am going to write short stories but I do not write them. I'm happy to get away from the computer after I get off work to be honest.  So. . . onward. I Am at least reading fiction now, never used to. Become a real Gillian Flynn fan)

It will still be at least a week before Defense gives opening arguments, they are waiting until after the People give their case. I have for two years been thinking Gary Bullock will claim the pedophile priest news or something about the issue was part of his motive for this murder New Years morning 2014. I thought I saw it in his eyes at the time he was arrested. Then I learned Bullock at age 44 had almost no criminal record Except drug use and small time dealing, still he went nuts that holiday night and murdered Rev. Eric Freed in a Most Brutal Way, also trying to blow up the rectory in the Eureka CA Catholic Church. I have been watching this case since then, but Can Not drive to Eureka and attend the trial to blog about it no matter how much I want to, traveling is not on my budget but Lost Coast Outpost has remarkably good coverage. ALSO a journalist who was altar server for Fr Freed, in fact supposed to serve the morning of the murder, started a great blog about crime in Eureka and he is covering the Bullock trial the way I would if I went there and stayed in a hotel and faced antagonism everywhere I went, but Chiv has a much different perspective from mine... Here are those two links, Lost Coast Outpost and John Chiv at Blogspot 

Above is for Lost Coast Outpost a Really Good regional news site, below are links to two John Chiv posts about the trial. 

Happy Sunday Y'all

That would be Way Too Dangerous, a little old lady alone in a hotel in Eureka, doing my transcribing job while also attending the trial. In a city where often news stories past two years have just called Freed "the beloved priest" bk as we all know, priests are all beloved, yada yada. I'd do it with a budget and a bodyguard. I'm trying to turn into a fiction writer now in my elder years anyway, so will be following this trial for the way it sparks my imagination, one way or another.
(NOTE: I do not by any means advocate pedophile priest victims going out and murdering priests, just understand how one could go crazy enough to do so.)

Pope's record on paedophile priests tarnishes. . .

Comment by "Bill" at this story

Johnny's in the rectory, britches to his knees,
Father's fondling Johnny, likes what he sees.
Father's caught again, and sent out of town,
Just another transfer, Father's been around.
Another new parish, where Father's welcomed in,
Another new little Johnny for Father once again.

Story is here: "Pope's record ..."
Many words, little action: three years after Pope Francis's election, victims of priest sex abuse are bitter and disappointed, accusing the Church of having failed to punish guilty clerics and end a culture of complacency on the issue. The recent Australian Royal Commission hearings of Vatican numbe…

Oh man, of course Hollywood would fall for SNAP

SNAP got their name all over Spotlight while the film was in the news, involved no more than a handful of survivors, then followed up with nothing. yet another Golden Opportunity let slide

UPDATE: This is the result. No one shows up (as always as no one is ever notified) for a SNAP organized event, those low numbers are then used against us, here is from March 1 Catholic League post:

Most Americans are truly outraged over the sexual abuse of minors, but there are many who feign anger. Take Mark Ruffalo, star of “Spotlight”: he held a protest outside a Cathedral—almost no one showed up—before the Oscars*

I joked few weeks back and said Blaine et al would show up at Oscars and put SNAP's name all over Spotlight and claim credit for some kind of work that involved the film, showing up in the news about the Academy Awards, like Blaine always shows up, almost alone, when pedophile priests are in the news. Then nothing else happens.  I didn't think it really would happen \as the Oscars but yesterday it did... On the red carpet, Mark Ruffalo said to the mic and the world: "Yeah I was at a protest with the SNAP group in L.A. at the cathedral and they were saying that every day more and more people are coming forward with their stories." Same quote that's come out after every SNAP press event since 1995 and know what? We will never hear who those "new survivors" are or what their story is, they'll disappear into the black hole between St. Louis and Chicago. Guess what Hollywood fell for SNAP, sigh, oh well, There's even Blaine in a photo hugging the movie stars, with her "Killroy was here" smile. It really happened, I was only joking when I said she'd show up at the Oscars almost all alone again claiming to represent survivors and everyone in the news media would believe her.  If she really ran a network for pedopriest victims, then why did only 16 people show up at the protest? Why weren't the rest of survivors in California notified about this pre-Oscar protest weeks in advance so we could get there. I bet word went out around L.A. at the last minute, as always, SNAP keeps turnout low. Making it look like the "survivors network" does something when really it does not. Except keep us from finding each other by hording all the contact information. The quilt in photo below made a statement at demonstrations in 2002, it's still the same quilt... It's astounding that SNAP didn't find a way to use the hundred thousand pedophile priest survivors in the country, or at least the thousand pedophile priest victims who got settlements from the L.A. area in 2007 settlements in a more planned and meaningful way on this special Oscar night, not surprising for those of us who've been part of this for decades though.

Protesters, many of whom identify as victims of abuse by Catholic priests, marched and brandished banners outside the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels Sunday morning.

I joked when I said Blaine et al would show up at Oscars and claim credit for Spotlight. Then
Ruffalo tweeted this flyer from SNAP, my first reaction was, why didn't a protest like this happen in every city. A Snapper then posted the flyer on Facebook saying "This is why we are still in the trenches - protecting kids and exposing the truth!!!" When did we ever go into the trenches? 
Mark Ruffalo
13 hrs
Just got back from a protest with SNAP Priest Sexual Abuse Survivors
Pre Oscar activity today for SNAP and SPOTLIGHT folks (Mark Ruffalo, Tom McCarthy, and Josh Singer).
Barbara Blaine added 3 new photos.
13 hrs
In front of LA Cathedral!

Of course Hollywood believes SNAP is who they say they are,
They both exist in a world created by PR
Blaine really did show up like Killroy with that smile, so then her photo, like one above, ended up in the news with the stars. And not much else. 

Wake me up tell me I'm dreaming

I'm happy for the movie winning best picture but wish more than a handful of survivors would have been able to take part in the experience like why not use all those SNAP branches in cities around the country, to plan events coinciding with the Oscars all over the country but, no, this was it 


Of Course Hollywood would fall for SNAP
even Hollywood Reporter:
Oscars: Mark Ruffalo Joins Sexual Abuse Protest Outside Los Angeles Cathedral
Hollywood Reporter - 17 hours ago They stood with members of SNAP, the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, ...
