Deacon “George”

At my Kingsbridge-Bronx RC church I recently discovered that our soon to be Deacon “George” has a very checkered past. He was arrested years ago for having oral s** with another man right next to the children’s playground at Van Cortlandt Park when a mother saw him and called the police. The playground was directly across the street from our old church. He has been cruising the neighborhood parks for over 30 years. Ok it’s his own personal business. Then I find out he had an affair with a now defrocked priest “Ralph”. OK still his own business. Then I find out that he had been disowned by some of his family for inappropriate behavior with his niece and nephews. This is where it becomes problematic. “George” trains the young alter servers and runs the youth group at the church. He also has a very close relationship with the pastor who is also strange. They spend an awful lot of time alone together. “George’s” much older wife seems oblivious to all of this.
My dilemma is that I know I should report this to the NY Archdiocese and St Joseph’s Seminary but fear that it will all be swept under the rug, and I will he berated for doing the right thing. I know that if I do nothing this will become a bigger problem and as a Deacon he will only become more daring in his exploits. So upset over all of this!

  • Update! The accused was dismissed from all his duties and is currently in hiding.

  • Well, believe with what you see... if it is a rumor that would be bearing false witness of your neighbor. Here in America a person need PROOF and not just suspicion. I’m sure it’s the imagination. However, if it is true obviously run.

  • I am a Judge and I would make sure I have all the proof and evidence. Get private investigators and all good professionals , to look into the matter thoroughly and scrupulously. Once I have all the evidence, I will have all those involved marred and pay the price! Enough nonsense on this website!

  • Here is the DUMBEST part of all of this BullSheiz! The Catholic Church is, without doubt, the wealthiest organization on Earth! The have assets in HUNDREDS of Billions (possibly Trillions). Do you think that there is ANY rumor YOU have heard about, which if true, they haven’t already checked out? Do you think that your silly church-lady rumor-mill is ANY match for the investigative power of the Catholic Church? Plus, with all the scandals they have been through in the past twenty years, do you think that they would even RISK having someone with an easily verifiable criminal past, be in a position of authority in the church at all (let alone in authority of children?) Grow-up! LEAVE THIS ALONE! DO NOTHING! At best, you are poking your nose where it does not belong, and at worst you could destroy an innocent person’s life! The Bible says that rumors are like a bag of feathers emptied during a wind-storm in the desert... once they are out, as much as to try, as hard as you look, you will NEVER be able to retrieve all the feathers! Likewise once you have released a rumor, it will spread so far, so quickly, that no matter how hard you try, you could NEVER make it right!

  • Yes, lies and rumours do damage peoples lives. The way you wrongly damage an innocent persons reputation, karma will come back to you, hundredfold. As the saying goes: Even if you have the proof and evidence, these powerful organizations will do everything in their Power to ruin you. If they are guilty as charged, get a good police officer who will do their good work, behind the scenes. Start your way from the TOP and work your way down to the bottom because corruption has to be stamped out from where it starts. “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don't let the bastards grind you down.” Get all the proof and evidence (video footage) and then let the good people do their work. Crimes should never go unpunished!

  • Report it copy furnished the CBCP and Vatican. Supported by affidavits and police records.

  • These BUSTARDS always get away with murder. No matter how much reporting you do, it always goes under the radar because the LAW IS AN ASS. The LAW protects all the evil doers. It's not what you know ~ It's who you know! There is no such thing as Human Rights Lawyers. It's all about money. If your are too honest you get punished beyond belief.

  • I so love a good story.
    Very entertaining (not).

  • I get it that you wanted to read something different here. I dont think case this was meant for entertainment. The post addresses a real issue that many face today.
