Msgr. Lynn Under House Arrest

By Ralph Cipriano
for Bigtrial.net

It was a dog and pony show that was over in a few minutes.

A noticeably slimmer Msgr. William J. Lynn made a totally unnecessary appearance this afternoon in the courtroom of Judge M. Teresa Sarmina to review conditions of his bail.

Lynn, who lost 80 pounds in jail, was released Friday after his conviction on one count of child endangerment was reversed by the state Superior Court.

The judge told Lynn his appearance was required to "personally have addressed you to make sure you understand what the conditions of your release are."

"Yes, Your Honor," Lynn replied.

The conditions basically amount to house arrest. Lynn has to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet on his ankle at all times. He will be restricted to staying on two floors of the rectory at St. William's parish at 6200 Rising Sun Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. He will have to check in with his parole officer every week. He will need his parole officer's permission whenever he wants to leave the rectory to visit, say his doctor or his lawyer.

Sarmina asked Lynn if he was aware that if he violated any of the judge's conditions, that his bail would immediately be revoked and he would "return to prison."

"I am," he replied.

Sarmina asked Lynn if he was aware that she had already signed an arrest warrant that would be issued if the monsignor violated any provision of his electronic monitoring.

"I am," the monsignor said.

With that it was over. If Lynn behaves, it should be his last appearance in Judge Sarmina's courtroom.

Sarmina presided over the monsignor's show trial in 2012. It was her application of the law in that case that was described by the Superior Court as "fundamentally flawed."

Sarmina was true to form today in requiring the monsignor to return to her courtroom to tell him something he already knew, her conditions for bail that Lynn's lawyers had already agreed to.

If Judge Sarmina had told Lynn to stand on his head, he would have done so.

But the judge got last burst of headlines out of the case, and the news media got a chance to get some fresh pictures of a slimmer monsignor.

So presumably everyone went home happy.

Outside the courtroom, Msgr. Lynn declined to speak to the media. He answered only one question, how he lost 80 pounds in prison.

"Taking care of myself and exercising," he said.

Downstairs, in the lobby of the Criminal Justice Center, Lynn accepted hugs from family members and other well-wishers, while his brother straightened his collar. Meanwhile, news photographers and TV camera men were shooting through the glass windows of the CJC. [They weren't allowed to shoot pictures inside].

Lynn's lawyer, Thomas A. Bergstrom, took care of the rest of the questions.

While Bergstrom was addressing the media outside the CJC, Lynn tried to sneak out another door and leave without being noticed. But reporters and photographers made a mad dash after the monsignor. While Lynn walked away looking grim-faced, a couple of brain-dead hecklers chased him as well, repeatedly yelling "pedophile" at him.

Bergstrom, meanwhile, took District Attorney Seth Williams to task. The D.A. had called the Superior Court opinion that reversed Lynn's conviction "disappointing and puzzling;" Williams also said it was "disgusting" that the archdiocese posted a $25,000 bail deposit to free Lynn.

"He [Williams] shouldn't be out there denigrating the court and denigrating the archdiocese for posting bail," Bergstrom said.

Bergstrom was more forthcoming on how Lynn lost so much weight.

He was on "a strict diet and he worked out on a treadmill" every day, the lawyer said.

  2. I think that you are correct. I wonder if his treatment is acceptable under the law or is Sarmina abusing her power once more?

    1. Thank you for saying I am correct. However don't take my comment the wrong way. I applaud Judge Sarmina for her actions. She called all involved into court to go over the bail terms and those involved agreed to those terms with no arguments.

      This time around no person can claim like you she abused her power.

      Instead of Lynn looking out a prison window seeing nothing, he can now look out onto Rising Sun Ave. and watch the world pass him by while he thinks about his inactions.

      But thank you for telling me my comment was correct.

    5. Why is it so hard for you to accept the truth ? I wanted to be polite but since you can't see your hand in front of your face let me lay it out for you.

      Your priest Lynn was charged and convicted of a crime. He spent 18 months in a 8X10 cell for his crime. He was ordered released. Instead of being released because of the possible appeal the DA office may file he was ordered by the judge to pay $250,000 in bail, ordered to wear a ankle bracelet that will show law enforcement every step he takes, and in addition ordered to meet with his babysitter weekly to complete his humiliation.

      His original sentence was for 3-6 yrs. in prison and now with the pending appeal he may have to serve more time in confinement then his original sentence while he waits on a ruling on that appeal. Living with the possibility his original conviction will be upheld sending him back to prison to reclaim his 8X10 cell.

      And then you can be angry with me knowing that I got more than a pound of flesh but 80lbs. from a man who you wish to call hero. A man who turned children into prey,

      I and so many others will sleep well tonight knowing he is locked away, and you cannot do anything about it, only forced to accept it.

  4. This - I believe - is Sarmina's 'last hurrah', one last chance to rub salt into an open wound.

    In lobbying for this case she wanted to make a name for herself - and she sure did! And all this from someone campaigning for both a superior and supreme court judgeship. God help us!

    I'm hoping - between now and whenever the appeal is answered - that the trial lawyers take her to task with the appropriate judicial authorities for her obvious bias and obdurate misinterpretation of the EWOC statue.

    By the way, is there any expected timeline for the filing with the Supreme Court and their answer?? Can this drag on indefinitely? Come to think about it, maybe their plan is to keep Monsignor Lynn under house arrest for the forseeable future.

    Dirty Pool!

  5. He can look out his window and Thank God that he is less likely to be wrongly incarcerated for 18 years, and counting, as is Fr. MacRae.

    He'll probably spend much time in prayer and introspection. Only he and God knows if he need repent for his actions on this issue.

    It's more interesting to wonder what the Judge and the DA will do, next...they must dwell in a different kind of prison.

  6. Question begging to be answered is what is the procedure if a defendant has charges against him thrown out by Superior Court and the prosecution decides to file an appeal? Do they make the defendant provide 25K cash payment on 250K bail and require him to wear an electronic monitor while staying in a two floor house and having to ask permission from a probation officer to go to the doctor or to visit a friend?

    Most cases, prosecutors simply decline to file an appeal and respect the decision of Superior Court due to workload issues. It is obvious that Seth Williams has plenty of time to dawdle and file frivolous appeals to keep an innocent Monsignor in prison than he has to put away convicted murderers and rapists for life.

    Another issue of concern is the procedure for dealing with an abusive jurist that got shamed into action by Superior Court with a resounding rebuke of her legal judgment at arriving at such an incredible verdict and prison sentence for someone over something that did not apply at all in his case. Now Superior Court rejected the judge's reasoning and threw out the case and then it is now the preference of the same judge (Sarmina) to decide if the defendant is entitled to bail and to all other onerous conditions she decided to impose on the Monsignor, including wearing a monitoring device and visiting a probation officer each week plus having to ask the probation officer for permission to visit a doctor (are 911 calls not permitted without the permission of the probation officer?) and to have visitors. She might as well have required the Monsignor to have two rottweiler dogs watch over him for any misdeeds.

    Obviously, there are NO procedures in place to deal with an abusive judge. One way of getting relief would be to plead your case to the Presiding Judge of Common Pleas court. Given all this happened, the Presiding Judge would call Sarmina to his office and berate her for all the stupid things she has done - literally rake her over the coals! Then, to add insult to injury, take the case away from Sarmina and give it to another judge. Were that to happen, I doubt the new judge would do what Sarmina did and Lynn would have been released without having to post bail and not have to wear an ankle monitor plus no visits to the probation officer.

    Better is expected from people put on the bench by voters. Sarmina's conduct was an embarrassment to her fellow jurists and members of her own family. She knew better yet she chose to conduct herself as an arrogant judge determined to extract her pound of flesh from Lynn. She refused to grant defense motions to strike down the one count remaining on Lynn's indictment after getting crystal clear explanations from the defense that the 1972 EWOC did not apply to Lynn. Worse of all, she allowed prosecutors to introduce into evidence dozens of cases that did not apply to Lynn as he was not on duty during the time the alleged incidents occurred decades past. That was the equivalent of legal piling on.

    My advice to Bergstrom is to aggressively petition Common Pleas Court to appoint a new judge to review the bail conditions imposed by Sarmina and modify them to ensure that Lynn has dignity as a free person until this appeal is decided by the State Supreme Court.

  7. So Sarmina has a signed arrest warrant ready to go for Lynn? Is there a sign above her courtroom door stating "Fair Warning: All defendants entering this courtroom are guilty until proven innocent"?

  10. How disgusting that after the Superior Court deemed Sarmina's judgement to be "fundamentally flawed" that she is still able to humiliate him, once again, in her courtroom. She makes me sick to my stomach.

    As if she has to "personally" explain to him what electronic monitoring means...this is an educated man who has been in prison for 18 months! How dare she! She is will do ANYTHING to draw out her time in the spotlight....how transparent, how immature, how small minded she is! Does she have ANY fans? I know, probably the wrong forum to ask that question, but honestly, what was the purpose of this ridiculous waste of taxpayer dollars, once again, just to put her on stage? Makes my blood curdle.

  11. This is a fine example of be careful of what you wish for.

    A lot of you a few days ago expressed your joy that Lynn would be leaving prison, and that's fine. But what Lynn will now have to endure truly any better ? I think its worse.

    Try for only a few days to restrict yourself to two floors of your home and only able to look out the windows, all the while watching your family come and go as they please. Freedom is there past that door but you know if you take that step it may be the last for a long time.

    1. while tough, remember he is now 2.5 hours closer to home and closer to his family. he can finally enjoy and sit down with his family for meals. while the restriction are tough i am pretty sure everyone, including you heartless anon 856am, would take that over being told when to wake, eat and sleep.

      keep these insane comments coming. you continue to show with the ecker's of the world how close minded and dumb you sound with this type of statement. your holding too close to the moral issues you have with lynn and not the law that grants him his right to freedom. freedom that was taken away by a drug addicted, FOP connected individual and his family. The individual i am referring to is Daniel Gallagher, son of James Sr. and Sheila Gallagher.

    2. Hello, did someone mention my name ? I was going to stay out of this because I don't want anyone claim that I am gloating. But you must remember Lynn at this time is neither guilty or innocent of a crime. Since the DA will follow a appeal to a higher court one must remember he may have to return to prison to serve out any remaining time if the original conviction is upheld and this time spent at St.Williams will not be considered time served.

How wrong of people to hold this "man of God" to a higher moral standard! Oh, it's just soooo unfair! Why, "Msr." Lynn can't be faulted for doing his masters (the Bishops and Cardinals he took his orders from) bidding and turning known pedophile priests loose on unsuspecting congregations so they could sexually abuse even more innocent children. He was just doing his job! He is in no way responsible for all of the innocent souls he helped damage... he was just doing his job!

    1. Go back through the archives and see what he was falsely convicted on? it had nothing to do with abuse of children. so what are the concerns to families and children? All it does is put st. williams in the spotlight for a week. after that everyone will forget tha lynn is even staying there.

    2. Skiadvocate, I believe you ;identified yourself as a retired Police Captain, why don't you reach out to your fellow retiree, Detective Joe Walsh and ask him for his professional opinion on the validity of those numerous accusations of abuse of Billy Doe/aka Danny Gallagher that ultimately led to the incarcerations of Lynn, Engelhardt and Shero .....(any file he might have that cast doubt on those accusations is long gone)

      Avery was smart, he plead to the bogus assault charge, got his sweetheart deal and in the process implicated Lynn (and only LYNN) as his conspirator which contributed greatly to Lynn's conviction on the EWOC count (despite the erroneous interpretation of the law by the current DA)....

      The whole thing was a scam, Mr Skiadvocate, a con.

      perhaps one day, when this drug addict relapses and he resumes his thieving, lying and conniving way of life including the drug dealing (let's not forget the infamous 56 bags of heroin charge thrown out by the Philly judge (total of 4 arrests all plead out and/or expunged with the help of the DA's office
      ), I pray that it's not your family member that Gallagher sells the dope to in the streets of Philadelphia......

      Delete
    3. If Mr. Gallagher "resumes his thieving" as you say it won't be because he needs any money. He will have plenty of money from your pocket and your church's pocket.

      If he started with drugs again I don't see himself selling on the streets. Why should he ? He has enough of your money to hire employees.

      Stop being so angry, vent if you wish. Accept what is happening. And the phrase I heard so many times MOVE ON.

      Let me know by you or anyone else how easy you think that is.

    4. Lets not put this lying drug addict on easy street yet, Dennis, he's sued everyone and everything but the kitchen sink in this case which should allow for the utmost of scrutiny in the upcoming civil trial....I'd much prefer the archdiocese spend their money defending that extortion attempt, if they have to sell a couple more buildings, close a few schools etc., so be it......and I have absolutely no problem with the archdiocese putting up the bail money.....for him not to get bail after the conviction was overturned by the higher court would have been another example of trampling of his civil rights.......Sarmina did get her pound of flesh though......Ralph described it perfectly, the dog and pony show.....

    5. If history repeats itself the AOP will do its best to settle any suits out of court. The first reason would be its cheaper. Second would be they do not wish anything to jump out of a closet that may harm them in the future.

      Lynn did receive bail. The terms of his bail were agreed by his attorney. Now there are individuals who are upset because after the celebration of his release are realizing the removal of his freedom may extend past his original release date from prison, and if his original conviction is upheld by the higher court he may have to go back to prison to serve out his time. Again combined with the St. Williams restrictions along with the remaining time he must serve is more then what his original sentence would have bee.

      Delete
    6. Not really, home confinement is creditable to remaining time to be served in prison. Secondly, has anyone considered using the ADA to petition for a reasonable removal of the ankle monitor so that Lynn is able to go to the gym to exercise and to talk walks around the block for fresh air? His movements should be confined to a radius of three miles away from the rectory where he is living. Remember the ADA is federal law and so trumps local law.

      And remember people in jail get to play outside and to exercise in the exercise room.

  13. He was convicted of moving predator priests from parish to another. How does this have nothing to do with abuse of children?

    1. In his current role with the church is he able to perform that task now? no, hasn't been for some time as he moved back to a parish priest years ago.

      another questions, was lynn ever accused of inappropriate behavior with a minor? let me answer that for you - no.

      so all his presence at st. williams does is bring the focus to that neighborhood until you and everyone else find the new matter of the week to focus on.

  17. When sex offenders leave prison usually they must register in the area they will reside. It alerts the residence of a potential danger in their neighborhood. Lynn may never had to register because he did not sexually abuse, but the media spotlight on this case has alerted the neighbors of St. Williams to a potential danger to children. A person who did not put the safety of children first.

  18. Hypocrites.

    Your city has been at the top of the bad boy list for violent crime and government corruption for at least two generations.

    You have one of the worst violent crime and government corruption records - right up there with Camden, Trenton, Newark, Chicago and NYC. And, you're rather 'puny' compared with the big guys in NYC and Chicago, aren't you? Actually, your stats on crime and corruption are quite disproportionate to your size, aren't they?

    You can thank your leftist policies/politicians for that sad fact, just as we can thank the same for the persecution of the Catholic Church. Perhaps, you should ask your dear leaders to clean up their own houses since the odds are greatly (exponentially) in favor of you and your children (you know, the real ones under 40-50-60 years old) being victimized by anyone other than Catholic priests in grand old Philly.

    Yet, you lament the risk to 'children' from putting Lynn under house arrest.

    You are Frauds, Bigots and Liars of the first order. You represent your City of Brotherly Love quite fairly.

      Meanwhile, congregations are growing, the seminaries are filling up, and the world loves Pope Francis.
      And in 2014 the world will witness the unraveling of one of the biggest judicial disgraces in recent history, involving multiple miscarriages of justice. And guess who will emerge the stronger for it? Here's a clue: it won't be the Philadelphia PD or Philadelphia's rancid "justice" system.

    2. Speaking of libel and slander, unless you or your mommy and daddy filed charges against your offender immediately when the offense was committed, you may be complicit in advancing that perpetrators ability to continue to offend (sometimes these predators partner up with "Judas" minors [aka co-conspirators] to procure new targets), or, you are lying about being abused (perhaps you were a Judas 'helper'?) and are, therefore, guilty of committing libel and slander against that man.

    6. Ralph, You do understand how the missing story could have raised questions by your readers.

      The story was about one of if not the biggest player in the clergy sexual abuse scandal, and that person happens to be a judge.

      You say "all is well" then we will take your word. It does not seem you are conccerned about it

      Will you tell us eventually what happened ? People did leave comments making them involved as much as you.

  26. What proof do you have of your claims? Being in the same dimension of space and time of the alleged perpetrator is not proof of anything other than that; what physical proof do you have that you were violated?

    Here's what isn't proof beyond a reasonable doubt: a plea bargain (especially in an atmosphere of Catholic clergy barbecues), one's 'word', or a court settlement.

    Here's what is proof; a police report filed immediately after the commission of the crime, a medical record/report that confirms that a crime occurred, pursuit of justice (due diligence) through the legal channels afforded all citizens.

    Got some?

    No?

    Go away, and take your annoying, whiney wolf with you, little boy.

  27. Prove this, prove that. You know the truth son. You are only afraid to admit it because it would only make liars out of the people you listened to for decades that priests can do no wrong.

  28. How does anybody know the truth about your 'story'?

    Suppose a woman appeared out of your past, from 30 years ago, and claimed that you raped her, with no more evidence than her 'word'/'story' - do you think it is fair that you should have to defend against her allegations?

    Now, imagine that the mainstream media and unfriendly governments have launched an ideological war against all white, middle class males (which is underway, incidentally) and are gunning for you, anyway, regardless of any truths, because they also have a political (leftist) agenda.

    Assuming you wear a collared shirt, turn it around. You are now fair game in that dirty little political war.

    Your attempts to demean or demoralize opponents are laid bare by the fact that you are admittedly pursuing a bigoted vendetta against Catholics.

    You make many erroneous assumptions. One of the many is that you claim that your opposition does not admit wrong-doing by some clergy. I've yet to see one commenter, or Church official, that makes such a claim. On what, specifically, are you basing your erroneous claim that your opposition claims priests can do no wrong?

    You see, we make no false claims. We only assert that there is an anti-Catholic agenda driving the persecution of the Catholic Church. That is the truth, and even you cannot hide the facts (evidence, proof) supporting that claim.

    On the other hand, your claims that you were victimized by a priest (30-40 years ago?), which was covered up (again, proof?), so therefore everyone who makes such a claim should be believed - implying that all priests are guilty, or are, as you called them 'little monsters" - are claims that are clearly subject to serious analyses and investigation, and the production of evidence/proof, at a minimum under the rule of law.

    Got proof of any of your claims?

    Didn't think so.

    You're just executing your (well-documented) anti-Catholic agenda, therefore, you have no credibility on this matter. Your hatred for Catholics has replaced your objectivity, you have nothing to offer. Your 15 minutes of 'e-fame' have expired. It is only by the good graces of blog operators and merciful Catholics that you survive in this sphere.

    Accept 'this'- your heyday of persecuting innocent priests because you don't like Catholic theology/ideology, or Catholics in general, is over. The truth set us free over 2000 years ago, and it just set Msgr. Lynn free, hopefully for good. Soon, it will set other innocent clergy and wrongly convicted and persecuted Catholics free.

    Beware, the bigoted 'little monster' that you and your evil friends created does not come hunting for you, soon.

      Yet, in all their comments, no real meat there, is there? It is just like the abuse claims against Catholic priests in that regard- mostly lefty hype, lies, distortions- but, no meat.

      Leftists must use the power of government (how many priests are being persecuted in states/cities not corrupted by leftists in government?), which they have thoroughly infiltrated, to level the playing field because they simply cannot compete in the marketplace. They cannot compete physically, morally or intellectually unless they have illegally hijacked the venue. And, when they are challenged without the benefit of government regulation and oversight, as they are on this blog (well, for now, at least), they lie, and they cry foul.

Just a note of 'interest', would not want to threaten any of the overly [fraudulent?] sensitive types, here.

    Boo!

    I wonder what this teachers unions position on the Catholic clergy abuse witch-hunt is/has been? Too bad the public school kids don't have any of that 'useless' USCCB "Zero Tolerance" policy to protect them. Maybe public school kids are simply being offered up to the leftist pagan gods as sacrifices? You know, as it was before Christianity (Catholicism) saved all the children from fates worse than paganism/leftism (see below).

    Sarah - If I feared stupid I would be concerned with JAE's comments, and these monsters are nothing more then what kids fear living underneath their bed I like to use the term cowardly animals but I will push that monster phrase since that is how JAE's POPE describes his clergy, similar to how the Archdiocese of Philadelphia archbishop chaput calls his parishioners pagans.

    I would be interested in learning more about this communist twist to his thinking. But then again only if I was reading something from a sane individual and I don't see that in his case since HE makes the comment "The truth set us free over 2000 years ago, and it just set Msgr. Lynn free, hopefully for good", followed by another comment stating "No one said Msgr. Lynn was granted complete freedom to come and go as he wishes". Well you did chuckles. At last check JAE Mr. Lynn is still serving time at St. Williams counting ceiling tiles. I hear he has half of the first floor done eventually moving onto the second floor. We are the liars and distorters. Give me a break.

    Sarah, we have seen people like this come and go and this person too will be gone. Until then we need to pat him on the head and say be silent son adults are talking, you should be seen and not heard.

    But, let's not lose sight of exactly what happened in our exchange: he was challenged to respond to the possibility of false claims being made against him. And, what did he do? He immediately ran to the threat posture. Interestingly, he apparently didn't do as much when he [claims] he was abused by a priest. More importantly, he isn't very, or at all sympathetic to the hundreds of priests faced with similar challenges. How the stripes on this paper tiger have changed.

    And, how absolutely ironic given his position on the likelihood of false claims against innocent priests, within the context of his own claims, that he doesn't see the duplicity of his actions - then, and now.

  39. Msgr. Lynn is restricted to two floors of the rectory that ARE NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. In order to celebrate a PUBLIC Mass (he can celebrate a valid PRIVATE Mass or a Mass for whoever is legally allowed to visit him,) or perform any other minesterial service, he would have to go to the church, which is not in bounds of his home confinement, or to the PUBLIC areas of the rectory, which oddly enough are NOT in bounds of his home confinement either. Either event would require advance permission from his PAROLE (?!?) Officer; permission that likely would never be given. Thus, Msgr Lynn CANNOT function pubically as a priest, or as ANYTHING ELSE. Archbishop Chaput was probably told to say this so that if Williams et al accuse Msgr Lynn of violating parole, that the Church is not accused of "aiding and abeting." Also, when priests are being tried for felony crimes, they are usually placed on administrative leave AND REMAIN THERE until all aspects of the judicial process are completed, including any sentence to be served if convicted. This is particularly true if the accused priest's lawful movements are restricted in a manner such as Msgr Lynn's are.

  42. I have been a lurker on here for a while and want to share a few points:

    1. I find this whole situation ironic. Lynn is being treated by the criminal justice system as he had treated alleged victims of abuse. Many people are outraged by the treatment that Lynn has received, yet they do not share the same outrage over Lynn's complicit behavior. While Lynn's behavior may not have been criminal, it was not moral either.

    2. What is with the "anti Catholic bigot" rhetoric? Why are people who disagree with the Church's behavior labeled a bigot? It seems to me that calling someone a bigot limits any opportunity for real discussion. How can one reasonably respond to being called a bigot? It ends all discussion. Are people who disagree with Seth Williams racist?

    3. Why does everyone take this story at face value? Could Seth Williams be in bed with the Church? Take down Lynn, but do not touch Cistone or Rigali. Is such a bargain out of the realm of possibility?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To Anon 9:59 AM:

      1. " While Lynn's behavior may not have been criminal, it was not moral either." I'm trying really hard to believe that you didn't actually write that. The guy has just done a long stretch in prison. If people are to be put away for immoral behavior, please re-read all Ralph's posts on the behavior of judges, DA officials, attorneys, cops and jury members. You find the "whole situation ironic"? My friend, your comment is about as ironic as it gets.

      2. What is with the "anti Catholic bigot" rhetoric?" Really? Have you been lurking - or sleeping?
      "Are people who disagree with Seth Williams racist?" Nope. Zero evidence of racial bigotry.

      I'd go back to lurking if I were you.

      Delete
    2. Justone,

      I think you read my post a little too literally. So allow me to clarify:

      1. I did not say that Lynn should go to jail for immoral behavior. Instead, I was pointing out that Lynn did not do a good job as the Secretary of the Clergy. At his trial, Lynn stated that things "fell through the cracks." He even admitted that he could have and should have done better. Some instances of alleged abuse were not confronted. In short, Lynn was incompetent and, frankly, immoral (we are talking about alleged sex abuse, not something that is trivial). Now, compare Lynn's job performance to the job of Sarmina. I see Lynn as being very similar to Sarmina. Strange bedfellows perhaps, but their job performance was very similar.

      2. The anti-Catholic bigot phrase is just laughable. Consider the history of the word, especially in America. Sorry, but someone who does not agree with the Church's decisions or behavior does not make them a bigot. Throwing around the bigot phrase also prevents people from having real dialogue about these issues. How can one respond to being called a bigot? And freely using such a phrase suggests that there is no substance to your arguments. Kind of like, "I have nothing really to say, so I'll just call you a name." Also, consider Bishops Kenrick and Neumann. Or how about Archbishop Wood, Ryan, and Prendergast. They faced true anti-Catholic bigotry. Obviously, calling people who disagree with Seth Williams racist is ridiculous and you're right, there is no evidence of racial bigotry. However, I just used it as a juxtaposition to the anti-Catholic bigot phrase, as both statements are ridiculous.

      3. You never responded to my last part. Do you think the Church could have struck a deal with the DA to prevent the prosecution of higher ups? Take Lynn, hands off Cistone and Rigali. It makes some sense.

      Lastly, why do people think Seth Williams is going after the Church to score political points? The Democrats in Philly can roll out a dead person and win. Why would he even need to beat up on the Church?

      Thank you and have a nice day.

    3. Anonymous, 9:30AM.
      I appreciate your response.
      I don't think you can equate Lynn's behavior with Sarmina's. Lynn's was clumsy but not malevolent. Sarmina's was both.
      Anti-Catholic bigotry is alive and well in the US. "The last acceptable prejudice." Please familiarize yourself with the work of TheMediaReport and Catholic League, both of which do an excellent job of highlight this iniquity.
      This bigotry explains the asymmetry (if not disconnect) between what actually happened in the Church from the mid 60s to mid 80s and how that has been reported by the mainstream media since 2002. It was actually a homosexual issue, not a pedophilia one (society has that problem, epidemically, today). All sorts of groups have, over the last decade, used the historical abuse issue of the Church as a way to attack the Church today (again, the asymmetry) - for all sorts of reasons and agendas, the least of which is usually concern about vulnerable children. The only thing they have in common is their bigotry and hysteria.
      On the third point, with the greatest respect, I don't normally comment on conspiracy theories (one of the posters on here believes SNAP is a Catholic organization!). They are, in fact, one of the bigoted groups I allude to above. A very hysterical one at that.
      And on the fourth point, you would be better qualified than me to comment on that.

  43. 1. You are correct. I just don't think we should be putting people in prison for moral lapses otherwise we are going to need lots more prisons.
