Orlando Diocese Ordered To Pay In Sex Abuse Cases

Local6 is reporting...

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Diocese of Orlando and the Diocese of St. Augustine have been ordered to pay one of the largest settlements in state history in connection with several clergy sexual abuse cases, according to Local 6 News.

The $1.5 million settlement is on behalf of three victims who accused Vernon Uhran and Herbert Reason of sexually abusing them when they were children more than 30 years ago, Local 6 News reported.

Both Uhran and Herbert Reason were priests at Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic Church in Altamonte Springs, Fla., where some of the abuse allegedly occurred, Local 6 News reported.

You don't pay out this kind of money unless you've done something wrong. The enablers are being held financially accountable. Why aren't they being held criminally accountable, as accomplices, for their actions?

Kind of like a shark feeding frenzy, if you ask me. None of this makes any sense at all other than the church trying to keep it all as quiet as possible and greedy people taking advantage. I'm not saying that the acts didn't happen, but what will $$ do to remedy what was done? Certainly not what the bible teaches. So, after that have their pound of flesh ... now what? Is happiness and restitution found in the almighty dollar? I don't think so.

The main problem is the homosexual priesthood. One of the seminaries the diocese uses (St. John Vianey) is being sued by a Polish priest over discrimination, harassments, etc. all over these homosexual priests. "Bishop" Dorsey wanted to bring in another one of these priests but apparently "Bishop" Wenski had some sense left and didn't allow it to happen.

This is only the tip of the iceburg. Once they get "Cardinal" Mahoney out in Los Angeles, that will be over a billion dollars!

This is aside from how liberal this diocese is. The true Catholic faith cannot be found in the diocese operated churches, at least the Roman Rite. Maybe in the Byzantine churches but I've never been to one. Atleast the Society of St. Pius X chapel has unadultered Roman Catholicism as it was practiced before the French Revolution of Vatican II.

In several places in the gospel, Jesus says that His church will not have people in charge and giving orders, in other words, no hierarchy. When people surrender themselves to this hierarchy, they give power over themselves to this hierarchy. Power corrupts. Is it any wonder that those in power take advantage of the sheeple who allow them to do this?

Before anybody flames me for being an ignorant protestant, know that I was raised in a very rc home, went to eight years of elementary school under the Vincentian Sisters of Charity, and finished with four years run by the Brothers of the Holy Cross (Congregatio Sancte Cruce sp?), who are the same folks who own and operate Notre Dame University.

Sola scriptura error. What about the people living before the Bible was in print?

Just from the Bible (a CATHOLIC document, BTW), let alone tradition;

"He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent me, I also send you. When he had said this, he breathed on them; and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained." St. John 20:21-23.

"Simon Peter answered and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven. And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven." St. Matthew 16:16-19.

Christ willed that his Church be ran by man. Though He is at the head of His Church, no man is perfect. We will have good clergy, and bad clergy. History has shown this time and time again. It's people like you that are setting up your own authority! 1,000,000 sects believing in differant false dogmas.

Funny how Protestants (heretics) say they take the Bible word for word but have a problem interpretting this and the words
