Yesterday was Palm Sunday. It’s the start of Holy Week, which ends on Easter Sunday. A former Belgian bishop and pedophile, Roger Vangheluwe, disappeared from his monastery yesterday. Where did he go? The response has pretty much been, “Hell if I know. Ask the papal nuncio office in Belgium.”
Lovely. I hope the French police are trying to find this guy. Or will it be another case of “Let the Vatican handle it?” I’m getting pretty damn sick of hearing stuff like this. The Church playing musical pedophiles, victims not getting justice, and when they’re exposed, no one keeps an eye on them.
I especially want this guy caught and brought to justice. After molesting two of his nephews, he doesn’t consider himself a pedophile and that children would be safe around him. I’m not even going to paraphrase. Here:
“As in all families: when they came to visit, my nephews would stay over. It began as a kind of game with this boy. It was never a question of rape, or physical violence. He never saw me naked and there was no penetration. I don’t in the slightest have any sense I am a paedophile. I don’t get the impression my nephew was opposed, quite the contrary.”
Oh. My. God. There are no words for scum like that. He did say, “I knew it wasn’t good, I confessed it several times.” Cool! Because that makes it all better. Ugh.
Kids will be hunting for colorful Easter eggs on Sunday. I hope someone is hunting for a pedophile. Starting today.
