If Cardinal Seán Brady believes in God he should give himself up to the police.

By Declan White

If Cardinal Seán Brady believes in God he should give himself up to the police.

Brady should be tried for child endangerment after he failed to protect the sex abuse victims of Fr. Brendan Smyth.

Brady must face criminal charges for frightening two youngsters in 1975 from reporting Smyth to the police after he molested them.

Fr. Smyth went on to abuse and rape more children.

He molested children for five decades in Ireland, UK, Europe and the US, while he was protected and hidden by Catholic Church officials from the police who were hunting him.

Brady bears a heavy responsibility for Fr. Smyth’s subsequent victims.

If he had any decency in him, or any belief in God or an after-life, Brady would voluntarily set himself before a jury.

But what garda in Ireland has the guts to be a real police officer and go and arrest Brady?

What civil servant or law officer working for the Irish government has the morality to send Brady for trial?

The cops, the government officials along with the Catholic Church did not save the children … they saved the Church’s reputation and allowed more children to suffer.

Brady knew of the terrible crimes Fr. Smyth had committed on children.

Brady was responsible for Fr. Smyth’s ensuing sexual abuse of kiddies and Brady failed to provide them an adequate duty of care.

Brady must be faced with a penalty of years in prison and a large cash fine because Brady was involved in a cover-up of the most heinous crimes.

Brady “was part of a secret tribunal which failed to notify the police after an altar boy told how pervert priest Smyth had abused him,” I reported in the Sunday Mirror on August 10th, 1997, under the headline Archbishop Brady knew about evil Smyth for 22 years.

Repeated calls were made to Brady to resign because of his part in the cover-up of child abuse by clerics in his jurisdiction.

Brady was promoted to Primate of All Ireland in 1996, and he was further promoted to a cardinal in 2007, but to this day Brady is still denying Christ.

Brady is living an anti-Christ life.

To quote Wikipedia: “The Cardinal told RTÉ News in an interview, broadcast in December 2009 after the publication of the Murphy Report, that he was confident Bishop Donal Murray of Limerick will “do the right thing” in terms of considering his position in the wake of criticism in the Dublin diocesan report.[18] He also said in that interview “If I found myself in a situation where I was aware that my failure to act had allowed or meant that other children were abused, well then, I think I would resign.”

“In March 2010 it became widely known that the then Father Seán Brady had participated in an internal Church legal process into the actions of Father Brendan Smyth in 1975. The process required all participants to maintain the confidentiality of the tribunal. Smyth went on to abuse dozens of children before being brought to justice in 1994.[21]Taken alongside his statement in December, this led to widespread calls for Cardinal Brady’s resignation.[22][23] The information of this internal process had been publicly available as far back as 10 August 1997 in an article by Declan White in the Mirror.[24]

“One of those who was a child interviewed in the internal process is suing Cardinal Brady on the grounds that complaints about Fr. Smyth were not reported to the Garda, that steps were not taken to prevent Fr. Smyth from committing further assaults, that the children were required to sign oaths not to discuss the complaints and that the failure to report the complaints led to the plaintiff and others not receiving appropriate medical treatment.[25]

“The then Labour Party spokesman on social and family affairs Róisín Shortall TD, said Cardinal Brady was “hopelessly compromised by what has emerged”. She said, “There should be a Garda investigation to determine whether or not the failure to report Fr Smyth’s crimes to the civil authorities was, itself, a criminal offence.”[26]

“On 17 March 2010, the deputy First Minister for Northern Ireland, Martin McGuinness, called for Brady to resign.[27]

“In May 2010, Cardinal Brady said that he would not resign as archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland.”

Brady allowed Fr. Smyth to go on a raping rampage for almost two decades because Brady walked on the side of evil by not reporting the beast Fr. Smyth to the authorities.

There is no excuse.

Brady has acted in an anti-Christ manner for over four decades.

Brady well knows the teaching of Jesus:

Matthew 18:6
“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

To save himself suffering in the after-life Brady should atone for his cover-up in this life by giving himself up to the police, admitting his guilt, setting the record straight, and taking his punishment for not reporting Fr. Smyth.

In the 1970s Brady had scared the wits out of those two youngsters with horror stories of them going to Hell if they dared tell the police about them being abused by the paedophile priest.

Brady did not care for the children, instead he endangered more children, because he wanted to protect the Catholic Church’s reputation at the expense of the wee ones.

Brady hushed up Fr. Smyth’s molestations of children for fear of bad publicity.

Brady walked free but the suffering for the abused victims will last the rest of their lives, and their parents also have to live with that anguish.

Brady would not have gotten away with his crimes in the US where on March 23, 2017:

Ex-Penn State Univeristy president Graham Spanier was convicted of child endangerment for failing to protect victims sexually abused by one of his staff.

Spanier was found guilty of one count of child endangerment, and he failed to provide them an adequate duty of care.

This is exactly what Brady did … but while the president of a prestigious US university faced a court, Brady walks free in Ireland.

Ex-Penn State president convicted of child endangerment for failing to protect Jerry Sandusky’s sex abuse victims

 

Penn State University’s former president Graham Spanier has been convicted of child endangerment over his handling of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

A jury in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, found Spanier guilty of one count of child endangerment.

They determined that he was responsible for victims who were sexually assaulted by former Penn State assistant football coach Sandusky in a school locker room shower in 2001.

Sandusky, a former assistant football coach, was convicted of abusing 10 boys in 2012. He is behind bars serving a 30 to 60 year sentence.

Spanier, who showed no emotion when the verdict was read after 13 hours of deliberations, faces a maximum penalty of seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Jurors on Friday acquitted the 68-year-old Spanier of the other two counts he faced: conspiracy based on the alleged cover-up of Sandusky’s crime and another count of child endangerment accusing him of blocking a damning report into his conduct.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro tweeted Friday: ‘No one is above the law. My office will hold anyone accountable who abuses or fails to protect kids.’

An investigator told jurors in Spanier’s case that four of the eight young men who testified during Sandusky’s trial that he had abused them were abused after a 2001 report that Sandusky had abused a boy in a team shower.

Two of Spanier’s former lieutenants who also dealt with complaints about Sandusky pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge and testified against Spanier.

The verdict comes more than five years after Sandusky was first charged with sexually abusing children.

Deputy Attorney General Patrick Schulte told jurors on Tuesday that Spanier and others agreed not to report Sandusky and, as a result, ‘evil in the form of Jerry Sandusky was allowed to run wild’.

Spanier resigned as university president in 2011 in the wake of the scandal.

Spanier, who did not testify in his defense, has maintained that he only acted upon the information they had at the time.

He and his legal team insist they felt was that Sandusky was only engaging in ‘horseplay’ with a child and not any form of child abuse.

Defense attorney Sam Silver disputed any notion that his client and others didn’t respond to the 2001 complaint about Sandusky.

‘They made a decision they believed was appropriate under the circumstances,’ said Silver, accusing prosecutors of trying to ‘criminalize a judgment call’.

Schulte told the jury of seven women and five men about a May 1998 incident in which a mother reported Sandusky showering with her son, and said Schultz informed Spanier ‘because the president of the university should be apprised of something like that’.

After a month the investigation by police and child welfare agencies ended with no charges being filed.

After Mike McQueary, a former graduate assistant football coach, complained about Sandusky showering with a boy in a team facility, Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley decided to talk to Sandusky and bar him from bringing children onto campus rather than report him to child-welfare authorities, Schulte said.

They told him if he didn’t get help they would report him, Schulte said.

‘Gary Schultz is going to tell you that he is very regretful of the decision to not be firmer in insisting’ they report the matter to state child-welfare authorities, he said.

McQueary told jurors Tuesday he was sure he told Curley and Schultz that he saw Sandusky behind a prepubescent boy, in a dark shower at night, with his hips moving slightly.

‘I told them that I saw Jerry molesting a boy,’ McQueary said.

Wendell Courtney, then Penn State’s general counsel, said he told Schultz to report it the state child-welfare authorities, even though Schultz ‘absolutely’ did not describe it as a sexual attack.

‘It was the smart and prudent and appropriate thing to do,’ Courtney testified.

The former director of The Second Mile, a charity Sandusky founded to help underprivileged Pennsylvania youth, often in need of foster homes, and where he met most of his victims, said Curley told him that an investigation into the incident McQueary witnessed determined nothing inappropriate had occurred.

Psychologist Jack Raykovitz, who headed the agency for at-risk youth, said he advised Sandusky to wear swim trunks if he showered with children in the future. He also informed several high-ranking board members of The Second Mile about the matter.

The Second Mile did not take steps to keep Sandusky away from children until 2008, when it was told Sandusky was the target of an investigation.

Sandusky was not arrested until 2011 after an anonymous tip led prosecutors to investigate the shower incident.

Four of the eight young men testifying at Sandusky’s trial said the abuse occurred after 2001.

Schultz and Curley had faced the same charges as Spanier before they pleaded guilty last week to a single misdemeanor count of child endangerment and testified against Spanier.

They await sentencing.
