Sanityandsense.com has selected Cardinal Justin Rigali as ” Dirtball of the Decade.” Cardinal Rigali was selected because he is a sleazy, slimy, underhanded, and deceptive dirtball who has covered up child sexual abuse by pedophile priests under his authority.
Sanityandsense.com published an article titled: ” Child Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church.” This article was published on February 7, 2011, and can be viewed by clicking on the February, 2011, archive.
The Philadelphia archdiocese suspended 21 Catholic priests on Tuesday, March 8, 2011. A member of the ” Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests” stated that Rigali should have suspended the priests much sooner. In addition the spokesman stated: ” There is a simple reason that dozens of credibly accused child molesters have recklessly been kept in unsuspecting parishes for years … It’s because Rigali and his top aids want it that way.”
Cardinal Rigali is one sorry excuse for a human being. Sanityandsense.com finds it incomprehensible that this repulsive individual can even consider himself a Christian. It is abundantly clear that a federal task force is needed to work with state law enforcement in all fifty states. This federal task force should employ both criminal and civil RICO laws to shut down all parts of the Catholic church, and more importantly, sieze all assets of this corrupt organization. The Catholic church has become an ongoing organization for pedophiles.
I sincerely hope that Cardinal Rigali has the opportunity to pray for forgiveness from a jail cell for the rest of his life. Also, I devoutly hope that Rigali serves his time in a state prison so he has the opportunity to learn a new meaning of ” turn the other cheek.” That would be justice indeed.
