ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Cardinal Bernard Law is dead and he escaped justice here on earth because he was protected and shielded from criminal prosecution, now his fate is in God’s hands. The shame, disgrace and black stain upon the Catholic Church regarding Church leaders protecting sexual predator and pedophile priests and caregivers is what Pope Francis must address now. Cardinal Law was promoted by the former Pope, instead of prosecuted. Cardinal Bernard Law should have spent the rest of his life in prison for his part in protecting sexual predators and pedophile priests and for enabling them to continue to rape dozens upon dozens of children. You do not honor someone involved in such heinous crimes and atrocities.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation which advocates for vulnerable children has been shining a light on the current Church Sexual Predator Cover-Up Scandal that must finally be addressed and dealt with by Pope Francis. But, first everyone must understand what we are dealing with regarding Catholic Church systemic failures within and their actions protecting other institutions and institutional and government leaders involved.

Cardinal Bernard Law will be remembered for protecting sexual predators and for protecting one of the worst known serial pedophile and rapist priests in Church history – John Geoghan.

If you Google John Geoghan this will pop up on Wikipedia;

“John J. Geoghan (/ˈɡeɪɡən/; June 4, 1935 – August 23, 2003) was an American Roman Catholic priest and serial child rapist while he was assigned to parishes in the Boston Archdiocese of Massachusetts. He was assigned to several parish posts involving interaction with children, even after receiving treatment for pedophilia.

The investigation and prosecution of Geoghan was one of numerous cases of priests accused of sexual abuse in a scandal that rocked the archdiocese in the 1990s and 2000s. It led to the resignation of Boston's archbishop, Cardinal Bernard Francis Law, on December 13, 2002. Law lost the support of fellow clergy and the laity after it was shown that his response to allegations against dozens of priests consisted of assigning them to different parishes, thus allowing sexual abuse of additional children to take place.”

Here is the first Boston Globe Spotlight investigative team exposé that started it all in 2002.

“Church allowed abuse by priest for years”

“Aware of Geoghan record, archdiocese still shuttled him from parish to parish”


This bombshell exposé started the avalanche of revelation that Catholic Church leaders were knowingly allowing pedophile priests to sexually victimize and rape hundreds of more innocent children. Here is from the very beginning of this incredible news piece that had to come out;

“Since the mid-1990s, more than 130 people have come forward with horrific childhood tales about how former priest John J. Geoghan allegedly fondled or raped them during a three-decade spree through a half-dozen Greater Boston parishes.
Almost always, his victims were grammar school boys. One was just 4 years old.
Then came last July’s disclosure that Cardinal Bernard F. Law knew about Geoghan’s problems in 1984, Law’s first year in Boston, yet approved his transfer to St. Julia’s parish in Weston.”

Just a little later in this same exposé which you must read for yourselves because the truth come out. What was written shines a light on the much bigger problem, which is the worst of the worst offenders, those that protect and shield sexual predators and pedophiles, which allows them to continue to do what they do, which is to commit crimes, rape and destroy lives.

“Now, as Geoghan faces the first of two criminal trials next week, details about his sexual compulsion are likely to be overshadowed by a question that many Catholics find even more troubling: Why did it take a succession of three cardinals and many bishops 34 years to place children out of Geoghan’s reach?”

Currently, many Bishops and Cardinals within the Catholic Church worldwide are guarding and protecting sexual predator priests and caregivers of the disabled that are raping innocent children and people with disabilities. Many Church leaders, Bishops and Cardinals, are protecting government leaders that are allowing these atrocities to continue, if they were not silent and complicit, the massive sex cover-ups would have been diminished drastically. What has surfaced in Australia is happening in many parts of the world today and the Catholic Church hierarchy has not addressed the institutional cover-ups by its top leaders.


Watch this less than 3 minute “Spotlight” movie trailer than please watch the full movie as soon as you can to fully grasp and understand how horrific sex crimes committed against vulnerable people with disabilities also get buried and covered-up. Try to wrap your mind around how many people have to be involved to protect powerful institutions that are more damn concerned about money and protecting themselves.


The sad fact is what the Catholic Church was caught doing, protecting and shielding sexual predator and pedophile priests is the exact same as what is going on in New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s mental health agencies. The same wicked pattern of protecting pedophile priests was exposed by the Boston Globe’s, Spotlight investigative reporting team in 2002; their hard work won them a Pulitzer Prize. Two Catholic Church leaders, Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Bishop Edward Scharfenberger have known about the cover-ups of thousands of sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled, yet have remained silent and complicit. Pope Francis has been asked to remove both Cardinal Dolan and Bishop Scharfenberger for their involvement in protecting countless sexual predators instead of the disabled which hopefully will happen soon. When Catholic Church leaders look the other way and protect a Catholic Governor that has been protecting sexual predators for over a decade emergency actions must be taken by the Pope.

For over ten years Attorney General Cuomo and then Governor Andrew Cuomo have protected countless sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists within State run and private mental health facilities and group homes from firing and prosecution. This timeline proves years of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s direct involvement.


This was released publicly yesterday in a national press release by the Jonathan Carey Foundation before the news came out to notify everyone of the death of the notorious Cardinal who protected and allowed John Geoghan to rape dozens of children and destroy so many lives.

“Breaking News: Catholic Church leaders in New York State are looking the other way as thousands of women and children with disabilities are being raped in institutions and group homes. Pope Francis, this is not ‘fake news’ or old news, this is current news, it is happening right now in New York State as your Church leaders look the other way.”

Pedophiles Catholic priests are sexual predators, anyone that rapes a disabled person is a sexual predator and Church and government leaders protecting sexual predators are not only committing ‘grave sins’ they are even worse criminals. People that rape children are very sick individuals, but people that knowingly protect these sick people committing such evil acts are committing far greater evil.

Thousands of reported sexual assaults and rapes of vulnerable New Yorkers, many of whom are vulnerable Catholic’s are covered-up by Governor Cuomo and his corrupt Justice Center. Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Bishop Edward Scharfenberger have known about the scope of these sexual assaults, rapes and cover-ups for an extended period of time, Michael Carey the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation has repeatedly informed them and sought their help, but they chose to do nothing to stop the sex crimes and the criminal cover-ups which are atrocities. Pope Francis must remove Bishop Scharfenberger and Cardinal Dolan.

Church leaders are supposed to stand up and speak up for righteousness, they are not to be silent and complicit as the most vulnerable among us are being raped and severely damaged by very sick and sexually deviant individuals. Pope Francis must finally start to look at and address the real underlying and root problems why so many sexual predators remain in positions to harm our most vulnerable, which are the Church and governmental leaders involved in protecting these sexual predators and the wide-scale discrimination of the disabled.

Most sexual predators and sex crimes can be stopped very quickly if Pope Francis and other governmental leaders move to protect the safety and lives of extremely vulnerable women and children, instead of trying to protect their institutions. There must be zero tolerance and it must start at the very top – everyone involved cannot continue to escape justice. Bishops and Cardinals must be removed and prosecuted for their crimes.

Pope Francis, has received a number of emails by Michael Carey and the Pope has seen the Jonathan Carey Foundation’s investigative work and the foundation’s series on Pope Francis News Today which is attached below. The Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing to light facts and real current new, not ‘fake news.’ Over the last few weeks, the case has been brought out publicly for everyone to see. The New York Times has just reported on the horrors and sexual atrocities in Australia facilities and institutions in which the Catholic Church was heavily involved.

Pope Francis must now address this international crisis surrounding sexual predators preying on the disabled which is occurring in a far greater scope than the pedophile priest sex scandal. Pope Francis’s actions now are critical for the Catholic Church to makes significant changes. The Pope must start by removing all the Bishops and Cardinals involved in guarding the sexual predators and the Catholic Church Institution instead of the most vulnerable. This damning New York Times news is incredibly important and the quotes below are extremely powerful.


“Tens of thousands of children have been sexually abused in many Australian institutions,” said the report, which was particularly critical of Catholic organizations. “We will never know the true number. Whatever the number, it is a national tragedy, perpetrated over generations within many of our most trusted institutions.”

“It is not a case of a few rotten apples,” the report said. “Society’s major institutions have seriously failed. In many cases those failings have been exacerbated by a manifestly inadequate response to the abused person. The problems have been so widespread, and the nature of the abuse so heinous, that it is difficult to comprehend.”

It is important to repeat this quote again because of the significance of this statement;

“Society’s major institutions have seriously failed”

“This quote is true, it is a fact – the Catholic Church has failed in this area. New York State has failed in this area. Many people in top positions of authority in many different institutions have failed to protect our children and people with disabilities. We are at a defining moment in time to bring critical changes and to stop failing our children and the most vulnerable with disabilities. We must work together and do what is right and just and to start winning.” – Michael Carey

Michael Carey is the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation which advocates for the safety, equal rights and lives of people with disabilities. Michael Carey is calling on Pope Francis to step up to the plate in a big way to begin to deal with the much bigger problems that have never been addressed. Top Church leaders and governmental leaders are involved in protecting and enabling sexual predators which allows them to continue to violate and destroy countless lives, Pope Francis must swiftly remove these individuals. Pope Francis must remove Bishop Scharfenberger and Cardinal Dolan from being able to continue to allow these sexual assaults, rapes, cover-ups - these atrocities to continue in New York State.

Pope Francis, also has the responsibility to speak out against any governmental leader involved in such heinous sex cover-up crimes and he has an even greater responsibility when these leaders proclaim to be Catholic. Governor Andrew Cuomo is a Catholic and Pope Francis must demand that he immediately resigns for being involved for over a decade in covering-up sex crimes and protecting countless sexual predators. It is time that true spiritual leaders stand out in the light and take all of their responsibilities seriously, the sexual harassment, sexual abuse, cover-ups and people enabling sexual predators is on the international stage.

Michael Carey’s hope and appeal to Pope Francs personally is for him to do what is right and just for the defenseless now and for the Pope to come along side to help champion the next greatest Civil Rights Movement to finally ensure the protection, safe care and services and equal rights for people with disabilities.

I would encourage everyone to pray for Pope Francis and the Catholic Church as a whole that great changes can come forth for the Church and Society. I would also encourage everyone to pray for Cardinal Dolan, Bishop Scharfenberger and Governor Cuomo, although they must be removed from authority, they like the Apostle Paul can have an encounter with Jesus, receive His mercy and forgiveness like anyone can and they can become some of the greatest witnesses for Christ the world has ever seen. Justice demands their resignations from their positions of power and authority though now.
