What I Think

Associated Press reported this story October 29, 2010: Here's What I Think! I await your comments:

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — William Lynch's life spiraled out of control in the 35 years since he alleges he and his brother were molested by a Jesuit priest: He struggled with depression, had nightmares and tried to kill himself twice.

"Many times I thought of driving down to LA and confronting Father Jerry. I wanted to exorcise all of the rage and anger and bitterness he put into me," Lynch told the newspaper. "You can't put into words what this guy did to me. He stole my innocence and destroyed my life."

Most of Lindner's family severed contact with him years ago after discovering he had molested his nieces and nephews when they were as young as 3.

Here's the question of the day: "Why was Lynch arrested? Why did he have to post bail? Why haven't the charges been dropped by now? Are the Jesuits not a forgiving order of cover-up priests?

I understand Lynder. I was a victinm at Loyola, (Montreal, Quebec),by a Jesuit priest, in the 60's. The order knew about his problem, allowed him to continue teaching 12 yr. olds, and when the heat was turned up they moved him to Northern Canada, where he taught at an Indian school, molested approximately 150 children there.

The Indian children filed a class action suit, in Toronto, Ontario, won their case and the priest simply passed away while the rest of us find ourselves in the same boat as William Lynch.

Did I mention the priest was George Epoch, S.J.?

Is there any justice?

My solution:

All pedophiles, go to prison for the rest of their life! They are are incurable. They MUST be confined in a super-max, institution, (prison)confined to their cells 24/7, no contact with anyone, except their spiritual advisor or the guard.

After all like Linder, according to his superior, the Rev. John McGarry, the provincial, "Lindner has recovered and resumed his work at the retirement home, where he helps care for 75 infirm priests. He is not allowed to leave the home unsupervised," he said.

McGarry continued, "As you can imagine it's very emotionally distressing to go through something like this. He hasn't spoken a lot about it," McGarry said. "He's living a quiet life of prayer and service within our community."

Exactly, all pedophiles should live out the rest of their lives in "a quiet life of prayer and service within our community."

What better way to prepare for eternal life?

The Jesuits should become advocates for Lynch, have him set free, hdemand al;l charges be dropped and expunged from his arrest record, apologize to him, again, and restrict Linder from ever setting foot outside the retirement home again.

Set Lynch free!

Have the Jesuits forgetten the teachings of Matthew and Luke, in their Bible: Matthew: 18-6: "On the other hand it would be better for anyone who leads astray one of these little ones who believe in m,e, to be drowned by a millstone around his neck, in the depths of the sea." And, Luke: 17-1 & 2: He said to His disciples: 1. "Scandals will inevitiably arise, but woe to him through whom they come. 2. He would be better off thrown into the sea with a millstone around his neck than giving scandal to one of these little ones."

Being the compassionat person I am, let'ds not implemnent the death penalty...that is too good for these extremely demented individuals. Let's give them plenty of time to pray and ask forgiveness.

That's What I Think!
