From Complicit Clergy

If you’re driving through Jefferson Parish, you’ll spot beautiful, abandoned buildings that sit on Barataria Boulevard.

Although the striking exterior of the buildings can quickly catch your eye, it’s the stories that happened inside that are haunting.

“As a child, I wanted to take my own life,” said Larry Polizzi.

A new lawsuit filed on behalf of Larry Polizzi, who lived at Hope Haven in his teens, alleges the horrific sexual abuse he endured while living there back in the 1970s.

“Instead of taking care of him, they abused him, pretty systemically and repeatedly,” said Jessica Arbour, an attorney for Polizzi.

The lawsuit names Father Sean Leo Rooney and Sister Alvin Marie Hagan as the perpetrators of the abuse.

“I’ve been ashamed of myself for many years and I feel, for what they done to me, from the time I was 14, they need to be held accountable,” said Polizzi.

The lawsuit itself goes after the orders this priest and nun belonged to the Salesians of Don Bosco and School Sisters of Notre Dame.


This is far from being the only case where priests and nuns colluded together to abuse children.

There have been many cases where nuns were the ones to procure children for priests.

Nuns in Belfast performed this function to FATHER BRENDAN SMYTH.

Nuns would literally fling children into the room where Smyth was and then guard the door.


I have personally talked to a victim of priest and nun collusion in County Down.

A certain religious order priest would sit in a room at a girls retreat and the nun would fling the girls into the room.

The priest would then rape each girl with a largish crucifix.

On the way out, the nun would say to the girls: “Was that nice?”

What was even more strange about this is the fact that this priest and nun were from religious orders set up by St John Bosco for the care and protection of children.



The rape of a child is extremely evil.

The rape of a child with a crucifix is Satanic.

The rape of a child by the collusion of a priest and a nun leaves one speechless!
