A priest along with the former parish administrator of a Catholic church in Florida funneled nearly $1.5 million in parishioners’ donations into a secret bank account for personal use, Vero Beach police said Tuesday.
The former pastor of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Vero Beach, Father Richard “Dick” Murphy, died on March 22, 2020, at the age of 80. The administrator, 69-year-old Deborah True, “turned herself in” to the Indian River County Jail in Vero Beach on Sept. 19, police said in a statement posted on the Vero Beach Police Department’s Facebook page.
The Diocese of Palm Beach contacted the police department in December 2021, raising concerns about a fraudulent bank account and the misappropriation of church funds that took place over the course of five years.
GERMAN BISHOP REFUSES TO RESIGN AFTER ABUSE COVER UP.
The vice president of the German bishops’ conference said Thursday he had thought about resigning after the publication of a report claiming he mishandled abuse cases, but that he had ultimately decided against it.
A report published Sept. 20 said Bishop Franz-Josef Bode mishandled abuse cases in the Diocese of Osnabrück, in northwestern Germany, which he has led since 1995.
The 600-page interim report is titled “Sexual violence against minors and vulnerable by clergy in the Diocese of Osnabrück since 1945.”
The report said in the first decades of his term, Bishop Bode “repeatedly” kept people accused of abuse in office or appointed them to other positions, including management tasks in youth pastoral care.
The same problems keep coming and returning in the RCC.
– Sexual misbehaviour by priests.
– Cover up by bishops.
– Money going missing in parishes, dioceses and religious orders.
SEX – MONEY – POWER.
The RCC is one of the oldest and most corrupt institutions in world history.
They seem to have developed an uncanny ability to FOOL ALL OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME.
But that has been and is changing in our times.
In my lifetime I have come to see right through them.
Many are joining me now.
RC bishops and priests are snake oil salesmen.
Only the brainwashed follow them.
