EMAIL TO BISHOP PHILIP EGAN, PORTSMOUTH.
Today, I received another complaint from a young man about the sexual behaviour of your priest, JOHN PAUL LYTTLE.
This young man went to the presbytery in Fareham, where you have placed John Paul.
He was given alcohol and cocaine in a room with a crucifix on the wall.
Later, John Paul attempted to sexually seduce him.
The young man, a heterosexual with a long-term girlfriend, refused the sexual advances and immediately left the presbytery.
He was very shocked and shaken and told John. Paul so by telephone.
As bishop, why are you tolerating these situations by which John Paul Lyttle is using church property to perpetrate the crimes of attempted sexual assault?
Surely this makes you an accomplice before, during, and after the act?
You are supplying him with the premises and an income with which to carry out these acts.
Surely this leaves you and the diocese open to litigation by his victims?
John Paul is drinking daily in pubs from 1.30 pm in the afternoon to late at night.
He is also taking Class A drugs like cocaine.
If he is an alcohol or drug addict he obviously needs a serious and immediate intervention and rehabilitation and treatment.
As his “Father in Christ,” this too is your urgent duty.
If these matters continue, it will lead to a tragedy or a fatality either for John Paul or someone in his company.
Can I beg you to act most swiftly on this matter and help John Paul and protect future victims.
