DAY 2 – JPL THE TIME LINE.

JOHN PAUL LYTTLE originated on the Isle of Wight / Guernsey but had Belfast family.

For whatever reason, he moves to Belfast to live with his granny in Whitehouse, Belfast.

He entered the seminary in Belfast to be a priest for Down and Connor diocese.

In the Belfast, he went out at night to the gay cruising areas to get “action.” This was well known to his fellow seminarians.

At some stage, the PP of Whitehouse – the convicted Fr James Donaghy – where his granny lived got him drunk and ttued to sexually seduce him.

He says he repelled Donaghy and thought it was terrible that Donaghy got him drunk and tried to seduce him.

Soon afterwards, JPL left Belfast and ended up in Oscott Seminary. He also appears to have time in Wonersh and Allen Hall ?

At this time, he had been accepted by Bishop Crispin Hollis as a seminarian for Portsmouth.

In Oscott, he ended up in the bed of the seminary rector.

Hollis dismissed him from Oscott. The seminary rector was “reassigned”.

He spent some time with the Capuchins in Donegal and Africa and with another religious order.

He reappeared in London in the home of Fr Ray Lyons, who had been suspended and reinstated and was acting as a school chaplain.

One evening, he came home with some young men from a gay bar. They were drinking on the upper floor of the house, and JPL fell from the window and suffered life-threatening head injuries.

The three young men in his company were not charged with any crime.

JPL remained seriously ill in the hospital, and it was feared he would not survive.

As it happened, he had a miraculous or semi miraculous recovery, surprising all the medics.

He next appeared as a volunteer minister to the marginalised on the Portsmout diocesan website and wearing a clerical collar.

Then, out of the blue, Bishop Egan ordained him hurriedly and on a week day.

We next see him turning up in a Reading Parish where he was assistant priest and hospital chaplain.

It was in Reading that he invited a young policeman to the parochial house for dinner. The PP was away for the night. He plied the young man with alcohol and tried to seduce him. He had told the young man that he watched gay porn, was always horny and masturbated a lot.

The young man fled the house and reported the incident to the police and Bishop Egan.

The young man remains completely dissatisfied with Egan and the diocesan safeguarding.

JPL was on the move again.

He was saying that he was conducting research for Bishop Egan.

Eventually, Egan arranges for him to live in a church house in Fareham. Portsmouth in the parish controlled by Canon John Cooke.

COOKE

JPL is drinking in a local pub from 1.30 pm daily.

In the pub, he meets a young part-time barman and his long-term girlfriend.

JPL invites the young barman for dinner and drinks.

After dinner, a gramme of cocaine is produced, and JPL and the barman share it in a room with a prominent crucifix on the wall.

JPL then tries to seduce the barman. The barman refused his advances and leaves very hurt and angry.

The barman contacts me, and I inform Egan, safeguarding abd Canon Cooke in Fareham.

QUESTIONS ARISING

1. Why has Bishop Egan continued to let JPL live in diocesan properties that he uses for drinking, drug taking, and attempted sexual assault?

2. Has Egan referred JPL for detox and rehabilitation?

3. Does Egan not realise he made a massive mistake in ordaining JPL and that he should be laicised?

4. Is Egan or other clerics compromised by JPL either by being involved with him or JPL having the dirt on them?

5. Does Egan and Cooke not realise that if JPL harms anyone after they have been made aware of everything, they leave themselves open to serious litigation?

6. Is Egan and others going to allow this to continue until someone, either JPL or another, is seriously injured or killed?

FROM LAST NIGHT

Most MIA and c/o are being assisted by bishops/dioceses, it would seem. This is mostly because of the medieval feudal relationship that exists between bishop and priest, and enshrined in Canon Law. It is exacerbated by the personal economy of priests who are almost totally reliant on the bishop / diocese / parish which means that a priest rarely has any financial autonomy / independence. The result is that priests who are out of ministry for a reason which makes them MIA or c/o or suspended will be financially and materially dependent on the bishop / diocese for many years. In any other walk of life, this would not be the case. Once a matter is resolved, the person concerned is let go and does not remain with connections to the institution / organisation. The arrangement between bishop / diocese and MIA and c/o is not healthy for either party. It perpetuates a dependence on the part of priests and continues almost indefinitely the liability of the bishop / diocese. Even when a priest has been imprisoned and laicised, you will find that continuing support is given to that priest by a bishop / diocese. This is crazy, but is camouflaged by a narrative of Christian charity. My view is that, firstly, the personal economy of priests should be made clearer and more concrete, for example by the payment of salary and pension rights, then they would have an autonomy that would enable them to move on. Secondly, for the sake of all concerned in these matters cutting the ties should be brought about as soon as possible so that there is clarity in the relationship, or it is clear that the relationship has come to an end. Of course, for a bishop and diocese this would be expensive and it would loosen the ties between bishop and priest and give priests more independence and autonomy, which is not something a bishop used to those things and to control of his priests would want. In essence, it would mean that a priest who is MIA or c/o and is inactive in ministry, should be let go, and their upkeep moved to the arena where millions of other citizens exist already, accessing social housing, State pension (where applicable), Universal Credit etc, and even the labour of their own hands where they are healthy enough to do so. Life would not be luxurious, but they would be independent, and their situation would be clear. It helps nobody that things are kept opaque and vague, with no consistency, and with nobody really knowing what is happening to a priest who is ministerially inactive because of being MIA or c/o. Harsh, I know, but necessary for the sake of all.

I can’t disagree with the infantilisation of people in this fairy tale world, but I note that you mainly phrase the problem as being between the bishop and the diocese and fail to pay attention to the duty of both to the greater society. No surprises there.
Therefore I disagree with your solution and in fact think that when a cleric is convicted of sexual assault, rape, etc, the church should be forced to support him for the rest of his life, and pay any costs of incarceration and therapy for both the cleric and his victims.
That would finally stop the church ordaining kiddy fiddlers, flashers, public wankers and so on.

Like

…and do banks or companies do similar for people who are convicted or fraud; or schools for teachers who are sacked for inappropriate behaviour or bus companies when one of their drivers runs somebody over ? Do tell ! What needs to happen is for the Church to cut ties with those who are no longer ministerially active, imprisoned, MIA, c/o, whatever. Why should we keep paying for people for decades who could look after themselves, or work, or access public help ? Again, do tell…..

I love the way the cathbots misuse health jargon to try to make priests out to be without responsibility.
For the record the law in England is that you assume anyone above the age of sixteen DOES have mental capacity unless there is some reason to think they don’t and then their capacity gets assessed. It is spectacularly unlikely that someone lacking in mental capacity would get as far as ordination or be working on research for the bishop.
Incidentally claiming that you’re not responsible for your own actions is never a good sign because the people who genuinely aren’t responsible for their own actions don’t tend to say that.

Over the decades, the Roman Catholic Church has deployed corporal punishment in schools and institutions, sexual and all other manner of abuse wherever the opportunity has arisen.

English dioceses used Pope Benedict’s fast-track administrative procedure to get priests like McGuigan off their books. So, therefore, if any misconduct comes to light in those unsupervised 20 years in which he was still a priest, I am sure the church will have no problem digging deep to compensate potential victims.

MITCHELL GARABEDIAN: POPE BENEDICT’S LEGACY
Radio New Zealand
[Wellington, New Zealand]
January 14, 2023
By Mitchell Garabedian
“A world-renowned lawyer – who’s represented countless victims of sexual abuse within the church – and was famously depicted in the 2015 film Spotlight – believes Pope Benedict XVI leaves behind a tarnished legacy.
Child abuse in the Catholic church is as bad now as ever, despite the positive impact of bringing such cases to light, Mitchell Garabedian says.
Pope Benedict’s legacy is “disappointing,” Garabedian says.”
“Pope Benedict toed the company line, he practised the cover up when he was Archbishop in Munich, or he was leading the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith which investigated sexual abuse claims.
“As Pope he was more interested in protecting the institution and more interested in doctrine than protecting children and trying to help victims to
heal and get on with their lives.” “The amount of clergy sexual abuse is so deep and wide that it’s never going to go away. We just have to be able to fight it and to limit it and keep the public aware of its evil.”

Compared to the other slime balls and randy feckers I met there, he wasn’t the worst. At least he didn’t want to share a shower, a bed or a back door with you.
