Shame On The Catholic Church

My friend Gustavo Arellano over at the OC Weekly has just penned a sobering article about a priest named Eleuterio Ramos. Click here to read the excellent story. Father Ramos was a priest in the OC Diocese back in the 70s and 80s. The parishes where Father Ramos served were literally pedophile/rape zones for young boys. It's absolutely sick. What's even worse is the church's stonewalling/complicity in many other similiar cases around the county and state.

I graduated from Mater Dei High School back in 1988. One of my fellow classmates was Joelle Casteix. She got molested/raped by the former band director there. She and others recently settled with the OC Diocese for about 100 million dollars. All I know is that the church better start rooting out these kind of people.
