The Nightmare in Belgium...



Most of the abuse happened during the 1960s and 1970s...

BRUSSELS (AP) - Hundreds of sex abuse victims have come forward in Belgium with harrowing accounts of molestation by Catholic clergy that reportedly led to at least 13 suicides and affected children as young as two, a special commission said Friday.
.
Professor Peter Adriaenssens, chairman of the commission, said the abuse in Belgium may have been even more rampant than the 200-page report suggests.
.
Adriaenssens, a child psychiatrist who has worked with trauma victims for 23 years, said nothing had prepared him for the stories of abuse that blighted the lives of victims.
.
"We don't just talk about touching. We are talking about oral and anal abuse, forced masturbation and mutual masturbation. We talk about people who have gone through serious abuse," Adriaenssens said. - myway news

What happened?
.
I have no idea, but for decades there have been published accounts suggesting the Communists successfully infiltrated the Church, planting agents in seminaries who went on for ordination.  How likely is it that this problem of sexual abuse is some how associated with such corruption intended to undermine the Church and destroy the faith?  Nothing destroys a person so deeply as sexual abuse - it is truly diabolic.
.
Albert Vassert, a former member of the French Communist Party revealed in 1955 that Moscow had issued a 1936 order that carefully selected members of the Communist youth enter seminaries, and after training, receive ordination as priests. Some of these were to infiltrate religious orders, particularly the Dominicans. (In his essay "Satan at Work", Deitrich Von Hildebrand reported that the French Dominicans had become so Communistic in their 'evangelization' that in 1953, the Order barely escaped dissolution by the order of Pope Pius XII).

  1. I don't know, I suppose some abusers could have been communists. But in order to make the claim that this was a major factor in the abuse scandals, someone has to present some hard evidence. Which I am not seeing.
    Does sexual abuse in the Belgian and French Church have a different cause than in America and Ireland?
    I have not read any theories that the troubles in America were because of communist infiltration; with as much investigation as has gone on surely that would have come to light at some point.
    Human depravity with inept and/or complicit supervision seems to pretty much be the common thread.

  2. Melody - I think those who believe there was an infiltration believe it took place in the U.S. as well - I just threw the idea out there because I can't comprehend or begin to imagine why or how something like this was so prevelant amongst the clergy - beginning even before the reforms of the Council were implemented.

    I just don't get it.

    hello fellow cyber-friends, Terry Nelson, these are two sources describing the Communist-infiltration of the Roman Catholic Church:, book "AA-1025, The Memoirs of an Anti-Apostle", by Marie Carre, published by Tan Books and Publishers, and "School of Darkness", by Bella Dodd. There's also a book from a Priest from Staten Island, NY, but I'm sorry that the title escapes me, but it is also describing the communist infiltration of the catholic church, describing its beginnings in Moscow, year 1933. Hope this helps to explain the MACABRE and horrific abuse of children, adolescents,but what can one expect, if as it says in one of the Gospels, "The true Light came into the world but men preferred the darkness",?..If God is love, then I believe love and prayer are the answer!...but we must also never lose some sense of humour in life, in my opinion..."Jesus, Maria and Joseph, I love you, save souls,save the consecrated!, amen...thanks for "hearing-me-out"..,RosaMaria...ciao for now!

  4. Wilhelm Reich...that's the guy...his influence upon all kinds of everything made this horrific scandal what it is.
    If you don't know who he is, google him.
    E. Michael Jones has done some monumental work showing how this one man in his hatred of the Church, the sexual purity of youth AND the clergy, mind you, has made such a dreadful impact that is now showing its ugly head: http://www.culturewars.com/

    Communists? Maybe, probably.
    W. Reich? Absolutely.
    His theory: teach the young how to masturbate so that they will be automatically "taken" from the spiritual/mystical...debauch the clergy so that they will either abuse the young or create a "fifth" column within the Church, denying Her teachings on human sexuality...sound crazy?
    Maybe. Maybe not.
