When I was five years old, the bishop stood over me and said, "Stop babbling about what Father Horne did to you." I kept the secret for 40 years. Today, I babble. - ke

Imagine Truth of Pedo-Priests Coming Out in Spite of Church PR

I am going through all the notes from 4 years of doing City of Angels Blog and finding gems, many will be posts in 2012.

In process I'm also going through the blog from the beginning in January 2007.

Just found this in April 27, 2008 post at City of Angels 4 2008.

IMAGINE: The true story comes out, including whatever the church is covering up so desperately that they allowed these pedophiles to get at us. Imagine the truth of the total damage to the victims comes out, in spite of the power of PR, pseudo-advocacy, and media control, whatever tactics the church has used, from the start, to shoot down the crime victims and keep the true felonies performed on children from ever being public.

Finding Gems

In my notes from last five years are dozens of posts that never got written, need only a few tweaks before publishing. So when City of Angels Blog returns full speed in January 2012, we will publish those gems from 2007 to 2011.

Catch 22 for Church, early insight at City of Angels

Just found this in a January 2008 post at City of Angels 4

Don’t sue us, says the Church, we'll pay out of court. Then only data on pedophile priests that Church counts is from lawsuits.

By Kay Ebeling, Monday, January 14, 2008

Only an omnipotent organization operating outside the law like the Catholic Church can carry out a Catch 22 like this: Archdioceses offer victims help with therapy as a way to "heal" without having to file lawsuits. Then when it cooks up its statistics on pedophile priests, the Church only counts successful lawsuits.

Catch 22.

The Jan 2008 post is here and references: "For example Sr. McNiff's chart in the LA Times, see January 8 post."

Reading my own stuff, trying to catch up with myself...

If I am a Catholic basher, what are bishops who protect pedophile priests?


From Wisconsin State Journal today quoting James Carroll who was ordained a Catholic priest in 1969, served s a chaplain at Boston University, then gave up the priesthood five years later. He was a self-described "radical priest"

"If I'm a Catholic basher, what are the bishops who have been protecting pedophile priests?"

Ordaining Female Priests OK with Vatican

Since they say ordaining women is "on a par with clergy abuse," the Catholic Church must think female priests are okay, as the Vatican has barely responded one way or the other about its pedophile priests. -ke

From Huffington Post story linked below:

"Last year, the Vatican made ordaining a woman one of the gravest canonical crimes, on par with sexually abusing a child."

They call both priest pedophilia and ordaining women "grave canonical crimes" but then let pedophile priests remain in the clergy. In fact, a Catholic priest has the power to forgive all crimes, so any criminal activity involving a priest is forgivable, so go ahead and start ordaining women...

Circular Reasoning
from Kay Ebeling

RE Pic at left:

From Lance's Blog:

"Designer Camelle Ilona Daley has a line of stylish clerical clothing. The picture at left of a model wearing female priestly garments provoked some controversy on Facebook. Some were offended, I saw one comment that said, "these are the END TIMES..." Some objected to female priests; others objected not to a female priest, but to this particular picture, which seems to them to be suggestive."

See Clergy Collection, fashions for the female priest, at House of Filona

Read story that sparked this blog entry at Huffington Post:

Roy Bourgeois, U.S. Priest Who Backs Women's Ordination, Detained
VATICAN CITY — A U.S. Catholic priest who supports ordination for women was detained briefly by police Monday after marching to the Vatican to press the Holy See to lift its ban on women priests. The Rev. Roy Bourgeois and about a dozen supporters had marched down the main boulevard leading to the Vatican holding a banner "Ordain Catholic Women" and chanting outside St. Peter's Square ...

Eddie Murphy: Kill My Landlord from old SNL tape

I was having SO MUCH trouble with a slumlord landlord that this performance by Eddie Murphy would run through my brain, when I started doing City of Angels Blog in 2007. Back then I could only publish the "lyrics" but today I found this video on YouTube, Eddie Murphy as Tyrone performing his poem "Images" from SNL, if anyone knows the year this performance took place, please let me know:

Kay Ebeling Email: cityofangelslady@yahoo.com reverberating...

Here are the "lyrics"

Images by Tyrone Greene
Performed by Eddie Murphy (date unknown)

Dark and lonely on a summer's night
Kill my landlord
Kill my landlord
Watchdog barking
Do he bite?
Kill my landlord
Kill my landlord
Slip in his window
Break his neck
Then his house
I start to wreck
Got no reason
What the heck
Kill my Landlord
Kill my landlord
my l a n d l o r d

Michael Baker, Child-Molesting Priest, Released From Custody

They got rid of me, so now I'm not there to cover this:

Michael Baker, Child Molesting Priest, Released From Custody

The former priest, now 63, pleaded guilty in 2007 to 12 felony counts of oral copulation with a person under the age of 18 for abusing two boys he met at parishes in Pico Rivera and Los Angeles. Baker did not plead guilty to any sexually violent offenses when he entered his pleas four years ago and therefore cannot qualify as a sexually violent predator under state law.

Not only do the bad guys win, thanks to a court system that's broken, but bloggers like me get sabotaged so we can no longer speak.

Makes you want to ... ?

I tried so hard and got so far

But in the end it doesn't really matter

That's how it all ended.

Lies Lies Lies, cries out the Bishop...

(No, Mr. Church Attorney, I'm not blogging. But now and then I see something in the news I want to share, I won't send it out to my lists, or promote it, and that's the damage you are trying to prevent, so don't get riled up over this post...)

You may agree with what the British bishop says in the link below, but it's too late, the Catholic messenger is no longer credible:

Catholic Bishop regales USA government re 9/11 "Lies Lies Lies"

Also here is a another hypocritical tidbit from recent news stories:

Archbishop Timothy Dolan's gay bashing letter to President Obama

re the "unchangeable meaning and nature of marriage as a communion of the sexes."

As my friend who emailed me the latter included:

Matthew 7:3
And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?

Matthew 7:4
Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye.

Matthew 7:5
Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Luke 6:41
And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye?

Luke 6:42
Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.


But, hey, those Scriptures are in the Bible, man, bishops and cardinals are already educated so why read the Bible, especially when they memorized it in college... Also, Catholic Church leaders have more important things to do, such as preparing for depositions, and meeting with private investigators they've hired to find ways to destroy pedophile priest victims. . .

Back into hiding I go.
