Father Riccardo Seppia, a 51-year-old parish priest in the village of
Sastri Ponente, near Genoa, was arrested last Friday, May 13, on
pedophilia and drug charges. Investigators say that in tapped
mobile-phone conversations, Seppia asked a Moroccan drug dealer to
arrange sexual encounters with young and vulnerable boys. “I do not want
16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for
needy boys who have family issues,” he allegedly said. Genoa Archbishop
Angelo Bagnasco, who is the head of the Italian Bishops Conference, had
been working with Benedict to establish a tough new worldwide policy,
released this week, on how bishops should handle accusations of priestly
Genoa, 16 Oct (AKI) - Prosecutors in Italy's northern port city of Genoa
were Monday due to question local priest Riccardo Seppia, who the
Catholic church suspended over the weekend after his arrest on
paedophilia and drugs charges.
Fifty-year-old Seppia was detained for “immoral behaviour with a minor
and the use of of stupefying substances”, according to a Genoa curia
Investigators opted to arrest Seppia on Saturday following surveillance
of his mobile phone and obscene text messages allegedly sent to teenage
boys, including a 15-year-old with whom he had arranged a sexual
encounter later that day. Investigators believe Seppia abused "at least
five" male youngsters in his parish.
"You're right. He's gorgeous and I'm going to f*** him," read one of
Seppia's text messages, according to investigators cited by Italian
daily La Repubblica. They had been tapping his phone for months as part
of a Milan-based drug trafficking probe from which it appears Seppia may
have been a regular client of one of the cocaine traffickers under
Investigators did not state who the recipient of the text message was
but a 40-year-old former trainee priest is being investigated in the
probe for procuring boys for Seppia and other clients.
In tapped mobile phone conversations investigators say they heard Seppia
propositioning another under-age youth in exchange for 50 euros and
offering an 18-year-old cocaine.
Seppia's habit of frequenting local gay bars late in the evening gained
him the nickname "the priest of the night" according to parishioners.
One was cited by La Repubblica as saying she had sent her children to
another parish for catechism classes when Seppia arrived at the church.
So there are sinners in the Church. Even in high places. Are you saying that there is no sin in your man-made denomination. That you yourself are holy and spotless?ReplyDelete
You do realize that this has been going on since the Fall of man, right? Moses sinned. So did David. So did the kings and priests of Israel.
You have invited me over to chat with you, but honestly, I wonder if you will listen if I talk with you. You have nothing but a pack of rotten lies posted here (the same Chick tracts I used to devour when I was a Fundamentalist). I know these lies because I used to believe them.
Nonetheless, if you wish I will tell you why I left the man-made religion of Protestantism and joined the Church. Might be amusing to you. Who knows?
I didnt think you made it here. Thanks for stoping in. I want to here your storyDelete
The reason that there is a Masonic symbol on the Catholic building in the upper right corner is because the Church has been infiltrated by the enemies of Christ, specifically the Masons and Communists. Bella Dodd testified to this in 1954 (I believe that is the right date). She told a congressional committee that as a former Communist, she was aware of over 1,000 dedicated Communist operatives who had gone to seminary, been ordained, and were in the Church with the intent of destroying it within.ReplyDelete
Why didn't they infiltrate Protestantism? Because Protestantism is not the faith that Christ Jesus left with the Apostles. It is the truth and Protestantism is heresy. You don't attack your own who are doing your work for you.
I have no doubt that many of these Communist agents are in high places in the Church. I have no doubt that they have never had faith in Christ and just speak the words. And I have no doubt that they are behind the molestation which has brought rivers of shame upon the Church and those good Catholics who keep God's Word.
Why dont the people say something about the mason symbols? Write your local bishop and alert him to the symbols. I believe its part of the witchcrft the CC uses in controling its flock. Subliminal advertizing if you will. But you say its masons work. I think it is and masons are in good standing in the church. Johnpaul was a masonDelete
When the whole Church had gone a 'whoring after idols and were sacrificing their children to the demon "god" Molech, there were still 7,000 in Israel who had not bowed their knees to that false demon "god." They did not leave the Church to start another "church." They cried out to God for deliverance. And they remained faithful to the Temple worship that God had ordained for them.ReplyDelete
If the entire world was filled with priests who are homosexual, I would still be Catholic. Yet despite your hateful and lying pictures, only about 4% of priests were convicted of sexual impropriety. You give the impression that it is all priests.
That is bearing false witness. Don't you remember that there is a commandment of God against doing such a thing? You should fear that you are attacking Christ's Church with such lies about His people.
The catholic priests cause my brothers to err. They promote bowing to idols and praying to dead people that cant hear you, like Mary and all the rest. It would be better if they were just pedophiles. But the bar peoples way into heaven and they themselfs will not enter.Delete
You apparently don't know what an idol is either, do you?ReplyDelete
An idol is a representation of the invisible and unknowable God. That is forbidden. Yet God Himself commanded the Israelites to make graven images - cherubim for the Ark of the Covenant.
We do not worship the icons and statues (I prefer icons). They are there to remind us of those saints who have, like St. Paul, fought the good fight of faith and are in heaven now. We ask them to intercede with God for us. We do not worship them, and in fact, that is FORBIDDEN by the Catholic Catechism.
Sir, you are very much like me fourteen years ago. I thought I knew everything about the Catholic faith (after all, my Chick tracts were so educational) and I was noisy about it, too. I even used to go to Catholic parishes during Mass and put tracts in the windshields of the cars telling them they needed to get saved.
But I was a complete ignoramous. I didn't know ANYTHING about the Catholic faith, and all I had to go upon was the bad Catholics (like those in the pictures you so eagerly display) who were giving a false impression to me of what being a Catholic means.
I can defend and prove the Catholic faith from Scripture. Whether you will listen is a whole 'nother story.
I will see what evidence you have. But i dont believe slogans, "the church that christ founded." How could you go from a walk with the invisible Lord to a church full of the visible, and costume holymen?Delete
