Whistleblowing Priests Killed to Prevent Exposing Pedophilia Problem in the Catholic Church?The code of silence in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) that has protected pedophile priests for decades is being breeched by a few courageous whistleblowing Catholic clergy. These brave men have become willing to speak the truth at great risk to their careers and even to their very lives. Evidence is very strong that the highest levels in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church were fully aware of the molestation problem of children and even the rape of male seminary students, but did little if anything to stop it, thus condoning the crimes. State level criminal investigations are now underway in 15 or more US states could lead to massive prosecution of pedophile priests. The federal government announced last week that it has launched an investigation into criminal wrongdoing in 6 Roman Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania plus an investigation in Buffalo, New York. Two Eastern Orthodox dioceses in Pennsylvania are also under investigation. A federal grand jury will be formed, and it will have the power to bring indictments against these church organizations under federal racketeering laws for interstate conspiracy to cover up and to commit crimes. A guilty verdict under RICO laws could lead to the forfeiture of all assets of the RCC in the United States including church properties.
