Scalfari: Pope Francis Denies Bodily Resurrection of Jesus



Scalfari: Pope Francis Denies Bodily Resurrection of Jesus


by Jules Gomes

Italian journalist doubles down on Francis' alleged denial of Jesus' divinity

ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - In a new series of troubling revelations, Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari has quoted Pope Francis as denying the bodily resurrection of Jesus in stating that the crucified Christ emerged from the tomb as a spirit rather than as a body.

In a front-page article in Tuesday's La Repubblica, Scalfari expands on his earlier quote from Pope Francis, where the Holy Father is interpreted as rejecting the divinity of Jesus while on earth, and dovetails that statement with Francis' alleged denial of Christ's bodily resurrection.

According to Scalfari, Pope Francis said, "He [Jesus] was a man until he was put in the sepulchre by the women who restored his corpse. That night in the sepulchre the man disappeared and from that cave came out in the form of a spirit that met the women and the Apostles, still preserving the shadow of the person, and then definitively disappeared."

...........

It is in this context Scalfari elaborates on his meeting with Pope Francis.

"I was personally responsible for speaking with Pope Francis in our first meeting four years ago, and His Holiness, who is very prepared in these matters," told him that "God, who is Unique to all the people of the whole world, decided on his incarnation to help humanity to believe in the hereafter and to behave appropriately in thinking and acting."

Then, Pope Francis reportedly told Scalfari: "That is, he is a man: true and total, and he shows it in the last week spent in Jerusalem, at the last supper, in the Garden of Gethsemane where he prays to God to exempt him from being crucified, but God does not answer him."

"Also on the cross he is a man who turns to what he calls the Father and almost reproaches him by saying: 'Father, Father, you have abandoned me,'" Francis reportedly said.

Italian social media has erupted in shock at the new revelations.

President Trump Presents the Presidential Citizens Medal to Colonel Richard Rescorla






President Trump Presents the Presidential Citizens Medal to Colonel Richard Rescorla

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Please. Thank you. Great to be with you. And thank you all for being here.

Today, it’s my honor to present an award reserved for those who perform exemplary deeds or acts of service for this great nation and its citizens — the Presidential Citizens Medal. And it’s a big deal. (Applause.)

This evening, we come together to pay tribute to a fallen hero who devoted his life to defending freedom and who made the supreme sacrifice to save others on September 11, 2001: Colonel Richard Rescorla. Richard was a great gentleman. He’s looking down proudly on this wonderful family. And congratulations, this is a big — this is a big evening. And it’s great to have you at the White House because there’s no place like it. Thank you. (Applause.)

We are profoundly grateful to have with us Rick’s beloved family. Please join me in welcoming his wife, Susan. Thank you, Susan. (Applause.) His son Trevor, and his daughter Kim. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.) And to each of you — we cannot fathom all that you have endured, but today we express the gratitude of 329 million Americans. It’s a lot of people.

Rick was born in Cornwall, England, in 1939. As a boy, he met American soldiers preparing for the Normandy landing and dreamed of one day serving in uniform. It’s a big thing for Rick.

Soon, he had his chance and joined the British Army. He spent six years fighting communism, then flew to America, found the recruiting center in Times Square, and joined the United States Army. He wanted to continue his fight against communists.

In 1965, Rick deployed to Vietnam. As a platoon leader, he fought in the battle of the Ia Drang Valley. Facing overwhelming odds, Rick helped to beat back hundreds and hundreds of enemy soldiers. His Commander, General Hal Moore — who was a great general, by the way — said Rick was, quote, “an extraordinary battlefield leader; quite simply the best platoon leader of infantry I have ever known in two wars.” He saw plenty of action.

For his actions in Vietnam, Rick received two Bronze Stars, a Silver Star, the Purple Heart, and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry.

We are thankful to be joined today by 60 soldiers who fought in Vietnam with Rick, including six veterans who just returned from Ia Drang on a trip to honor him. Would you all please stand? It’s great to have you. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you. Whoa. (Applause.) That’s pretty good. That’s pretty good.

And you’re all looking good. You’re looking good. That’s great. That’s really fan- — do I see a Medal of Honor winner in our midst? Oh, that’s great. Stand up please. (Applause.) And I know them all. Congratulations. Thank you for being here. Very nice. You’ve earned our everlasting gratitude.

When Rick came home to America, he received a bachelor’s of — a master’s degree in literature, and earned a law degree in Oklahoma. He taught at the University of South Carolina, but soon realized he would not be happy until he was protecting others. That’s what he liked to do — protect others. He was born to serve.

In 1984, Rick became director of security for Dean Witter Securities, which soon moved to the World Trade Center’s South Tower.

Rick was there in 1993, when terrorists detonated a 1,200-pound bomb in the World Trade Center’s garage. In the midst of danger and confusion, Rick climbed on top of a desk, took command, and directed the evacuation. He helped a lot of people. That was a rough time.

After that bombing, Rick analyzed threats, outlined potential attacks, and told building officials that the next assault on the Towers could come from the air. He understood what was happening. He did everything he could to prepare for the worst.

In 1997, Dean Witter merged with Morgan Stanley, and Rick was promoted to Executive Vice President of Security for the largest tenant in the entire World Trade Center. In 1998, he met Susan and they married within a year. That was good. Right? (Laughter.) That was good. They were both happy. They were both very happy. That was a good move for both.

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Rick got up early, put on his blue, pinstriped suit, and just before he left his home in Morristown, New Jersey, he kissed Susan, and told her, “I’ve never felt better in my life. I love you so.” Very nice. That’s very nice.

Rick arrived in his office before 7:30 a.m. A little more than an hour later, he heard an explosion, and looked out the window to see the North Tower consumed by flames.

Bullhorn in hand, Rick told everyone to ignore the P.A. system that was instructing them to remain at their desks. He directed them to start marching down the stairs, two-by-two. “Get out and start marching. Just do it.” And they had practiced before. Because of him, they had practiced before.

Rick ran up and down over 20 floors, telling employees to keep moving. “Keep moving. Get out. Keep moving.” Many recall him saying, “Today is a day to be tra- — proud to be an American. Tomorrow, the world will be looking at you!”

At 9:03 a.m., a plane crashed into now the South Tower. As terrified victims ran to escape the suffocating fumes, Rick remained calm and resolute in his mission. When others told Rick to run to safety, he responded, “As soon as I’ve got everybody in this building out.”

The South Tower collapsed while Rick was still inside. Through his extraordinary actions, he helped save 2,700 lives. That night, those 2,700 people went home to their loved ones.
In the 18 years since, they have raised families, sent their children to college, walked their sons and daughters down the aisle, held their grandchildren thanks, in great measure, to one extraordinary American.

Here with us today are 12 brave first responders of 9/11, along with 5 veterans who fought in the war on terror — and very, very successfully fought. Please stand. Please. (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, fellas. Thank you. Thank you very much. Great respect. I know the city well. (Laughter.) Fantastic job.

Rick’s entire life paints a beautiful picture of selfless service, and his legacy endures. Monuments and gardens have been built in his honor. A passenger train in England has been named after him. And they just gave me the most beautiful model of that train; it’ll be in the Oval Office. And poems and books and even an opera have been written to memorialize his story.

No one has done more to preserve Rick’s memory than his wife, Susan. After 9/11, Susan traveled the country and told of Rick’s courage. Rick used to stay and say that Susan’s spirit could “lift him up in just a minute.” Susan, you have really helped to lift up an entire nation. And we want to really thank you. And you have been so incredible. And this evening is a very special one. This is a very special house, it’s a very special home, and it’s a very special country.

So, to Susan, Trevor, Kim, and every one of Rick’s family members who are here: Our debt to you is beyond measure. We can never reverse the horrors of that day. We can never replace the precious lives we lost. But on behalf of our entire nation, I pledge that we will forever and always remember this incredible American hero, Colonel Rick Rescorla. We will never, ever forget.

Now, it is my privilege to ask Susan to join me onstage to accept the Presidential Citizens Medal on behalf of her great husband. (Applause.)

Would the military aide please come forward and read the citation. Thank you. Thank you, Susan.

MILITARY AIDE: Richard Cyril Rescorla. At the cost of his own, Richard Rescorla helped save the lives of nearly 2,700 people at the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001.

In the midst of the attack on the Twin Towers, Rescorla ignored advice to shelter people in place and instead aided their efforts to escape to safety. He did not, however, join the evacuation. He continued working to save lives until the tower collapsed, killing him and hundreds more.

The United States is proud to honor Rick Rescorla, whose valiant and selfless sacrifice for his fellow Americans on one of our Nation’s darkest days will never be forgotten.

(The Presidential Citizens Medal is presented.) (Applause.)

MRS. RESCORLA: Good evening, President Trump and all of you, this day of November the 7th, in the year of our Lord, 2019. And thank you so much for meeting with Rick’s family and I so privately before the ceremony.

Today is a day to honor a proud American. Eighteen years is a long time, and I thank our President for honoring Rick with the Presidential Citizens Medal.

I had asked myself, “And why now?” Because this was to be. It’s all about the journey, which has revealed so much more. Of all of the accolades, all of the tributes, both here and in the United Kingdom — 60 or more, over the years, and each one so unique — and all of the people along the journey who have touched my life, each is so memorable because I was able to learn more about this incredible man in death than in the short time we had together on Earth. And thank God we were blessed by a deeply meaningful time together.

Mr. President, we have about 200 people here who are all great women and men. And I will be honoring them at the gala event at the Plaza Hotel this evening. I know Rick would have wanted them all to be here today, and we both salute you all.

And now, on this incredible day, we are gathered here at our White House with the President of the United States, Donald Trump, in the country we love, with the flag we salute with so much respect. And looking out on you all, each one of you is so special.

On that fatal day, September 11, 2001, Rick was seen fiercely herding the people out of the building. And then he and his three men followed the firemen going further up into the South Tower. There’s even a recorder of them talking to one another. “Leave no man behind” was the core of the 7th Cavalry, and I know Rick was thinking about his men in those final moments.

The days after 9/11, so many people called me and asked me, “Did Rick make it out?” Or to tell me what Rick was saying to them as he was bringing them out of the building to safety. He was singing Cornish songs. And sometimes even whispering in their ears, “Get the hell out. Just leave. Get out.” (Laughter.)

But the — and — anyway, what was I going to say? Today is a day to be proud to be an American because the world is still looking at us. And all of you here have contributed to keeping Rick’s work and story alive so it will be in the forefront of the American memory.

But before I say the last statement, I would like to tell you something about what Rick said to me. On our first date, he said to me, “What are you about?” And I said, “What do you mean, Rick?” And he said, “Well, when I was a very young man, I declared what I wanted to be. And I knew that if I stayed on that path, that at the end of my life, that I would have done the very best that I could.” And that’s exactly what Rick did.

Thank you, Mr. President. And God bless America. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, Susan. (Applause.)

Whistleblower lawyer is a Trump-hater






Hannity: Whistleblower lawyer is a Trump-hater...Whistleblower attorney called for 'coup' and 'rebellion' against Trump in 2017.


Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a "coup has started" and that "impeachment will follow ultimately."

Then, in July 2017, Zaid remarked, "I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president." Also that month, Zaid tweeted, "We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters."

Amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid assured his Twitter followers that "as one falls, two more will take their place," apparently referring to Trump administration employees who defy the White House. Zaid promised that the "coup" would occur in "many steps."

The tweets, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the anonymous whistleblower's complaint is tainted with partisanship. Trump's call with Ukraine's leader, which is the subject of the complaint, occurred in July 2019.

“The whistleblower’s lawyer gave away the game," the Trump campaign's communications director, Tim Murtaugh, told Fox News. "It was always the Democrats’ plan to stage a coup and impeach President Trump and all they ever needed was the right scheme. They whiffed on Mueller so now they’ve settled on the perfectly fine Ukraine phone call. This proves this was orchestrated from the beginning.”

Added House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy: "We should take [Zaid] at his word that this is a coordinated, premeditated plot to overturn the election."

Trump has repeatedly accused Democrats and partisans in the intelligence community of effectively plotting a coup against him, through selective leaks and lengthy investigations.

"45 years from now we might be recalling stories regarding the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump. I'll be old, but will be worth the wait," Zaid wrote in June 2017.

He emphasized his interest in impeachment in a variety of other posts.

"Johnson (1868), Nixon (1973), Clinton (1998) impeachment hearings. Next up @realDonaldTrump (2017)," he said in May.

In a statement to Fox News on Wednesday, Zaid defended his posts as common sentiments.

“Those tweets were reflective and repeated the sentiments of millions of people," Zaid said. "I was referring to a completely lawful process of what President Trump would likely face as a result of stepping over the line, and that particularly whatever would happen would come about as a result of lawyers. The coup comment referred to those working inside the Administration who were already, just a week into office, standing up to him to enforce recognized rules of law.“

Fox News has previously reported on social media posts by Zaid that highlighted what appeared to be open animus toward the president.

Although Zaid described Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as a "mature professional," and circulated articles that touted the reliability of the largely discredited Steele dossier used by the FBI to surveil a former member of Trump's campaign, Zaid has repeatedly unloaded on the president in no uncertain terms.

Prescription Drug Prices Are Falling at Historic Levels Thanks to Trump Administration Policies



Prescription Drug Prices Are Falling at Historic Levels Thanks to Trump Administration Policies


hile the media continues to claim prescription drug prices are rising, a recent Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) paper shows the opposite: Under President Trump, prescription drug prices are decreasing at rates not seen since the 1960s.

In the eight years prior to President Trump’s inauguration, prescription drug prices increased by an average of 3.6 percent per year. Fast forward to today, and prescription drug prices have seen year-over-year declines in nine of the last ten months, with a 1.1 percent drop as of the most recent month. In June 2019, the United States saw the largest single-year drop (2.0 percent year-over-year decline) in prescription drug prices since 1967.

The media’s narrative about rising drug prices, while perhaps true for individual drugs or certain classes of drugs, is not true for general drug prices due to limitations in frequently cited reports. These misleading reports make broad claims even though they consider only narrow measures like list prices, brand name drugs, or drugs with recent price increases. Additionally, some reports use unknown methodologies (see the Appendix of CEA’s paper for more details about other reports’ flaws).

List prices do not reflect actual costs because drug manufacturers can increase list prices while simultaneously decreasing costs for insurers and consumers through discounts and rebates. Similarly, exclusively focusing on brand name drugs misses the cost savings equally effective generic drugs offer. And only measuring the average price of drugs that recently increased in price completely and conveniently ignores any drugs that had prices remain constant or decline.

To avoid these common mistakes and accurately measure average prescription drug prices, CEA relies on the prescription drug component of the Consumer Price Index (CPI-Rx), which is the best available measure of overall price changes for retail prescription drugs. The CPI-Rx and the broader CPI are produced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an independent government statistical agency, using fully transparent and extensively studied methods. Additionally, the broader CPI is a widely accepted measure of overall inflation. Even though CPI is the preferred method for measuring inflation, it still has some flaws. If anything, CPI-Rx overstates price growth because it does not fully capture the value that newer and more effective drugs provide patients. The current magnitude of this shortcoming is unknown, but it has previously been estimated to be as high as two percentage points per year.

Enhanced competition from generic drugs is an important factor behind falling prescription drug prices. Generic drug approvals reached a record high last year, due in part to FDA reforms, even though patents are expiring at a lower rate. Lower-cost generic versions of many brand name prescription drugs are widely available, and generic drug prices often decrease over time. Moving forward, additional generic drugs entering the market will continue putting downward pressure on drug prices.

Government data on prescription drug prices clearly show that the Trump Administration’s policies are helping drive historic, much-needed cost decreases. Lower prices mean American patients are better able to afford the medication they need, which should improve health outcomes. But there is more work to be done, and the Trump Administration is working on additional reforms to further lower prescription drug prices. As debates over making prescription drugs more affordable continue, it is critical that the public and policymakers understand what the most reliable data show.

Remarks by Vice President Pence in Meet and Greet with First Responders | Williamsburg, KY


Remarks by Vice President Pence in Meet and Greet with First Responders | Williamsburg, KY



THE VICE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you, Governor Bevin. Thank you to First Lady Glenna. Thank you for your great leadership, your great partnership with our administration.

When President Trump and I were campaigning through Kentucky three years ago, we said we could make America safe again. We said we could make America prosperous again. We said we could affirm all the foundational constitutional principles — have men and women appointed to our courts who will uphold all the God-given liberties enshrined in our founding documents again. And three years later, I’m proud report, in strong partnership with Governor Matt Bevin, President Donald Trump has delivered. (Applause.)

We’ve gotten this economy rolling again, just like Governor Matt Bevin did. This President arrived in Washington, D.C., and with a strong partnership with our allies on Capitol Hill, we cut taxes across the board for working families and businesses large and small.

We — just like your governor did, we cut red tape at historic levels. We’ve stood by American energy independence, and the war on coal is over. And the American economy and Kentucky’s economy are booming as a result of the leadership of President Donald Trump and Governor Matt Bevin. (Applause.)

And I want to — I want to acknowledge my great admiration for one of those members of Congress, who I had the privilege of serving with for 12 years on Capitol Hill while I represented the state of Indiana. He actually chaired the Appropriations Committee, but he never lost the common touch. I mean, to know your congressman is to know a man of faith and integrity, who always put the interest of Eastern Kentucky first. And he’s been a champion for this region. He’s been a champion for our military. He’s been a champion for law enforcement. And let me just say, not only Kentucky, but America owes a debt of gratitude to the long and distinguished service of Congressman Hal Rogers. (Applause.)

Everything we’ve been able to do over the last three years in Washington, D.C., would not have been possible without the strong, unwavering partnership that Congressman Rogers and a Republican majority in those first two years of our administration made possible.

So, Congressman, I want to thank you.

REPRESENTATIVE ROGERS: Thank you.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: The economy is booming again. But President Trump said we’re going to make America safe again. And I’m proud to report, and I’m proud to be a Vice President who served alongside a President who has made the largest investments in our national defense since the days of Ronald Reagan. We’ve rebuilt our military. (Applause.)

I know the men and women who are standing around us today wearing this uniform, many of you wore the uniform, and we thank you for your service. But as the world saw this last weekend, the investments in our armed forces have made the strongest military in the history of the world stronger still. And with the successful raid that took out the leader of ISIS, America and the world are safer. (Applause.)

But while the American military defends our nation and sees to America’s defense around the world, the men and women that are gathered around us here today keep our family safe every day at home. And I want to assure you, from the first day of this administration, you have a President and a governor who have stood without apology for the men and women of law enforcement. (Applause.)

Before Governor Bevin came into office, before President Trump came into office, it had been a challenging time for law enforcement. We all remember those days. Seemed like many reflexively wanted to blame law enforcement anytime tragedy would strike. But that’s no more.

This President has worked closely with your congressman and with your governor to make sure our local law enforcement, through Homeland Security and various other agencies, have the resources and the support that you need. And we have — alongside your governor, this President has given the men and women of law enforcement the respect that you earn every single day. (Applause.)

So I just wanted to come by today and say, on behalf of myself and my wonderful wife Karen, who is traveling with (inaudible) — (applause) — thank you for your service.

You know, the Bible says: If you owe debts, pay debts. If honor, then honor. If respect, then respect. And while we’d stopped and grabbed a couple of hamburgers down at Shep’s — big ones — (laughter) — and we’re headed off to a rally with this outstanding ticket running statewide in Kentucky, I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to come by and pay a debt of gratitude to the men and women that are standing around us here today.

I just want you to know, from your President, your Vice President, your governor: The people of Kentucky and the people of America are grateful to each and every one of you, every single day. You answered a calling in your life that required you to decide that our lives are more important than yours. And I want you to know that we know that. Just as Governor Bevin just said, we understand — we understand the risk that you take when you put on that uniform every morning and walk out the door. It’s not — it’s not like another job.

And so, let me not only say thank you to you, but let me say thank you to your families, thank you to your spouses, thank you to your kids and your grandkids and your parents. Because the men and women in uniform understand that it’s not just they that serve, it’s their families that support them and pray for them and encourage them. So let’s thank the families who (inaudible). (Applause.)

I don’t know what it’s like to wear the uniform that you wear, but I know what it’s like to be a family member. My uncle was a Chicago police officer for 25 years. And when I was a little boy, me and my three brothers and two sisters would go up to Chicago. I’d see him dressed up, heading off to work. And that, to me, was what a hero looked like.

And my cousin’s husband just retired, after 25 years, from the Chicago Fire Department. Coincidentally, he’s Irish. (Laughter.) He’s an extraordinary and courageous man — two years on disability from service-related injuries, but went right back into the fight. So that’s why I want to — I just want to speak a word of gratitude to you and, more than anything else, a word of admiration.

I know the hours are long. And as the governor said, we couldn’t ever pay you what it’s worth for the risks that you take and the lives that you save. But Karen and I just wanted to come by today, along with your governor and your first lady, just to make sure that you know: Every day, people of Kentucky and people of America are grateful — grateful for your service.

And, frankly, we’re grateful to have a governor who’s such a partner in public safety.

From our first days in office, Governor Matt Bevin has been working with this administration, shoulder to shoulder, to uphold the rule of law, to help us enforce our laws at home, support law enforcement, and secure the southern border of the United States of America. And I’m proud to report, in the last four months, we have cut illegal immigration at our southern border in half. (Applause.)

And Governor Matt Bevin has been there every step of the way, standing up for the rule of law, standing up for law and order. And that’s why, when I leave here in just a few minutes, we’re going to go rally with a few friends and tell them just how much I want to see the people of Kentucky give Governor Matt Bevin four more years in the statehouse. (Applause.)

But this stop is about all of you, and I thank you for taking a minute to be with us. And I want to promise you — I know I can speak on behalf of your governor, I know I can speak on behalf of our President and this Vice President and our entire administration when I say: We’re grateful for you. We’re with you. We will continue to stand with you as you stand on the Thin Blue Line of law enforcement, defending our families, our communities, this state, and this nation.

May God bless you and keep you as you serve the people in this community and this state. Thank you all. (Applause.)

Military Dog Hurt in al-Baghdadi Raid Returns to Duty



Military Dog Hurt in al-Baghdadi Raid Returns to Duty


A heroic dog that was injured during the U.S. military operation that killed Islamic State (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has already returned to duty, the U.S. government said Monday.


President Donald Trump lauded the canine at Sunday’s press conference in which he offered vivid details of how the elite U.S. Army special operators took down one of the world’s most wanted terrorists.

“Our ‘K-9,’ as they call it, a beautiful dog, a talented dog, was injured and brought back,” the president said in his national address from the White House.

Speaking to the Washington Examiner, one Delta Force soldier said of the dog’s wounds: “The injury to the dog is an injury to one of us. These dogs are a special breed of courageous.”

Neither President Trump nor the Department of Defense (D0D) has released additional details regarding the canine soldier, but retired Marine Ron Aiello told the New York Times that the dog was either a Belgian Malinois or German Shepherd.

“If they’re leading the patrol, they want a dog that is not only an explosive detection dog but on command can be aggressive,” said Aiello. “On a mission like this you want a dog that can be aggressive when necessary.”

In 2011, U.S. Navy SEALs similarly used a dog during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s secret compound in 2011, which resulted in the Taliban leader’s death.

Offering more details about this weekend’s raid, President Trump said al-Baghdadi fled from U.S. military personnel during the operation and detonated a suicide vest in a dead-end tunnel, killing himself and three children.

An on-site DNA test confirmed al-Baghdadi’s identity.

“He was whimpering, screaming and crying, and frankly, I think it’s something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids that want to leave various countries – including the United States – they should see how he died,” the president said of the now-dead terror chief. “He didn’t die a hero, he died a coward – crying, whimpering, and screaming and bringing three kids with him to die. Certain death.”

“No personnel were lost in the operation,” Trump added, “while a large number of Baghdadi’s fighters and companions were killed with him.”

Disgust, validation, hope: Survivors, Catholics react to report detailing 70 years of Colorado clergy sex abuse



Disgust, validation, hope: Survivors, Catholics react to report detailing 70 years of Colorado clergy sex abuse

Seeing Father George Weibel’s name printed in the newspaper Thursday brought Hazel Lorraine Kroehl back to the Broomfield swimming pool where 60 years earlier the priest abused her.

Emotions flooded Kroehl. Then old shame crept up, before being washed away with gratitude. Finally, the world knew the priest for who he was — a pedophile.

Then Kroehl, 72, burst into tears.

“This is the first time I’ve ever cried over it,” she said Thursday.

For Kroehl and other victims of sex abuse by Catholic priests, the release Wednesday of a damning report detailing 70 years of clergy abuse in Colorado dredged up memories of the men who abused them. But seeing the priests’ names and descriptions of their crimes also validated what happened to survivors many decades ago.

The report also caused pain and deep reflection for many in Colorado’s Catholic community. Each new detail can test a person’s faith, though many remain loyal to their church, despite its flaws.

“I think like a lot of Catholics it’s complicated,” said Katie Lacz, a lifelong Catholic and a program associate at the Women’s Ordination Conference. “We’re all faced in this situation with this question of staying or leaving and all the implications of that. How can you stay? And how can you leave?”
RELATED: Colorado Catholic Church sexual abuse investigation: Who are the 40 priests named in the report?

The 263-page report — spearheaded by the Colorado Attorney General’s Office — is the most in-depth accounting of clergy sex abuse in Colorado to date. Its author, former Colorado U.S. Attorney Bob Troyer, found that 43 priests here abused at least 166 children and that the church hierarchy worked for years to hide allegations from the public and created a culture where abuse went unreported.

Publishing the investigation has brought a flurry of new abuse reports to the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, spokesman Lawrence Pacheco said Thursday.
Survivors

When the list of abusive priests published online, Juliane Honeywell Haburchak immediately scrolled through the list of names searching for the priest who abused her more than 40 years ago.

Over the decades, Haburchak had searched George Weibel’s name online to see if his abuse had been made public, to see what ever happened to the man that groped her and a friend in a Littleton church when she was about 12 years old. She never found anything except his obituary.

At the time of her abuse, Weibel was leading an evening class at Columbine Catholic Parish she had to attend so that she could take her first confession. During one of those classes, Weibel put his arms around the shoulders of her and a friend and groped their breasts, Haburchak said. He asked multiple times if the touch was painful.

“I just remember thinking ‘That’s not right,'” Haburchak said. “But I didn’t have words for it.”

She eventually told her mom, but her mom never reported it. She became a more anxious and fearful child but didn’t tell anybody else.

Haburchak later left her faith — being at church made her nervous. In her late 20s, Harburchak returned to the church — now St. Francis Cabrini Parish — to see if Weibel still worked there. She thought about confronting him. But she never made it past the church’s entryway.

Instead, she was met with a large painted portrait of the man who had abused her. Fear enveloped her. How could this man who abused her be seen with so much respect?

“I felt so horrible,” she said.

When Weibel’s name appeared in the investigative report Wednesday, Harburchak felt relieved to see his crimes come to light.

“It was just so validating,” she said.

Harburchak said that one of the worst things that Weibel’s abuse did to her was cause her to lose her faith for decades, though she later returned to Christianity.

“I felt like I left a part of myself out for years,” she said.

Sixteen years before Weibel met Harburchak at the old Columbine parish, the priest met Kroehl through her parents. The priest would offer to take Kroehl and her siblings to a local pool in Broomfield. The priest would play games with the kids and on multiple occasions over the summer of 1959, Weibel groped 10-year-old Kroehl’s breasts over her swimsuit, she said.

She told her mom and sister years later about what happened when Weibel offered to take her and her siblings to a local pool, but didn’t report it otherwise.

“I never, ever thought I needed to call someone about this because I didn’t think anybody would believe me,” Kroehl said. “He was a representative of God, right? He couldn’t do anything wrong, could he? I thought I must have done something wrong to make him do that.”

Kroehl remained Catholic for a number of years. She became a social worker and for years helped children in Boulder County. Seeing Weibel’s name printed in the report brought her back to those terrifying moments in the pool, but it was healing, she said.

“It’s a validation of feeling,” she said. “The fact that it did happen. It wasn’t something I imagined. I wasn’t nuts.”

For the broader Colorado Catholic community, the report has brought the realities of an international scandal to the same churches they attend and made it more personal.

Lifelong Catholic and former state Sen. Rob Hernandez said seeing the names of priests he knew as a child shook him. Even though Hernandez has known of allegations against priests for years, the report destroyed impressions of men he had seen as role models.

“It shattered my impression of them and it shook me to my Catholic core,” Hernandez said of the report. “To think that those in power in the hierarchy of the church who preach these vows and the 10 commandments knew this was going on and didn’t protect us. We were children.”

Growing up in the Pueblo diocese in the 1960s, he said he knew boys who had been victimized and priests who preyed. He watched as adults repeatedly failed to intervene. Although the pain caused him to question how a loving God could allow such horror, he remained steadfast in his faith.


“My faith is internally strong,” he said. “I’ve always had a personal relationship with God and my maker, and that hasn’t shattered.”

Lacz was also devastated by the report, she said.

“My initial reaction is both deep sadness and a lack of surprise at the same time,” she said. “And that lack of surprise itself makes me very sad.”

But Lacz said she couldn’t turn away from a faith that is a central part of her identity. Instead, she vows to fight from the inside and hopes to make it a better, safer place. She doubts her decision to stay in the church sometimes. There are hard days, like Wednesday and Thursday, she said.

“And yet I believe in a Holy Spirit that moves in difficult situations,” she said.

Catholic priests in Colorado sexually abused at least 166 children in the past 70 years


Catholic priests in Colorado sexually abused at least 166 children in the past 70 years

Thu October 24, 2019

CNN)At least 166 children were abused by dozens of Catholic priests in Colorado since 1950, a report released Wednesday says.

The 263-page report details decades of misconduct and reveals how it took nearly 20 years for one diocese to discipline priests accused of sexually abusing children.

"This is a dark and painful history," Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser told reporters. "The culture going back decades was one where there was a reluctance to acknowledge and address wrongdoing."

The report was commissioned by the Colorado attorney general's office in agreement with the state's three dioceses to document sexual misconduct involving minors by priests.

For seven months, former US Attorney Bob Troyer reviewed more than 500 priest files and interviewed witnesses, victims, priests and law enforcement. In his findings, Troyer says most of the incidents took place in the 1960s and 1970s.

The most recent allegations were made in 1998 and involve a Denver priest who sexually abused four children, the report states.

Denver Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila apologized to the victims in a video and a letter posted online.

"If any survivor wishes to meet with me personally, my door is open," Aquila said. "I have met with many survivors, and from these heart wrenching personal interactions, I know there are no words that I can say that will take away the pain.

"However, I want to be clear that on behalf of myself and the Church, I apologize for the pain and hurt that this abuse has caused. I am sorry about this horrible history -- but it is my promise to continue doing everything I can so it never happens again. My sincere hope is that this report provides some small measure of justice and healing."


A priest allegedly abused over 60 children

One of the priests named in the report, Father Harold Robert White, abused at least 63 children over 21 years.
White, who was described in the report as the "most prolific known clergy child sex abuser in Colorado history," served in six parishes from 1960 until he was removed from ministry in 1993.

"When he had sexually abused enough children at a parish that scandal threatened to erupt, the Denver Archdiocese moved him to a new one geographically distant enough that White was not known there," the report states.

White died in 2006. He was never placed on restricted ministry or sent for a psychiatric evaluation, and he never underwent an investigation, the report says.

Weiser said the report's findings won't result in a criminal investigation as they are not within the statute of limitations.

The report indicates that it's "impossible" to say with certainty that no child abuse has taken place in recent years due to the dioceses' poor record-keeping. But the priest files reviewed by Troyer do not show that any priest in active ministry has sexually abused children, the report said.

Authorities and diocese officials also announced a settlement fund for victims of clergy abuse. Both victims who have previously reported their abuse and those who make reports in the coming weeks can submit a request for compensation.

Weiser said authorities want to make sure those who have been hurt receive help, and that they can protect the community moving forward.

CNN's Sara Weisfeldt contributed to this report.
