[Catholic Cover-Up] A Cardinal, a Monseigneur, and 500 children walk into a bar
The L.A. Times is breaking today with news that starting back in the mid-1980s, the Los Angeles Archdioceses has be involved in an active conspiracy to cover-up accusations of child abuse and molestation in over 500
cases. Primarily, the investigation has centered on the now-deceased Monseigneur Peter Garcia, responsible for an alleged 17 cases of abuse himself, who the the Cardinal, Roger Mahoney, in league with Monseigneur Thomas Curry, ordered to be removed to a New Mexican dioceses to escape prosecution and remove risk of PR problems with the L.A. diocese.
Mahony wrote on July 22, 1986: "I believe if Monsignor Garcia were to reappear here within the archdiocese we might very well have some type of legal action filed in both the criminal and civil sectors. Signed, sincerely yours in Christ, most reverend Roger Mahony."
Monsignor Curry concurred: "There are numerous - maybe 20 - adolescents or young adults that Peter Garcia was involved with in a first degree felony manner. The possibility of one of these seeing him is simply too great."
