A Jesuit university is identifying who it feels is responsible for abuse within the order's institutions. In tonight's In-Depth Report, Church Militant's Nick Wylie discusses who is being blamed for clerical sex abuse.
Fr. Bryan Massingale, professor, Fordham University: "The sexual abuse crisis in the Church is a gift that's going to keep on giving."
Last week, Fordham University released a report accusing patriarchy, white racist supremacy and heterosexism for the order's abuse crisis.
The 68-page report titled "Taking Responsibility: Jesuit Educational Institutions Confront the Causes and Legacy of Clerical Sexual Abuse," consists of research projects conducted by 18 teams at 10 Jesuit universities.
While the report did place blame on the Jesuits and the order's norms for the mishandling of abuse, woke talking points were given ample due.
Jeremy Cruz, Ph.D., professor, St. John's University: "Communities are going to have a hard time untangling some of the inherent misogyny and homophobia in these conversations and in the shame if we're not also understanding the colonial and racial violence."
Investigators from Gonzaga University accused the Church of being "distorted by intersecting systems of clericalism, patriarchy, misogyny, heterosexism, settler-colonialism, white racist supremacy, supersessionism, and Christian supremacy, to the point that the church has become an instrument of ... the new imperial disorder."
The Gonzaga group concluded, "The type of structural and theological reform needed in the church will be possible only when the insights of feminist, decolonial, and other liberationist theologians drive the church's agenda for a renewal."
Homosexual priest Fr. Bryan Massingale claims the Church is racist and must confront "its complicity in white supremacy, going beyond lament and apology to effective restitution and reparation."
Massingale: "I believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, in case anyone from Church Militant is listening. That's not one of my heresies."
Santa Clara University used its portion of the report to advocate for "anti-clericalism," which includes "collaborative approaches to ministry that empower lay people to use their gifts and talents, and strategies that foster healthy sexual integration and raise consciousness about harmful forms of masculinity and femininity linked to patriarchal constructions of gender."
If Fordham wished to actually highlight the causes of clerical sex abuse, it would have devoted its report to the power-driven homosexual mafia in the clergy, not woke talking points.
According to multiple studies, more than 80% of clerical sex abuse victims were male, with 80 to 90% being postpubescent.
