Recently in the new, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Father Tarcisio Tadeu Spricigo was jailed for 14 years and eight months for sexually abusing two boys, one of them a five-year-old. In his diary, obtained by police in Sao Paulo, the 48-year-old priest stressed the need “to have boys who can keep a secret and without sexual scruples”.
He recommended: “Always present oneself as the dominator. Be caring and not hurried. Never ask questions, but have certainties. Get secure and needy boys, who don’t have fathers and who are poor. Never get involved with rich kids.”
Why has the ‘church’ not stopped the process of training priests in monestaries - when all it seems to have done is create world-wide sexual abusers? [This is not a new problem]. The sicker question is why has the ‘church’, in many documented cases, shuffled abusive priests off to some other parish or to a “desk job” somewhere?
