Catholic schools are still a very dangerous place for children, as you can see by this week’s conviction of a Catholic pedophile priest and a teacher who both had sex with a 10 year old boy, passing him to each other and to another priest in Philly. Google Avery, Engelhardt, and Shero.

The Catholic church tried to protect the pedophiles as they tried to protect Msgr Lynn, who admitted shredding evidence about 35 known pedophile priests in 1994 at the request of Cardinal Bevilacqua and Bishops Cistone and Cullen.

Parents – be wary. Catholics protect their pedophiles like Jesus would protect children.
