Here's what you should do it if you know someone abused by a Catholic priest in N.J.

Posted on September 23, 2018 8:00 AM | Updated September 21, 2018 6:43 PM

If you are a victim of clergy sexual abuse in New Jersey – or know someone who was abused – state investigators say they are ready to listen.

The state Attorney General’s office set up a hotline earlier this month for anyone to report cases of sexual abuse by clergy members. The hotline is the first step in an investigation into how the Catholic Church in New Jersey handled abuse allegations in the wake of a similar probe by a grand jury in Pennsylvania that uncovered abuse cases involving 300 priests.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said Wednesday the new hotline has been “ringing off the hook.”

JERSEY CITY -- The teen who was shot dead Tuesday evening was in the wrong place at the wrong time, a family friend told The Jersey Journal Wednesday morning.

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office confirmed the identity of the victim as Jayden Fondeur, a 17-year-old junior at Ferris High School. A man who identified himself as a close family friend, who asked not to be identified, said the Fondeur family said Jayden was the victim of a drive-by shooting.

Victims of priest sexual abuse who signed confidentiality agreements with Catholic dioceses in New Jersey are free to ignore those deals and speak publicly about their experiences, church officials said in a statement Tuesday.

The announcement means all victims who reached financial settlements with the Catholic Church in New Jersey can call a new hotline established by the state Attorney General's office earlier this month to speak to investigators gathering evidence of clergy sexual abuse in the church.

Without the "benefit" of a Roman Catholic upbringing, particularly in ethnically traditional parishes where God's law is paramount and the salvation of your eternal soul is one's only focus, it will be difficult for the "regular guy" to fully understand how profound and omnipotent the church's power was/is in the day-to-day life of a pious parishioner.

You just didn't talk about scandal anyway, much less anything that was going on in the church. You'd never be believed - not by your parish leaders, not by your elders, not by the police, et al. Priests in my day held the ultimate power and judgment in one's life - particularly in our blue collar neighborhood. They could, and did, get away with everything. That's pretty heady stuff that gets passed down, priestly generation to priestly generation.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely - and here we are in 2018.

The numbers of victims (children, adolescents, men, women, fellow priests/nuns) are ridiculously under-reported. This has been going on forever.

Funny, my little guy and I were just studying the history of the system of Catholic pardons/indulgences and how that catapulted reformation efforts centuries ago.

It's time for a new kind of reformation.

It goes back further than the panhandling.

If Mr. Bradford had been institutionalized for his mental illness/addiction - as his long arrest record perhaps indicates - he may have still been here.

We blow our horns about criminal justice reform, but we wear full blindfolds about the necessary reforms in the treatment of the mental illness that leads to criminality. As a society, we have to admit that closing long-term mental hospitals and prohibiting caregivers from committing family members who needed and refused help, was a mistake (well intended to fight the abuses, but a mistake nonetheless). We need more treatment facilities for addiction and we cannot let folks out after 30 days expecting them to be cured.

During his homily at his first morning Mass at Santa Marta since the summer break, Pope Francis recommended “silence and prayer” when one is confronted “with people lacking good will, with people who only seek scandal, who seek only division, who seek only destruction, even within the family: silence, prayer.”

“The truth is meek. The truth is silent. The truth is not noisy," Pope Francis said in his homily.

The first sentence from Center for Disease control and prevention, "In 2016, youth aged 13 to 24 made up 21% of all new HIV diagnoses in the United States."

It is also the reason why the government must also check what is going on in Hollywood. https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2 ... -movie-campaign-interview


(FROM CDC WEBSITE) In 2016:

8,451 youth received an HIV diagnosis in the United States.

Eighty percent (6,776) of those diagnoses occurred in young people aged 20 to 24.

Eighty-one percent (6,848) of HIV diagnoses were among youth with infections attributed to male-to-male sexual contact.

African Americans accounted for 54% (3,719) of infections attributed to male-to-male sexual contact, Hispanics/Latinos accounted for 25% (1,687), whites accounted for 16% (1,094), and other races/ethnicities accounted for 5%.

Four percent (274) of infections among young men were attributed to heterosexual contact, 3% (228) were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use, and 1% (98) to injection drug use alone.

992 young women received an HIV diagnosis. Eighty-seven percent (865) of those infections were attributed to heterosexual contact and 9% (92) were attributed to injection drug use.

1,473 youth received an AIDS diagnosis, representing 8% of total AIDS diagnoses that year.

And for those playing at home:

Most new HIV cases in younger people are due to unprotected sex; one third are from sharing contaminated needles used to inject drugs or other substances (such as steroids), or used for tattooing and body art.

I don't understand why this conversation is getting hung up on clinical definitions? Pedophilia pertains to pre-pubescent children. That being said, kids of all ages are being abused. Can we leave the Latin aside and worry about all of them?


Thank you. Each and every time someone tries to deflect or rationalize this behavior is another time a victim is marginalized. There are so many more that are afraid to come forward because of the judgment and shame.

These priests were "men of God" - weaponizing God with threats of eternal damnation to often manipulate and overpower their victims. Can you imagine being a youngster grappling with that kind of threat?

Their victims are boys AND girls - of all ages and backgrounds. The life-long repercussions of these crimes include much higher rates of depression, substance abuse and suicide.

The fish stinks at the head - and it has for a very long time. Unless the Church faces this scandal once and for all - with heads rolling from the very top of the mountain, they will (continue to) lose their faithful.

As soon as this became known to the Monsignor at OLC, Father Jerry was put on restricted duties, within a week of finding out he has been kicked out of OLC.

I believe each and everyone of these Priests should have a long and stiff prison sentence. This cancer of the church must be removed. But this in noway diminishes my belief in the Church and what it stands for.

I pray for all the victims that they may find closure with this.


So tell me - this article from 2007 popped up on a very quick Google search:

http://www.snapnetwork.org/news/other ... 61007_battle_5_years.html

Are you telling me that the smart Monsignor didn't know of these allegations previously? The canonical "trial" settled the claim satisfactorily - or the 5-figure payout to the victim was sufficient to take care of potential concerns?

Someone put a predator in front of our children - and the archdiocese clearly knew about his past. That's the continued shame and gall of it all - and why Catholics are losing faith.

A priest has stepped away from his Jersey City parish while the Newark archdiocese investigates a new allegation of decades-old abuse, a spokesman for the archdiocese said.

The Rev. Gerard Sudol, who faced similar accusations 15 years ago that were a part of a million-dollar settlement -- was a priest "in residence" at Our Lady of Czestochowa Downtown. He had been at the church since July 2015.

No cardiologist recommendation (other than the folks at Hackensack University Medical Center) but I hope you feel better! Check into GERD and a hiatal hernia as alternate diagnosis if you're tests come back normal. Both can make you feel like you're having a heart attack.

Polish statue petition drive fails initial round...

(While I respect the petitioners right to participate in this process, wasting the time of the city with so many bogus signatures erodes their credibility quite significantly IMHO)

(Excerpt) . Petitioners, who need signatures from 6,714 valid Jersey City voters, submitted 3,833 valid signatures out of the 9,471 total they delivered on July 3, according to Byrne.

About 60 percent of the people whose signatures were submitted to the clerk were either not found in the state's voter database or are not registered to vote in Jersey City, according to a July 23 letter Byrne sent to the petitioners. One of the petitions purports to have the signatures of Bill Clinton and Dennis Rodman.

More than $100,000 in jewelry, phones, and cash were stolen during a home invasion early Thursday at a luxury high-rise in the Newport section of Jersey City, authorities said.

The Jersey City Police Department's Major Case Unit is investigating the home invasion at 465 Washington Blvd. -- one of the two 50-story Monaco towers -- city spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said.

Police responded to the complex just after midnight on the call of a home invasion and determined that two males allegedly forced their way into an apartment and robbed four women, Wallace-Scalcione said.

No one was injured, Wallace-Scalcione said, adding that authorities believe the incident involved people who knew each other.

"The overall plan for this area is to keep the St. Lucy's shelter in the vicinity of its current location and rehab the church for a residential project that would subsidize a state-of-the-art shelter, as well as new affordable/transitional housing in that area," Peterson said."
