Benedict XVI the Liar strikes again as Vatican rejects American lawsuit by Terry Kohut who was raped with other 200 deaf boys by a rapist-priest
Benedict XVI's mea culpa and sorry during Holy Week and Year for Priests last year are all in vain. Here is his latest pathological lie as he directs the Vatican to reject an American lawsuit against him as Cardinal Ratzinger by sending away a FedEx messenger on some grounds of technicality. There will never be justice for victims of the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army as long as Cardinal Ratzinger (and Cardinal Bernard Law) are sitting in the high Peter's Chair of Rome and none of the victims have their day in the true court of law.
Fr. Lawrence Murphy was the chaplain of St. John’s School for the deaf (only boys) and he molested more than 200 deaf boys for more than two decades. Terry Kohut was one of those boys he raped repeatedly who has come out and is now suing Benedict XVI who was Cardinal Ratzinger who knew of allegations regarding Murphy as early as 1995. It was Cardinal Ratzinger and John Paul II's culture of secrecy that helped perpetuate clergy sex abuse. Below is the letter of Kohut to Fr. Lawrence, February 12, 1995 (we are in February 1, 2011) describing him as “The Best Molester on Earth” and all of the rapes and their effects on him with a copy sent to Pope john Paul II and Archbishop Weakland. Cardinal Ratzinger at that time was the powerful Head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from 1981 to 2005 and the right hand man of John Paul II therefore he was the person the most responsible in the cover-up of all members of the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army. Fr. Lawrence Murphy is the most notorious member of the JP2 Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army in America.
It is imperative to read this and other personal letters of Terry Kohut – we put the entire letter and other letters' links here below - to understand why we are right in claiming that The Nazis and the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army were both an inherently evil all-male elite hierarchy born from the Devil's bowels see article in http://jp2army.blogspot.com/2011/01/nazis-and-john-paul-ii-pedophiles.html and why John Paul II is the Pope of Sodomy because the fed the belly of the Devil the Serpent of Sodomy with thousands of pedophiles rapists-priests during his longest reigning papacy of 26 years see John Paul II versus Our Lady of Guadalupe: The contrast between two Catholic Suns http://stella0maris.blogspot.com/. John Paul II never protected little boys from rapists-priests and that is his most important legacy and that is why he can never be called a “saint” and cannot be prayed to as “saint” by American children and by all children in the world.

Copy to Pope John Paul II and Archbishop Weakland
(What an irony that we are in February 1, 2011 and John Paul II is on his road to sainthood on May 1, 2011. John Paul II can only be in Hell because he fed the belly of the Serpent of Sodomy)
February 12, 1995
To Mr. Lawrence Murphy:
I am writing this letter because I am very, very, very furious at you
for molesting me when I was a student at S1. John's School for the Deaf, ruining my life and almost ruining my marriage.
I cannot keep our secret about your life as a terrible molestor at our school for many years. I must tell the truth to Archbishop Weakland about you and how you ruined mine and many other children's faith in God and Jesus. You made us hate the Catholic church because we couldn't understand how you could be such a hypocrite of a priest who taught us about God while you were the secret molestor.
Everytime I see other priests I wonder, "Are they molestors, too?" They always remind me of you; a clever wolf, a mortal sinner, a heavy luster who walked among us every night in the Catholic dorm. We couldn't even hear you coming. would lay awake every night shaking in fear that this would be a night you would touch me. Can you imagine that? Can you? Jesus on the cross on the wall saw you coming every night to molest us. He must have been shocked and grieved every time. I hope he cried like we did, because we were innocent children, pure Christians, good altar boys, and cute lambs. I hope Jesus is very furious at you and will send you .to hell very soon.
I remember almost everything now. It is all so ugly it makes me want to throw up every time I have to face another memory of you. One time you told me that a deaf boy molested you at S1. John's School and that is why you became a molestor. I do not believe you anymore!! Do you hear me? I don't believe you!!! You always blamed deaf children! I cannot stand to hear you famous say, "I am very kind to deaf children and they stab my back, why?" You must be a very sick person. We did not stab your back. We finally started protecting each other from you because you are the skillful, sly, molestor. Some people still believe you are a holy priest. I cannot stand it!
It finally became clear to me why you required some deaf boys who couldn't pay tuition to work for you while others did not have to work for pay. The boys who had to work all had foreskins and the ones who stayed for free were all circumcised. Remember, you didn't like boys with foreskins. We circumcised students paid in another way; a sick way that haunts me every hour of my waking life. Do you understand me? The answer must be that you are mentally ill. How else could you molest me at night and then raise the host to God in the morning?
Do you remember another time I cannot stand to think about? A time that a poor deaf helpless boy went to St. Francis Police Station and told them that you molested him. You told the policeman that "The kid is mentally retarded." The policeman believed you and left. I want to know how you live with yourself. How do you look in the mirror knowing the number of lives you've destroyed? You are such an expert liar I guess you have convinced yourself that you have done nothing wrong. I am here to tell you that you have done major harm to us. Many of our lives are over because of you. Tell yourself THAT the next time you shave. Shame on you!
Do you remember when you caught a deaf boy sleeping with another deaf boy? Do you? I do. You spanked him with your belt but all the while you molested him. The depth of your destruction is like a deep dark bottomless pit that has no end.
Do you remember when I told you that Mr. Barrett molested us? The next thing I knew he left our school. You must have missed him alot since you went and visited him so many times. You make me sick.
Do you remember how you punished us and told us we couldn't eat our breakfast because we did not receive holy communion? No one dared to say you had no right to enforce the laws of the church because you were nothing but a molestor. Why didn't we say anything? Because we were frightened lambs and you were the deadly wolf. Now I know you are less than nothing. Not powerful. Nothing but a sick manipulator.
Do you remember how you told my high school girlfriend that her parents complained that I dated her too much? She asked her parents and they were puzzled. Why were they puzzled? Because they never said that! You were jealous of my interest in her. You wanted me to be YOUR lover. cannot stand to think of it. I can't describe how revolted I was when I was told you admitted to the therapist that you were "in love with mel"
One of my sickest memories is how you shared your secret molesting of boys with Klenke at St. Rita's School for the Deaf. You two had nothing less than a Catholic pornography ring! You molested the children in your Catholic elementary dorm and sent them on to Klenke's Catholic high school dorm where he then took his turn molesting them.
Do you remember? I recall he quit Klenke's Catholic pornography school. He came over to your school with his parents. You told his parents you wanted to talk to him alone. He told me you told him that you were gay and Klenke wanted him back. He was shocked and his parents asked him what was wrong. Like the rest of us, he said nothing. Do you know that he later committed suicide? You and Klenke are responsible for his suicide. God must punish you and send you to hell to stay forever.
never had a chance at life. You stole that from him. Unlike you, he will never enjoy a Florida beach or a Wisconsin cabin. He will never laugh with friends and family. I hope every time you do any of thesl;! things you will now see face. The very least you could do is be sorry, but you aren't. Well, am. am sorry for and myself and all of the other's whose futures you wiped out from under them.
Do you remember when Barrett caughlt you molesting me? I wished and prayed he would help me and I also wished he could report you to Archbishop Cousin. But guess what? He figured since you were molesting us then he was free to do it, too. And he did!
You and Barrett are responsible for one boy who has been in a mental hospital since his twenties. He, too, was a good friend of mine. He too has never enjoyed the life the Catholic church has provided for you. I curse you and Barrett both!
Hey, does the church know about your male lover in Monroe, Wisconsin? Again, I am confused as I was taught at your hand a priest vowed chastity. But what is that compared to the number of souls you have single handedly destroyed? Anyway, I am sure Satan knows and is very proud of you, his servant.
But just tell me one thing. How could you hurt me the way you did? I was just a little kid. My mother had just told you the trauma I suffered over the past three years.
She told you all of that and BEGGED you to take care of me. I was numb with grief and fear and looked to you for some kind of comfort and security. You were all I had. No one at home signed. I could not communicate with them. I turned to you and what did you do? You molested me, that's what. You took advantage of a lost little
boy who had no one else. Because if you remember, as I do, you told me that my mother no longer loved me You isolated me from the one person who possibly could have rescued me. I hate you for that.
I never understood why you were so popular with the deaf children. They seemed to love you very much. know now how children often run to the very people who hurt them.
Remember the big statue of Jesus hugging the children beside our old school? The statue showed him being very kind to them. You fooled us by copying that pose, got us close and molested us. You should have never been a priest in the first place.
I remember when my friend wanted to become Catholic so he asked me to be his Godfather. You baptized him .. then molested him after confession. That is so disgusting!!!!!!!!!!
Last year I learned that Archbishop Weakland fired you. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. But then I heard you still serve Mass in your home. How dare you! You cannot serve Mass because you are not a priest anymore. God does not accept you as a priest because you molested and ruined us. You must stop serving Mass. YOU ARE NO LONGER A PRIEST!!!
Do you know that you really ruined my life? I could never trust men because I thought maybe they would molest me as you did. Do you remember that first time? I came to confession and you asked if I had been masturbating. Then you told me to pull down my pants. I will always feel the horror of that moment. The conflict inside. Telling me to go to the bed and lie down. Touching me. Letting me believe that it is not a sin if you are the one masturbating me. I would not go to hell because you are a priest. And then continuing to allow me to believe that garbage for so many years! And then wanting me to touch you, bringing my hand to touch
you. I become sick thinking of it.
Because of you I have had trouble relating to people because I was always afraid they would ask me about you. The shame was isolating and all consuming. I did not want to become close friends with anyone in college because again I was afraid they would discover my dirty secret.
Now I look at different priests and wonder, "Are they molestors?" I lost
my Catholic faith because you confused me about Jesus and God. They
should stop your heart and send you to hell before you rape more children.
The pain was unbearable at times. When I met my future wife finally told someone about my hideous past. I told her. Instead of relieving me I suddenly was overcome with excruciating panic attacks. The worse part is, I almost lost her because I blamed her for them. I couldn't plan a wedding because I could never predict when I would be sent spiraling into the fear that was so overwhelming. So I thanks to you, we were married alone in a church of no particular faith. I had terrible anxiety attad:s on our honeymoon because of you. I lost my job in panic and anxiety attacks were so debilitating I couldn't concentrate. But witll the love and support of my wonderful wife who stood by me through it all, finally passed it. You almost ruined my marriage, but you couldn't.
I wanted to start a family four years ago, but I couldn't because of my instability. Now my wife may have uterine cancer and we may never have children. I curse, curse, curse you!
You built a new school in order to molest more children and ruined them. The school closed. You ruined the Catholic deaf children's future.
I remember being very angry with you while I was in high school. You had taken me to your cottage in Boulder Jet. I told you I planned to tell Archbishop Cousin about you. You told me that you were insane and told me to go ahead to tell the bishop. I finally told Archbishop Weakland that you admitted that you are insane.
I have one more thing to tell. You taught me about heaven and Hell in our school. Now I know for sure that you will see your powerful Satan in hell very soon. God lets no one into heaven who is not deeply, truly, and shamefully sorry for his sins, in your case, atrocities. I am sure that Satan will be proud to give you a big award, "The Best Molestor on the Earth." You should be very excited about seeing Klenke again who should also share your torment.
I have been working very hard to get my soul back with God and Jesus. With the love and support of my family and friends I hope to heal. My shame and my dirty secret are back where they belong, with you, their creator.

Vatican sends back Fr. Murphy lawsuit (he abused 200+ deaf kids)
Deaf victims of St. John's appealing to Listecki to intervene with Pope in Federal lawsuit
Vatican refusing to cooperate with Federal court in Milwaukee in Murphy case
Judge's summons to Pope and two top Vatican officials sent back as "unwanted and undesirable"
In a stunning move, Vatican officials are refusing to be served with a child sex abuse lawsuit, returning it with the words "unwanted and undesired."
In response, at a news conference clergy child sex abuse victims, including victims of Fr. Lawrence Murphy while at St. John's School for the Deaf in St. Francis, Wis., will blast the Catholic hierarchy for:
· rebuffing the US justice system,
· continuing to ignore the appeal for healing from 200+ deaf victims sexually molested at a Milwaukee school, and
· delaying the "long overdue disclosure" of secret church records about the cover up of clergy sex crimes by a long-time Wisconsin predator priest
In addition, they will attempt to hand deliver a letter to Milwaukee's archbishop Jerome Listecki urging him to "show courage, challenge the Vatican, and advocate for these still-suffering Wisconsin crime victims."
Monday, January 31, 1:30 p.m.
Outside the Cousins Center, which is the headquarters of the Milwaukee archdiocese, 3501 South Lake Drive
Several victims of clergy child sex crimes, including deaf victims of Fr. Lawrence Murphy, who belong to the international support group called SNAP, Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, SNAPnetwork.org.
After initially accepting a summons from the US federal court in Milwaukee concerning a civil suit involving top Vatican officials, including Pope Benedict XVI, the Holy See returned it late Friday by FEDEX to the United States, with the marking: "Undesirable and Unwanted". The lawsuit concerns the decades long cover up of serial child molester Fr. Lawrence Murphy from the archdiocese of Milwaukee.
The federal lawsuit, which was filed last March, and was the first of its kind, directly names Cardinal Ratzinger and two Vatican secretaries of state, in covering up the child sex crimes against hundreds of deaf children by Murphy as director of St. John's School for the Deaf in Franklin, Wisconsin. Murphy died in 1998.
Previously secret church records from Milwaukee show that every Milwaukee archbishop since at least 1958 knew Murphy was sexually assaulting children at the boarding school.
By 1976, according to the records, Vatican officials became involved in the Murphy case. At that time, Murphy was transferred from Milwaukee to a parish in northern Wisconsin, where he remained for several decades, unreported and unsupervised, working with children and families, as well as with the deaf community. At least one lawsuit has been filed by a victim of Murphy in his assignments after Milwaukee.
In the mid 1990's the Vatican again became involved with Murphy, this time through the office of the powerful Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), at that time headed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI. In 1997, Ratzinger's office ruled that Murphy would not have to face a church trial in Milwaukee and could remain a priest in good standing until his death. He was never turned over to civil authorities.
Two recently released letters show Vatican officials instructing local bishops against providing records about pedophile priests to judicial authorities in Ireland in the 1990's and the United States in the 1980's. Last year, a letter surfaced from the Vatican secretary of state to a French bishop congratulating him on behalf of Pope John Paul II for not turning a pedophile priest over to police. John Paul, who died in 2005, is being presented for official sainthood by Pope Benedict in May.
Although Vatican officials say they now cooperate with criminal and civil laws around the globe, Friday's rejection of the summons by the Federal Court in Milwaukee demonstrates that they still consider themselves "above the law" and is reminiscent of its response to formal inquiries in 2006 from Irish government authorities that were investigating widespread child abuse by clerics in Ireland.
NB: Attorneys for the victim in the Milwaukee federal suit, along with the nation's leading constitutional expert on these cases, Professor Marcie Hamilton, will hold an 11:00 a.m. CST press conference in St. Paul, MN and streamed live at www.AndersonAdvocates.com.

Lawyer for Wis. accuser: Vatican rejected lawsuit
Published Sunday, January 30, 2011
By PATRICK CONDON Associated Press, The Associated Press - MINNEAPOLIS
The attorney for a man who says he was sexually abused decades ago by a now-deceased priest at a Wisconsin school for the deaf alleged Sunday that the Vatican refused to be served with a lawsuit over the matter.
St. Paul attorney Jeff Anderson, who frequently clashes with the Catholic hierarchy over abuse allegations, said Sunday in a news release that his office tried to serve the lawsuit naming as defendants Pope Benedict XVI and other high-ranking officials at the Vatican, but that it was returned via Federal Express.
Anderson's client, listed in court papers as John Doe, is a deaf man from Illinois who alleged in his lawsuit that the late Rev. Lawrence Murphy molested him for a number of years while Murphy worked at a Milwaukee-area school for the deaf. The lawsuit contends that Pope Benedict and other Vatican officials conspired to keep quiet decades of abuse allegations against Murphy.
Anderson did not immediately return a call Sunday seeking comment. According to his release, he is planning a news conference Monday in which he'll accuse the Vatican of "dragging out the healing of deaf victims."
Jeffrey Lena, the U.S.-based attorney for the Vatican, said in an e-mail Sunday that the lawsuit should have been served through diplomatic channels as would be done with any foreign state. He wrote that holding a news conference on such a matter "is really just a form of grandstanding by Mr. Anderson for the press and the public."
A U.S. federal judge had in October asked the Vatican to cooperate in serving court papers to the pope and two other Vatican officials, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone and Cardinal Angelo Sodano. The Vatican is not obliged to comply with such requests.
Murphy, who died in 1998, has been accused of sexually abusing some 200 boys at the deaf school from 1950 to 1974. In 1996, Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland had complained about Murphy in a letter to the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, the powerful Vatican office led by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger from 1981 until he became pope in 2005.
That office initially ordered Weakland to hold a canonical trial against Murphy in 1997, but later changed course after a letter from the accused. The Vatican noted Murphy's advanced age, failing health and lack of further allegations.
The Vatican argues it's not liable for clerical sex-abuse cases under canon law and a church structure that holds bishops _ and not Rome _ responsible for disciplining pedophile priests.
Plaintiffs in a similar case in Oregon have sued the Vatican using a similar approach. Anderson represents clients in that proceeding as well, and on numerous occasions has expressed a desire to hold prominent Vatican leaders liable for sexual abuse by priests.

Vatican won't accept service of US child sex lawsuit; SNAP responds
Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 862 7688 home, 314 503 0003 cell, SNAPdorris@gmail.com)
There’s fighting fair and fighting dirty. The Vatican is fighting dirty.
Under harsh public scrutiny and criticism, the Pope promises last summer to “do everything possible” to heal victims. Then, when attention fades, he plays legal hardball and delays justice by arrogantly refusing service of a lawsuit – a simple move to help expedite a legal process.
This is the same stone-walling tactic Vatican bureaucrats used just two years ago to block Irish government investigators who were looking into cover ups of clergy child sex crimes in that nation.
The Vatican is rubbing salt into the deep wounds of clergy sex abuse victims while thumbing its nose at the American justice system.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We’ve been around for 22 years and have more than 10,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org)
