Pope's advisor on Pedophilia arrested as a crazy Pedophile
The latest sex-abuse case to rock the Catholic Church is unfolding in the archdiocese of an influential Italian Cardinal who has been working with Pope Benedict XVI on reforms to respond to prior scandals of pedophile priests.
ather Riccardo Seppia, a 51-year-old parish priest in the village of Sastri Ponente, near Genoa, was arrested last Friday, May 13, on pedophilia and drug charges. Investigators say that in tapped mobile-phone conversations, Seppia asked a Moroccan drug dealer to arrange sexual encounters with young and vulnerable boys. "I do not want 16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for needy boys who have family issues," he allegedly said. Genoa Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, who is the head of the Italian Bishops Conference, had been working with Benedict to establish a tough new worldwide policy, released this week, on how bishops should handle accusations of priestly sex abuse.
According to investigators, Seppia told a friend — a former seminarian and barman who is currently under investigation — that the town's malls were the best places to entice minors. In tapped phone conversations the two cursed and swore against God. The priest is charged with having attempted to kiss and touch an underage altar boy and of having exchanged cocaine for sexual intercourse with boys over 18.
Seppia's defense lawyers are expected to argue that those conversations — monitored since Oct. 20, 2010 — were just words, sex games that were played by adults. It was just a game even when he claimed to have "kissed on the mouth" a 15-year-old altar boy, according to the defense.
Questioned by the investigators, the altar boy reportedly confirmed the attempted kiss. Another male minor who, according to the investigators, was stalked with messages and pressing invitations, will be questioned soon. Psychologists are helping Carabinieri police officers obtain testimony from the alleged victims. "The boys are ashamed to talk and to admit what happened," says one of the investigators. The evidence amounts to at least 50 messages and phone calls. In the tapped phone conversations, the drug dealer contacted the boys and gave their phone numbers to the priest, who paid them with cocaine or 50 euros each time for sexual intercourse.
"[The investigators] made us listen to that man saying terrifying things about our children. Things so terrible that I cannot repeat them," a father of one of the boys said.
That's pretty horrible, but there's a little bit more to the story. Seems that this creepy old fucker is also HIV positive, and knows it.
Even more shocking than the news just reported that a priest in the archdiocese of a top advisor to the Pope on the Vatican’s pedophilia scandal was arrested on pedophilia and drug charges is the news now that the priest is HIV positive and knowingly had unprotected sex, and may have had orgies with a minor.
Father Riccardo Seppia, a 51-year-old parish priest, lived a “life of sexual obsession, drug delirium,” according to a translation of Italian news site La Reppublica. “Unprotected sex? “Yes, but …” admits Don Sepia. If during the investigation, in the hands of policemen led by captain Paul Belgians, were to emerge the transmission of HIV to some partners, the file would add the crime of injury and attempted murder.”
Seriously, when are we going to force the Catholic Church to disband?
