Cuomo's State of the State speech to set agenda for busy 2018 in Albany

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 01:03 PM PST

ALBANY (NY) The Buffalo News January 2, 2018 By Tom Precious ALBANY – With advance roll-outs of his State of the State proposals ending, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Wednesday moves onto the actual speech phase -- an address certain to be particularly scrutinized by the left and right in an election year for a governor who sees himself with national political ambitions. The governor, in both broad and specific brush strokes, will signal how the state can keep funding key programs in education and health care at a time when its deficit is project to be at least $4.4 billion. He is also expected to lay out changes in the state's tax code that will help thousands of New Yorkers restricted by the new federal tax law in their ability to fully deduct their state and local tax payments. While some takeaway is certain to focus on Cuomo's bashing of Washington as more fodder for a possible 2020 White House run, Cuomo allies insist the tax issue, for one, is a hyper-provincial one. "This is doing damage to New Yorkers and we have to deal with it. It's very local and very personal for all elected officials in New York to undo the damage that was put on the shoulders of New Yorkers by this federal tax law,'' said Sen. Jeff Klein, a Bronx Democrat and head of the Senate's Independent Democratic Conference.

Priest arrested for brutal murder of 11-yr-old Dalit boy

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:58 PM PST

INDIA Times of India January 1, 2018 By Kanwardeep Singh Shahjahanpur: With the arrest of a local priest, police claimed to have solved the brutal murder of an 11-year-old Dalit boy in a village in the district on Saturday. Police said the boy had seen the priest in an objectionable position with a woman, which lead to his murder. The case was solved within 24 hours with the help of investigation by additional superintendent of police (ASP) SC Shakya and the dog squad. The body of the boy, Amit Pal, was found in Pipri Kalan village of Katra area on Sunday morning. There were several stab wounds on the body, and his limbs were fractured. An FIR was registered against unidentified persons under section 302 (murder) of the IPC and investigations began. The ASP also arrived at the village and began investigating the murder. The postmortem was conducted by a panel of three doctors on Monday and found over 15 injuries on the throat, chest and abdomen. Police initially suspected the crime to be an act of revenge, but the boy's family said they had no enmity with anyone. On Sunday evening, the dog squad was called from Bareilly. Sniffer dog Diana, and her handler Kapil Dev, took a police team from the spot where the body was found to the hut of a local priest, Sua Lal.

When will US Jews confront sexual harassment and other abuses of power?

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:54 PM PST

ISRAEL The Jerusalem Post December 23, 2017 By Rafael Medoff Sexual harassment, perpetual one-man control, sky's-the-limit salaries – is there is a common denominator in all these abuses of power? More than two months have passed since the exposure of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual abuse set off a wave of similar revelations about other public figures and inspired a serious reckoning in American society. Sadly, no such reckoning is yet underway in the American Jewish community. In recent days, a few American Jewish institutions finally took some first, tentative steps toward addressing the issue. The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism terminated its relationship with a senior staff member after accounts surfaced of his sexual abuse of United Synagogue teens in the 1980s. The Jewish Museum of New York fired its director of public programs after several staff members reported he sexually harassed them. And the 92nd Street Y apparently has canceled a planned talk by Israeli author Ari Shavit, an admitted sexual harasser. But much more needs to be done. For example, is it plausible that not a single United Synagogue administrator, summer camp counselor, or other staff member ever heard anything about the multiple sex abuse incidents? The USCJ should commission a thorough independent review to determine who knew what, and when – and why nobody intervened. The 92nd Street Y episode likewise has so far provided more questions than answers. Which staff member came up with the idea of inviting Shavit, who just one year ago admitted to harassing multiple women? Which other staff members approved the invitation? What consequences will they face for their disgracefully poor judgment? Part of the problem the organized American Jewish community faces in addressing sexual harassment is the paucity of accountability mechanisms. For example, an American politician who engages in sexual harassment sooner or later will have to face the voters. In Alabama, enough citizens were repulsed by the evidence against Senate candidate Roy Moore to defeat him at the polls. By contrast, democratic elections are almost unheard of among American Jewish or Zionist organizations. The few token elections that are held often involve only one candidate, or are so heavily stacked in favor of the incumbent that the "voting" is a foregone conclusion. Something is very wrong in the Jewish community when the head of an organization can orchestrate changes in the group's bylaws to eliminate term limits and thereby entrench his power, or increase his own salary or other material benefits. Anyone who has spent time among the leaders of US Jewish or Zionist organizations knows that more than a few of them harbor a deep-seated sense of entitlement. Some see themselves virtually as presidents- for-life, much in the spirit of Third World tinhorn dictators. Many of them apparently also believe that they are entitled to wildly exorbitant salaries. According to The Forward's recently-published annual list of Jewish leaders' earnings, the top 30 are earning between $409,000 and $818,000 annually. The next 10 on the list are earning at least $308,000. And that doesn't include the many extra perks. Compare those figures to the salaries of, say, teachers in Jewish private schools. It says something about a community's values and priorities if those who spend their time making bombastic speeches and issuing verbose press releases are being paid 10 times as much as those who teach our children. The average salary for all private school teachers in the United States is just $47,000; and many Jewish day school teachers make far less than that. Sexual harassment, perpetual one-man control, sky's-the-limit salaries – is there is a common denominator in all these abuses of power? If so, perhaps it is the sense of entitlement, and the lack of accountability, that is all too pervasive among some American Jewish and Zionist leaders. Entitled to keep their jobs as long as they want. Entitled to take whatever level of salary they choose, rubber-stamped by their handpicked board members. Entitled to treat their staff members however they fancy, confident that those who fear being fired will never expose them. Obviously not every one of these characteristics applies to every leader of an American Jewish or Zionist organization. But enough of them apply for one to conclude that abuse of power in the organized American Jewish community is a problem that requires serious attention. What can be done? Here are a few initial suggestions.

Judge orders continued mediation to resolve Minnesota bankruptcy case

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:36 PM PST

ST. PAUL (MN) Catholic News Service January 2, 2018 By Maria Wiering ST. PAUL, Minn. (CNS) — The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis said a bankruptcy judge's decision that the archdiocese should return to mediation with the other involved parties "bolsters our resolve to move forward in the bankruptcy process." "We look to engage with all participants in mediation as directed by the judge to bring a prompt and fair resolution," Tom Abood, chairman of the archdiocese's Reorganization Task Force, said in a statement. Federal bankruptcy court Judge Robert Kressel Dec. 28 denied two competing plans that attempted to resolve the archdiocese's bankruptcy. He stated that he expected all parties to return to mediation. In a joint memorandum issued to the archdiocese and the Unsecured Creditors Committee, which includes clergy sexual abuse claimants, Kressel said he expected the parties "to mediate in good faith" to reach an agreement "providing appropriate and timely compensation to those who have suffered sexual abuse at the hands of those employed by or affiliated with the archdiocese." Abood said the archdiocese is "guided by (Kressel's) words from earlier this year, that the longer this process continues, the less money will be available for those who have been harmed." He added, "We note and are gratified that Judge Kressel has once again directly dismissed the assertions by creditors' counsel that the archdiocese has acted or is acting in bad faith regarding the reorganization." In his memorandum, Kressel expressed concern about the number of abuse claimants who have died since the archdiocese entered bankruptcy in January 2015, and that others may die as the reorganizations process "drags on." The judge said at least eight claimants have died, "essentially depriving them of meaningful compensation for the pain that they have endured." He emphasized that the bankruptcy case affects actual people, especially those who suffered abuse and those who must pay for others' actions. "While the creditors committee seeks retribution for the wrongs suffered by victims, none of the people who committed the abuse in the first place or exacerbated it in the second place will suffer," he wrote. "The financial cost of compensation falls not on any of these people, but a completely different group of people. It falls on current employees, including priests, teachers, coaches, and on retired school librarians and others who have worked for the archdiocese and the parishes and earned a modest retirement. "The cost may fall on students at Catholic schools and their parents. It will fall on thousands of parishioners. And the cost will be borne by beneficiaries of the charity and other good works by the archdiocese and the parishes," the memorandum continued.

Opinion: Media focus on Cardinal Law's death ignored his good works

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:33 PM PST

LOWELL (MA) The Lowell Sun January 1, 2018 Cardinal Bernard Law died recently, and media outlets couldn't wait to highlight his involvement with the child sex-abuse scandal. Pulling scabs and uncovering old wounds is what keeps them relevant, right? I was more recently gratified to read in The Sun that one victim of these undoubtedly horrific crimes hoped that Law was in purgatory and not in hell. For Catholics purgatory is a state where after dying one is "purged" of sin's effects in preparation for entry into heaven. In Tuesday's Sun I was similarly encouraged to read where a victim had forgiven Law and the clergy who actually abused him. The judicial system has the specific role of bringing to justice and punishment people who have committed crimes. Religious entities, on the other hand, have a quite different mission; to lead people to repentance and redemption. Besides, who of us can know Cardinal Law's intention when he transferred priests from parish to parish at the same time when the abuses were actually occurring? These were not uncovered until years later. So, I guess, to paraphrase what my sainted pastor, Rev. Father Lucien Loiselle at the former Saint Mary of the Assumption parish in Dracut, used to say at every Mass: "Pray for Cardinal Law and remember all the good that he did." MICHAEL LANGLOIS Dracut

Bernard Law’s Funeral and An Honest Proposal

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:32 PM PST

UNITED STATES Huffington Post January 1, 2018 By Sally Vance-Trembath Many found Bernard Law's Roman funeral deeply upsetting. There have been various responses to that Catholic funeral protocol: condemnation, explanation, justification. I suspect that actual victims of molestation and rape are not satisfied by details that describe who gets what kind of funeral. I worked with "The Voice of the Faithful" early on so I know something of victims and their families. The last thing they need or want to hear about is Catholic protocol. In many ways, such protocols acted as accelerants for their destruction. It must be harrowing to see any display of honor given to the person who destroyed your life. Clerical collars and vestments that should mark sacramental authority instead provided camouflage. And the camouflage was brilliant. The trappings of office and authority as instruments for the disturbing larceny of this Catholic Crisis. That is what I saw as I listened to victims during those years. Their capacity for intimacy had been stolen. That is how I think about the predators. They were thieves. In treating their victims' bodies as things, those villains robbed those young people of experiencing those same bodies as locations of tenderness and delight in physical love. So if we are going to talk about Catholic protocol, let's talk. Let us honestly bring the best of our protocol, in this case, our liturgical system to this persistent sorrow. Signs and symbols were used to spread this contagion; it is long past time that we used our symbolic, ritual tradition to promote healing on a massive scale. The damage is widespread; the repair must be so. As a theologian I must champion the deep truth that animated the funeral for Bernard Law: Catholic sacraments display an essential truth-claim that the Judeo-Christian tradition makes about reality: God's presence saturates all of our experience. We mark that truth in many ways; for Catholics the Sacraments are among our richest expressions. We need Sacraments; we are constitutively communitarian creatures.

'I'm not going to cry': Leonie Sheedy reveals personal pain in fight for sexual abuse survivors

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:30 PM PST

AUSTRLIA The Guardian January 2, 2018 By Melissa Davey A vocal supporter of the royal commission into child sexual abuse, Sheedy implored survivors to tell their story and to keep fighting for justice For the past five years Leonie Sheedy travelled around Australia urging survivors of childhood sexual abuse in orphanages and foster care to tell their stories to the child abuse royal commission. She was the vocal and visible presence outside the commission's public hearings, confronting politicians and holding placards. She stood in the glaring sun and pouring rain protesting against the leaders and institutions who failed children, demanding stories of abuse be recognised. But despite imploring survivors of abuse not to take their stories to their grave, it took the 63-year-old until the commission had almost finished its work in December to tell her own harrowing story of being abused while in care at the Sisters of Mercy St Catherine's Children's home in Geelong. "I'd say I've supported over 100 people to tell their story, and the oldest person I supported at the commission was 93," Sheedy told Guardian Australia, following the tabling of the royal commission's final report in December. "What happened as a result is I recognised I needed to ask for my own private session with the royal commissioners to tell my story."

Derry archbishop pledges help for abuse sufferers

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:27 PM PST

DERRY (IRELAND) Derry Now January 2, 2018 The Primate of All Ireland, Archbishop Eamon Martin, has pledged that the Catholic Church will play its part in raising awareness about domestic violence and abuse and in supporting anyone affected to access information confidentially. In a special New Year homily to be delivered today to mark the World Day of Peace, Dr Martin, the former principal of St Columb's College, also re-iterated Pope Francis's call to show compassion to refugees. Archbishop Martin said: "Organisations like Women's Aid alert us to the fact that at least 14% of all crime reported to the police last year was related to domestic violence with one call every 18 minutes. "The high levels of depression, addictions and anxiety in our country, and the frightening reality of domestic violence is not often spoken about openly, but it is an indication of the huge need that exists for inner peace and family reconciliation. "Just before Christmas, the Catholic and Church of Ireland Cathedral parishes here in Armagh came together for training in the Safe Church Initiative.

«Così Don Gianni abusò di noi»

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 12:20 PM PST

ITALY GQ Italia December 29, 2017 di Edoardo Montolli [Google Translate: The trial of Don Gianni, born Giovanni Trotta, expelled since 2012, who never stopped raping children] Il processo a Don Gianni, al secolo Giovanni Trotta, spretato dal 2012, che non smise mai di violentare bambini Indossava il clergy e si faceva chiamare Don Gianni. Anche se la Chiesa lo aveva già ridotto allo stato laicale, vietandogli di avvicinare i bambini della parrocchia. Segno, che evidentemente, anche prima di accuse ufficiali e processi, la curia conosceva bene le tendenze di Giovanni Trotta, 57 anni. Un uomo che, stando al racconto delle sue presunte vittime in aula, aveva in sé un indissolubile senso dell'impunità. È l'ultimo caso tutto italiano di un cancro che attanaglia la Chiesa cattolica da sempre. Nei giorni scorsi è morto a 86 anni Bernard Law, il cardinale di Boston, l'uomo che coprì per diciotto anni i preti seriali che abusarono di una quantità enorme di bambini e che lui, quando la situazione diventò ingestibile, si limitò a spostare di parrocchia in parrocchia. Come fece per padre John Geoghan, ritenuto responsabile di 130 violenze. Finché un giorno lo scandalo divampò – ci avrebbero fatto anche un film, Il caso Spotlight – e lui fu trasferito a Roma, con il prestigioso nuovo incarico di arciprete alla Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. Le esequie si sono tenute alla Basilica di San Pietro, come per tutti i cardinali, alla presenza di Papa Francesco. In quegli stessi giorni la commissione d'inchiesta del governo australiano ha stilato un rapporto sulla pedofilia nel Paese: il 60% dei casi trattati ha subito l'abuso in ambito religioso. Si parla di migliaia di bambini. Un altro cardinale, George Pell, arcivescovo emerito di Sidney, è ora accusato di aver coperto preti pedofili. Secondo il rapporto in alcune diocesi australiane il 15% dei sacerdoti è sospettato di pedofilia. E Pell stesso, cosa mai accaduta ad un cardinale, andrà a processo per un episodio di stupro.

La procura di Napoli Nord, diretta dal magistrato Giovanni Corona, ha disposto il sequestro del cellulare del prete contenente il messaggio intimidatorio per verificare se ci siano implicazioni da parte sua che costituiscono reato. Al contempo anche i cellulari dei due ragazzi saranno al vaglio del magistrato, che avrà la possibilità di visionarli già entro il prossimo mese.

ITALY Il Mattino December 31, 2017 di Mena Grimaldi [Google Translate: SUCCIVO - Investigation of the scandal that struck at the beginning of December on the Church of the Transfiguration of Succivo expands, leading to the home of Mario Donadio and Yevheneik Borysyuk, aged 22 and 24, on charges of attempting to extort money to the parish priest, Don Crescenzo Abbate, to avoid publishing a hard video. The carabinieri of Marcianise's company, directed by the captain Luca D'Alessandro, in fact, have also kidnapped the cell phone of the priest, meanwhile suspended from his duties by the bishop of Aversa, Monsignor Angelo Spinillo. ] SUCCIVO - Si amplia l'indagine sullo scandalo che si è abbattuto a inizio dicembre sulla chiesa della Trasfigurazione di Succivo che ha portato ai domiciliari Mario Donadio e Yevheneik Borysyuk, di 22 e 24 anni, con l'accusa di aver tentato di estorcere del denaro al parroco, don Crescenzo Abbate, per evitare di pubblicare un video hard. I carabinieri della compagnia di Marcianise, diretti dal capitano Luca D'Alessandro, infatti, hanno sequestrato anche il cellulare del sacerdote, nel frattempo sospeso dalle sue funzioni dal vescovo di Aversa, Monsignor Angelo Spinillo. Sequestro disposto dal magistrato della Procura di Napoli Nord, Giovanni Corona, che sta svolgendo un'indagine a 360 gradi. Vista la delicatezza del caso, gli inquirenti vogliono capire se vi siano state anche responsabilità che costituiscano reato da parte del prete. Responsabilità non solo legate all'episodio della denuncia per estorsione sporta dal sacerdote nei confronti dei due ragazzi, ma capire se vi siano stati in precedenza contatti anche con adolescenti di età inferiore ai 18 anni. Al momento sul tavolo non vi sarebbero elementi concreti che porterebbero in questa direzione, ma la scrupolosità della Procura e degli investigatori non sta lasciando nulla al caso. Solo l'analisi tecnica dello smartphone del parroco - molto chiacchierato già prima che lo scandalo raggiungesse le cronache nazionali - metterà un punto fermo sulla questione. Così come saranno fondamentali, per quanto riguarda i fatti legati all'estorsione, i risultati che i consulenti stanno svolgendo sui cellulari dei due ragazzi, sequestrati subito dopo l'arresto, il 5 dicembre scorso, e che dovrebbero arrivare sul tavolo del magistrato il prossimo mese.

REPORT AFFIRMS DUTCH CHURCH HANDLING OF ABUSE CASES

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 08:31 AM PST

The Netherlands The Tablet January 2, 2018 By Tom Heneghan A special independent foundation overseeing the Dutch Church's response to past clerical sexual abuse has concluded that its programmes have provided victims with "recognition, satisfaction and help" including 28.6 million euros in compensation. Presenting its final report, it said the programmes set up after a shocking 2011 inquiry into scandals from 1945 to the present had dealt with 3,712 reports of abuse. Of these, 2,062 led to formal complaints that a special panel examined. In 941 cases, compensation - which was capped at 100,000 euros for the gravest abuse - was paid. Some reports led to offers of psychological treatment for victims, others were turned down as unfounded or inadmissible. Receiving the report in mid-December, Cardinal Archbishop Willem Eijk of Utrecht said the Church, by establishing the lay-run foundation, "wanted to openly face up to a black page in its history". The foundation, which handled complaints and compensation as well as dialogue with victims and officialdom, began work after a Church-appointed inquiry found that tens of thousands of children had been sexually abused in Catholic orphanages, boarding schools and seminaries since the Second World War.

Former Kirk moderator Dr Andrew McLellan hits out over "astonishing" delay in abuse response from Catholic Church

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 08:29 AM PST

SCOTLAND The Sunday Herald January 2, 2018 By Stephen Naysmith THE Catholic Church has been accused of failing to establish contact with victims of historic child abuse as it pledged to do in response to an independent review. The Very Reverend Dr Andrew McLellan, a former Church of Scotland moderator who carried out an independent external review of child protection and safeguarding policies within the Catholic Church, said it was "astonishing" no contact had been made with victims' groups. When The McLellan Commission report was delivered in 2015, the Catholic Church pledged to implement all of its findings. These included a pledge that "justice must be done and justice must be seen to be done for those who have been abused and for those against whom allegations of abuse are made". However, a spokesperson for the Catholic Church insisted "interaction with survivors continues" and contact by its very nature was confidential. The spokesperson said: "The Church is now close to full implementation of the recommendations contained in the McLellan report. "Safeguarding guidelines have been comprehensively revised and updated, while interaction with survivors continues. "Crucially, no individual or organisation has a monopoly on survivor representation or interaction. Contact with survivors, by its nature confidential, is taking place across the Church. Many survivors do not identify with or join national groups and such groups should not presume to speak for them." Archbishop Philip Tartaglia, as president of the Bishops' Conference, apologised to anyone who had been harmed or who had suffered in any way as a result of actions by anyone within the Catholic Church. He added: "We apologise to those who have found the Church's response slow, unsympathetic or uncaring and reach out to them as we take up the recommendations of the McLellan commission." The Church says it has set up an independent review group headed by Baroness Helen Liddell to take forward the commission's recommendations and claims it has been consulting with survivors. But Dr McLellan said it was extraordinary that, more than two years after the publication of his report, groups representing victims of abuse are yet to meet with the review group, and claim they have had little meaningful contact from bishops and the Church.

London Catholic school abuse survivor speaks of 'constant violence'

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 08:26 AM PST

LONDON (ENGLAND) The Guardian January 1, 2018 By Harriet Sherwood Man says 'you couldn't escape' violence at St Benedict's school where former headmaster has been jailed for sexually abusing boys A man who was abused as a child at a Catholic school in London has spoken of a "culture of violence" at the institution, where a former headmaster was jailed just before Christmas for rape and other sexual offences. "The threat and infliction of violence was constant. You couldn't escape it – it was completely normalised," said the survivor, who gave evidence in court against Andrew Soper, known as Father Laurence. The former headmaster of St Benedict's middle school, who later became abbot of Ealing Abbey in west London, is thought to be the most senior Catholic priest to be convicted of sex crimes in the UK. He is the fourth person to be convicted of sexual abuse committed at St Benedict's. "There wouldn't be a day when there wasn't a queue of boys outside [Soper's] study to be caned," said "Peter", who asked not to be identified. During the two years Peter was a pupil at the school, Soper "molested me as often as possible". Peter thought no one would believe his word against that of a priest. The abuse "was accepted, it was the norm, it was routine. Everybody had been into Father Laurence's study. I realised it had happened to lots of boys before me and would happen to lots of boys after me." Peter, whose family were staunch Catholics, won a place at the fee-paying St Benedict's at the age of 11 in 1979. "It was a culture shock, coming from a normal, relaxed primary school." One of his earliest experiences was getting into trouble in class. The teacher, a lay member of staff, made the 11-year-old kneel in front of the class and conducted the rest of the lesson standing on Peter's hands.

Support line for North Yorkshire school abuse victims

Posted: 02 Jan 2018 08:23 AM PST

YORK (ENGLAND) The York Press January 2, 2018 By Dan Bean A YORK charity has launched a special helpline to support victims of child abuse at schools under investigation in North Yorkshire. Survive, which was started in the city in 1990 to help men and women who were abused as children, is running the helpline during the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse at Ampleforth and Ealing Abbey and College, run by the Roman Catholic Benedictine Congregation. So far, more than 4,000 documents are on record in the review, with material from police forces, The Independent Schools Inspectorate and the Charity Commission, and Dani Wardman from the charity said she expected calls to the organisation to increase as the inquiry continues. The support line went live at the end of November, run by trained Survive staff, available from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, and is set to be in place until the end of March next year. Dani said: "When abuse stories dominate the headlines we often forget the impact this has on the victims. It is a significant step that Ampleforth and now Ealing have recognised the importance of providing support to those who have suffered sexual abuse under their care. "It is impossible to predict numbers of calls but the first step is getting the phone number into the public domain. Survive are here to support Survivors of sexual violence and we really hope those who have experienced this at Ampleforth or Ealing know they can give us a call."
