Jalandhar Bishop raped, Kerala nun complained, Police action taken, but, the Vatican, CBCI and others want to cover up! [2]

Pope, Cardinal, bishop - in India what they do

Letters and documentary evidences prove the men rea of the rapist bishop: In a July 12, 2018 letter to Cardinal Oswald Gracias of Mumbai, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India, and another of the same date to Archbishop Giambattista Diquattro, apostolic nuncio to India, 168 people asked for action against Bishop Franco Mulakkal of Jalandhar[1]. The letter asked Archbishop Diquattro to “advise Pope Francis to relieve the bishop concerned of his pastoral responsibilities so that the Church is seen to actually practice the zero tolerance it professes to observe in abuse cases.” The signatories include representatives of the Indian Theological Association, a forum of Catholic theologians; the Forum of Religious for Justice and Peace, an advocacy group for women religious; the Indian Christian Women’s Movement, a national conference of women religious and others; and the interdenominational United Christian Forum for Human Rights[2].

Nuns talked ill of raped nun supporting rapist-bishop 12-07-2018

Sister Rejeena Kadamthottu, Mother General of the diocese accuses raped nun: Serious allegations were raised against the nun who brought out sexual abuse allegations at Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal by Sister Rejeena Kadamthottu, Mother General of the diocese, in which the nun belongs[3]. She told Mathrubhumi News that the she had received a complaint that the nun, who filed complaint against the bishop, had maintained illicit relationship with another person[4]. The Mother General said that the nun’s relative in Delhi submitted the complaint that the nun had illicit relationship with her husband. In the complaint, the relative alleged that the nun and her husband were involved in an illicit relationship and hence she was on the verge of committing suicide. As this complaint was beyond her authority, she handed over the complaint to Bishop Franco Mulakkal who heads the Diocese. “Subsequently, the church conducted a probe over this. But the nun was not ready to cooperate with the probe,” Sister Rejeena said. She also alleged that the nun has come up with allegations against the Bishop fearing disciplinary action. “The nun gave the letter raising allegations against the Bishop in June 2018. However, I have not received any such complaints against the Bishop before. Nobody had bad opinion about the Bishop,” Sister Rejeena said.

Sister Regeena’s campaigm appears disgusting, unbecoming and anti-woman: Ironically, this news appears to be planted as it is none of Regeena’s business to research into another woman’s personal life, when, she does not bother about the complaint made now[5]. One woman wanted to have sex with another man or not does not give any authority for Franco bishop to rape a nun for one or many times. As a woman, that too with authority of “The Mother General” and all, it is unbecoming for her to speak before the media degrading womanhood[6]. In fact, she should have felt ashamed for the behaviour of the Cardinals, bishops, pastors and other priests who are continuously involved in many crimes[7]. Thus, the nuns supporting the rapist bishop on one or the other pretext is  disgusting, unbecomibg and anti-woman, when the Christian missionaries, propagandidst organizations and others have been aggressively campaiging as if they are the sole selling agents of human rights, women rights, child rights and so on!

Bishop, cardinal and nun

The taped conversation between the nun and the Cardinal released – 19-07-2018: The conversation on a four-minute audio tape surfaced a day after Alencherry told investigators that he had not received any sexual assault complaint from the nun. Hindustan Times could not independently ascertain the authenticity of the audio-taped conversation. But the 43-year-old nun is heard complaining against Mulackkal in the purported conversation that took place in December, six months before she registered a police complaint, accusing Mulakkal of raping her 13 times between 2014 and 2106. Alencherry is heard saying on the purported tape that he will say he was unaware of any complaint if the police approached him. He is heard advising the nun to settle everything on her own and not to drag others into it. The police have found he was at the convent when the nun was allegedly raped after checking the visitors’ diary. The police have recorded the nun’s statement before a magistrate court. They have also rec- orded statements of other nuns and employees at the convent.

Jimmy Poochakkat accepted the tape conversation, but, as usual claimed that it was edited[8]: Syro-Malabar Church spokesman Father Jimmy Poochakkat admitted the two spoke in December, but insisted the audio taped conversation had been edited to defame the church[9]. “It seems the conversation is not complete. It is being used to show the church in a bad light.” If that is the case, again, it is proven that the whole affairs of rapping is well known to the Church, even at higest authority, yet, they wanted / want to suppress the sexual crimes. Moreover, he should come out with the facts, who are interested in editing such tapes. Alencherry reiterated he had never received any sexual abuse complaint from the nun when Vaikkoam deputy superintendent of police K Subhash-led police team recorded his statement. “The cardinal had informed us that the nun had told him about some issues at her convent. However, he did not receive any complaint of sexual assault,” said Subhash. The nun has maintained she was forced to approach the police after many including Alencherry ignored her complaints. The nun’s father and brother also claimed to have complained to the church superiors. The nun, who is also a mother superior, is a Punjab-based Missionaries of Jesus congregation member. She was heading one of the two convents the congregation runs in Kerala. She alleged Mulakkal had raped her at the convent’s guest house. The police are yet to question Mulakkal, who has pleaded innocence saying he was being implicated for exposing financial irregularities at the convent.

Christian-watch forums are alerted and disturbed by such sexploitation and suppression of evidences[10]: UCAN News reported as follows[11], “A TV channel in Kerala has released a recording claimed to be of a telephone conversation between Cardinal Alencherry and the nun.The nun is heard referring to the continued harassment she and others suffer within the congregation, and the cardinal suggested she complain to Latin-rite bishops’ conference head Cardinal Oswald Gracias of Mumbai. The nun then seeks his help to get an appointment with Cardinal Gracias but Cardinal Alencherry refuses to do so. “You go to Mumbai and approach him directly,” the cardinal says”. The other Christian agencies have also been conciously worried about the revealing Christian sex crimes[12].  As Indian press has been so secular, liberal and has freedom, pehaps, it has started slowly bringing out facts. Or a situation has reached that the true Christians themselves cannot tolerate such crimes have been hoing on with the support of higher authorities like the cardinals and the Vatican[13]. Thus, it is amply proved to show how the Church and the Vatican run a parallel government controlling the Christians and protecting the criminals of all sorts, just to save bthe name of Christianity and the Vatican.

Jalandhar Bishop raped, Kerala nun complained, Police action taken, but, the crimes are analyzed between Vatican and Indian authorities! [1]

Kerala church crimes increasing

Is God’s own country becoming rape and sexlpoitation state?: Kerala, the highly literate state in India has been known for “nunnery” discussed in 1980s, Abhaya rape-murder case in 1990s and now series of rape, sexploitation and multiple sexual activities of bishop, pastors and priests. The Communist government of Kerala, the secular Congress or the most secular Universities of Kerala have not been discussing and debating about theses issues. Franco Mulakkal, a Kerala bishop has been accused of sexually abusing a Catholic nun for many times. As at one stage, she could not tolerate, she complained to the Church authorities and as usual, they did not bother, as it would tarnish the image of the Church. As the CBCI, Cardinal and other higher religious orders did not bother, she complained to the police. As the police started investigation, slowly, the details are going to press and hence news is appearing. Though, the church always tries to treat it as “internal affair” to be settled amicably, the issue is treated in common, as many women are subjected to such exploitation. Moreover, there has been involvement of five priests raping a nun, who came for confession.

Does the rape-Bishop want to take asylum in Vatican and denial of charges: Here in this case, Franco Mulakkal denied the accusation of the nun. As news came that he might take asylum in Vatican to escape from rape charges, as the law has become active after “Nirbhaya rape case.” Nowadays, the Vatican has been so lenient to sex-cardinals, sex-bishops, sex-rapists of all orders of the church and the such sex clergy has been embolden to seek asylum in foreign countries and Vatican itself, to escape from the criminal and judicial proceedings of the respective countries, Thus, Franco stated denying the charges of “fleeing to Vatican”. When, the “running away news” appeared, he once again denied the charges on 12-07-2018, Thursday and the reports of his moving to the Vatican[1]. Even as a special probe team mounted a detailed investigation against Franco Mulakkal, the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jalandhar in Punjab, he dismissed any plans of going away anywhere[2].

Jalandhar Bishop filed complaint against nun

Kerala police alerted immigration authorities about Franco Mulakkal: It was reported earlier on 12-07-2018 Thursday the Kerala Police had written to immigration authorities to prevent Mulakkal from leaving India[3]. Apprehension that the bishop, having international connections, may leave the country to evade arrest has prompted police to write such a letter to the immigration department, the official said[4]. “We have written to the immigration requesting them not to allow the bishop to leave the country,” said a police officer supervising the investigation. Apprehension that the bishop, having international connections, may leave the country to evade arrest has prompted police to write such a letter to the immigration department, the official said[5]. The decision would be taken after investigation and collection of evidences from Jalandhar[6].

Franco mulakkal, rapist-bishop 12-07-2018

The raped nun had to complain to the Cardinal, who has already been involved in criminal and fraudulent cases: Ironically, the nun had first lodged her complaint against Bishop Mulakkal with te Major Archbishop Cardinal Mar George Alencherry, head of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, who is accused of involvement in a mega land scam in his Ernakulam-Angamaly Archdiocese[7]. A complaint is pending with the Kochi Police seeking legal action against the Cardinal for not alerting the authorities even after getting a complaint on a serious offence like rape from a nun[8]. So, how such accused authorities, criminally tarnished priests and others could sit and take decision judiciously? Will justice would be delivered properly and faithfully.Moreover, how and why, they could run state within the state, when law-enforcing authorities are there – like many questions start raising in the minds of common people of India. Many wonder how law of this land could differ rapists of different religions are treated differently. In Nirbhaya case, one Muslim escaped punishment on the plea that he was a “minor” while raping! So also, here, the rapist has been a bishop.

Franco claimed that the police did not come to him: The Bishop told a Malayalam TV channel in his office in Jalandhar that he has not even been contacted by the police[9]. He also said he has not applied for any anticipatory bail[10], “because he has done no wrong”. “I now hear reports that I am trying to run away to Vatican. I wish to state that I am very much here (Jalandhar) and all such reports are baseless and am not running anywhere,” he said[11]. Trouble began for the bishop when a Catholic nun alleged that she was sexually abused by him several times between 2014 and 2016. The nun went to the police on June 29 with her accusations and submitted a 72-page statement. According to police reports, the nun produced documentation and other evidence for her case[12]. Police authorities said she provided details of 13 instances when she was allegedly abused by the accused from 2014-2016. An FIR was registered against the bishop and a 114-page detailed statement was taken from the nun. Mulakkal, for his part, maintains that he has done “no wrong at all” and that the nun took part in several functions besides travelling with him.”She also took part in the functions after the death of my mother. I have no clue on why all this has surfaced,” added the bishop. The probe team has so far collected evidences from a convent near Kottayam, where the bishop is alleged to have abused the nun.

Bishop, cardinal and nun- ShankNaad

Why the Vatican, CBCI and others have been senseless and try to cover up?: Vatican will not act immediately against Jalandhar bishop Franco Mulakkal against whom a nun has levelled rape allegations[13]. It is learnt that CBCI and Vatican Nuncio are carefully watching the situation[14].”At present, Vatican is not planning any action against the bishop. Normally, Vatican does not interfere with the law and order of a foreign country,” said a priest from Punjab.”Earlier, Vatican had removed a North Indian bishop from his post on the basis of sexual assault allegations against him. The action was taken on the recommendation from Vatican Nuncio. But the Church didn’t get any proper evidence and the Nuncio had received numerous complaints against the action,” said the priest. “Every time, Vatican studies the matter in detail before taking any action. Earlier, Vatican had immediately removed Kerala bishop John from his post similar allegations. But there was no police case of complaint into it,” said a senior priest from the Syro Malabar Church. “We have received information that Vatican Nuncio has already informed Vatican about the issue. Vatican is also watching whether the state or central government in India has taken any action against the bishop,” said the priest. Meanwhile, a group of nuns, priests and laity members of the Roman Catholic Church has written to the Vatican over the nun’s allegations, urging it to provide justice to the women in the Church. It will also be forwarded to Vatican Nuncio Giambattista Diquttro and Catholic Bishop Conference of India (CBCI) president Cardinal Oswald Gracious.

Maintenance of records, auditing etc of “Nirmal Hriday” and “Ministries of Charities” have been irregular, dubious and suspicious exhibiting rot!

July 9, 2018

Maintenance of records, auditing etc of “Nirmal Hriday” and “Ministries of Charities” have been irregular, dubious and suspicious exhibiting rot!

Missionaries of chrity, Ranchi- baby selling-nuns-2

Maintenance of records, auditing etc of “Nirmal Hriday” have been fishy: The Missionaries of Charity, which is facing charges of selling newborns to childless couples, has not been able to provide records of births by 280 women at its various homes here, police said on 08-07-2018, Saturday[1]. According to police sources, 450 pregnant women were admitted in various homes, run by the order founded by St Teresa, here between 2015 and 2018, but there are records of only 170 childbirths and no information about the remaining 280[2]. First of all, 450 pregnant women were admitted, how such documents were available could be noted. For 170 deliveries, the required medical instruments, medicines, disposables and other materials could have been accounted. Similarly, for the balance 280, anybody can audit the records and materials available there. In fact, the 280 pregnant cannot lie that they were not pregnant or they did not deliver babies. Therefore, definitely, something wrong with the “Missionaries of Charities.” If they could suppress and destroy all the evidences, then, the issue becomes really serious. Really, it is intriguing to note how these could happen with such internationally famous and well-supported by so many experts.

Missionaries of chrity, Ranchi- baby selling-nuns-3

About missing 280 kids, there were no records, discrepancies in the records – and the incidences occurring thereof: “We are investigating all angles… of the sale of children to childless couple. We have gone through records of the pregnant women and newborn babies. There are discrepancies in the records,” a police official investigating the case told IANS[3]. That there have been “discrepancies in records” prove the existence of documents, partial production and suppression of documents. The scam came to light when the couple, who had taken a newborn from the charity home in May, complained that they had paid Rs 1.20 lakh for medical care and delivery of the child, but the baby was taken back by the charity home with assurances of returning it back after court procedures[4]. The couple complained to the Child Welfare Society after they failed to get the child[5]. According to police, the incident is a case of human trafficking and they are trying to reach its roots[6]. That the nuns [Sister Koncilia / Koshleniea and Anima Indwar] involved have been arrested[7] while another Madhu is still free[8], four babies were sold etc., have already been reported. Now, the investigation, reporting, and discussion are turning towards missing kids and documents[9]. “An FIR has been lodged under Section 370 of the IPC”, said Kotwali Officer-in-Charge Shyamanand Mandal. Section 370 pertains to trafficking of persons.

Missionaries of chrity, Ranchi- Koncilia

Why inconsistent reporting, passing remarks etc: A mentally challenged woman, staying in a Missionaries of Charity facility on Jail Road here, delivered a baby on 07-07-2018[10], Friday but sisters at the home insisted that the newborn should be left there only, the woman’s mother alleged[11]. Here, why the words of the mother of the mentally challenged woman would be taken into account is not known. Such  inconsistent reports have been intriguing. The nexus of the Social welfare department, police and others are also visibly understandable. Under the guise of doing service, such activities cannot be criminal and against acts and Rules. When all have been going on in the name of God, it cannot be accepted. The CWC members also should be consistent in their approach in dealing with the issue, instead of confusing the issue, so that the Charities, authorities and others could take advantage. The unwed mothers, babies living here and sold and all the involved would be affected ultimately.

Missionaries of chrity, Ranchi- baby selling-nuns-4

Report of 280 missing kids from missionaries of Charity home untrue: Cops: While all these reports have been based on IANS, Times of India gives different version of the missing kids as follows.  Ranchi SSP Anish Gupta said, “We are investigating the matter but the reports of 280 children missing are not true. There are no such records.” Such reports began to do the rounds after a nun and an employee of Nirmal Hriday, a Missionaries of Charity shelter home at Jail Road here, were arrested last week for allegedly selling a child of an unwed mother for 1.2 lakh to a Uttar Pradesh-based couple. Reporting that there were “No records,” or the report that “no records” were there is “untrue” are to be taken differently? What we have to worry about the fact of missing kinds, than about the maintenance or non-maintenance or missing of maintained records. Though such exigencies “the maintenance or non-maintenance or missing of maintained record” are also against Act and Rules, how they did raise many questions.

Missionaries of chrity, Ranchi- Child welfare Committee,

An inquiry commission to look into the activities of children homes and shelters located at various places in the state: To avoid a repetition of Nirmal Hriday-type incidents in future, Jharkhand State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (JSCPCR) wrote to chief secretary Sudhir Tripathi asking him to set up an inquiry commission to look into the activities of children homes and shelters located at various places in the state[12]. This appears clearly that these groups started playing politics and the commission means allowing the issue to die a natural death or covering up the whole issue. JSCPCR chairperson Aarti Kujur said[13], “If there is a discrepancy at one shelter home, other centres may too have such problems. We want the government to find out the status of unwed mothers and records of children born at shelter homes.” As regards the sale of Nirmal Hriday children, CWC chairperson Rupa Kumari said, “Police are investigating the matter. Our units spread across the state will start collecting reports on shelter homes as soon as we receive instructions from the government.” Earlier this week, another CWC member Tanushree Sarkar said, After the incident in one branch, we cannot trust the other branches of Missionaries of Charity and we will not be sending children to them for shelter from now on.”

Missionaries of chrity, Ranchi- baby selling-nuns

From adoption to baby selling: St. Teresa, who died in 1997, established the Missionaries of Charity in 1950 and now has more than 3,000 nuns operating the sisterhood globally – following in her footsteps to provide soup kitchens, hospices, schools, leper colonies and homes for forsaken minors. The charity also offers shelter for unmarried women, but no longer facilitates adoptions. Once plagued by lengthy wait times, stringent laws and hefty costs, the Indian government sought to streamline the process in 2015 by moving the system online with a national database of the tens of thousands of available children[14]. The Missionaries of Charity however, opposed the changes on the basis it gave leeway for single women and unmarried couples to adopt[15]. And despite efforts to make Indian adoptions more transparent, the black market continues to thrive as prospective parents often find it easier to skirt the legal system and adopt directly from hospitals or orphanages, exacerbating the trade in child trafficking. The State Commission for Protection of Child Rights shot a letter to Jharkhand chief secretary Sudhir Tripathi to investigate into the functioning of all shelters on Saturday amid allegations of child sale racket against the functionaries of Nirmal Hriday, the shelter run by Missionaries of Charity here in Ranchi[16].

“Mother” Theresa’ Missionaries of Charities involved in baby-selling., two Nuns have been arrested!

July 6, 2018

“Mother” Theresa’ Missionaries of Charities involved in baby-selling., two Nuns have been arrested!

Nirmal Hridhay - baby selling - 06-07-2018-5

The Missionaries of Charities involved in “baby selling”: The home in eastern India’s Jharkhand state is run by Missionaries of Charity, the order set up by Mother Teresa to provide shelter for pregnant and unmarried women and their children[1]. For the services rendered by her much publicity was given and noble prize was also awarded. However, there had been allegations and accusations that she was helping pedophiles by allowing them to exploit the children in the orphanages. In fact, India has been exploited by the American and European pedophiles using “Sex tourism ” being carried on by the Missionaries, as has been exposed already by many cases that have gone up to Supreme court of India. In the present case, Indian police officer Aman Kumar said at least six babies have been sold to childless couples[2]. He said: “We are investigating to see how the operation was run and how many more children have been given away in the last few years.” The Missionaries of Charity did not respond to calls for comment. Arti Kujur, head of the Jharkhand State Child Protection Society, said the home was charging between £450 = Rs. 30,000/-  and more than £1,000 = Rs. 70,000/- for each baby, depending on what the childless couple could afford[3]. The money was reportedly paid as hospital fees.

Nirmal Hridhay - baby selling - 06-07-2018-2

The Nun involved has been a habitual offender caught only now: A member of the committee, Pratima Tiwari, told The Times of India that they realised a baby boy was missing during a routine inspection[4]. The Child Welfare Committee chairperson alleged that she filed a complaint after the couple – to whom the accused had given the child to – asked her to intervene, PTI reported. “The Uttar Pradesh-based family claimed that Anima Indwar, who handed over the child to them on May 14, 2018 called them up on July 1, 2018 and asked them to visit the shelter home for completing certain formalities,” Verma said. “When the child was brought to the shelter home, Indwar took the boy away.” She alleged that the accused had committed more crimes of this nature[5]. As more babies were reportedly sold, it is evident that the nun in question has been habitual offender, but, caught only now, because of the complaint and exposure. The child is currently in a government shelter for children.

Four babies were sold recently: According to the police, the two nuns allegedly sold four babies in Jharkhand as well as Uttar Pradesh[6]. This suggests that it was an inter-state child trafficking racket that the nuns were part of. The Church, school, convent, nunnery and the priests all keeping together nearby has been the root cause of all sorts of sexual related offences, crimes and violations, as being reported in the media and facts. As such crimes have been repeatedly appearing in media for the last 40 years and they have been increasing day by day, the matter should have been taken seriously. Unfortunately, in India, because of secularism, whenever, any crime is involved with the Christians and Muslims, they are treated differently. Even if they are suppressed and forgotten, the law enforcing authorities do not bother and the media, just covers up and keepm quite, as if nothing happens! Ranchi Deputy Superintendent of Police Shyamanand Mandal was quoted by news agency ANI as saying, “These nuns sold four babies – three in Jharkhand and one in Uttar Pradesh. Further investigation is underway.” An FIR has been registered under section 370 of the Indian Penal Code[7]. The FIR was reportedly registered by the Child Welfare Committee of Ranchi after an inspection.

After adoption, they adopted and adapted the “baby selling” as easy method: Kujur said: “We had been receiving many complaints regarding the functioning of this home and were keeping a close watch on them for nearly six months.” The Missionaries of Charity stopped organising adoptions in India in 2015 saying they disagreed with government rules that made it easier for single, divorced, and separated people to adopt children[8]. Kujur said his organisation had directed that the credentials of every home run in the state should be checked. “We hear that babies are being sold in other homes as well and are determined to put a stop to it.” After the exploitation of adoption methods and export of children to foreign countries, perhaps, the Missionaries of Charity have found put a new method to sell babies. Here, the babies of unwed mothers are taken and sold. “Unwed mothers” raise many questions, as the “Nirmal Hridhay” itself has such categories. In other words, such women cannot beget children, unless, they are impregnated and it is possible only by men. Then, who are such men allowed to mate with such women, how and why they are allowed and such other questions arise. It is a serious issue, as prostitution is also allowed in such transactions.

Sister Koncilia, a nun at Missionaries of Charity’s Nirmal Hriday home,  was arrested: Sister Koncilia, a nun at Missionaries of Charity’s Nirmal Hriday home, was arrested on 06-07-2018, Thursday for allegedly selling a child of an unwed mother[9]. Ranchi SSP Anish Gupta said, “Two arrests have been made. A worker at the home was arrested on 05-07-2018, Wednesday. We have also got the details of three children who were sold by them to different couples. We are in the process of verifying their addresses.” Nirmal Hriday, at Ranchi’s Jail Road, offers shelter for unwed minor mothers and differently-abled people. The home had 11 pregnant girls and around 75 differently-abled persons living there. Sister Koncilia was the head of the unwed mothers section[10].

11 pregnant women found shifted: CWC member Tanushree Sarkar said, “We have moved the 11 girls to Karuna Shelter home and sealed that section of Nirmal Hriday. The other section does not come under our jurisdiction, but we will try to get it sealed.” The committee will be shifting around 70 children who have been given shelter in Nirmal Shishu Bhavan, another branch of the organisation situated at Hinoo, to other homes on Friday. Sarkar said, “After the incident in one branch, we cannot trust the other branches of Missionaries of Charity and we will not be sending children to them for shelter from now on.” Sarkar said of the 11 pregnant girls at the home, at least three were never produced at CWC. “As per the law, any minor child in need of care and protection should first be produced before the committee,” she said. However, why the Missionaries of Charities have not been following rules and regulations and the CWC could only now point out. Had all been faithful enough to law of the land, they must have followed. Not that only, when, something has come out, all issues should be discussed, lacunae detailed and crimes committed demonstrated.

What Christians and minorities should ponder over and do?:

  1. The issues – Selling of Babies, that too, born to unwed mothers are treated differently in many countries, including India.
  2. The child trafficking, women trafficking and related crimes have been so serious and it is ridiculous to note that they are covered up by the Christians and other minorities under the guise of minority status or secularism or otherwise.
  3. Suppression of such crimes could only spoil their society and as well ass Indian society.
  4. The babies taking birth outside wedlock, before marriage etc., only expose the vulnerability of women, nuns etc., treated in the Christian and catholic churches.
  5. The recent catholic priests raping faithful ladies expose such inhuman practices.
  6. Maximum, the church authorities have bee trying to cover-up, huss-up and suppress within the church sexploiting power and money.
  7. The “rogue-court” type proceedings would xdestroy the faith and belief system.
  8. The christians should clean their sins and they cannot create more sin chambers by sinning even the confession boxes.
  9. When surrogate mothers are encouraged, this type of crimes, perhaps, appear less criminal to such mind-set and psyche.
  10. All sexual relted crimes should be treated, handled and offendes should be punished without any discrimination under thelaw of this land.
