    NJ - Ex Priest Now Teacher And Coach Arrested By Fbi

    Guess why the former Father Joseph Macanga was arrested? Child pornography. FBI agents in New Jersey caught Macanga in chatrooms exploiting children. A search of Macanga's home turned up child pornography on his hard drive. In the tune of 300 images. Most disturbing is that Macanga is now a teacher and a coach. See, those former priests are not on a sex offender registry. http://www.wnbc.com/news/15966639/detail.html

    If he was never found guilty of a sexual crime he wouldn't be on the list. I didn't read anything in the article saying he had been convicted in the past, did I miss it? Also, a lot of times when these pervs get caught the DA sometimes makes deals and lets them plea to lesser charges that wouldn't require registering as a sex offender. The church could have just let him go and he went into teaching, I think as we've read nowadays back then the priests when caught in sexual misdeeds were shuttled to another parish.

    MsRusty you're right. I couldn't find anything about him through Archdicese files. I have heard his name though so probably that's what I figured. However, none of those Priests are on the SOR. Very few are even locked up. Joseph Macanga knew about this investigation since October. He kept teaching though and the Lumberton school district is just shocked. Shocked. Macanga used the screen name blo40 in many chat rooms with underage children. He's been released and is on supervision. Brilliant.http://www.phillyburbs.com/pb-dyn/ne...8-1523875.html

    (former) Father Joseph Macanga and the perverts who feel it is God's will to molest kids are the reason me and my family not longer attend mass or give money to any Catholic charity.
    Sounds like another cover-up to me since he was allowed to teach and coach.


    Those poor kids. Ugh.

    Pixies, don't that name sound familiar? Macanga. I don't see him listed on any of those Church lists. I can swear I read about him before. I have to look more. He's been a lay teacher at the same school for ten years it said. Not sure what Order he belonged to.

    Maybe I am reading your post wrong but I don't think these priests or the Catholic Church feel like it's God's will to molest children. I certainly recall lots of cover-ups when these scandals first started to break, but I never recall the Church trying to defend their position by saying the abuse was sanctioned by God.

    The church never said that but YES, one of the molesting priest did say it was "GOD's Will" and God made him homosexual. No problems with being gay but I do have problems with him saying that GOD is ok with raping 8 year old boys.
    I read a lot of books and several websites on cases like this because it does hit close to home. Plus magazines ect... I am very well versed in what happened concerning those involved in this and what they say to defend themselves.

    If you really wanted to split hairs on this issue, YES the church did condone and allow these men to move around the country, freely and rape and molest and abuse any and every child that crossed their path because the church gave them the freedom and the money and the power to do all this, plus the church KNEW about their actions. They allowed it to continue so yeah, the church can defend itself all it wants but the church is to blame in almost ALL of these cases.

    Right on Pixie..you are absolutely right. I'm not positive but I think it was the current Pope who to refused to see the family of one 9 yr. old girl who had been raped every nite as a guest in the home of one of his parishioners (in Deliver Us From Evil) who has now been fielded off to Ireland. THe Pope refused to see them!
    What's that tell ya!

    Have you seen the movie "Deliver Us From Evil" ?
    You can rent the video now I believe....

    Here's the Trailer...................for Deliver Us From Evil!

    Watch this guys..............

    Turn up the sound!

    The film is magnificent. My daughter in law did not win the Academy Award, she came in 2nd because Al Gore beat her out. A lot of Catholic power and money in Los Angeles CA made that happen.

    xxxxxxxxxxooooooo
