Liars – bishops, bishops underlings, dioceses, archdioceses, employees for victim assistance units…liars all. And who is the prince of lies? Satan! He has infiltrated what should be holy and sacred, what should be a beacon of truth and a blinding reflection of the love of God’s light. But what do we keep seeing, blinded at first by all the darkness surrounding priestly perversion and brought into God’s light, over and over again? Lies, half-truths, manipulation, misleading promises, saying one thing and meaning something completely different, trickery all from the vile bag of scum that belongs to the devil.
The recurring dream I had in the seminary, the one where the EVIL presence of Satan lurked, the dream I had so many times that even in my REM state I knew I was dreaming and the one where I got to actually see Satan, that dream was more prophetic than I ever imagined it to be. Satan dressed like a priest, a doughy greasy gray-haired man, puffy and pale wasn’t just the evil priests I was made to do battle with but was representative of the bishops, priests and various sycophants involved in the sex scandal today. My subconscious knew more than my conscious mind would allow me to know.
