That's the word he uses for it in a Lie Detector test from May 1997.
City of Angels has the transcript of the lie detector test and will run a post with more direct quotes next blog entry.
Again. What organization in America is allowed to systematically obstruct justice? Margaret Schettler tried for the entire year of 2003 to get the last name of the priest who had raped altar boys all over the inland emplire, and the San Bernardino diocese would not even give her his last name. Tony Rodrigue was a serial pedophile since at least 1969, who’d been convicted twice as a child molester.
The SB diocese told Schettler they did not know of a Father Tony in Coachella who had problems with children.
The Catholic Church knew since the 1970s that Tony Rodrigue had a problem with sexual attraction to children.
HOW DID Margaret Schettler know about Tony Rodrigue in the 1970s?
Margaret: When I went to work at the parish, there were two priests that were co-pastoring the parish. One told me immediately after introducing me to Rodrigue.
He told me right away the guy was there to wait to go to a treatment center because he was molesting kids. When I’d be in the rectory ther would be kids coming to the door, always asking for Father Tony.
It started to happen soon and he was standing in the background of where I was answering the door, I mean I just knew that this guy wasn’t supposed to see kids and here he was coming to the door and coming out to meet them.
He had a little truck with a camper and he was taking the kids out hanging out with them, away from the parish.
There were a couple times the priest came through and said Father Tony is taking kids out in his truck again.
A couple times.
When Rodrigue left, I said, to the other priest who co-parished there, Oh he’s gone to his treatment center. The other priest said what are you talking about like he was already denying it.
In late 2003, after a lot of prodding the diocese finally started to reach out to victims, sort of, as reported here:
