Guilty Priest From Stockton Flees Country

Fr. Michael Kelly, accused molester, who bombarded the Superior Court in Stockton, California very recently, along with dozens of his glassy eyed groupies and supporters all month, has skipped out!

Of shock to no one with conscience, the pedophile priest was found guilty, by a 12 to 0 slam dunk by a jury trial- who took record short time to reach the guilty verdict without blinking.
After the dramatic rehearsed court showing of his adamant, relentless cries of innocence and sheer martyrdom, Kelly has fled to Ireland, with a "tummy ache." Yes, a "tummy ache". No surprise there. He bolted like a coward, heading for his Irish homeland and ignoring his subpoena -- and the law; like thousands of guilty catholic clergymen who preceeded him.


Right when a rapidly dwindling few were thinking maybe, just maybe -- the Catholic Church is starting to clean up their act, and become accountable".they throw the holy crap back in our face. This latest manure soaked pedo-story goes like this; Fr. Michael Kelly, pastor at St. Joachim's in Lodi, California, (of course a place with children), was sued, along with the Diocese of Stockton for the usual clergy child abuse accusations. I don't recommend you Google- "clergy abuse", I don't think they can handle over a trillion hits.
But this case was a high profile case, because the victim, John Doe, was a highly decorated war veteran pilot from Afghanistan, who had "repressed memory". The victim recalled later on in his life, that 25 years ago in the 1980's, that Fr. Kelly molested him. A suit was filed recently against Fr. Kelly and the Diocese of Stockton for negligent child sex abuse. The Diocese of Stockton is by no means a stranger to rancid clergy abuse cases and cover-ups.
Flocks of Fr. Kelly's devout sheeples, emerged in droves to support the accused molester, which is all too typical in these cases, and they were belligerent, obnoxious, and ready to draw blood for their cause. The saber toothed sheeples relentlessly spewed venom at the child abuse victims advocates who appeared at the court; as Fr. kelly's groupies idolized the guilty cleric blindly. Those sheeples blinders are probably well worn out in the diocese of Stockton by now.


The trial took two weeks, and the Catholic Church produced several  well paid psychological experts to refute "repressed memory", and to belittle and rip apart the victim, without mercy. After counting their money, the church's "experts" apparantly disappeared -- most probably in anticipation for the next circus; and the next check from the church for their all too familiar, babbling, rehearsed expert testimonials.


Fortunately, the victim was strong, intelligent, and had the truth on his side- something the Catholic Church Molestation Machine constantly seems to overlook in these cases. After all, the church has enjoyed the dodging of clergy abuse convictions for centuries, it's going to take a while for reality to to completely set in.
After the jury guilty verdict, the second phase of the trial was supposed to start. This means that the Diocese was going to take the stand, and the jury would determine just how negligent the diocese was for allowing Fr. Kelly to be around children, and decide on an award for the plaintiff.
But Fr. Kelly, unbeknownst to Bishop Blaire of Stockton, suddenly vanished! Wink. Wink.
The disgraced priest left a teary eyed note to the Bishop, and said basically that he bolted because he had a belly ache, and he felt sorry for himself. Imagine that. And apparently he didn't apologize to the victim, he spewed the usual "I'm the victim priest" letter of self indulgent pity, and completed the clerical lack of remorse routine like a pro. But the Bishop, being obviously educated about clergy pedophiles reputations by now, kept the good bye letter in tact, but must have forgot to keep the priest in tact. Wink. Wink.


Fr. Kelly was supposed to take the stand again shortly, to face his accusers attorney, and now the Bishop of Stockton has to make sad Catholic hierarchy faces and apologize. But Bishop Blaire and the diocese are well seasoned veterans now after being sued regularly, and losing; and the diocese fortunately has plenty of well scripted comments in it's files to accommodate every negligent occasion.
