Vatican Pedophilia Advisor Arrested for Pedophilia

Father Riccardo Seppia, a 51-year-old parish priest in the village of Sastri Ponente, near Genoa, was arrested last Friday, May 13, on pedophilia and drug charges. Investigators say that in tapped mobile-phone conversations, Seppia asked a Moroccan drug dealer to arrange sexual encounters with young and vulnerable boys.

“I do not want 16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for needy boys who have family issues,” he allegedly said.

Genoa Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, who is the head of the Italian Bishops Conference, had been working with Benedict to establish a tough new worldwide policy, released this week, on how bishops should handle accusations of priestly sex abuse.

According to investigators, Seppia told a friend — a former seminarian and barman who is currently under investigation — that the town’s malls were the best places to entice minors. In tapped phone conversations the two cursed and swore against God. The priest is charged with having attempted to kiss and touch an underage altar boy and of having exchanged cocaine for sexual intercourse with boys over 18.

Seppia’s defense lawyers are expected to argue that those conversations — monitored since Oct. 20, 2010 — were just words, sex games that were played by adults. It was just a game even when he claimed to have “kissed on the mouth” a 15-year-old altar boy, according to the defense.

For the record, the altar boy confirmed that the kisses did in fact happen, and that this completely f’ed up “sex game played by adults” had real life repercussions. While lying is also a sin, we imagine the type of priest willing to drug and molest children probably is too far past the line of morality to even notice, let alone care about adhering to Christian ethics.

And again, Seppia served as Pope Benedict’s official advisor on pedophilia. Who better to instruct the Vatican on how to make sex crimes committed by clergy disappear then a child-raping pedophile himself?

On a final note, the Catholic Church has employed more sex offenders than any corporation or organization in the entire history of the world. Just a little food for thought.

    The Catholic Church attempts to keep its faithful suckers and money-sources on its side by demonizing LGBT human beings (of whatever religion, including no religion).  In America, and other places where governments give the Catholic Church tax exempt status, LGBT tax payers are subsidizing the Church’s hate speech against them.  Is there any more insidious form of bullying?  As always, bullies operate in more than a single realm.  The Catholic Church bullies LGBT people and it bullies the child victims of the Church’s conspiracy to perpetuate child rapes.  Only the willfully blind can not see this going on.  Right in front of society’s nose, the Church today is fraudulently transferring and hiding its assets to avoid paying damages to its child rape victims.  Remember – Adolph Hitler was baptized – and never excommunicated.  The SS uniform belt buckle read “Gott mit uns,” God is on our side. 

  •    He needs to go to an American prison.  For the rest of his life at least.  Because in a prison here, his ass would be at the bottom of the totem pole, and everybody from the murderers to the guys about to get out on parole would be trying to kill him.  Let him have some time in there so the convicts can torture him some.  Please.

    It wasnt the advisor that was arrested. But also, what is the source for the line “On a final note, the Catholic Church has employed more sex offenders
    than any corporation or organization in the entire history of the world.”, I cant find that on Time, and Googling isnt helping either.

  • And people wonder why the world is so fucked up….

    In having been raised Catholic, I gave up going to church when I left home at 17.  I saw the hypocracy at an early age and since that time, I have never been more disgusted or ashamed of admitting being raised Catholic.  I have learned over the past 30 years that religions are all cults under a fancy name … a person does not have to open their wallets to belong to any cult to believe in simple basic morals and values.  Religion only brainwashes the weak minded …

  • Gyah…. This is terrifying. 

  • look they must be example  and preaching people for the good virtus but?,,,,

    I agree. This is sketchy reporting.

  • Between public school teachers and catholic priest, I wonder which one really has the most sex offenders…it’s a tie! Disgusting….and sad.

    Not only is it faulty reporting, UB isnt correcting the their errors.

    This is total bullshit. the article you are MISREPRESENTING clearly states that the  Archbishop was the advisor to the Pope, and the priest who was arrested was a priest within his archdiocese. Two separate people. Either you’re a barely literate cretin who honestly can’t read the article you’re distorting, or you’re just a simple old fashioned liar. Either way, you need to correct this.

    1 – maybe look for  family members, professors (sports, and science),  compare total percentage of the atacks, wich percentage has been commited by Catholic Church? Note: Do not mix up religions here : split all the waters.

    2- and bigger percentage of pedophilia and ebophilia in:
    ( ALL Gay Man VS ALL Priests )
    ( Gay Man non Priests  VS ALL non Gay Priests )

    ( ALL Gay Priests VS ALL non Gay Priests)

    3 – And catholics tax money going to LGBT groups and ONG’s that are against Catholic Teaching?
    How many are you ? How many are catholics?

    Wow, I LOVE how you twist the facts to fit your views. Seppia was NOT the adviser, his boss,Genoa Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, is.

    And, no, I’m not supporting the heinous crimes of Seppia. I am a firm believer that if you’re going to tar and feather someone, you ought to be tarring and feathering the right one and NOT lying about it as you go. Shame on you for this blatant propagandaism.
