Gleeson SJ in Philadelphia: inquiring student minds at work

  1. Last Friday, another Jesuit sex settlement was revealed; this time the Jesuits agreed to pay $166,100,000 to their victims. That old settlement for Wheeling’s Trustee Tommy Gleeson, S.J., cost the Jesuits less than $1,000,000, a pittance compared to last week’s $166,100,000 Jesuit payoff to complaining witnesses. Why, that is enough to build a huge new Jesuit university with a big campus full of potential victims for future Jesuit perverts.

    Gee, do you ever wonder where all that money comes from? Jesuits take a vow of poverty. Apparently so do the tuition-paying parents of Jesuit college students.

    According to news reports, the settlement money goes to approximately 450 Native Americans who attended Jesuit-run schools on Indian reservations in five states (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska) over a period of sixty (60) years from the 1940s through the 1990s. If divided evenly among the claimants, this would amount to something like $370,000 per person. However, the percentage going to the claimants' lawyers has not been disclosed.

    The northwest Jesuit province became insolvent and filed for bankruptcy in 2009; most of the funds are being paid by insurance companies, which were primarily responsible for deciding how much to settle for. Most of the allegations underlying this settlement were made against priests who are deceased (unable to defend themselves) and there is little supporting evidence beyond the claimants' own allegations.


    While every claim might be true, $370,000 is a powerful incentive to say that someone once touched him or her inappropriately; especially when the person is now dead and unable to prove his innocence.

    I posted a message here a couple days ago regarding the Jesuit settlement in order to put some of Mike Fahy's statements in better factual context. Whoever controls this blog removed my post. It is ironic that someone who demands transparency from others should censor facts and opinions they don't like. But it proves what the real purpose of this website is.
