An important update…
Remember Father Stephen Amesse, the Ottawa priest who was, alas, acquitted after his sex trial?
Yes, that is indeed the priest who doesn’t like the feel of body hair on his clothes, and the one who actually bought that young lad a body shaver!
Yes, that’s the same priest who testified that he doesn’t know what grooming is, this from a priest in this day and age, not to mention a priest who, as a layman, assisted in the compilation of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishop’s 1992 handbook to sex abuse , From Pain to Hope, …. never mind a priest who admitted mailing cards with money to Robert and another boy.
That’s right, he’s the priest who’s a friend of Eric: Eric, the California body builder. Well, actually Father Amesse testified that he became acquainted with Eric when he, Amesse, turned 50 and apparently became concerned about his health and fitness. Remember? Remember that Father Amesse opted not to look in his own back yard of Ottawa where fitness gurus are a dime a dozen. And remember how he tried to explain that he didn’t seek local expertise because he preferred to do this at home!
Ah, yes, Eric.
Remember all the talk of Eric came about because “Robert” said he saw a picture of a naked Eric in the rectory? Robert remembered his name. Eric.
Yes, there was indeed an Eric. But, there were no pictures of a naked Eric. Absolutely not!
And remember that Father Amesse arrived in court one day with a brochure which sort of presented Eric as just a nice family man?
Finally, remember I found the porn pictures of Eric online? Sheer filth.
Now on to the update on Father Stephen Amesse.
The word is that Father Amesse was off to Southdown for about a couple of weeks or so a little while back. And then back he went – back to Southdown – for about three months.
My understand is that he’s there right now.
Why is he at Southdown? Well, it can’t be for drinking,- Father Amesse told the court that he doesn’t drink.
And, of course, Father Amesse was acquitted. (Remember how the courtroom erupted in applause when the judge gave the verdict?)
Why then was this priest off to Southdown?
So, that’s where he is. And, by the sound of it, plans are afoot for his return…
To a parish!!
A recycling I’d say.
There’s talk of St. Patrick’s Basilica.
If this is fact, and I have no reason to believe otherwise, God help us! I am floored. Common sense has flown right out the window!
I am in the process of adding the names of a Brother Brother Darvin Regaspi Dominic Grageda src (Robert Joseph MacDougall) and Father Robert Joseph MacDougall/McDougall (Archdiocese of Halifax) . If anyone has any information on either please pass it along
Enough for now,
