St. Louis Archbishop He Was Unsure Adult-Child Sex Was A Crime

St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson, in a legal deposition given last month, said he was uncertain that it was a crime for an adult to engage in sex with a child. Carlson was being deposed over a sex abuse allegation he dealt with as auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis in the mid-1980s.

In the May 24 deposition, released on Monday, attorney Jeff Anderson asked Carlson if he knew it was a crime for an adult to engage in sex with a kid. Im not sure whether I knew it was a crime or not" Carlson replied. I understand today its a crime.

Anderson went on to ask whether Carlson understood in 1984 whether it was a crime for a priest to engage in sex with a child. Im not sure I did, or I didnt, the archbishop replied.

This clown isn't up to the everyday Catholic standard for lying. There's no way anyone could believe his weird answer. In fact, it's a common pedophile technique to claim that the harm of CSA is done by "society's" attitude, not by the perv himself.

I think I have found a verse Archbishop Carlson needs to review:

"But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil." - Matthew 5:37

All I can add is: "Jesus wept." - John 11:35

I thought I was beyond being shocked by the horrendous response of the Catholic church but this fellow is incredibly awful.

He's been living a falsehood for so long that he no longer knows what is true and what is false.
