I'm no danger says abuser ex-priest

A former Roman Catholic priest exposed as a serial child sex abuser has claimed he poses no "threat or danger to children".

Bill Carney was accused by the Murphy report, which was published in Ireland two years ago, of abusing at least 32 children.

Carney, who was ordained in 1974 and defrocked in 1992, left Ireland and was traced to Spain before settling in Northleach, near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Earlier this year the Gloucestershire Echo newspaper published an article revealing he was living in the home of his ex-wife, close to a children's playground.

The newspaper published a letter Carney had written in response to that article.

"Your article depicts me as a threat or a danger to children. Nothing could be further from the truth," he wrote.

"For over 30 years now I have been a recovering alcoholic and the only mark against my name is three points on my driving licence for doing 38mph in a 40mph area. In these 30 years there has not been the slightest suggestion of anything that would indicate that I am a danger to any child."

The report by the Commission to Inquire into the Dublin Archdiocese, which was headed by Judge Yvonne Murphy, said Carney had pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault in 1983 against two altar boys.

"He was one of the most serious serial abusers investigated by the commission," the report stated. "There is some evidence suggesting that, on separate occasions, he may have acted in concert with other convicted clerical child sexual abusers."

Carney has never been tried for any of the allegations made in the report.

MUITO BOM! Eu acredito que Deus criou o homem e deixou o manual de instrução, a “BÍBLIA SAGRADA!” A bíblia é a divina revelação da palavra de Deus e não produtos enlatados, eu costumo dizer que: “As pessoas precisam parar de comer tudo o que dão. E começar a questionar! ” Alguém escuta alguma coisa de alguém, e saem falando, sem questionar, sem saber se é verdade ou não. As pessoas precisam se perguntar! Será que a minha crença esta de acordo com a lei de Deus? Será que a religião que eu nasci sempre me falou a verdade? Quando uma pessoa morre pra onde ela vai? Ela volta? A bíblia apóia o homossexualismo? Quem não herdara o reino de Deus? O que devo saber sobre idolatria, imagens e escultura? O que devo saber sobre o único batismo? Será que tem uma seqüência para salvação? A quem eu devo me confessar, quem pode me perdoar? Religião salva alguém? Essas e outras perguntas e respostas em:

Você pode dizer, eu já sou salvo amém! Vamos atrás de quem não esta, “Se você quer se dar bem com o mundo seja hipócrita, mas se você quer se dar bem com Deu seja verdadeiro!” divulgue este site, porque: “Eis que vêm dias, diz o Senhor Jeová, em que enviarei fome sobre a terra, não fome de pão, nem sede de água, mas de ouvir as palavras do Senhor. E irão vagabundos de um mar até outro mar, e do norte até ao oriente; correrão por toda parte, buscando a palavra do Senhor, e não a acharão." ( Amós cap 8 ver 11 e 12 )Fale para outras pessoas, por que “O Senhor não retarda a sua promessa, ainda que alguns têm por tardia: mas é longânimo para convosco, não querendo que alguns se percam, senão que todos venham a arrepender-se.” (II Pedro cap. 3 ver 8) e “Que quer que todos os homens se salvem, e venham ao conhecimento da verdade. Porque há um só Deus, e um só Mediador entre Deus e os homens, Jesus Cristo o homem. (I A Timóteo cap 2 ver 5 e 6)
Seja sua bíblia, católica ou evangélica, aqui você vai tirar suas duvidas.

E conhecereis a verdade, e a verdade vos libertara (João cap 8 ver 32) Se você tiver coragem de perguntar, a bíblia terá coragem de responder!

A former priest regarded as one of the most notorious cleric child sex abusers of his generation, William Carney, has died in prison.

Fr Bill Carney, as he was known, was found dead in his cell on Saturday at the Midlands Prison, Portlaoise, Co Laois.

He had been extradited from the UK two years ago and was on remand awaiting trial in relation to 34 historical sexual assaults.

The Irish Times understands the 65-year-old was suffering from a cardiac condition and that foul play is not suspected.

The report of Commission of Investigation into the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin, published in 2009, said he was one of the most serious sexual abusers it had reviewed.

He was based in the parish of Ayrfield in north Dublin for a period, having been appointed curate in the parish in 1977.

He was finally dismissed from the clerical state in 1992 almost a decade after complaints were first made that he sexually abused children.

The commission said there was evidence he acted in concert with other convicted clerical sex abusers, Fr Francis McCarthy and Fr Patrick McGuire, during the 1970s and 1980s.

The commission was aware of allegations of abuse in respect of 32 individuals, although there was evidence he abused many more.

Carney had access to numerous children in residential care and swimming classes. At one point, he inquired into the possibility of fostering children.

The first of many complaints were made by altar boys in 1983 whom he took swimming.

The commission says the mishandling of these complaints by the archdiocese was “nothing short of catastrophic” and displayed no concern for child welfare.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault in 1983 and the archdiocese paid compensation to six of his victims.

However, he was in 1986 restored to priestly duties and continued to abuse children in Crumlin, south Dublin, where he was sent.

He settled in St Andrew’s, Scotland, where he married after being dismissed from the priesthood and also spent time in Spain and lived in England.

His marriage broke down and he was extradited to Ireland to face trial in 2013 in relation to 34 charges of sexual abuse on eight males and three females in Leinster between 1969 and 1989.
