Photo Emerges of Confirmed Pedo-Priest Gus Krumm and Accused Pedo-Priest Alexander Manville Saying Mass Together

In 2009, a former student at Sts. Simon and Jude in Huntington Beach filed a lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court alleging he suffered molestations at the grubby hands of priests Gus Krumm (at right) and Alexander Manville. Krumm, of course, is a confirmed pedo-priest whom the Diocese of Orange didn't sack even after they knew he was named in a massive pedo-priest ring at a Santa Barbara seminary; this was Manville's first known accusation. The lawsuit hasn't been resolved yet and is heading toward a court date later this year.

In the interest of helping survivors of sex abuse at the hands of pedo-priests have the courage to step forward, the Weekly has come across an undated picture of the two saying Mass (gracias, source!). It's after the jump.

I sued Mater Dei, the OC and LA Dioceses we "won" small change considering not just what the perp. Richardson did to me but the active measures engaged in by their operators in screwing with you for the rest of your life, especially after testifying against Richarson in a Star Chamber like preliminary hearing. Coincidentally Kay Nashat (sp?) whose with the San Bernardino DA's office prosecuted the treasurer of NAMBLA after Coach Richardson. I guess all roads, sadly, really do lead to Rome.

My wife and I came to Krumm... whom (Sts Simon & Jude was our parish) we both thought was a great priest and would be understanding of our plight just as I thought Harris of MDHS was as well (both are masters of deception) ... my girlfriend (now my wife no thanks to the Catholic Church) was pregnant with our first child... we were not married and wanted to be... Fr. Gus Krumm refused to marry us! We have been married for over twenty years now and have five children. The Catholic Church left me I did not leave it. We are homeschooling our youngest three children. I report sadly that the Catholic Church is dead... it corpse stinks to high heaven. Ireland was`forced to close its embassies with the Vatican (maxkeiser.com) over the molestation hydrogen bomb fallout that remains as creatures like Fr. Defrocked O'Grady (Grady) continue to roam Ireland free and pardon the pun, unmolested by the "authorities." My advice... practice your knot tying and learn to tie a noose. This is the only language this mafia understands. I wish I were joking. P.S. Reporters are schmucks that goes for you too Gustavo.

So when the church pays out over 28.5 million to 25 victims who all sued the church you don't believe the merits of the accusations?  Why would they pay out money to these victims if they did not do anything wrong?  Don't you think they would fight it all the way to the end if they were completely innocent?  If I was innocent of a crime I would never accept a plea bargain.

Krumm is an admitted child molester and Manville is an admitted drunk who also admitted to stealing money from collection baskets in order to buy alcohol. Driscoll is one of many who knowingly hid and transfered priests like these in order not to deal with the issue at hand. People need to rise up and demand that this will not be done again. All of the files need to be audited by law enforcement and the church needs to pay for this.

All three of these men belong in prison.

Yep -- that certainly looks like Mickey Driscoll in the middle, now blessing the state of Idaho with his own twisted brand of “transparency.” It seems his “transparent” handling of the allegations against Raul Covarrubias has left Mountain Home parishioners believing the allegations stemmed from consensual sex with an adult female . . . . wrong . . . . And, more recently, he is stonewalling an adult son expressing concern over the vast sums his elderly widowed mother has given to Driscoll’s Cathedral rector (see wwww.preyingonfaith.org). Brown and Driscoll – a couple of shameless, self-serving, clericalist peas in a pod, protecting predators of various stripes, these two princes of the church. Heckuva job, Mickey.

The "Catholic Church" since Vatican II is a colossal joke. Besides that, it's not even really Catholic at all.

Justice needs to be served on the assholes. The whole church is responsible for this.

If the man has not been convicted I dont believe anything at this point. Shame on everyone that jumps on board to convict anyone that has yet to be convicted of a crime.

In the case of the 85 who sued the OC diocese it was a $100M settlement. Penn State has had its credit rating downgraded by Moody's as the lawyers are loading their guns and rightfully so. I have mixed feelings about this system of justice but money is one of the languages these bastards speak and comprehend. Institutionalized corruption and ephebophile/pedophile abuse is far more vicious and ruthless than horrific individual cases because the political machinery that grows up around systemic abuse feeds on the souls of its victims. On the one hand is the physical sexual abuse but in the hands of a sociopath or psychopath rape goes with pillage and it becomes a political weapon brought to bear against the populace to subjugate even an entire nation. Left unchallenged it becomes a threat to all of our families and societies' pursuit of happiness and general welfare. Evil triumphs because good men do nothing. Like witnessing a crime and not reporting it to a peace officer. I do not say "law enforcement" because it is juries duty to decide both the facts of the case and to ultimately enforce the law. We are our brothers keeper. This type of violence against families is really off the charts. Take a look at some of these other cases:

 this case looks like Bishop Vlazny gang and the Portland Or pedophile ring. Punish the bishop heavily, knowing or unknowing, the bishop ordains, oversees and ultimately responsible for their priests.

The Church before Vatican II is the church that kept all the pedophiles out of sight and moved around. Pre-Vatican II culture was much more silent on threats. I remember the day I read a document from the Vatican stating how it was the moral obligation- on pain of excomunication- of person who had been molested or propositioned by a priest to come forward. Victims were further victimized. Since Vatican II, the church is much more open, laxed, but still troubled and flawed.

And to Josesierra- marriage will not solve the pedophile problem. I'm sick and tired of idiots thinking that celibacy and pedophilia are linked. The American Psychiatric Board, the Medical Board, and behaviorists agree that pedophilia is a problem all to itself. If marriage is the solution why is it that you have married men and women pedophiles who are working in every imaginable field?

Yes- there are pedophile priests and it is reprehensible, unfortunate, and disgusting, but allowing them to marry will not solve the issue. Exposing the problem will.

Pedo would be slang for pedophile. It might be that way in Mexico, but we're in the US now. I took my cultural awareness class, so I'm all set!

It is VERY interesting (but predictable and sad) that no comments have been made, and no blog entry made, since the defense verdict in this case.

Marriage for priests will not cure pedophilia. Marriage for priests will help cure the church.

Celibacy is an unnatural state. It requires its adherents to suppress the great natural design of our own biology. Celibacy requires its practitioners to deny a vast element of their own humanity. Celibacy is foreign to nature.

Because celibacy contradicts who we are as a species, its adherents will -- eventually -- express those desires in some other way. Prayer and cold showers are inadequate in the face of our deepest selves.

Abandoning celibacy (a recent invention of the church in any case) will allow our best priests to lead normal, loving and fully informed lives. The priesthood will become less attractive to those needing the cloak of celibacy to disguise peculiar urges.

Celibacy was not required until more than a thousand years after Christ. Only at the Second Lateran Council was it codified. Even then, it was slow to catch hold, as any student of the Medici Popes can attest. To this day, there is no celibacy required in the Eastern Rite, nor among Anglicans. Are they all sinners? Hardly.

Celibacy is unnatural because it repudiates who we are as a species. Such insensible acts lead to disaster. We might as well pretend we weren't meant to breathe air. Humans need the loving, intimate embrace of other humans. That's who we are, and what we do.

The Vatican long denied the rotation of the earth around the sun. It still denies our need to hold one another in love and intimate states of passion and truth. Celibacy is no more than a simulacrum of this love, an impostor from first to last.

It will not, and cannot, suffice.
