Timothy Raemakers, Priest at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Aliso Viejo, Calls Sex-Abuse Allegation Lodged Against Him a "9/11 Moment"
They were there in force this past weekend, where Ramaekers continued the arrogance that characterizes the modern-day Catholic Church in the United States by comparing Carrigan's allegation and subsequent actions to a "9/11 moment" against him.

"A 9/11 [moment] is something that we don't create," Ramaekers told parishioners, according to eyewitnesses. "It's not something that we do. 9/11, when we look at it, it is not fair. It's not right. It's not just. We may be in the wrong place at the wrong time, but when we are in our 9/11 Ground Zero experience, our life is altered forever. My 9/11 experience is being accused of sexual misconduct."
All together now: IDIOT.
Since Carrigan's lawsuit was dismissed (statute of limitations) and the Diocese of Orange says Ramaekers ain't a pedo-priest, there is no stain on him--none. And certainly not something that involves the horrible deaths of thousands of innocents.
Even worse? Ramaekers told parishioners he would talk to Carrigan's family...and never did. Heckuva job, Brownie!
