Oliver O'Grady has been called the Hannibal Lecter of pedophile Catholic priests. He has been gone from the Stockton Diocese for 17 years, but the civil lawsuits keep coming — 22 to date, resulting in $18.7 million paid to victims.

And today, when O'Grady turns 65 in his native Ireland, an annuity purchased by the diocese seven years ago will pay him about $788 a month for 10 years, totaling $94,560. There is nothing the diocese, its parishioners or his outraged victims can do about it.

    I attended "church school" and I know a little bit about this issue.Churches have been businesses forever.They solicit funds, they build buildings, they buy stuff, they compete with one another--they market and sell a service. I'm not sure they should be given tax exempt status.Now we see they offer a very generous and "sacred" employee retirement program.When I think about all the nickels and dimes I saved as a kid---just to give to the church (under duress) and all the corrupt tv evangelists--- then see this clown cash out I get a little hot under "the collar".

    Mark E, do you really think it's just the Catholic church? The Salvation Army holds over $4 billion in real estate holdings alone, and that's just their private protfolio and doesn't even include their own facilities.

    If you have any interest in how corrupt this Church is read a novel called On This Rock by Dave Leonard. The book is fiction but it uses many historical facts to make its point. Good read too.
