The Clerical Whispers blog has reported that 60 year old priest Father Edmund Cotter has been sebtenced to 5 years for sexually abusing 10 girls and 1 boy in the 1970’s while he was a parish priest in Preston U.K.
The priest used his position of authority to threaten and manipulate his victims. He told one of his victims he was “like God” and that if she wasn’t good she would burn in hell.
The Clerical Whispers blog is a great source of information about the inner working of the Catholic Church. It is worth looking at.
