Where the Catholic of Kerala are heading?
There have been various incidents of the male and female abuse in Catholic churches of Kerala and it has been casting a dark cloud over the reputation of Kerala.
There have been five major incidents reported in Kerala and it has been two months only when the Fr. Edwin Figarez, punished a double life imprisonment for raping 14 year old girl. He was a parish priest and was at Puthenvelikkara. Incidentally, he is same person who spoke against child abuse.
In October 2016, Fr. James Thekemuriyil, who was posted in Kannur district was held by the police for the sexual assault on the 21 year girl who was undergoing training under him.
The question is these priests are bringing both disgrace and humiliation for the Churches and the religion.
