Did Tamil Nadu Export Catholic Pedophile to U.S.?

For the answer to the above question, you’ll have to wait for the U.S. courts to determine whether Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul is guilty of sexually assaulting a Minnesota teenager.

But trust the Tamils to get into trouble wherever they go.

Trouble follows Tamils just as night follows day: Sri Lanka, Minnesota, Malaysia, Mumbai (remember the Mafia don Varadaraja Mudaliar) and Christ knows where else.

U.S. publications today are all atwitter about the case of  Catholic priest Father Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul, presumably a Tamil from the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu going by his name,  for alleged sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl when he was working at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Minnesota in 2004.

Here’s an excerpt from the Star Tribune story about Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul:

Jeyapaul is wanted in the U.S. on two counts of criminal sexual conduct stemming from accusations he assaulted a young, female parishioner in the fall of 2004 at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Greenbush, where he was working. Each charge carries a sentence of up to 30 years.

According to the criminal complaint, the teenage girl accused Jeyapaul of threatening to kill her family if she did not come into the rectory, where he then forced her to perform oral sex on him and groped her.

Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul has denied the charges and, of course, there’s the presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

But Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul is supposedly refusing to return to the U.S. to face charges.

If Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul is indeed guilty of the charges, it could turn out to be one more instance of the Catholic Church not doing enough to bring to book pedophile priests in its fold.

    Machcha (the bloke Palanivel) is in Ooty now.

    We think the current Nazi Pope Benedict XVI/Joseph Ratzinger is finished or will find it very difficult to get things done.

    So many charges of covering up filed against the Catholic Church in re covering up sexual abuse by errant priests. Some of the charges are now getting close to the Nazi Pope.

    The Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul case hit the wires today as one more illustration of the Catholic Church trying to push under the rug any unpleasant incident so that the scandal does not affect the church no matter the cost to the victim.
