Deliver Us From Evil

Filmmaker Amy Berg recounts a harrowing story of child abuse and how a serial child molester went free for the better part of two decades in this documentary. Oliver O'Grady was a Catholic priest who served in a number of parishes in Southern California during the 1970s and '80s. O'Grady was also a habitual child molester who abused dozens of youngsters who were entrusted to his care, and while his superiors in the church were aware of O'Grady's crimes as early as 1973, they opted to simply move him from one congregation to another rather than turn him in to authorities or strip him of his ordination. In Deliver Us From Evil, a number of O'Grady's victims and their families discuss his crimes and the repercussions they feel to this day. O'Grady himself also appears in the film, speaking candidly about his career as a sexual predator and recounting his misdeeds in detail. (After finally being convicted of child sexual abuse, O'Grady served time in prison and now lives in Ireland, where he is still looked after by Catholic clergy.) Berg also offers a look into the history of the Catholic Church and how its leadership has often protected those within the hierarchy at the expense of their worshipers. Deliver Us From Evil was named Best Documentary Feature at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival.

As a grownup Catholic, I unfortunately know too well about the crisis since I have had experiences with evil priests like father O'Grady. I have never been sexually molested thank God myself, but I feel for all those who are raped by these and those monsters who abused them by rationalizing the touching and fondling of young girls and coverup. I can't say much more as these people including Ratzinger is nothing but a criminal.

This is an eye opener film. When you see how the Church protects its own while knowing full well what he did is unbelievable. This is the same church that knew what was happening to the Jews during WWII and did nothing. The Cardinals and Pope look like rappers with their gold , thick , chains and hand made shoes, yet schools are closing in America. Now they elected a Pope who you will see in this film , who is no better than the lousy priest he is protecting. See this and learn, you owe it to yourself and to your children

They bilk the parishioners, as the priest live in a lap of luxury surrounded by gold. Everyone knows the Vatican has Billions of dollars, but keeps it’s book secret so we can not know how many billions they have. Meanwhile, in the churches where the victims want justice, they just throw up their hands and say “we are bankrupt”. The Bible says that a Priest or “Bishop” MUST be a married man. The people who let these pedophile priest jump from parish to parish to get fresh kids should also be thrown in jail. The most serious problem however, is that the Catholic church has people fooled into believing it is a “Christian Church”, it is far from it. They call their own shots calling themselves “Infallible”, meaning whatever they say or do can’t be wrong. I am somewhat puzzled by the people who still attend there. They rape kids, then covered it up, why are you still a part of that organization? You should never confess to a priest, that is putting someone between you and Jesus. Jesus is the only mediator, if you read the real bible KJV, it will tell you the truth. The catholic Manuscripts were created by the Alexandrians, another cult found in Egypt. To top things off, the current Pope even swore in before as a Hitler Nazi Oath as a youth. This church isn’t Christian, it just pays “lip service” to let everyone think they are. The priest are living in the lap of Luxury, while the victims live without reparations. My heart goes out to all the victims of the Catholic Church. Please stand up for the victims, and do not continue to look the other way because you are also guilty of association if you say and do nothing.
