Yesterday, Boston Catholics were circulating the news that Fr. Mullen has told the Board at MCFL and his parishioners that he expects the Cardinal to cripple his vocation and remove him from his parish for refusing to participate in Talking about Touching (TAT).
There are many problems with TAT, including the safety issue that it allows any pervert who has not been caught yet to use the platform of teaching children about sexual matters to identify children they can corner to abuse. I will explain how later. Lay Catholics are organizing, more later, but right now we need prayer so get going.
Many parents and Catholics informed and educated on the Kinsey sex ed agenda have written about the problems Talking about Touching (TAT) - including yours truly.
Here's a well-written article written by Mary Jo Anderson.
A number of resources here.
In defense of the absurdity of putting the onus on kindergarten children to defend themselves against the pedophiles the Archdiocese ordained and hired (instead of taking an inventory of who is sexually active and then purging them) the Cardinal and his men characterized parents as frigid Catholics who consider sexuality sinful and are afraid of the proper names of their body parts.
When we didn't retreat, Deacon Anthony Rizzuto (in charge of the program) actually went so far as to suggest the strategy for the diocese should include threatening that parents who refused program should be listed as suspected abusers. Though several highly-respected women who involved in vetting the program (and who were overruled) vehemently objected. Though this took some traction out of that strategy, we have unconfirmed reports that there indeed is such a list that is forwarded every year to the USCCB office for the "protection of children".
There is nothing protecting children in this program, especially when you know how it is being carried out on the parish level.
Children are exploited to "protect" the Cardinal.
Do you the number one tool for pedophiles harvest their victims?
They look for ways to talk to children about sex. The overwhelming majority of victims of pedophile will tell you that "teaching" about sex was used to rope them in.
They look for opportunities to teach sex to children. When they can't find one, they invent their own opportunities to teach sex to children. Though not always the case, the majority of the time they zero in on at-risk children from dysfunctional families - alcoholism, poverty, divorce - and the 'lessons' get increasingly more personalized until eventually, there is a physical lesson.
This is how pedophilia works.
The USCCB and the corrupt cronies at the Archdiocese of Boston have provided opportunities in every Catholic classroom for perverts.
This is the most egregious of the offenses of programs structured like Talking about Touching.
Fr. Mullen has archived his struggle with the program on his website.
Catch up on some reading.
Meanwhile, to the diocescan heirarchs reading - know this: I'm going to pack up everything archived in Boston Catholic Insider and Bryan Hehir Exposed and I'm going to be making some personal visits to some HUGE donors. I'm going to be convincing them to completely shut off your oxygen - "the money".
We want to bring in Bishop Vasa's program as a choice for priests who do not want and cannot exploit children and put them at risk. This should be an option. There is no reason for this not to be an option.
You best be leaving Fr. Mullen alone.
If you don't think Boston Catholics fed up with the corruption can make an impact - just try us!

More sample lessons.
Cole and Mai are playing at the beach. When they go to the beach, they wear bathing suits. Their bathing suits cover up the private parts of their bodies. On boys, the bathing suit covers his penis in front and buttocks or bottom in the back. Those are his private body parts. The girl's bathing suit covers her vulva, vagina, and breasts in front, and buttocks or bottom in the back. These are her private body parts.Oddly enough, the only private body parts missing in that description are also nowhere to be seen in the "Pastoral Center".
Sample 3rd Grade Lesson:
Click here to see the actual lesson card. The teacher is supposed to read the following story to the class
This is Kerry. She is worried about something that happened to her last week when she spent the night with one of her friends. Her friend's older brother came into the bedroom, put his hand under the covers of the bed Kerry was sleeping in, and touched her vagina (private parts). She said, "Stop that!" in an assertive voice. He stopped, but then he told her to keep it a secret. Kerry is wondering what she should do.
Teacher's Question to the Children: How do you think Kerry felt when her friend's brother touched her vagina?
I'm trying to get my hands on the teacher instruction to inform the kids after one of these stories (and leading questions to tell them how pleasant it feels) that it was okay to touch each others private parts so long as they want to -- just don't do it at the 'school'. A first or second grade lesson.
Here in Boston, Deacon Anthony Rizzuto, in charge of the program, held meetings on implementation with Voice of the Faithful, many of whom promote promiscuity in their parishes and communities. And, as a result of those meetings, wait until you hear which VOTF character (and parishioner of Walter Cuenin's) was running training programs for implementation.
The children are introduced to human sexuality as violent rape and something to run away from. They are given the idea that at any moment, they may need to defend themselves from violent rapes and absurdly told they are the people who are accountable for defending themselves in the interaction and they are going to need to know how to tell the police.
Parents, priests, Bishops, doctors, psychologists - all informed Cardinal O'Malley and his men what they were doing to the security, innocence and psychosexual development and safety of children.
They did it anyway. And, as usual and customary, they maligned and slandered people giving them the warning.
