Sexual Misconduct by Catholic Priests in The Philippines

Warning to Priests: Your Impunity for Sexual Misconduct Has Expired

We are not talking about the many good men, fine priests who have defacto [secret] marriages to adult, consenting, informed wives and a lovely hidden family of one or more youngsters. You may be the sane, rational people who can help thousands of people victimized by deviant sex offenders hiding inside the Church who prey on the children of your ‘flock’.

  • RINJ is warning about sexually violent priests who rape boys and girls. Many are pedophiles but many are no more than promiscuous deviants, imposters pretending to do the work of God.
  • RINJ invites survivors or their parents to avail of free clinical help in absolute confidentiality.

Pedophiles are ill men who cannot control their feelings. The stigma to this sickness has prevented a fair hearing. Let’s change that. It is a sickness of men who need help. They don’t want to be sick.

They cannot be priests. Criminals belong in jail and ill people need remedial mental health care in appropriate institutions or as out patients. They cannot be priests nor have children in their unsupervised care.


The Catholic Church of the Philippines needs a more learned approach to this problem.

Remember that just one man’s many crimes in a life time in this context damages thousands of lives indirectly and directly. That tragedy can seem to foil all the good work of many Saints.

There are an overwhelming number of cases RINJ cannot intervene immediately but dialogues have begun.

Offenders are warned that dozens are under a watchful eye and the world is going to back your prosecution. Stop your sins now and turn yourselves in.

RINJ (Rape Is No Joke) came to the Philippines in 2015 to deal with this enormous problem.

The world became sidetracked when President Duterte came to power and the widespread sexual molestation of children in the Philippines lost prominence.

Today the warning is on the table to a certain few priests & other members of the Catholic Church.

Stop sexing the kids!

Child abuse in the Philippines is nothing new. Many online businesses set up to exploit children for the sick pleasures of pedophiles exist exclusively in the Philippines. Cebu City and Manila have terrible reputations.

Today during a Human Rights Calamity the Catholic Church is doing good work in the Philippines providing safe harbour for women and children who are targets of Duterte’s death squads, or just desperately hungry. The world has no idea how sad this situation is and how much the Church has tried to help lately. Thank you for that work.

The Catholic Church, sleeping in 2016, has come alive in opposing Rodrigo Duterte’s killing spree and the insane legislation that Duterte has bullied the Congress into passing.

Thank you. Now help us fight to keep women and children safe.

“Because of its nature the Catholic Church has unwittingly become a safe harbour for some very dangerous sex offenders and some very cavalier, promiscuous imposters. Help us help you bring justice to survivors, jail to the perpetrators, and a chance to forgive and heal,” says Sharon Santiago of The RINJ Foundation

RINJ seeks to make sure that in the midst of the Church the bad apples are sent to jail and no longer exploiting the weak, poor and ill children they pretend to help.

This will help the Church continue its good work.

Because child abuse is such a daily occurrence in the Philippines, it is like Duterte’s murders, it goes ignored by the average Filipino.
