abused

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 07, 2004

Accused of abusing more than 50 boys, Portland priest Father Maurice Grammond provides a window into the mind of the molester.

Grammond died in 2002. In a deposition taken before his death, Grammond said, "I'd say these children abused me. They'd dive in my lap to get sexual excitement."

He's a victim.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    This is typical of 99% of those who molest children. Very, very few perps ever admit to wrongdoing. That's evil, not a psychological condition. They share that trait with Satan.

    "I'd say these children abused me." And I'd say Fr. Grammond has a thought disorder. His sexual habits have evidently driven him to madness.
