A Catholic priest in Latvia stands accused of a horrific crime ahead of a papal visit to the Baltic nation.
“A Latvian Catholic priest has been arrested on allegations he raped a mentally handicapped victim of human trafficking, police in the capital Riga said Wednesday ahead of a papal visit,” according to France24.
The priest has been identified as Pavels Zeila, 73, of the Rēzekne–Aglon diocese.
The diocese is scheduled to host Pope Francis on his September 22 visit to the country.
“Zeila’s lawyer flatly denied the allegations and the Catholic diocese of Rezekne said Zeila must be presumed innocent,” the report said.
A second man was also charged with trafficking the victim.
“One of the suspects ‘delivered’ the defenceless victim for a fee, the church representative, who was the end buyer, paid the fee and then committed violent sexual crimes against the victim,” according to the report.
Zeila’s lawyer flatly denied the allegations and the Catholic diocese of Rezekne said Zeila must be presumed innocent.
It has been a hellish two months for the Catholic Church, which has faced accusations of sexual abuse by priests from several sources and calls for Pope Francis’ resignation.
At the end of July, more than 300 “predator priests” were named in a redacted Pennsylvania Supreme Court report. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of the Archdiocese of Washington D.C. resigned at nearly the same time after being outed as a sexual deviant. Finally, an Archbishop recently claimed that Pope Francis knew about McCarrick’s abuses and covered for him.
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that two gay priests were caught performing sex acts in a car in Miami, FL.
RIGGED: Twitter Admits “Bug” Covered Up for the Lincoln Project’s Predator
Covering up for their own.
Twitter admitted that a “bug” prevented platform users from searching for the Lincoln Project in Friday, hours after the neocon group’s founder partially admitted responsibility in response to a wave of sexual misconduct allegations.
The Lincoln Project was effectively immunized from scrutiny from the allegations, with the Big Tech platform throwing a vital lifeline in its hour of need. Twitter, which made the admission in a statement provided to the Daily Caller, hasn’t explained why it became impossible to search for the Lincoln Project the same day its founder admitting to sexually harassing college aged-men. John Weaver is also accused of one incidence of rape, and coercing young men into homosexual activity with the promise of delivering lucrative political employment.
The neocon campaign consultant pulled a Kevin Spacey, admitting he was “gay” and apologizing for his DM activity on Friday. He has denied responsibility for the most severe allegations of misconduct.
Establishment Wikipedia editors kicked into overdrive to protect the accused predator’s reputation the same day, working to purge any mention of the misconduct allegations from Weaver’s page on the platform.

The Lincoln Project also ignored the allegations against Weaver, merely stating that Weaver’s own partial admission of guilt “speaks for itself.”
Following the suspension of Donald Trump, Twitter has taken its place as a dishonest publisher acting in the interests of establishment and media political figures. Enough whining- it’s time for conservatives and those who support democratic debate with integrity to build free speech platforms such as Gab, Parler and Minds.
