Pedophile priest confesses his wrong doings in documentary
October 6, 2006

LOS ANGELES - The defrocked priest is by turns remorseful and flippant as he recounts in graphic detail a lifetime of sexually abusing children. Then, near the end of "the most honest confession of my life," he turns to the movie camera to wink and smile at his victims.

Oliver O'Grady's confession is the backbone of a deeply disturbing documentary about the Roman Catholic clergy abuse crisis in one rural Northern California diocese - a tale all the more unsettling because, for the first time, it is told in the words of an abusive priest himself.

O'Grady, 61, was deported to his native Ireland in 2001 after serving seven years in state prison for molesting two brothers. He has admitted abusing at least 25 children, and cost the Diocese of Stockton millions of dollars to settle civil sexual-abuse lawsuits.

Los Angeles Archdiocese spokesman Tod Tamberg has seen the film and called it an "obvious anti-church hit piece."

Tamberg seems a bit confused. It's priests who molest childen that are "obvious anti-church hit pieces".
