SSPX, Rape and Cover-up

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Erica Kauffman, an SSPX follower in the USA, has released a video on YouTube detailing her traumatic experience with the SSPX and a priest she says raped her on several occasions. Their response to her pleas for help in the late 1990s was to ignore her, to send lawyers after her, and to move the priest in question around. He’s apparently currently at an SSPX school in France.

The mainstream Catholic Church has had to deal with cover-ups of this nature on the part of our bishops and cardinals. The SSPX would do well to learn from the Catholic Church’s mistakes.

The Remnant, a traditionalist Catholic website, has commentary on it here:

I embed the video below, small, so you should rather go to YouTube and view it there.

    I don’t believe her.

    25 years late. Claimed she could not afford a lock for her door? Really? A new key and barrel set cost 20 dollars. A security chain 10 dollars

    1. Your criticism is answered in the video and again in the comments below the video. Her story is very coherent, her actions make perfect sense in the context of gender-based violence, and so I believe her.

      A French NGO has sent her the latest photo of the priest in question. They suspect him of sexual misbehavior in France.

      1. Thanks for that information. Very disturbing indeed.
