CATHOLIC BISHOP FATHERS A CHILD, WEARING ROBE?
As if they already do not have enough scandals to contend with, the Roman Catholic church is once again reeling in a scandal? One of their Bishops, Fernando Lugo of San Pedro, Paraguay has finally admitted to fathering a 2-year old love-child with his mistress, Viviana Carrillo; after denying for a long time until a treat of a paternity test forced his confession. Bishop Lugo acknowledged that he has not been truthful with the people of Paraguay and/or the Roman Catholic church; as he has been a deceitful philanderer, while adorning the cassock and other paraphernalia of a Bishop and pretending to live a life of chastity and celibacy? Icheoku says, the simple solution for these lecherous men in cassock having sex with alter boys and/or making babies while wearing the priestly collar, is for the Vatican to change its rule and allow these guys to just marry! They are human and human wants and needs are equally theirs, including sex! The 26-year-old paramour, Viviana Carrillo said she began having sexual relations with the 57 year old bishop since the past ten years when she was just a 16 year old innocent child? Icheoku says, were this bishop to be in the United States of America, he will be serving a prison term for statutory rape of a minor? According to the mistress, she first met Bishop Lugo when she was studying in preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation in his church at San Pedro, and that their intimate personal relationship began one night thereafter. Continuing, Ms. Carrillo said the Bishop began to pursue her "until, because of my youth and inexperience, I was seduced by the way he talked, his pretty words, his beautiful expressions and by his promises that he would resign his position for me, that he would spend his life with me, that we would have many children together and form a household" Concluding, she said Bishop Lugo had been "my first and only man." Pictured left is the Delilah, Viviana Carrillo who was seduced by the man of God, Bishop of San Pedro and now president of Paraguay? What is her place now that her then Bishop boy-friend is the president of Paraguay? What future awaits this young woman now that it has become public knowledge that she made her body available to an ordained bishop of God? Icheoku would encourage the two love-birds to formalize their relationship in the spirit of forming a household?
Fernando Lugo served as the bishop in Carrillo home town of San Pedro for ten years, until his resignation in December 2006, to campaign for president; which he won in April 2008. In July 2008, Pope Benedict XVI relieved Bishop Lugo of his chastity vows when he formally accepted his resignation from the Roman Catholic church? It is note-worthy that the Vatican had previously rejected his petition for a layman's status, citing that his ordination was a lifelong sacrament? However, it changed its position after Lugo won the election, when the pope granted an unprecedented waiver to allow him to serve as president without violating church rules. Icheoku says, the Vatican is known for its equivocation once it fits their template; from allowing some catholic divorcees to re-marry, to doing business with rogue oppressive governments around the world, to gun-running in Rwanda, to supporting porous border advocacy in the United States just to feed and augment their depleting flock of parishioners with new arrivals from down south across the fence. But the same catholic church keeps mum when other immigrants from the other side of the union are interceded in Florida and deported back to Haiti and Jamaica etc? In his "I did have sex with that woman" moment, Bishop Lugo conceded, "Here and now, before my people and my conscience, I declare with absolute honesty and a sense of duty and transparency in relation to the controversy provoked by the paternity suit, that there was a relationship with Viviana Carrillo. I assume all responsibilities . . . and recognize the paternity of the child." Icheoku says, like the usual line with cheating people, Bishop Lugo claimed that his initial stone-walling was simply to protect the privacy of his son, Guillermo Armindo Carrillo, who was born on May 4, 2007.
It will be recalled that Bishop President Fernando Lugo took over as president of Paraguay, from an institutionalized ruling party, the Colorado Party, the first time an outsider achieved that feat in Paraguay's 197-year history; with the ruling party willingly ceding power to an elected opposition.
However the present scandal ends, the catholic church has lost a lot of grounds with her faithfuls who are continuously questioning everything they have ever heard or learnt from the church somewhat due to conflicting character flaws of her ministers? Whether in the United States of America or now in Paraguay it has been 'do what I say but not what I do'? Anyway, the race for heaven is an individual effort and Icheoku encourages you not to put your salvation in the hands of such ministers of the church but in God who will reward each according to his/her deeds!
