I received this note from Church Militant:
Church Militant filed a FOIA request and obtained the disturbing police audio recordings of Fr. Robert DeLand, now serving time in Michigan State Prison, caught in the act of preying on a 17-year-old male victim.
Get a first-hand glimpse inside the twisted mind of this depraved clergyman, and learn how Detective Brian Berg orchestrated a four-month covert operation to nab this predator priest.
Folks, I went through this and it sent shivers down my spine. Watching an autopsy can be fascinating in a morbid way, but this is the autopsy of an attempt to destroy a soul. This is demonic and not for the weak of heart.
One thing that this perverted, twisted, probably possessed priest said rang in my ears as familiar. To wit: Some of the manipulations that this sicko used on this young man sounded very much like the homosexualist propaganda of a certain highly visible Jesuit. “You’re okay! It’s okay to feel this way! Doesn’t it feel better to say it? Be who you are! I love you anyway”.
It’s diabolical. The twisting of the relationships of mentoring, friendship, authority, for predatory reasons is so evil.
