New lawsuit rocks Orange, LA dioceses – sex abuse, wrongful death

The problem with child sex abuse is that for the victims and their families, the pain never goes away.

This month, the family of one of the alleged victims of one of Orange County’s most notorious predator priests filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Diocese of Orange and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

The wife alleges that her husband committed suicide as a result of years of inner torture after being sexually abused as a child by Fr. Eleuterio Ramos in the 1970s at Placentia’s St. Joseph’s Parish.

Fr. Eleuterio “Big Al” Ramos was a bad dude and left debris and disaster at every church where he was assigned.

This is the second lawsuit in just a few weeks. Will the Diocese of Orange try lie to the press about this one, too?

Sure, the Diocese of Orange and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles consider the crimes of Fr. Richard Coughlin of the All-American Boys Chorus and Fr. Eleuterio “Big Al” Ramos “old news,” but for his victims and their families, the pain is  breaking news, every day.
