Catholic Priest, Forgiven By Church For Raping 29 Children, Stabbed To Death

A Massachusets priest, who was accused of molesting 29 children only to have his crimes "forgiven" by the Catholic church, has been found stabbed to death at his home.

A Massachusets priest, who was accused of molesting 29 children only to have his crimes “forgiven” by the Catholic church, has been found stabbed to death at his home. 

After failing to attend a church service, Father Archambault’s brother visited his house and found him “bound and gagged” with stab wounds to the chest and a gaping wound where his genitals once were.

Police believe the priest was tortured before his death “by more than one assailant” and died after a “very large blade” – probably a machete – was inserted into his rectum, damaging several internal organs.

Father Archambault, a lifelong priest, was accused of abusing 29 local children with victims ranging from 5- to 11-years-old. After the first complaint against the priest was quietly swept under the carpet, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield received an avalanche of further complaints against the priest and were forced under Canon law to refer the issue to the Vatican.

The Vatican immediately announced that it was a church matter, telling families there was “no need for the police”, and then dismissed three of the accusations, citing a lack of evidence.

Due to the Catholic Church’s internal protocols, the remaining 26 allegations were tried under Canon law which operates outside of the boundaries of the regular law. Proving how out-of-touch the church is with the rest of society, the priest was not charged with child abuse, and it was accepted that all of the 26 children “consented” to sex with the 42-year-old priest.

In the eyes of the church, the problem was that Father Archambault had “casual sex” with 26 partners. For this sin he was punished by being sent to a retreat in Alabama for a month to seek forgiveness through “prayer and penance.”

Father Archambault was killed shortly after returning from the retreat.

Families of the child victims abused by the priest were outraged by the church’s handling of the case and launched an appeal by writing a joint letter to the Pope, signed by parents and prominent members of their community, demanding that the matter be turned over to law enforcement.

Father Archambault’s body was found at his Northampton, Massachusets residence.

They didn’t receive a reply from Pope Francis, but did receive an official response from the church telling them that the case against Father Archambault “is now closed.

A police spokesperson said they are investigating and “following leads” in the case of Father Archambault’s death. They believe the killing may be the work of vigilantes responding to the lack of justice handed down by the Catholic church’s investigation.

A statement released by the diocese said the Catholic Church expects the “full force of the law to be used” in bringing the priest’s killers to justice.

      That’s the Vatican cult for you Samantha – rotten and hypocritical to the core! Full of heresy and hypocrisy and filthy rich and full of intrigue and connections to the Mafia and C.I.A. etc. and are in bed with Islam yet they claim to be God’s holy church!

    • Nina Marrocco

      Exactly, tell’s you who is running thing’s does’nt it!

    • Teresa Reilly

      The Vatican think he was more important than the children that he destroyed. The Vatican think they are above God. They have just found out ..that is definitely not the case!

    This “priest” finally received justice here on earth, but that’s nothing compared to him being in hell under the ‘wrath of God’ for an eternity. “After failing to attend a church service, Father Archambault’s brother visited his house and found him “bound and gagged” with stab wounds to the chest and a gaping wound where his genitals once were. Police believe the priest was tortured before his death “by more than one assailant” and died after a “very large blade” – probably a machete – was inserted into his rectum, damaging several internal organs.”

    What a shame that this heretical CULT turned the other way when all these kids were either raped or molested, but now they hypocritically demand the “full force of the law to be used” against his murderers.

    I am thankful that the LORD rescued me from this unbiblical religion, here’s my story. http://www.theexpositor.tv/blog/the-testimony-of-lapd-officer-bill-rhetts-and-how-the-lord-used-him-in-a-gun-battle-at-a-church-in-los-angeles/

    • staycoolandbelieveinJesus

      I was raised catholic,…. did me a lot of damage….. then I found the Bible..then I started studying it… then Jesus repaied all the damage the catholic church did to me… Read your Bible and get set free from your demons…

      • wiford123

        Are you kidding me?, Reading the bible is what made me an Atheist. There is no way I am going to worship that sadistic maniac.

    • Nina Marrocco

      You and me both Bill. I knew it was Satan’s church when I was 7 years old when they held the ritual of Eating Christ’s body and drinking his blood (the body of christ) the Eucharist and the Wine (the blood of christ)!!!! Oh, and they did mass in Latin pfffft!

  • bring back the biff

  • Yosariancatch22

    I just love happy endings!
    This was the best story I have read in a long time.
    May he burn in Hell’s fire forever.

  • Yosariancatch22

    Ok.. so as much as I was excited to hear this story and the outcome .. it seems that this might just be a BS story after all.
    Other news sources (when cross checking) show this guy shot himself back in 2016.
    Anyone else finding similar facts ?

  • Joseph D’Hippolito

    There’s a reason why the Catholic Church forgave this priest and allowed him to remain a priest. The Catholic Church preaches a kind of “vending-machine” forgiveness that has nothing to do with true repentance or accountability for one’s actions. I say this as a former Catholic. I remember about 30 years ago when Mother Teresa told Indians immediately after the Union Carbide disaster at Bhopal that killed thousands that they had to forgive. To me, that’s inhumane. One needs to process the tremendous grief at the unexpected loss of a loved one before even contemplating forgiveness. Christians are called to mourn with those who mourn and grieve with those who grieve. For a woman who saw more than her share of human tragedy and death, her position is mind-blowing.

    As I write this, I think that “vending-machine” forgiveness has to do with the idea of “penance,” that someone who sins can perform some kind of compensatory work to relieve his guilt. That kind of approach reduces the seriousness of sin and the necessity for true accountability.

    the full force of what law? Canon law too….lets hope

    Due to the Catholic Church’s internal protocols, the remaining 26 allegations were tried under Canon law “which operates outside of the boundaries of the regular law.

    Something here is messed up. I have heard Pope Francis for condemning this, not excusing it. Yes the ” “Holy Sea” or Vatican is infested. There is no doubt. But the only difference between the Catholic Church and Christian is the Eucharist. We still go by the bible. Not a bible rewritten by other religions. THE bible. The original. And it teaches about injustice. It has much about praying for strength against against injustice and corrupt dignaries and power. Christ doesn’t just “forgive”. You can’t just say I’m sorry and be forgiven with ten Hail Mary’s. You must be sincere in your asking for forgiveness and never do it again.. not only that but just injustice to the inflicted is wrong.. injustice is what at we pray for strength to stand up against.

    I need to check on this…

    • Isame

      Francis the chief heretic when a cardinal in Argentina was said to have toed the official Vatican line on clergy sexual abuse which was to stymy and obstruct all attempts to seek redress by and for victims of clerical paedos. Should we expect any different kind of response to this from him?

  • Ronald Brown

    Rectum? Dam right killed him.
    Nothing wrong with this justice.

  • Nina Marrocco

    What’s all the laughing about taking him out on the stretcher, hmmmmmmm… Make’s one really wonder.

  • Peter J Davis

    May he rest in hell.

  • Barb Martin

    “It’s a church matter” when Fr. Archambault abuses 29 children ages 5-11, “no need for the police.” But when the priest gets his just desserts for his heinous behavior, then the church calls for “the full force of the law.” Why were the police superfluous when those children were being molested?

    • Libby Ashford

      Archambault…..sick (S.O.B)…JUSTICE HAS BN SERVED.

  • Melissa Halford

    Good, they cut his genitalia off. They should have made him eat them.

  • Jonathan Knox

    Church said thy want the full force of the law to find the killers, but did not allow them to punish a 29 x pedophile who was harming kids in his own flock. Since when can a Priest have casual sex. and with a child–that Church protects the Devil now.

  • Melton

    I think this is a fake story.

  • Guest123456

    I read elsewhere that he shot himself in 2011. So which is true?

  • Bob

    This priest committed suicide years ago. How fake can you be? But I guess anything to make money off people’s ignorance.

  • Roy Sjolander

    Who says there’s nothing bit BAD news these days? This is the most uplifting article I’ve read in a long time.

  • Russ Bond

    Fake News. The real father committed suicide in 2011 when he was accused.

  • islandwoman2

    May there never be a clear path to the suspects

  • Ragman69

    Now all of the sudden the church wants to use our laws to bring the killers to justice? Something wrong with this “pick which law you want to abide by” shit. I hope the people that did this to this priest feel better. It won’t make everything all better. Actually…they who did this will go to jail.
