Creepy Crawler Ex-Phoenix Priest George Bredemann Dies In Prison

Categories: News
Stories about pedophile Catholic priests have become de rigueur in recent years, in Phoenix and around the rest of the world.

Child-molesting Phoenix priest George Bredemann, dead. 

But some of us "oldsters" remember some of the very first detailed accounts of the disgusting diddlers and how those in charge--Bishop Thomas O'Brien here in the Phoenix area--were going to extreme lengths to cover up the criminal goings-on.

We published one of those stories back in 1989, a startling piece entitled "Father Joe" by Terry Greene Sterling, who worked here for many years and was a great colleague. 

It told the story of one George Bredemann, a priest whose young victims included many Phoenix-area boys, and how the church and (for a time) the criminal-justice system had continued to allow him to operate with impunity long after he should have been locked up.
Here is that story, which we re-read yesterday after learning of Bredemann's death at the Arizona State Prison in Buckeye. He was 69.

It's an ultimate creepy-crawler read.

Father George, a onetime executive for the Boy Scouts of America, sexually abused at least 15 boys before becoming a priest, and at least eight after. Authorities re-arrested Bredemann in 1990, after he served less than a year in the Maricopa County Jail as part of a plea bargain.

He was on lifetime probation at the time, and was in Miami trying to flee to Brazil.

Turns out that Bredemann's biggest supporter, Bishop O'Brien, had known of past allegations against the guy prior to his ordination.

The last mention of Father George in the media came last November, in a column by the Arizona Republic's veteran columnist E.J. Montini.

It was a story about a Catholic couple whose son had been one of Bredemann's victims a few decades earlier, and how disgusted they were that Bishop O'Brien is slated to be one of three honorees at an upcoming gala church fundraiser.

Montini pointed out that O'Brien in 2003 signed an agreement with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office granting him (the bishop that is) immunity from criminal charges if he admitted--which O'Brien did--that he had exposed children to harm and implemented policy changes within his diocese.

Shortly after that, Phoenix police arrested O'Brien on charges of leaving the scene of an accident after his car struck and killed a pedestrian at the intersection of 19th and Glendale Avenues. The bishop wound up doing some "community service" in that one.

George Bredemann wouldn't have been eligible for release from prison until 2034 when, had he lived, he would have been 92 years old.

His last listed job inside the prison walls was as a "auto mechanic."

I read up on this particular Priest & it disgusts me to the point of physical illness! I can say with certainty that this man has destroyed several poor young boys views of life and religion and in doing so has also destroyed several peoples lives even decades later! The families of the victims, the spouses, the children, the victims themselves! Very sad! It is hard to have a christian heart when viewing this case, forgiveness just isn't an option here!

Here's hoping he goes straight to the ninth circle of hell with no layover or plane change in Atlanta or Purgatory.

Amen and God speed!

It's even more unfortunate that the Authorities in Arizona and Colorado kowtow to the Mormons by letting the sexual abuse of your girls continue in Colorado City and Hilldale.

Yeah, I know that the LDS claims no relation to the FLDS but, note the letters LDS in both. If the mainstream LDS is truly "appalled" by the actions of the FLDS, why haven't they stormed these pedophilic  paradises and rescued the girls being abuse there? Why aren't they lobbying the state to ENFORCE THE LAWS AGAINST SEXUAL ABUSE OF MINORS AND THE LAWS AGAINST POLYGAMY?

It's unfortunate that the courts can't aggressively go after Bishop O'Brien.  I encourage all to follow two recent news stories about Priest Pedophilia Coverups, which could have deep reverberations across the United States.  In Philly, Monsignor Lynn is facing a current trial for covering up details of Pedophile Priests, under the watchful eyes of Cardinal Bevilacqua (recently deceased).  In Missouri, Bishop Finn, was told just today that he was considered to be a "Mandatory Reporter," on issues of Priest Pedophilia.  He'll stand trial in Sept.  When bishops are made to exchange their expensive, brocade vestments for little, orange, prison jumpsuits, the coverups of Pedophile Priests will end!  It's about time!

A horrible man who destroyed so many lives.  And yet, O'Brien lives free of charge, the man who allowed so many child rapists to run rampant.

He dies on good Friday and he will rise again on the third day, or whenever a young boy walks by!

I was a parishoner at St Catherine's in the 80s and was always inspired by father George's  enthusiam during the homily.  When this story broke, I thought it was a bunch of hooey and so did many others.  I even remember a local newscaster (I want to say Frank Camacho?) addressed the parish on media matters regarding this incident.  This was about the time it became really hard for me to be catholic.

Happy Easter.

that was awesome. Extremely long, off-topic comments full of ALL CAPS and misspellings are always convincing arguments to me.

Watch the trials of Monsignor Lynn in Philly and Bishop Finn in Missouri.  Then, see if there are any similarities where Bishop O'Brien can be called into court!

If Monsignor Lynn in Philly is found guilty for endangering children by not reporting Pedophile Priests, the floodgates of similar lawsuits in EVERY Diocese across the United States and Canada will follow!  One at a time......  One at a time....... in a painful sequence of trials and exposures.  Members of the Hierarchy will be seen for what they really are: NOT "Men of God," but simply over-paid Administrators and puppets of the Vatican. In 1982, the Vatican put out a Top Secret Directive and sent it to EVERY bishop in the world, telling them how to silence those abused by members of the clergy, and how to AVOID SCANDAL being brought to the Church. In the event that anyone takes offense to the words, "Vatican puppets," please Google "Crimen Sollicitationis English Version" and you will see how most bishops, archbishops and cardinals acted in accordance with this Top Secret Vatican Directive!
