According to the complaint, the rape occurred in 1986 or 1987. The victim and two other boys were pulled out of class at Holy Cross Catholic School by older students who the victim believed to be altar boys, the complaint alleges.
Agents say the three were led to a room where Archuleta and another priest, who is not identified in the complaint, offered them cookies and punch.
The victim told agents the boys ate the treats before the unnamed priest took the other two away and left him alone with Archuleta.
The complaint alleges that Archuleta then made the boy kneel on a chair, removed the boys pants and wrapped a belt around his chest so he couldnt move. According to the complaint, Archuleta poured a cup of water down the boys back, telling him it was holy water and would help with the pain. The victim told agents that Archuleta then raped him as he repeated, This is Gods love; this is how we show Gods love.
He was in tremendous pain and was crying violently, an agent wrote. He is unsure how long the encounter lasted.
Agents say that after the ordeal, the unnamed priest brought the other two boys, who were crying uncontrollably, into the room and all three were sent back to class.
That’s a level of evil I can hardly fathom. The Devil owns that man. I hope those boys healed somehow. If they lost their faith because of him, there will be Hell to pay.
Is this a death penalty offense? It should be. 0.70 USD would solve this problem.
