You Catholic?
I mean, you're taking it kinda personal. Seems like only a Catholic would defend such horrific behavior, especially the institutionalization of it. What about your whole "law and order" stance? Church authorities aiding and abetting felons?
So unlike you.
Maybe he actually sees, it's Kinda like judging a barrel full of fruit (no matter what kind of fruit) and calling them all the same, because of a few rotted ones within it.

Just because you REFUSE to "open" your eyes and SEE the *TRUTH*
Does NOT mean it is NOT the TRUTH!
obama has ADMITTED his father is Kenyan, from Kenya. Kenya is in Africa. Africa at the time Barrack Hussein obama Jr. was born was UNDER British control. The British are who WE fought for Independence in the The American Revolutionary War.
WE WON! No longer a British colony!
Our Founding Fathers came up with a WHOLE NEW set of rules for the American people called The Constitution of The United States. In that there was a clause for the president of the US to BE a "natural born" citizen.
The ONLY two offices that REQUIRE that ARE:
the president AND the vice president of the United States!
Art I Sect II Clause 5
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States. The Law of Nations IS a part of the "law of our land" according to Chief Justice Marshall in 1815 according to a speech given by +++ Ruth Bader Gingsburg in 2010, as can be seen in links below.
From the birth of the United States as a nation, foreign and international law influenced legal reasoning and judicial decision making. Founding fathers, most notably, Alexander Hamilton and John Adams, were familiar with leading international law treatises, the law merchant, and English constitutional law. And they used that learning as advocates in legal contests.
The ***U. S. Constitution, in Article I, authorized Congress to define and punish “Offences against the Law of Nations,” and the very first Congress passed the Alien Tort Act, which empowers federal courts to entertain civil actions brought by an alien for a tort “committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States.”
The law of nations, Chief Justice Marshall famously said in 1815, is part of the law of our land. Decisions of the courts of other countries, Marshall explained, show how the law of nations is understood elsewhere, and will be considered in determining the rule which is to prevail here. Those decisions, he clarified, while not binding authority for U. S. courts, merit respectful attention for their potential persuasive value.
Decades later, in 1900, the U. S. Supreme Court reaffirmed that
“[i]nternational law is part of our law and must be ascertained and administered by [our] courts of justice ....[W]here there is no treaty, no controlling executive or legislative act or judicial decision, resort must be had to the customs and usages of civilized nations, and, as evidence of these, to the works of jurists and commentators, who by years of labor, research and experience, have made themselves peculiarly well acquainted with the subject of which they treat.”
Those works today, include the writings of many in this audience.
Article I
Section 8
Clause 10
10)To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;
More to continue ...

Does it state it must explicitly state "We declare war" in the resolution? I will help you out, no it doesn't.
The resolution must include the authorizing of military force.
Yes you idiot, it says "declare" and "war", not authorize spending or the "use of military force".

It is twisted logic to say it is defending the RCC to point out the lack of concern from Progressives when it relates to pedophilia at school.
And yet, the RCC paid hush money... worldwide... to keep it under wraps.

"I find it strange that equal disdain is not payed to teachers molesting students by the Left."
I am sure Carol did not use your strange interpretation of the post.
Then why the fck did you post it to me? Your implication was clearly that teachers were all on the left and don't say its me, the only other replies you got to this turd understood it the same way. In any case I disagree, I don't think you've seen the left or anybody else dismiss child abuse by teachers. Just part of your "right" world fantasy.

U.S. President Barack Obama ordered to provide Syrian rebels with American weapons, Reuters said with reference to an unnamed source in the administration. Military sources told The Wall Street Journal that a limited no-fly zone was going to be created above Syria, along the border with Jordan - a key U.S. ally in the region. There is a continuous flow of refugees into this country. In addition, American instructors train Syrian rebels in Jordan.

Someone drew this diagram yesterday. We can't expect them to find the bad guy without any data to narrow down who the bad guy might be.
As far as I'm concerned, they can scan phone numbers until the cows come home.
It's the emails and personal information collected by PRISM that's most concerning even though safeguards are supposedly in place.

France, UK, US (FUKUS). The FUKUS Axis is the Evil Empire, whose policies are controlled by the lobbies and corporations which place politicians in power or else close ranks around them after neutering their more progressive policies. We are speaking about FUKUS in particular and NATO in general. And a re-run of Libya in Syria.

Has anyone heard the phrase "a no-fly zone" before? You know, the one that was used "to stop Gaddafi bombing his own people". He wasn't. When SKY News was asked by Saif al-islam al-Qathafi to show him where the alleged bombings had taken place, they were unable to find them.

Does anyone remember the claims that oil-rick Iraq posed "an immediate threat" to the USA and its allies? It didn't. Does anyone remember the claims that Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction? He didn't and he said so, after Bush accused him of "stiffing" the world. The liar then was Bush, not Saddam Hussein.

Does anyone remember the lies that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons? They haven't. The UNO said so, and added that the probability was (duh!) that the ones using such weapons are the "opposition" (terrorists supported by NATO).

And now here we are again with the FUKUS Axis speaking about a "no-fly zone" initially near the Jordanian border, for humanitarian reasons, after American warplanes have already been stationed in the area.

Here is what will happen: a massive false flag operation will take place to incriminate the Syrian government, the FUKUS troops already on Syria's Jordanian border will move in, to "stop al-Qaeda taking control" of a situation they themselves started, there will be promises to Russia and China that the no-fly zone will be limited and regionalized.

Then after that there will be a spectacular mission creep, as we saw in Libya, then a manhunt will be launched against President Assad, and then children will be targeted (remember the Gaddafi grandchildren?) as "legitimate targets". Then we will see special forces on the ground ("we do not discuss the actions of special forces") and we will see an ever-growing army of Islamist fanatics entering the fray, financed by the Gulf Cooperation Council and backed by NATO.

This is the final stepping stone towards the Islamic Republic of Iran, and after this, the next stop on the line is Siberia (Russian Federation) and finally, the PR China.

Syria is the line in the sand. The West must be stopped. And now. Remember appeasement, and Hitler?

It hasn't worked out very well then has it.

Does it make a pedophile any less a pedophile, if it has NO religious label stuck to it? think not.
