At least one good priest is left to tell it like it is! The pope is a liar and is guilty guilty,guilty of continuing to cover up these despicable crimes against our children!And to further enable thousands of more molestations to protect the good name of the church?Any other person would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!

Of course the hypocrite and dead Catholic Church is being less than truthful, for they've known for CENTURIES that homosexuals targeted the priesthood.

ALL homosexuals are pedophiles, they love little boys. Not only do they go into religion, trying to get close to kids, but they target education for the SAME reason.

Anti-Christ doctrines at work. Nothing new here, except the perversion is growing so rapidly and embraced as normal by airhead masses of voter IDIOTS.

But...but...(prepare for sarcasm)- the pope can't lie! He's above all those earthly sins!(I received that message from an angel in my dream last night.)

Yes, the church is known for defrocking and excommunicating anyone who challenges them on policy or doctrine though sexually abusing children they protect those priests.

Marilyn - sadly, I must agree with you. I only want TRUTH, even if it hurts some Big Boys in the Church.

Why not just admit you have a tiny penis and be done with it? Every post you are just advertising how sexually insecure you are. LOL

And most pedophiles have a what is considered a heterosexual orientation.

Though I have to wonder if the person who is attracted to harming children, terrorizing them, robbing them of their innocence is of either of the sexual orientations when they are only attracted to the helpless, less powerful that can't defend themselves?

After all one of the priests associated with the current pope molested both sexes didn't he though it was mostly girls?

Hi Marilyn - I haven't kept up closely with all the cases. You probably know more than I do. I wish I could give you an answer, but at least at this point I don't feel qualified. Have a pleasant evening :)

Yes Marilyn,sexual acts against others is not really about sex acts themselves, these are acts of 'dominance/power/force and violence against/over others...
These perpitrators are satisfying other urges than the sex part...

I think scout has a hard time accepting he is a gay pedophile so he has convinced himself all gays are like he is.

All homosexuals are pedophiles, but some pedophiles that prey upon girls are not homosexuals.

Lesbians are not really homosexual, simply hormonal deranged.

You are just projecting your sexual attraction with children onto others out of guilt.
