To Avoid Wrongful Death Lawsuit, Colorado Catholic Hospital Argues a Fetus Isnít a Person
HBO Documentary

There is a HBO Documentary called "Mea Maxima Culpa".

Watch it and then post your thoughts.

How far back and how deep did the cover-up go?

The greater the amount of money involved, the more crime that takes place.

Saw the documentary, disgusting!

The number of kids victimized is large and growing. The Vatican has the info in a vault and law inforcement wants them to release all of it.

The current pope was placed in charge of the worldwide complaints (and since 2001, every single complaint crossed his desk; with the approval of John Paul II).

The Vatican knew about these crimes and did nothing for the victims, but rather sent the priest to rehab and/or moved them around to victimize other kids.

It was stated in the documentary that "this is what young boys do when they are with other young boys (no girls around); a right of passage into manhood. Do you believe this?

The vatican felt like the young boys would get over the abuse as years would go by; no need for therapy. Do you believe this?

Alot of the victims sued the Church/Vatican/Pope/Cardinals/ Priests because they did not respond to anything else. It was reported that Cardinal Dolan moved money to a cemetary fund and then that parish filed for bankruptcy.

If the Catholic Church is to continue, major changes need to be made. Priests (man/woman) should marry if they choose to (gay or not). Priests (or anyone else) caught abusing children should be reported to civil law enforcement; Its The Law!

ACTION IS REQUIRED NOW!

Why are people not over the top angry about this coverup?

Why do you go on and on about kids that have not been born, but care so little for the ones that have?

Big difference in money?

I am just so taken back that more people are NOT outraged by this. I am not Catholic, but am outraged!

Why aren't Catholics DEMANDING reform in the Catholic Church?

Priests are HUMAN beings doing God's work. They have a higher level of accountability; they are NOT God. Don't you think?

Because Catholics are brainwashed. As kids we were almost taught to worship priests, as if they were superhuman, no matter how they behaved. Since they aren't allowed to marry, the priesthood tends to attract pedophiles. People refuse to admit how messed up this all is, and continue to follow all the man-made rules of the church.

The point is, "the fetus is NOT more important than the child".
Too much attention paid to abortion; not enough to children (after birth). Don't call names, it makes you look stupid.

On judgment day, each individual will answer for their own choices; not as a group.

"Those without sin cast the first stone"; didn't you learn this in religion 101?

Because so many parents "believed", these children suffered at the hands of these very "human" priests.

Open your eyes and ears!

The number of offending priests grows everyday.

The Cardinal that resigned from the UK ADMITTED he made sexual advances toward other priests. Heard that there was a report of male prostitues at the Vatican.

Now is the time for "ALL" to come out and change the church so it will be a safe place for ALL to worship!

So much money leads to too much corruption! Charity begins at home!

u open up ur tunnel vision, learn statistics of how many priests guilty versus how many priests in the world total. maybe the religion with the preacher that has dozens of wives, gets his own daughters pregnant at ages as young as 14 & throws all male children(sons) out of compound at young ages into the streets would b acceptable for u & ur family

Again, this is NOT baseball. Not interested in %. It is being reported that the priests that have been caught molested around 200 kids EACH. The Pope that just quit helped coverup thousands more. See the # keeps growing. Rumors have it that the Pope will live on the Vatican grounds for legal reasons (probably why he keep a portion of his old title too). It was reported that the Pope wanted all docs relating to his personal life destroyed, note was found in paperwork his Butler released. QUESTION you should have is: WHY?

What about the results of the investigation given to the Pope last year, don't you want to know the truth? Looks like it sent the old Pope running for the hills!

If you are so interested in %'s, then the % of abortions to births is small so why even think about it much less talk about it.

You have to be concerned with the whole life, not just the birth!

This is the time for the Catholic Church to come clean and clean house! I am against giving huge sums of money to the victims, but very much in favor of getting them phych help. I am very much in favor of punishing the molesting priests and the ones that covered it up - they BROKE THE LAW!

Keep in mind, Priests are HUMANS and should follow the same laws as other humans!

Think for a moment, do you think God supports the criminal activity going on in the Catholic church?
