It's religion... you can't define it, you most certainly can't expect rationality, and contributions, by definition, aren't theft.

I am being trained by this man. And he doesn't seem like the kind of man you are talking about. I don't know though. Where can I go to find out. I mean to me he seems like an honest man. He just lost his church last week. Sold to an unorthodox pastor, who really doesn't know much about the bible. Ft. Vic seems more honest then the pastor who just got his church.

All of his dipolmas are off the internet you can find anything off there and download and print them then frame them For the amount of credentials he has he would of had to be in college for years I think he has only been running around saying he is a priest for 3 years but has 20 years of dipolmas If you look up the catholic religion It states if you have been convicted of a felony you can not be a catholic priest and he has He stole money form me with his phony school!!!!!!!!!

Sure he is an Honest Man. He will tell you that Stupid people give him money, why not, he offers his services to them and they feel saved while saving him from the dept. monsters chasing him. Old people will give anything to be closer to God. Even give their entire life savings, so Victor took an opportunity to take while preaching the word of God. Which one ! Who knows.
YES, he paid for his sins, now he has to repay for the new ones, as far as his home life, better look over your own shoulder before slamming someone else.
Agreed, however I've been scammed by a priest,

Just read the Pittsburgh Catholic somehow this man is a bishop now all this in 7 years he bypassed seminary school everything Looked up the man who made him a bishop he just got out of jail for grand larceny and milking people out of money Just look up Archbishop John P Walzer.He didn't learn any lesson this was after he was in jail for bank and real estate fraud in the 70 and 90's I think 20 years. Hes being watched up in Hartford CT I think they all have a thing of deceiving the public and stealing there money. Zubik is saying if you deal with this religion you separate from the roman catholic church. I think they think they can steal as much as they want and just do a small prayer and be forgiven. These people are counseling, marrying, baptizing and more to people and they have no idea. If you have an elderly person that you are close to and they are around this crew you better watch their bank account because they will make it disappear. A BISHOP WHAT A JOKE

Amusing thread.

The world's oldest and largest child rape and torture ring, knowingly funded by US Catholics, built entirely upon lies, and the greatest supplier of crimes against humanity and atrocities too vile to mention throughout history and on to today, has a leader suspected of some transgression.

Talk about can't see the forest for the trees. Wow.

Stop funding evil.

Huh? You didn't think felons could be priests? Where have you been for the last decade?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_sex_abu...

Over 4,000 rapists currently protected from the church as fugitives from justice
Over 8,000 children raped and tortured in the US alone since 1997 by the church
Over 2 billion in hush money given to families

EVERY CATHOLIC is funding this evil and providing the foundation for these atrocities.

It is unfortunate that the people who lie to children and terrify them with made-up images of hell are the ones who actually belong there.

Wow, bacon-butt! Usually you backwoods bubbas are self-professed bible-thumping super Christians... or are you one of the anti-Catholic, anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic pukes? Or just a simple garden variety bigot without any religious convictions?

I guess the latter. Religion is evil and is a direct threat to the survival of civilization. It always brings suffering and never brings prosperity, as well as most of the wars, suffering, suppression of science and medicine and the bulk of all atrocities in human history. Delusions are always bad, and it doesn't matter what particular version of a delusion you have.

Conservatives nearly gave the launch codes to Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney, one of which believes that a man lived to be 900 years old and built a giant boat while the other believes that god lives on a planet called Kolab (he also wears special underwear to protect him from evil spirits).

This would be a funny joke if it wasn't exactly 100 percent true.

After that admission, the rest of your answer became utterly irrelevant, bubba.

Clearly you often draw conclusions based on limited or truncated information.

You demonstrate that often.
