WHY, WHY, WHY, would Archbishop Dolan not have called the Milwaukee Police Department on these CHILD MOLESTERS?

WHY, WHY, WHY, hide and protect them?
They could not harm children from prison; and they might find themselves, and do some real good.

WHY, Dolan, WHY?

Virtually all priests who molest boys are homosexual to begin with.

Homosexual activist groups are distancing themselves from their fellow homosexual molesters.

Many of these activists are atheists, who loathe the Church to begin with.

Has anyone complained about any of the imams or other males mosque officials of molesting little boys?
Do you think muslims do not molest boys?

These crimes may not occur in the Middle East,
but in America, the liberals give muslims full immunity for virtually any crime.

Just look what there is in the White House.

you base your argument on unfouned opinion.

Most children molested by priests are boys, because there are no "alter girls."

that Dolan would then come out against contraception on a federal level makes me wonder if he truly is a "Man Of God", or just playing a part for the politics of it.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) first announced the payments on Wednesday upon discovering minutes of a March 2003 meeting of the Milwaukee archdiocese finance council meeting.

are you saying that they should have waited until after the election?
why?
..
and...., Dolan is the face of the Catholic Church in the USA, he knew this was going on, and had a hand in it, while touting the "purity" of Catholic Church.

The Crusades 1095-1272Rudolph J. Rummel estimates killed 1 million innocent civilian men, women and children.

In 1209, Pope Innocent III called for a crusade to exterminate the Cathar people of France (the Albigensians), simply because they had different beliefs to his owniefs. 200,000 men, women and children were butchered by the Pope's forces.

In 1233, Pope Gregory IX encouraged the extermination of the Stedinger people of Friesland, on the imaginary grounds that they were in league with the (equally-imaginary) Devil. The entire population was exterminated.

350,000 innocent men, women and children were killed during the Inquisition. The Spanish Inquisition under Ferdinand and Isabella was approved by Pope Sixtus IV in 1484.

Saint Francis Xavier brought the Inquisition to India, which tortured and executed thousands of innocent people.

100,000 people died as a result of witch-hunts. Pope Innocent VIII would blame people for bad weather, claim they worked for the devil and have them killed.

Only a few of the atrocities of the Catholic church throughout history. This church is a dangerous testament to what happneds when you combine power, money and religion.

So when is Dolan going to be defrocked, asked to leave the Church, and handed over to the civil authorities for aiding and abetting child abuse?

If he's not, we know that neither the Church nor civil authorities are serious about justice in these cases.

Chalk up another low for this lunatic, who now defends child molesters and those who aid and abet them in the name of religion and politics.

You should be banned for life from Topix. You're genuinely stupid and evil.

Absolutely false, dishonest, and despicable. Child molesters molest children because of their own mental illness. Homosexuals are not more likely to be child molesters than straight people are, in fact straight males are the most likely molesters.

Nice job of lying and trying to evade the issue with irrelevancies, douche.

Toronto muslim imam charged with 13 sex assaults....

http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/08/24/imam-...

It happens in other communities and faiths.

Look up some of the things Tarek Fatah(a muslim himself) and others have said about these issues. They say that within the muslim and communities in the west, domestic violence, abuse, sexual abuse also exists...it does not get reported as much because the communities do not cooperate with police, they have tight family-cultural issues, victims fear family reprisals etc..

Not only muslims, but within other immigrated communities as well

First, the priests almost universally were not "child molesters" as Mr_Bill continues to intentionally mislead readers. They were homosexuals and their primary targets were young men of puberty age, or in some cases slightly pre-pubescent... past childhood. This is an important distinction.

Second, the Liberal media refuses to delve further into the background of Dolan, i.e., was he an alumni of the seminaries taken over by homosexuals placing priests in position of authority to do this type of molestation and shift other deviant priests once discovered? Conspiracies like the homosexual takeovers and placement are multi-pronged in their targeted agendas. Discrediting the Church because of its hard-line stance on homosexuality is their main focus, but molestation itself is important, as is paying homosexuals for their "good" service.

Pre-pubescent isn't "past child age," idiot. LOok up the word. Pubescent refers to puberty, and anything "pre-pubescent" involves children. And of course according to the law, anything under the age of consent makes you a sexual predator against children.

You want to convict these priests of homosexuality, which isn't a crime, instead of pedophilia, which IS. You're an apologist for pedophile priests, plain and simple.

And disgusting.

The point was that homosexuals have taken a lot of trouble to distort the predominant problems, calling it pedophilia to take the attention off the actual nature of homosexuality. The vast majority of cases were not pedophilia and almost all cases involved homosexual priests, even with the few cases of female molestation. People need to see this as clearly as they need to be reminded that the infection of heterosexuals in America with HIV/AIDS came from radical homosexuals being guided by the televised threats from radical homosexuals to intentionally do so.
