"St. Angela Merici’s pastor called Michel a "good priest.""

I am continuously disgusted by this type of behavior. How can this happen over and over and over again without any sort of repercussions? The Catholic Church IS NOT DOING ENOUGH!

Stop the madness, please.

Why don't they run a headline about the Bank CEO and the TWO teenage bois like that?

Maybe the Bird could tell us what happened in Biddiford Me, 7/25/04 and 7 26/04, concerning the upstanding citizen/Skinner, that Alan Chartock just Championed in his Saturday column.

Hey Alan, WHAT WAS THAT LITTLE MISTAKE,... OR TWO???

Well, maybe more than two..........ssshhhh!!!

I agree. Frankly, the days of priestly celibacy are past. Priests should be allowed to marry, or have partners, male or female as long they are BOTH adults and consent. Another thing, women should be allowed to become priests and marry, or have partners, too.
Celibacy was not always the rule in the RC Church, but the pope did not want the priest's family to inherit what the pope thought belonged to the "church." Thus.........celibacy.

I can't believe people continued to follow Catholicism. They still can't see the church what it is. The church has done far more harm than good in this world. The church has committed atrocities after atrocities, the church enslaved people and anihilate races. How could the church be considered something of GOD? From the time of the inquisition to war-mongering conquest to sexual abuse of children; it's history is full of blood sacrifice and torturing yet people continue to ignore what's right in front of their eyes and follow this religion blindly. Are the fllowers of this institution aware of its history? most certainly but they are not not in the right state of mind. They're being somewhat brainwash. Catholicism is absolutely demonic and the world must be free from ITS evil spell or manking is doom.

I think you need to convert to the religion of peace, Islam.

Happy Jihaddy!!!
