The Protestant sects should also be investigated for the sexual abuse of children that occurs in their churches. THEY are waaaay overdue for a investigation as well. Since they have a higher rate than the Catholic sects.

Had the church and it's various arch dioceses, come clean with authorities in the first place, they would have done far less damage to their reputation than what they have now. The continued reluctance to give up the guilty has destroyed their credibility with all but the most faithful.

We know it's not just the Catholics. It's a disgrace, not just in the church communities, and most especially since they made oaths to serve 'our' Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The (some) Christian examples of the day make the unacceptable seem less offensive, though certainly not in this area. They will answer for that and God help those that suffered the scars, emotionally and physically, due to stumbling blocks that enter the podiums and pews on Saturday evenings, Sunday's, Wednesdays and all the other days they 'play' church. All too many couldn't be convicted in a court of law of being a Christian. There wouldn't be enough evidence. People are still blind and yet they want to pull a speck from their neighbors eye? Last I heard (Believe), Jesus isn't dead and therefore 'they'(not one human) shouldn't try to play God.

Well said. This has gone on for so many years and they need to pay the piper. The whole matter sickens me to the core. Why do 'they' protect these abusers?

I also appreciate your name. They demeaned the victims and protect the demented.

Thing is, you get these Protestants who try to claim that it is only in the Catholic sect. That there is no folks like that in the Protestant sect.
.
Thing is, there are monsters in human forms aka pedophiles in ALL religions. Be it Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Shinto, Muslim, Buddhist, etc....
.
Part of why folks go after the Catholic one. Is that many folks see it as a cash cow. That the Catholic Church supposedly keeps all of the donations it gets. Thing is 99.999999% of those donations head right back out the door to the various charities the Church deals with.

You're right. Pedophiles tend to gather where they will have access to children. They tend to lean towards professions that will also allow access to children.

And if any pedophiles get near my kid. Those monsters better have at least one heir. Because they won't be alive for much longer. Nor will the pedo's body be easily found. Since it will most likely be in a thousand pieces scattered thru the several counties of the metro area.

As has been said ... it is about time the St Paul Archdiocese of the Catholic Church came clean.

Put Archbishop John Nienstedt up on the stand and squeeze the truth out of him about how they have been shuffling personnel and hiding those that abused children. Then hold the Archdiocese of St Paul liable for all harm that has been done to the children.

After all of that, get a broom and sweep the place clean & bring in someone with integrity to manage this atrocity of a diocese.
