Im Filipino Man,

They have their oown local version known as the Catholic Gay Squad of Manila!!! They frequent the bars of Ermita and like their foreign counterparts, their numbers are also increasing because of celibacy:

Homosexuality In The Catholic Church

"...In one of the very few studies based on hard data -- 1,500 interviews between 1960 and 1985 -- Maryland psychologist Richard Sipe, a former priest, concludes that about 20 percent of 57,000 U.S. Catholic priests are homosexual and that half of these are sexually active. But since 1978, Sipe believes, the number of gay priests has increased significantly; other therapists think the figure today may be closer to 40 percent...."

Im Filipino Man,

It is really a big disadvantage to the Philippines when these pedo Catholic priests are made to roam and stay!!! They victimize and corrupt Philippine society with their uncontrollable lusts for the young ones!!! Shameless pseudo-Vicars of Christ!!!

Telling the truth about the historical crimes of the Catholic Church is one way of fostering love and unity!!! There can be no unity but only hatred when the truth is cloth with the evil of indifference and apathy!!!

PA- Philly priest had abuse settlement in the past; SNAP responds

Posted by Barbara Blaine on January 04, 2013 · Flag

Shame on the Franciscans. They recruit, educate, ordain, hire, train, and transfer clerics, making them swear allegiance to the order for life. Then, when one of them molests, Catholic officials pretend to be powerless to stop him from working elsewhere. And in this case, Franciscans apparently lied to an abuse victim by claiming they’d keep this predator away from kids.

Now they claim, again, that Ledoux will be kept away from children. But if they broke their pledge once, why wouldn't they break it again?

How did the Franciscans react when a credible abuse allegation against Ledoux surfaced in Philly? By doing what Catholic officials have done for decades – quietly moving the offender to another church facility and telling no one.

And shame on Widener for doing poor background checks and being secretive about Ledoux’s exit from the school. Their irresponsible actions put kids at risk. And their claim that he never had unsupervised contact with kids is laughable. He was a trusted, high ranking school administrator. No one was ‘supervising’ him when he was around kids.

To read the story,

When the reporter refers to Michael LeDoux being an administrator for a high school and university in western PA, she means Serra Catholic High School and Duquesne University.

Looks like the Philly Inquirer needs the permission of the Zappala Crime Family and Donald Wuerl before they can report the facts in Allegheny County or the Pittsburgh Diocese?

Although, it should be noted that I, with the help of others, exposed Michael LeDoux weeks ago on several forums in the MOB Valley.

Michael LeDoux is now the second Franciscan cleric who served at Serra Catholic High School in the 80s and 90s to be credibly accused of sexually abusing innocent children, the other was Brother Kenneth Ghastin. A fellow colleague and I exposed Ghastin. It should be noted that after Ghastin’s case was settled with twin brothers in the Boston Archdiocese, sadly, one of the brothers would commit suicide.

Factor in the attempted murder of my son, and the suicide of the shooter. One can only surmise the extent that the Pittsburgh Diocese, Serra administrators, McKeesport elected officials, McKeesport Police and other law enforcement officers needed to do to make sure everything was covered up.

A fellow colleague and I reported on Ghastin’s abuse years ago. It should be noted that my colleague and I are not required to consult with the Zappala Crime Family or Donald Wuerl when reporting truthful information intended to protect innocent children and expose corrupt government officials and dirty cops.

Really? Where does the Bible state that?

"Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you." ~ Romans 16:16

"Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ." ~ 1 Peter 5:14

"For you, brothers, became imitators of God's churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own countrymen the same things those churches suffered from the Jews." ~ 1 Thessalonians 2:14

"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law." ~ Romans 13:8

""A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." ~ John 13:34

I'm pretty sure that the last one is taught even in cults like yours. You cannot call yourself the true church of Christ and then ignore his words.

What happened to the money resulting from the Catholic Church's papacy conducting beatification and canonization of alleged saints??? Roman Catholic popes conduct several beatification and canonization rites during their respective term in office!!! Beatification and canonization cost $20,000 and $30,000, respectively, for each saintly candidate!!! And here are the Blesseds and Saints Made By Pope John Paul II:

"In just over eight years, John Paul has produced 184 blesseds through beatification and 112 saints through canonizations, often giving many countries their first native role models for imitation or veneration.

"By contrast, Pope Paul VI made 31 blesseds and 82 saints in his 15 years of pontificate ending in 1978.

"There are critics within the Church who complain that John Paul has lowered the prestige of blesseds and saints by making too many of them."

Reference: The Manila Journal, May 3, 1987, p.2.)

Why can't the Catholic Church pay electric and heating bills in Italy??? Where is the money???

By definition, history, and by our bearing the name of Christ who is the head of the Church which He established in the first century, the Iglesia ni Cristo can easily be identified as true Christians:

1. By definition:

"Christian--From the Greek words Christos,'the annointed one': Christ and ian,'like','similar to'. The word refers to one who lives a life like Jesus, the Christ, are generally known."

Reference:[Miethe, Terry L. The Compact Dictionary of Doctrinal Words, p.56. Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA: Bethany House Publishers, 1988.}

2. By bearing the name of Christ who is the head of the Church, a biblical authentication:

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful." [Col. 3:15, NKJV]

"And He is the head of the body, the church..." [Col. 1: 18, NKJV].

3. By bearing the name of the Church which Christ purchased with His blood, a biblical authentication:

"Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood." [Acts 20:28, Lamsa Translation]

4. Historical authentications:

"5. Did Jesus Christ establish a Church? Yes, from all history, both secular and profane, as well as from the Bible considered as a human document, we learn that Jesus Christ established a Church, which from the earliest times has been called after Him the Christian Church or the Church of Christ."

Reference:[Cassilly, Francis B., S.J. Religion: Doctrine and Practice. For Use in Catholic High Schools pp. 442-443. Twelfth and Revised Edition. USA: Loyola University Press, 1926)

5. Authentications from Catholic and Protestants:

"This Church, founded and organized by Christ and preached by the apostles is the Church of Christ....It is the only true Church, and the one which God orders all men to join."

Reference:[Cassilly, Francis B., S.J. Religion: Doctrine and Practice. For Use in Catholic High Schools pp. 329-330. Twelfth and Revised Edition. USA: Loyola University Press, 1926

"....the Church of Christ today must be in nature, in power, in teaching, what it was when it served men through the twelve apostles. It is to this Church that all are obliged to belong in order to be saved. Those people who, though doubtful, deliberately refuse to join it, cannot be saved."

Reference:(Father Smith Instructs Jackson, pp. 60-61)

The "other sheep" of Christ known as the Iglesia ni Cristo is replete with biblical prophecies and testimonies!!! No one else!!!

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

The complete name of the Roman Catholic Church could be discerned from the book, Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, written by a Catholic priest, Clement H. Crock, and it states thus:

"In 1870, at the Vatican Council, the name 'Roman Catholic Church' was proposed, but it was rejected. The bishops assembled unanimously decided upon this official name:'The Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church,' as descriptive of Christ's Church."

This short quotation from a Catholic book amply answers the questions as to the origin of the official name of the Roman Church. The official name was fabricated at the Vatican Council in year 1870!!! Take notice that the fabrication of the mentioned official name took place hundreds of years after the ascension of Christ to heaven and the death of all the Apostles in the first century!!!

Therefore, the "Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church" has no connection whatsoever with our Lord Jesus Christ and His Apostles!!! It is therefore not a Christian Church because the name of Christ is absent in her official name!!! What is in the official name are those who caused sufferings and murders to both Christ, the Apostles, and the first-century Christians!!!

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

That is normal!!! Children in schools are always the cynosure of the eyes of Roman Catholic priests and Protestant ministers!!! Slowing is their means of selecting the best of the possible victims!!!

What's your choice?

To believe that the head of the true Church is the Vatican Pope ...

"Vicar of Christ:the Pope as visible head of the Church,acting in place of Christ..."

Reference:[Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. Catechism for Filipino Catholics, p.676]

...or to stand by what the Holy Writ teaches?

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful." [Col. 3:15, NKJV]

"And He is the head of the body, the church..." [Col. 1: 18, NKJV].

"Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood." [Acts 20: 28, Lamsa Translation]

Note:

The Roman Catholic Church claims that it is the true Church and is headed by the Vatican Pope!!! But the Holy Writ has no agreement at all to these spurious claims!!! For the Bible teaches that our Lord Jesus Christ is the sole head of the true Christian Church or Churh of Christ and no one else!!! There is no mention in the Scriptures at all that Christian Church is headed or to be headed by a Pope!!!
