LOL - good one!

Anyway, who cares what the pope accepts? I'd love to see the results of an in-depth psych evaluation on him - but NOT by a Catholic shrink.

LOL - Note the "judge" icons again - Catholics wouldn't care if Jack the Ripper became pope - they'd obey everything he said!

Retirement? With full pension and medical benefits??? Whatever happened "once priest- always a priest? He should not be allowed to retire. He and many should be stripped of their titles of "bishop" and made back to diocesan priest or pastors...what about that priest shortage???

It was the excuse by many to keep the pedophiles as "priests" and move them around: "Once a priest always a priest..

You are so right about the "obedience" Except that these aren't "Catholics". They threw out vows of chastity and poverty.... the only obedience that they have is to the devil and his works.

The 4 marks of the true Catholic Church is One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic which leaves out the vatican II novus ordo church.

And when are they going to investigate the diocese of Camden, NJ. The Philly pedophile priests hung out with many pedophiles priests from camden diocese. Those pedophiles from philly should list names of their accomplicese from new jersey. Many priests from diocese of camden, nj were partying it up in philly especially with young seminarians. Wasn't there a young seminarian from Atlantic city sexually harassed in the past by priests from philly and south jersey???!!

The novus ordo does more to protect its perverts while putting down the victims. Victims are painted as money hungry liars who hate the "church".

I remember being taught those "four marks" in catechism when I was a kid!

Not sure, but I think it may have been Vatican II that started my doubting and disgust of the RCC. I do have some pleasant memories when I was young, and never questioned a thing.

No wonder so many of our our elected officials and world leaders are corrupted because many of our religious leaders are poor examples.

If you think the Philly is full of pedophile clergy , then you should check out the Camden NJ diocese.
the ones who are in court now should name some of their buddies from Camden , NJ diocese.

We know for a fact that many priests from philly party with priests from south jersey.

Hi Ann,

I enjoy your posts. Am I correct in my belief that novus ordo was pretty much kept secret? Thanks in advance.
