Here's a good start on Morals 101....
#1: Facilitating child abuse is immoral, even if not technically illegal.
No matter what you say, I will continue to say Jesus would NOT allow a child-abuser or child-abuse facilitator to remain as an Apostle.
Your church says differently (see Cardinal Law).
I am glad you call me sick for disagreeing with your church. I am honored. Thank you.
Jesus built His Church on a guy who denied Him. Jesus knows we will all sin, what's important is whether we repent.

Have a nice day.

JETHRO:this like the other churches is a lie,show me where jesus states he is catholic and started the catholic church? for that matter any of the other churches you mentioned? again i ask the question why would he build his church in a country he has never been to, and enslaved his people,beat and tortured them? stole the scriptures from them, does that make sense to you?? if anything he should be destroying the church and restoring the scriptures to their rightful owners "everyone". the catholic church being the true church is as funny as a new york farmer starting the true church.
About 70 yrs after Christ died, Christians began calling themselves Catholic. Rome quickly became the headquarters.
These are facts Jethro.

If the Catholic Church is not the one started by Christ and not the true Church, then who is? Why?
If you say its Confrints Pentecostal community, I'm going to spit my beer over the floor.

Only Satan would still count people as members - who haven't been to Satan's RCC church in over 40 years.
If one does NOT want to be formerly counted, one must file a form and pay Satan money.

I don't want to be counted, but I also refuse to pay money to an organization which enables child abuse at orphanages.
".... created his website partly because of anger about the way the church covered-up or downplayed sexual abuse occurring in Catholic orphanages, boarding schools and seminaries."
The Catholic Satan worshipers here don't care about deeds, they only care about words -- exactly the opposite of what Jesus preached.
They say it's all the media's fault. In a sense it is.
Because for over 1500 years before the mass media, children had no recourse, except to be quietly raped and abused by RCC Priests.

<quoted text>the fish hat worn by the pope,rings,crosses,phalysis used at st. peters basilica,garbs worn by priests all come from paganism,the birth of jesus is not dec. 25th so how can they use a false date? all religious dates are meaningless, the church is suppose to be a place of honesty,love guidance,reassurance,but the opposite is true. lets reverse this what does the church NOT use that is pagan oriented??
I had read one reason the early Church Bishops put on their hats and robes (way before Constantine btw) was because they wished to be identified when the Roman soldiers stormed the meeting place of the Mass.
Christ is the good shepherd who lays His life down for the sheep. To be a Bishop pre Constantine meant certain death. The Bishops were arrested and executed. The hats and robes quickly identified them so no lay people would be taken away.
Confrint would run out the back door.. just saying..

anyway,
I'll try and find a link later.

You're taking a sin by members of the CC and pouncing on it; blowing it up and using it to promote your ideology.

I hope these two examples show you the stupidity of your statement.

You're half right. Humans are flawed. The 'dogma' is not because it teaches AGAINST sex abuse. Duh.
You must be reading a different bible than I am. Does yours have an 11th commandment? No?

Does yours not say that when the Israelis defeated another town, that they could take any virgin female as their wife? If you need, I can send you a copy.

Rather, it's your two examples that are stupid.

Imagine for 'example' a world where Charles Martel DIDN'T beat the Moors. It's only one of many, here's a tip; Huns, Goths, Vandals, etc.

"I just googled, "church sex abuse compared to the rest of the population"."

So what. Lot's of militant atheists out there like you who have a giant axe to grind with the Catholic Church. Have fun.

I have no interest in debating the bible with a militant atheist, it's like watching paint dry.

Hey clown, just produce the evidence that the pope knew bishops were covering up child abuse. Since it's so 'obvious' you should have no problem. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for pointing out where I made my mistake in using reality! Oh, wait... you didn't, you side step reality and went for the hypothetical.

Search the FBI files, they keep all kinds of stats.

OK, you win! Your popes are too stupid to read a newspaper and no one in the church dared to tell them what was going on under his nose. I can live with that. I guess you can too.

You may be right! Maybe those abuses were in the secret papers that the popes butler stole.

I wonder why the pope had secret papers.

Martel's defeat of the Muslim hoard was not hypothetical. The fact that the Catholic Church was responsible for building and safeguarding western civilization is not hypothetical.

Typically spoiled brat militant atheists have a better grasp of history. You, I think, just want to be a smart ass.

Again, Clay seeks to minimize "a sin by members" of the RCC clergy.

What Clay avoids is this is a sin, sure -- but a sin covered-up on 5 continents, including nearly every single diocese in the USA, including schools for the deaf in the USA and Europe, including orphanages in Inida --- by Apostolic Successors, who Clay believes somehow acted independently, but in the exact same manner worldwide.

Jesus must have allowed, or even led his vicars (Popes), Cardinals, and 99% of Bishops worldwide to cover-up this little sin.

Per Clay, Jesus must be OK with it.

How could 99% of the RCC's Apostolic Successors NOT KNOW --- that not stopping, but in fact enabling child sex abuse -- is morally wrong?

How could they NOT KNOW?

Answer: See how the Vatican rewarded Cardinal Law for his silence and for leaving the USA, rather than being forced to testify in over 90 abuse cases in Boston.

Not reporting child abuse is rewarded by the Vatican -- and some Catholics still claim Jesus led this BS.
