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.
Good job!
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.

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.
Yeah, good try though.

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.
Those secrets that were plastered all over the media? I missed the ones that confirmed he knew. Can you help?

of course I believe it. That's why I'm Catholic and not anything else.
Do I believe the slander laced propaganda handed out by you guys? No! Its easily proven as a lie.
You're taking a sin by members of the CC and pouncing on it; blowing it up and using it to promote your ideology.
If you guys were speaking truth, id acknowledge it and join ya.
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.

Have a nice day.
Anthony is forced to say Jesus would allow child sex-abuse among His Apostles.

I disagree.

I'm sure Anthiny would disagree too, if it didn't destroy his church's "one true" claim.

How sad. What's wrong with being a good church, the first church, etc. But the only church?

This is what creates the evil.

This is what forces otherwise good men (probably) to go back on their morals, in order to defend the indefensible.

Again......

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.

Interesting that the CC says that it gave the Bible to us...but among themselves, call it a Protestant book.
Thanks for your story. Interesting.
KayMarie[/QUOTE]

Your quote “among themselves call it a protestant book”

We don’t call OUR Bible a protestant book!!!

There is protestant bibles tho, they are incomplete. So it is a protestant bible!

Kay, you would not have a bible if it were not for the first Christians called Catholics. It was "the Catholics" that sat for hours/months/years translating it by hand, and put it together. No protestants around in those days!!!

Catholics hear THE WORD when they go to mass, our mass is ALL bible base.
Every bit of the whole hour is bible base. Unlike your churches where you read one verse and dissect it for the whole service.

Happy 5th day of Christmas!

I say Jesus would NOT allow a child-abuser or child-abuse facilitator to remain as an Apostle.

After all, Jesus told the world how he felt about those who would harm children.

The RCC says Jesus was mincing words and really didn't care if children were abused by his Apostles.

I stand with the exact words of Jesus on this.

The RCC simply cannot be "appointed and guided" by Jesus. The Bible tells me so.

"... for ye shall know them by their deeds."

awwww .... isn't that s.p.e.c.i.a.l?
I suppose the pope WOULD have to forgive the guy who exposed his office of covering up the antics of pedophile s ... otherwise he would be shown to be a hypocrite, now, wouldn't he?
I mean, if the Pope covers up for pedophiles, and somebody with a BRAIN comes in and exposes the hierarchy's cover-up ... what else can the Pope do?
I hope the butler get a good job, and is able to support his family in peace. But I predict a much different outcome.
You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
The 'truth' sets you free from all the lies. I wonder if the butler will remain Catholic?
Regarding the Pope’s forgiveness of the butler thief…..

YOU SAID IT!! Our Pope is SPECIAL!!! Thanks be to GOD!!!

Is there proof that he coved up pedophilia ?? Do you have inside information? NO
DID THE docs show a cover up?? NO
The thief was in prison because he stole docs, he did it for money.
Would you hire a thief? Guess wifey poo will have to get a job now.
The butler better repent, and yes he will remain Catholic, imo. Stop bearing false witness, sinner.
The only truth that will set YOU FREE, is coming back to the Church that Jesus started. Period!

Stop spreading lies and stop listen to your anti-Catholic pastor.

Happy 5th day of Christmas!

Actually it's protestantism, by virtue of it's constant splintering, bickering, and mauling of scripture that Jesus was referring to as tares. Jesus didn't found thousands of competing protesting sects, He founded one, true Church. The Catholic Church.
AMEN!!!!!

I don't think you know what the word 'facilitate' means.

You're right that Jesus wouldn't allow such an apostle who's unrepentant. He did however forgive much graver sin by a repentant apostle. There MAY be something about that in your abridged Jefferson edition.

My question is; what do you know about repentance in general and specifically Cardinal Law's?

Q.
Did Our Lord write any part of the New Testament or command His Apostles to do so?

A.
Our Lord Himself never wrote a line, nor is there any record that He ordered his Apostles to write; He did command them to teach and to preach. Also He to Whom all power was given in Heaven and on earth (Matt. 28-18) promised to give them the Holy Spirit (John 14-26) and to be with them Himself till the end of the world (Mat. 28-20).

He did comand them to built His Church. Mt 16:18

The Holy Scriptures belong to God. The Bible is for all people to all people from God .It is neither catholic or protestant.

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.
Jethro lives in his own little world. He would have made a good Fundie. Too bad he doesn't believe in God.
(And now he's trying to interpret scripture, lol!)

Can you tell me how so many priests were convicted and your pope didn't know? One would think that after the first one being accused, the pope would know about it, but then again, you may be right. The pope would not be the first 'leader' to be completely clueless.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_sex_abu...

In the 1950s, Gerald Fitzgerald, the founder of a religious order that treats Roman Catholic priests who molest children, concluded "(such) offenders were unlikely to change and should not be returned to ministry," and this was discussed with Pope Paul VI (1897 – 1978) and "in correspondence with several bishops."[6]

But there is your proof. Any more denials?
