Your heartfelt beliefs are not facts. We acknowledged it, we have paid heavily for it. We have worked on it and still are. What you are cultivating is hate. Just read seres posts and the ones posted by the Protestants who cheer you on when you attack the church.
I am still going with the Orthodox statement I posted that you have no right to make claims like you do. The initiatives have been extensive and the church is global in nature. I would suggest you focus on the sickness in your institution rather than grandstanding with heartfelt beliefs rather than facts.
All churches, schools, insitutions need guidelines, practices and education and universal policies to deal with these issues. The best way to deal with offendors is something noone has an answer to. 3 month sentences are no answer.
Seminarians are now administered tests before being allowed, reporting policies, etc. have been implemented, training, laity councils to investigate, the involvement of civil authorities. We posted several times the numerous things the church has done and continues to do. The results of those efforts have already shown very positive results. I would like to see any institution that has done as much as the church.
To quote Pope Benedict, "This evil must be purged from our midst."
Interesting words from one who spent years denying the evil even existed in the first place.

Today, the sin of decades of lies and denial is quickly forgotten.

But it wasn't self-reflection and honesty that drove the RCC to the truth.

Nope, a police raids on a RCC bishops conference in Belgium helped the "teacher of perfect morals" see the light.

A few years after that, a RCC spokesman thanked the world media for forcing the RCC to confront the problem.

Yes, it's true! Jesus used the media to guide the RCC. They wouldn't listen to Jesus alone it seems.

With all the information available in 2013, its not logical to assume the Bible appeared out of the sky and the Apostle passed it around for the folks to figure out their own Christianity.
I use that analogy because they use the Bible against the Church upon which it came.
Well, reason and logic suggests that's impossible since you'd have to agree the Holy Spirit evidently was with the Catholic Church during the compilation of the Bible. Right?
So now the dilemma people face is: thinking Christ Jesus let His Church get infiltrated and spread the wrong gospel for a thousand + yrs... only to have some born agains read the Bible and decipher their own 'truth'.
Is that last scenario logical?
The fundies are here to make the RCC seem less absurd.

You should thank them.

After that, you should ask yourself if the greatest power in the universe forgot most of humanity, or if maybe there is more than one path to understanding this great power?

This board worked all day yesterday to prove my point.

The actual teachings of Jesus are just a smoke screen for many Xians -- to validate themselves, not to honor a God of morals and ethics.

Not the RCC's fault, just a few rogue Archbishops, Cardinals, and a Pope or two maybe....

“The Catholic Church here in Scotland, and I am ashamed to admit this, has justified itself to Catholic papers by telling lie after lie, denying charges that are true, and claiming they have been defamed when the facts reported in the press are quite simply true.”

The priest’s shocking revelations will be another blow to the Church hierarchy, already reeling from the claims that Cardinal O’Brien tried to seduce a number of trainee priests.

The 74-year-old quit as Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh after the accusations by former and serving priests emerged.

God forgot humanity?? The Catholic Church is there now for the world to see. Billions watched Pope Francis step out on the balcony. Just like when the people around Jerusalem saw Christ in person; they mocked Him and walked away. Others stayed and killed Him.
His Church doesn't fare much better these days. Most saw the new Pope, mocked him and turned the channel. Many if they could, would kill him too. Truth is truth and people do not like to hear it. They didn't 2,000 yrs ago and they don't now. You can see this in how everyone makes things up; spread rumors and falsehoods about the Church so they can feel better believing lies about it.
They are modern day Scribes and Pharisees. They came at Christ swinging the Bible at Him and now they do the same to His Church.

True, and even most Catholics today reject much of the dogma and ritual. Imagine that!!! Most Catholics risk Hell by not attending weekly Mass.

Maybe they feel like me, that whatever Jesus is and was, He was one of the greatest teachers of morals and ethics in history.

One would never know it from reading the posts here.

2000 years, and only 5% of humanity actually practices the "fullness of the faith." That's it? Not a good commentary on the RCC and its "one-true" claims.

Maybe more introspection and less defining itself based on what others are not?

So what? There wasn't 5% who stood with Jesus 2,000 yrs ago on the day He was crucified. And many of those knew the Christ personally!

My God is greater than that.

Mat 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Mat 25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

Mat 25:43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Mat 25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

Mat 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me

LOL...Said the arrogant self proclaimed scholar who can't hold an argument with intellect so launches tirades of unsourced and untrue articles. Ignores Orthodox links and what is said by his Patriarchs so he can blast a tirade of emotions not based in fact. You are a sad person Herme and I could never tolerate you. You are nothing but a big ball of estrogen with no substance.
Adhominem tirades are for the weak. It is your calling.

I base my belief on many many years of working with offenders, victims, families and institutions.To say someone or some institution has a sickness is not to trash it but to try to help it. My heartfelt belief is, yes , the Catholic Curch has this problem of abuse and cover up more than others.
Welcome back Herme - hope you are well and ready to tackle the world again!

Okay. Let's analyze what Jesus stated.
"if you choose to save your life you'll lose it, but if you lose your life for my sake, you'll find it"
**********
"if you choose to save your life you'll lose it"
- we as humans will live on this Earth. We want to live. But when we begin to learn of the spiritual things in life, we are "saving" our lives, all the while, knowing we will die.['you'll lose it"]
"but if you lose your life for my sake, you'll find it"
- Although you have "lost your life through death, believing in Jesus while you were alive, indicates that you will be saved - finding that "salvation".
But you have fallen short of this goal. You chose to only believe in a portion of what Jesus taught. Unfortunately, you will continue to believe in that portion that is incomplete.
Move past the words and understand their meanings.
"Although you have "lost your life through death, believing in Jesus while you were alive, indicates that you will be saved - finding that "salvation"

LOL!

you have fallen short of dying to yourself/sinnful nature NOW in this life since that's what it takes to become born-again in the spirit:)
