The definition of "addressing" which means "speaking to" does not limit "speaking to" only to angels. So, every time I speak to my dog, I am following your Catholic teaching!!!!!

It is. Protestant preacher abuse could be, probably is, a lot higher. Of course, the only time I ever mention abuse in a religious setting is when your husband or other fundies (and the occasional Catholic-hating Orthodox) are throwing priest abuse in our faces. But you (and they) can go on pretending it doesn't exist in your communities.
Hey Tony...the only problem I have with you all right now is the bragging done about the Catholic church being the TRUE CHURCH..which ALL Orthodox will disagree.So that word Orthodox should be plural..lol

You DO believe that Jesus was a real man connected to the Essenes ... don't you?
Yes, I do. Sources(contemporary) other than church writings have indicated that he actually existed...so I must give credence to that end. I also believe that he was a "Nazar"...(radical).
See, that is what "education" and research can do for you June. You prefer to remain completely ignorant, so one can not have any rational discussion with you regarding anything that would require research or knowledge...you have neglected both.

Dust Storm says.......Catholic priests abuse at a rate far lower than that of other Missing and Exploited Children.
Michael says.......We don't know how many thousands of priests/bishops molested our children. They kept it all a secret, from the very followers who trusted them to always do the right thing.
Look at the """BIG" "" PICTURE!
http://www.awrsipe.com/patrick_wall/executive...
An organization that claims to be the advocates of MORALITY and JUSTICE, and yet the thousands of clergy who did not molest, looked the other way as more of our innocent children became prey to the ones who did molest.
Church leaders never dialed 9-1-1, it was always the victims and their families.
unbelievable!
Shame on them!
More fodder and conjecture. Show the facts not your word games. Show the independent studies. Quote any credible news organization who says its way worse in the Catholic Church. You can't Tommy Boy. No real Christian would listen to your garbage let alone anyone with intelligence. Long live your obsession. You need a new hobby and a life.

You can give credence to any religious theory that pleases you, but your religious theories are still theories as are all religious theories.

Your insults are duly noted.

I don't believe that Jesus existed, but if I believed he had existed, I would believe he was a peace-promoting rabbi, faithful to Judaism.

Of course the whole of religion is fraught with inconsistencies and down-right lies.

"If anyone believes that priests offend at a higher rate than teachers or non-celibate clergy, then they should produce the evidence on which they are basing that conclusion. I know of none. Saying 'everybody knows' does not constitute scientific methodology."
Dr. Philip Jenkins, Pennsylvania State University.
2THE GRAND CONSPIRACY THAT WASN'T
FACT: You would never know it from the media's lurid coverage, but the vast bulk of reported cases of abuse stem only from a historical anomaly, as most allegations occurred during only a small sliver of time during the Sexual Revolution from the 1960s to the early 1980s. And despite media suggestions of dark conspiracies and cover-ups, the Church like every other institution at the time simply followed the then-prevailing view of experts in the field that offenders could be successfully rehabilitated and sent accused priests off for treatment, rather than reporting them to police, which resulted in a temporary spike in recidivism.

Catholic Church Abuse Graph 1970-2009
From the 1950s through the 1970s, the Catholic Church, following the then-prevailing societal practice, sent suspected abusers to psychologists rather than calling the police.
In this respect, the Church was far from alone.
When the Church was sending accused priests to psychological treatment, "the criminal justice system was doing the very same thing with convicted offenders sending them to treatment instead of prison."
"From the 1950's to the 1980's, these treatment-based interventions for sexual criminals were not only enormously prevalent in the United States, but surveys of ordinary citizens showed that they were enormously popular
"[T]he science of human sexuality and sexual offending is extraordinarily young. Virtually all of the information we utilize today regarding the treatment and supervision of sexual offenders has been discovered since 1985."
Dr. Monica Applewhite, Ph.D.
Yet in almost every media account, the media has failed to provide this important historical context that the Church was following the then-reigning advice of experts in the field to send accused priests to treatment.
"No one would hold a brain surgeon to today's standard of care for professional decisions he made in 1970. Yet the decisions made in 1970 by Catholic bishops, who routinely consulted with mental health professionals about sick priests, are being judged by today's standards. Today, the confidence of the mental health community about the likelihood of curing sexual disorders is far less than it was in 1970."
L. Martin Nussbaum, "Changing the Rules" (America magazine, 2006)
Yet these 149 men represent only one-tenth of one percent of all priests who served in the Catholic Church in the United States between 1950 and 2002. Most accused priests (56%) have been the subject of only one allegation.
3THE REAL NEWS: CURRENT ACCUSATIONS AGAINST CATHOLIC PRIESTS ARE EXTREMELY RARE
What I personally do not understand ..And let me say growing up I had wonderful nuns and priests.

And abuse is all over.

But why in the name of all that is holy dud they NOT JUST SEND TBEM TO MONASTERIES..get them counselling ..great ...But the CC is perhaps the only organization that could have found PL a car,for them to repent ..do service...AND NOT HURT ANOTHER CHILD.

WHY move then to parishes. With kids??

That is what I do not understand.

Priests have a special relationship.with parishioners. Why give them another bite of the Apple so to speak..when it's CHIKDRENS LIVES ST STAKE..

If they had..the world would never have heard a thing..children would be safer and the CC REPRESENTING OUR LORD would not get spit on ..

It's not only about the child sex-abuse ... it's about the centuries of cover-ups by men who were entrusted to take care of children and failed to perform their duties.

You seem to sweep that issue under the carpet with all the other atrocities performed by those men in a god's name.

If you really worshipped a god, you would condemn the men who blasphemed the god's name ... but instead you defend them.

No biggie. And you won't see any triumphalism coming from me as far as the Orthodox are concerned. Protestantism is another story.

SIMPLE AS THAT!
Your church is an infestation of sin, and should NOT be the teacher of anyone or anything in this society.
I am sure you will push the buttons to throw your church into even more PUBLIC scrutiny as I speak...you just don't even know when to shut up!

If a deity exists it needs to carry all the shame for creating such a horrible mess that it knew beforehand would occur.

And I have no remorse for having such an opinion.
