Bishops are in charge of their diocese. They weren't required to report accusations to Rome. They are required to handle issues with priests at the local level. They were required to report Crimen sollicitationis. That was the policy until 2002 when the CDF, under Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the future pope, demanded the bishops start reporting to the Vatican. No, the HIGHER UP wasn't aware of the scope until then.<quoted text>
There is no need to be nasty . But they ..the priests and their bosses are most certainly responsible fir hurting the children and the priests.
The teachers..the coaches..the ministers ..All equally guilty And I've said that Several Times
sorry you think.it's personal. It's not.
Have said MANY TIMES THE NUNS AND PRIESTS I KNEE WERE GOod people
You mean no one outside each diocese of The Church had any idea there were any priests abusing children.
I can understand THat in another institution .
But your Pope is at your head .recent on northerners and the VATICAN KNEW NOTHING???? THESE men went yo counselling. fOR A CRIME and NO ONE UP HIGH KNEW IT ..wasn't keeping it a secret then aliens Sin..Hiding things from His Holiness that could hurt the Church ???
I know it's a difficult program ..the Catholic school I went yo never addressed sex at ALL.
Who ever heard of this ..I get that ..But bishops are educated far beyond what we are. If you want to hide a din such bad this HIDE IT..away from more temptation to sin
Would it not Have made sense in a religious institution when one person came forth describing something they had no words for ...And then others ..to at least segregate these priests...Not shuffle them yo other children
It's the lack of common sense that even lay people do not understand .
I may not have been practicing but I venerated the Church.
When I first heard of this I thought it was s lie ...NOT THE PEOPLE PEOPLE I LOOKED UP TO .
And when it came out they got moved to other parishes ..My very first thought ..why did THeY not put. Them in s monastery .
You can call.me names ..You can list other criminals
You cannot face the Truth that at the very least the Church was complicit in hiding crimes..And even...according to you...hiding them from the Seatbif your Church.
Again. What bugs me US the foolisHness ..on top of letting thrombosis to hurt themselves and the children
You are more. Worried about words than those hurt.
And about Thomas More persecution and bibles..it depends on whose history you believe
I did not make any of that up
Yet you blame me .
You have no idea what you're talking about, all you do is make grand accusations based on emotions, not fact.. If you want to discuss this intelligently, get your facts straight first.
