Haven't seem any Hindus or Buddhists killing people for their religions though.
Why are Buddhists and Hindus killing each other in Sri Lanka which is known as the home of the suicide bomber?

Best answer

My one word answer: Religion. The struggle is political on the surface, but the division underneath all that is religious.

Maybe the abused should get their say and a proper investigation done, you don't have a problem with that, do you?
My guess is that at least some Catholics were not molested but took advantage of the situation to reap payouts from the church.

One lawyer was even disbarred for being caught in such a deception.

Wherever there is money to be had, crime is sure to enter.

Indeed! It was and is religion's habit to divide people into groups to in turn fight and kill each other.

<quoted text>they condemned gay priests/people since it's creation, and now Francis is singing a different tune, I just read an article he washed the feet of two young women on Thursday a ritual that was for men only, since he is the vicar of Christ, he can do this, fore what ever he does is done with the blessing of jesus/god, that's unheard of, yet he did it, he is a smart man, he realizes the churches peril, your running out of priests, so he is slowly getting the church to accept bringing gay priests into the church, then it will be women priests, if you expect the church to survive.
People can see that a god was never guiding the words of anybody in religion ... yet they continue to play the games.

<quoted text>You said doctrine can't be changed but it can and has happened many times in the RCC.
Pope Benedict: In 1981, he settled in Rome when he became Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, one of the most important dicasteries of the Roman Curia.
During that time he helped shape the new view of gays and lesbians by the Catholic Faith. Under John Paul II he helped change the idea of homosexuality from an inherent sin to the ACT being sinful not the person or their state of being.
My partner was catholic and when he died he wanted to be cremated. His family were fairly traditional and some worried that destroying his body by fire would deny him resurrection in the Rapture. They were afraid the church would not allow him to be interred in holy ground. They were not aware that the Church had changed it's stance on cremation. It's amazing to me that it was his desire to be cremated that they feared the church would object to and not the fact that he was gay and my husband (we never married in any open ceremony. We exchanged vows on evening before God).
I am also allowed to be interred next to him even though I am not Catholic.(One of my sisters had converted so that was my way in).
Just wanted to share part of my experience with the RCC and their rules.
None of that is doctrine. Doctrine cannot be changed.

You're not the only one to make that mistake. Every non-Catholic on this forum has done the same and even after they're corrected they come back a few days later and do it all over again. Unfortunately, a lot of Catholics don't know their faith either and are responsible for spreading misinformation, not to mention causing themselves and their families unnecessary angst.

You bible thumpers will not allow the thought to enter your psyches that according to the theology the god created good AND evil.

It's plain that the god commanded you to kill, yet you insist that god loves everybody.

Such idiocy doesn't have to be forever ... but if you insist on hanging onto that bible ... you will play the idiot game until you die.

The very idea that a Jew would come to earth to tell Christians that if they don't follow him they will spend eternity in hell is absolute ludicrous theology. And yet that one word SALVATION drive Christians into right-fighting frenzies.

"I WANT TO BE WITH THOSE WHO ARE SAVED!!!"

Pathetic!
