Atually, what's happened is that we've strengthened our vigilance to ensure the safty and well-being of the children in care of any Church activities.
Pre-screeing, etc. is very rigorous.
Doing something, admittedly, isn't as glamorous or dramatic as screeching on a message board.
If it was one of your kids that was sexually molested by an older man, you would want IMMEDIATE ACCOUNTABILITY. That never happened in your church, the victims were always played to have been lying or farbricating a story against a priest. After all who would believe a 14 year old boy over the beloved parish priest.

Its obvious we were wrong!

Better late then never! YA!

Michael says....If God has always existed (infinite), and God has a purpose, what was his purpose for all time, before mankind who only recently arrived in the past 1 million or so years?
What God would create billions of imperfect beings, only to have them relegated to a place of fire/suffering for all eternity because they were imperfect beings?
If there is a God he could have just created 100,000 beings or what number God wanted to who automatically went to heaven whenever he wanted them, instead of this long drawn out affair of Adam/Eve, Jesus, etc, living/dieing/needless suffering, people born with deformaties, murders, rapes, suicides, disease and famine......and the greatest of all FEAR!
Read the OT, God was an all punishing God. Not the God I would worship. In the NT somehow God EVOLVED or morphed into an all LOVING GOD.
UNBELIEVABLE!
God does not punish..He exercises Divine Judgment...He does not change...never has...never will...

Now, they still have instructions from the hierarchy on how to handle things.
Again, your logic is failing. If it was being covered up, who among the "devout catholics" would have known about it?
Same fallacy on display.
I asked Liam ..ask you ..is,there now that it's,known ...any prayer from pulpit or congregation ..for the victims ..I'm sure there is,fir the Church ..her reputation...the damage caused to the,Faith ...But is,THere prayer specifically for the victims .

Even at Mass when they say pray for the departed SOULs .the sick.the ,Church ...the social safety net ..the Bishop ...etc .

If not ..maybe during bible study ..

Just an idea,...for the congregation ...the priests ..who had formerly
Been ignorant of the truth..

I know,you are,part of your Church by what you've said .
Again ..if not done now, and I don't know,if it is,...why not suggest it ???

Christ started His Church with thieves, prostitutes and murderers. What's your point? Are you saying the Catholic Church couldn't be the true one because it has sinners??
Maybe you should read your Bible again. Use a pink highlighter so it won't be confused with the yellow.

----------
Paul was a murderer until he met Jesus. He named a number of sinful behaviors, then said, "and such WERE some of you, but you are washed".

Jesus' blood STILL washes the sinner clean.

How many times in america, how many times around the world do you think this scenario happened.

A priest gets caught buggering a child. Bishop covers up the abuse and the parish is informed their beloved priest is getting moved to a far way parish, where his services are needed. The unknowing women in the parish throw a "going away party" for the molesting priest giving him gifts and well wishes. As this offending priest comes to the new parish, another party. A welcoming party! with more gifts/cakes/pies.

A lot of parties given to men who deserved hard jail time not their favorite cakes and expensive gifts.

The Bible didn't appear out of nowhere. It's men that put it together.
The big news about the Bible it was not written in English and many books were left out. Many words have different meaning in different languages, have different meanings throughout centuries and the words even have different meanings in the same language.
You can take any quote in the Bible and ten people will take it and explain it in different ways.
No wonder people's minds get so mixed up and cause so much trouble.

Give us ONE quote with ten different 'ways'. We are waiting...

Based on belief you say! Yes! every religion is based on belief. Every religion believes they are right. To date not one religion has the smoking gun of truth, for if they did we we would all be one BELIEF.
Belief can never be a FACT or absolute truth, because to be a fact or truth it can't just be a belief.

The last 3 years first time in roman catholic church history priests are forming UNIONS (associations) their main focus is upholding vatican II policies which the hirearchy is trying to undo.

The priests also want a voice in the church to be able to speak up to their bishops when issues arise, and believe priests/laity should be able to pick their bishop.

The first association of priests was formed in Ireland in 2010. Now there are several growing around the world including the AUSCP in the USA that has now over 1,000 roman catholic priests who have joined.

These priests also support the nuns in america under scruitany by the vatican.

Discontent within the ranks, or just a new vision and ways of doing business in the church?

Self.

According to many NDEs, we don't stand in judgment before "God".

You have drawn a false conclusion.

"Did you experience a review of past events in your life? Yes I've explained this. I saw everything I had ever done, every thing I'd ever done, every place I'd ever been. I understood it all, and felt peace with the choices I'd made and the life I'd lived thus far. I now believe that this is the only judgment we face at the end of our lives and that if we like what we see...we move on to the other side peacefully. "
http://www.nderf.org/NDERF/NDE_Experiences/cy...

"Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes

That we are the architects of our own destiny. That nobody is more to blame than ourselves for our actions during this life. At the end of our road and after the judgment we have a final decision to make: Are you going to return or go? That the someone or some thing that judges you is perhaps yourself. That from now on you can create your life with full consciousness of your acts and the transcendence of them. "
http://www.nderf.org/NDERF/NDE_Experiences/eu...

"Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you? Nothing in my life has had the significance of the NDE and some meditation experiences that happened later. no doubt, no fear of death and a total comprehension of non-judgment. No one creates their realities life is conditioned by hereditary and socialized contingencies and if you are born in the first world then your lottery tickets certainly came up. The relative world demands a certain amount of legal accountability and responsibility and we need suitable constraints however the deep ocean of the Absolute is absolutely forgiving and absolutely non-judgmental. Remove judgment and reduce inner turmoil resulting in peace and equanimity."
