why would anyone willingly want to be a Roman/world dominated "Catholic" when Christ set us free to be His very own catholic/Church???

Thanks for reading my posts. Too bad you have no comprehension and obsessive compulsive disorder. Your continual ranting with nothing but bias shows you don't care about children and you are not worth the time as you are contributor to the problem. People of integrity and are not delusional like you have acknowledged the broader picture. You on the other hand choose to live in darkness fomenting hate toward one Church because you care so much about children everywhere. Get some help Mikey.
Thanks for reading my posts.
If church leaders lived the moral life they preach, there would be no stories for the media to report.
Most of the victims I support are adults who have lived a life of horror. You are just embarrassed at the mess your church leaders have created, and you would rather lash out at others instead of the ones who deliberately deceived you and all the faithful.
How sick is that?

The Church of Scientology in France is fined €600,000 and several of its leaders are fined and sentenced to jail for defrauding new recruits out of their savings.[74][75][76] The state fails to disband the church due to legal changes occurring over the same time period.

What I see happening is a lashing out in rage as these folks are stumped time after time with no answer to our explanations. They have no answer when it's proven the early Church was Catholic, they have no answer when asked to produce protestant theology before the 16th century. They have no answer to the 40,000+ sects all competing with each other for membership, all claiming to be bible alone yet have contradictory theology.
If I was protestant Christian (which includes Seraphima of course) and was faced with the obvious fracturing of protestantism I'd be scared too. Would I go insane over the abuses by a very small percent of perverts as a last result when all of my arguments fell flat? I would hope not, but that seems to be what's happened here. They know it, we know it, I believe Jesus knows it. When they all abuse us and the Church, the best thing to do is keep your eyes on Jesus.

BTW: You haven't proven that the early church was Catholic..just gave your opinion.
Protestant theology is the theme of the New Testament...preached by the Apostles.

I have given you countless examples of the writings of the early Church showing them to be Catholic. All you have ever done to cite your opinion as to scripture passages that you imagine support your particular protestant tradition. That's what what all the other competing protestant sects do to support their own contradictory traditions as well. Sorry.

Quit your arguing, "I'm right! ". "No your not, I am"... your both going to heaven according to both of you, the only concern is you will still be arguing once you get there, and I am sitting on the sidelines watching this sideshow.

I agree that there are many many catholic priests who have nothing to do with molesting boys and are getting a bad reputation. But what I don't understand is and have even asked my family, how do you continue to support the catholic church financially? You don't think the money that catholics give around the country ever Sunday goes to pay off lawsuits? Really??

......... You and the other catholics keep referring to protestants as Bible Only, yet most of Your comments are from the bible. When was the last time you quoted catholic canon laws or papal documents on here? You can ring off the 10 commandments from the bible bing!, bing!, bing!, but you don't know, or can't quote your own church canon laws..........that makes you bible only too.

YOU mock me and a man that DEFENDS VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE CAUSED IN YOUR CHURCH BY YOUR PRIEST.I agree with Miguel 100%. You accusing Michael of being a sex offender says a lot about YOU and no one else. And your church DOES WATER DOWN the Eucharist by allowing a non priest to give it and you also rarely get the wine.

Din Timelines
1096
may 00 - Before embarking on the First Crusade Count Emich von Leiningen and his army swept through their own German homeland, murdering thousands of Jews, whom they had declared "murderers of Christ." When Emich arrived in the town of Worms, the town's Roman Catholic Bishop tried to protect the Jewish population, but the Crusaders overran his palace and slaughtered some 500 people who had taken shelter there. Another 300 were killed over the next two days. The graves of the massacre victims can still be seen at the Jewish Cemetery at Worms.
1190
mar 16 - The Crusades began the massacre of Jews in York, England.The Jewish population of York fled to Clifford's Tower overlooking the rivers Ouse and Foss during an anti-Jewish riot. A crazed friar set fire to the tower and rather than be captured, the inhabitants committed mass suicide.
mar 17 - Crusades complete massacre of Jews of York England.
mar 18 - Crusaders kill 57 Jews in Bury St Edmonds England.
205
jul 15 - Pope Innocent III states Jews are doomed to perpetual servitude & subjugation due to crucifixion of Jesus.
1348x –
Accused of being a cause of the plague, the Jews in France were dragged from their houses and burned.Pogroms occurred throughout Europe. When the plague subsided, few Jews were left in Germany ? or the Low Countries.
......... The stories of Jesus and Martin Luther are very similar.

Jesus was a devout Jew. Pissed off his own religious leaders quit his faith and started a new belief.

Martin Luther a devout catholic, Pissed off the church leaders quit his faith and started a new belief.

Martin Luther is just the newest link from the original Jesus story. I am sure in the future the chain will continue to grow, someone else will piss off their church leaders again continue on with new beliefs maybe in a different direction. Sounds exciting!!

.......It is the evolution from the very beginning. Pagan gods, to one god Jew, to trinity catholic, to Protestant, to whatever comes next.????

You logic goes something like this...Michael persistently calls attention to children being molested therefore he has an overwhelming attraction to and desire to molest children. Applying this same logic to Elie Wiesel whose family was killed by Nazi's in the Holocaust and who spent a life time talking about the horror's of the Holocaust gets off on killing Jews/

..... According to the court documents from Chicago, most of the non molesting priests were well aware of the ones who were molesting. Bishop
s informed the non molesting priests to keep an eye on the ,molesting ones over 25 years!. It was stated in the 6000 pages of church secret documents reported in court. Why would a non molesting priest not do the right thing and question his bishop that what they were doing was morally wrong? Why would the knowing non molesting priests want to remain priests, if what they were doing was morally wrong and sinful.
Last week for the first time in 25 years hundreds of victims FINALLY for their justice and the church got another black eye.

Almost all of the victims today getting justice are adults. Nothing to do today with children.

Catholics are partially responsible for all what has happened. They have paid the salaries/benefits for those involved including the coverup bishops, and they continue to pay for them today.

My priest has never molested anyone, nor do I know of any priest in my lifetime molesting anyone. The Eucharist is Christ, can't water that down one bit. You are childish and have a piggy mouth. Go grow up.. A swearing priest is a lot nicer than you.

I have nothing to be ashamed of. I have done no wrong. Catholics continually make up excuses and blame others to protect those deserve the blame.
How is this most serious problem worldwide within the church ever going to be solved if catholics keep blaming others for the sins of their own leaders? Why is this problem prevalent in almost all 195 dioceses in america and every country where catholic clergy are located?
Catholics themselves are now showing themselves as being part of the problem. Very troubling!
