<quoted text> Thanks Dust Storm. This must be the part of the Orthodox Church that you are always claiming wants to "reunite" with the Catholic Church. They know where the real action is.
All satire aside, I guess I am now expected to blame the media, call you a bigot and antiOrthodox, accuse you of slander, claim you owe me an apology, say these things, like the inquisition did not happen,and post an antiCatholic article to give tit for tat.
Not going to do this. I say,if true, deal with these poison carriers and cast whatever hierarchy allowed this happened into the Aegean Sea.
He didn't slander or falsely accuse you so there's no need for him to apologize. You, however, are a slanderer and false accuser and do, in fact, owe apologies which your pride refuses to allow. You are, what's the word ....substandard. Every time you open your mouth, you prove me right. Oh, and Thank You! What a waste of my time on....nothing.....

Your impression is just your opinion.
Facts 40 years ago there were 58,000 roman catholic priests in america. Today there are 38,000 average age 61. Most new priests in america are imported from Italy or South america.
Fact 40 years ago 180,000 nuns in america. Today 57,500, average age 70.
If the holiest of catholics aren't answering the calling anymore then doesn't that clearly show even the most devout catholics are becoming liberal in their beliefs?
At the going rate the nuns will just about be all gone in 15 years other than a few newbies.
The same number of priests in the world 420,000 as there was 30 years ago. No growth there. The only reason catholic numbers are growing is because of the boom in Africa and South America as poor uneducated people grasp at it, while in the western world practicing catholics deminish every year.
Soon catholicism will be more about people from the east than those from the west. Future Cardinals and bishops will bring their own African/Asian traditions changing the churches landscape of believers.
If your church doesn't like Father Cozzens why is he still a practicing roman catholic priest?
If your church doesn't like nuns like Sister Maureen Fiedler than why doesn't your church do something about it?
You're a phony who is standing on the backs of victims to further your anti-Catholic agenda. Here's a ladder. After you climb down you can use it to bring your supporters down, too.

You're users and opportunists.

My purpose is not to disparage the Orthodox church, but it isnt hard to find abuse of many kinds in religious or secular organizations. It is not hard to find cruelty and violent acts either. All religions have their share of blood on their hands. If one has an argument of theology that is another matter, This does not mean corruption and abuse shoudl not be confronted or defended. However to focus on one Church and make it the singular issue while not addressing your own is not an advocate for children.
"The church’s stance has drawn unfortunate comparisons with the Vatican’s handling of its own sex-abuse scandals. Mirko Djordjevic, a sociologist in Belgrade, says the Orthodox leadership has long thought of itself as untouchable even as rampant evidence of wrongdoing came to light.

June, I posted the following last night in response to this. Unfortunately, "someone" in his extreme paranoia and ignorance chose to lie about me again. He really has a bad problem...in his mind it's always all about him, him, him, glorious, wonderful him! lol...
Anyway, I'm sure you'll have a snappy comeback for me, have at it, but I did want to show that what you posted is considered highly questionable at the very least as is stated in the following paragraph (seems some people can't read either, lol):
In 1994 John Boswell published a book - Same Sex Unions in Pre-Modern Europe (New York: Villard, 1994) which claimed, essentially, that the adelphopoiia rite known to have been used in Orthodox and Greek rite Catholic Churches constituted, in usage at least, a form of ecclesiastical blessing for homosexual unions. To say the least this claim has been highly contested. Boswell was not able to show that any high church body gave approval to such a use of the rite, but was able to show, as most critics allow, that the rite was both fairly widespread [he had about 70 manuscripts], and that it probably was used by some same-sex couples to give some outward sign to their relationship. There are contrary indications about the entire ceremony,

I think Regina is correct. I owe her an apology. In fact a written apology is not sufficient. Therefore I recorded my apology on cam.It is available below"

Tony Tony Tony....we have more in common than I though. It is a great day for me today thanks to Dust Storm opening my eyes to the corruption in the orthodox church also. Our two church have more in common than I once thought....

Its unfortunate that you are not sharp enough to catch that my comment about an apology had nothing to do with asking for one but had to do with your incessant asking for apologies.

I had thought the same thing, that it most definitely is not "religion aside". Attacking religion is their main purpose, specifically Catholicism. To pretend to fail to see what "Miguelito" is too obvious.

Don't worry about it. Jesus said that there would be many FALSE Christs.
No where on earth did a supposed savior write in his own name.

Those such as you believe you can speak as though YOU are a savior of all humans.

You are a ridiculous preacher of nonsense from the lie-filled anti-Semitic KJV!

Never, ever said that. Just asking you to prove you're not a phony advocacy pimp by supporting your accusation that "most priests knew who the abusers were...."
Bad news for you here Mike;
"The Ramsey County attorneys office announced Wednesday that “we cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt” that anyone in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis violated the law in the church’s handling of allegations against a fired St. Paul clergy member who is now in prison for sexually abusing two boys."
http://m.startribune.com
Seen the similar headlines at www.twincities.com . I was a bit surprised. Good for the MN media to report this. I'm waiting to see if it makes tonights tv headlines. It wasn't long ago that they waited outside Mass for us to get a reaction. They completely blew these stories up. People like Michael loved it! I knew they handled the Wehmeyer case correctly because I knew some of the parishioners at Blessed Sacrament. The Archdiocese did the right thing. I'm proud of the Church.
Now if only school districts like in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada could learn from us. They are way behind!

Let's face the facts. Both Catholics and Protestants believe that "Jesus" is on their sides of the ongoing struggle for supremacy.
