LINCOLN, NE. Three lawsuits have been filed against a Lutheran church school for alleged sexual abuse by former officials, including a minister who served as principal. The lawsuits against St. John Lutheran Church in Seward seek millions of dollars for the alleged abuse. The Lincoln Journal Star reported in Saturday's editions that two lawsuits were filed in Lancaster County District Court on Friday by unnamed plaintiffs who alleged they were abused by longtime principal David Mannigel. Mannigel, a Lutheran minister, apparently killed himself last year.(ABC News, November 2, 2002)

...how many times have you torn Strips off people, only to let the guilt fester a couple days making you offer an apology?
I understand you're unfamiliar with a Christian trying to reconcile with another human being if he causes offense. Maybe that's why you're so happy all the time, you just don't give a crap. I'll always be there to give you an e-hug though Mike.

Nick, if you were incredulous over not readily finding the full blown assessment guidelines for Catholic seminarian candidates on the internet and expressed wonder at how the Church could not have them, but posted out of concern and a desire to make your professional recommendations, that certainly slipped past me based on the tone and what I perceived as a piling on from the last 2 days of attacks by atheists and non-Catholics. If that truly was your intention, I owe you an apology.
I do not provoke you. I do not call you names. I do not insult you or question your credentials. I do not insult your Church. If you get anything negative from me it should be taken as nothing more than a profound regret of what I perceive as your animosity towards the Catholic Church. I'm trying to help change that. This is how I would relate to you if I was standing in front of you "in the real world". My hand is outstretched. It's up to you now.
I hope you're right about him, but from his words it sounds as if he fully accepted what he read in HP, including the part about the "employment application for priests":

"I am in disbelief regarding an article concerning the tests the Catholic Church are going to use to detect potential sex offenders"

"are going to use"....I don't see any question or doubt here, but perhaps I'm also misreading it? In reading the article, I didn't see that it was anywhere stated that the Church was going to use anything the blogger put forth in 2010, it was all opinion. Again, did I misread? I sincerely hope so....but, honestly, HP? I don't know.

I hope you're not referring to me because I'm fully aware that your comments were made to June. In fact, I noted them when you made them because I couldn't quite believe what I was reading. There was no confusion on my part.

You will hug him, even though you believe he will end up in hell.

How patronizing!

Why would the Church He started NOT be a sovereign nation?? Why would this Church NOT have its own bank? Do you expect them to go to Wells Fargo for a loan??
I'm not in the mood to converse with you today, Guest. I think you're an incredibly ignorant human being. I know your bigoted mind is made up about us. That's what you're going all inn with. Nothing we say or do will ever sway your ideology. I truly hope you have a good day.

It's not MY ideology. It's from the very mouth of Jesus. But you don't trust what Jesus himself said. Indeed! You prefer to trust the words of the Pope. When Jesus told his followers to not call anyone Father ... etc.... the Pope usurped Jesus' leadership - and DEMANDED to be called Father ... so of course you will trust the Pope over Jesus.

36 Jesus said,“My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”

37 “You are a king, then!” said Pilate.

Jesus answered,“You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

I thank you for your apology to Nick. Again, he had no bad intentions when posting that post. I told Nick of your apology and he smiled and intends to except your apology. He does not deserve to be punished with the personal insults and attacks that has been going on in the past for things I have said. It is very easy to get drawn into things that are not pleasing to God. For this I am sorry. I apologize TO YOU...I will with hold negative comments about your church and work harder in control myself. Your apology was very humbling and I as well humble myself to you.

ST. PETERSBURG, FL. A recently retired Lutheran pastor may no longer minister in any capacity in the wake of allegations of inappropriate behavior with female parishioners, his bishop said. About the same time the Rev. Bruce Wilder left his 400-member congregation in March, multiple female church members came forward with accusations, said Bishop Edward R. Benoway of the Florida-Bahamas Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. An allegation concerning a girl was passed on the to St. Petersburg Police Department which is investigating, Benoway said Friday.(Naples Daily News, May 26, 2002)

Well that was a pleasant surprise at Mass this morning. The Cathedral was hosting a day retreat with Maronite, Byzantine and Roman Catholics. They were celebrating the Mass together beforehand. I wish I could have joined the retreat but I had to go.
I thought of you Rose, you would benefit by sitting with our eastern Catholic brothers and learning what "Roman" Catholic means.
That sounds excellent, Liam! It's a shame you couldn't stay for the retreat. Wish I could have gone too. We have a Byzantine Catholic Church down the street from my parish church. We always have a Penance Service during Advent and Lent and several additional priests (about 7 or so) from neighboring parishes come in to hear confessions because there are so many people. A year or two ago one of the Byzantine priests came and I went to him. The Eastern Rites are all very much the same, so it was a bit different than what we Latins are used to.

If you search, you can find many cases of molestations in Protestant churches.

There is no need to point fingers, as there ought to be enough guilt for all to share.

The subject of molestation ought to be perceived as a cover-up all over the world, in churches, mosques, synagogues, Buddist temples, other organizations and homes.
I don't find it fair to target one organization and leave all the others alone.
And I suggest that if you were Catholic and not Protestant, you would be defending the Catholic church.

I frequent other forums and, trust me, I do not leave 'other' organizations alone.

But, the title of THIS forum is that the Catholic Church is the "true" church.

By their abuses and world-wide cover-up one would have know that this statement is impossible.

Maybe my hug will soften him up a bit and cause him reconsider his views. The person who reconciles himself to God with his last dying breath is just as likely to avoid hell as someone who spends their entire life a faithful Christian.
