Brothers and sisters, let us fight against our enemies for the sake of our faith and the Roman Catholic Church as a whole. To those who are harming and exploiting our Church as well as our Holy Father, we will pray that we shall overcome!

REAL Catholics are NOT your brothers and sisters. They have a lot more sense than you and don't try to cover up something that must be brought out in the open in order to be resolved! Stop your lies and pretenses!!!

Those whose faith are not strong enough and are easily discouraged by a little failure of the Church because of the pedophile issue done by the small percentage of the priests are not real believers of the true Church that is the Roman Catholic Church. There should be forgiveness as God has forgiven sinners and punishment where punishment is due.

We are proud to belong to the Roman Catholic Church!

So, it's ok that INNOCENT children have been molested and abused? Nice, charitable Catholic YOU are! What if one of your children... oh, that's right, you DON'T HAVE ANY, that's why you're so callous and heartless!

LIAR! You did no such thing! You just went around with a smug attitude telling everyone that the boys "enjoyed" being molested and that they got amply paid for their trouble! You have no heart, no feelings for other people, least of all for children!

Tsk, tsk, tsk, another name another title...

But this is a true story from a disclosure of a good friend of mine who was a sacristan when he was young. There were also phedophile priests at his time but they were not forced to do so. According to him, those willing sex abused victims were having good times with their priests repeatedly and those who were not willing were not treated like a "teacher's pet". He saw what was happening but he didn't allow himself to be abused.

How about that???

Nice little fairy tale! Are you insinuating that thousands of victims "enjoyed" themselves? You are a vile, twisted creature! You have made a pact with the devil and will get your just reward, together with all those who molested and those who enabled them (all the way up the Church hierachy)!

In this generation, the children are terrible if compared before. I heard that they are having sex already in early age.

And so you're saying that they DESERVE to be raped and molested? What about the priests who are SUPPOSED to be chaste? Wouldn't it be the priests' work to help those children behave better, instead of corrupting them further? LOGIC is NOT your strong suit and it shows continuously in your senseless babbling!
