what's crazy is making a saint of a pedophile protector

but then, I guess that would mean tearing the whole place down and selling off all the parts to compensate the victims

He was more of a figurehead in his last years as Pope then a decision maker in the Catholic Church.
I didn't molest children, nor do I protect child molestors

so direct your disgust at the catholic church and it's heirarchy, that;s what they do and have for decades

You choose to molest the reputation of innocent men and women in the Universal Church by words. There is little difference in many ways. It is a debased mind which purposefully and willfully attempts to ruin the reputation of an entire Church for the actions of a miniscule number of its members who have succumbed to Lucifer.

You have some kind of spiritual turmoil in progress. There is a root cause to your actions. You know what it is. Why don't you share it with us? Better yet...admit it to yourself and seek the Love of Christ.

Mercy flows from Christ through the sacraments of the Church of Rome. You are welcome to look into it. Blessings to you.

"willfully attempts to ruin the reputation of an entire Church" LOL.
The church has destroyed its own reputation,if it ever had one to ruin.
Only a catholic sycophant would brush over the crimes of the filthy bastards in the ranks of the RCC.

If Peter is in Heaven, then by definition he is "St. Peter"...a Saint. You are supposed to understand the Bible...not worship it. You are supposed to use it as a means of knowing the mind of God...not turning off your own mind. It is not a Sin to THINK and derive Truth from the Bible. The Church promulgated the Holy Bible for liturgical purposes. I really don't follow you.

He should have resigned due to his illness. He should have been made to. Anyone else in another position of high office would have. Look at Reagan's senility --- he should have been ousted.

It's much more than a "miniscule number" but I do agree it's not the fault of the religion, but of the guilt parties themselves. Still, John Paul knew a lot and covered it up, there's plenty of people who knew that - he should not be canonized, or has he been already?

And his BLOOD for a relic? How gruesome is your religion going to get?? Next it will be shrunken heads.

Maybe they should use his blood to extracting DNA from it and clone John Paul, Then we can put him on trial for helping to cover up the biggest paedophile scandal in history.

And just as importantly, is that your picture?:D
No, I didn't care for Reagan and I didn't like his acting either.

And no, that's not my photo (how I wish it were!) I'm an old woman of 66 (almost). Not in perfect health, but things could be a lot worse. I'm a happy old gal though. I have an angel of a husband and a son I love bigger than the whole cosmos.

I hope you're a happy person too :) I love life, and if Nature is God (in a way), then I love Him, too. I love His Creation, which I believe He accomplished through evolution. See ya later :)

Really, so how long did it take Jesus to evolve off the Cross and rise up out of that grave? How long did it take His miracles to evolve? Did it take 50 millions years for Him to walk across the water?

BS, God said let there be light and there WAS light, there was not one second in delay as there wasn't a second in delay for anything He spoke into existence.

Oh, LOL, I should have known - you're one of those ZAP: There's Adam. Then ZAP: There's Eve. Enter talking serpent. Talk to your priest about Theistic Evolution.

I didn't know you were THAT dumb and antiquated.

News flash: The world really IS flat! And how about we condemn Gallileo again?

I've seen some stupid posters but you take the cake. I bet you even hate the word "science".

He also supports covering up the molestation of children. Hardly a reliable source. You probably agree with him.

The main word here is IF....so how do you know he is in heaven to even call him that? Are you assuming? You could be wrong. No one knows this but GOD.
