The whole pedophile thing is really what makes us despise the RRC.
The "whole pedophile thing" should make one "despise" pedophiles. The reality of priest pedophiles makes me despise those priests who are pedophiles. It makes no sense to despise a whole church or all priests because there are those who do wrong.

Happy holidays!

There are so many child molesters in the high ranking positions.

I would imagine there are those that are though "so many" is a stretch unless you have sources of proof not known to me. What the "so many" seems to fit are those in "high ranking positions" who knowingly covered up or protected child molesters in their midsts. This is a grave sin on them but still not a reason to hate a whole church.

I may not agree with all the church teaches, but I've never thought the sexual sins were the fault of the religion (or any religion). It's solely the fault of the perpetrators.

It is as wrong as blaming all doctors because of the ones who abuse or all teachers or lawyers etc. The child molestor is found in all walks of life. They are a reality that all adults who wish to protect children must be aware of.

We had two priests in our local parish St. Mary's that we arrested and convicted in a five year period. Cardinal Law was going to be charged with dozens of pedophile related charges but just days before the arrest he was given Vatican citizenship by the pope. Law now lives there under the RRC's protection. Father Gagan and Father James Porter molested over 200 kids by their own admission. That's a few out of dozens that we have seen year after year. All protected and covered up by the RRC. So no I am not upset I missed out I just find it disgusting that these losers cover it up and the arrogance of it all. I'll leave the blind faith and trust in these disgusting people to you. How anyone can listen to these degenerates is disgusting.

"All Catholics must..." is a farce. The pope says "All Catholics must avoid artificial birth control," but most ignore the pope. The church says, "All Catholics must oppose abortion," but their notable Catholic politicians support it and commune. The pope says, "All Catholics must oppose homosexuality," but their seminaries, but their own admission are havens for gays and it is now affecting the priesthood. The pope's solution -- grandfather the current gays but not enroll anymore. Yeah, right! The church says divorce is not allowed, but that doesn't hold true for the famous and wealthy like the Kennedys. The clay feet of the leadership of RCC are as obvious as the clay feet of the leadership of TEC.

Great post!!!! Until Pelosi, Biden et al are excommunicated the RCC is just paying lip service to their own directives.

So sorry that you are hurt. those you speak of will have to answer to the big guy when there time comes, you must know of this. Just because I'm a practicing catholic doesn't mean I go around with eyes wide shut. Being active in my church and diocese I do pay attention to what goes on behind the scenes. I pray that the ugly days are behind us. This disgusting stuff happens in other religions and churches as well as ours. Please place the past back into God's hands. The past is just that, the past and we should learn from the past.
Yes it's easy for me to state this stuff because it didn't happen to me. I just had to put up in my early years running away from all the boys in neighborhood. Won't tell you if they caught me. I was a fast runner in those days. Anyway, I hope you can change your attitude towards our religion as it's the only one that can trace roots back to aposiles. those you spoke of are now residing at the Vatican? Probably in the jail there. They probably wish they had stayed in the US, our jails must be better.
Somewhere in bible there's a statement about our priests: "do as they say, not as they do". had something to do with them (priests) being humans.
Mr. Roberts you have to admit your name is suggestive of illicit stuff. Just an odd name, wasn't there a news caster with the same name some yrs. ago or was it an evangelist?
Please accept my appology for being rude to you. Will place you in my prayers for strength to carry on.
Keep the faith babe!

Such cold people here. One tries to sooth the savage beast with kind words and consultation and what do you get in return, Crap, hate. no wonder our society is in such turmoil. The media has sanitized everything to make things look normal so not to offend anyone. How can this be? I find it quite offensive...
Our elected officials can't even get along. OUr world is in a heap of trouble folks. I pray everyone here sees the light before it's to late.
