The Catholic Church's record of aggressive and proactive protective measures is unparalleled in any organization today. Since the beginning of the abuse crisis, the Catholic Church:
has instituted a "zero tolerance" policy in which any credibly accused priest is immediately removed from ministry. Law enforcement is also notified;
has trained over 5 million children in giving them skills to protect them from abuse;
has trained over 2 million adults, including 99 percent of all priests, in recognizing signs of abuse;
has conducted over 2 million background checks, including those in the intensified screening process for aspiring seminarians and priests;
has installed "Victim Assistance Coordinators" in every diocese, "assuring victims that they will be heard";
has conducted annual audits of all dioceses to monitor compliance with the groundbreaking 2002 Charter for Protection of Children and Young People;
has instituted in all dioceses abuse review boards – often composed of child welfare experts, child psychologists, and abuse experts – to examine claims of abuse against priests.
No other organization even comes close to implementing the measures the Catholic Church has taken to protect children in its care. In this regard, the Catholic Church in the 21st century is the model for other institutions to follow in the safeguarding of youth.

Also, why has the Southern Baptist Convention faught so hard to not keep records of accused offenders in their ranks? Why have other protestant denominations refused to have investigations into their groups? My guess is that they'd rather keep the spotlight on the Catholic Church.

<quoted text>In light of your affirmation that Jesus paid for all of your sins at Calvery, and with the hope that you understand that that payment is accredited to ones account the moment they accept by faith the Saviour, how can you possibly believe in purgatory?

4GVN good friend

When one accepts Christ as Saviour, does that automatically make null and void the effects of sin in this life, or the next?

Yes the wages of sin is death, but the effects of sin in our life still exists. And our souls become soiled with sin. Some may be instantly cured of say drug addiction, or adultery, or stealing, but in general the fight of the flesh and spirit is one until the day he dies. And the stains of guilt are deep.

So for instance, an alcoholic accepts Christ as Saviour, stops drinking, and then drinks again....(A sinner accepts Christ, but falls back into the ways of the natural man, but still accepts Christ as Saviour.)

This means that person is unclean, even though saved. And in Revelation 21:27, nothing unclean will enter heaven.

So on earth we are given the process of sanctification, being made cleaned. People achieve varying degrees of sanctification in this life. If that process has not removed entirely our uncleaness, how can one enter heaven?(In light of Rev 21:27)?

Only one way, and God puts us through a Final Process, of Purgatory, or trial by fire(the Holy Spirit), after we are dead.

As Christian, I see it more a joyful thing that God has provided us just such a hopeful process. For one's Final Destination is assurred, though it is more painful in the spirit after one has died....

You keep up your "one man band crusade" that gives bogus numbers of PRACTICING baptized catholics, you base your one true church on stories written by men that you haven't got the foggiest personal clue who the actual men were that wrote these stories, you don't know where these stories were written and you don't know the dates these stories were written as you continue with your one man drum beating crusade, another bunch of catholics have left the fold.

Keep believing we don't care, if you check the numbers on this forum you will find there are probably just as man EX-CATHOLICS as there are practicing catholics. Not good is it?

FROM THE GLOBAL diabolical TRACK RECORD THAT HAS SURFACED ABOUT YOUR

ONE TRUE APOSTOLIC CHURCH,

evidently SOME OF YOUR PRIEST seem to be unable to grasp the concept of

WHAT being a TRUE SERVANT OF GOD IS.

BEING envious of people who can willingly do WHAT THEY HAVE DONE...

IS BEYOND COMPREHENSION.

THE BIBLE SAYS..

Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Eph 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Eph 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

Eph 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Eph 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

Eph 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Eph 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Eph 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

DustStorm says ZERO tolerance!

You missed the train DustStorm.......the abuse stories in great numbers happened in the past. In the past where the church never acknowledged anything was wrong and ZERO tolerance was not invented yet.

You make up more excuses for criminal behavior. I will always be an advocate for abused or taken advantaged children/women or youth, while you will always be an advocate for finding more excuses for dirty old men in your church, who created this mess in the first place.

ZERO tolerance!(lol) 10 years too late!

I think you can sense your agenda slipping away here as people are tiring your pathtic drumbeat of the sex abuse topic. It must be like an alcoholic loooking at the last drop of vodka in his bottle, he's desperate for more, but he's out of cash. Take my advice Mike and find another forum, or better yet, do something nice for your wife today.

<quoted text>I got into working with sex offenders in the 80's. Yopu are correct.The state of treatment was horribly misguided and off track. Offenders were either taken at their word that they would stop or sent into psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is and remains totally ineffective with sex offenders. We had to fight with a very well known psychiatric institute to try to start sex offender treatment at our institution.They said standard treatment would be sufficient. We traveled to Massachusettes to talk to a man named Nick Groth, who was a pioneer in sopecialized sex offender treatment in those days. From there to see Fay Honey Knopp etc and we started a program.For adolescents. Specialized sex offender treatment can be effective.
My point is the Church did what others were doing during that time frame.
What is most important is what they are doing in the present. Hopefully they are using the top of the line treatment. Hopefully the culture of denial where it existed is being corrected.
Exactly raising awareness is important, and in order to do that the denial by many who just point at the Catholic church is a reality. What is best to do those found guilty and to prevent them from doing it again is a work in progress. I think we are going to be seeing a lot more lawsuits against schools. If we are going to go back decades on them then its going to cost tax payers alot of money to put people who are dead on trial, which is what is pursued against the church. In Colorado legislation was introduced solely against the Catholic church to prosecute such cases. If Bishops are now going to be held accountable and they should be if they become aware and follow what they are instructed. Then, that same accountablity needs to apply to administrators of every organization or clear cut policies, procedures and penalties put in place. It does no good to single out one organization. People who really care about preventing abuse, stopping it and minimizing the damage these people do realize that.

In one city they put into play any Catholic Priest who was accused even if found not guilty who moves into a neighborhood must give the residents notice. Note: Only Catholic and Not even convicted just accused. How do things like that make people look at the problem at large? It doesnt! I was talking to a guy the other day who thinks we should give pedophiles more chances. No he wasnt Catholic. I asked him how many should they get. He shrugged his shoulders.

Lets put them all in jail anthony. Right? Any convicted protestant clergy, catholic clergy and any clergy who lied, and covered up these crimes as well........right Anthony?

Well, that may be true for some, but that it would shine the light on them and cost them alot of money and shame and theyre would be alot of people who never really got saved, but they can know for sure as the saying goes. They were never really srong in the faith anyway as KM would say. As I have said before the people in here don't really care about the abused. Its more important to have a false card to play living in a delusional world of denial.
