Do you realize how not normal it is to post about this subject around the clock ...everyday for the last two yrs.

I could be wrong, but you even went as far to say you were molested by a Priest. I won't bother going back two yrs to find the post.. I know you later denied it- so I have to take your word for it now. After all, you seem like an honest person. Lol

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.
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.

Because you use this subject as a platform to launch your anti Catholic tirade. That's all. The statistics don't warrant your odd obsession of this subject. So why do you use an evil like child sexual abuse for your own personal vendetta?
Sick sick sick.
People would have to be blind to not see that you struggle with attraction to children. Its simple psychology 101.
The statistics don't warrant you says

1700 YEARS! 17 CENTURIES recorded in YOUR OWN catholic canon laws..........and you still don't want to believe it.

I have ONLY stated ever that I stand up for anyone abused, man woman or child, and you Mr Puke haven't got the cohonies to even say you support any victims of abuse, you only have the FEAR instilled in you to continue to stand up for an organization that has paid out over $3 Billion in lawsuits for thousands of abusive clergy and countless numbers of lieing, deceiving bishops who kept these most disgusting secrets from you and all other catholics and the authorities and now after 1700 years decide its time to come clean.........SHAME ON YOU!

I will always stand up for anyone taken adavantage of, and you just keep deflecting the issue onto others, where you should also be standing up against anyone taken advantage of.

You are totally silent on that issue.......UNBELIEVABLE!

<quoted text>
This is all very nice, Dan, and in a sense I agree with you since the reality is that there *are* many different expressions. However, it begs the question: was there supposed to be? In faithfulness to the Gospel, with a clear conscience, can you honestly say it was Christ's intention to have different expressions of His truth? I can't...and I'm not talking about practices, rituals, etc.
Regina,I had the priviledge years ago to spend a year and several months in South Wales,the city of Swansea.Like everywhere else in Europe and the Americas,a given city has a hodge podge of many Christian churches,all different affiliations ans so on.The college I attended there was an evangelical one,it was not basically any one particular Christian denomination,although it never was referred to as non-denominational,as the Brits view that subject differently than we do.

I can recall that not more than three persons were part of one particular denomination,but that almost every group in the Prot world was represented.We had :Anglicans,Presbyterians,Congr egationalists,Evangelicals(and Pentecostals)
all under the same roof,all missionary minded.There were some differences in the way people viewed baptism and communion,but for the most part we all were Christ centered,Bible oriented,and believing in the basics of the Christian faith:HIS life,Incarnation,teachings,suf fering,Crucifixion,Death and RESURRECTION.We all read the same Bible,and worked together in ministries,which included going to hospitals,prisons,street ministries,and the local churches.

Although we might have our differences,and knew about them,we made it our goal to work together as a common goal to be a blessing from the College to the Community.And we saw the fruit of our joint efforts as well.The Anglicans were much like the Catholics so we saw that tradition on a regular basis.Also at times we went to the Liturgical Mass of the Anglicans which is Catholic,minus the Papacy.Although as evangelicals we did not make a practice of going with our Anglican brothers to their mass,we never argued with them about their beliefs in regards to Communion,which is typically Catholic.

Now you have to realize Regina,that we all were confident in our own experience with Christ,and the college was basically evangelical,our services were plain and simple,not Anglican at all.But we made it our choice to serve Christ and to work together with the Anglicans who were considered Catholics.A priest from the community spoke to the men's groups on several occasions,and he wore the Roman Collar,and preached and taughty,with us being totally respectful to his position,and seeing him as a brother in Christ.

It is Christ whom we preach,and His life,death and resurrection.The fact that He is God,Incarnate,and that He will return again to bring the Holy Kingdom of the Father in reality to this sick world.So with the same message of Hope in Christ the Son of God,and God the Son,we continue as believers to spread the good news of the Gospel.Maybe with a different twist as it were,but with the same Holy Spirit and His power to move human hearts.

You must take in consideration the Power of the Holy Spirit to change hearts and minds toward Christ,and the many expressions of Christian endeavor reach the many different types of people,and challenges in this world.Prots and their many groups can reach people groups that would never respond to a Catholic priest and formal mass.It is obvious these days that many people are being reached who would never step foot in a church like the one you attend,yet are open to hearing the Gospel.The same faith of truth and Christ,but a different approach in delivering the Holy Message.

Yet, when we finally respond to your 20,000 posts, you accuse us for defending the Church and not the victim.

ReginaM. started off this story yesterday. Why don't you post the same thing to her?

You keep making up excuses for the biggest disgusting story in your church in 500 years.

I personally know a two people who were molested by roman catholic priests and one was a girl who is today a middle aged woman..........and you just keep up with your excuses for these bad asses, that have been caught and the rest of them that still roam the churches today.

I can't believe that anyone can find an excuse to cover up a 1700 years of criminal behavior that was all kept secret........and you think thats OK.

1700 years.......DOCUMENTED by your own church records...

I will always be an advocate for anyone taken adavantage of and you will ALWAYS defend those that were the perpitrators.

Doesn't say much good about you Clay does it?

Jesus (and St. Paul) praised a celibate priesthood and religious life. He says it's a gift from God. It is without question biblical.
Your continuous criticism of this practice tells me you have a deep-seated animosity towards the Catholic faith and you probably have resentment and/or jealousy of men and women who are willing to forego sexual intimacy in their dedication to the kingdom.
And your continued cheap shots at the abuse of minors by a small percentage of sick and disturbed men who should never have been priests tells me you have no other argument than to dig into the gutter for ammunition. That's a very unchristian thing to do.
As usual, you have completly ignored the facts. THE FACT is that NIETHER JESUS (or St. PAUL) mandated such a state for the ministry. If JESUS Himself did not make such a requirement, why does the RCC think they have a right to place restrictions on the calling of the man of God that God Himself did NOT place? Your silly response is like Obamaha playing the race card any time someone questions his leadership. You try to imply that it is somehow wrong and unchristian to address the FACT of the world wide sex abuse scandal that rocked the whole world. It is niether wrong nor unchristian to deal with the reality of the problem and look into the factors that paved the way for it to happen. So get real. The real question is why the RCC took it upon themselves to MANDATE a requirement for GOD'S ministers that GOD HIMSELF NEVER MANDATED? And why 1000 yrs after thier inception? Question: WERE THEY WRONG THE FIRST 1000 YRS? OR ARE THEY WRONG NOW? Can you answer the question?

I'm afraid you're really confused about the whole thing. It is a discipline, not a dogmatic teaching. The Church could decide next week that all priests can get married and it wouldn't be "wrong". It comes down to the issue of men and women who willingly sacrifice personal pleasure "for the kingdom of heaven."
Is personal sacrifice that unknown in protestant circles? I'm beginning to wonder.
Why do yo fight so hard to keep from answering the question? Could it be that in your heart you see that there is indeed a problem? I will ask you AGAIN FOR AN ANSWER. The RCC allowed married prests for 1000 yrs. THEN they decided to chane th requirements for priests for the next 1000 yrs. WHICH POSITION IS 'RIGHT'? Which position is biblical? Come on Anthony, you can do it. ANSWER the question, PLEEZ :)

During that time period! Anytime period in the past if a man molested or raped a woman the police were called. They didn't call a pychiatrist.
More BS! excuses especially for the LIEING, DECEIVING and COVERING UP of these FELONY CRIMES by the BISHOPS.
There is no EXCUSE for criiminal behavior.
Nearly 3 Billion dollars paid out so far for criminal behavior by catholic clergy. The money that was not covered by insurance was paid for by you and all other catholics who put money on the collection plates, nothing from the actually molestors or lieing Bishops who created this mess in the first place.
1700 years of sexual abuse by catholic clergy, and that is all you got?
UNBELIEVABLE!
I am with you.You must charge them. And when they are locked up you must give treatment cause they will be out one day.

I don't care if the church folds or succeeds. If the very teachers of your faith who claim to be advocates of morality, haven't been advocates of morality, why do you defend them?

HOHO you little clown, you claim 2000 yrs of truth. Then how is it that the RCC for 1000 yrs. taught and practised that it was 'ALRIGHT' for thier priests to be married, and then changed thier minds and for the last 1000 yrs. have taught that it is 'NOT ALRIGHT' for thier priests to be married? Which position is biblical. Which position aligns with God's requirements for ministers? Was or is the RCC wrong to make requirements that GOD HIMSELF DID NOT MAKE? BTW, spare me the PARROT routine and just answer the question if you can be honest enough.
