Homosexuality is not in and of itself a sin. It is the action that's sinful. I never said post-pubescent males were *in* the priesthood. Kay, you're grasping at straws. You enjoy attacking the Church and will say absolutely anything, true or not, in order to do so. You threw down the sex abuse card, turned it into strictly pedophilia which it isn't, and are now trying to say that those who enter the priesthood and religious life are mere teenagers who haven't a clue as to what they're doing. According to you they're discerning vocations because the notion of responding to a higher calling sounds romantic. It couldn't possibly be that these are highly educated adults who've given a tremendous amount of thought and prayer for several years in their discernment of a life of service to God, to answer His personal call, to build up and minister to His kingdom. Self control for love of God...what a concept!
Robert was right, priests are married to the Church. At one point, the disciples ask Christ if it is "expedient not to marry?" He replies that "not all can accept this teaching; but those to whom it has been given. For there are eunuchs who were born so...and there are eunuchs who have made themselves so for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let him accept it who can" (Mt 19:10-12).

Hey Regina:)

You know my take on this right? The sin part comes in when your young men love the church more than God who made it. Therefore they don't know or follow the Gospel but their flesh and are NOT SAVED. We know this because many others can serve God for a lifetime and not fall into that sort of sin.

I would like to have a back and forth with this with you Regina I believe we could both come to better understanding, not now though bed time, love you:)

The article does not contend the definition of pedophilia you have given.
Second, The conclusion is based on the John Jay Independent study and they say, "Another key difference found in the study is that a little less that half of the priests (1881) were found to be subject to unsubstantiated allegations.
An unsubstantiated allegation was defined as “an allegation that was proven to be untruthful and fabricated” as a result of a criminal investigation. This rate of false accusations is much higher than found in the general population.
So I suppose you could challenge the methodology of how they arrived at the rate, nevertheless it was the finding and that information is not provided. One can also easily argue that just as many factors are involved regardless of the institution and some of those possible motives are given. Regardless it is not anywhere near the focus of the study nor does it seek to discredit legitimate claims, but rather look at the whole for the fullest extent of the picture. The numbers are the numbers.
Third, I think the article was more than fair in pointing out that no definite statisitics can be applied in terms of false memory.

The Palestinian Jews of the early Christian era rejected the Apocrapha. The Jews of Palestine-including the Jewish Council of Jamnia, which met in A.D.90-rejected the Apocrypha. This is understandable, in view of the fact that there were no Jewish Propets who lived during the 400 yr. period between the old and new testaments.(the time that much of the Apocrypha was written).In keeping with this, ancient Jewish historian Flavius josephus excluded the Apocrypha from Scripture. Philo, a Jewish eacher who lived in the first century,quoted from almost every canonical Old Testament book, but never once quoted from the Aprocrypha.

I'll stick to the TRUTH of history and the bible with Jesus Christ at (Daily Mass, the Eucharist, the biblical readings, the Sacraments and the Adoration Prayer Chapel, in and through Our Lords One True Apostolic Catholic Church, which continues to grow (world-wide) each and every day. Hope your atheism, or agnosicism or "whatever -unbelief of the TRUTH--- that you "prefer to hold onto"---works out for you!!
you can deny it till hell (the church) freezes over,but the people know the truth,your church is not what it claims to be,and it's incomprehensible that they would make such a rediculous statement considering their past history of murders,tortures,molestings,mo ney laundering,bank fraud,and who knows what else they've done,it's all factual,you are just blinded by the sparkles and glitter they put on display in their churches to get you to believe they are the real deal.jesus was rejected as the son of god because he looked ordinary to people,a true devine king,would look like royalty, dressed in fancy robes of silk an linens,that is what people would think,and the c.c. is doing the same thing,they build these architechual wonders and fill them with gold and silver trinkets and put idols on the walls to draw people to them and take them for their money,that's all they care about,they themselves proved that by covering up the child molesting that was going on.the most hideous of crimes against a child and they did not care,and you want to call it gods true church,that is the biggest farce i've ever heard.

Daily Mass, the Eucharist, the biblical readings, the Sacraments and the Adoration Prayer Chapel....JETHRO:this is all man made B.S. if the history i posted is wrong prove it,instead of just throwing insults and garbage around,prove that the crimes i spoke of are untrue,i know for a fact you can't do that,because if you could,you would of by now,but you just utter the same old thing post after post,and none of it contains any real historical facts. prove they didn't torture people into joining the church,prove the church of antioch was not taken by force,prove the crusades are a myth,prove they never touched a child,prove they never laundered money for the mafia,and commited bank fraud,prove they had the devine right to change gods commandments,prove it's ok to worship idols/saints. ball is your side of the court now. show some true factual history that proves everything i posted is wrong....good luck.

thanks for asking,i'll be fine,i hope,my doctor is just concerned about my unexplainable weight loss and the run down tired feeling i constantly have,and he believes it is because of the chemo drug i take,he has told me i should stop working and go on disability,he's been trying for a year to get me to do,but i don't feel comfortable doing it,because i'm not disabled to the point that it would kill me to do what i do,it's not an easy job but it helps keep me in good shape, so i thought,but they think otherwise,my family is pushing me also to go on disability. the big factor will be money,what i'd be getting on a monthly basis will factor into any decission i make,i have time to think it through and that's what i'm going to do for now.

Are you sensible? The CC has a history of abuse from 31ce. The 12 Inquisitions for example. Constantine was the first Pope, a Pagan from Rome. All of the teachings of the CC are from Babylon, 2000 years before Christ. Leave the CC church, find the right way to serve God. If you search, He will find you. I do promise.
When someone starts out an argument, "Constantine was the first Pope .. "

It really doesn't matter what point they are trying to make afterwards.
I don't mean to insult you, but Constantine was never a Pope. Anti Catholics can't provide any evidence that Catholicism was different before and after Constantine. However, Catholics can provide evidence that our faith was remarkably similar pre 330 Ad and after.

<quoted text>But you are changing the subject. YOU SAID that any unrepentant sin of a believer was "not covered by the blod of Jesus". Which would be enough to condemn one to hell. The fact is, the MOMENT we recieve Christ, we are given a 'FREE GIFT'. All of our sins are at that moment placed under the blood of Jesus. If they are not, we are not saved; we have no assurence of heaven, we are not sealed by the Holy Spirit unto the day of redemption, We do not have ETERNAL LIFE. We are only 'pardoned' untill the next time we 'fall short of the Glory of God. THEN we would have to be saved all over again.....and on and on we would go.
Proverbs 28:13

13 Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,
but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.

Genesis 3:11

11 And he said,“Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

What were the consequences of their unrepentant hearts from the sin they committed?

Whenever there is an unrepentant heart, there must be judgment from God.
