Oh, OK. You're free to go.
A good post that speaks directly to the title of this board.

"Waaaaaa, everybody else does it." Catholics here say their god has no higher standards for his "bride."

I am here to defend Jesus against such charges.

On behalf of Jesus, I thank you.

There's no "everyone else is doing it" defense here. We've said all along that the guilty sicko priests should go to prison along with the bishops who purposely covered up. Make no mistake, the perp priests will get theirs in the end if they didn't repent.
But thanks for your advice, I'll be sure not to try it.

That is right jethro I agree.
Man has crawled into a box of religion, and now they are trapped there.
Instead of sticking to the gospel that Jesus preached, they have created a tradition of man made religious doctrine. It has nothing to do with Christ, Jethro .
The catholic faith has built a man made institution, built on the teachings of corrupted greedy blood thirst men.
If I agreed with the catholic doctrine, I would be saying to people it is ok if they robbed, tortured, and murdered millions of people, its ok if the priest and nuns raped and beat little children, its ok if the POPE lied about it.
How anyone can sit in such a vile evil place and call it the only true church of Christ is mind boggling.
you can't blame the followers of the church LT,after all they had no idea what was going on,everything is done behind closed doors,they got away with a lot of things but now thanks you courageous people who have stepped forward and spoke out against the church,the truth is coming to light,it's far more sinister than we knew of,and yes i don't understand how people with or wothout children can attend a church that has committed thw worst sin possible can sit there and listen to the lies coming out of the mouths of priests.i'm just very very glad i was not indoctrinated into the church of evil doings. my mother was a smart woman and did not fall for the trappings of organized religion,she relied on her bible for truth and comfort,we were never forced to believe in any group at all,just the bible.

I'm not calling you any names, I just concerned about those around you based on your obvious obssession with child sex.
I suggest you read the bible, or Jefferson's abridged version anyway, and see how Jesus dealt with sinners. That would be a good start.
Here's a good start on Morals 101....

#1: Facilitating child abuse is immoral, even if not technically illegal.

No matter what you say, I will continue to say Jesus would NOT allow a child-abuser or child-abuse facilitator to remain as an Apostle.

Your church says differently (see Cardinal Law).

I am glad you call me sick for disagreeing with your church. I am honored. Thank you.

JETHRO:this like the other churches is a lie,show me where jesus states he is catholic and started the catholic church? for that matter any of the other churches you mentioned? again i ask the question why would he build his church in a country he has never been to, and enslaved his people,beat and tortured them? stole the scriptures from them, does that make sense to you?? if anything he should be destroying the church and restoring the scriptures to their rightful owners "everyone". the catholic church being the true church is as funny as a new york farmer starting the true church.

Some people throw the Paganism accusation at the Church out of paranoia. Others throw it out of ignorance. Ironically , they do it while wearing a wedding ring (wedding rings are of Pagan origin)
The fact is: Catholics worship The One True God of Abraham and Jesus Christ - savior of the world. It really don't matter what we are wearing. God is not particularly picky about fashion.

Our Priests wear robes during the Mass. Do you also have a problem with Jewish Rabbis who wear similar attire?

Jesus built His Church on a guy who denied Him. Jesus knows we will all sin, what's important is whether we repent.

About 70 yrs after Christ died, Christians began calling themselves Catholic. Rome quickly became the headquarters.
These are facts Jethro.

If the Catholic Church is not the one started by Christ and not the true Church, then who is? Why?
If you say its Confrints Pentecostal community, I'm going to spit my beer over the floor.

Only Satan would still count people as members - who haven't been to Satan's RCC church in over 40 years.
If one does NOT want to be formerly counted, one must file a form and pay Satan money.

I don't want to be counted, but I also refuse to pay money to an organization which enables child abuse at orphanages.
".... created his website partly because of anger about the way the church covered-up or downplayed sexual abuse occurring in Catholic orphanages, boarding schools and seminaries."
The Catholic Satan worshipers here don't care about deeds, they only care about words -- exactly the opposite of what Jesus preached.
They say it's all the media's fault. In a sense it is.
Because for over 1500 years before the mass media, children had no recourse, except to be quietly raped and abused by RCC Priests.

I had read one reason the early Church Bishops put on their hats and robes (way before Constantine btw) was because they wished to be identified when the Roman soldiers stormed the meeting place of the Mass.
Christ is the good shepherd who lays His life down for the sheep. To be a Bishop pre Constantine meant certain death. The Bishops were arrested and executed. The hats and robes quickly identified them so no lay people would be taken away.
Confrint would run out the back door.. just saying..

anyway,
I'll try and find a link later.

Do I believe the slander laced propaganda handed out by you guys? No! Its easily proven as a lie.
You're taking a sin by members of the CC and pouncing on it; blowing it up and using it to promote your ideology.

Does yours not say that when the Israelis defeated another town, that they could take any virgin female as their wife? If you need, I can send you a copy.

"I just googled, "church sex abuse compared to the rest of the population"."

So what. Lot's of militant atheists out there like you who have a giant axe to grind with the Catholic Church. Have fun.

"Does yours not say that when the Israelis defeated another town, that they could take any virgin female as their wife? If you need, I can send you a copy."

I have no interest in debating the bible with a militant atheist, it's like watching paint dry.

Hey clown, just produce the evidence that the pope knew bishops were covering up child abuse. Since it's so 'obvious' you should have no problem. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for pointing out where I made my mistake in using reality! Oh, wait... you didn't, you side step reality and went for the hypothetical.
