The RCC is like a stopped watch.

Perfect at times, but very rarely, usually by accident -- and no one knows when it's perfect and when it's not.

Did I say that? Have another go. Did I actually type the 'f' word? No. Have another read. Pity you're so petty, I actually agreed with a lot of what you've posted. Reading and comprehension skills are indeed in short supply around here. As is anything to do with Christ.

This was not the sin of a few rogue Priests.

Rather, a moral lapse that is:

... DECADES-LONG,

... WORLDWIDE,

... and INSTITUTIONAL.

No self-respecting God would allow it in HIS Church.

Catholics! Stop saying Jesus has no self-respect?

The problem is that CC folk have been trained to see the CC as their only hope. It has the power to excommunicate them. They fear that they will lose their soul if they question their leaders.
That is why I say that "it is all about JESUS". Preachers and other Christians may exhort/teach us about the gospel...but ONLY ONE can receive us into the Kingdom. This why Paul said that NOTHING can separate us from the love of God.
Trust Him...

michael says.......I see the same thing.

The church is not about equality or love of all. Women are second class citizens in the church with no power or policy making abilities whatsoever, and the churches answer is that the 12 apostles were all men.

45 years ago and before women were not even allowed to ever go up on the churches altar for any reason.

I remember when I was a kid and the church was packed on Easter sunday, they put some of the overflow in the few pews they had on the altar where the altar boys sat, but the ushers in the church only allowed boys and men to sit in those pews. Women had to squeeze in the regular pews.

I know that has changed, but it shows how out of touch the church is with its followers.

No loving God would descriminate.

I believe down the road, celebacy will become optional, and there will be women priests. The catholics today SCREAM NEVER! but when it is instituted they will SCREAM THEN, "WHAT A GREAT IDEA"

The followers always accept what the church does.
I guess thats where I get off the bus.

Christianity is the religion created based soley upon only a portion of Jesus' teachings about "God", not about Jesus, or he being the "Christ".

The church lives in the past. They probably created the movie "BACK TO THE FUTURE"

If we check, we will probably see the Pope has a Delorean car, that stared in the movie.

No fair God would discriminate against women. Women should be as equal as men in the church policy making abilities. Any woman who allows the church to kick women to the curb, has low on self esteem.

WOMEN......

...No policy making abilities in the catholic church.

...Not allowed to go to a seminary to study for the priesthood.
Told that GOD only calls men.(what a croc)

.... Women are made to wear a hat in church. Why?(lol)
men don't have to wear a hat in church.

People wonder why young people today show little interest in organized religion?

Matthew 7:20 Really, then by their fruits YOU will recognize those men.

If you understand the Bible you will know what this scripture means. Jesus is talking about false religion producing good or bad fruits. Do you think the Catholic church has is producing good fruits with their reputation of burning people at the stake and all these child molestation cases?

The "material"doesn't change! That is because the "truth" has, is and will continue to "remain the same", as it has, and will continue to remain the same, from over 2000 years
Ask the 42,000+ contradicting and conflicting Protestants. They have "new material" every "five minutes". That's why there are over 42,000 different denominations that "can't agree on anything" accept attacking, condemning and passing their "personal opinion" judgment against us Catholics and against Jesus Christ and His One True Church.

Know how to clean up the scandals in the church?

Remove all the male clerics including the pope. Make them all women. No woman would with any authority would EVER allow a child to be harmed. If all the priests were women there would be no abuse scandals on young children. If all the cardinals and the pope were women, there would be no money laundering scandals as I have never heard of a woman involved in any such thing.

Let the people pick the pope and the cardinals, and if they have a bad report card, out they go. God would approve.

Pick a womans name? Any name, lets just call her REGINA. A woman named REGINA would be POPE REGINA Ist.

Pick only beautiful women, that would get attention of the male followers and church attendance would rise dramatically.

WIN WIN for everyone including the image of the church.....a no brainer.

You continue to prove over and over again that you could "care less" about the truth of "anything"regarding the CAtholic
Church. You, Michael, habitually "throw out anything" on this forum that is anti-catholic---hoping that "something sticks"!---of which it "never" does!!!

Answer my QUESTION?

If you stole a bicycle and told a priest in the confessional, the priest would tell you to return the bike, tell the person you stole it from that you were sorry, before you were absolved for your sin.

If a priest molested a child and went to a priest for confession, shouldn't the priest hearing his confession tell the offending priest to go the the victims family and say he was sorry? Wouldn't the confessional priest tell this priest to turn himself into authorities?

The confessional priest can't divulge the other priests confession but whats the point in going to confession if you are not going to be responsible for your crime?

How can someone be absolved from sin, if they have no intention of making what is wrong right again by accepting punishment deserved for the crime?

Not one molesting priest ever turned himself in to authorities and not one of them ever went to a victims family to say he was sorry. How can a molesting priest ever have this sin removed if they didn't really show remorse for their sin, by turning themselves in and serve the punishment for the crime? ARE YOU OK WITH THAT?

Answer this question.

If you stole a bicycle and you felt guilty and went to confession and told the priest you stole the bicycle what would any good priest tell you to do?

HOJO........HOW DO YOU KNOW that a molesting priests never apologize to their victims!

MICHAEL says..........SHOW ME EXAMPLES!

Give me one example where a molesting priest went to authorities to turn himself in because the priest in the confessional told him to?

NEVER HAPPENED! WHY?

If you stole a bicycle the priest HEARING YOUR CONFESSION would tell you to return it to the owner. Right?

Doesn't the priest hearing confession have an moral obligation to express to the molesting priest to do the right thing before he is absolved from sin? If you are not going to serve justice for your sin, than why is the sin absolved?

....something is terribly wrong hojo!
