BUSTED!
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.

If priests hear the confession (I don't believe they do) of another priest, and this priest tells the confessional priest he sexually molested a young boy, wouldn't the priest hearing the confession advice this priest to do the right thing? Go to the authorities tell them what you did, and go to the victims family expressing remorse? RIGHT?
NEVER HAPPENED ONCE!......but I am sure lots of bicycles have been returned.

Michael--your mind is so "scrambled" with anti-catholic vengeance and hatred that (for you) everything that comes out of your mouth is "extreme, overblown, exaggerated nonsense. What is this garbage "NEVER HAPPENED ONCE!" How do you know it NEVER HAPPENED ONCE! No wonder nobody believes "anything you say" when you make (outrageous) ridiculous statements like this!!!Just like the anti-catholic exaggerated "trash sources" you come up with.

Soooooooo profound.
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!

If I didn't care about the TRUTH I wouldn't waste one minute on this forum trying to straighten you out.

again if you told a priest in the confessional or even in a conversation that you stole a bicycle any good priest would demand that you return it to the owner and apologize, or the sin would remain on your soul.

Why is it different for molesting clergy, who also went to confession, that they don't have to return to the scene of their crime, and express remorse for their actions, and they don't have to go to authorities to close the book on the crime they committed?

WHY do you have to, but they don't?

Wouldn't you believe he would know them all off by heart? He has repeated that statement 42,000 different denominations, over 547 times on this forum.

Maybe he can start with those that start with the letter A, and enlighten us.

You know he won't respond, with an intelligent answer. Because there is no answer.

Sorry, Michael, but that plan wouldn't work. Beautiful women can be seduced...and often are. Then they do what their 'boss' wants them to do. So you are under indirect male dominance.

Men are intended to be head of things. Husband means 'house-bander'. He is what holds it all together. I believe that women can preach and teach...and should. But under 'submission'. Sub means 'under' or secondary; mission is the calling. Men are called to lead families, churches and nations. Their MISSION. Women are to support THEIR man.

Sadly, women have been known to pull some finacial 'boners', and to mistreat children.

Why not give it a try? God knows its not working the way it is now.

A new approach might be all we need.

Today in america 40% of women run households by themselves. Its not a mans world anymore. In a few years you will see a woman President, we have many congresswomen, female mayors, police officers, female firefighters, doctors, lawyers, nurses, bus drivers, garbage men, airplane pilots.

Its not 1954 anymore.

Apology is not going to fix the emotional traumas they have caused hundreds of victims. They robbed their lives. These preachers should do time like all the rest of wicked criminals. The robe doesn't make them holy men

When we go to confession, the priest instructs us to go make restitution (personally)(if the individual is geographically accessible) Any Catholic knows that!! So whats your point!!
How do you Michael, as an "isolated" ex-Catholic--sitting on your comdemning and judgemental (SOAP BOX) know that molesting priest did or did not go and make amends with their victims. YOU HAVE NO CLUE, YOU HAVE NO IDEA, AND YOU HAVE "NOTHING" to back up ANY of your "outrageous (goofy) assumptions) whether this happened or not! Why do you "keep assuming" by your "opinionated anti-catholic exaggerations" that none of this took place!! Every time you post and comment on this forum, you try to "pull the same old" (made up) overblown and senseless hype!!!

Women are running households, and we DO have many congresswomen. I see few good representatives (picture Nancy Pelosi!). The Governor of Arizona is one good example.

Godliness is the missing element in men AND women. Without that element, we are doomed.
