Sex Abuse is a Bigger Problem With Protestants? You don't say?
Edit: just found this excerpt from Leonard Alt who commented on it and we think he raises an excellent point about the abuse hoax which keeps getting swept under the rug, enjoy and please reuse this information the next time you're confronted by people who still mistakenly think this is primarily a Catholic problem:
I apologize to my Protestant friends who do get it; this is not for you.This is for the few Protestants who don’t know the facts and then make unfair cheap shots at the Catholic Church.
ROGER ASKED A GOOD QUESTION: IF the Catholic Church was the REAL CHURCH... Why do they PERMIT... Priests & Bishops.... TO MOLEST CHILDREN...?
LENNY ASKS A GOOD QUESTION AS WELL: If the Protestant Churches were the REAL CHURCH…Why do they PERMIT…Protestant ministers & deacons TO MOLEST CHILDREN… and then criticize Catholics when Protestants have a larger problem in their own churches?

I have to admit I was surprised at a few of my Protestant friends who still wanted to stand in judgment of the Catholic Church even after they learned there was a bigger problem in Protestant Christianity. They are acting like modern day Pharisees pointing out the sin of others while not acknowledging their own.
“The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself,,“O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity—greedy, dishonest, adulterous –or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, and I pay tithe on my whole income”(Lk 18:11-12).
The Evangelicals were busy confessing the sin of Catholics rather than their own sin.
But why do they do it when Jesus spoke against this?

I'm sorry that it had to come to this, but I knew once they realized their theological arguments were used up they needed to go the sex abuse route. Now that they know it's a two-edged sword they have nothing left.

So who will get to hell first?
You guys have been arguing about this for years.
Anyone winning yet?
#413864 Jan 7, 2013
Sorry, but all do have the problem, Preston. You just don't know about it, or your particular local community is too new and too small to have been affected by it yet. But I can guarantee you that your denomination is not immune. The problem is as old as time.

I have many, many more articles to post if you want to go that route you old fraud.

Sin is Sin no mater who commits it.
It is just that this topix forum is about the Roman Catholic Church..
The BANNER READS..
Roman Catholic church only true church, says Vatican
The Vatican issued a document Tuesday restating its belief that the Roman Catholic Church is the only true church of Jesus Christ.
THE ABOVE CLAIM IS AN INSULT TO ALL REAL CHRISTIANS ON EARTH..
IT ENCOURAGES all OTHER CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS
ALL OF IT'S UNGODLINESS.
If you ROMAN CATHOLICS don't like the flack,...
remove the BANNER AND THE CHALLENGE WILL GO AWAY.
THE SOLUTION IS VERY SIMPLE...REMOVE THE LYING CHALLENGE
IF YOU KEEP THE CHALLENGE BEFORE US...
THEN IT IS AN AXIOM
YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES... AND DEFEND YOUR CLAIM.

"The world may never understand our polity."1 With those seven words, the Southern Baptist Convention’s top official invoked Baptist identity, cast Baptists against the secularism of "the world," and used religious doctrine to defend the denomination’s do-nothing response to the problem of predatory clergy who sexually violate the young and vulnerable. His statements were met with rousing applause from the rally of over seven thousand Baptist believers
At the end of 2008, TIME magazine named the Southern Baptist Convention’s rejection of a clergy sex-abuser database as one of the "top 10 underreported news stories" of the year.3 It was on the same "top 10" list with stories about the deadly conflict in Sri Lanka and the civil war in the Congo. So, the story of Baptist do-nothingness on clergy sex abuse was a story that kept dreadful company.
With a claimed membership of over sixteen million, the Southern Baptist Convention has a population the size of Chile and is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States.4 It has over 101,000 clergy;5 yet it has no effective system of oversight for them.

God's justice caught up with Leyva, as it will with others. He died at about 59 years from skin cancer.

I know you didn't want to, Anthony, but you did nothing wrong. The articles and statistics are very enlightening. I tend to use the Stop Baptist Predators site as they have an old and quite large problem of covering up and transferring guilty ministers. I've given the links to Kay many times, but she's never read a single one.
I've never seen such ugliness as that exhibited by those two...I can't even think of a word for them...as DS said, they're barely human. Can you imagine the gall of her saying that they put God first? Good Lord! Clay has the right idea...just leave them alone to dig their own hole straight to hell.

our denomination was started around 1858 or there about. and we probably have more churches in the state of Ohio than your catholic churches. in our county alone, you have ONE small catholic church with around 45 people more or less(with no full time pastor) and our church in the same town has around a membership of 350.
and less face the facts, you cant keep this behavior a secret for very long, and our denomination has a zero tolerance level when it comes to sin, in the pulpit or out of it. that is why it is called a"holiness denomination".
and I can and would tell you if this ever happened in our churches, I have nothing to hide and I wouldnt hide sin for any person.
BTW, no half catholic babies, it looks like. they broke up with justin going away for two years. and he is mad at me, kinda, since I called him a big dummy on facebook. I take her side and that makes him even madder

Maybe you will.
Yes, I can think of one who *is* winning, actually.
Too bad the others don't realize it.

The reason the catholic church enacts abortion and divorce laws in countries is to get rid of the non-catholics. The catholics listen to the pope who tell them not to have abortions so the abortion laws only affect non-catholics. The catholic politicians who make the law are not excommunicated. This is why there is no such law in Mexico or Ireland where it is majority catholic. The first country to be targeted for depopulation of non-catholics was Russia. Abortion was made law in 1920 following the Russian Revolution which removed the Orthodox from power in Moscow.
The catholics have always stolen non-catholic children. Catholics founded and run the hospitals thus have access to all the children. Even without the hospitals the catholic state in France and Spain and Germany would steal non-catholic children from the Reformation 1540 to the Revolution 1789 when the RC lost power in those states. The practice of stealing children continues today in hospitals of Europe, Australia, Canada and the USA.
Then there's the pedophile rings that are much larger than earlier reported since the RC run s the Boys' Town organization.. and the Indian schools on the reservations.

how about you showing me where ANY Indian schools are run by Catholics, mennonites or any other denomination,on the Rez.?
Lets take Sells Az for instance since I have been there, the schools are run by the county and state just like in Ohio. and In Phoenix, Indian School has been closed for many years. Private schools have also been shut down in that city.
SORRY, but the facts dont support your allegation.
Carlisle Indian schools sordid reputation is in the past, so is your knowledge.
If I am wrong, i will apologize, but I have been there.
#413879 Jan 7, 2013
Why me? I have not acused your church to be more or less guilty than any other, so you are talking out of hate. In fact I have come out and defended your church many times.
