My mistake.
Then what? I mean since you have no sinners in your worship community, I'd think you'd like to share the information.
Oh come on now Regina...I never said we didn't have sinners.

So if your parish was involved in a molestation lawsuit would you contiue to support them financially?

Actually not all protestant ecclesiastical unions have insurance. Some have been denied, some have been dropped and others think they dont need it, because they deny that it could ever happpen in their church or dont believe in it.

Many of them simply have no polcy. You know the not in my church mentality. That never happens to born agains routine. You have seen it over and over in here havent you? They werent really saved. ;0 The insurance statistics that have been published by major media do not fare well for Protestants and only include the 3 major companies who offer it. Those reports cited also excluded churches of largely black population, therefore it would largely inflate the Protestant number of cases. The point I have always made is I dont really care which denonimation has more what I do care about is people who try to deny it does or could ever exist in their midst so they do nothing and just point fingers at others. In the end nothing can be accomplished by those who think that way other then to foment hatred toward other groups using a fallacy.
Nearly $3 BILLION so far in lawsuits in the catholic church.

What insurance didn't pay, YOU HELPED PAY. Anyone who puts money on the collection plate is paying for bad deeds of the fathers.

I am sure the priests/bishops and Cardinals thankyou for your support.

I thank you for your support of them.....

Where did you find all these 'facts'??? Our insurance company simply added such coverage on their own when the CC problem became so openly known.

We haven't really needed it; I've only known five cases in all my years, and only one of those was a member of our denomination...and he lived halfway across the country from us. Not including Bakker and Swaggart...though those two were not molesting children.

You said none of you commit certain sins. You're selective sinners, then? lol!

So how does one determine if a baptist gathering is part of the SBC or not?

Oops, you forgot to address my point. Try again.

Common Sense 101......

It's impossible to argue that Jesus would want His supposed "only true church" to use diplomatic immunity to avoid accountability.

No self-respecting God would hand-pick such a church to guide the salvation of mankind.

That's just common sense.

Just like no God would NEVER allow the perpetrator of the largest child sex-abuse COVER-UP in world history to be God's messenger of "perfect moral teachings."

That's just common sense. There is no reason that any God would play such absurd games, yet teach....

"... for ye shall know them by their deeds."

The "only true" is beyond absurd.

Catholics better learn what has been going on. Of course your priest isn't going to tell you what has happened in your diocese.

Blame Michael for posting you the truth......

I use to coach baseball and basketball with a friend of mine at a catholic school. When charges came out against priests it was then that anyone involved with children had to go through a program and they put policies in place as well. In the 25 years at the catholic church, I'd never seen anything like it. So why didn't the church have these programs and policies in place before the charges came out?
Hindsight is always 20/20 isn't it Chuck? We weren't aware of it. Why didn't most large organizations like public schools, the Boy Scouts, the SBC, other mainstream protestant groups, etc. have them years ago? They weren't aware of how widespread and serious the problem was either.

Actually we did have policies in place before, but they were outdated and new technology as well as substantially increased knowledge and awareness of the profile of sexual predators allowed us to put in place a policy that is better than any large organization on the planet. Yours included.
Saying we only did it because we got "caught" implies we just wanted to avoid getting sued in the future and don't care about the safety of children. If that's your position, our conversation is over.
Tony...if policies were in place why weren't adults involved with children put through programs and told about policies in the 25 years I was at the catholic church?

It was not until the charges came out when they instituted them. Why were adults never told about them?

Old hag, lol! What a snot-nosed, whiny baby you are.

Catholic Parishes are NOT involved in molestation lawsuits!...Catholic Parishes don't commit pedphile acts or sexual abuse!!...... Only a "small % handful" of priests who have gone against the moral, ethical and spiritual virtues taught to them, proclaimed by them, along with their supported vows, that they have taken in their personal relationship to Jesus Christs, and to HIS One True Catholic Church (the Bride of Christ),(these priests) are the ones that are held responsible for their perverted actions.

So God's church would also be flawed because sinners lead it.
