Actually Anthony at least 30 states have extended the statute of limitations and I believe 2 did suspend the limitations for a year. In California the Suprem court ruled it unconstitutional. Legislation and lobbying has been fast and furious. Statutes of limitations were put in place for a reason. To allow prosecution of 60 year old cases the information is often so unreliable and dead people are sued.
Its not just the church. However many state legislatures have introduced protections against public schools and teachers while enacting provisions targeting specifically the Catholic Church. SNAP has been criticized by more than a few Protestants and they have stated openly that they believe the Catholic church is being singled out in particular by SNAP. One look at their website and 90% of the comments and that becomes pretty clear. I read an artccle written by A Lutheran not long ago who wrote that abuse cases even ones prosecuted dont make the news like the Catholic Church does and expressed remorse for that. It took what he claimed was many mispresentations against a suit filed against a Lutheran church that never made the news to make him see this.
Lawyers have been fighting hard to eliminate ALL statute of limitations which would unleash a fury of lawsuits and be disastrous for alot of secular groups not just the church. 1 in 6 Americans receive care in a Catholic Hospital in the USA. Many prominent universities would be shutdown and charity organizations would scream to a halt. Many organizations would be bankrupt some never to recover again. Legislatures are well aware of the implications of lifting limitations as states, colleges and public schools and state government in general would be targets of massive amounts of money and force extreme cuts. Nobody has clean hands when it comes to dealing with these things especially if we want to go back 60 years or longer.
.....and just think. If all these offending priests had just kept their zippers up, and the knowing priests/bishops who called their pyschiatrists instead of the POLICE, "AND THAT ALL OF THEM PRACTICED WHAT THEY PREACH TO THE FOLLOWERS" none of this would be happening and the nearly $3 BILLION in lawsuits would in reality just a drop in the bucket.

I can't believe you can't figure out where the REAL blame lies in these matters. What type of brain blockage do you have?

UNBELIEVALBE!

Its time Dust Storm to lay the blame where it belongs.

Michael says......OK Anthony, what is the much much more that you know about the churches problems that you haven't shared with your fellow posters?
There are no secrets on this forum. You said you know more, tell us more. Don't be shy.
lol, the more facts you post, the goofier they get.

Such as... "I have faith, hope and charity. You don't."

In defense of Christianity, that is not the norm.

First, the abusers and those who protected the abusers, must be brought to justice. You cannot demand forgiveness, whilst committing the crime.

Second, the catholics must admit to the crime, the cover up and do their best to make amends. So far, the catholic church has cried that they do not have the money to pay the victims; then they turn around and buy the crystal cathedral for $58 million!

The catholic church is not asking for forgiveness.

Dust, stop the denial. You are better than that.
I will reply directly to your 3 questions.
Q1... Dust asks -- "Will some people never be able to forgive?"
A1... Free answers -- For most of the victims, probably not. For forgiveness, rest of the world wants the exact same thing the RCC say wants. Start with a full confession. The penance and atonement come later.
Be honest with yourself and others -- using diplomatic immunity on three fronts is a long way from a FULL CONFESSION. What happened in Ireland recently? Start with a FULL CONFESSION.
Q2... Dust -- "Will anything short of destruction of the church be enough for some?"
A2... Free Mind -- See Answer #1. No Dust, start with a FULL CONFESSION. Stop using diplomatic immunity and other tactics to block the honest-to-God truth.
Q3... Dust -- "Who will be the next to blame when the problem doesn't go away?"
A3... Free Mind -- This is denial, pure and simple and it hardly makes sense. The RCC has been the one to point fingers... the American media, over-zealous police, society in general, blah, blah. The RCC and Dust need to stop playing the victim. See A#1.
In conclusion....
The largest child sex-abuse scandal and COVER-UP in world history has EVERYTHING to do with the TOPIC OF THIS BOARD.
The "ONLY TRUE" thing may have worked when few humans could read and never ventured more than 12 miles from were they were born. But the Age of Knowledge has doomed those absurd old mystical claims forever.
The RCC has painted itself into a corner. Dust, help change this delusional old church for the better.
The post above got 4 negative judgies within the hour.

Thank you :o) That says nail-on-head.

LOL, as if anyone would say the RCC has made a full and open confession -- the kind of confession they so "perfectly teach" to others.

LMAO!!!!!!

The truth will set the crazies free.

But first they have to open their minds and realize that Mussolini was just one more of the "gates of Hell."

And the RCC can't let go.

The RCC teaches perfect confessions, but what does it practice?

Let's ask the government of Ireland.

Are you implying that the RCC is NOT the victim here?

The Catholic Church has had problems in every decade since Christ. There was bad Priests, Bishops and laity since day one. They all violated Catholic teachings and sinned.
It will be that way for the next 2,000 yrs too. This is the reality when you're involved in spiritual warfare. Thankfully, the Church is infallible in her teachings on faith and morals so we will always have that unbreakable pillar to guide us.

Jesusí blood overcomes all the darkness of sin.
Have you ever sat down and thought about what you believe?

You believe that a god needed his creation, to kill another one of his creations, so that the god could forgive them.

If that was not bad enough! What did the animals ever do to deserve being killed? They were killed in the flood, even though god never said that they did anything wrong. They are required by your god to be killed, just so that god could forgive man?

Does that make any sense to you?

Move ahead a few years and the animals are just not doing it for god. No matter how many animals are being killed, for god, god just cannot get enough death, so that he can forgive man.

What does he do? Depending on how you believe, he either creates a new "special" being or he splits himself into 3rd and send 1/3 of himself to Earth. To a very small community, on Earth, to be killed, just so god can forgive man. But that's not all. Not only did the jesus have to be tortured and killed, the 99% of the world that was not involved, has to blindly believe that all this happened, or they are damned to Hell!

Sit down, read through it a few times and tell me, this makes prefect sense to you.

Does Anthony think only church going people are generous with their time and money?

"The Bubble boy" needs to get into the real world where everyday good people live and do good deeds everyday.

I think he has told me now maybe 15-20 times that he isn't going to post to many anymore. What a phoney!

When will you ever believe that God is the giver of EVERY THING!!!!

When will you ever believe that God has created EVERY THING!!!!

Ephesians 3:9

9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God,[[[[[who created all things.]]]]]

Even the very AIR that we breath belongs to him.....

Even our children belongs to him.....
