So you think we should do away with defense attorneys, juries, trials, judges...just scrap the whole judicial system as soon as a priest is accused.
I'll tell you what I would support...if any priest is found guilty of abuse or any bishop of covering for them, after doing time and being laitized, they should be held liable for all of the costs associated with the trial, defense, prosecution, pay full resititution to the victims, work off their civil judgements in soup lines, cleaning hospitals, etc. How 'bout that?

....So you think we should do away with defense attorneys, juries, trials, judges...just scrap the whole judicial system as soon as a priest is accused.

Michael says.....NO! Let them pay for their own defense teams. The clergy receive salarys, benefits, stipends, pensions, room and board, they don't have a wife or children to support, its all for themselves.

..... They are not children, they should pay their own way just like you and I do. Why does the church look after the needs of priests like they are helpless children everytime they fall down?

CONTROL! that is the answer.

It amazes me how "bitter and angry" of a "condemning and hostile" life that you lead, when it comes to "persistently" attacking the Catholic Church. The fact is Michael, I don't hate (anyone), not you, confrinting, Orville, justachristian, jethro or any other person who spreads their anti-catholic exaggerated distortion, lies and deceit. We, as Catholics will "leave the hate" to "you and those Protestants, agnostics or atheists, who in their own frustration, are living lives of the "bondage" of wrath and extreme anger!!

No apology necessary.

Everyone on this forum has an opinion, but you will quickly learn that the right wing, apologist, ultra conservative catholics on this forum believe God loves them more than everyone else.

Stick around you will see them in action.

as i expected,hjo,regina,clay and anthony did not answer my question,if one of their children was molested by a priest,would they still be here defending the catholic church like they are? WHY NO ANSWER PEOPLE!?
They are afraid to answer. Why? Because catholics cannot seperate God, from their church and clergy. Its a bundle. If you blame a priest for something, you are blaming God. If you say something negative about their church, you hate God.

See how the church controls their very lives?

If there is an all loving God and he is keeping score of good/bad deeds, we have very little to worry about. Until I see evidence of God, I will just keep living my life the way I always have.

Why do you hold onto, and keep copying rewritten old commentaries that perpetuate such inaccuracies?
Try liberating your mind with the Truth....
All the Catholics on here have rehashed this with you....And you rely on commentaries within commentaires written by biased sources....Its absurd to read them....
Try the freedom of Christ's mind to engage your own mind in the Truth.
How this
John was born in Bethsaida on the Sea of Galilee.the son of Zebedee (Matthew 4:21) and Salome, who was apparently the sister of Mary, Jesus' mother. Compare the following two verses:



Mark 15:40 - There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;

John 19:25 - Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.



If Mary and Salome were sisters, John the Apostle and Jesus were first cousins. This would make him related to John the Baptist whose mother was Mary's cousin Elisabeth, see the story in Luke 1.

John was also the brother of James the Greater. Together they were often called after their father "the sons of Zebedee" and received from Christ the honorable title of Boanerges, i.e. "sons of thunder" (Mark 3:17).

Any pedophile priest or bishop, has, is or either will be (and should be) prosecuted and jailed (if found guilty) for their actions. Like I said before, the 2% of sexual preditors, who -by their actions, have discredited the Catholic faith and the teachings of the Church---"do not represent" the TRUTH of Doctrine that the Church teaches regarding sin. I don't base my Catholic faith on the ACTIONS of a few "fallen away priests". I base my Catholic faith on the TRUTH of the Catholic Church teaching the TRUTH!! AGAIN--you can do what you want! It's your choice, "atheists, agnostic or whatever you are!!-----And furthermore--- NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY--- Michael, in your beligerence and hostility against the Catholic Church, it is not (in any way) going to change the faith and commitment to Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church--(of any Catholic here on this forum or any of the 1.168 Billion Catholics around the world.

Just like the 2% of the pedophile priests-- DO NOT represent the TRUE teachings of the Church, NEITHER do your, Catholic "liberals protestors who are nothing more than a few (on-their-way out) emancipated so-called Catholics--NEITHER do they represent the TRUE teachings of the Catholic Church.

They are UNBELIEVABLE and DOUBLE BUSTED ex-Catholics who need to go down the street and join the nearest Protestant Church that will tell them "exactly what they want hear"!!! about Abortion, Gay Marriage, emnbroyonic stem cell research, euthenasia, women ministers, homosexual 'political correctness and God only knows whats next "whichever way the next political (wind blows)

And it goes on and on and on and on.......

LOS ANGELES (AP)— Cardinal Roger Mahony, who retired with a tainted career after dodging criminal charges over how he handled pedophile priests, was stripped of his archdiocese duties in an unprecedented move by his successor, who described the actions by abusive priests described in the files as evil.

It wasn't clear whether the Vatican supported Archbishop Jose Gomez's decision to publicly criticize a fellow priest and colleague. The announcement was seen as long overdue by victims and surprising to church experts who said it was unusual for an archbishop to take action against a higher up.

The move came as the church was legally forced to release thousands of confidential files on pedophile priests — and two weeks after other long-secret priest personnel records showed Mahony worked with top aides to protect the church from the engulfing scandal.

One of those aides, then-Monsignor Thomas Curry stepped down Thursday as auxiliary bishop in the Los Angeles archdiocese's Santa Barbara region. Gomez said Mahony, 76, would no longer have administrative or public duties in the diocese. It didn't appear that Gomez's actions would affect Mahony's position in Rome, where he can remain for another four years on a counsel that selects the Pope.

"I find these files to be brutal and painful reading," Gomez said in a statement, referring to 12,000 pages of files the church posted online Thursday night just hours after a judge's order. "The behavior described in these files is terribly sad and evil. There is no excuse, no explaining away what happened to these children."

And on and on...

IRELAND
Irish Times

JOANNE HUNT

Legal proceedings have begun against an Irish missionary priest alleged to have abused an African student at a Spiritan-run school in Sierra Leone.

Elvis Kuteh alleges the priest abused him in the late 1970s when he was a pupil of a school run by the Holy Ghost Fathers, now the Spiritans.

Mr Kuteh, who is in his 40s, now lives in the UK. His solicitor, Michael E Hanahoe and Co, has 12 months in which to serve the summons on the defendant.

If the case proceeds, this will be the first time an African will have abuse allegations against an Irish missionary priest heard in Ireland.

Abuse campaigner Mark Vincent Healy, who is supporting Mr Kuteh’s case, said the case was being brought under the Brussels Convention.

robert has joined probably 5 different types of religious organizations in the last 10 years or so.

and probably soon, robert f will show the world how much he loves the catholic church and its truths by participating in self immolation, which would be comparable to the devotion that old iggie showed when he wanted to be killed, even tho he was afraid of those leopards. He wanted to die but he was afraid to be killed. go figure!

Let me get this straight: Saint Ignatius, Disciple of the Apostle John, author of some very early Christian teachings, was arrested for being linked to the Apostles.(He was ordained a Bishop by John)
While en route to his execution, he penned a series of important writings, that the church still has to this day... One of them, he wrote asking his followers to not intervene as he went to the beasts, because he understood the cause he was dying for!

Fast forward to the 20th century. A man named Preston says his grandpa died; went to Heaven and spoke verbally to Jesus and the Apostles. Then, his grandpa came back to Earth to tell Preston that God had a big plan for him. He is to preach the New Testament. Because, since it wasn't available til the 15th century, people are confused to what Christ really wanted.
But that's not the funny part...

The funny part is: Preston calls Saint Ignatius a kook!!!
