Funny stuff! The site is run by a baptist who is apparently biased and bigoted toward her church. As we have all stated many times and as the Pope stated the evil must be purged from our midst. Obssessions from those in here who paint this is a Catholic issue in denial it even exists elsehwere or a problem is patently obvious to anyone who has bothered to read. Clearly you cannot read or chose to ignore the obsessive posts of your comrades. It is your choice. Self! lol I have stated many times that I commend the Protestant churches that have acknowledge their failures and problems and have even commended and emulated the reforms of the church. However the response is to a Southern Baptist who is painting a picture while proclaiming his house withour problem.<quoted text>
Too show both sides of the issues - wouldn't it benefit you (and others) to also post the Catholic priests who are in jail or pending a parole hearing - in order to show that the media attention is balanced?
Right now, you are being biased and showing bigotry toward the Protestant group, when in fact, it only looks like deflecting from the point being made - in accordance with objecting to the title.
Hmmm.....I seem to can't find any, can you help me out?
If you have a desire to protect children then the way to do that is to not focus on an organization. How many Protestant churches have paid for independent or Govt studies that have focused on their group? Does the media Nationally televise every disocvery in a local protestant church? How about what I pointed out in the schools. OOPS you brushed right over that. Catholics here nor I are justifying abuse nor are we trying to make it my church has less than yours. That is the childish, ignorant and bigoted approach that is coming from your side. We have acknowledged a problem. We have done much to change. However when denial that it even exists elsewhere is the common denominator that is something you need to wake up to. You cannot even begin to stop a problem or explore ways to prevent it and implement a universal system to deal with it until you do. Painting the Catholic Church as a uniquely peverted insitution is in fact finger pointing.
Now if everytime the media starts the story and they want to start off with comparing to New Agers or Baptists then there would be no bias right? Laws specifically changed or altered to go after one Institution alone is balanced and unbiased? Laws that state a person who accused whether deemed credible or not with no prosecution required to notify area residents, but ONLY for a Catholic priest. How is that not biased? It is indeed. I am told that during the Vietnam war they listed the killed on tv and radio every day to keep it present in peoples minds. Now if every time an accusation is made it was national news then the problem shines through. St Paul appealed to Ceasar. Why? Because he knew he wasnt going to get any kind of fair hearing. If you want to participate in a witch hunt by all means continue. If you have concern about children then say we can all do more.
