Your heartfelt beliefs are not facts. We acknowledged it, we have paid heavily for it. We have worked on it and still are. What you are cultivating is hate. Just read seres posts and the ones posted by the Protestants who cheer you on when you attack the church.
I am still going with the Orthodox statement I posted that you have no right to make claims like you do. The initiatives have been extensive and the church is global in nature. I would suggest you focus on the sickness in your institution rather than grandstanding with heartfelt beliefs rather than facts.
All churches, schools, insitutions need guidelines, practices and education and universal policies to deal with these issues. The best way to deal with offendors is something noone has an answer to. 3 month sentences are no answer.
Seminarians are now administered tests before being allowed, reporting policies, etc. have been implemented, training, laity councils to investigate, the involvement of civil authorities. We posted several times the numerous things the church has done and continues to do. The results of those efforts have already shown very positive results. I would like to see any institution that has done as much as the church.
To quote Pope Benedict, "This evil must be purged from our midst."
To battle back and forth on the sudject of abuse and further is useless.The trueth is out there for all to see.It matters not with whether your right or I am.I refuse to post on this subject anymore.It is a waste of time.

The first thing an institution in the spotlight does is exactly the things you mentioned.
1. make many speeches condemning the abuse
2 list all the new training provided to members (clergy)
3. list the preventative measures taught the laymen
4 new mission statements and policies

I have seen this many times. When you start seeing top brass being escorted away in cuffs as a result of the institution itself assuming responsibility now we are talking.When the books are open now we can know the extent of the problem and extent of the progress. I have been doing this a very long time.

I can certainly see a whacked out radical fundie when I see one!
You should be more concerned with what will happen to you for adding to Johns Prophecy.
"I warn everyone who hears the words of the Prophecy of this book. If any one adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book"
Rev 22:18
Tiger Lily says John was prophesying the Catholic Church. John does not say that! In fact, no one ever thought of such an absurdity until a couple hundred yrs ago.
I'd say you're about as brave as can be; amazingly bold to thumb your nose at the Apostle John's direct warning.
This just shows the blindfolds you have on. I did not add to scripture. John had to write in symbolic language or the pagan church of the day also now known as the RCC would have done more than exile him.
I have no fear of repeating what other well known and brave men have stated.

That would be great, because to date you haven't contributed anything intelligent on it. Yes it is useless and its too bad you cant see it. You do waste time as you prefer to be an ignoramous and slander with hate. We didnt bring it up in a self righteous tirade of emotion. I am sorry you can't join with the Orthodox who seek common ground and work together as your Patriarchs have encouraged. Even if our churches united there would always be those who would reject that and hold to their own beliefs and thus would be in schism with your personal truth.

I see so can you list all those organizations that have done this? Just wondering how many other churches publish their data and have done extensive investigations with independent firms.

As I said I dont care if its the Pope, Cardinal, Bishop, Priest Patriarch or whomever. If they actually committed abuse then that darkness will come to light. That is part of what the policies are intended to do. Encourage people to come forward and the darkness will have light shined upon it. Allegations however are not always true. It is unfortunate that false charges make way for doubt for the truly guilty.

You are right. Your Church corrected the problem. In fact your Church is at the forefront of how to deal with sexual abuse in the church. All other churches should follow your church's example. Perhaps the Orthodox can adopt your preventive policies when we all join together under your Pope who had been head of the Church since its beginning. Godspeed.

Your Pope expresses great joy on this Palm Sunday as Your Pope celebrates mass in Vatican Square with ALL the Faithful in Christ.

To the hundreds of millions of you wonderful endearing and kind-loving peoples of the world, may your hearts be always filled with the Holy Spirit.

As Your Pope prepares for the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ this coming Good Friday and His subsequent Resurrection from the dead, it is in His great Name that Your Pope prays for you one and ALL.

May the Peace and Joy and Blessings of Our Lord Jesus Christ be upon you and your families, now and forever. Amen.

Your Pope

Actually some Orthodox and Protestants have looked to the church and implemented policies that have proven to be effective. However your arrogant side is showing again. I said it is being worked on, I didnt say it was over. I said no matter what we do some will sneak by and sins will be committed. I have asked who has done more or is doing more? I dont think you can ever do enough to prevent these issues, but its clearly not being acknowledged by many institutions.

There has been a drastic reduction in accusations and many of the current cases go back 30 years. Studies are being done in other countries and it will be painful, but it needs to be done and it is. That doesnt mean its more prevalent, it means that something is being done. I know the Orthodox have had an ecumenical council to address it right? You streamlined universal policies right? You publish everything quarterly like the church does right? I am pleased with the Orthodox churches who have taken in an interest in working together rather than condemning as you do. However if that helps you sleep at night then by all means fight the good fight.

'Breaking Bread'(acts 20:7) is the Holy Mass. Sunday. This is what was taught. You guys showed up 1800 yrs later and undid it.

Only to gnostics. To everyone else breaking bread is a meal. The disciples were having a meal Saturday evening before a long journey Sunday.
