<quoted text>I do not wish to trash your Church. I believe in my heart that this illness in your church has not been sufficiently addressed. Thie does not reflect on your Church's deposit of faith or the Truth is presents.I believe that the real enemy of your Church is whatever is driving this illness.
I base my belief on many many years of working with offenders, victims, families and institutions.To say someone or some institution has a sickness is not to trash it but to try to help it. My heartfelt belief is, yes , the Catholic Curch has this problem of abuse and cover up more than others.
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."

The wickedest cult ever is undoubtedly the RCC. Popes have been corrupt, murderous and obhorrently evil throughout its history. At one time the papacy was known as the pornocracy.
Evil men historically.
Revelation clearly portrays a global (universal) power which rules over the kings of this earth.
No other power than the RCC can claim this. The dark ages 538ad to 1798ad were clearly the spawn of this evil system.
The Jesuits, seen to be lamb-like are a bunch of maniacs determined to wipe out all Protestants whenever and by whatever means they can.
It is clearly the power which has no other like it and which sits in Rome which Revelation depicts.
Only a stubborn Roman Catholic would deny this.
I should say, a stubborn ignorant and stupid Roman Catholic who loves tradition above the Bible and who believes popes have the power to change God's law would deny this.
Well, Im not stubborn!

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.

Antichrist is a CHURCH:
In the Bible a WOMAN symbolizes a CHURCH. See such verses as 2 Corinthians 11:2, Isaiah 54:5-6, Jeremiah 3:14, Ephesians 5:31-33, etc. Christ is represented as the Bridegroom (Matthew 9:14-15, Revelation 19:7). An unfaithful Church commits spiritual adultery (Ezekiel 16:28, 32).
Antichrist is a CORRUPT Church:
Just as a pure woman represents a pure Church, a corrupt woman represents a corrupt Church. The woman in white is Christ’s bride, the true Church. But Revelation 17:1, 15-16 and 19:2 call this second woman a “WHORE” or “HARLOT”, a fallen Church teaching false doctrines.
Antichrist is a LARGE, WORLDWIDE Church:
She sits on “many WATERS,” explained as being many “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Revelation 17:1 and 15. The very word catholic means “universal,” and the Papal Church has the largest, most widespread membership in Christendom.
Antichrist is a RICH Church:
This symbolic wicked woman, this corrupt Church is a rich one with gorgeous display. Revelation 17:4 says she’s “decked with GOLD and PRECIOUS STONES and PEARLS, having a GOLDEN cup in her hand.”
Which Church would you say is the richest in the world all the while professing poverty?
The RCC perhaps?
I wish you the best of luck as you look Jesus Christ in the eye one day. May He have mercy on your soul.

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.

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.

Is that nice?..no.. what is very nice know our body is shape as cylinder..as well you can be kucica selica..kucica=house or building as =box..yes Mr or Mrs Boxerica..

as alive we move around as resting place box as ever lasting for body not move in shape of box any box...

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.
