Then you are not a died in the wool Catholic. You know full well that the basic Catholic teaching is to love your neighbor ... but only if they belong to the Catholic church. If they don't you try to persuade them ... and if that doesn't work ... you torture them ... and if that work ... you finish the job by burning them at the stake ... as THAT my friends ... is the will of GOD on HIGH!

Other Christian movements have suffered similar scandals, but Pentecostalism seems particularly rife with them. Insiders know some of the reasons. Deeply embedded within the Pentecostal movementís ethos is a cult of personality; charismatic leaders are put on pedestals above accountability and are often virtually worshiped by many of their followers.

Too few courses in basic ethics are required in Pentecostal colleges (perhaps because many Pentecostals, especially older ones, assume that being Spirit-filled guarantees right behavior), and too many pastors handle the churchesí money and travel alone without having to account for their whereabouts or activities. Itís the movementís own dirty little secret: sexual promiscuity and financial misconduct are rampant within its ranks, and little is done about this unless a scandal becomes public.

Several Pentecostal denominations have instituted policies to handle cases of pastoral moral turpitude and financial misconduct, but they have found those policies hard to enforce. At least one Pentecostal denomination has a policy that forbids investigation of charges that are more than five years old. One can only wonder why the leaders decided on that limit.

There is no body that regulates independent churches and ministers, but Pentecostal leaders could work harder to expose their colleagues who transgress and to warn their flocks (and others) against them. Far too much nervousness about powerful television and radio preachers infects well-intentioned and ethically sensitive Pentecostal leaders. Itís time for the movement to own up to its sometimes sleazy history and go the extra mile in cleaning house in the cases of ministers and evangelists who are less than honest and chaste. It should not be left to publications like Christianity Today and Charisma to reveal scandals involving Pentecostal ministers, evangelists and denominational executives.

Still another aspect of Pentecostalismís dark side is its tendency to condone dishonesty on the part of influential and popular evangelists and ministers. http://www.religion-online.org/showarticle.as...

It wouldn't matter how many gods people created in their own images, most people are greedy for more.

As much as Christians claim to believe in one god, the fact of the "matter" is that there are approximately 38,000 divisive denominations of Christianity, all claiming to know the righteous path to "heaven."

That bespeaks of the greed of humans wanting their own way.

When private homes are rife with child sexual molestation, it bespeaks of the idea that cover-ups are common place all throughout society.

It is my guess that all members of hierarchies concerning religion cover up what they don't want putting blemishes on their "holy" establishments.

The Catholic hierarchy took the brunt of scandal ... but they are just one among many religious establishments that covered for their preachers who molested.

Personal confessions from those who have been molested in other places of worship indicates that is so.

Luk_4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Your Pope prays for those gone astray such as you have dearest.

May the Lord accept the sacrefice at your hands for the praise and glory of His name, for our good , and for the good of all His Holy Church.

The Old Testament is rather outdated and Your Pope understands that it was created by the wise men of the early ages as a source to be the law for man and to give him some of the answers that he was searching for.

In these early times, very few men were considered wise and it was left to them to come up with the best reasonings of how man came to be and the lives of those who followed...hence Adam and Eve and the rest throughout the ages. The laws, or Ten Commandments' were great laws and kept most people in check. One can't imagine what thee world would have been like without the laws based on what the world was like with the laws.

After Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD was born, and lived, and died on the Cross, and arose from the dead...things changed. These happenings formed the New Testament in which Christ's teachings are followed today in the Holy Roman Catholic Church.

The Holy Roman Catholic Church is the ONE True Church. All other Christian denominations are deviations of the Catholic Church and instituted to self-serve their own interests. The Church of England is a very good example.....started up by King Henry VIII because he was refused to be divorced by the Catholic Church to marry another woman which infuriated him so much that he 'broke' with the church, became excommunicated and in the end suffered an agnozing death in mental anguish knowing and believing that he was going to hell.

We believe in GOD, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

Sexual Abuse of Minors in Protestant Churches

The mainstream media has all but ignored the recent Associated Press report that the three major insurance companies for Protestant Churches in America say they typically receive 260 reports each year of minors being sexually abused by Protestant clergy, staff, or other church-related relationships.

In light of the sex abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic Church beginning five years ago, religious and victimsí rights organizations have been seeking this type of data for years. It has been hard to come by since Protestant Churches are more de-centralized than the Catholic Church.

Protestant Clergy Abuse Equals or Exceeds Catholic Clergy Abuse

While the report about abuse in Protestant churches doesnít absolve guilty Catholic priests or those who enabled them, said Father Jonathan Morris, it offers a more complete picture.ďThe problem of sexual abuse has no denominational boundaries,Ē he wrote.

Once Catholics started complaining about their sexual abuse as children ... Protestants also started to feel justified in reporting their childhood molestations.

Heavy abuse went on in the Jehovah's Witness denominations, as probably occurred in all others.

Your Pope suggests that you should 'guess' again.

Pertinent to the monsters within the Holy Roman Catholic Church that carried out sexual abuse on children, Your Pope says that what they did was terrible and that they will be judged for it if not here on earth, then for sure once they die.

Mind you, that over the 2000 years that have followed Our Lord Jesus Christ, hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of Popes, Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, Monks, Brothers, Sisters, Laypeople have given their kindness, care, compassion, monies, time, medicines, attention, teachings, comfort to the poor, sick, destitute, the blind and the insane. For you to take a small minority of this group and blatantly 'smear' the whole with your hateful references only goes to show the kind of mentality that there is in this world. Do you teach your children in like-fashion? Because if you do, you are on the road to perdition.

Predominately, child sexual abuse takes place within the family but you should spend some of your time studying what is going on in the world of sports, schooling, universities, and especially entertainment. Youths are being 'bought' from parents by drug addicts and 'sold' to evil men.

Save us, Savior of the world for by your Cross and Resurrection, you have set us free.

The Protestants have a lot of fun pointing fingers at the Catholic church ... but when it's plain that the cover-ups in Protestant churches were right under their "holy noses" ... it makes them defensive and very disturbed.

I suggest you load your self up with all the other mythical gods and insist that they are real and that they hold to the highest value as does yours ... and then you will have no vacancy of belief in ALL human created gods.
How does that grab you?
Why don't you stop playing the blame game. For every negative story from people like you; there are stories from people who have had life changing experiences that say just the opposite.
When it rains it rains on the righteous as well as the unrighteous.
Bad things happen to good and bad alike its called life.
God loves us all He died for everyone, so who is God to punish for doing bad things to other people.
Have you done everything right in your life, have you cursed and hurt some one??
Has God punished you, did He come down with a big fly swatter and hit you for doing so??
You mouth is a cesspool of negativity towards God.
Yet He still loves you and would forgive you just like He has me.
You can go on blaming God for all the bad crap, He has big shoulders.
He understands our fear cause by sin in our life; it makes us say and doing silly things all the time.
Your no exception, you are very transparent June; God doesn't control you , He won't interfere in your life or anyone else's unless we ask funny He is a gentleman like that.

Public bias: The public may view sexual abuse by priests very differently from similar crimes by Protestant clergy. The Roman Catholic Church is generally seen as a monolithic organization with a clearly defined rigid hierarchy. Thus a case of abuse becomes a "Roman Catholic scandal" rather than a local parish problem. A similar molestation in a Protestant church would probably be viewed as a local problem isolated to a single congregation, because of the decentralized nature of most Protestant churches.
