Thank you.

It's just so amazing that the supposed teacher of perfect morals to mankind -- continues to honor in such a blatant and public manner someone who covered up child abuse by over 90 Priests.

I get it. Cardinal Law was a good soldier for the Vatican. But it is painfully clear that the catholic church still does not.

If you really were a minister called by Christ (and this forum proves you are not) you wouldn't talk to another human being like that. God loves her as equally as you. God will judge June. God knows her pain and why she rejects Him. God knows her soul.
You have no excuse to preach your deception. You're no different than an Atheist. You claim to follow the Christ, but you don't preach the same Christianity He did. Is there any teaching you haven't undid?
Seriously, can you go one day without lying about the Catholic faith??
You know that you believe I will burn in hell in a hereafter, while you will be saved.

I suggest that you don't preach at another preacher about holy sermons, when your religion teaches such nonsense and you buy into it.

You Christians don't have a kind word for each other, yet you want to teach Atheists how to be HOLY.

Ridiculous.

Regina, you have falsely accused me and judged me, so do you think that after you have me burned at the stake that the pope will canonize me and make me the patron saint of annulments?

To all the Topix readers/post(ers): I do not want you to think that you are hearing from a bitter woman. On the contrary, I feel that I am very blessed because I serve a God of justice, mercy, and love. Now let me tell you the rest of the story: After the recent sex abuse scandal of the Catholic Church was exposed, my ex-husband and his wife decided to leave the Catholic Church. They are now working to restore their relationships with my (now) adult children. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!

Lol. I don't even need to get into statistics or any kind of data at this point in the game.
You know the truth. I know you know the truth. We showed you and your wife countless data that reveals the subject is no more in the CC than any other organization.
You're using the evil subject of sexual abuse to advance your agenda and bear false witness against the Catholic Church.
Do you still claim to be a follower of Jesus Christ?

You have spent your days calling names castigating us and criticizing others.

You won't hear an Atheist bragging about knowing what occurs in a hereafter.

Yet those in religion never shut up about whose fortune telling is on the mark of TRUTH and whose fortune telling is based on lies.

It's always the one pointing outward at evil that is certain he/she OWNS the one and only truth.

It's been going on since religion began and it won't quit until religion ends ... and that is "unfortunate."

Think of those starving innocent babies, children and adults ... people suffering unbelievable heartache and pain from horrible diseases ... non-human animals that didn't do anything but try to survive by using claw, fang, sharp teeth and venom, while being killed in deaths of agony every second of every day and night ... and then preach your sermon about a loving merciful god.

You people and your suck-holing to an image that you created of a loving god is nauseous, as from my perspective I acknowledge the suffering that occurs in the real world.

There is no mercy from any outside source ... NONE! And that is not bitterness on my part ... it is just a fact that I face head on.

Those in religion fall for varieties of human-created myths.

I face the fact that I don't know the answers to those mysteries, but I do believe that if there is a creator ... it's a mean S.O.B. that doesn't do a thing but watch suffering occur ongoing.

There is no delusion in THAT fact.

A god that could change things for the better and doesn't is worse than useless. FAR WORSE!

And that's why I refuse to believe in the existence of a creator.

I will wait for a better explanation ... and if that doesn't occur, nothing is going to persuade me that a merciful god created a realm where suffering is rampant in all forms of life.

Surely you jest. You don't believe in any other gods but the one that you favor in your own mythical illusion. You create a vacancy of all other images of gods but your own. And then you have the nerve to preach at me that unbelief is a vacancy.

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?

OH please do give us one of your specialty sermons about how the "loving" god is going to reward you with eternal bliss in the hereafter.

It's a sermon that you value ... OH, and please don't forget the part about the loving god sending us evil ones to burn in hell for eternity. That's probably the part of the sermons that REALLY turns you on, and makes you feel especially powerful and IN CONTROL of the situation.

YUCK!

It states in plain language that the god of the old testament, who was later twisted by Catholic theology in the claim that the same god sent Jesus to earth to save only Catholics ... created evil.

Why do you people ignore that scripture in the old testament and keep on blathering about a "merciful" god?

If I were in power I would not hand out rewards to brown-nosers that have the attitude ... "I will love you god because you command me to love you!"

If you use your better judgment you will see that you crawl on your knees begging love from a god that supposedly created EVIL!

Of course you ignored everything presented to you. That INCLUDES teachings on Christianity. You opt instead to form your own religion based on what you see in the Bible. Its not the same as what the Apostles taught, but oh well..

The one-god dogma states emphatically that there IS only one god, and it's the god created by the Jews.

The theology makes it plain that you can't persuade a Jewish god to love Catholics, Protestants and Muslims, when the god was trained by Jews to love ONLY his "chosen few."

If you want to play at theology then I suggest that you play fair, and stop trying to steal the affections of the Jewish god away from the Jews to USE for your own theologies.

Maybe you could create new gods for your mental play-things. One for Catholics ... one for Muslims ... and one for Protestants.

Sarcasm intended.

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!

Yawn...You and your wife are proficient in lying.

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.
