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.

It's true that most any bozo can get a license to start a new Protestant church, and in turn become their own hierarchy.

Who do children report molestation to when they are taught not to go to the law, but to depend on the ones in the church to figure it out?

It's comparable to going to the fox that kills the chickens to find out how to get the fox to stop killing the chickens.

It is in every walk of life June. Homes, schools, boy scot, girl guides, sports, the biggest complaints are against fathers, brothers, cousins, family friends .
I guess why it is so disturbing to hear that a priest or pastor does it is because they are suppose to be represent God.
So once again God gets blamed for the abuse, for the actions of ungodly men.

I don't belittle others in the pretense that a god called me to his service.

I do blame people who use words from supposed holy books to claim that they know how others should behave, when it's plain that their own behavior is no better than the behavior of the ones at which they preach.

I don't blame a god for the abuse. That's an excuse. I also don't praise a god for being merciful, as that also is an excuse.

I don't believe that a creator had any part in a plan so obnoxious as what occurs on earth ... so for me it's a safe bet to believe there's a better explanation of which humans can't by flighty imagination control.

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.

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.

The problem that Pope Francis is aware of is that the child sex-abuse scandal was swept under the rug and covered up by at least two ex-Pope and the College of Cardinals for decades.

Church first, victims second.

The problem is this attitude and action tells us with absolute certainty that no god is leading this church.

It has once again proven itself to be no better than the churches it claims are not.

That's the sticky part, isn't in Fran?

We agree that God defines marriage, but are you saying the Church can change that definition at any time? It seems so.
You surely see the absurdity! How can you say that 50-60,000 Catholic couples per year didn't understand the oath -- often after 10 or 20 years?
Or maybe they had their fingers crossed?
OK, after a year or two at most. But after 20 years and a handful of children? Surely you can't be serious.
No matter how absurd, you will maintain the delusion.
The best part is I'll bet there has been no official change in church policy. My guess is even the church finds this situation embarrassing. But you are caught defending it. Funny how delusions can be so confusing.
Um, no, I don't think they did understand the oath. Those little parts of the vows like "until death do us part" are obviously not taken seriously.

Statistically divorce is miniscule among weekly mass goers compared to so-called Catholics who never go or only occasionally.

Again, if we can define marriage, why can't we define what's not marriage?

What about the monsters who covered it up for so long?

Cardinal Law for example. What makes anyone believe God wants Cardinal Law to be honored so much by "his" church?

Then what message are you trying to convey to others , by posting all the negativity against God June.
Which are not your own words but what other people have written, are you not letting someone else influences your opinion.
If you truly believe in your heart there is no God, then so be it.
I have had a great relationship on here with many no believers, They believe what they do for a reason, I am not going to change them, or what they believe, Jethro is a great guy and a gentlemen I might add.
If you want to be friends speak from your heart let your own thoughts and feelings come through not some else's, in other words be true to yourself.
People are going to get a big surprised, there are many people who call themselves Christians June, but are they really.
Many false prophets and doctrine out there, June all the stuff happening in this world is not God's idea.
satan is the god of this world , love begets love, hate begets hate.

Ollie says that while there is truth in what you write, you cannot point fingers at Pope Francis. He is no more to blame for what went on in the past then your father or grandfather is for causing prolonging WWII while not supporting it.

GOD is leading the Holy Roman Catholic Church. Its evident in most of the 1.3 billion members of the Faithful.

Never has so many of the whole population of the poor world depended on so few for so long.

Or in the case of my brothers wedding (Evangelical and Jehovah Witness) he was drunk and his groomsmen were stumbling around too. The Judge thought it was funny.
It was a 'hook up' between two people. Not a Holy Sacrament. The Catholic Church won't recognize that as a valid marriage. Its no wonder the Protestant world is confused when it comes to same sex marriage.
I remember my wedding. The Church said, if they detect any alcohol prior to the Wedding Mass, they'll cancel it.
The priest officiating my daughter's and my son's wedding said the same thing. They were both at least 90 minutes long. The last protestant wedding I was at took 15 minutes.
