I'm sorry I posted that link. I regretted doing it immediately afterwards.
The author of the most comprehensive study ever done on sexual abuse reveals that it is no more prevalent in the Catholic Church than in other religious settings. It's much less than in Western society as a whole and in many if not all protestant groups. I think the Orthodox Churches probably have less abuse than the Catholic Church as a percentage, however, there are societal pressures in the West that aren't present in the East, and I also think most of your bishops were/are less "liberal" in the area of discipline. That is changing very rapidly in the West. There are no more "second chances" with abuse.
Hey cool with me.It is very difficult to get an accurate study of any institutions.With any Church it would be magnified, just because the nature of what a Church is.You and I can have our own ideas of where things stand with the churches. Nothing wrong with that.Anthony Catholicism is a treasure. Its just some of the posts on the board frpm certain Catholics that irk me.

I agree. Why is it you only show your disgust over the Catholic sins?
**********

Maybe it is because the CC's loudly deny their sins. I understand that the U.N. is presently getting into that investigation.

The evangelicals loudly PROTEST offenders in their groups.(J. Bakker and J. Swaggart, for instance.)

Jack is a beautiful bird; green with yellow on his head and cheeks. His wings have a touch of yellow, and one large feather on each side that is red and dark blue.

He talks a bit, is prettier than the African Grey, but not quite as smart. He knows several words and does the wolf-whistle.

Our son has an African Grey that is amazing. We called it 'he' for three years, till it laid an egg. She 'thinks' for herself. When I first saw her, she refused to make a sound for me (they don't like strangers), but as I left the room, she said, "See ya later!"

Maybe that is why David said:

Psa 95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful NOISE to the rock of our salvation.
Psa 95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful NOISE unto him with psalms.

PERSONally I have no hatred for the Church at all.
Thing is,that Catholics seem frontrunner are second class Christians if that .
And the points,I try to make a 're about the past history ..the CHURCH AS RUN BY MEN who were certainly nit even acting Christian or allowing Monarchs. Etc Tomlinson God's name .
The Reformation was not done by perfect people but as a response to these things
My chief belief in talking this is that GOD HAS USED BITH CATHOLICS AND PROTESTANTS. To spread His word .
But you guys don't see that and call our bible a wrong.
THEY SAY.THE SAME THING ...about JESUS...why on earth.are we fighting
Rose, is there a reason why you're ignoring my posts?

Well, I'll keep trying.....

There are many differences between Protestants and Catholics and between our bibles. For one thing, Protestants removed books and NOT for the reasons you specify. For another, you believe in private interpretation and as a result have changed the meaning of many Christian doctrines.

While it's nice to acknowledge our similarities, protestantism has changed the Christian faith and no Pope has accepted those changes, which is something else you seem to repeat over and over. It's simply not true. That is not what ecumenism is about.

At any rate, I certainly hope no one has been bearing false witness about me to you. In spite of our differences, I didn't think you would listen to that kind of talk. Please let me know if you would like those links I mentioned several times.

I know and I've called her out on it before. Regina is the biggest hypocrite on here. I will find a post where she is cussing and I will expose her for the hypocrite she really is.

This is her post from today to me: You just can't seem to stop the insults, can you?
I haven't cussed at you or anyone else, but thank you for proving me right!

**And you're right, got back to 2011 and see her insult after insult after insult.

Damn! I really did get under your skin. I had no idea.

Ooops, did I just curse at you? And you still can't post here without resorting to name calling. You do it every single time. I do not. So sorry for pointing that out, charles.

As I said before, your remarks speak more to you than to me.

Have fun you two. Don't forget, I'm not the only one who sees you.

I'M sure you came to that conclusion absent any hate but it still comes across as a slam. Is your conclusion based on investigation from Catholic sources free of Protestant distortions? Do you go to Democrats for definitions on Republicans? The Catholic church has a central location. Rome. What is the central location for Protestants? Is your church the only true church and other churches who have points of contention in various degrees wrong? Why so many sects? Is that Biblical? Female Ministers? Is that Biblical?

You are the one that claimed to me that YOU had proof of calling me when Hermi was in the hospital.So I didn't feel the need to ask the phone company for my phone records since you confessed to the proof...You know what Marie,Im NOT afraid of proving anything to you.Yes I have dished out a lot of insults in the past but not the Personal attacks that YOU are so famous for.You need to stop the name calling and the PERSONAL ATTACKS on peoples character..

Pray to the departed ...

Is that not the same thing the Mormons do?

Please define what you mean by..

"the saints who are alive in heaven ."

The Bible does not say that they are bodily alive...

it says ...

Romans 8:23

(DRB) And not only it, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit:

even we ourselves groan within ourselves,==> waiting for the adoption of the sons of God, the redemption of our body.

(Geneva) And not onely the creature, but we also which haue the first fruites of the Spirit,

euen we doe sigh in our selues,==>waiting for the adoption, euen the redemption of our body.

(KJV) And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,

even we ourselves groan within ourselves,-->waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Are you saying they have already experienced the adoption, to wit, the redemption of their bodies.

If you are...then you are in error...
