Your post reminded me of a video a friend here on Topix sent me. It's long but I think it's worth watching. It isn't about the RCC and is actually explaining how much of the Jewish Faith is taught and how it developed over the centuries, the similarities I saw to the RCC, Protestants and the Orthodox Jews is astonishing.
So much of what many take for granted as "Gospel" didn't actually come from the Gospels. Note the part where he discusses eating the meat of the kid boiled in the milk of the mother and how that became a major cornerstone of the faith.
The Hebrew Yeshua vs. the Greek Jesus

It's about apostolic teachings and how they developed.

Okay folks. Top all you that erroneously believe that Peter is the one upon whom Christ built His church. Peter is NOT the head of Christ's church but rather CHRIST IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH. Christ is the CHIEF CORNERSTONE.

http://www.gotquestions.org/Jesus-Christ-corn...

The ROCK upon whom the church was built.

If Peter is the rock then what is Christ? To say that Peter is the rock upon whom the church was built is yet another attempt by the RCC to usurp the position of Christ.

Yes I know you are a hypocrite you prove it all the time. The church did not ban the bible in other languages. The church did not ban it to laity. The Vatican did not even have the churches send reports on abuse until 2002 when Cardinal Ratzinger asked that it be done. Until that time the cases were handled by the individual diocese. I think it fair to say no one really understood the scope of the problem. I think it fair to say that many Protestants still dont in their churches and do nothing. It is also a fact that many were sent to counseling and approved by Psychologists to re-enter. It is also a fact that the majority of those in the secular courts convicted were sent to counseling not prison and re-entered and that of course has proven to be a dismal failure. Many countries still have no formal way of addressing it. Churches and institutitions dealt with it as an internal matter and nobody really knew how to handle it. Many people today when supervisors on trial say he said he would never do it again and I believed him. The slap on the hand and quietly moving teachers is prevalent in America today and around the world. What everyone needs to do is wake up and realize that predators are predators and they go where youth are and yes they are married, they are preachers, rabbis, teachers, youth group organizers and they are often highly respected people whom you would never suspect. They are in trusted positions and take advantage of their authority. Its not a teaching, its not condoned nor promoted but then again there were psychologists saying it was not harmful (kinsey) in the 60s and certain cultures are just fine with it. The Catholic church has done alot arguably more than anyone else. The reason is irrelevant. Praise has been given to the Protestants who realize their own problems and no they dont say you have more, because there is no evidence to support that. They dont say we did more, are doing more, or you could have done it right. They dont condone singling out the Catholic church, or eliminating statutes of limitations to prosecute dead people or putting priests not convicted just accused on predator list notifications. You are a vile person Rose and to use abuse to attack the church shows you have no idea of what being a Christian is or true concern for children. If you were concerned about children then you would stop attacking and ignoring the slander and that it is not being addressed. Its more important to say you you you could have done better. If we had the resources we would have done. blah blah blah. If we were only saved and so wonderful like you. You make me vomit.

Would a member of the RCC dare to chastize or rebuke the Pope given that Catholics claim that the Pope is the head of the Church that Christ started? I highly doubt it for that would be tantamount to rebuking Christ if the Pope is as many misled believes, is the head of Christ's church.

Well did not Paul rebuke Peter for being a hypocrit?

Now why would Paul rebuke "Christ's Vicar" if the gates of hell was supposed to not be able to prevail against the Church?

Murrill Boitnott (former senior pastor of Wayside Baptist Church in Miami and currently the president of Macedonian Call Ministries): Even after staff minister Keith Geren admitted to sexually abusing 10 teen boys, pastor Boitnott couldn’t bring himself to recommend that Geren be fired or even that he have no further contact with church youth. Later, it came out that Geren had also abused boys during his prior stint at First Baptist Church of Lakeland where Boitnott was also working at the time.
They don't like to admit that their own organized religions are also hiding molesters.

Admit that your chances of spending eternity in hell is just as great as those at whom you point fingers.

If the god exists, he's an adulterer. He left the Jews high and dry with their old testament and jumped on the bandwagon with Christian idolizers of the new testament. He's promiscuous as "hell."

The Protestant Billy Graham (Within the theology) either lied when he claimed that only Christians could be saved ... or he's lying now when he claims that people don't have to be Christian to be saved.

Which do you believe is his lie???

There is no need to be nasty . But they ..the priests and their bosses are most certainly responsible fir hurting the children and the priests.

The teachers..the coaches..the ministers ..All equally guilty And I've said that Several Times

sorry you think.it's personal. It's not.
Have said MANY TIMES THE NUNS AND PRIESTS I KNEE WERE GOod people

You mean no one outside each diocese of The Church had any idea there were any priests abusing children.

I can understand THat in another institution .

But your Pope is at your head .recent on northerners and the VATICAN KNEW NOTHING???? THESE men went yo counselling. fOR A CRIME and NO ONE UP HIGH KNEW IT ..wasn't keeping it a secret then aliens Sin..Hiding things from His Holiness that could hurt the Church ???

I know it's a difficult program ..the Catholic school I went yo never addressed sex at ALL.
Who ever heard of this ..I get that ..But bishops are educated far beyond what we are. If you want to hide a din such bad this HIDE IT..away from more temptation to sin

Would it not Have made sense in a religious institution when one person came forth describing something they had no words for ...And then others ..to at least segregate these priests...Not shuffle them yo other children

It's the lack of common sense that even lay people do not understand .
I may not have been practicing but I venerated the Church.

When I first heard of this I thought it was s lie ...NOT THE PEOPLE PEOPLE I LOOKED UP TO .

And when it came out they got moved to other parishes ..My very first thought ..why did THeY not put. Them in s monastery .

You can call.me names ..You can list other criminals

You cannot face the Truth that at the very least the Church was complicit in hiding crimes..And even...according to you...hiding them from the Seatbif your Church.

Again. What bugs me US the foolisHness ..on top of letting thrombosis to hurt themselves and the children

You are more. Worried about words than those hurt.

And about Thomas More persecution and bibles..it depends on whose history you believe

I did not make any of that up

Yet you blame me .

" But his secret hobby was assembling what was termed his "Victims List," 100 email addresses of high school and college students across the country. According to the federal prosecutor in the case, Alexander deliberately targeted vulnerable young women, many of whom were at college and away from home for the first time."

"In one case, he told the girl if she didn't go along with him with sex talk by telephone and computer, he would digitally alter a photograph of her face, paste it on a nude body, and post it on the Internet to ruin her reputation."
