The Christian ought to be so minded as becomes his heavenly calling, and his life and conversation ought to be worthy of the Gospel of Christ.
He ought not to speak evil; to do violence; to fight; to avenge himself; to return evil for evil; to be angry.
The Christian ought to be patient, whatever he have to suffer, and to convict the wrong-doer in season, not with the desire of his own vindication, but of his brother's reformation, according to the commandment of the Lord.
The Christian ought not to say anything behind his brother's back with the object of calumniating him, for this is slander, even if what is said is true.
He ought to turn away from the brother who speaks evil against him.
The Christian ought not to seek for honor or claim precedence. Every one ought to put all others before himself.
He who shows another to be wrong ought to do so with all tenderness, in the fear of God, and with the object of converting the sinner.
Every one ought, as far as he is able, to conciliate one who has ground of complaint against him. No one ought to cherish a grudge against the sinner who repents, but heartily to forgive him.
He who says that he has repented of a sin ought not only to be pricked with compunction for his sin, but also to bring forth fruits worthy of repentance
A Christian ought not to wait for an opportunity for his own amendment, because there is no certainty about the morrow.

Good article. If one completely obeys the commandments to (1) love God, and (2) love your neighbor as yourself, they will fulfill all of these concepts, as well as everything else that is 'good'.

who="Hermeneutics Smutics" Having worked with both sex offenders and victims, I have given much consideration regarding there is anything re the Catholic Church versus other Churches that would make it more attractive or vulnerable to sex offenders.
I am aware of the psychological instruments used to measure risk levels and what they measure. Chastity would not raise risk, Fact.Homosexuality would not raise risk. Fact.
One might consider the possibility that the sheer size of the Catholic Church, its huge bureaucracy,along with its antiquated style of management would make this problem harder to manage.
As for the rest of the factors, such as cover up, etc., you will find this in any church or organization.
One difficulties churches faced (face today?)is that noone has developed a sex offender treatment that is spiritually based.A Church will turn to God and spiritually based help. This is its nature. But spiritually based alone will not work unless the offender is given specific tools to control this compulsion.
AS far as the statistics re which which has the most offenders, we will never know. It is immaterial. The point is all churches have this problem.
That's my 2 cents

----------
Valuable 2 cents, Herme. This problem is a 'human offense' that is just more offensive when any 'good church people' fail to live up to what they preach.

I do believe that the CC 'celibate' position leaves men in a more vulnerable position.

Our current 'free love' culture has compounded the problem. Pornography is rampant.'Shacking up' is tolerated, even encouraged. Homosexuals and NAMBLA are allowed to hold their heads up proudly, teaching youth that chastity is nothing to be desired. We don't preach about 'sin' and 'hell' much anymore, so people have no fear of judgment.(The fear of God is the BEGINNING of WISDOM.)

There is a spiritual solution, but it only works when one is truly repentant, and seeking help.

Two commandments hung the prophets!!!!!?????

Try reading what Jesus said about it:

Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mat 22:40 ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.

Yes, Popes, Priests and Bishops have asked for prayer and victims have been encouraged to come forward. The link shows the great amount of programs put in place to educate the laity and noone has done more than the Catholic Church for preventative measures. Does it mean it well never happen in the largest Christian church in the world? No Does it give Kay Marie or other hate mongering bigots in here a free ticket to bash on the church and say all ours are known or we dont have any or your church is far worse? NO Do we just point out that others have it so that justifies it? NO Biased and blind hateful people with an axe to grind do so. I posted 4 pages of Protestants who covered up in response to the denial festival which you said nothing about and it continues. If you were a decent person you would tell Kay Marie and others who make such ingorant statements or that its a Catholic problem pretty much exclusively fine. Every Catholic has said countless times its wrong, yet you all chime in on attacking the church. What is your church doing to prevent it? What are you doing for the much bigger problem in public schools? What is the media doing? Why is it ok to put Catholic Priests on lists to notify neighborhoods when just an accusation is brought forth credible or not? People sin preists or not. The church clearly does not preach its ok or its good. But your confrinter buddies will say its because YOU ROMAN CATHOLICS are Idol worshippers. If you have any evidence that there is a larger problem in the Catholic church then feel free to do so. Meanwhile Honest protestants who are not hate filled, blind anticatholics with a log in their eye well they are probably Cloet Catholics. lol You people make me sick. Nothing will change until you all say its wrong wherever it is. God forbid any of you animals admit the church has done many good things. Its far more productive for you to slam on the church and dig up individual cases. Insurance companies and Independent investigations do not bode that it is a Catholic issue. Protestant churches close, Protestants dismiss and preachers move on down the road. I am not going with the argument that yours are worse so that justifies anything. That is your pathetic arguments. Insurance companies wont even insure some organizations ever wonder why? RISK! What people need to do is stop pointing fingers and work to put programs in place including in our schools and with the attitudes of those in here that will never happen. Yes lawsuits are expensive and painful and even charities suffer. What needs to be done is done. Did you ever consider that a hiearchy with healthy coffers makes for a big Target? Attornies religious or not focus on where money is and the church kept records including the counseled and most of the cases are decades old. In the past decade the numbers are small. I dont think any church, school or organization is going to have a perfect record given time as these people can be very charismatic. So just give it a rest. Many countries still have no policy to deal with this and a lakc of knowledge of how to. Laws are often developed to deal with problems. Different cultures view and do things differently. It appears that some in here think if the Catholic church is dismantled they will all disapper and utopia will suddenly enlighten the world. Get real. Take off your blinders and stop focusing on the Catholic Church and worry about your own church and help people refocus on the problem at large.

Great post ..thing that bothers,most people,..IMO.is,moving these,men AROUND,children .

They should all..every one be in jail ..

But even at MIST ignorant time in history....even if only to save THEIR

Souls ...move them ..hide them ..someplace with NO KIDS..

And now that it's out ...educate spiritual counselors..to visit hem in jail ...But again never to be around kids,when they get out ..

It's an occasion to SIN ..is not safe ..they are SEX IFFENDERS LIKE ANY OTHERS,
IF They repent offer forgiveness ..God can..And does,.
I'm.sure that some hate being this way

BUT ANY person knows ..don't tempt them
If a clergy confesses to say liking playing images ..You do not give
Him.a,ministry at strip clubs .

Same difference ..except one is illegal and hurts the most innocent .

You don't offer diabetics Chocolate ...alcoholics beer

And pedophiles should not be around altar Boys,and school kids .

And anyone with any sense ..even before it was diagnosed ..could have figured this out ...EVEN IF ONLY TO PROTECT THE CHURCH...hide them

Monastery..sort mail ..work with the elderly ...NO KIDS,

That is,what people,do not understand
