this is why protestant theology has ruined this country. It ushered in the sexual revolution, feminism and divorce. It started with abandoning your stance on contraception throughout Protestantism in the 30's.
The Pope condemned contraception because we humans aren't the architects of life. Therefore we have no business purposely blocking it.
He also warned that contraception would lead into promiscuity and recreational sex, yrs before it actually happened.
You protesters knew better than him though. He's the anti Christ...You have your bible, you're saved. The Holy Spirit is guiding you all to truth.

<quoted text>Well it is getting well known there are a lot of child molesters in the evangelical christian movement. Even a well know protestant pastor's son says so. There are more child molesters in the protestant churches than in the Catholic Church.
Wasn't the argument but thanks for your post.

Half of your Catholics,use BC and were,Feminists ..in HE name if equality for women.

It was a good idea,ON ITS FACE ..But those in charge had a,different agenda,..Han women getting better pay .

And Catholics,were involved ...just like others .

You said you wrongly had premarital sex ..ok fine ..DID YOU PROTECT YOUR PARTNER .

Men..CATHOlic men and boys as,well as others ..WALKED AWAY from young girls in trouble ...Now they just tell hem o get rid of it .

And some non Catholic Churches are much stricter than Catholics .

You bible only "fundies" have (called yourselves out) since the Reformation to distort, twist and manipulate the TRUTH of the True Interpretation of the Bible and TRUE Church History to "(make the bible) mean ONLY what (each one) of you (editorialists) want it to mean........ Jesus Christ is the ONLY ONE that is "calling you" out of the "darkness" of the bible only (deception and lies) that you "fundies" are living in, into the LIGHT OF THE TRUTH of Jesus Christ in and through HIS historically and biblically PROVEN One True Catholic Church ---AND----into the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the TRUTH!!
Reformation.....God calling His people to get back to the basics.....the Word of God!

Preach the Word of God.....

As Jesus is the Word of God.....

The Gospel of Jesus Christ....the good news....

Good news....the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ...

The word alone is the rule of faith in Christ Jesus.

Um, they do all those things.
There are counseling centers, adoption agencies, etc.
Generally people are tired of placards and marchers. Our world is almost divided on this issue and same sex marriage. Time to move on, people will do what they do. The laws are created by the people.

Where were the followers and voices of the religious against sexual abuse by clergy when it was in the media for years (still is) nothing but silence from the followers. WHY?

Maybe a few marches in front of the bishops residences, or letters of disgust would have gotten a little action back in the day, to prevent even one child from being harmed..........NOTHING but SILENCE!

What God would condone this of any church leaders?

SHAMEFUL!

Marching up and down streets with posters does nothing but draw attention to yourself. The general public has become numb to this tactic.
.....If one is REALLY! concerned about abortions than pro-life people should band together, offer these women support, collect money, go into the hosptials and women shelters pay the women if they would carry their babies to full term and have adoption agencies set up, instead of condeming some poor young girl who might have no support mechanism or no one to turn to.
Its time you get to work instead of useless marching and hateful condemning.
Michael, I can tell you from experince that 90% of girls do not want an abortion. they are between a rock and a hard place.
Parent when they find out their little girl is pregnant push their daughter to have one so she doesn't shame them,
The second reason is because they are afraid their parents will find out they are pregnant.
Every generation forgets what it was like when they were teenagers, I have heard it since I was one myself.
{I quote these teens today) everyone has one everyone has been one but no one wants them around.
In the 60's and 70's they were off to find themself, in the 80's and 90's they still hadn't found them self because they got lost in those drug induce decades.
Well people can't figure out what happened to the kids of this 21 century, they are and were begin raised by the drug induced, if it feels good do it generation.
People got to take off the rose coloured glasses and look at you kids, spend time with them.
When my daughter was young, I assured her to come home if she is ever in trouble no matter what that trouble was.
Always talk to your kids better still let them talk to you, listen to what they are saying you might learn something. If you don't they will go else where.
Try to think back to when you were a teen and what it was like, your kids have the same concerns and challenages are you did.
They have feelings, they have hurts and fears just like you did.
Teens are not freaks, they are people that are trying to please and be excepted by the past generation's of teens.
Who have grown into bodies and way of life and that is all these kids want.
Yeah they sleep a lot, and eat their body weight a day, but they are our children, they didn't ask to be born, and chances are they are just as dishearted by the parents they got as you are with the child you got many days.
And stop telling them about your experinces as a teen, it something they should never hear, and none of them really want to.
Stop trying to fit your chld into a box of what you think they should be they aren't you, their likes may be as far from you as it can possible be.
Love them and except them for who and what they are, they are individuals, when they fall open your arms and catch them.
That is what God does with us always.

The only difference, is he was adapting it to fit the Hebrew nationals in an attempt to bring them back to the old way of peace and harmony from which they were fallen.

Yes. Not only did they fail Catholics, they failed society in general. Thankfully it was a low percentage who did it.
Failure is a pretty weak word.

The most heinous crimes/sins committed were the REST of the catholic clergy who had first hand knowledge of these situations and all of them looked the other way and did nothing to protect the church and not the children.

There has been priest/bishop sexual predators in almost every diocese in america and around the world.

check out the USA and your diocese below:

No EXCUSE!

*** The very priests who taught you and me from a young age that we could not receive the Eucharist with such sins on our souls, yet EVERYONE of these knowing catholic clergy of another clergy sexually abusing a boy including the clergy abusers gave themselves the Eucharist at every mass they said.

HIPOCRICY!.......at its worst......and still! catholics find excuses or express SILENCE over these most heinous crimes.

Exactly.
It was nothing more than a poorly contrived attempt to deflect the guilt by projection and deflection of argument.
"But mommy...he did it too"...does NOT change the fact of one bearing guilt associated with the infraction....but a weak attempt to skew the unwanted stigma and judgement because of it.
In any case it is a dishonest tactic.

Its very sad.

As you know 50 years ago and before if a young girl became pregnant more often than not their parents shipped the girl off to another city to live in secrecy and shame with some aunt or cousin because the parents were embarassed and didn't want the neighbors to know.

At least today there are safety nets available for some of these children, and the stigma of shame is not like it use to be.

When a man left the seminary he ended up in a dicoese usually for the rest of his service life, shifting around from parish to parish. These priests from the dicoese all know everything about each other. They share living accommodations, they socialize together, they golf together, they holiday together. Each priest/bishop knows who the hard working priests/bishops are, who the drunks and substance abusers are and who the molesters were.

There was no excuse when it came to child abuse within the walls of the church and its- leaders. None of them ever dialed 9-1-1, it was always the victims and their families and even their families lived in horror as many catholics shunned them for accusing or exposing their beloved priest. Let it go they would say!

There is always right and wrong, and the catholic church clergy has done a lot wrong. The ONLY reason today they are now addressing this 17 century problem is because the number of cases became so overwhelming that they couldn't cover them up anymore. Shame on them.

Why would I go to a priest and tell my sins when the priest probably has worst sins on his own soul. Catholics wonder why young people today are running away from the church?

UNBELIEVABLE!
