Orthodox

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.

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

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'.

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.

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.
