....There is no collective group of people anywhere that have paid out nearly $3 Billion in court costs.......except the catholic church. 10 Dioceses in the USA have filed for bankruptcy have you been keeping score?

....The only reason the church has now responded is because they got caught and the number of cases so overwhelming they couldn't cover the them up anymore. Remember the bishops didn't call the police (except one bishop) in Wisconsin and he was blown off by then Cardinal Benedict.) it was always the victims who reported these most disgusting crimes

,...You OK with that?

....Outside insurance who do you think is paying? You should be outraged.......... not doing comparisons to other religions

....Every diocese where there were molesting clergy resided a bishop that kept all quiet from inquiring parishioners and victims families. All around the world.
.....The abuse scandals created a huge black eye for the church. Loss of integrity, and trust. Ask young people today? The current scandal for the second time of the Vatican bank money laundering scandal ha been on the front burner for two years.

.......Sex scandals, money scandals........does it get any worse?

Christianity currently makes up 23% of the world population. 17% catholic.....

So now in your new delusion you pick on Catholics as the evil ones and praise your choice of being a Protestant as a step in a holy direction.
That is not balance. That is simply jumping from on illusion to another that YOU deem is superior.
To find relative balance is to know that religion does not perform a makeover on humans. It simply tries to hide human nature in the scriptures of one or another "book" and pretend that the words in the book have purified human nature.
You refer to Catholics as vile and lost, and they return the "favor" to you.
And none of want to think any thoughts beyond your present mentalities.

I didn't say I joined a Protestant church, did I?
Those are YOUR words.
I said,(read it carefully)..."I came out of the Catholic Church whose history of wars and inquisitions, terror & torture and murder ... I found distasteful."
THIS WOULD MEAN that there is no way I would join a church that took part in wars, inquisitions, terror & torture and murder -- wouldn't it?

If a Catholic or a Protestant was on a mission in a Muslim country, the Catholic and the Protestant would not be concentrating on belittling each other, because they would both be fully involved with converting Muslims to either Catholicism or Protestantism.

But in America, Catholics and Protestants tear at each other as evil deceivers. This thread is an example of that habit. The Christians are so busy belittling each other's religions, they barely mention Islam or Hinduism or Wicca, et cetera, as being offensive to "God."

....currently 155 million protestants in america. 68 million catholics. The stories of Catholic clergy abusers came up much more often than protestants, and catholic clergy in bunches of 25-35 were rounded up in many dioceses around america, and around the world.

....There was, or is, a perverted sexual sub culture within the catholic clergy and seminaries.

...,Catholic priest Father Donald Cozzens and other catholic clergy have often stated that there is a very high rate of homosexual catholic clergy compared to the general public.

Google....... Donald Cozzens gay clergy....

Oh Ramen Noodle do you see why I said you got Mikey all excited again so he can spew about his obsession? How sad

From my post to you
Today their is noone who has done more to insitute change than the church, regardless of how it came about. In life in general most things are dealt with best when information is shared and things are made known to all. Hindsight is pure genius and even then the road ahead will not be perfect. Those who claim they have no problem or do nothing have fingers pointing right back and need to remove the log from their eye.

Like I said predictable as a step like little kids in a play yard.

"You only make change cuz of exposure" Well DUH!! Aren't most problems dealth with when they are brought out in the open and probed into?

"You paid blah blah? "Money only shows that a large church with wealth is a bigger target than some congregation who may already be in debt.

"You point to others to justify it." No you saying that doesnt make it so. However self rigtheousness and pointing fingers and excusing doing nothing by others enables the problem elewhere and helps noone except those who want to live in denial and pretend they really care by focusing on one organization and saying everyone who remains in it is evil and all will be good if everyone leaves and nothing short of that is satisfactory.

Blah blah blah.. I think Mike ought to focus on Candadian abuse elsewhere, but he is too busy reading that one letter he may have wrote years ago to a Bishop,, because he is the great hope for children everywhere. lol

Your only point is to divert any negativity away from your Catholic cult.

Ever since you started posting you have NEVER taken responsibility for any Catholic deception. Your training and your habit is to deflect away from your church and in turn pile blame on others.

It's a nasty habit.

If you believe that the god hears the prayers of others in other religions and answers them, then that would mean your religion is nothing to brag about ... RIGHT???

You know as well as I know that you believe the god is their for your service as a divine Catholic ... but he will turn his head away from those yucky heretics in other religions.

You DO believe heretics exist DON'T you!

Dumb-founded FOOL!!!

...Come on back, in the day there were many man gods that people believed in and went to their graves believing....as man educated himself they became mythical. I am sure the way Christianity is going in the western world it too will one day be replaced with something else. Secularism is growing quickly in the educated world. Today the vast majority of catholics/Christians are poor uneducated peasants.

,.....catholicism in the USA only makes up 6% of the world catholics. Vast majority of catholics in our world are very poor.

[QUOTE who="Regina"]
That's it? You've been bearing false witness against the Church Jesus founded for years on end and all that time have desecrated scripture, the very word of God, in an attempt to support that false witness. Your bigotry has not only become pathological but has taken on a life of it's own; it's organic. And all you can come up with is "ok then" when proven for the umpteenth time that you don't know what you're talking about?
I gave you at least three different links to very good articles explaining the correct interpretation of that passage, of what Christ was referring to, and why all the ancient Christian churches call their priests Father. You obviously didn't bother to read any of them. No wonder you keep repeating the same old errors over and over and over again. You don't care to educate yourself. Yet another reason why Christ left us His church, so that people such as yourself don't have to go wandering around in the dark anymore. Unless, of course, you choose to do so, which it appears you do.
Read. If you have any questions, ask us. Btw, the Pope is a priest, no need to say "pope and priests" since he is one. The word "pope" comes from the Latin "papa" and the Greek "pappas" meaning, well, Papa. It's a title of affection. The Coptic Orthodox also have a pope.
-
-
I know the pope is also a priest ... and I know pope stands for Papa or *Father*!

What I also know is that bestowing that title is in DIRECT OPPOSITION to the very words of Jesus ... yet they took the title anyway and they insist on being called father. I've read the links you sent; it all says the same thing. They always go in this round about way to excuse the use of Father for religious titles.
-
Here's one you need to answer.
-
Did Jesus tell you to NOT call your fleshly father by the title Father?
NO. He did not.
But as for SPIRITUAL FATHERS - YOU HAVE BUT ONE, AND HE IS IN HEAVEN .. so Jesus himself said.
And if ANYONE would kn ow, it would be him, wouldn't it?
-
But did you catch the innuendo there?
-
DO YOU REALIZE that when he said YOU HAVE *ONE* FATHER IN HEAVEN ....
.....
.... he was excluding .... even himself.
-
-
NOT EVEN JESUS HIMSELF was arrogant enough to insist on taking the RELIGIOUS TITLE of FATHER.
-
not even for a second.
and YET
Catholic priests insist upon it - in DIRECT DEFIANCE of the very instruction of Jesus Christ.

According to your own Christian dogma, burning in the flames of hell is the punishment.

Ink’s response

That is probably true for truly evil people who hurt others without remorse or care.

He also through the Spirit , I believe wholehsartedly, pursues those who have strayed.
The Shepherd will leave the 99 to find the lost sheep...the Father was running to meet the Prodigal..we cannot judge another or we again limit God's work ...
Maybe you should go to Iran on a mission to try to convert Muslims. That would be very thrilling for you ... as long as you didn't get raped and cut up by an Irate Muslim who places high value on the Mahdi as being the only savior coming to earth.

Preaching your gibberish on a forum is dull in comparison.

BS!
I suggest theologians would never believe others to be above them in the mental field of psychotherapy.

That would be an insult to those who believe they possess knowledge straight from on high.
