Actually if you look in totality at the whole sex abuse scandal.. in Ireland, The US, Canada, Australia or any of the sundry other place it has happened this one thing becomes clear... while only about 3% percent of the priest abused children... nearly 100% of the Church hierarchy covered up the crimes and that this was this recurring pattern of criminal conspiracy by church leaders that has caused the church far more trouble... if they had done the right thing in the first place and turned over these predators to the police with instructions to make examples of them, the bishops would have been heros and not the co-conspirators they are now.  (Nov 29, 2009 | post #4)

The Church Hierarchy are called shepherds and the19 the rest are called the flock for a good reason… Why do shepherds, ultimately, keep a flock of sheep?… To shear them, to eat them, and sometimes, to f- them.  (Nov 28, 2009 | post #19)

Oh I completely agree that using a handicap... any handicap should never be used as an excuse for laziness or to game the system. But unfortunately in our country last name and/or skin color has been a handicap to some... just as much as my deafness was to me... the programs you are complaining about were instituted not because the participants were whiney, lazy, ignorant, irresponsible, demanding, uncouth, cowardly leeches but because of the way straight white Christians had the system stacked. Their last name and/or skin color was a disadvantage... not of their making but that of the straight white male Christians making... I would suggest this... remember what your good book says... whatever shall you sow... that shall you also reap. If straight white male Christians did not want to do the time... Then they should not have done the crime.  (Nov 17, 2009 | post #68)

I guess my position would come from the fact I have benefited of having the playing field leveled.. You see I am profoundly deaf... and can't hear a thing... I have directly benefited from the ADA... and I don't see it gave me a thing... I hold a Phd in History from a hearing school... the Univ of North Carolina... if the ADA had not made for provisions to accommodate my deafness I can tell you I would not have been able to get it... and I would not have gotten my Phd because because I lacked the ability or intelligence to receive my degree or the willingness to work in obtaining it... but because others would have said that because I am deaf... I did not belong in a school for hearing students.  (Nov 16, 2009 | post #66)

I am not sure what it is but my observation has been that Christian have this persecution complex... that really has no basis in reality... just because Christians lose the upper hand and position of the privileged they have long enjoyed in this country, does not mean they are being persecuted... it means they should have never had that upper hand and privileged position in the first place.  (Nov 16, 2009 | post #62)

You generalize too much here... I am not looking to be married in any church... and if you notice you do not buy your marriage licenses at any church... so no church should have any say in my decisions on MY marriage. Now I need to ask... honestly when was the last time you meet someone who lost their job because of EEO laws?... The figures show just the opposite... Minorities of all stripe have in fact been impacted harder in this economic downturn then white males. One thing is changing for straight white Christians and that is the playing field is being evened out... and it really sounds to me you don't like that very much  (Nov 16, 2009 | post #61)

The crimes against children by Catholic priests were horrendous and wide spread.... but what the Church hierarchy and its apologist are trying to do is White Wash is the fact that the church engaged in a conspiracy to cover over these crimes that bordered on violations of the RICO Act.  (Nov 16, 2009 | post #57)

It is better to be Islamic in the US then in an Islamic Country.... And I would wager you can not show us one quote from the Government of Iran advocating they be allowed to build nukes so they can wipe US off the face of the earth. A Church even to this day is not forced to preform interracial marriages... I can't find a single case where a church was forced to perform an interracial marriage and I would hazard to say you can not either. The LDS church was free to deny priesthood status to blacks until it decided on its own to end the practice, the Catholic Church was free to refuse to marry a Catholic to a non Catholic, The government never attempted to force the LDS church to change its policies regarding blacks, even though those policies were racist and discriminatory. The Catholic Church was never threatened with the loss of tax exempt status for any refusal of interfaith marriages. History shows that churches will be free to practice their religion, even when such practices are discriminatory. There is, therefore, no reason to believe the hysterical arguments now being put forth with respect to gays....in fact Eleven o'clock Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour in America to this day with only about 5 percent of this nation's churches being racially integrated and nearly 100 percent of those churches practicing dogmatic purity.  (Nov 16, 2009 | post #56)
