I agree completely with 777236ER. The RC church has been covering up sexual abuse on a wide scale for decades. It's time for some accountability.
I agree, wasn't that implied?
Humans were not designed to be chaste, and the vast number of RC men who became priests to hide their homosexuality set up a 'perfect storm' for the widespread raping of altar boys.
Nobody is forcing anybody to be a priest. That was the wrong choice for any one of those pedophiles to join the clergy, as they are the last type of people the church needs at the altar. Yes, the church should do a better job cleaning up the scum, but they're learning now.
Leaving my son alone with a RC priest would leave me as nervous as leaving him with Michael Jackson.
...and leaving my nephew alone with a Canadian would leave me as nervous as leaving him in the ghetto, as my nephew will likely be brutalized to death with a hockey stick. Your point?
But it's not happening in other religions. Only the RC church.
Woah! Somebody watch for flying pigs; I'm actually on the same page as Falcon!
Sarcasm aside, Falcon said it like Lincoln said the Gettysburg Address, and I'll leave it at that.
Nope. Only the priests doing this are the rapists and monsters. And there are many of them. And what do we hear from the Pope???? Nothing but silence on this issue. Disgraceful.
Hmm, you avoided the "true colors of the Catholic Church" comment, and I don't know how well you can count, but there's far less than 1% who are pedophiles.
Hey, you know what though, on second thought I think you're right! I think we should immediately jail every Canadian living in America because I'm afraid of them beating up my little nephew with a hockey stick! Sounds good, doesn't it?!
On the topic of the pope, he ordered that several priests be excommunicated from the clergy due to their grave actions. Then again, I don't think him actually doing something right counts, because it goes against your bias of the Catholic Church.
And the Roman Catholics that go to church every Sunday without demanding justice from their local priest are effectively aiding and abetting the abuse of altar boys.
If you ever dared to step inside a Catholic Church and stop getting all your information from the internet, you'd see that the vast majority of priests DO
condemn the pedophiles who are priests.
I don't know, so this is my signature.
