Let's just hope no boy-sized skeletons are lurking in his closet.

Really? You have evidence of that?

So, a priest died 18 days after easter. Figure the odds.

Apparently the world has not seen enough coverups from the Catholic church yet. Hopefully we will reach a tipping point soon, for the children's sake and we can convert all these Catholics to Episcopals. Very similar services, but without all the rampant child rape.

Just looking for evidence that the Priest named in the article participated in a cover up as he was accused of in this thread.

I'm sorry that makes you angry.

Guilty by association. I don't see how anyone would willingly want to a part of an organization that has no intention of preventing its employees from raping their customers. Wait, are we talking about Goldman Sachs or the Catholic church? They are so similar, I get confused.

In any organization, there are good people and bad people. As someone who knew him at ISU (attended a couple retreats he led) Rev Ev was most definitely one of the good ones. He really knew how to connect with students and get them to think about what they do with their lives.

(And yes, I know this is fark, so someone will make the obligatory joke about that one)

Evidence of what? What is it you think is defamatory about that question? Looks perfectly innocent to me, unless you have something specific in mind that you think Catholic priests cover up.

came for the dumbasses making comments about pedophile priests. I knew I would not be disappointed. It really has no place here unless you have some proof against this particular priest.

Coming to a thread about a priest who recently died and commenting on pedophiles makes as much sense as the folks at the Westboro Baptist Church. Think about that the next time you get all self righteous about condemning the Westboro Baptist Church for protesting at funerals.

Does that apply to the mob? You are either righteous or not. When you get paid for it the burden is on you.

Did a search - you're the first person in the thread to use the word pedophile.

"The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

Sometimes the atrocities committed by a few far outweigh any good done by the many. This would be one of those times.

The real outrage is that people have not deserted Catholicism en masse. There are plenty of other religions out there that are similar enough for them, they just need to get their heads out of their asses first.
