Weaver95: vpb: There have always been dirty dealings going on in the Church.  When there is power or money to be had, it will attract the type of people who crave that sort of thing, and it's the perfect cover if you are a pervert.

I just don't see how the church can regain any sort of moral high ground after this.


Shut up! I can't hear them bemoaning the fact that consenting adults want to get married!

Releasing this information was the wrong thing to do. The Church has already forgiven those poor misguided children for their acts of homosexuality. There is no need for society to punish them further.

It's the church that made all these homosexuals running around these days.  The church should be forced to pay for their weddings, as punishment

Weaver95: hinten: Weaver95: Kinda puts the church's political views in a new light. How can they claim any sort of moral authority after details like this surface?

They can't even claim to be persecuted. This is hard evidence of a massive cover up organized from high up the food chain.


They claimed moral authority after killing thousand of witches, hundreds of thousand of heretics, stealing millions and millions of valuables, etc.
It seems you forgot that they are infallible.

No, there's a lot of chatter among pagans about the whole burning witches thing. I'm unlikely to forget it any time soon.


Please be careful around bonfires.

willfullyobscure: Well, define "horrific", for a start. I'm not advocating for pedophilia, but it's a fact that many, if not most young boys exploring their sexuality aren't exactly likely to turn down a free diddle from an older man, why would they?

I mean, if its chase-them-down-the-street-and--drag-them-down bloody screaming sodomy, obviously that's violent and awful. But getting a blowie or a handy from some old creep?

Noooott exactly the end of the world for a 12 year old. More like a bonus.

There's a reason these thing aren't reported until much later, when the little perverts gets older and uglier and can't get laid anymore, and turn those feelings of ambiguity into misdirected anger.


You're fishing with an explosive harpoon. I need you at "baited hooks."

Bloody William: How is child abuse and molestation not an excommunicable offense?


For the same reason that speeding doesn't get you kicked out of NASCAR; that's what these guys joined the club for.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Lots of "Child rape is bad" comments to go with the "Power to the People" and "Money is the root of all evil" comments. No action. Just like with his comments about sacrifice - notice, the Church hasn't given up Jack Squat. The Faithful are the ones who are supposed to sacrifice.

He talks a good game, but I've yet to see him actually take a swing.


What are you talking about? He's living in a small apartment with only one servant, and he does some of his own cooking. He even wipes his own backside. That's less of a luxurious living than my grandfather has!

Jon iz teh kewl: Copper Spork: elgrancerdo: Well, catholicism is a religion loosely based off the scriptures, but it has been diluted with enough paganism that perhaps they are not even close to having a relationship with the Holy Spirit to guide their lives, and this is evidence of that. Perhaps that is one of the secondary reasons for the cover up: they do not want to look in front of the other Christians as if their faith is not real.

All religions are bad. A true faith or relationship with your creator will save you.

The same way they did before.

People who want to believe will.  They don't care about facts.

It's even worse than they don't care about facts, they're openly hostile to the facts. Nothing pisses off a catholic more than pointing out all the little boy f*cking that goes on in the church.

Yeah but even the true believers have a serious problem. All the lies and corruption make it exceptionally difficult to use any sort of 'moral leverage' against undecided voters....if ever there were such a thing left in this country. That's what I'm wondering...how can the church claim they are doing the work of god and tell women that abortion is a mortal sin...lwhile at the same time the church is covering up decades of kiddie rape?


"If you're pre-born you're ok,if you're pre-school you're farked."

Literally, apparently.

cameroncrazy1984: EvilEgg: Why do we have murder mysteries on TV but no rape mysteries,

I guess you've never seen SVU.


Oh c'mon, SVU isn't a mystery show. 99% of the time it's some awful man. 1% of the time it's a woman, who was previously abused by an awful man.

It's simple. Just ignore any inclination toward logic or basic human decency.

Is murder a worse crime than rape?  Why do we have murder mysteries on TV but no rape mysteries, maybe rape is worse.  But then I don't recall any abortion mysteries on the TV either, so there's that.

L&O SVU is all about the rape.

I was just thinking that damn one of TVs highest rated dramas today starts every episode with a rape
