Sexual abuse of children should concern us all don’t you agree? It is bad enough they are among us, but for an institution which would have those thick enough to do so, believe it is there to protect and “save” them, to not only have 1400 year history of pedophilia in it’s ranks, but which has been protecting them and further victimizing the victims for the same length of time is unspeakable. Erasing the RCC from the face of the Earth would go a long way to cleansing the place.

Stay away from the yogurt, it is likely more cultured than you Aff.

Whenever I hear about the newest scandel the catholic church is in,I feel a little happy;Shooting itself in the foot again and again.Doesnt it seem like people raised as catholics are most likley to run from that faith when they get the chance tongue laugh Pedophilia should not be tolerated,but the RCC is not the only group that is guilty of it!

Right, but is it the biggest organized pedophile ring in the world. Adherents are leaving the church in droves both here and in Europe. http://www.ad2000.com.au/articles/2009/may2009p8_3032.html

Denying gods exists is an admission one might, for one cannot deny that which does not exist. Reality, is realizing there are no gods to deny.

From the feel of that article,it sounds like they are ready to start assinating secularists.The RCC has been losing members in the western world for a long time,that’s a good thing IMO,but they are finding many converts in the rest of the world.I like how they call their members “sheep”, if we are the sheep, they are the shepards who enjoy beastiality LOL

Pretty much got it right. Church attendance overall has been falling for some years, which is good news

Depends on what it’s replaced with, doesn’t it? Somebody may give up on one creed only to feel the need to embrace another. One would hope that religion would be replaced with rationalism, but it doesn’t always work that way.

FWIW, Pope John Paul was not made a ‘saint’...yet..both he and ‘Mother’ Theresa the sadist, was beatified, which is the first step towards sainthood. I think they are trying to push through the the most beloved pope of the 21st century before all of the evidence comes out showing that he was nothing more than the head of a worldwide pedophile ring, and Mother Theresa was just another Marquis de Sade…I really think she got her jollies from the misery of others..

Being replaced with nothing at all would suit me.But its probably going to be just more religion((for those that want it.)

So it’s something like Purgatory for the big league?

How do people dream up all this stuff?

They’ve had thousands of years of practice, and lots of precursor stories to pick and choose from.

Paul John II was very popular with people.  Why?  I suppose that it was because of his liberal ideas, like apologizing for how Galileo and others were treated, reaching out to the children of the world, and other good ideas like that.  Not to imply that John Paul II was a liberal, just more liberal than past Popes.  Obviously his involvement in the cover-ups of the abused children is a black mark.  His sainthood is on the fast track as a populist move by the Vatican, and the sainthood process is ridiculous… I mean get a couple of people to claim that they were healed miraculously by the person and a few decades later your sainted.  An entirely supernatural process, not based on merit.

John Lennon?  What do you think of this one?
