Maybe they should have made "Stop raping little children" a commandment?

They'll just hide the money -- the victims won't see a dime.

They need to own up to this. They just refuse. It's pathetic.

RE: And the hits keep on coming from the Catholic church.
is there a correlation and causation between being a priest and having lots of sinful sexual frustration ?

And the longer it's dragged out, the higher the costs and therefore the higher the risk that other people lose their jobs.

Perhaps. For a Catholic male "back when" who knew on some level he wasn't going to get married, it was a *respectable* option.

I've frequently wondered if that was the case. To me, going into the church seemed to be the equivalent of the person who goes into the field of psychology, in order to figure out what's wrong with himself. I know a guy like that... he is currently failing miserably.

Facing up to one's true self seems to be very difficult for some... and it doesn't help when society makes one's personal understanding unacceptable or even criminal.

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

And the hits keep on coming from the Catholic church.
I'm going to look for an article I read long ago. A Jesuit said the majority of priests have girlfriends/boyfriends and many know. That's why so few come out against the molesters. (If you ever watched Babylon 5, it's like they have purple files on each other.) One accuses another, then soon the priesthood is in disarray.

The article was in Playboy, but I'll try to locate it.

RE: And the hits keep on coming from the Catholic church.
The mental gymnastics are what's most troubling to me. Priests actually saying if the boy is over the age of 12 it's a homosexual urge and not molestation.

The trying to validate it somehow..."gee I never thought there was anything wrong with having sex with children."

This isn't first time I've heard of a priest using that excuse. There was a debate a while ago with Hitchens and some catholic priest...

A good friend who's a staunch catholic said to me the priests (or the church as a whole) weren't to blame. They didn't understand the abuse of authority *might* be damaging to some. Now I didn't share the fact I'm a sexual abuse survivor...and I find that reasoning to be utter bullshit.

It's not just a face-palm moment but it's dangerously out of touch with any type of reality. The fact that people would consider defending that personal level of stupid is worse. The so-called moral authority didn't know it was against the law and wrong -- we'll give him a pass. He knows now and won't ever do it again. Or the ever popular we should just pray for them.....

Again....it's bullshit.
