It probably has something to do with the overall desensitization campaign for pedophilia nowadays....

1. Desensitization
2. tolerance
3. acceptance
4. celebration

I have little doubt US DOJ will do a nationwide investigation as they should.

CSpan should cover hearings for all to see.

Went back to correct a word. Meant Embezzling. Too late so will do it here. Spending church funds on themselves for who knows what. Some of the laity have decided to stop giving until this mess is cleared up.

The Catholic Church is in a tough spot regarding homosexuality in the modern world.

Since homosexuality is generally being more accepted and even celebrated today, if the church were to stick to teaching us to follow Gods laws...well, that would conflict with the secular world too much, and lots of people would probably stop attending mass or leave the church altogether.

The real problem is that majority of catholics want the best of both worlds, they want to be a catholic, and also be a good/normal secular citizen as well, they dont want to be labelled like those at Westboro Baptist or other churches that take a strong opposition to homosexuality, this would effect their secular lives too much, it would effect their jobs, livelihood, etc, so its much easier to just 'go along to get along'.

Catholics know times will come when they are hated and despised by the secular world...however if they sit on the fence or do not take the 'unpopular' side, no one will have reason to hate or despise them!

Look at how Westboro Baptist and its members are hated and despised by the secular world for their stand on homosexuality!!!

But the Church does not hate gays. We are to love the sinner but hate the sin. But you are right too many n the Church today just want to be liked so we have weak knee priests who stay away from the difficult topics for whatever reason. Too keep people from leaving, to keep the donations coming.

Jesus told us the world would hate us like it hated him.

So, has this thread now fully taken to 'gay bashing'? Are homosexual people really seen as 'evil' possessing 'a disease straight from hell', Janelle? Is that ALL homosexuals? If so - and I'll ask again - how do you suggest that society deals with homosexual people who are here to stay unless ...well, what method DO you suggest to eliminate them ...?

So what do you suggest be done to gay pedophile priests or gay priests to sexually abuse men in the seminary?


I have posted many links to others who have an idea of what should happen to put a stop to it. Defrock men who abuse and or jail pedophile priests.

As for gay people not in this topic. I'll post this again.

This is what the Pope says, I agree, but the Pope cannot cover up abuse which this thread is about.

“I am glad that we are talking about ‘homosexual people’ because before all else comes the individual person, in his wholeness and dignity. And people should not be defined only by their sexual tendencies: let us not forget that God loves all his creatures and we are destined to receive his infinite love.”
– Pope Francis, The Name of God is Mercy
