Lulz. Maybe ill live to see the day the catholic church collapses. I would like to watch Italy repossess the Vatican.

I'm wondering... We're hearing about so many of these so called 'sex scandals' within the Catholic Church, but how much of the same sort of thing is going on in the Anglican and Greek Orthodox Churches that never see the light of day?
I mean, they're pretty much clones of the Catholic Church, or am I mistaken??

Noodle, it's not just those, either.  The Protestants in America have their own molesters:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

So, basically, the Catholic Church, for the entirety of its history, has been in this "unhealthy stage," then.

I don't think that website is being updated any more. The most recent articles are from 2003. But you can find plenty of recent articles by Googling "Protestant church abuses," "Baptist sex scandals," and similar phrases. There is no lack of criminal behavior of all kinds in nearly every major denomination around the world. Churches are the perfect havens for rapists, child molesters, thieves, you name it, because for some reason, nobody ever suspects anyone of wrongdoing in the church.

If a person can't imagine or doesn't want a heterosexual marriage, I could understand committing your life to the church, assuming you are Catholic, of course.  I doubt that most gays see the Church as a gay hangout.  Some might, but if you are indoctrinated by Catholicism, why not become a priest?

I see nothing wrong with gays in the clergy.  Pedophilia, which is not the same thing as homosexuality, is the scandal here.  Gays in the clergy are fine.  Child molesters in the clergy are not.

Actually, most of the stories don't involve pedophilia. They involve hebophilia, which is a sexual attraction to sexually-mature teenagers. Not the same thing - not even close. Hell, most porn mags and websites try for 18 year-old models, and they only stop at 18 because 15 is illegal. Sexually mature humans are hottest when they're between 15 and 25.

Pedophilia is an attraction to sexually immature children. Some of the abusive priests were going after 10-year-old altar boys, but most were chasing that fine 15-year-old male tail.

I'm sure they will find a way to blame the secular left for all of their troubles.

To be fair the secular left is responsible for a lot of their problems.

I think it's wonderful.

... which is still criminal, in America.

Where did you find your age breakdown on the victims?

Yup. Why do they give it the big anti-gay old testament fire and brimstone shit?  Is this just denial on a massive scale?
