The Oregonian ^ | 08/14/2012 | Oregonian

Posted on 08/15/2012 7:03:12 AM PDT by aimhigh

It was close to midnight Sunday when Woodburn (Oregon) resident James Curths saw the 12-year-old boy running down the street toward him. Curths said the child, panting and out of breath, begged for help, telling him a man was chasing him.

Moments later, a man rounded the corner wearing only underwear.

A priest and a boy? No way.

Thank goodness it wasn’t a woman. That would have violated his vow of celibacy. #illogicality

Nothing to worry about. Like Jerry Sandusky, this guy’s a homosexual so he’s protected. It’s all good.

Stop blaming the Church. Homosexuals have attempted to infiltrate every organization with lots of young boys/males in order to satisfy their obsession. Homosexuals who apply for such positions don’t declare their sexual orientation. They have done this for centuries. It is nothing new but now they seem to be everywhere.

You realize, of course, that sociopaths are generally very skilled at hiding their true personalities from normal, well-intentioned people.

The vow is chastity.

Celibacy (remaining unmarried) is the discipline, chastity (refraining from all sexual immorality in thought, word and deed) is the vow.

There is nothing illogical - you simply do not understand the terms of the syllogism.

The infiltration of the church by these demons is difficult to stem, but the church has got to tighten up its standards.

Even if the percentage of abusers is the same as the general population, the problem appears to be endemic to the priesthood.
I am thinking that maybe chemical castration might be an area to investigate.

From the article:
The Salem boy told authorities that Perez had asked his parents a few days earlier if he could take him on a trip to the mountains.

When in the world will parents learn? The answer to that question is a resounding “EFFFFFF NOOOOOOOOOOOO”

Harry Callahan: Well, when an adult male is chasing a female with intent to commit rape, I shoot the bastard. That’s my policy.

The Mayor: Intent? How did you establish that?

Harry Callahan: When a naked man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher’s knife and a h*rd-on, I figure he isn’t out collecting for the Red Cross!
[walks out of the room]

The Mayor: He’s got a point.

Who is stupid enough that they get a request like that from a priest and still let their child go anywhere near him?

The MSM has done its job well (of course, a little anti-Catholic predisposition in the heart of the listener helps). In reality, the instance of abuse (even at its peak) is below the rate of general society and minuscule compared to the public schools.

Yeah - that's why this will all get swept under the rug and the Diocese will just move him somewhere else.

It looks like the state of Oregon will be moving him to detention.

Who wants to bet Rev. Angel Armando Perez of St. Luke Catholic Church FAVORS same sex marriage.

I'll also bet he his favorite sermons are about 'forgiving sinners' and 'not judging'... as if all of Christianity was nothing more than an organization set up to enable evil...

Let's not forget, satan attacks the church from within. This is his plan to not only tear down the church, but to turn people away from the church who might be seeking.

Homosexuals in every denomination are used by the father of lies to warp and pervert what belongs to God and satan’s primary goal is to kill, steal and destroy.

Where does “keeping it real” and “living into my true sexuality” hide in that theology?

Nowhere. Hence the decision of many to reject that theology outright, because it conflicts with their appetites.

***************************************

The heck they don't. Most do declare their sexual orientation. I have a brother in law that's a Friar (monk).
He had been gay his whole life, before he chose this celibate life.
They all have to go through a long major interview process where they get into everything including your sexual orientation.

A lot of the Friars are also Priests. In fact, he is still considering becoming a priest too. He said that living a gay lifestyle before does not automatically disqualify him or anyone else from becoming a Friar or a Priest.

Yah, but there seems to be an age old culture of homosexuality and sexual license among Catholic priests that has traditionally enjoyed protection from investigation from top levels of the bureaucracy.

When I was a student at St. Mary’s College in the 60’s, I recall a series of incidents in which a Christian Brother hit on me hard and even stalked me after I had transferred to UC Berkeley. He had been doing this to other students for years and at one point extolled the virtues of becoming a “Brother’s Boy”.

I later learned from a friend that he had also been the object of this Brother’s unwanted attention. Brother Robert of Mary, Christian Brother educator, was a chronic and unrepentant homosexual recruiter and an enabler and caused me to lose all respect for the clergy.

Chaucer was mocking gassy, buggering friars in the 14th century.

Chaucer was mocking gassy, buggering friars in the 14th century.


From The Canterbury Tales: The Summoner's Tale

480......"Ah," thought the friar, "this shall go with me!"
And down he thrust his hand right to the cleft,
In hope that he should find there some good gift.
And when the sick man felt the friar here
Groping about his hole and all his rear,

485......Into his hand he let the friar a fart. There is no stallion drawing loaded cart
That might have let a fart of such a sound.
The friar leaped up as with wild lion's bound:
"Ah, treacherous churl," he cried, "by God's own bones,

490......I'll see that he who scorns me thus atones;
You'll suffer for this fart- I'll find a way!"

It’s not like they announce to the world that they like little boys. Sick bastards. The church needs to get rid of them, put them out on the street.

Mr. Curths is a hero.

I would have called the police though. That priest tried to turn the family against the boy in the name of Christian “forgiveness” is why I would bring the police in immediately.

Church officials and offenders have twisted this aspect of Christ’s teaching to avoid paying for their perversion and crimes against innocent boys. They need to be stopped and punished.

The boy scouts do not permit homos access to boys for a reason. The Catholic church must reject homos from the priesthood if they want the homo sex abuse of boys to stop.

When an applicant admits he’s homo, he’s telling them he’s got a serious sexual disorder. Experience shows that sexual disorder acts out in the authority of the priesthood against other males. Further, it is a faith killer.

I've always rather more enjoyed Chaucer in the original Middle English.

A! thoghte this frere, that shal go with me!
And doun his hand he launcheth to the clifte,
In hope for to fynde there a yifte.
And whan this sike man felte this frere
Aboute his tuwel grope there and heere,
Amydde his hand he leet the frere a fart,
Ther nys no capul, drawynge in a cart,
That myghte have lete a fart of swich a soun.
The frere up stirte as dooth a wood leoun, --
A! false cherl, quod he, for goddes bones!
This hastow for despit doon for the nones.
Thou shalt abye this fart, if that I may!

The loudest voices screaming in outrage that the Catholic Church "allows" homosexual pedophiles in leadership positions, express equal outrage because the Boy Scouts of America won't.

You have weird logic.

If the percentage is the same in a subset and in the general population, then the problem is also endemic in the general population.

That’s a good point, especially with priesthood.

What’s wrong with a THOROUGH background check on everyone who makes it past the first interview?
