Well, you make the third Catholic on FR who I’ve ever seen in no uncertain terms condemn what has happened
It goes without saying, but they always say it.
I can't speak for others on FR but if they're guilty, I'm ready, willing, and able, to lead an all Catholic firing squad and can assure you I'll have no shortage of volunteers. We'll even bill the local Bishop for the bullets if you like.
It's funny to see people who condemn the Church for a history of violence and stern discipline complain about them being too careful when someone is charged with crimes. So many of these posts read like 16th century German propaganda that it's simply amazing, and they applied the same tales to Catholics and Jews back then. At least we've got less aimed at Jews by Catholics and Protestants alike these days although the fascist left is the has more than compensated.
Without going into detail, trust me, there are plenty of Protestant pastors and youth group leaders around up to the same thing and more. Plenty. You can check any search engine and find all you like which is what the atheists and little anti-Christs do all the time. Saying this is unique to or more common in the Catholic Church is an outright lie. Protestant you may be, but to the world at large Christian is Christian and in spite of Protestants being by far the majority in this country beating up on the RCC does as much damage to Protestants as it does to the Catholics.
Those who ply their trade in clever remarks here and think they're doing some good aren't, but they are doing great harm. You harm Christ any time you slander another professing Christian before others, even those Christians you have doctrinal differences with. There's no telling how may who don't know Christ read here and decide, "a pox on all your houses, you bunch of squabbling, pedophile, Christians" after reading link and counter link to pedophile incidents. I've heard as much and have talked to those with hardened hearts after seeing such debates. Slathering one another with "It's Just Sin Ointment" (available in six all natural scents) is almost as bad but at least that approach looks more like what it is, just your opinion, since its generally accompanied by fewer links.
While they seem like just endless arguments, someone is winning everyone of these tag team match arguments on FR, and it's that master of divide and conquer tactics, Satan. Sister da Penguin from "The Blues Brothers" should show up and smack all of us around until we start being honest about the source of sin and stop laying it at one anothers' feet.
have a nice day
