It's obvious to anyone who reads this (and similar) threads with an open mind.
If the folks who are all bent out of shape over molesters who happen to be Catholic are ALSO bent out of shape over molesters who happen to be Protestant they can demonstrate it on this forum.
So far, they have failed to do so.
My statements are not outrageous.
The Protestant blindness to molestation within protestantism is outrageous.
Another baloney statement! There isn't a denomination out there that doesn't address the issue and move toward convicting the offenders when they are discovered....and every Protestant would be up in arms if it weren't addressed.
The fact is the catholic church was a magnet for these perverts because they knew they would be protected and would not face expulsion or criminal charges....and that's been proved in all these investigations. As well that the membership would turn their heads even when they suspected or knew about these criminal acts.
I lived in a community where the membership refused to address their Priest....in fact it was well known the kid he kept company with was his "Boy" toy. When asked why the membership didn't speak up it was said it's just how things have always been...it's not liked but people are afraid to make an issue about it for fear of the repercussions on the church and the Priest they love.
Once again evidencing that the reputation of the church outweighs the memberships concern for the welfare of their children
To which I asked (#118)for you to give your proof of that outrageous statement.
And your ambiguous answer to that is: Why, it's on this very thread.
Really? Where??? Which posts? which posters? Please give specific references to such an outrageous claim and why you think they are claing that. And yes, it is an outrageous claim that you make that Protestants think that molesting is fine is the molester is a protestant.
You totally miss the point.
