I’m not Catholic, but just like most other churches nowadays it seems even this institution is rotten to the core. I shouldn’t be surprised given the number and magnitude of scandals over the years, it’s simply a continuation of the same.

Paraphrasing, but “Do not put your trust in men”.

“Paraphrasing, but “Do not put your trust in men”.”

Paraphrasing your paraphrase “Do not put your thrust in men”. ;^)

The Church has been the target of the devil for millenia. Satan has worked ceaselessly to steal souls. What better way to steal them from the Church than to infiltrate the ranks of Her priests and hierarchy with his servants?

It's no coincidence that every institution that we hold dear, that was once thought of as moral and virtuous has found itself the target of 'gay' agenda.

Like all human institutions, the Catholic Church has corrupt members and has had them since the beginning. This fact makes its 2000 year survival all the more miraculous.

Catholics can be confident that the truly faithful will always defeat the corrupt and the Church will survive to preserve, protect and deliver Christ’s message to the world forever.

How do we know this? Jesus told us: “The gates of hell will not prevail against my Church.”

There is no other explanation.
