You know what? This is absolutely upsetting and horrifying for many of us Catholics here. It would be nice if the Protestants here would take the high road ...just for once... out of respect for what many of us feel right now.

Feelings? Get over it.

I'm going to presume that most Catholic posters here are adults. There's no reason to treat you like children whose feelings are hurt. Man up. It's time you guys faced the reality of what's going on in your church.

Truth hurts sometimes.

It's all right. We've been around for thousands of years. We will survive this.

[16] Simon Peter answered and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. [17] And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven. [18] And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. [19] And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven. [20] Then he commanded his disciples, that they should tell no one that he was Jesus the Christ.

Indeed these scandals put a sincere Catholic in a difficult position. He can't know just how deep and extensive the rot goes but surely he can't be on the Titanic. If so baling water and tossing cargo overboard won't help,

Or perhaps he is in the same position as ordinary Jews were when Jesus said the kingdom was being taken away from that ancient nation and being given to a nation producing the fruits of the kingdom.

May I ask what you consider to be "the high road"?

Your Magisterium has a queer lobby...This has been going on for a long, long time...I'd say you guys have been in denial for just as long...

Most Catholics on these threads usually counter with, 'well, it's just as bad or worse in secular schools, so',,,,,

You and Brian Kopp seem to the only two actually shook up about this situation...

Christians bear their cross and suffer along with Christ when Satan attacks His body.

Those who aren't part of the body of Christ line the streets mocking and jeering at those who take up their cross and follow Him just like they mocked and jeered at Christ.

You can drop your cross and go along to get along or you can get used to the jeering and mocking from those who worship the god they see in the mirror.
