The Church's covering up of pedophile priests is, of course, tragic; there is no excuse for their mishandling. However, through it all, the Eucharist never has changed. It has been and always will be (as long as it is consecrated correctly) the Body of Christ. So the devil through fallen priests is (and has been) trying to pull people away from the reception of Jesus, and sadly, there are many who follow him.

As Mother Teresa once said, There will always be problems in the Church, but the faith itself is without flaw.

Was the Inquisition merely “tragic?” Rome may have a friendlier face, but at her core she’s no different today than she was when the rivers of Europe were red with the blood of “heretics.” In fact, her doctrine is much worse.

At this point, Teresa of Calcutta, Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, has learned that the Roman “church” has big big flaws. That’s tragic!

We Christians at FR show the flaws in your 'faith' on a daily basis...
