You insulted the Pope who has been adament about cleaning out the child molesters....sad for you that you expose your ingnorance of the man. This article shows that our President has read his book and shows some esteem for him. You, also, insult the beautiful art, or icons, that Catholics enjoy.

You continue to post insulting commments that add to the ingnorance of your original post. You should have quit while you were ahead.

Thanks, xs, for watching my back.

“You insulted the Pope “

You are a liar. I never mentioned the Pope. I said a Bishop.

I’m sorry if I offended you. I didn’t realize you guys were so sensitive. Please don’t sue me or have me arrested for creating an envionment of fear where you were made to feel uncomfortable. I promise not to make light of anything Catholic so you don’t have to relive the horror of this day.

i guess i just find it odd how erstwhile Christians prefer to bash the faith of others, than to promote the love of Christ in their own lives, by their example. Who, anywhere, would read appypappy’s posts on these religion threads and say to themselves, what a godly man, i wish i could walk the walk of Christ as he does?

Papers: Jesuits Were Warned about Abusive Priest

By Barbara Bradley Hagerty
National Public Radio
October 29, 2007

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15683354 [with audio]

Father Donald McGuire sexually abused two teenaged boys in the 1960s. That much is public record: He was convicted in a criminal trial last year.
As recently as nine weeks ago, Jesuit leaders insisted that they had no knowledge of any other abuse by the renowned priest. But documents show that over the past 38 years, Jesuit leaders were alerted many times about McGuire’s behavior — even as criminal and civil cases were under way. That raises the question: What happened to those records?

Father Donald McGuire, shown here with nuns from Mother Theresa’s order, the Missionaries of Charity, was convicted in 2006 of sexually abusing two boys in the 1960s.

Documents in the Case

Lawyers for several of Father McGuire’s alleged victims have obtained documents that show the Jesuits were repeatedly alerted to his alleged sexual abuse, beginning in 1969. Read some of those documents:
