The Pope was in on the Fun!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100313/ap_on_re_eu/eu_church_abuse

Lovely article here being quite clear that the policies of the Catholic Church go right to the top, and, since the Pope is God’s representative on Earth (is the guy still considered infallible? or did that aspect get de-frocked the same way they left poor St. Christopher up Shit’s Creek without a Halo!), that speaks volumes of the character of God!

I am so thankful for each of you who have shared your truths here, acknowledging the abusive practices are widespread, and now, clearly International.

No Priest enters in to the Priesthood with the intention of participating in child abuse. No Nun would do the same.

(Of course, I still hold to a Child’s-eye view of the world!)

But once they are IN, they are initiated into a sort of Secret Society; exposed to moments of abuse modeled by their Elders/Peers, and then, quietly tucked away. A “Don’t Ask; Don’t Tell” atmosphere must had to have been institutionalized ages ago.

We are human, after all, and for those men and women who sacrifice so much for Christ, well, I guess they deserve a little Perk now and again.

    It is a travesty Russ…but it does not include the ENTIRE Catholic Church. Those people who participated are evil….

      somehow this got lost in the cracks inadvertently , Nikki… Sorry for the late approval.

      I know the path for me has not been about forgiveness, as that is not my job. I don’t even hold a grudge anymore; only sadness is left. But let me ask you this, Nikki:

      When an individual is arrested and convicted for abusing or molesting children, is he or she ever allowed to work with children again? Do you believe that should even be an option? The Catholic Church is a Corporation that is entrusted with the care of children. It has been convicted, could it be more clear? A Felony conviction strips the individual of his/her rights.

      Let the Church have its masses and confessions and whatever the adults want, then; that’s fine with me; I’ll compromise because adults can defend themselves. I just want them to stay away from children.

      The Catholic Church has proved itself, time and time again, it is not worthy of that stewardship because “those people who participated are evil…” and it employed and far worse, protected them.
