The victim asks a key question: “Why do you feel sorry for him and not for me?” I think the whole RCC should face that question and understand a policy that has been and still continues to be profoundly careless of the victims who have suffered terribly. Church authorities have acted and obviously still continue to act immorally and heartlessly. Apologies will not suffice. Clear and compassionate action is the only way to go.

And everything stays the same. That’s not what the Church is for.”
That is *exactly* what the church is for.

Our band is called The Incontinents and we have recorded a single ‘Does He?’ to be tied in with the upcoming papal visit. The song might be somewhat controversial, but it does offer an alternative view of the pontiff and it can be found here: www.myspace.com/theincontinentsuk

(Especially this day and age in a liberal western society) Perhaps there are some pious priests who truly take up “the life” out of a spiritual calling. However, it`s no secret the clerical life has been and continous to remain an escape for the sexually repressed. How is this a surprise to anyone?

I am less afraid of having my children play with pitbulls than hanging around priests.

Unlike the rest of the human race, the officials of the Catholic Church are not shocked or even moved about the rape of Catholic children. That’s the reason we have to look askance at the entire church. Of course, every organization will have criminals. But in this church the supposedly normal people are lacking the natural instinct to feel horror or outrage at the butchering of children. That’s why I have to pose the question, is the entire Catholic Church a pedophile ring? The supposedly innocent lay people have not seemed to notice that their leaders are missing the human component of protecting children. Of course, if their leaders have vowed to never have sex with a woman or bear children, and thereby have nothing to do with raising children and have no knowledge about children, and they are now raping children or protecting those who do, is this not a one true holy and apostolic pedophile ring? Don’t get mad at me. Get mad at the supposedly normal people who say they have committed no crime but are incapable of having any love or honor for children.

Reminds me of the Mafia, the way they’re so loyal to each other, covering up for them. God bless that victim for taping his conversation. They would have called him a liar without it. Nice, noble Catholic leaders that they are. Now, we’ve got to get the rapist behind bars. What’s this trappist monastery thing all about? What makes this rapist think he can call the shots and determine where he spends the rest of his miserable life?? The arrogance of these pretenders is sickening. Time for prison, little uncle.
