Comments on: Over 800 complaints to Austrian Catholic Church sexual abuse commission Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: SteveMD2 Fri, 15 Apr 2011 07:38:24 +0000 Teh church is filth and perhaps the worst criminal organization in the western world.

Back about 1000AD the church stopped priests from marrying, and in the queerest marriage of them all, had the priests married to the church, including getting a wedding ring.

the reason was so the church and not the priests family would inherit his property.

Aand that is a primary component of what led to and continues to lead to sex abuse.

If the church wanted to stop the abuse, they wouldn’t get rid of gay priests but make sure only gays could be priests. This way they could have the priests still married to the church, but getting their satisfaction from other age appropriate partners.

At least one priest tried to put a hit on a kid. One priest told a kid that he was getting him closer to God. Thirteen people killed themselves in Belgium. The pope reprimanded the priest that worked with the authorities before the news broke and then issued a public apology after the news broke. It seems he was more sympathetic towards the fact that the news was discovered. The Catholic Church’s only solution has been to blame the gay community. As if homosexuals outside the church are to blame for the one’s doing what they do within it and as if judgment hasn’t been tried before? And saying that they won’t allow any more homosexuals into the church. Does anyone really believe the men said they were homosexuals when they became priests? Hopefully 2000 years from now when they’re still doing it, society will smarten up enough to say sex should be between adults…PERIOD! But unfortunately, society sees more reward in condemning same-sex consensual adult partners than people who rape children, it always has. It seems few people outside the Church are even paying attention to the crisis anymore.
