GUEST,mgarvey@pacifier.com BS: Catholic Bishop and Priest Scandal (132* d) RE: BS: Catholic Bishop and Priest Scandal 20 Mar 02


I think almost every Catholic is furious at the bishops..and the pope. And I keep having other questions..like how many priests with this insanity have asked for help, or asked to be released from their duties....and if they didn't how did they somehow know they would be protected, when if they had run off to Vegas for a weekend with the choir director they would have been defrocked just like that....They must have somehow known they would be sheltered...and if they knew that, it must have been even more extensive a problem than we even now know....because the higherups must have had the same insanity/crimes.

Remember, the Catholic Church is not exactly friendly towards the idea of any sex at all...even (maybe it has changed in recent years, at least lip service)...married...that was begrudgingly accepted and there were still all sorts of conditions on it.. So how in the world can they /we tolerate child abuse???????? There is such a massive disconnect here I can't grasp it...and I disagree that the Catholic church doesn't produce these monsters...I think that somehow they do...

And what about some of these parents????????? Even allowing for excessive trust etc...who is going to allow their sons to spend nights at the rectory, which happened in at least one of the cases....

there are aspects of the Catholic Church that are totally irrational...the stance on birth control never made a bit of sense and condemned children to poverty, women to exhaustion and often death, and men to lives as slave laborers practically.

And apart from the mess the church is in...and obviously needs to clean up from within and have people outside the church making sure they do...it is part of an overall message to others that crimes, or hurting people in the name of religion will not be accepted......
