    It's not the number- it's how the catholic church brushed it under the rug and overlooked the problem and failed to respond as a business or organization that was decent would respond.

    Joe Paterno = fired (and he didn't even violate anything)

    Catholic Priests = nothing.

    See the issue?

    Now - you could argue that it doesn't make *all* priests bad just like pedophilic school teacher don't make *all* school teacher bad - and would have a valid point.

    The Catholic church is excessively judgmental and intolerant of everyone except for it's own leaders . . . hypocritical to the umpth degree.

    I don't have a problem with the basics of their faith - I have a problem with their inability to be, itself, capable of following it's own rules that it judges others by.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Televangelists are not Catholics. But, as far as atheists asking for donations, yes, they do....

    Yeah I really wonder how much they get? Probably not alot.

    As with any sect in society we all have our nuts.

    I'm an atheist and I don't ask for donations, care about turning anyone else atheist.

    Maybe not, and maybe you personally don't, but that doesn't mean that Atheism as an organized movement doesn't.

    Roughdraft tried to make it sound like they didn't, I corrected him.

    What say you?
    So, men who take a vow to not have sex are lecturing people on sexual matters?

    An overwhelming majority of Catholic women already use some form of contraception.

    And Fox News and the Hannity Hacks see an opportunity to pretend this matters, they care employees of Notre Dame have restrictive health care plans.

    And rape victims should not go to Catholic hospitals, because Jesus thinks that when you dress sexy and drink tequila you get what you deserve. The only morning after pill you need, sweetheart, is prayer.

    Good to know.

    There is no point in bothering those whose minds are already made up with facts. They are out there, including insurance reports, about the reality of clergy abuse across denominations.

    Back to the thread's topic, Hugh Hewitt is among those who wonder if this is a "Boenhoffer moment."

    The President's Anti-Catholic Duck - Hugh Hewitt - Townhall Conservative

    Hewitt also discusses his radio conversation with E.J. Dionne, a known Democrat partisan who is also a devout Catholic and troubled by Obama's actions here.

    Hell, most of them aren't even Christians. They just play one on TV.

    This is a grossly inaccurate, misleading, and dispicable post. I won't address it further.

    There were some mistakes made no doubt, as a catholic i will be the first to admit but I think you are being a little to general. The church is horribly judgmental (ive never heard of them really making any judgements... I never understand where people get that.) and not totally intollerant of everyone else.
