    I am intolerant of child molesters and their supporters. And by following a central authority that has aided, hid, and lied about child molesters in their ranks, that puts them in the supporter catagory for me.
    This doesn't make any sense. The United States government has done some pretty crappy things and all Americans follow its authority. Are all Americans "supporters" of those bad actions? At the same time, the Catholic Church is also responsible for a lot of good things as well. Are all Catholics then supporters of those actions too?

    Rapists say all sorts of sick **** when they're violating others - they say it for theirselves, not for the victim.

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

    In a way, yes we are. Much like the voters are to blame for the current debt crisis because voters keep voting in the same idiots that cause it.

    You're being a partisan hack and people see right through you.

    There is a difference between standing by and supporting. Pedophiles and any Catholic leaders who covered up their wrongdoing are responsible for their own actions. You would be hard pressed to find any Catholic laymen who support pedophilia or covering it up. I suspect the majority of Catholic leaders are the same.

    One can support an idea and institution without supporting the entirety of its leaders, members and doctrines. The idea that Catholics must give up their religion in order to not be supporters of pedophilia or covering it up is illogical just like the idea that Americans must give up their citizenship in order to not be supporters war, legal abortion or other realities.

    religious and bishops co-operate to keep such misconduct from becoming public
    knowledge. The following are uniform practices: failing to investigate indications
    of any sexual misconduct, even with children; failing to supervise properly the
    cleric in his assignment, failing to ensure that the cleric is prosecuted for
    misconduct with children. Once an incident occurs, energy and policies at the
    highest levels of Church authority have been directed to damage control,
    avoidance of scandal at all costs, and efforts to placate and manipulate victims
    and families. The latter often involves intimidation, misleading information, and
    even fraudulent means, if necessary. Policy also involves maintaining the priest in
    a new assignment without proper supervision and without informing the
    congregation where the abusive behaviour usually continues. (Sipe, A W R,"

    I would say my evaluation is accurate.


    You can't demonize a whole group/religion for the actions of some, amirite?

    YES I CAN

    Tolerance?

    The church is completely wrong on this..

    Parents should be encouraged to report molestation to law enforcement NOT the Bishop.

    Its the same sick self serving idiocy that protected the institution of Penn State over the wel-being of the kids, and Paterno was a "devout Catholic"...

    I think he was referring to the fact that some people have chosen to condemn all Catholics not just those involved in pedophilia and the cover up. It's pretty ignorant to condemn all Catholics for the actions of certain Catholic leaders.

    Also, I'm not sure what Paterno has to do with this. People of all denominations or none at all do horrible things. Whatever link you're trying to draw to his Catholicism is just ignorant and a symptom of illogical intolerance.
