It amazes my why anyone is sticking with the Catholic religion. What is with this cult? It appears that the Catholic Church’s idea of “reform” is to overturn the laws that make them responsible for priests fucking children.
So – if you are Catholic – how can you justify giving money to an organization that opposes church responsibility for priests fucking children? The church stood by for decades knowing what was going on – covering up what was going on – and not that they are being held accountable they continue to side with child molesters.
You might ask, “Why should the whole church be held responsible for what a few preists did?” The answer is – it wasn’t just a few priests – and – the church knew about it and allowed it. The church took an active part in moving these priests around to cover it up. The didn’t even kick them out. The moved them to a different community where they found new fresh young boys to fuck.
So if the church didn’t know about it – that would be somewhat different. But in this case the church was an active participant. So if the church has to suffer for it – that’s a good thing. It sends a message to other churches that you can fuck children.
I don’t think the penalty is harsh enough because the Catholics still don’t get the message. The are still fucking boys – and they are still transfering and promoting the criminals who are fucking children. Cardinal Bernard Law was reciently promoted to the Vatican after being run out of town in Boston for his role in covering up for priests who were fucking children. This appointment shows clearly that the Church doesn’t take the matter seriously.
If you give money to the Catholic Church – you are supporting priests fucking children.
Bishops Support Move to Overturn Law

(KCBS)–The priest sexual abuse scandal is moving forward on two legal fronts as cases of alleged clergy abuse wend through California courts.
Some Catholic bishops are supporting a request in federal court to overturn a law that allows decades old allegations to proceed.
KCBS reporter George Harris says the so-called Burton Law, named for its sponsor Senate President Pro Tem John Burton, drops the statute of limitations on claims of sexual abuse.
But California Catholic bishops call the law “unconstitutional.”
“All of the bishops in the twelve diocese in California approved taking this position,” said Maury Healy a spokesman for the San Francisco Archdiocese. He says the Burton Law unfairly targets the Catholic Church.
“In January 2003, the bishops issued a statement which warned against the effects of this law,” Healy said.
He says by supporting a challenge of the Burton Law in federal court, bishops are not trying to avoid paying the enormous judgments that have been levied in lawsuits brought by alleged victims. “Portland has paid off 53-million-dollars alone.”
The Southern California U.S. District Court is hearing the appeal of the Burton Law.
