The Vatican is full of retards.

That's about as much as I'm willing to comment on the matter.

You do realize that if women were Priests, they would be around Altar Boys,
would that be advisable.

We all know how these Altar Boys have corrupted otherwise honorable men.

Why put women Priests at risk?

I would propose a new "molestation cap and trade" deal which caps the amount of children every priest can molest, because clearly the current levels of molestation are unnacceptable. Every priest will be able to molest a MAXIMUM of 5 children (or 15 deaf children as they are less likely to tell the authorities) per financial year. Now, these are tradable omongst other priests for a price determined by the market. Eventually, market forces and irrepressible sexual disfunction will drive the price up to very high levels, which will naturally result in preists investigating and trialling new and more efficient ways to molest and keep the kids from running to the authorities. This "kiss and tell" policy that more and more kids are adopting is a disease which has plagued the Church for a while now and that must/will be erradicated.

Hence, of course there will still be the traditional molestation, but children will remain silent due to more efficient and streamlined molestation methodologies (quid quo pro deals such as offering ham sandwiches and blueberry muffins post-rape session could be investigated and tested for viability and effectiveness). This new molestation cap and trade deal will result in the appearance of a much more cleaner and unquestionable Church that deserves its share of the frequent but above all quiet molestation, in exchange for your salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Any opinions ?
Thanks guys,
Stefan
(a concerned Catholic)
Right on !


Didn't Bono just cut some deal with the pope?

I cannot reconcile that notion against what I believe and want for the people I love. End of story.

Ever considered the Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Anglican/Episcopal church? It's basically "Catholicism" minus the Vatican; and, more often than not, they tend to be quite heavy on the pre-Vatican II ritualism. In keeping with the Protestant tradition, though, the specifics of how "Catholic" or "reformed" / how liberal or conservative the services are will be determined by individual congregations (as an aside, the decentralized nature of the Episcopal Church is kind of why the controversies currently brewing in the Anglican Communion are overblown). I do know of at least one here in Toronto that has Marian devotion, for example.

It might be worth investigating, if you're so inclined.

I agree. There is no explanation for this.

I attend a Catholic Church for spiritual reasons only and I admit. I do not like Pope, at all. He is taking the Catholic faith back to the Dark Ages. Child abuse can not be swept under a rug. I don't care who commits this offense. If proven guilty, justice should be served. No exceptions.

The Pope would be surprised as to how many "good Catholic women" in the U.S. use and are all for, family planning and birth control. It's our bodies, he has no right to decide. When or if we want to have children. The same for going against the use of condoms. Any medical care giver can tell you this is proven to help stop the spread of HIV and other STDS.

I think Catholic Priest should be allowed to marry, if they choose to. I grew up in the Methodist faith and most of our Reverends were married and had children. It was nothing unusual to us. I'm almost positive they now have women ministers.

Married women priest would be even better. Since, Mary of Magdeline was the first apostle and closest to Jesus. I think the "Church" was actually passed on to her, not Peter. So, by all rights. A woman should be the Pope.


As you can tell, I am a horrible Catholic. I believe in a mixture of Protestant, Catholic and Buddhist teachings. I am spiritual that's all.

The only dealings I have heard of as to Bono and the Pope. Was when he met John Paul the second and later joined the Jubilee Coalition.

I'd like being Catholic a lot more if they stopped getting involved with politics. But my church has had an anti-abortion sign right on the road for over a year now. It's easier to see than the fucking sign identifying what parish it is. They give out roses for Mother's Day, but they're for supporting "pro-life," not mothers. My mother refused to allow my father to take one to give to her, because that would mean they were inadvertently showing support to the movement our religion shouldn't be involved in.

Religion should be personal and completely, 100% separate from politics, is my point.

No, don't think that was it . It was something else. I am VERY certain Bono doesn't advocate child molestation. Quite the opposite.

I agree.......faith should be about, well just that. Faith. I enjoy the quiet prayer and spirituality of the Mass. The reason I go. I'm not interested in any political agenda combined with religion.

You are right. He doesn't advocate this.

I tried to send you a PM. But, your folder is full.
