Perhaps they should just consider eating the children. *shrug*

Oh, I'm sure. If one was covering it up, others were covering it up, too.

One thing I love/admire about the LDS Church, is that child abuse is not tolerated one iota: if a Priesthood Holder is found to have a abused a child, he is excommunicated quickly.

Yes, he is encouraged to turn himself, and if he doesn't the authorities are notified, usually by the parents or if need be - church authorities.

It's sad that one would have the thought "that's very admirable," because that should be the rule. Not even the norm, but that there are apparently churches that do NOT do that is just appalling.

So yes, of course that is admirable, and I'm glad to know that about the LDS, but ugh, how sad that it has to be pointed out as admirable rather than "well, of COURSE that's what happens in that situation, the alternative is unthinkable!"

(hope that makes sense)

It makes perfect sense, and it's exactly what I was thinking...

Nonetheless, welcome back diamond.

Point being when one Church claims to be God's Only One and Only True Church, and does things or a lack of things to protect the innocent, it's very disconcerting and speaks volumes.

Therefore it is "admirable" compared to what is the an accepted norm of the world's largest Christian denomination, and it should set off alarm bells to Christians of all other different denominations.

This is why many Catholics have left their Faith.

I also applaud all Faiths that do the correct thing, instead of protecting the perpetrators instead of the victims.

The victims should always come first.

So I agree with diamond. This is a new and scary feeling.

For anyone who can stomach it, there is a heartbreaking documentary about the prevalence of molestation in the Catholic Church called Deliver Us From Evil. I actually wept while watching it. I have no idea how to reconcile the fact that that these people are supposed to be doing God's work with what has happened. How can this happen?

Oh, wow...

Honestly, though, until the organized Catholic church (I'm talking about the institution, not about average everyday Catholic members, just to clarify) actually does something about this whole molestation scandal, I'm really beyond caring about whether or not they're "offended" by something.

I'm not a fan of that cartoon.

But I'm not a fan of what's going on even more.

Still, you could probably swap the crucifix for a statue of the Pope and probably not be far off.
