I've removed the picture as the mods that are available today agree that it is offensive, but please don't act like you've never posted an offensive picture.

That is the cover of a German magazine.

I don't recall the controversial Muslim cartoons being removed?
Is there a double standard?

If you are offended by something, report the post. No one ever reported any muslim cartoons, so they obviously didn't offend anyone enough to warrant contacting the mods.

Anyway..

That is quite weak, child rape is offensive not a rational response of highlighting its damage.

Talking about it in this context is plenty fine. We don't need illustrations.

This whole issue is so disconcerting that it’s difficult to get my mind around. There are times when I consider returning to the Catholic faith - as I often miss the traditions and rituals and the veneration of Mary. They bring with them a sense of holiness and a deep mental connection that I don’t experience often in the Protestant faith.
However, this “smoke of Satan” as some have called it prevents me from trusting the Church leadership. How can I trust those spiritual leaders that allowed such horrific abuse to occur? Were abusive priests the minority? Yes. And, had those few priests been removed immediately (if not arrested) and sent to a monastery in the mountains, then I think that most of us would accept that every now and then, a bad priest slips through the system. Even Protestant ministers have their own sex scandals from time to time.

Yet, it becomes more and more apparent that abusive priests were simply shuffled to other parishes and allowed to continue the abuse. This almost seems like it’s an understood behavior, and maybe even consented. What else is one to conclude? Furthermore, to listen to the Vatican “spin” these issues in a manner reminiscent of 1998 Clinton – is downright repulsive.

Perhaps one solution is to allow priests to marry. While I am not stating that married men won’t sexually abuse children – it would expand the “recruiting pool” and maybe bring in a fresh new spirit of trust between the Church and its members.

Hold on there Italian Goddess, a bit of context here please.

"Offensive" pictures I may or may not have posted in the past have never been anywhere close to felicitating a member of the The Deity.

Diemen,

I said my piece.

Thank you.

Meanwhile, in LOLVATICAN news:

Vatican makes attempted ordination of women a grave crime | World news | guardian.co.uk

"Revised Catholic rules put female ordination in same category of crime under church law as clerical sex abuse of minors"

Diemen 07-15-2010 09:53 PM

Because as we all know, it takes a penis to be a good minister of the faith.

For some the world is grinding backwards...:sad:

I wonder what Sinead O'Connor will say? :hmm:

A_Wanderer 07-15-2010 10:30 PM

Grinding backwards from what? Excepting young boys the Catholic Church has never been forward.

BVS 07-15-2010 10:51 PM

Well it WAS just against the rules, now it's a crime...:shrug:

KhanadaRhodes 07-16-2010 04:56 AM

i'm of two minds about this (lol i know right):
- i can't believe they're trivialising clerical sex abuse of minors like this
- i can't believe they're making such a big deal about female ordination

i really don't know which is worse.
