I think you will find humans are the people who do the crimes, therefore human failing. It is not our cats or dogs that are failing us by abusing us.
I think you will find they come from the bible and from God to Moses and that the old testament is a part of Christianity. The new testament didn't make the old testament disappear.
My point was it's a lot more than just a failing.
But a crime is a failing.
From todays Times (England)
A few excerpts:
So two of the names people that was on a list given to him, started to sue him two years ago.
This then backs up the victim on the BBC programme that stated such a list existed and that they were abused.
Then there is this latest shocker!
So now it emerges that the church also openly lied to the police!
There you have it.
An absolute no moral, two faced org that has no moral authority in Ireland any more to preach to us - when in fact they are just as bad, if not worse!
No wonder they are backing Brady now. Birds of a feather are sticking together!
Wonder what Fr, D'Arcy will say about this................oh wait.
Weren't long acting with him when it suited.
It's shocking that this guy still holds his position.
Send the lot of them back to Rome and sell off all their wealth and property in the country.
That would go a long way to paying off the debts the country has and at long last the church could be seen doing some real good before we kick them out the door.
He will resign soon I believe. The pressure is on. He is in charge of an organisation which is seeing it's numbers in decline worldwide, it's mass attendances decline and it's authority being challenged because of incidents like this.
Had they came out and held their hands up and said we are doing our best to rid ourselves of abusive priests then they would have probably remained intact. But they chose to deny, cover-up and hide under the protection of Cannon Law.
By doing this they have let down the good priests, bishops etc and indeed their flock. Pride comes before a fall.
He should be resigned years ago, he'll try and hold out I'd imagine.
What very few good ones can head out to Africa and do good out there.
This country has to move beyond the superstitious nonsense they have been peddling for so long.
There's a good chance that he has considered resigning already, but it's up to that lizard in the Vatican to decide whether or not to accept it.
They're afraid pressure will come on guys higher up the chain I'd imagine.
Mark my words, they will PR spin it.
He will leave the office he holds after some time for "reflection" or some other drawn up PR excuse.
Just like a very recent Chinese dissident who might be allowed leave China for "study" (I hope he gets his wife and kid out too) and that reason being spun for the masses, the Rome Org will dream up some light
