Pope Francis said two words that infuriated millions of Christians

Pope Francis’s controversial tenure as head of the Catholic Church took a turn for the worse.

A horrible scandal just rocked the Church.

And Pope Francis responded with two words that infuriated millions of Christians.

People across the globe were horrified to learn of a grand jury report in Pennsylvania that detailed how over 300 priests abused thousands of innocent victims and the Church hierarchy covered up the scandal.

The outrage only grew when the Vatican announced Pope Francis would have “no comment.”

The Hill reports:

“We have no comment at this time,” Paloma Ovejero, deputy director of the Vatican’s press office, told CNN Wednesday.

The grand jury, which listened to testimony from victims and met for two years, released the reportTuesday, identifying more than 300 abusers who are members of the Catholic Church in the state. It goes on to say the Catholic Church covered up the abuse.

“Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades. Monsignors, auxiliary bishops, bishops, archbishops, cardinals have mostly been protected; many, including some named in this report, have been promoted,” the report says.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who oversaw the investigation, explained just how widespread the abuse was, tweetingTuesday, “The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. Their own Secret Archives formed the backbone of this investigation — it’s how Church officials referred to troves of documents sitting in filing cabinets just feet from the Bishops’ desk.”

Pope Francis has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump’s America First immigration policies.

Francis has also repeatedly spoken up about the fake news hysteria surrounding so-called “man made” global warming.

His silence on this horrific scandal infuriated millions of Christians.

They expected a statement expressing compassion for the victims and a pledge to root out predators in the Church and hold them accountable.

Instead they received silence.


  1. During his Balkan trip, he (frank) Said: Pope John Paul a Saint/
    & ” I am the devil”.
    & was corrected immediately. Did you catch that article?

  2. I haven’t cared for him for awhile, now I wonder if he is one of them? i feel like he is a Communist or something, i don’t know but he seems to back the wrong things to be a Christian.

  3. I believe that as a leader this Pope is a bust! One has to wonder whether the hierarchy of the Catholic Church are qualified to elect a Pope?

  4. Protestants will never get it that we don’t worship the Pope. They never have and they never will. They are like the dumdocrats that don’t understand illegal immigration.

  5. You’re implying that Catholics worship the pope as if he were God. Not so. The pope is the elected leader of the Catholic Church and considered the successor of St. Peter, The first pope was elected at the Council of Trent.

  6. The Roman Catholic church is considered a Christian Church. What you mean is a Church that protested The Horrible acts of Clergy going back centuries and identified by Martin Luther. who formed his own church; as a result. What some believe is the POPE may have converted to ISLAM.

  7. OMG the same thing happened years ago
    This is chapter2 of the same thing in the Catholic church. Catholicism needs to go away!

  10. Matthew Scully, former speechwriter for George W. Bush and Sarah Palin identifies himself as “Pro-Animal, Pro-Life.” Catholic Concern for Animals is pro-life and pro-animal. Reverend Frank & Mary Hoffman run the http://www.all-creatures.org Christian vegan website, which is pro-life and pro-animal.

    For Love of Animals: Christian Ethics, Consistent Action offers the reader an introduction to animal rights ethics within a Christian framework alongside directly related sanctity-of-life issues, like the rights of unborn children. The book’s foreword is written by Mary Eberstadt, senior fellow with the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, DC, a devout Catholic who identifies herself as “Pro-Animal, Pro-Life.”

    Author Charles Camosy responds to criticisms from academicians Peter Singer and Lynn White, Jr., that the Christian misinterpretation of “human dominion” (versus compassionate stewardship) is responsible for the current ecological crisis. Camosy indicates that Christianity cannot be blamed if humans with their imperfections distort their own religious teachings, that Christianity did not give rise to the industrial revolution, and that real Christianity — as it was meant to be practiced — is at odds with market-driven ethics and mass consumerism (a point made decades ago by liberal Protestant theologian Dr. Harvey Cox).

    Camosy discusses the the moral status of animals in the Bible from Genesis to the Peaceable Kingdom in Isaiah 11:6-9, reconciling animal sacrifices and Jesus’ miracles like the multiplication of loaves and fishes with the vegetarian view, and downplaying the apostle Paul’s dim view of animals by contrasting his words on animals with those of Jesus. Camosy discusses early Christian saints and other great figures in the Christian tradition. Camosy discusses current Christian teachings on animals, including animal-friendly statements by recent Popes. Subsequent chapters discuss factory farming, eating meat, research, hunting, and pets.

    In 1992, my pro-life friends in Life Chain couldn’t understand my bringing up the issue of animal rights among pro-lifers, and trying to show that the Bible and the Christian tradition support the vegetarian way of life. They compared it to the Pharisees trying to trap Jesus in his own words, whereas I, having researched the long history of animal advocacy and vegetarianism within Christianity, saw it as reasonable and mainstream as someone from a pro-life Christian denomination discussing sanctity-of-life issues with someone from a pro-choice Christian denomination.

    Charles Camosy writes: “About ten years ago I became convinced that, if I wanted to be authentically and consistently pro-life, I should give up eating meat.” The International Network for Religion and Animals (INRA) was founded in 1985, and since then dozens of books have been written on Christianity and animal rights. There is enough of a long history of concern for animals and vegetarianism in Christianity to provide the basis for Christians to be “Pro-Animal, Pro-Life,” but Camosy merely provides an overview of animal rights and animal ethics within Christianity.

  17. Evil is Evil, now its time for the Evil ones to pay for there crimes against all humanity including the Pope he new he is guilty every one of them guilty, I am surprised the fathers of theses children have not taken maters into there own hands as its obvious the Church can rape little children when ever they want. Un real where is child protection services? Beware Catholics Soon the Wrath of Justice will be unleashed on all of you that have let this happen!
    No scripture is required grow a soul a brain, time for Justice is at Hand against the child molestations!

  18. Leviticus 11 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
    Rules About Eating Meat
    11 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, 2 “Tell the Israelites: These are the animals you can eat: 3 If an animal has hooves that are split into two parts, and if that animal also chews the cud, then you may eat the meat from that animal.
    4-6 “Some animals chew the cud, but they don’t have split hooves. Don’t eat these animals. Camels, rock badgers, and rabbits are like that, so they are unclean for you. 7 Other animals have hooves that are split into two parts, but they don’t chew the cud. Don’t eat these animals. Pigs are like that, so they are unclean for you. 8 Don’t eat the meat from these animals. Don’t even touch their dead bodies! They are unclean for you.

  19. When Pope Francis began to show his political preferences in America, I wondered why he would stick his nose in our political policies. He has also made other critical remarks about other American policies. And, no I do not trust him to head the Catholic Church throughout the world. It’s time for him to step down and allow someone else to take the helm.

  20. In School of Compassion, Deborah M. Jones engages with the Catholic Church’s contemporary attitude towards animals. This is the fullest sustained study of the subject in that faith tradition. It begins by exploring the history of the Church’s ideas about animals. These were drawn largely from significant readings of Old and New Testament passages and inherited elements of classical philosophies.

    Themes emerge, such as the renewal of creation in the apocryphal legends, in the Desert Fathers, and in Celtic monasticism. The spirituality of St Francis of Assisi, the legal status of animals, and liturgies of the Eastern Catholic Churches also shed light on the Church’s thinking.

    The British Catholic tradition – which is relatively favorable to animals – is considered in some detail. The second part of the book provides a forensic examination of the four paragraphs in the Catechism of the Catholic Church which relate particularly to animals. Finally, major contemporary issues are raised – stewardship, anthropocentrism, and gender – as well as key ethical theories. The book revisits some teachings of Aquinas, and explores doctrinal teachings such as that of human beings created in the ‘image of God’, and, with a nod to the Orthodox Tradition, as the ‘priests of creation’. These help form a consistent and authentically Catholic theology which can be viewed as a school of compassion towards animals.

    Deborah M. Jones is general secretary of the international organization Catholic Concern for Animals and a Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, with a doctorate in animal theology. She has also worked as editor of the Catholic Herald, deputy editor of Priests & People, as a writer and lecturer, and diocesan adviser for adult religious education.

  21. There is a difference between a catholic church and the holy catholic church. Following God’s teachings is the difference. Some only follow their own, which is not holy. Why is there a pope in the first place? Isn’t that the first commandment, ‘thou shalt have no other gods before me.’ Meaning money and wealth and anything that people worship before or instead of worshiping God. People of the clergy are not perfect, they are just messengers of God. But there is an unspoken rule that people of faith should indeed conduct themselves in a way that is pleasing to God and not distracting from God. Church is the hospital for sinners.




  23. You are ABSOLUTELY correct! MOST child abuse occurs IN THE FAMILY, BY THE FATHER. The Roman Catholic Church has MANY reasons for not allowing Her Priests to marry. Think of the rich man who had to choose between his riches and following Jesus. He chose his riches, as you know. The Church REQUIRES poverty, chastity and obedience, so that She can send Her Priests into the most pagan, anti-Christian and Deadly circumstances, and the Priest will now look back. And to P.B., the rate of “minister abuse” in Muslim and other (protestant) religions is up to twice that in the RCC. Of course, that doesn’t excuse what happened. But The Catholic Church itself is guided by the Holy Spirit, but populated by PEOPLE — SINNERS. All Priests are sinners. Aren’t YOU?

  24. American Catholic Christians are OUTRAGED by the scandal. OUTRAGED! We do our best to worship God, help the needy, perform civic duty, defend this nation and raise our families as Jesus taught us to. To learn that this group of priests committed these horrible offenses against God and PEOPLE, especially “God’s Little Ones” is sickening. How these men were able to become Priests is beyond me, but I hope the true account is published. I am commanded by God not to hate these men. But I can DARN SURE BE ANGRY AS HELL! And I AM. We in the Church build more hospitals, provide more shelter, more food and teach more than ANY other organization on the planet, yet THIS sickening filth drags The Church — ME and my family –into the sewer. It’s not right, and I want it to be fixed!

  25. Fr Tom Martin. The greatest translation error of all time is the change of the feminine Spirit in the Old Testament to an it or he depending on what Bible you pick up.

  26. I wasn’t real happy with women/girls being “second class citizens”, and ALL the “ills of the universe” being blamed on “Eve tempted Adam”. After ALL the Child sex abuse being exposed, by Catholic Priests in USA & Australia, and the Cover-Ups, real glad I’m not affiliated with the Catholic Church.
    Oh, yeah, I was in grade school, when they were telling us that ONLY Catholics were going to heaven- Good Protestants, Good Jews, etc were going to hell. Did NOT agree with that one.

  27. This is NOT a surprise for me. Anybody remember the scandal about priests molesting children in Boston? The then archbishop, who became a cardinal, was TRANSFERRED to Rome, when civil authorities were looking into filing charges, because HE Knew About the Abuse & did NOTHING! Good Movie on this subject, “Spot Light”. News broken by Boston Globe.

  28. “Holy people are most loving and gentle in their dealings with their fellows, and even with the lower animals: for this reason it was said that ‘A righteous man is merciful to the life of his beast,’” explained St. John Chrysostom (AD 347-407). “Surely we ought to show kindness and gentleness to animals for many reasons and chiefly because they are of the same origin as ourselves.”

    Writing about the Christian saints and ascetics, Chrysostom observed: “No streams of blood are among them; no butchering and cutting of flesh… With their repast of fruits and vegetables even angels from heaven, as they behold it, are delighted and pleased.”

    Chrysostom considered flesh-eating a cruel and unnatural habit for Christians: “We imitate the ways of wolves, the ways of leopards, or rather we are worse than these. For nature has assigned that they should be thus fed, but us God hath honored with speech and a sense of equity, yet we are worse than the wild beasts.”

    In a homily on Matthew 22:1-4, Chrysostom taught: “We the Christian leaders practice abstinence from the flesh of animals to subdue our bodies… the unnatural eating of flesh-meat is of demonical origin… the eating of flesh is polluting.” He added that “flesh-meats and wine serve as materials for sensuality, and are a source of danger, sorrow, and disease.” And St. John Chrysostom recommended the “prayerful invocation of the name of God,” which he said should be “uninterrupted.” (I Thessalonians 5:17)

  29. I have always thought it odd that male leaders in the Catholic Church are not to marry! There’s the problem. Glad I am Protestant!

  30. Richard. Schools are run by people who in general deny the existence of God. Their evil actions should not come as a surprise since they have chosen to not have a moral compass but instead do whatever feels good. But when we look at the church who has access to God’s Word to guide it is truly a totally different and far more serious to learn of the depth of the crimes as well as the efforts to cover it up.

  31. You are so right! God made us “humans”, NOT saints. Sex is a normal biological urge that is normal, to be shared between a man and a woman. Expecting celibacy is NOT normal! However, the priesthood is a PERFECT place for homosexuality. A TRUE Christian that loves God should have a wife and Nuns should have husbands. It is the normal expression given to us by our Lord.

  32. Let us not be tempted by the evil one would be more correct. The Old Testament is primarily Hebrew and Aramaic , The New Testament is Mostly Greek. If you can read either you will find that what is said in them is much stronger in judgment of sin than what many of today’s translations are. No translation is perfect only the original is true for the most part. Some Hebrew and Greek words can have as many as twelve different meanings for the same word and must be carefully studied in the sentence structure to determine the proper meaning of the usage.

  33. The church is not a denomination , nor was it started by The Ideas of Constantine. It originated from the teaching of Christ and Judeo teachings. Peter was an apostle. What most people do not realize is that when Christ spoke about upon this rock I will build my church He was referring to himself . He is the cornerstone and the capstone of the church . So that being said there is only one true church and that is the church founded by Jesus Christ through the teaching that he has given in both Old and New testament as He and the Father are one as well as the Holy Spirit . They were are and ever shall be . God is the Creator , preserver and governor of all things . The word tells us that without Christ nothing was created that was created. No created being is to be worshiped . Mary is a created being. Only Christ can mediate between God and man and is the perfect Head of the church.

  34. Obummer not an American. Democrats do not know what tolerance nor free speech is comprised of. obummer will go down as America’s Nero!

  35. A Catholic News Show I was watching the reporter said this: These are not priests. A survey of victims showed 81% of victims were from age 14 pass 18 all the way to Seminary Colleges where homosexual priests were working to get homosexuals into the priesthood because there were plenty of young males in the church, a Church believing everybody gets a second chance to not sin giving caught homosexual men the chance to not sin any more. The laws of all countries would not give homosexual males a second chance any place else. This is not a priest thing it is a homosexual thing male on male and I will bet that broadcasting this little fact will bring the LGBT and all its power and money into a real war with the Church. The Church doesn’t need a public war with LGBT. What it needs is to clean LGBT males who love young males out of the church and its seminaries are the place to start. The true priests are the thousands of priests who believe in Jesus and don’t attack anyone at any age and don’t need to be forgiven for their sins like homosexual males posing as priests demand to be forgiven for sinning. This protection for homosexual males posing as priests needs to be turned over to the police and treated as pure rape as if these males were out in the real world. I think the church rulers who are not homosexual are finally, if not being forced, are realizing when it comes to homosexuals and LGBT the Church needs to accept they are male on male raping even after 18 in the seminaries and hand over the homosexuals to the police after kicking them out of the Church.

  36. It is not the Catholic Church that is wrong , it is the people who run it. Therefore no religion is perfect simply because they are run by men.

  37. Just watched a documentary about how the Catholic Church AND the Pope were working with the Nazis in France years ago!

  38. But I was wondering where you heard this. I think it came from Josephus’ writings. Not sure. You are the first person, besides myself, that I heard claimed this. I believe it. Others I tell don’t believe me. Just curious.

  39. The Christian God is the creator God, Maker of heaven and earth, not anything like the human-made little fat god called Buddha, or even Baal. The Son of God is the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the Way, the Truth, the Life and the ONLY way to heaven. Buddha, like all the other man-made gods have NO saving power! Why I should worship that made myself is beyond my finite understanding.

  40. There is something about him that I don’t trust. He is NOT the kind of person that usually become the POPE. I don’t quite know what it is but he says things that someone in his position should NOT be saying, I really wonder if he is a Communist.

  41. Actually the Jehovah Witnesses are a cult. They really are not a religion. They do not believe in the Trinity or that Jesus is God in the flesh. They don’t believe in Heaven either. So as far as the atrocities they commit? Every time they appear at someone’s doorstep they are helping satan to turn people from hearing the true gospel. The 7th Day Adventists are a satanic cult as well.

  42. But… to continue your mention of politics… what about the corruption at the head of our government? All the scandals during obama’s reign of terror? It is not only the Republicans but libs on the left. I used to be a Democrat until I witnessed Obama proudly claiming his devotion to Islam, Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi trials and Maxine Waters promoting violence. Everyone is becoming unhinged. What happened to tolerance and free speech?

  43. Oh yes, I keep my communist dues current so when we take control I am a member in good standing. You are a nut.

  44. Have you ever read the Bible in Hebrew ir Greek if you had you would know that all translations today have errors.

  45. I was single at the time when I had a preacher once who had been arrested on a sexual transgression toward a young person to tell me I should get married to ward off any temptation. My response to him that his marriage didn’t stop him

  46. How long did it take for you to find the scriptures in your reference Bible to support your interpretation. You cannot quote one scripture and use it as proof if snything. You must have knowledge of traditions, culture and what came before and after the scriptures you quote. Good try.

  47. Well stop watching football and read the news and you would know. Every media in the world carried the story

  48. I do not agree with all he says, but I do not believe the man is a fake. If you were truly a Christian you would not judge what is in the mans heart

  49. I am sure the Pope knows far more about Scripture and relationships with God thank you do. I do not think the media covers Protestant abuse as much as Catholic abuses. You speak with little knowledge of our Church. You are repeating what the leaders of your church said about Catholics.

  50. If the Pope is as smart as most people think, the way out of this mess is to
    let all the Cardinals and Bishops in the Cath. church get married or better yet
    make them get married before they are sworn in to the church, let the preists
    get there urges at home, leave the kids alone

  51. How much thought does a person following Christ need to give to condemn sin. If this happen in a corporation the CEO would give a condemning message the next day.

  52. Father Tom, that the church is the people sounds good but not what the Roman Catholic church is all about. Since about 180AD, the decision was made that THE church was the clergy, mostly the priesthood, and they were to lead and parishioners to follow. That is how it became and remained, the hierarchy, corrupted and let many people into both the priesthood and upper hierarchy who were there for power, or privilege or bought a cardinalship for one large donations. As you said, the people have no say on who will be their priests. I grew up Catholic, and witnessed the continual physical abuse of the clergy, their arrogant attitudes, their all too often, unloving ways.
    The parishioners or “lay people” (second class like nuns) often wear blinders, and in that way, they are part of this cult that mandated how one HAD to go to church each Sunday or be in danger of eternal damnation. In that way, the church people are often like conservatives, demanding strict adherence to their doctrine, and if another Republican should not agree with them in every way, they call them RINOs (heretics) and seek to punish them severely. The most radical Republicans are the Trumpons, who overlook the infidelity, sexual assaults, money laundering, cheating about elections, and undermining the constitution of the USA, especially the 14th Amendment.

  53. You lost interest. That means the Church was not that important as you thought. You would have started taking an active role and protesting if it was really import to you

  54. I do not believe half of what you say. The Protestant minsters are the worse at bad mouthing Catholics, other denominations and other religions. I have never taught or said anything bad about another Christian denomination. In fact you cannot join our Church at an altar call you must understand what we believe and why before you can join.
    Do I believe every word of any denominations doctrine / no I do not. All churches are ran by humans and are fallible.

  55. Without Jesus Christ front and center of your life a lot of humans act out their sinful behavior.

  56. Mary is a wonderful woman for God to choose her to birth His Holy Son here on earth to show us the way to Him, but she is not the Savior, Jesus is the one you and everyone of us should be glorifying; and I pray that we will.

  57. Why don’t you study castration before making foolish statements. That would solve nothing. They should leave that would be the honorable thing to do, but they should be put in jail if caught

  58. your article appears slanted. Good journalism requires mention of the 50 year period which the abuse is spread over. A worse record can be found every where, especially in public schools, but no one wants to look: no bias or money to be made there. They transfer their abusers from district to district.

  59. Yes they are hurting but they need to take a stand and they will not. God expects us to do our part and he will do the rest.

  60. I can understand why the Pope said no comment. Birds of a feather stick together, and he is probably shaking in his boots, that investigations of his sexual actions may come to light, or that finally his will be investigated and
    found guilty. The rapes and sexual assaults are not just an american priest problem, it is the whole priest issue around the world. You have men who have no relationship with Jesus, meaning they are not born again, and you deny them a wife of their own. No, the roman catholic church has not sided with God nor enforced the commands of God. They have sowed seeds of evil and now they are reaping.

  61. The Catholic Church is the Catholic people not the hierarchy of the Church. We all know they have disgraced our Church with the coverup. It is a shame that the lay people have not revolted against the hierarchy. The majority of the priest are Godly men and our leaders from the Pope down to the Bishops are to be accountable for this mess. Many priest warned their Bishops that this was going on and told to keep quite they would handle it. They did nothing but try to hide the truth. Monsignor Jamail was promoted when he was reported. The priest that reported him were punish with being assigned to the worse parishes. The lay people must also accept responsibility for wearing blinders and not holding the Bishops responsible. Our Church should be run by and elected Board in every parish and the priest should answer to them. The people have no say on who will be their priest. A priest council decides where priest will be assigned and you get on the wrong side of them you will get crappy assignments. Some are even bribed for a good parish assignment. I have faith and respect for our church, but not for the hierarchy if the Church. To become a bishop and up it is more about playing politics within the Church than character.

  62. After many years working in the prison system of a very liberal northern state, I can attest that there are just as many Ministers, Rabi, Imam who were just as bad as the Priest, and its covered up as much.

  63. Do you know where the Catholics got the idea of not being able to marry? They think they are following Paul’s example. You know Paul, the greatest Apostle in the New Testament? He never married, but had no desire to marry. He just preached Jesus Christ to whoever God would put in his path. He lived and breathed Jesus Christ. Jesus was his very sustenance. He needed nothing else. That is how we should all live. Unfortunately the Catholics think by living this way it will earn them Eternal Life. They are wrong! If you do not have Jesus in your life this way of living is impossible. But the Catholic church adopted this ritual & promotes it. This priestly living is just an excuse for gay men and women who are embarrassed to admit they can’t marry but secretly have their homosexual appetites met.

  64. T.Yoder which Bible do you refer to? There are several versions of the Bible. The simple statement that he follows a “god” and not “GOD” makes me wonder if your just one of those who think my brand “X” God is better than your’s. God is God. No one God is better than God they are all the same. The difference is in how you as man interpret the Bible and worship.

  65. When you realize that there is no last Pope ,And you hypocrite believe it, Two Thowsand yers and going,well The Holy Spirit is può the church,and these evil doing happened even before Pope Francis, Ho by the way,Emaritus Pope Benedict for The anti Catholics was the last pope and the Antichrist,????????????????????

  66. This is a fake than any Other fake I eard,Pope Francis said he sorry for all the horrible things happened,and that the church let them down foe all these years,You are a disgrace to spread hate and lies about our Pope Francis,and to all us Catholics,with the help of the Almighty God and the Blessed Mother will survive,way you don’t mention the 170 lawsuits against the jeova witnesses in New York,no that don’t make news ,

  67. God is separating the wheat from the shaff.God is going to take care of his children and he knows that our Catholic Brothers and Sisters are hurt from this. I pray that God will comfort them with his love.

  68. I also heard that this pope is the last. Then the anti-christ will come into power. Is this what you found out? I am very curious. Thanks.

  69. “The same desires as other men”????? You mean that (all) other men have the desires to sexually abuse children?

  70. This is a Pope that has to say something negative immediately about Trump and positive about what Muslims are doing to Europe, Scandinavian countries and the Middle East and he says, “NO COMMENT”. Sounds more like, “What does it matter”.

  71. If any catholic took their heads out of the sand and were truly aware of all the scandalous things the catholic church has allowed in the past, turned a blind eye to, and participated in, they should be appalled!!! The church itself, and by that I mean the leaders of the church, has participated in enough atrocities that prove that it’s so-called religion is a farce. It is one of the biggest lies perpetuated on the human race. They, leaders of the catholic church, cooperated with the nazis; hate the Jewish people, and, I know this from personal experience lie about other religions IN WRITING. A big (dark, cold feeling) catholic church on Victoria Street in London has brochures inside bad mouthing EVERY OTHER Christian religion and telling lies about them. They actually take a part of a sentence from other religion’s beliefs, add part of a different sentence, and put them together as one sentence, totally bastardizing what the other religion’s statements or beliefs actually are. This is done very deliberately; the writer knows that the catholic brochure is full of lies and yet obviously has no conscience about it. The lies are deliberately put out there by the catholic church.

  72. I am one of those commenters outside the Catholic faith; I am Southern Baptist and we have had some of our own to commit similar sins. It is still not right, and “no comment” is totally unacceptable.

  73. Dont forget that this idiot pope embraced a multi murderer, Abbas, called him a prince of peace, and recognized a Palestinian terrorist state.
    Abbas, who pays Arabs to murder Israelis, then calls them heroes and pays the murderer and family, money
    So he encourages murder.
    I am sure that when the pope and Abbas dies, they will never meet the True God.
    They will spend eternity with Satan, and may it be soon

  74. good question! I guess his wall is to protect his ass from angry parents. Of course he does have body guards also.

  75. When I was a college student, I had a married preacher who had been arrested on a sexual exploitation of a teenager to tell me that I should get married to avoid such situation with me. My response was that his marriage didn’t keep him from such endeavors. When he was found out, he had to resign and move away. I never knew what has happened to him even up to this day, and I really don’t care if I ever know.

  76. WOW! How sad that it took all of these years to find out how much of our world is fake!!! We don’t need to wonder about other governments & terrorism THAT became news when #44 was in office & NO ONE did anything about the atrocities he did!!! WHY? Isn’t #44 in jail he is the epitome of a traitor & murderer along with many who served under him!!!!
    I pray daily for all of my Catholic brothers & sisters that they would wake up & realize that their man made laws are just that man made who are they to change the rules of ALMIGHTY GOD to suite their needs??? May GOD have mercy on them all…however…there is one thing that perplexes me through all of this??? Where were the Sister’s the nun’s who ran the schools they had to have seen these atrocities going on or were they being molested as well & too ashamed to come forward?? I know I would but still they should’ve regardless to save those children if for nothing else…what could have happened to them???

  77. If the priest can’t be true to and obstain from sex they need to leave the church or be casterated. And this wont happen.

  78. When are the catholics going to realize what a NWO operative he is & sucks up to the islamics for one thing ? If his “flock” follows his advice , it will only get them raped , tortured & murdered by the muslims and other worthless criminals , including his own priests . This street guy is no Pope Urban II , that started the crusades against Islam . He is more like soros’ NAZI attitude against humanity!

  79. “The same desires as other men”????? You mean that (all) other men have the desires to sexually abuse children?

  80. Good thing he’s the last Pope the world will ever see. I don’t think we could take another one after him.

  81. He could be one of the pedophiles of the church i knew a ex-prest that went to france and italy and guit the prest hood over this same issue that was 35 years ago.

  82. Quitting the Church should be a personal choice, not one that is directed by another…or an outsider of Catholicism. I wonder how many of these commenters are of the Catholic Faith? Certainly, these crimes should be addressed. It just does not have to be done by bestanders or Monday night QBs. .

  83. If you were truly aware of all of the scandalous things Pope Francis allows or turns a blind eye to, or participates in, you would be appalled! He has been aware of many evil practices taking place throughout the world and REMAINS SILENT! I never will trust his humanism and liberalism.

  84. The Catholic Church is the richest business in the world, so yes they could support married Priest and their families.

  85. Pope Francis should retire/resign/or be fired…..he is not helping the Catholic Church……send him back where he came from as fast as possible.

  86. Yes, I agree they should be allowed to marry, THEN just maybe, U won’t see the ignorant people raping these little kids, thisgolks is absolutely horrible thing to do to theselittle kids, for God’s sake!!!n These damn so-called priests should be prosecuted to fullest extent of the LAW!

  87. The vast majority of the scandal is related to homosexuality. Marriage does not solve the problem of homosexual attraction.
    There are vast numbers of priests who are neither homosexual nor are they sexually active. They are chaste only through a life of prayer and intimacy with God because they are set apart to have an undivided heart. This is the basis for men to be celibate in the manner of Christ in his Church.

  88. Good people are not Catholic because of this Pope. They are Catholic because of the profound conviction of the real presence of Jesus Christ on our altars. Real Catholics cannot abandon the Real Presence of God on our altars and the call to “Eat my Body and drink my Blood. For my Body is real food and my Blood is real Drink”. Real Catholics understand their need for Christ and will not abandon him when he is being betrayed by his Apostolic successes.

  89. T. Yoder, You wrote: “He’s not following God! He’s following a god, but it’s not the Lord God Almighty. You are correct. He is following the Catholic originated non biblical word, trinity as a complete god.

    Here is how your Lord God Almighty appears twice 4-ways like the Cross in Revelation 4: 7-8:
    7. And the first creature [was] like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face as of a man, and the fourth creature [was] like a flying eagle.
    8. and the four living creatures, having each one of them six wings, are full of eyes round about and within: and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.

    Can you SEE this Lord-God-Almighty Cross?
    1. On the foot: Holy who was
    2. Next clockwise: Holy who is
    3. Next on the top: Holy who is to come
    4. Last on right: Lord God the Almighty

    If you cannot SEE this cross do not click my name above to take the SEE-God quiz.

    Wake up. Be free.

  90. I think you are being very hard on the Pope. I think it was wise of him to postpone saying anything until he thought how to address it. This is a very serious situation and speaking off the top of your head can be more harmful to the situation. I am not fond of this Pope; there are other Popes I liked better. But we have to give him some slack for not responding right away.

    I’ve always thought that priests should be married, just like those in other faiths. It is not natural, in my thinking to be celibate. However, marriage and children would be monetarily unsupportable in the Catholic church.

  91. Religion is what happens to the word of God when man puts his two cents in defining the Bible or some other belief. I do NOT follow any “organized” religion, only the word of God as written in the Bible.

    Religion is simply defined as “the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods” or “a particular system of faith and worship.”

    I am a student of all religions… The God of the King James Bible is the only God that makes any sense. I can attest that Jesus Christ is God the creator of the heavens and the Earth and all life in it.

    Consider the fact that the Bible is comprised of 66 Books written over a period of about 1,500 years by over 40 authors from all walks of life, with different kinds of personalities, and in all sorts of situations.

    It was written in three languages on three continents, and it covers hundreds of controversial subjects. Yet, it fits together into one cohesive story with an appropriate beginning, a logical ending, a central character, and a consistent theme.

    How does one begin to explain such historical, structural, prophetic, doctrinal, and spiritual congruency (harmony) apart from the fact that its real author was/is Divine?!

    All Scripture is inspired by God.. Over 2500 times the Bible says Thus saith the Lord..

    2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that all Scripture is inspired by God. The Greek word for “inspired” is derived from another word meaning “God breathed.” God inspired or revealed to men what to write, so when we read the Bible, we are literally reading the words of God.

    Men were in the process but it didn’t originate with them and it didn’t come from their desire and their will, they were used as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit and enabled to speak from God. They spoke divine words. God used them. It was their personality. It was their background, some of their insights, their experiences, their perceptions, but ever word was the word of God. That’s the miracle of inspiration. Men…they were used…carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. That’s what the Scripture says.

    In 2000 years there will be people that say Abraham Lincoln never existed!

  92. So which one of the God head do you NOT believe in? God the father, God the son and or God the Holy Sprit?
    Believe whatever you like, it’s your fundamental and inalienable human right. You can find MANY Bible verses where one or more are mentioned.

    There is only one God, one truth, one way, one creator of heaven and Earth Jesus Christ and you can read all about him in the King James Bible.

    I hope this helps clear things up…. God the father God the son and God the Holy Sprit are ONE and the same God… In 3 separate individuals. All are equally God…3 individuals one God…

    All three are represented here in one verse…

    Mark 1:10 9In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10As soon as Jesus came up out of the water,he saw the heavens breaking open and theSpirit descending on Him like a dove. 11And a voice came from heaven: “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”…

    Again…..All 3 are manifested in these 3 verses. Unless you think Jesus was a ventriloquist? God # 1 Jesus coming up out of the water. God # 2 Hearing his voice coming from heaven saying “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”… And God # 3 the Holy Spirit in the forms of a dove..”he saw the heavens breaking open and the Holy Spirit descending on Him like a dove.”

    John 14:16

    And I will pray the Father, and “HE” shall give you another Comforter, (the Holy Spirit) that he may abide with you for ever;

    John 16:7

    Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, “I” will send him unto you.

    John 3:16

    16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

    Isaiah 61 King James Version (KJV)

    61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

    2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

    Luke 4:18

    18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

  93. Well, he’s a Jesuit – no surprise here. This’s what happens when people follow unsound doctrine, man’s rituals, rules & traditions & don’t read God’s Word for themselves. If you don’t know God or His Word, how can you follow it? Pretty hard. People NEED to think for themselves, instead of believing everything this guy says. He’s not following God! He’s following a god, but it’s not the Lord God Almighty. His god’s worthless.But people have no excuse for not reading the Bible for themselves – most people in this country have at least 1 Bible in their home; they CHOOSE to NOT read it. They choose to believe The Lie & embrace darkness. Go figure…

  94. Brenda: When did this pope rape children? What did I miss…when was he convicted? Nothing however would surprise me with him.

  95. Disagree…if this were Protestant minister if this were published at all it would be on the back page buried in the news media…The Catholic Church as been attacked ever since its origin…and thankfully, God has helped us to overcome it all and still maintain our beliefs.

  96. I still keep the faith…go to church to honor and pray to God…disregard ALL priests but there are some good ones I feel sorry for…pity the victims and what does the Pope have to say that will put a stop to this evil? NOTHING.,

  97. same old, same old Catholic church! All they did before was move the offender to a new diocese…where they had free rein to start all over! Worst punishment? OH! They sent them to a retreat…….to pray! Ungodly behavior all the way around.

  98. Rick. I believe your explanation of three entities in Mark 1:9-10 is flawed. I have always seen the Spirit descending on Him (from heaven) and the voice from heaven being the same entity— the Most High Holy Spirit of Light from heaven.
    I cannot figure out how you get three entities from either Mark 14:62 or John 17:7.
    What I do know is that there are four descriptions of Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist: Mat 3:16, Mark 1:10-11, Luke 3:22 and John 1:32 that fit on the cross. This is because EVERYTHING for God must make passage through the cross, just as the New Testament must begin with four Gospels on the cross: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and just as the foundational 1st verse in the Bible is a cross.
    Jesus died on the cross and spent three days in the grave to show us this 4-way divine pathway on the cross to afterlife. There was day 1, day 2, day 3 then the 4th step result—he arose with afterlife.
    There are over 250 examples that describe this 1, 2, 3 result pathway to God the Father that the Trinity Doctrine does not support. Unfortunately Christianity has inherited this triune god from the Catholic Church.
    Be free.

  99. Bruce–where can I read about this? I had not heard this before (near arrest, etc)

  100. While the word “trinity” meaning “three” is not in the Bible…. The doctrine of the Trinity affirms the eternal unity of all three persons of the Godhead IS in the Bible, in SEVERAL PLACES!

    For example. Mark 1:10- 9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10As soon as Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens breaking open and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove. 11And a voice came from heaven: “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”…

    All 3 are manifested in these 3 verses. Unless you think Jesus was a ventriloquist? God on Jesus coming up out of the water. God 2 Hearing his voice coming from heaven saying “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”…
    And God 3 the Holy Spirit in the forms of a dove..”he saw the heavens breaking open and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove.”

    Mark 14:62

    61But Jesus remained silent and made no reply. Again the high priest questioned Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?” 62“I am, said Jesus, “and you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.” 63At this, the high priest tore his clothes and declared, “Why do we need any more witnesses?…

    John 16:7

    7But I tell you the truth, it is for your benefit that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. 8And when He comes, He will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:…


  102. I was raised in the Roman Catholic Church and attended 12 years of Roman Catholic Church from 1950-1962 all prior the sinister, superfluous and totally premeditated vagary and ambiguity that was ushered in to the Roman Catholic Church under the false flag of an Ecumenical Council.The purpose of this engineered council [which was a pastoral council and not a dogmatic council] was to set in motion the weakening of the roam Catholic Church from the inside out. Today, the once Holy; Catholic; and Apostolic Roman Catholic Church suffers so much from the premeditated “Smoke of Satan”
    inhalation that save for remnants no longer exists as part of the grand design to force on the world one world government supported by one world religion meaning that the once morally Roman Catholic Church must become subsumed from within and transformed over time into something it was never intended to be. Today’s RCC is more like a mere social uplift union; yet another in a long list of Protestant denominations; and a political party campaigning for votes by telling parishioners what they want to hear so as to not “offend” those who should be offended as we all frolic around the campfire condoning each others sins – especially GRAVE PUBLICLY CELEBRATED SINS.

  103. Miguel Gonzalez………… Did you score a zero in your reading comprehension skills test or did you not read my entire post? Firs of all it is NOT my translation it is the King James translation. You also seem to be under the false impression the God does NOT lead us into temptation?

    As I said in the above post the Bible says that “in the book of Job, God gave permission to Satan to test (tempt) Job. I guess the “Holy Father” needs to read the bible.”

    I also said, “God gave us all “free will” so why would this man want to change the word of God from “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” to “Do not let us fall into temptation?”

    This would remove free will from us and give it fully to God! God loves us so much he gave us the choice to choose for ourselves.. I prefer that God “Leads me” instead of “forcing me….”

    The Bible also says, “Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil” (Matthew 4:1).

    So God does not do the tempting—he does not put evil desires in our hearts (for he can have no evil desires in his heart)—but he does bring us into the presence of many tests and temptations. “A man’s steps are from the Lord” (Proverbs 20:24).

    In fact, every step we take is a step into the presence of temptation. There is no moment of your life that is not a moment of temptation—a moment when unbelief and disobedience is not a possibility.

    The Lord’s prayer does not teach us to pray against that kind of sovereign guidance.

    What it teaches us to pray is that the temptation does not take us in. Don’t lead me into temptation. Deliver me from this evil that is set before me.

    Today I will stand before innumerable temptations. That’s what life is: endless choices between belief and unbelief, obedience and disobedience. But, O mighty God, forbid that I would yield. Hold me back from stepping inside the temptation.

    In Genesis 22:1, the Hebrew word translated “tempted” is the word nacah, and it means “to test, try, prove, tempt, assay, put to the proof or test.” Because it has so many possible synonyms, we must look to the context and compare it to other passages. As we read the account of the event, we note that God did not intend Abraham to complete the sacrifice of Isaac. However, Abraham did not know that and was willing to carry out God’s orders, knowing that if God did require this, He was able to raise Isaac up from the dead (Hebrews 11:17-19).

  104. hicusdicus…….I believe in an all knowing omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent living loving God. You athiests must believe in the alternative. That all life came to be from a rock/pond scum i.e. via “speciation” without a brain somehow created millions of different plant and animal lifeforms on this planet and you think what I believe is “fiction” LOL!

    If you do NOT believe in God. Then how did we get here? If God “Jesus” could light the sun with just one word, why is coming back from the dead so hard to believe? You must have a single digit IQ.

  105. There are still priest getting away with this and being transferred. There was one in The Woodlands, TX with red hair that did this. He had an apartment in Galveston, TX that no one knew about because NO ONE but him was allowed to get the mail out of the mailbox. However, one secretary got the mail one day and found the secret apartment rent bill. Not sure where this pedophile is now, but sure he will molest again. Hope he is not in your parish. But there are a zillion good and holy priest out there. I am not a fan of this pope either.

  106. If pope is man of GOD, he has no idea who GOD really is. Oh how he will answer some day.
    He is what they call a false prophet, leading his flock astray

  107. I’m catholic and very disappointed in this “man of God”. He is not like any other predecessor. I never thought he should be so adored by many foolish Catholics wherever he goes. To my view he is fake and evil and should be thrown out of the position as pope. Does not deserve the title or the adoration by foolish people. May God forgive him.

  108. I grew up in the 40’s abd 50s and I attended a church when I got older. However, I always wanted to be Catholic because it seemed like the Catholic Church was always there when someone or a catastrophe happened. However, I never did join. But after Pope Francis became the Pope, I lost a lot of my desire as I thought he became a politician instead of a Pope

  109. The Priests, Popes, Cardinals are just men that have the same desires as any other man on the planet……..They have taken advantage of the system (our laws) and thought they were beyond reproach…..They have been doing this for too many decades, centuries.


  111. Christina you are so right. However which Bible? There are about 1000 different publications. The American Standard Version (ASV) pub 1901 is the only one which has not been modernized, muddied and corrupted.

  112. The Pope is supposed to be a man of God, who has a living relationship with God, is born again, and not just a member of the club. Unfortunately, this pope is a total fake. His words and his silences tell it all. They are the fruit he bears, and by this fruit he is exposed for what he truly is. Time for the cardinals of the church to come to Jesus and then take out this fraud. If he were a protestant pastor, the news media would have a field day until he resigned and stepped down. Don’t fear him, he has no power over you unless you give him that power. He is simply an unrepented man, who is ignorant about Jesus and needs to be born again. Until that day, he will continue to speak and do evil. Christians of the world pray for this pope to come into relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

  113. The Doctrine of the Trinity is not biblical. The word “Trinity” is not written in any Bible. The Catholic Church teaches the Trinity is only a 3-fold god.
    The 4 entities in the phrase “make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” is written together only in Mat 28:19. Instead of a partial verse, this complete scripture verse describes a cross with all nations (all living humans) unified at the foot of the cross. Adam called his wife Eve because she was the mother of all living humans in Gen 3:20. Evening and eve is the same word in Hebrew and English.
    When one understands and believes God is four like unto a cross, the Lord’s Prayer is answered: For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. That is to say on the cross—For thine is the (1) kingdom on earth as it is in heaven, (2) the Glory of the Son,(3) the power of the Most High Holy Spirit of Light (4) forever the Eternal Father.
    Be free.

  114. Many like Joe B, some of Hilary’s cronies, Hollywood stars, etc. and the Pope included were sporting a black eyed shiner on their face which is part of the pedophile cult his “no comment ” just validated his own guilt

  115. In the Bible, divorce and re-marriage is prohibited by Christ. Sodomy was severely punished. How many non-Catholic denominations still respect these matters? It is not the Catholic Faith that is to blame, but those within it who have betrayed it without leaving. At least Martin Luther had the good grace to leave when he could not fix things that were going wrong. Those who have betrayed the Church in these times need the boot, size ten or more, on their perverted butts.

  116. Good Catholics are certainly not following him. He is an embarrassment to us, as are all those renegade priests who have betrayed their calling, and who richly deserve the millstone treatment. Millions of Catholics want their departure. Deserving greater punishment are those who subverted the seminaries which inflicted this scandal upon us. The rest of society – the politically correct brigade – is not blameless in this matter, because they have attacked Christian principles without a break for decades. Now they try to attack the Church for the very behavior which they have espoused.

  117. pope Francis has been charged with raping children, so what could he tell the public about other priests thur-out history of catholic church raping children. satan priests as well as satans church GOD IN HEAVEN EXPOSED SATANS CHURCH

    If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION

  118. Get a life .. I don’t know what your Smoking .. but it sure
    Has clouded your true vision… God Help You ..
    ????????????????????????????????????????????????& GOD BLESS AMERICA????????????????????????????????
    Bob … From Florida. AMEN ????

  119. I agree 100%! Who is to say that when he was a priest that he didn’t do the same thing? I know there are Good Christian people in the Catholic church but I also believe that tbey are following a man and not Jesus Christ! The people have been lied to for generations upon generations!

  120. This Pope is a Luciferian. All the rhetoric he has been professing the last few years confirms that fact. He denounces Jesus now and speaks of this New Savior to come instead. He sits in the center of an altar that displays a tree with multiple branches that are adorned with severed body parts surrounding a figure that is supposed to be Jesus but, it obviously is NOT. Everything right there in plain sight that nobody seems to notice or question at all today. The blind followers that are supporting this Pope don’t have a clue at all even with all the Sinister and Suspicious lies he professes now on a daily basis twisting the true meanings of scripture by tailoring it all with New World Order Idiotology that the Elites are trying to desperately shove down our throats with their latest campaigning efforts to bring about the One World Dictatorship and their One World Money that they will CONTROL to no end. Say goodbye to all the cash and any wealth you thought you had in the One World Dictatorship,which is coming to a neighborhood near you sooner than you think my friends. This Pope supports all of the New World Orders Agenda instead of God’s Word and Mankind’s True Destiny. The Catholic Church is NOT at all what we have been led to believe it really is. All along it has been just a lie orchestrated by Hard Core Luciferians distracting us from the Truth. The Pope and his right hand man and also the leader of the Jesuits were all 3 convicted of Child Abuse,Child Trafficking,and Murder. The plot to cover all of this up was Intricate and Extensive to say the least. The Truth is a Lie that hasn’t been found out yet.

  121. hicusdicus, IF you are referring to Jesus dying and coming Back from the dead, I have news for you, Jesus DID Die for ALL and Jesus DID come Back from the dead and WILL return when it is time for Him to return. Jesus has NOTHING to do with any of this at all. Jesus is just as ANGRY that this is going on as the rest of us are.

  122. Why does every body look for the Pope to be innocent or a supposed untouchable human being, just because he is Pope! It would stand to reason if there are 300 abusers in one state, can you imagine how many abusers there are in the world! Men of God, no matter what religion, have done terrible things to people through the ages and nothing happens to them, simply because they are protected either by their bosses or by someones army or police force! I believe though, that Catholic men of God have been caught more often, but gotten away with their criminal activities simply because they were rich enough to pay off the justice systems that abound in this country and the world’s governments!

  123. This is nothing new, it has been going on for more years than the church wants to think about. It has been brought on by the church and Popes who said the Priests cannot marry. God never said anything about them not marrying, that was the church that decided that. Man put religion in religion, not God. The Bible says to, “Go forth be fruitful and multiply.” The Bible also says on children, “For anyone who hurts even a hair on the head of one of them, it would be better for that person to never be born.”

  124. Anybody who believes that that somebody died and then brought himself back to life will believe anything.

  125. Shane, Correct and also in 1 Timothy the Bible says,” There is one God and one mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus.” Clearly, as you said, that does not include prayer to a Catholic saint, the pope or a priest, and none of them have the power to forgive us or to give us the gift of salvation.

  126. What pagan idolatry are you talking about? Saints are considered heroes of the Church. A statue of a saint is no different than erecting a statue to to a famous national hero. We do not worship idols or saints. Catholics believe that saints have a special relationship with God, can intercede on their behalf, and God can work miracles through them.
    That being said, Christianity, as we know it today, was heavily influenced by Roman sensibilities and traditions. When the Roman Empire moved to Christianity, they had to make it palatable to the general population. IOW, Christianity, and. for that matter, Judaism, as we know them today, are in a form that the Roman empire was willing to accept. Most of the Churches founded by the other apostles didn’t survive the Roman purges or the destruction of Jerusalem. Some of them were very militant anti-Roman and didn’t even want to accept gentiles in their ranks..

  127. How right you are Shadow. The passage you refer to says, ” Suffer the children to come unto me, and forbid them not the Kingdom of God.” I don’t read and do not forbid the priests pleasure of molesting them. Too many priests are blinded by their own passion, and too self centered to obey Gods word.

  128. I would not call myself a Biblical scholar but I have studied it and compared what the Bible says compared to actual history. Again it is not my place to judge, but when you compare what the present pope is pushing, and how he has tried to attain political power, it certainly appears that he and his actions fall in line with the teachings of what the anti-Christ will do and how he will attain power. He spends more time trying to push his agenda relating to world affairs and governments than he does protecting our children from the evils that have been exposed in the Catholic church. Given his taste for power and ruling the world I would hope the Catholics would demand his replacement.

  129. In Spanish, the same translation , let us not fall into temptation”, is used. “Lead us not into temptation” implies that God would lead us into temptation.
    Remember one thing. The modern day versions of the Bible are translations of translations from the original Aramaic. So, notching about one version, or claiming that your particular version is the “correct” version, seems time to be kind if arrogant.

  130. Right near the top as a perpetrator of one of the Crimes of the 20th Century, that continues into the 21st century! In some respects, the RCC would qualify as a vast criminal organization making it eligible for prosecution under RICO statutes. This Pope is complicit Better yet would be an international Tribunal to try them for crimes against humanity. This is not an anomaly, it is an infestation of debauched homosexual depravity.

  131. And you all wonder why people are turning away from the Catholic Chuch? War on Christianity is because of these Evil perverted men and women that are hiding behind The Chuch as a priest just so they can pray on the innocent children that attend the Catholic schools and churches. They all should be arrested and sent to prison and then castrated. Like all of these child molesters are.

  132. Of course the MSM has Failed Again to inform their viewers, that the Pope was almost Arrested, but the Swiss guard that protect him beat the arresting officers, and allowed the Pope to escape back to Rome, You can bet he will not be leaving Rome any time soon. He is involved with this Pedophile mess as much as the priests in PA. Has any one heard of the Popes decisions regarding Catholics? Look it up. You will be speechless. I never thought I would be calling the Pope a Pedophile.

  133. How many times has this occurred in the Catholic Church? I don’t want to infringe on their actual style of worship, but no comment from a Pope who’s well known for commenting indicates that there’s no plan to change things. The first thing would be to begin protecting the children and put the offending priests in prison after being excommunicated. Their church should expose these priests to existing law in each country! Many years ago, I became friends with a local Catholic Priest. In our conversations, we discussed our individual beliefs. He was a kind man who’d come from Spain. I was about thirteen years old. Maybe things have changed, but I have had a lot of Catholic friends over my life time, and I respect them all. I’ve also been friends with several priests since Gather Santimassas. It might help to have married priests, whom might have children of their own, and a wife. St. Paul didn’t identify the reason he was single, but the assumption that he never was married might be because his wife had died and he didn’t think another wife would fit into his life. What ever the reason, we know more about Paul than any other new Testament writer, or at least we think we do.

  134. A movie a few years back about a laundry for unwed mothe rs, run in Ireland for a century or so. Abuse of the girls by the mean old nuns, and sexual abuse by the priests. Worked nearly to death and nearly starved.Excellent film based on true story. Just one of many examples. This pope is a globalist servant of satan. If they hate Trump, it tells me who they really are.Mostly they all hate Trump with one consent. Be they rinos , popes, heads of state, or info tech giants. They are filled with an unholy spirit. Trump isn’t perfect, but he’s real, and he’s really for Israel. That’s why the devil and all his minions hate him. It’s not rational, but that’s how it is.

  135. James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. Also Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. In other words pray to God for guidance. John 18:38 Jesus said, My Kingdom is not of this world”. Beware most churches are but branches of the tree of Catholicism, if the tree is dead, what of the branches?

  136. Valerie we are alll still sinners. We still live in a human body. That’s what I try to tell people whom trash President Trump over things he might or might not have done several years ago. But Bill Clinton and his crooked wife get a pass.

  137. The reason we have so many religions? Because people rely on someone else reading the “Bible” and then teaching you what they think it means? The “Bible” is meant to give each person that reads it their own personal message about why we are here on earth and what we are expected to do to get to heaven. I strongly suggest you read the “Bible” for yourself. Do not depend on a certain church or pope or pastor to mislead you. Okay … God only asks that you love him like a father. Easy to do. Give him your problems. Allow him to solve them. Be grateful for everything you have. My luck totally changed the day I began Praying and asking for guidance. It’s good stuff. Read it for yourself start anywhere.

  138. The pope and the vatican are going down. Many good Christian catholics will be heartbroken. It is very important for the True Christians who have never worshipped the Catholic church but are the True Army of God, be ready to receive these people into our churches…the churches not defiled by the 501c-3 agreements with the sinful deep-state government. We will have a great revival and many with truly accept Jesus Christ the Redeemer as their Savior. This will happen soon…Christian , be ready!!

  139. When is Pope Francis going to tear down his wall around the Vatican and let migrants move in? He demands that of us, but he should lead by example.

  140. Rome and the Catholic Church, is the Prostitute who rides the Beast in Revelation 17:1-18. She is the prostitute who sits by many waters. She is the beast that once was, now is not,and yet will come. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. The are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come,he must remain for only little while. The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction. The waters where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. The woman is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth. This church is very rich, if it wanted to it could feed all the hungry people of the world. Instead it horades its wealth. It is bound by mans laws not God’s laws. It changed the fourth commandment Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall do no work. The Lord made everything in six days, but He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. God did not change the seventh day Sabbath to Sunday, man did. Rome has acted this way since its conception, from the emperoies to the popes, they have been homosexuales, pedifiles, they committed incest, murder. They killed the people of the true church and run them underground. But there are still some people that know the truth and keep all of God’s laws and His Commandments.

  141. God loves all his children, including you. Issue here is how do you receive salvation? We, every last one of us are sinners. As Catholics we are taught. We must confess our sins, we must repent from our sins, and we must vow never to do the sin again. We must do penance. Family’s in America have been betrayed. The trust in our leadership is being lost. I as a pediatricibinum nurse would loose my job, loose in’s.my license and go to jail if I did abuse any one that way. The clergy of our church must understand that. Your parishioners be to trust that at minimum, remove all who are involve from their position and leadership . It’s too bad that we have a shortage of priests. Figure it out. You have a whole group of parishioners That you will not consider for the prie hood. That is the strong Christian woman of our Parishes. You need to take action NOW. You have lost m any parishioners. This will distory the Catholic Church.

  142. This is the main reason I left the Catholic religion. As a mother of 4 I could not stomach this scandal. I felt betrayed by the Catholic Church and became afraid for my children. I don’t think this was what Jesus had in mind when he said “suffer the little children unto me.”

  143. Pope Francis weighed in against the death penalty, which is an important issue to leftists, but stayed silent on a referendum in Ireland to repeal the nation’s abortion ban.

    It passed with 65 percent of the vote while the leader of the Catholic Church sat on his hands.

    While the death penalty was carried out in 23 cases in America, 2017 saw well over 300,000 babies killed in Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills.

    Traditional Catholics were appalled by the Pope refusing to stand for life – which is one of the most fundamental values in all of Christendom.

    John 8:1-11

    “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

    God the Father of the Old Testament established execution, but the loving and kind God the Son of the New Testament abolished it. I’m pretty sure such people don’t realize they’re denying the Trinity when they say this.

    The doctrine of the Trinity affirms the eternal unity of all three persons of the Godhead, but such a fundamental disagreement between the Son and the Father would rupture this unity. In fact, if Jesus had contradicted any of the Father’s principles, let alone such a well-established one, that very disagreement would have immediately disproved His claims to be the divine Son. This was exactly the heresy the Pharisees were hoping to trap Him into when they brought the woman caught in adultery to Jesus. Even His enemies knew that He had to affirm capital punishment in order to prove Himself a true prophet. How strange, then, that those who claim to love Jesus assert that He did exactly what His enemies failed to trick Him into doing! Far from opposing capital punishment, Jesus actually advocated it, as His unity with the Father required.

  144. Dear Earl, Please you are not destined for hell. You need to study under a Bible teacher. Go to a non-denominational church and you will learn the truth. Jesus said no one goes to the Father except trough me. Believe in your heart that Jesus died on the cross for all our sins past present and future and that God the Father raised him up on the third day. Ask him to be your Savior. Please do this and believe. It sure saved me. I used to be Catholic until I felt that pull to come out of her. Priests are sinners just like we are because we all have that sin nature. So confessing to another sinner is not where it’s at. Sit down and confess to Our Lord and be forgiven. God Bless you.

  145. The catholic church teaches many blatantly wrong teachings..

    “Pope Francis says evolution is real and God is no wizard!”

    This pope says it is okay to be gay. Jesus killed every Sodomite and Gamahoran because he is anti LBGTQ. John 8:58 Before Abraham was Born, I Am

    …57Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and You have seen Abraham?” 58“Truly, truly, I tell you, Jesus declared, “beforeAbraham was born, I am!” 59At this, they picked up stones to throw at Him. But Jesus hid Himself and slipped away from the temple area.…

    Genesis 18:17 Abraham Begs for Sodom

    16Then the men rose up from there, and looked down toward Sodom; and Abraham was walking with them to send them off. 17The LORD said,”Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do,18since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed?…

    He says it is wrong for America to build a wall when the vatican has a very nice wall. Revelation 21:12The New Jerusalem

    …11shining with the glory of God. Its radiance was like a most precious jewel, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12The city had a great and high wallwith twelve gates inscribed with the names of thetwelve tribes of Israel, and twelve angels at thegates. 13There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south, and three on the west.…

    They teach baptism for babies, babies are without sin. Jesus was 30 years old when he was baptized.

    Matthew 19:14

    14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. (The “kingdom of God is WITHOUT SIN!”)

    They teach say 50 our fathers and 10 hail marries. Repetitious prayer

    Matthew 6:7-8

    7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

    8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

    Catholics WRONGLY pray to Mary and the “saints.”

    1 Timothy 2:5

    “For there is oneGod and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

    They commit idolitry and pray to statues of i.e. crucifixes of Jesus “graven images” of Jesus, Marry and the apostles and angels and saints.

    Exodus 20:3

    The Ten Commandments

    …2″I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 3″You shall have no other gods before Me. 4″You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.”

    They call the pope ‘holy father” there is only 1 holy father, the almighty God!

    Matthew 6:9 Our father who art in Heaven Hallowed be thy name!”

    They baptize by sprinkling a few drops of water on the forehead instead of emersion.

    Mark 1:10The Baptism of Jesus

    9In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10As soon as Jesus “CAME UP OUT OF THE WATER,” he saw the heavens breaking open and the Spiritdescending on Him like a dove. 11And a voice came from heaven: “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”…

    The catholics also sided with the Nazies in ww2!

  146. realism,,How STUPID can you be and you call yourself. ReaLISM. These last 16 months has proven that the word DEMOCRAT, is synonymous to STUPID.

  147. Diana, Please read David Swann comment. This is the true meaning of Christianity. I used to be Catholic but I learned the truth. When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior you need none of the things that Catholic religion puts on their perishoners. Read the Bible. Get help from a Bible teacher to learn the true meaning. God Bless you sister.

  148. If you are catholic, RUN from that church! Find a good bible teaching evangelical church that teaches the word of God…

    Pope Francis suggests translation change to the ‘Our Father’ The lords prayer…..Jesus taught us that prayer!

    This pope thinks he knows better than God Jesus!

    Pope Francis thinks the church should tweak the translation of the “Our Father” to clear up the confusion around the phrase “lead us not into temptation.”

    “That is not a good translation,” the pope said in a interview on Wednesday night with Italian television.

    A possible alternative is the phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which is currently used by the French church. In his interview, Pope Francis suggested that phrase could be adopted more widely.

    Why would anybody listen to this antichrist pope? God gave us all “free will” so why would this man want to change the word of God from “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” to “Do not let us fall into temptation?”

    This would remove free will from us and give it fully to God! God loves us so much he gave us the choice to choose for ourselves.. I prefer that God “Leads me” instead of “forcing me….”

    Revelation 22:19

    Nothing May Be Added or changed!

    18I testify to everyone who hears the words of prophecy in this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19And if anyone takes away from the words of this book of prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. 20

    In the book of Job, God gave permission to Satan to test (tempt) Job. I guess the “Holy Father” needs to read the bible.

  149. the pope should be removed, remember at the vaticann he had a drug and sexual party not long ago many were minors. How can he judge others when he has been involved in the same act as many priest?
    Those who have repented of sins and accepted Christ as their personal Savior are the ones who God forgives and will allow to reign in HIS Kingdom. No one else, no matter what religion you are. Scripture is very clear on this. Christ died for our sins, was buried and was raised three days later to enter heaven/ Christ will return for his church which are born again believers, others are left to face the horrors of the beast and anti Christ and will be forced to follow him. Don’t wait REPENT NOW and become a Child of God’s. This pope should be forced to step down. God will judge all sinners, the priest, nuns who have sinned against their vows, had children aborted them, buried them below many of the churches, and places of residence.

  150. The history of the occupants of the Vatican are replete with corruption, yet the Church of Jesus Christ, Christianity prevails and always will. The history of the church is no less than that of human history starting with Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel. Humans are imperfect, the popes are simply are representative of the the foibles of the human race. The principles of the Catholic Church, the Ten Commandments and the teachings of the Bible are inviolable. Men, whether clerics or disciples are imperfect and subject to the temptations of Satan. The Catholic Church, the One True Church will cleanse itself and move on as a beacon of morality and civility.

  151. Here’s a Kicker for you from Last July maybe you missed.
    I’m not Catholic but the Church seems to have a Problem with the Truth since WW 2 with being Honest with it’s Parishioner’s.

  152. Many Catholics believe in the church and its precepts and icons more than having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Martin Luther saw the misguided adherence to a institution rather than the Savior, as the potential for abuses, and while humans are the church, Catholicism has established the church as the means for salvation. Humans are sinners in need of the grace and mercy of Almighty God, not the institution of the church. Only Jesus can save not the church. When this reality hits the hearts of people, they can have a healthier perspective of the failings of priests and pastors. The idea of being watchmen on the wall should be for all parents – parishioners and leaders. Pope Francis is not infallible and his opinions are directing his decisions. It is time all Christians, Catholic, Orthodox or Protestant stop looking at men, and look to the Savior. Remember, His anger was directed to the temple and its perverting actions as well as the leadership – Saducees, Pharisees and scribes not the people who went to temple.

  153. Your not destined to hell for denying Catholicism. Many people I know recognized that there were problems within Catholicism, not simply having a pope, but theological issues that countered sound biblical teaching. The more they study scripture the more they realized sound biblical teaching and Catholicism often didn’t align. If you were destined to hell it would likely be a result of placing your faith in the pope who is a sinful fallen man and not wholly in Jesus. The first commandment is clear that we will love the Lord God with all of our heart, mind, body and soul. That there shall be no other before Him. Not the pope, not Mary, know one. Martin Luther commented in his Galatians commentary that the Catholic Church was, in his opinion, directly responsible for sending millions straight to hell. I am not a fan of Luther by any stretch, but his point was no man can ever be substituted for holy spirit, ever. Francis is a fallible, fallen man, just like everyone else. You won’t go to hell for denying Catholicism, but you will if you deny God. Read God’s word, committing your life to Jesus before it’s too late and receive the Grace of a loving God. God bless you.

  154. I am Catholic and will always be Catholic it is the only Religion that Jesus set up but of course the perverted queers have to try and ruin anything Good and Right, Catholics know this is a grave sin, and these corrupt politicians can try and shove this garbage on us but it will not win, Right is Right Wrong is Wrong and this so called pope need to Resign or they in Rome need to throw him out, all those involved need to be removed in Disgrace, and I wouldn’t put it past this pope queering, he is the Church’s obama, don’t be complacent they all have to be disgraced removed and if possible jail time I have know sympathy for any off them, this Church needs to get back to our roots, Traditions, nuns back in habits, and I went to Catholic Schools and they were great teachers, and that is the way it needs to be so None of these secular creeps teach our children,

  155. i’m not a religious person myself , but this person that is suppose to be a
    religious leader to millions is turning out to be,,
    not so great !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  156. If they’re homosexuals, then they should not be priests. Read the first chapter of Romans…Christians should not be doing this or have this life style if they’re priests (actually whether or not they are priests…it’s sinful like it or not). Hell is a real place and these priest are heading there along with this pope. How disgusting!

  157. Bill Clinton is a rapist and Donald Trump is not. Bill Clinton is a murderer and Donald Trump is not. So Trump had an affair I can forgive Trump for that. Donald Trump is not evil like Clinton or Obama.

  158. I am once again sick at heart. I was a devote RC for many years, but have always believe something was wrong within in the RCC. This fake pope is l ike the fake news, it/he is perpetual.
    I guess I am destined for hell because I am not faithful to the RCC.
    If God will not step, then I guess good men and women will have too.

  159. No matter what happens, I will always
    be a Catholic that follows Jesus not men. Most of these men are homosexuals not pedophiles. You don’t fix perversions by being married.

  160. Linda, I left the Catholic church after I got out of Catholic High School because I could see clearly that Catholic theology was really messed up – – – and it protected abusers, not only sexual abusers by assault and battery on students. But, come on, that is not true about Pope Francis, he is a humble man of compassion for the poor, for those hurting, and is a reformer trying to bring the RCChurch back to the loving teachings of the Sermon on the Mount and the beatitudes. There are many lovers of Christ and the Father in the Catholic Church.

  161. Just to add a point, Catholic priests CAN be married, if say, they were episcopal priests who were married and convert to Catholicism. A lot of priests see this as a double standard as to why they cannot marry when they have been Catholics their whole lives.

  162. The Catholic Church will perish if there is no repentance and no fasting with prayer. This is horrible and that jackass of a pope says, “no comment”.

  163. Good point, Dawn. But does that also not apply to Trump, who lies all the time and about having affairs with Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal and lying about it continuously, but now we have proof those affairs did occur. How can a group of people get so upset that Bill Clinton lied (he did) and had an affair, and not be even MORE upset at a serial liar and adulterer, much less about all those 16 or more women that have filed sexual harassment claims on Donald “Putin’s Puppet” Trump?

  164. I’m not surprised in revelation the beasts are the Roman empire then the Harlot who sits upon many waters or nations is the UNHOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH established by Satan its pagan idolatry coated with a thin veneer of false Christianity

  165. Mario, I agree. This supposed, phony head (pun intended!) of the Catholic church, has NO business criticizing our great President who has done more for America. Evidently he prefers those who would hate America by allowing the illegal immigrants to enter our country and letting them vote; after all most of them come from Spanish-speaking countries. Pope, go back to your papal bull for that is what it is and what you are!

  166. They have a long history of silence in the face of horrible crimes. The Vatican played footsie with Mussolini’s Regime and it’s ties to NAZI Germany. This Pope is now guilty of fraud by being silently blind and deaf to the obvious. Priests identified should receive no quarter. They should be prosecuted and if found guilty sent to the strongest penalties the law allows. Those involved in obstructing should also be held accountable regardless,of,how high it goes. Enough. The abused children are scarred for life. The perverts that did that to them should get life.

  167. There will be a reply. Pope Francis is a good man.
    Allowing priests to marry would change nothing as these are
    sick and abnormal human beings. The cover- up is worse.
    These are the times when the good men of all churches will
    stand up and be counted. And those who do not go to church perhaps
    Married and unmarried alike.

  168. I left the Catholic “religion” when I was 12, so I left over 48 years ago. I knew there was something wrong with the Catholic theology back then and so far, this pope is proving my point about something being wrong. When pope Francis became pope, I had heard he was Luciferian and so far everything he does shows that he follows Satan and not Christ.
    Found a Godly church and don’t look back to where I was at age 12 much anymore.

  169. There you’ll have it even that dude won’t say nothing about how those so-called men of GOD hurt children. But they all have to FACE ALMIGHTY GOD, for justice. That pope dude is no better than those other PIGS that hurt those children.

  170. How would getting married help ? They like UNDER-AGE MALES. These priests are not interested in women at all. They are pedophiles. Marriage doesn’t cure pedophelia.

  171. Priests being able to marry would not help the situation as the abuse involved underage MALES. Not FEMALES . These priests are not interested in women… or people of legal she got that matter. They’re pedophiles.

  172. I will not make excuses for these child abusers,especially when it comes to sexual or mental abuse. While I am not Catholic, I do see abuses from others in the Protestant churches as well. ALL abusers should not be allowed to continue in their clergy roles after being found out, even being sent to prison for these heinous crimes. And we know what other prisoners do to these child sex abusers and it just ain’t pretty.

  173. Pedophiles are pedophiles whether married or single. It is, and has been, very difficult to be a Catholic under this Pope’s “leadership.” If I am wrong, guess I will not be going to Heaven. But, I think this guy is a creep and he could lead me no where.

  174. Let us classify these creatures properly “THEY ARE HOMOSEXUALS”. They use the description pedophiles to be politically correct so they don’t offend the gay community. Very little research will show the truth. How sad that word games are used to disguise the TRUTH.

  175. Silence to me from the pope means he too may have something to hide many years ago.Just food for thought.


  177. As long as homosexuals are allowed to become priests, rather than being rejected because the Bible expressly condemns homosexuality and sodomy as deadly sins, problems within the Catholic Church will continue! The “no comment” from Pope Francis leads me to suspect he may condone pedophilia, just as the Muslims and the Liberal Democrats in America do. If so, there’s no reason to demonstrate any deference toward Pope Francis!

  178. The one thing that those Priest Predators did not obey from the Ten Commandments..Thou shalt not lie about anything..They lied about not abusing any child or having affairs with women or men..

  179. The doctrine of the Catholic Church is pure. It is the church founded by the apostle Peter at Jesus’s command 2000 years ago. Like all churches, though it is comprised of human beings who are fallible. There are good Catholics and bad Catholics. The idea that there are those in the hierarchy of the church that condone this behavior by members of the clergy is indefensible. Is this Pope too liberal? Should priests be allowed to marry? The fact is the church must start to do some serious soul searching, at least in the dioceses where this abuse and cover ups have taken place over the decades. Humanity has tainted the church. Not the church and faith itself. Look at the Jim Bakker’s and Jimmy Swaggart’s of the protestant world. many “Christians” have brought shame to the name of Jesus Christ. He remains who he always has been.

  180. A great number of local Catholic churches have become subsidiaries of the Communist Party. That is the reason this former Roman Catholic stopped going to church for the past 50 years.

  181. That has been the way the Catholic charcuterie has all was been no one wants to take responsibility for what thay do. As long as catholic Presets are not to Marry this will keep happing as it’s been going on for the last1500 hundard years or longer since Presets can not Marry it will keep going on. Thay should all go to Prisons and not sent to the place thay send them to go thru Physico medical help but it does no good thay just send to another Church and it just starts all over AGEAN.

  182. The Catholic church should not be above the authority of law. A child abuser is a child abuser no matter vocation/occupation. People who cover it up also become abusers too. It’s not a pretty truth, but it becomes uglier the longer it stays hidden.

  183. He can not say anything because one or another he is complicit. The Catholic Church makes it very difficult to witness to our neighbors.

  184. I don’t understand why people with kids even go to a Catholic Church. Of course bad things happen in other churches. But the Catholics lead the field. Priests should be allowed to marry. They say a hard on has no conscience.

  185. The systematic cover up of 300 abuses of more that 1000 children in Pennsylvania is only the tip of the iceberg. Imagine 2000 years of global abuse.
    Imagine the cover up for 2000 years of the true meaning of the Cross.

  186. God save us from the Church Thy are cults My believe comes from within ,not from man in drag !!Thy are nothing but money hungry fear mongering ,lots of sex abuse mostly kids .So i believe God save us from the Church !


  188. Why would a left leaning Liberal Pope say anything?
    We all know it’s been going on & I find it sick!
    Wasn’t it just a couple years ago they were caught doing that in the Vatican itself?
