TIME Magazine reports that the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles will payout $660 Million to more than 500 victims of child abuse by the clergy. This is just the latest settlement in a widespread problem of child abuse by Catholic Priests. Almost all of the cases are the same – an older Catholic Priest molesting an Alter Boy. Many of the abuse cases involved some sort of retreat for these monsters to commit their pedophilia. By my numbers (see below), there could be as many of 24,000 of these assholes!
My personal feelings on this matter sway me to believe that there is a sort of unwritten rite in the Catholic church that calls for this unspeakable act. The cases seem so widespread and so common that it seems it would have to be almost a ceremonial tradition of some sort to molest young boys. My theory is supported by the fact that in the more than 300 cases of sexual abuse that have arisen over the last 5 years, many of them were “handled” by the Catholic Church by doing no more than shuffling the priest around to a different Church. That’s insane.
Hardcore Christians think the molestation happens because the Priests aren’t saved.
Why are so many perverts in the “priesthood”?
1. The unbiblical requirement for a celibate priesthood.
2. The Catholic religion is not Christian so their priests are not saved and still in their sins.
3. Catholics are trained to look on their priests with awe–Catholic priests are called “another Christ” (which is the definition of antichrist) . This is called brainwashing. Little children and unstable adults are easy victims. Pervert Catholic priests all over the world have been having a field day with people’s lives. They got away with it for centuries, but with the media, people are speaking out now.
4. A lot of Catholic priests don’t even believe in God. The Catholic priesthood is a job. They get adoration from men, a place to sleep, something to eat. A former Catholic related to me that when he was in counseling with his priest the priest told him not to mention God–the priest said his therapist had said that he had to deal with his own problems!
Pretty sickening take on the whole thing, if you ask me. Saved or unsaved, God or no God, there’s never an excuse for child abuse. A commenter below mentioned that the above group isn’t so innocent from molestation scandals themselves.
I was surprised to find ReligiousTolerance.org’s denouncing of these actions a little weak. They look at the problem statistically:
Nobody even knows how many adults in general sexually abuse youth and adults. A figure of 2% is often mentioned. However this is really just a guess…
It is important to keep one’s eye on the forest and not on the trees. Even if, as one researcher estimates, six percent of priests sexually abuse youth or children, then that still leaves an average of almost 19 priests out of every 20 who are non-abusive.
1 in 20 is an astonishing figure! AllAboutReligion.com estimates there to be 400,000 Catholic Priests, worldwide. At six percent, that’s 24,000 pedophile priests that are molesting our children!
