NE,


You have highlighted the essence of this case.


"I feel so sorry for the victims"


1)First we think of the victims and a process for healing the wounds. Let us hope they are compensated with a ratio more equitably than the 400 million the lawyers will likely bag.



"anger at the perpetrators,"

2)The guilty priests and those of the hierarchy who covered it up.



"yet know that Christ's sacrifice can cleanse any of them"

3-a)Forgive them as well those who have used this issue as an attack on Christianity.

3-b)Forgive the employees and employers in the MEDIA who have presented their version of history and definition of the word pedophilia. Most dictionaries I've encountered define pedophilia as adult action and desire to sexually abuse children. After further review I have concluded that the majority of victims were teenage males. The guilty operatives were sinful in their breaking of a vow to God of celibacy. The victims were not little girls or little boys for that matter. Nuns nor bishops nor maintenance crews nor deacons nor whatever were involved in the sinful act. Could it be that the sexual orientation of these priests were homosexual or bisexual?

In their holy zeal for political correctness could it be that a more convenient nomenclature for gay priest would be pedophilia. Brought to you by the same MEDIA who flushed a Holy Qur'an down the toilet. Do we see a pattern here? Does it involve monotheistic religion.?

Repeat something often enough, and people tend to believe it. I wonder where they learned that?

Replete with omissive editing, soundbytes, and digital alteration, we again have the MEDIA'S version of history. When will they just report the news with the truth, candidness, and integrity? Why must they continue their zealous efforts to divide the populous on not only religious but racial grounds as well. How come they didn't show the footage of unhyphenated Americans with African ancestry pulling truck driver Reginald Denny from the street and aving his life?


WARNING: To those who support this viewpoint, you may be labeled libelously as a homophobe. Be brave. You know in your heart and mind that you are not. Whether you decide to stand up to them or turn the other cheek is noble in heart. Like fuller, you may tend to support gay rights, even advocate civil unions, yet are against the sacrament of a gay marriage.


regards
