I am not condemning or judging anyone's (or institutions) behavior - only G_d has that right.
No, this is a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black, enjoying it, profiting from it, and getting away with it big time.
The Holy Roman Catholic MACHINATIONS, from the start, was to keep the people ignorant; the noblemen - royalty, etc, were given a 'ticket to Heaven' -
that is, if they could PAY for it, IN FACT any person could be absolutely convinced that the MONEY given to the CHURCH - the church of Jesus... would
exempt them from HELL, Purgatory, etc. - No matter what sins they had committed - Remember?
How about those grand days of the Crusades (and the slaughter of every inhabitant of Jerusalem - Jewish, Christian and Muslims living side by side in
peace - and slaughtered in the name of G_d?) and then the Inquisition(s) and WITCH Hunts - designed to keep women LOW, and Intellectuals Murdered or
sent to work as a slave-laborer, oh, and the expulsion of Jews from Spain - Diaspora, oh, and then, the pogroms and propagandist views then given to
the parishioners and they were told that was the Word of GOD which instilled into them a MORAL Superiority because they believed GOD told their Pope
what to do?
During the Nazi DECADES, do you remember reading anything in History or library books of the Vatican taking any moral stance on the slaughtering of
millions of "Innnocents", and then, the subsequent hiding of High-ranking SS, Gestapo etc - for a small fee, of course - for them to be spirited out
to South America and other destinations like the USA?
This is not about ONE simple problem within the Roman Catholic Church with the Pedophiles situation; this "Church" of G_d - a Christian non-profit
Institution has had an ongoing and multi-faceted approach to keep the "Average Jane or Joe" as ignorant as possible - this is a simple chess move -
wait 20 years, and then it will begin all over again until the Church is NO MORE.
Jesus might be crying right now.... Why didn't the Nicean Conference want The Gospel Of Yeshua ben Joseph" - or Jesus Christ - in the New Testament?
Everything written in the New Testament is hearsay - and there is no input from women at ALL - yet it was the women that followed "The Teachings" and
kept Christianity in its purest form until CONSTANTINE saw a burning cross in the sky - sure he did - he and his mother saw an opportunity -
Christians had a very sophisticated Social NETWORK
, and ROME was crumbling - 2 Roman empires - West and East, constantly bickering with each
other over POWER.............
What year did the Church finally allow people to own their own Bible? Yeah, a parishioner didn't even have a Bible to read - even after Gutenberg -
AND TO POSSESS A BIBLE meant certain DEATH. Everything in the Old and New Testaments was read in Latin up until the early 1970"s here in the US....
This is not about a Religion - this is about CORRUPTION at its central Core - men took great POWER over other men - and, at any one time for over 1000
years, whatever the Pope said was as if G0d had said so, and that was THAT.
I believe in the philosophy of Yeshua ben Joseph, and I try to live it each and every day - I bear no ill will or hatred - I feel compassion and
empathy, but I will not lie - and there is nothing "Holy" about the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
Pedophiles are just one of the hundreds of corruptions happening, right now in real-time. Love ya, Susa
