In absence of anything else, the Catholic Church brought people together who had higher ideas.
However it has become corrupt in those ideas. It has accepted money in forms from criminals and turned the other way. It has shuffled Priests around
and moved them to other countries to avoid prosecution. It has funded business's involved in questionable activities in the past such as cigarette
makers. It has basically demonstrated that inside the organization is in a position of power and above retribution.
At one time on this planet, such a organization might have been good in lack of anything else. It has resulted in some major works or art and
inspirational things. However it has also stifled many people, such as the monks that could levitate and fly to the ceilings and were shuttled off to
a small monastery and parked the rest of their life.
It sucks that this organization is also part of your faith, and that is under attack. However you are also a supporter. And for example in WWII
Germany, as far as I am concerned those people stood by and did nothing should have been brought to justice as well, not only the people who did
By the same measuring stick, you are as well guilty of this, if you continue to allow the organization you are a part of do these things, and you
continue to support them with your words.
And because people like yourself are not stepping up, there has to be a overly harsh backlash here, because you are not doing what is right, so it is
left to others because you or others like you refuse to take the time to make things right to the world, and those young boys. And money, just does
not do it.
