The trouble I have with the whole idea of the Roman Catholic Church, is that it focuses attention away from God, and toward the flawed human being (as
are we all) who speaks on his behalf. For a start, the teachings of Jesus put forward that no one comes to God, except those who go through Jesus.
There is no mention in the bible of trusting a human being to be a middle man between a worshiper and our Lord Jesus Christ, and also no mention of
starting a cult which puts power in the hands of men, who act in a manner which tarnishes the word and name of God in the sight of his people.
And yet, that is the entire basis of the Roman cult. You must look no further than the fact that the current pope was responsible for "dealing"
with sicko priests, and did no where near enough to ensure that they met justice, moving them to other parishes, just as had been done by those who
came before him, to see the evidence for yourself. These men should have had thier heads on sticks, and thier other heads, on other sticks if you get
my drift, quicker than you can say abuse of position. And yet there are STILL accusations, and STILL victims comming out of the wood work, and still
vile scum dressed as men of God, performing sexual acts on children even now.
Obviously, child molestation is not a problem which affects the Catholic clergy alone, and can be found in various cultures, and communities, but it
is rare for an organisation to be as utterly unwilling to turn a person who performs sickening acts against minors over to the authorities, as the
Roman Catholic Church has been.
I believe in God, but I have no respect for a Church which not only fails to deal with, but has actively prevented child molesters from facing
justice. Vengence may belong to God, but the failiure to turn these sickos over to the police in a timely manner, has endangered so many children,
that it must surely represent a failiure of the duty of care that the Roman Catholic Church has to its parishoners and those under its care in
childrens homes over the years. It cannot be allowed to continue.
As people who (falsely in my opinion) claim to be representatives of God and Jesus, the clergy of ANY Christian church organisation MUST be held to a
higher standard of morality and desire to protect the weak, than are regular folk. It is after all part of thier job, as believers in God, let alone
self appointed standard bearers for his followers on Earth. Since it is obvious that the Roman Catholic Church in particular refuses to do an adequate
job of holding its clergy to account for thier obvious sins, perhaps the clergy should be subjected to twenty four hour scrutiny, by independant
Whatever the solution, the time is long past for this matter to be resolved with finality, and it is disgusting that it has taken this long, let
alone that there is evidence of CONTINUING harm being done to the future of the world, the children.
As another concern linked to this issue, the behavior of the Church, and of the priests involved, is a surefire way to turn people from thier faith
in God, or to prevent a person from ever attaining any. Although in reality this is a secondary concern (as it should be to anyone who cares a damn
about the victims), it is none the less a concern in times which see faithless behaviour as a norm rather than as a shock.
In all particulars these sick criminals have wronged the people they are given to protect, the God they claim to represent, and must be bought before
the law with all speed. The wearing of robes, and the knowing of the Bible, should be no defence against justice here on Earth.
