“Faith is measured by all things unseen” as one of the other contributors to this forum so eloquently stated. Does that mean when the priest rapes the little child and the bishop covers the entire thing up before anyone hear or see it, then it is all expectable in the measurement of faith? It is “unseen”! The little childs’s pain, humiliation, lifelong psychological problems, destroyed faith, destroyed future, destroyed family, destroyed life is all “unseen”! We will simply call it “mistakes and shortcomings” and carry on as if nothing has happened. The thousands, if not millions crying for justice in every country on earth will be ignored. We will simply vilify the victims, and carry on protecting the sick raping fucks in the cloth! The vestiges of religion in me teaches me that Gods justice will rain down on you with a vengeance yet to be experienced by man. On the raping priests, their lying deceitful leaders, the discredited church globally and the denialists that somehow try to justify this as mere “mistakes and shortcomings”. When Jesus said “Let the little children come to me!” he didn’t mean to be used as sex toys!
“Joseph Ratzinger aka ‘Pope Benedict XVI’, even before your days in the highest office, you were responsible for a lot of the principles and directives that is used as justification for all the cover-ups. Your day will come, even if you are running now!”
“Even Jesus Christ cannot forgive you for what you’ve done!”
