If you stand by the Catholic Church, if you donate time and money to this organization, you are complicit. There is no way around it. This will not be the last report. It will not be the worst report. It is just the latest in a long line. And we all know this to be true. If you still support the Catholic Church, you are complicit in the rape of children and its cover up. If you think that is too harsh, start thinking about the victims instead.

I church has shown its true colors. Yet another reason NOT to call myself a Christian and yet one more point where this demonstrates the pure evil of ALL organized religions. The way it harms society. Where was their God when this was happening?
I believe you are right! I’m glad I left ten years ago. It wasn’t soon enough. I left because of the misogyny. Little did I know that the reason they don’t want women around is probably because of the sexual abuse. Don’t trust this pope for a minute. His job Is to protect the organization! Damm them! They have destroyed so many lives!
Pope Francis has just left Ireland after asking forgiveness for all the abuses of the Church. About half a million people attended and applauded. I guess he is hoping that an apology is enough. There was no talk about the legal necessity to refer abusers to the police. They appear to be adamant about keeping their abuse cases in-house.
