At least they're not homos

“Numerous victims have come forward,” Garabedian said. “They are currently 37 to 54. They were sexually abused when they were ages 5 to 16 from 1973 to 1994 all by him. More victims are coming forward.”

Well, shoot. I was gonna say at least the church is trying to get back to "norms" and set a good example.

I do think it is up to the morals of the majority to claim homo's are more/most likely to molest kiddies. Without any evidence at all, I would think/hope that homos having spent much of the time thinking about sex and their own right to be left alone would have a very low "non-consensual" sex rate. Or not...... they are after all only human, and humans suck.

Just goes to support my belief that all churches suck! It would appear that the catholic church is at the top of the list when it comes to sexual abuse and sexual deviations. Any wonder, they can't marry (except their god), so I guess you can only use your hand to a certain extent, they must get a sore wrist, so they deviate to having it off with children, generally of the male species.

You wonder why I'm an atheist.

GS, the above only indicates how base churches and religions are. I'm an atheist because I've never seen anything resembling proof that there is a god, a devil, or things that go bump in the night. All a load of crap from my perspective. Perhaps god and religions are the domain of people that need reassuring all the time, can't stand on their own feet and make there own decisions.

Like the same sex marriage debate we are having here in Australia at the moment. For mine, they can go for their lives, doesn't effect me at all. But many people will vote no because their church or god said so. Don't care about the church,but show me where god said gays cannot marry. Bet you can't.

That's it GS, nobody can show where god said anything. All made up by man for his own ends, whatever they may be.

Well no use calling on the bible as support. It was written many years after god or esus was allegedly on earth. So what would it know about anything that he may, or may not, have said. That is, of course, if he was really here at all.

Ha, ha...............ALL I've said is that being homosexual does not automatically mean you are also more likely to molest kiddies AND I gave my rationale for that. Course.... there is a logical rational the other way as well, but I prefer to be a positive role model for the Christians among us.

I am not especially cynical about the Catholic church. I am cynical about EVERYBODY.

The rule is that 1 person is 10 is a total arsehole. That includes catholic priests but is not limited to them. 1 in 10 white guys is TA and 1 in 10 black guys is TA, and 1 in 10 Inuits is TA. Even 1 in 10 accountants.

It is only when you expect religious nut cases to be better that you get disappointed.

Cynical or skeptical, Lance?

A cynic is a person who always acts selfishly.
To be cynical is to believe that people always act selfishly; or to be sarcastic or sneering.

And I don't expect anything from religious nut cases, or just religious people. They have nothing to offer. So I'm skeptical of them all. As an atheist, that is quite easy to do.

Absolutely correct.

But is being a Roman Catholic priest (whether of the homo moiety or no) automatically mean you are also more likely to molest kiddies than a layman?

Definitely cynical, Phoenix. Different meaning to skeptical. Cynical means being suspicious of a persons motives, and believing them to be driven by self interest. Skeptical refers to a claim. Cynical to a person.
