    I find it appalling that the US Government has never applied RICO to the RC Church. Their crimes against children meet every criteria of the law.

    And the Feds have used RICO for the most obtuse crimes. But if ever there was a case for a criminal conspiracy, the Catholic Church fits the bill. I guess it helps to have a few million voters on your side.

    In what regard? The existence of it, or the reporting of it?

    Artie do your very own children not feel abused by your actions, or the way you used their mother? He who is not without sin, cast the very first stone!.

    Definitely fits the definition of organized crime, in my opinion. But even the mob has enough scruples not to target children.
    The only reason this whole religion is not shut down is Western society has been brainwashed for their entire lives to accept anything the church does as okay.

    Your statement is ambiguous. Are you afraid to clarify it?

    Why would anyone try to defend sexual abuse by priests? It's getting out of hand, meaning the existence of it. I'm abhorred by it, d'oh.

    It needed clairification.

    And it could only come from the person who wrote it. We did not want to assume we knew what you meant.

    Our moral and values are not like yours. (You have amply demonstrated that .)

    It is quite conceivable given your posting history that you could have a conviction that the rest of us find inexplicably illogical or immoral .


    You make your own reputation and people build their picture and respond to you accordingly.


    Hope that helps.

    I am not shocked at the latest incidents of child sexual abuse within the tightly guarded confines of the Roman Catholic Church. No wonder countless, large numbers of people are abandoning the RCC. This is clearly the most hypocritical institution in existance. Another reason why I could never again be a Roman Catholic. Now with the Milwaukee Archdiocese being targeted for these latest, vicious crimes, I wonder if the Buffalo Diocese is experiencing any similar unlawful activity. I would not be shocked if it is true.
