Damned Catholics
RE: Damned Catholics
(February 24, 2019 at 12:17 am)Fake Messiah Wrote: Dark Secrets of the Vatican (2018) - PBS Documentary about how twisted the catholic church is by revealing some of the deepest and darkest secrets of the Vatican.




Why are people so surprised?

The Catholic Church is one of the oldest organisations on the planet.  A huge corporation with offices all over the world.

Imo the Church  has been corrupt  probably as early the second century, when it developed a hierarchy. Certainly no later than the fourth century under the emperor Theodosius ,when christianity became the state religion of the Roman empire. . At that time the Christians  began officially persecuting (killing) anyone who disagreed with its dogmatic beliefs. The practice of burning dissidents  alive continued until the seventeenth century, only ending when the Church lost that power

This corruption probably reached its most egregious and most publicly visible level during the Renaissance, under the Borgia and Medici popes. All that has really changed since then is that the Church has learned to be more discreet and more secretive.

 The current scandals, which seem to riddle the Church have been hidden and  denied as policy .  Many non Catholics  seem not yet have understood that this secrecy, and denial has occurred because the Church has always taught that Canon law trumps civil law.  I'm not convinced that position has changed at all. For centuries, no member of the clergy could be tried by civil authorities  for any crime whatsoever. They could only be tried and punished by an  ecclesiastical court. IE by theChurch.

"This will send a shockwave across Catholic countries." - well, it better do but I kind of doubt that Catholics themselves are interested in this. They wouldn't be Catholics if they got all the info.

Quote:Buffalo Diocese is now the target of a $300 million lawsuit by a woman who says she was sexually abused decades ago by a priest who taught at Cardinal O'Hara High School.

"Where were the supervisors? ... For three years she was being sexually abused on a regular basis by this priest."
