German Catholic Priests Abused More Than 3,600 Kids

German Catholic Priests Abused More Than 3,600 Kids
More than 3,600 children in Germany were assaulted by Roman Catholic priests between 1946 and 2014

Most of the victims were boys, and more than half were aged 13 or younger.

Predatory clerics were often moved to new communities, where no warning was issued about their actions.

The study was compiled by three German universities, using 38,000 documents from 27 German dioceses. Its authors said the true extent of the abuse may be even greater, as some records were "destroyed or manipulated".

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Why the fuck would the average catholic even want to be associated any more. 

Do they understand that by remaining they are passively condoning these acts?

Didn't the putative Jesus call the people his flock? The sheep analogy serves double duty in this sense. I guess when ne has enough invested in the religion, one doesn't want to cause waves. Inasmuch as I am no longer a member of the RCC, my voicing outrage would do little, since the laity has been told "silence and prayers" and dare not raise their heads from the grass. Dodgy

They want punch and pie in the sky..and the RCC is selling it. The bodies and lives of children have always been a cost of business the laity is willing to bear.

Then they should also be willing to bear any animosity that comes their way.

You know maybe this is a deadly blow to Catholic Church because Germany is perhaps the richest "Catholic country" and I think it's safe to say that Germany is a cash cow to the Vatican, considering that Catholic Germans must pay 10% out of their monthly pay and if something was there to disrupt that it seems Vatican would be in a serious doo-doo.

But, of course, it may not disrupt the believing Germans at all and maybe Vatican has some other valuable cash sources.

Nah, that's just you being anti-catholic, doncha know. You're asking for consistency and a principled stand from people who claim to be in the church of christ but simultaneously refuse to remove the charlatans and abusers from their temples.  Far from knocking over tables..they're shelling out their coin.

The desire to live forever is a desperate affair.

No.  They don't get it.  That's because they still believe in fucking jesus.

If you "live" through the first million years without losing your mind I'd be impressed.
