It seems everyone who disagrees with Steve on anything is called a jerk or idiot.

STEVE HERE: Now that sounds like a bit of an exaggeration and I won’t call you an idiot for saying it. So there, you disagreed and I didn’t give you an idiot, which proves you wrong. Now Maher on the other hand, proves himself to be an idiot and unfair on a daily basis.

STEVE RAY HERE: WE CATHOLICS ARE WELL AWARE OF THE PROBLEMS WITH ROUGE PRIESTS AND NEGLEGENT BISHOPS. YOU TELL US NOTHING BELOW THAT WE DON’T ALREADY KNOW. I HAVE A CLOSE RELATIVE WHO WAS SODOMIZED BY A MARRIED BAPTIST DEACON. I KNOW OTHERS WHO WERE SEXUALLY ABUSED IN OTHER SECULAR SITUATIONS. PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE THE WORST. BUT A TRAGIC EPISODE IN OUR HISTORY DOES NOT NEGATE THE BEAUTY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WORLDWIDE OVER 2O CENTURIES. CLOSING YOUR EYES TO ALL THE CHURCH HAS DONE WELL AND GOOD TO FOCUS ONLY ON THE PROBLEMS IS TO BE MYOPIC AND FOOLISH AND UNFAIR. WE ALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEMS, BUT THEY ARE NOT SOMETHING YOU PUT IN A 60 SECOND ADD, ANY MORE THAN YOU WOULD ADMIT TO BEING 50 POUND OVERWEIGHT FOR A YEAR OF YOUR LIFE IN AN EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION.

ALSO THE CHURCH IS MAKING RIGHT WHAT HAS BEEN DONE WRONG WITH ROUGE PRIESTS AND NEGLIGENT BISHOPS. GIVE THE CHURCH CREDIT FOR CLEANING UP THE MESS. I WISH EVERYONE WAS JUST A QUICK TO CRITICIZE HOLLYWOOD, PUBLIC SCHOOLS, PROTESTANT CHURCHES AS THEY ARE TO CRITICIZE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WHERE THE PROBLEMS ARE FEWER THAN IN THE OTHER MENTIONED PLACES.

LLOYD WRITES Catholics come home.org commercials talk about everything good the church is and every good thing it has done. What it should talk about is not just the abuse of children by priests, but the extraordinary means bishops took to hide this abuse by moving priests around from diocese to diocese all in the name of covering up the truth. It should talk about a friend of mine who was abused by a priest in Helena, Mt. in the 60′s. This priest after much detective work was found to have been moved time and time again (actually 7 times). Was the new parish informed? Absolutely not! Did the church do any thing to help the victims? Absolutely not!!. Did the bishop threaten the boy’s father if he divulged the truth? Absolutely!!! Years later the boy (now a man) went to the bishop simply asking for an apology. Did he get it? No !!!! Would the bishop even see him? No!!!!. Only after repeated refusals by the bishop’s lackey did my friend hire a lawyer. Three years later, after being forced to see doctors and being subjected to degrading physicals and degrading sessions twice a week with their hand picked psychiatrist, and being forced to return to the scene where the abuse occurred and identifying certain markings on the pillars of the lavish, ostentatious cathedral of st. helena (the absence of capital letters are intentional), that he was forced to stare at while being sodomized by this animal/priest that “his” worse than animal bishop moved around time and time again allowing him to defile who knows how many young boys, did he finally settle for peanuts with the diocese and their henchmen lawyers. This current bishop turned out to be as much of an animal as the abuser priest by denying the church was at fault, by putting this abused individual through more hell, and by refusing to apologize. He was told that if he didn’t settle now they would drag this on for years. My friend’s lawyer said he couldn’t represent him any longer as he needed his share of the money for his legal fees.
This is what the catholic church is…admit it, face it, the church owes these abused individuals at least that much. Maybe then the truth will set the church free and it can spend the rest of its existence trying to undo what it has done. I thought somewhere in the bible it said something like: what ever you do to the least of my brothers,you do unto me????????????????????????????????????????????????? Suffer the little children to come unto me…what for? To be sexually abused by its priests and then be further defiled by lying, cheating bishops afraid to do their job?
