"the preservation of its assets....."

Another horrible story of the Catholic hierarchy conspiring to hide child sex abuse, this one out of Ireland, but what really caught my eye was this paragraph.
...the church was concerned only with “the maintenance of secrecy, the avoidance of scandal, the protection of the reputation of the church, and the preservation of its assets,” said the 700-page report...

...because that's what Jesus would have wanted....


  • This is the same catholic church that's threatening to abandon those in need in DC if DC passes gay marriage. Reminds me of the Talibanis who let girls burn to death because it would be "immoral" for male firefighters to enter the school.

    Different chapters of the same perversion.

  • Yeah. And who are spending their time denying communion to one Kennedy to "make an example."

  • I wonder what would happen if Patrick Kennedy started going to an Episcopal Church? Would this let the air out of the Catholic bishops puffery? There seems to be a rebalancing of the schism going on anyway.

    Some one has to stand up to these religious thugs.... no matter what sect, schism or whatever god-comples cult is trying to legislate their dogma.

  • I'm old enough to remember Jack Kennedy fighting off the electorate's doubts about having a Catholic president by saying that the church would not intervene in the state's business. I guess we are sliding backwards here.

  • EPM, He can't. With the long Kennedy history, it would be very difficult to spin.

    Anon, That's a really, really good point. There is no pushback....

  • The Roman Catholic "Church" is made up of millions of believers. The RC "hierarchy" is a small corrupt subset of a billion believers. Please do not conflate the two.
