Man, I know you guys like to claim pedos and homos are the same thing but if Catholics actually remotely believed that we'd see the post V2 church pouring resources into protecting gay rights advocates, not child molesting priests who also rape nuns (women) and girls (girls).

And the absence of evidence is not evidence, try harder!

Why should we settle for Christian Sharia to avoid Muslim Sharia?

First of all, there is no such thing as Christian Sharia. Sharia law is the greatest threat to humanity, so Christianity is needed to save the west. It is better to live in a Christian dominated society than under Sharia law, because the Christians wouldn't be forcing you to convert, or forcing women to cover their heads.
Says you, Muslim fundamentalists are Abrahamic, anti democratic theocrats and so are you. Both of you derive your morality from cruel, iron-age patriarchies and your authority from beings for which there's no evidence of them even existing. Both groups also put a whole lot of effort into protecting powerful sexual predators.

Tomato, tomato!

A steadfast insistence on secular government and a clear message from the populace (of all religious bents) that religiously-motivated laws will not be tolerated will keep the government secular however it is "infiltrated". Attempting to establish a theocracy only leads to that theocracy being inherited by the next dominant religion.

It won’t if Islam grows to a point where Muslims become the majority of the populace. That is why measures need to be taken to promote Christianity, stop Muslim immigration and encourage more reproduction.
Nah, secularism applies to all regardless of sect, that's sort of the point!

But if Islam grows, the Muslims will infiltrate government and replace secularism with Sharia. That is why Christianity, bans on Muslim immigration, and more reproduction is needed.

It's a long report. But at least read the introduction.

One victim who came forward was eighty-three years old. Since they were only looking at child sex abuse, that would mean that, even if that testimony was heard this year and the victim was abused shortly before turning 18, the abuse happened no later than 1953.

Vatican II my ass.

As I keep saying, corrupt clergy began infiltrating the Church before Vatican II and Vatican II was a result of that.
Do you have any evidence to support this conspiracy theory of yours?

The fact that it was in the 20th century that reports of the scandal happened and there aren't reports of it from before the 1940s, indicating that was when the infiltration began. There would have been reports of it, if it had been going on before hand. The Protestants would have exposed such crimes during the Reformation if they occurred. Furthermore, an early reporter of the issue.

This is from the wikipedia article on the Congregation of the Servants of the Parcalete indicating that the problem was a new increasing problem.

"In a 1964 letter to Bishop Joseph Durick of Nashville, Tennessee Fitzgerald expressed "growing concern" about the dramatic change in the nature of problems that were being referred to his order:

May I take this occasion to bring to your attention what is a growing concern to many of us here in the States. When I was ordained, forty three years ago, homosexuality was a practically unknown rarity. Today it is rampant among men. And whereas seventeen years ago eight out of ten problems here [at the Paraclete facility, Via Coeli] would represent the alcoholic, now in the last year or so our admission ratio would be approximately 5-2-3: five being alcoholic, two would be what we call "heart cases" (natural affection towards women) and three representing aberrations involving homosexuality. More alarming still is that among these of the 3 out of 10 class, 2 out of 3 have been young priests."

I say this as a socialist, leave the poor bloody toffs alone, you maniac!

They've tried reporting the abuse to higher-ups in the Church, it's been ignored. What needs to happen is that the Church needs to make it very, very plain that not only can the laity report abuse to secular authorities, they should and must. (As should the Church itself.)

The Catholic Church can no longer be trusted to police itself.

I agree with that. I was referring to policy in the future when a noble person becomes Pope and adopts a zero tolerance policy.
