Uhh you do know Greek Mythology is a myth right?

You have to admit that there's a serious problem here. I'm not going to say every priest has done this, but it has happened way too many times, and the superiors within the church almost always seem to prioritize covering up the crime and finding th epriest a new parish over seeing justice done and protecting the children from predators. There has been a massive failure to live in accordance with Jesus's teachings among many members of the Catholic clergy when they should be the ones living the most blameless lives. They are, after all, supposed to be guiding the flock. This is a massive problem. How can you be a holy organization when so many of your leaders are guilty of committing or covering such a horrible crime?

It's just not Catholics but religion in general. Religion just seems to just have an abundance of "weirdos". The hypocrisy of it all is mind blowing. These guys will preach to the death that you're going to hell for watching pornography or not following whatever they preach, but then it turns out that their molesting young children. Pathetic.

i understand the sentiment that a self-identifying Christian wouldn't want to be put in the same category as these guys. it's the same sentiment that makes a rational ideologue disassociate from his more radical brethren. but there comes a point, reached through sheer frequency, where the institution itself has to share in the blame. clearly these aren't isolated incidents based on extraordinary circumstances. to a certain extent while still refraining from totally overt generalization, they've actually become expected incidents based on ordinary circumstances. human beings have a strong sex drive, and the deprivation of such a basic human function on religious grounds leads to deviant and oftentimes immoral sexual behavior, in almost all cases but those featuring the most strident individual will power. it's a damn shame that the good of Christianity, exactly what is meant when anybody is referred to as a 'good Christian', has to be conflated with these totally antiquated rituals that have lost all of their sensibility in the modern world.
