Listen, JohnPaul Kuchie Kuchie – stop bringing up the priest scandal. And if that is your reason for leaving the Church, how weak of you. The Church is its people, the entire body, and you jumped ship – guess you just needed an excuse to be irresponsible. We don’t look to Pope Benedict to reign in the masses – and, please, do not disrespect the one who sits in Peter’s Chair. It’s offensive.
The pope or Peter is not the head of church. Jesus is. The pope is not the Holy Father. Father God is the Father. The pope is not the vicar of the church. The Holy Spirit is. The pope position is an anti Christ. Check out the church in revelation 2 and 3. that's the Catholic Church headed to the lake of fire.
Run from your priests and their pagan rituals. Don't you know the veil was torn at Calvary and there is no need to confess your sins to a man via priest. Why would you do that anyway? What if he was a pedophile? Do you think he forgave your sins? It is silly.
Repent to God and put your trust in Jesus. You are being duped. I was for 46 years then Jesus found me.
Yep, "stop bringing up the priest scandal" because it reveals how many good Catholic boys and girls were subjected to abuse while priests, bishops, cardinals and the pope looked the other way.
In fact, they not only looked the other way, the church establishment usually called the character of the accusers into question.
I my universe, you earn respect by the actions you take, not because a bunch of guys in red robes elected you to become instantly infallible! Think for yourself.

4XGrace, Who are you, and what gives you the right to make such inaccurate, disrespectful, ridiculous things about Catholicism? It’s amazing how you comment on things that you know absolutely nothing about, and are offensive, to boot. Stick to what you know — if there IS anything…..
