Yeah, didn't Hillary tell us we're supposed to believe the accuser?

Why are you so against victims of pedophilia?
Why don’t you want this evil to come to light?
Do you think sexual abuse of children wrong?
If so, what the hell is wrong with you?
If not, what the hell is wrong with you?
What a confusing mind to have, different opinions and values applied differently in any given situation.

The national average is unclear – up to 5% is estimated.
they are not “ordinary Americans” by the way. Anyone who does this is not ordinary.
Let me ask you two questions, do you think Hollywood should allow widescale investigations and do something to protect the children in the industry?
Do you think a progressive newspaper would do serious investigation to expose this to protect children, and will the papers print thousands of stories about it?
May 26, 2016 at 1:41pm
do you believe such nonsense, Shin?
The Hollywood underbelly is sickening.
 May 26, 2016 at 1:39pm
you’re beginning to sound like a broken old piano with one out of tune key to strike.
 May 26, 2016 at 1:38pm
Your vitriol is unattractive.
Something in your life is missing, for you to say outrageous offensive things.
Do you want attention?
Why not go for the good kind. It feels much better to love and be loved, than to spread hate.
Give it a try.
Set a goal. Two weeks. Nothing but kind words.

Considering the percent of clergy offenders is well below the national average, you have some questionable reasoning going on there. To put it mildly. Sometimes blind hatred stops us from thinking clearly about a topic.
Educators molest many times more than clergy.
Fathers and uncles molest many times more than clergy do.
I suspect Hollywood is at least as bad as daddies, if not worse.
(Why limit it to directors? There are managers, agents, producers, stylists, publicists…)

It’s not pretty to watch, but God is allowing you to collapse under the weight of your many contradicting heresies. Zip, when you hit rock bottom, we will be here to help you.
Trusting you to God’s care.
P.S. Piece of advice. If you want your mystery religion to look appealing, you should first stop lying, then stop bullying Catholics. You’ve long ignored my advice (over a year ago) that if you want to critique Jesus’ Church, you should learn about her first. Instead you continue to make up some really crazy things. We’re like “what in the heck is he talking about?”
It tells us we waste time when you have no eyes to see or ears to hear anything but what the evil spirit tells you.
He wants to keep you from the light. From the Eucharist! He tells you go your own way, you are smarter than everyone. Don’t listen to that spirit. Test the spirit. He hates you. He doesn’t want you to be close to Jesus because then he has a chance at winning your soul. Please. Go to the Catholic Church and sit in front of the Tabernacle. Bless yourself with holy water. Gaze upon the crucifix. If you feel very agitated, that is a clear sign you are under demonic oppression. Talk to the priest.

I’ll check at the end of the work day and if you haven’t replied, I’ll have my answer. I hope you have sincerity, integrity, and openness to learning and correction.
Final chance: Since you do not recognize my numerous references to the Bible, promise to acknowledge that I provided them for you if I am to spend the time to do the homework.
May 25, 2016 at 11:05pm
Come, Holy Spirit!

So the integrity of teachers and uncles and fathers is completely kaput as well. They molest at rates exponential to the clergy scandal. Not even close.
no more families
no more school
consistent application in thought is the only way to be taken seriously, IMHO.
 May 24, 2016 at 9:04pm
Yes, go to a 21st Century youtube video with scary music and Dan Brownesque “facts” for God’s truth to finally be unveiled.
Makes alot of sense, Lance.
 May 24, 2016 at 9:03pm
It’s going to take me a half hour and by the end of it you might just vanish and pretend this conversation never happened.
Give me your word that you will acknowledge that I listed all 13 Scriptural references that you were unable to recognize. I’ll wait for your promise to make my efforts worthwhile.
You don’t seem to understand the fundamental difference between your source of truth, a “documentary” or two, and the one Jesus left us, the pillar and foundation of truth, the Church. If you want to believe things about Jesus, the written Word of God, and the Church Jesus established based on a 21st Century conspiracy theorist’s word, then I think you are making a mistake. I don’t need to search the internet to watch videos or read fear-mongering material based on half-truths or outright fabrications to know the truth.
Jesus left us a provision by which the whole WORLD could know the truth.
Pardon me if I choose His way over the one you encourage.
May 24, 2016 at 4:15pm
I am not,
I haven’t seen restored bodies, but those who have seen visions of the Virgin Mary and Jesus have. Jesus appeared in his glory at the Transfiguration. This is recorded in Scripture.
we don’t just tell people they’ll have a better body in heaven, though it is true, we help them to understand that suffering can be a beautiful and effective gift when united to the suffering of Christ. We also walk with them and help them and love them.
See, this is the error of your thinking that a Christian can’t understand. Christians don’t see the loss of a limb as making the person any less. They are complete humans, deserving human dignity and respect. Not to be looked down upon as “less than fully human” as you seem to perceive them.
Want to clarify?
May 24, 2016 at 4:10pm
St. Paul writes in 1 Cor 15
But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body…..The splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another……The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
St. Thomas Aquinas said: Man will rise again without any defect of human nature, because as God founded human nature without a defect, even so will He restore it without defect.
I am sure if you don’t like urinating and defecating where you currently do, you can see about a transrectal and transurinary surgery. You may even be able to demand the government finance it. Surely they can relocate the outlet of your waste around your shoulders or your left foot. What to do with your criticisms and juvenile thoughts that are even more wasteful, that is another matter entirely.

Where did you get your PhD and what sort of psychology do you practice? What was your dissertation on?
Am I personally persecuted, yes.
Are Christians persecuted today, yes.
Do I “fantasize” no. But in heaven everyone will be a Christian and worship God.
As for sinners, I am one, so I pray for forgiveness.
I trust God to decide what to do with nonbelievers. My only job is to pray for them and tell them about Jesus.
So, here goes:
Jesus loves you. He is the only begotten Son of God, who became man so that we could know the Fathers’ love and learn to walk in Jesus’ ways. He willingly laid down His life in an excruciating execution – an innocent perfect man (God-man) – because of His love for FestivalGirl. When upon that Cross in utter agony, He thought of you. He prayed for you. And Risen from the dead, he offers you the chance at a new life. A life whose fullness you can’t imagine until you let Him in.
We all have eternal souls. Jesus offers you eternal bliss. God wants very badly for you to accept His love and to love Him in return. How badly? Look at Jesus on the cross.
Remember the Coptic Christians who were murdered on the beach over a year ago? 20 were Christian. One was not. He saw the love these men had for Jesus when given one last chance to deny Jesus.
First one. My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Second. My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Third. My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Fourth My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded..
Fifth. My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Sixth. My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Seventh. My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Eighth My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Ninth My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Tenth My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
11th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
12th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
13. I want their God. Beheaded.
14th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
15th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
16th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
17th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
18Th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
19th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
20th My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
21st My Lord, Jesus. Beheaded.
Jesus is real
May 24, 2016 at 3:01pm
Just one final question for you.
What provision did the Person of Jesus leave us whereby all could know Him? The TRUTH about Him, not unlimited makeovers of Jesus into our own political, sinful images.
May 24, 2016 at 2:58pm
you’ve overwhelmed me with a cacophony of ideas and opinions, thin on facts.
You are the one making claims against 2000 years of taught truth. It is you who diverge from it, so the burden of proof is on you. However, I don’t think you should waste your time with me. I have wrestled through these types of quandries before and there is no other logical, historical, Biblical, or otherwise conclusion to be made. The Church is who she claims she is, or Jesus failed.
For whatever reason you have adopted (without historical, Biblical, logical reasons) the invention of rather recent anti-Catholics that defines the Church as ONLY invisible. If you do that, you can claim the real “church” is out there somewhere.
Not what Jesus prayed for. He was very clear that He prayed for the unity of the Apostles (Yes, predecessors of the BISHOPS) so that the WORLD could see and believe.
Some invisible ephemeral amoebalike nonentity means the Holy Spirit worked AGAINST Jesus’ prayer to guide the church into all confusion, division, separation, and disunity, so that the world could see chaos and disagreement and have a justified reason not to believe.
Sound like God guiding His Church to you? Two Persons of the Trinity working at odds? blasphemy.
If I were an agnostic, I wouldn’t be convinced by 10 different answers from 10 different denominations. I’d say “That’s the best your “god” can do? Forget it then.”
There IS a Church that has never lost visibility or authority.
 May 24, 2016 at 2:38pm
Matt, how about this?
“Hey Christians, put on your spiritual armor against the Evil One. Don’t be fooled by who is behind this, and don’t shake hands with such darkness. Light. Everywhere, bring your light. Be the courageous countercultural warriors Christians have been since 33AD.”
