Joe, the Bible is true because God guided the Catholic Church, His Church, to say so.

why? what’s going on?

They were men attracted to teenage boys. Catholics believe acting on that is a sin.
If you do, then you agree with the Church. There were too many. One is too many. But you don’t condemn the Church because of the sins of some, no matter how big the sins. The Church exists to bring God’s mercy into the world.
Were you abused by a priest? If not, why is it so hard for you to show mercy?
Christians must do so.
You can see atheists and muslims don’t have to. I prefer people of mercy and love over hate and constant accusing by mere association.
Your logic, even if you don’t see it, leads to this:
All the molesters were men. For eternity, we will hate them and not listen to them.
S G Applebee is a man.
Therefore for eternity people should hate S G Applebee and not listen to him.
I suggest you find a new excuse to reject the Truth of God as protected and conveyed by the Catholic Church.

Right in part. False religions are invented by men searching for the one true God.
True religion isn’t man made.
After choosing and preparing the Jews, God came as a Jewish man, died, rose from the dead, started a Church, left men in charge, then ascended into heaven.

@Wow and friends,
I find it strange you don’t know about your own kind and what they do.
it’s a long list.
130 million in the last century – Communist China, USSR, Nazis. All atheist.
April 28, 2015 at 7:29am
Long history, you say? Good point. Weakens your own. Explain how the Church as corrupt as you say it is can last 2000 years without the help of the Holy Spirit. Even Pagan Rome, which was most powerful, vicious and corrupt, couldn’t last that long.
The sins of a small number of bad people doesn’t make the Truth untrue. It means the devil has made a good try but failed to bring down God’s Church.
Protestants suffer as big of a problem, and public schools have more than double the problem. It’s usually men. Are you a man?
If you are, how dare you enjoy the prestige and credibility of a man. How could you, as a man, do nothing about perverted men who go after teenager boys? How could you, as a man, do nothing about daddies who harm their daughters and sons? What does that say about the institution of fatherhood? How dare fathers exist!
April 28, 2015 at 7:21am
@who, the ideology of atheists is that this life is all there is, that there is no truth.
That doesn’t sit well with those of us who know life is precious and to think about the generations to come, and that there is Truth by which our moral life is established. Without that moral life in the world, there can be no peace or fulfillment.

JRook, you are SURE he is Christian?
How could you be sure? He slanders Christians when they uphold God’s Word. He said God bless Planned Parenthood and would rather his own grandchild be killed than have his daughter be inconvenienced. That is not Christian.
Anyone who encourages or justifies the murder of innocent life is, by definition, not Christian.
He doesn’t go to church. Things he says and does are against God’s Word.
He has lied as long as he’s been in the public. His biography is a lie. He doesn’t love or attend to his wife or children like a Christian should. He’d rather spend every romantic occasion with men and no children. He has violated the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth commandment and showed no repentance or efforts to change.
What is Christian? Going to a church of another denomination than your own 3 times in 7 years? Atheists do that for weddings, would you say they’re Christian?
 April 27, 2015 at 2:53pm
Catholics pray on Hitler’s birthday? Now that’s funny.
Catholics pray on your birthday, too.
And every day in between.

Whom have you seen him worship.
April 27, 2015 at 2:18pm
Zappa, what religion do you think he practices?
 April 27, 2015 at 2:16pm
If he worships any god it is his own mirror image.

I think we are currently seeing what electing an atheist does.
I think a persons values and their concept of morality is a better judge than their religion or lack thereof. I'd personally vote for Penn Jillette for any office he ran, and yet Reverend Al Sharpton would destroy America faster than the current tyrant.
However to be clear, it's easier to understand someone's values and concept of morality if they are strongly rooted in religious beliefs about a merciful, peaceful, God whose judgment will be the final word.
Just like we saw what a bible thumper did in the previous administration.
Ya, because having someone who believes in magic, as president, is a really good idea.
LestWeForget: "I think we are currently seeing what electing an atheist does."
But wait! I thought some of us elected a Socialist, Marxist, extreme Black Liberation Theology following, capitalism-hating American-destroying Muslim?!?!?
Now you're telling us Obama is an atheist!!!
I really wish you folks would make up our minds for us.
....And any hope of a productive discussion was lost.
Hallowell's most recent red meat to the paid-progs of this site. All I needed to see were just a few of the usual suspects to know I'd be wasting my time here.
Enjoy your sinking ship, subscribers. The crew has lost their sense of direction, and the lower deck doesn't care about the leaks.
The Constitution makes it clear that religion shall not be a consideration for holding an office. However, the Founders also made it known that the US Constitution would only support a virtuous and religious citizenry. America was founded on Judeo Christian values. I don’t care what a politician says today, most of them serve the master of all lies, Lucifer.
Im confused, is he an atheist or a muslim?
Why should a "priest" be taking heat for expressing his religious beliefs? We're upside down here!
He is 100% correct!
I'm sure the PREDENT is every bit a christian as you are. Difference is he would show you a level of respect you don't deserve. As for Father Jonathan Morris I would suggest that the Priests who sexually abused boys and girls along with the bishops and cardinals who actively looked the other way and covered it up were faking their faith and objection to homosexuality.
107,047,000 lives taken by atheists in the 20th century
Note a couple of things: atheist regimes are a fairly new creation historically speaking, so this number will undoubtedly rise….perhaps even multiply. Another thing of note, these numbers are all at their absolute lowest estimate. So it is possible that the number of innocent men women and children butchered by atheists is much higher than 107,047,000.
Political theorist, John Locke, whom many of us have at least heard of or own complete works of, said that atheists are “threats to social order and state security”
If we had listened to Locke, then perhaps 100 million people would be alive today, safe from the bullets and knives of atheist tyrants.

They are helping her in two ways. One, teaching her there are responsibilities you have to keep. If the school bent over backwards to accommodate her and she still, though cancer free, is not going to school, it’s her and her parents’ failure to keep up their end of the deal.
It’s life. It’s conservative. Life isn’t participation trophies for no effort.
Two, if she transfers to public school they can accommodate her with state funds (home visiting teacher/tutor). Or if the parents use their money to purchase a homeschool plan instead of private school tuition.
The decision would free up a spot, and perhaps a scholarship to a child who wants to attend and learn.
If your business was bullied online would you try to mitigate the damage and reconsider? I don’t agree with their decision to cave to the bully parents but I understand why the school felt it had to: Because under privacy laws they can’t DEFEND or explain. It is a lose lose for them. The parents know this. They are painted into a corner because the parents can talk and accuse but the school can’t say what this girl and her family are doing/not doing.
Gentle people are not used to wolves and the internet is a place where emotions rule and society suffers as a result.
I just expected Blazers (most claim to be conservative) to have cool heads and think with reason not emotion.
I think your idea of homeschooling was good – but with homework and tests sent home, the parents didn’t do it, so now what?
April 27, 2015 at 8:46am
there really isn’t Tithing in the Catholic Church. There is generous giving.
I get it that you have alot of people getting unfair treatment. No work or less work for equal pay, special treatment or that sort of thing. Same with this story, no work or less work but she wants special treatment.
It seems to me you have more in common with the decision of the school than with the parents who want to break the rules, not try, and make a fuss like progs do when they don’t get their way. character assassination through social media. they’re bullies.
Surprised you didn’t make that connection.
Conservatives believe a private school or business should be able to set and uphold its own standards. Liberals would give her a trophy for skipping school for 60 days after she was told she is no longer sick.
Catholics do not vote overwhelmingly democrat in America. Those who go to Mass vote probably 85% GOP. Those who DO NOT PRACTICE but call themselves Catholic vote liberal. Because they choose politics over God. What do you do about it?
If you want to compare Catholicism to Protestantism, you will need to know more than you do. Start with history of American religion. Catholics were not treated well. Then move to England where they were slaughtered by Protestants. History is ugly on both sides because men sin. But Jesus built one Church and never left it. Not 30,000.
April 27, 2015 at 8:04am
Based on her attendance, drgermain, I don’t think she does.
She’s been cancer free and still not going to school to see them.
April 27, 2015 at 8:01am
She can’t see friends at school if she doesn’t go.
April 27, 2015 at 8:00am
Right. They should have no rules or standards. Participation trophies for everybody!
Careful blazers, your liberal is showing.
April 27, 2015 at 7:57am
If you are told there is a consequence, and you do it anyway, who’s to blame?
The answer determines if you are a flaming lib or a solid conservative.
How is she being treated? Told by mom and dad her homework and tests aren’t important? Told don’t go to school even though you are better? Told to ignore the expulsion warnings because we will play on the emotions using the media and this school can’t defend itself because of privacy laws? Treated badly if that’s the case.
If she is embarrassed, it was the parents that made it public. She has been cancer free for at least 60 school days and probably getting better before December. So, in those 80-100 school days, she has missed 3-4 days a week. While Being Cancer Free.
These parents and some commenters are piling on this school with no facts and acting like liberal bullies, making decisions on emotion.
Conservatives let schools and businesses make decisions and uphold standards. We wish our country did the same. With compassion. The parents rejected months of those efforts and best tries from the school. At some point, too much compassion becomes social promotion and participation trophies, which isn’t compassion at all.
