Francis, the Talking Pope, has announced a new, improved official policy regarding bishops who "mishandle sexual abuse" cases.  This seems redundant, as clearly HRCC has had a policy in place for at least most of my lifetime, and almost certainly many more years than that.

 

Case in point, the Catholic Church priest rape scandal began in Boston during the tenure of then Archbishop Bernard Francis Law. After years of scandalous revelations, one after another, it became blatantly self evident that the Catholic Church was operating a secret New Parish Merry Go Round, and that every time a priest was caught molesting a child they got a free ride.

 

Eventually there were steadily increasing calls for the arrest and prosecution of by then Cardinal Law, and just as the furor in the press reached fever pitch, Cardinal Law was "promoted" to the Vatican.  Since it is a make-believe nation this puts Cardinal Law beyond the reach of US prosecutors, there is no extradition treaty between the US and Make Believe City.

 

So, I wonder is the new form of punishment worse in any way than the current reward structure?

 

 

"Let us hear the cry of the victims and those suffering, no family without a home, no child without a childhood," Francis tweeted on Saturday.

The Holy Roman Catholic Church is the undisputed world leader in child molestations.

Any why are people still catholic!?

 

Just as a newborn child has virtually no immune system defenses, so too young children have not yet developed critical thinking skills, and so they are powerless to recognize bullshit.

 

If the social standard was to refrain from indoctrinating children in the ways of the stupid until they did have critical thinking skills, the incidence of religious delusions would drop dramatically.

 

It is simply very easy to infect a young human mind with malicious falsehoods.

Yes, but the adults should be leaving in droves, & the kids would follow.

That's what is happening in a lot of parishes, but it is not universal yet.  All across the US HRCC is in decline except in largely Hispanic areas.  For some reason Mexican Americans often seem to suffer from more severe religious delusions that are highly resistant to intrusions of reality.   Catholicism has infected their culture deeply.    Sometimes a fierce devotion to family can be exploited by a greedy corporation, just sayin'.

Our aboriginals in Canada are mostly all catholic too, & after the atrocities that went on in the residential schools they were forced into after being removed from the parents, you'd think they'd be running out at lightning speed.

There has been a steady decline of RCs in both the UK and Eire.

E&W.
The decline in the Catholic Church in England and Wales is recognised by the RC Church itself, quote:
An estimated 3.8 million English and Welsh adults identify as Catholic. Meanwhile, an estimated 6.2 million say that they were brought up Catholic.
For every one Catholic convert there are 10 cradle Catholics who no longer regard themselves to be Catholic. For every one Anglican convert there are 12 cradle Anglicans who no longer regard themselves to be Anglican. Source:

NI.
There is a sectarian consideration in Northern Ireland, quote:

The Catholic community are no longer buying what Sinn Féin and the SDLP are selling on constitutional matters. Something seriously dramatic would need to take place to transform their outlook from the current general contentment with the status quo.
Such as, for instance, Northern Ireland leaving the European Union whilst the Republic stays in. Source:

Eire:
Quote:
Attendances at mass are set to fall by a third between now and 2030, on top of a 20% drop between 2008 and 2014. The church can expect to recruit one new priest under the age of 40 each year. As incumbents retire or die, there is likely to be a fall of up to 70% in the number of working priests, and about three-quarters of those remaining in post will be over the age of 60. The church must consider recruiting priests from other countries and encouraging existing priests to work beyond the age of 75, the report said. Source:

RC is declining in Scotland too. The indoctrination isn’t sticking these days, so steady decline continues. There's lots of good news in this world today.
