    An Italian exorcist made this comment about Satan being in the MEDIA :lol:
    I guess with the hundreds and who knows how many thousands of molestations and destroyed lives of children means that Satan is also in the CHURCHES too, right? Of course, it's a given. My question is, why so many 'holy men' with degrees in theology knowing much more than the average Joe, would stoop to such perversion, not just once, but over and over?

    Like I mentioned in another thread,first, get these guys out of 'dresses' and let them marry a woman and go forth and multiply!

    Satan behind media attacks on the Pope, asserts Italian exorcist :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

    He says:
    Well, I must be really holy, I am tempted all the time, I guess the irresistible urge to BLOG in USMB, cuss and drink coffee and get excited at those HOT Avatars makes me one of the fallen. :lol:

    Satan in the media, that's it, don't blame your own people, blame some entity, yup, "The Devil Made Me Do It".........give me a break :cuckoo:

    What is it with non-Catholics and their obsession about telling Catholics how our priests should live their lives? Seriously, if our religion demands celibacy of from our priests, what the hell does that have to do with you? How exactly does the way our priests dress affect you? Mind your own damned business.

    Of course, Catholics and non Catholics should be concerned about child abuse within the Church, and you are as entitled to have a valid opinion on that but.... when it comes to how our priests live and dress.... mind your own fucking business.

    Maybe if priests were to join a union they'd get off their backs.

    I believe the incidence of child-molestation is higher when it comes to schoolteachers...but then they don't have a media going after them because they're Christians or some other terrible belief.

    We can be Communists, Marxists, Socialists, Muslims, or Progressives....but don't you dare be a gun-toter or a Bible-banger...and don't under and circumstance be a Tea-Party member.

    It is somewhat beyond my comprehension that people think they should voice an opinion when they clearly have absolutely NO substance on which to form an opinion.

    Does the OP know why our priests dress the way they do? No. (Unless they google it, read some ridiculous babble by someone who also doesn't have a clue)

    Does the OP know why our priests are celibate? No. (Unless they google that too).

    I find the following advice helpful when posting:

    1. Insert brain.

    2. Think.

    3. Post

    Why some people skip steps 1 and 2 and just go straight to 3 is beyond me.

    I am not, a non-Catholic, however this church has refused to effectively address this issue for decades and I for one am totally PISSED at this churches INACTION and transferring to other locations of the alleged offenders. It IS my business, AND it is EVERYONES business who feel the welfare of children should be monitored.

    This is not a 'bash the Catholic church thread' and I am NOT bashing them, it's about any organization that makes the news with this kind of garbage.

    Show me anywhere in the Bible where God, or anyone else says a priest or Bishop, should remain celibate, I am ready to be enlightened. And not some Church made up doctrine that God had no hand in.

    May I suggest: 1st TIMOTHY and look at 1 TIM 3.

    If you're a Catholic, then you really should know why priests are celibate, and the significance of their 'dress'. If not, then you're not much of a Catholic.

    You can suggest whatever you want, I can come back and list several to cite differently. Anyone - Catholic or not - can quote the bible to back up their view. That's just stupid. If you're Catholic, you know why and you really should need to ask.

    Of course everyone should be concerned about child abuse.... but your thread was not about the abuse.... it was about satan in the media.... until you decided to make it about celibacy and 'dress'.

    Make up your mind what your issue is and maybe I'll be bothered to respond. But right now, it's just drivel.

    I have a question for the catholics


    Why aren't preists allowed to marry?

    (The issue of clothing is not important. Remember, men left casual "dresses" along time ago, letting women and men of certain cultures/professions dominate the wearing of that attire.)

    Why are Catholic priests celibate?

    Because the man who became pope in the 13th century or so had caught syphilis from visiting a brothel. Up until he became pope, priests regularly visited brothels and remained single.

    But, because this idiot caught the clap, he decided to ban all sex within the priesthood.

    Despite the 'wisdom' of AGayBikerBoy, he is, in fact, wrong. I know that is a horrifying thought but it happens more often than even AGayBiker would admit.

    The actual reason that Priests are celibate is because Christ never married - Christ devoted himself to his ministry. As do they. Quite straightforward really.
