    just wondering.... Personally, I would have removed any donations to the church the second the extent of the pedophilia was exposed.

    I see no difference between tithing to the catholic church and donating to NAMBLA

    I totally agree. Giving money to the catholic church now is nothing but supporting child abuse.

    The catholic church has more then enough money to pay for any and all legal issues they have without asking for "donations"

    You honestly don't see the difference between donating money to an organization dedicated to having sex with children vs an organization that teaches good morals where a few local leaders are sick pieces of crap?

    1) I don't consider hating of gays and women submitting to men as good morals, along with a number of other things

    2) it wasn't 'a few local leaders', it was rampant throughout the western world and the now leader of the group was one of the biggest people involved in the cover up.

    You're blaming the Catholic people for what the Hierarchy of the Church is doing?

    I'm catholic, everybody I know disproves of this. (who wouldn't anyway?)

    I didn't blame the catholic people for anything, unless they tithe, which means they are donating to the defense of pedophiles

    Most of the time these scandals happen in very few places. Sure it may sound like it's everywhere thanks to the media, but every church I've went to the Priest has always condemn those priests and what the Hierarchy is handling it.

    Point being, when you donate to the church you're donating for the people.


    Honestly, I know how you're seeing this, because frankly I just think if they let Priests marry all these scandals would go down in numbers. Don't you think?
