xtreemnews.com - Catholic Church: No Surprise About Homosexuality, Pedophilia and Porn Rings
How long will the nations of peoples tolerate a profoundly perverse Church?
Are we really expecting 'to be saved' from a Church who for centuries has practiced this immoral behavior and has literally been cut off from the Creator? A reality check is in order. Let's ALL face it, the Catholic Church can't even save itself at this point let alone any of us.
When was the last time you heard the Catholic Church quote scriptures? Or encourage you to read your bible? This week, a published article stated that the Pope 'rules by his own personal authority, rather than the authority of the Scripture' and he can change anything he wants to at any given time (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/fr.-tom-rosica-praises-pope-francis-reign-he-breaks-catholic-traditions-whe) .... Oh? Why would he NOT follow scriptures as the Vatican Advisor stated that the scriptures do indeed carry authority? A Church supposedly descended from "St Peter" is expected to at least follow what was written in the scriptures and yet the Pope chooses to cast aside what has been written in the scriptures. Well, what then is the Catholic Church dogma based on? Surely, not the scriptures.
But we digress.. our focus is the current scandal that engulfs the Catholic Church today: Pedophilia, Homosexuality and Pornography. Words that should NEVER be associated with a religion, and yet, it is. This week, the long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in Pennsylvania dioceses, was finally released. (https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2018/08/14/pennsylvania-diocese-sex-abuse-grand-jury-report-released/). We knew it was going to be shocking. Bishops and Cardinals tried to brace us but we were still mortified. (https://cleveland.cbslocal.com/video/category/news-local-news/3912087-its-going-to-be-tough-bishop-david-zubik-tries-to-prepare-parishioners-for-grand-jury-report-release/)
1,000 child victims, 301 ‘Predator Priests’, children raped, sodomized, pornographic photos, 'groomings', church assisted abortions, threats, cover ups.... you name it, it was done to these children. Pennsylvania Attorney General reveals some of the horrors here in this video interview (https://6abc.com/jim-gardner-speaks-with-ag-josh-shapiro-on-pa-priest-sex-abuse-report/3958231/) Here are 7 Excerpts From the Grand Jury Report, just an outline of some of the litany of disturbing cases (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/14/us/catholic-priests-pennsylvania-church-jury.html)
Last week, a Jesuit priest admitted that he was not 'surprised' by the new reports of abuse, and said 'I do not think it will stop soon'. (http://catholicphilly.com/2018/08/news/world-news/abuse-expert-crisis-is-call-to-new-vision-of-priesthood-accountability/)
Recently Pennsylvania, previously it was Australia. No continent or nation has been left untouched by the sexual improprieties of the Catholic Church. In fact, some have elevated the Catholic Church crimes to 'Crimes Against Humanity' (https://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au/sites/default/files/SUBM.0046.001.0953.pdf) and currently, the Pope has been named in the international criminal court as a Ninth Circle sacrificial cult member and must answer charges against him.

The Vatican Has Been Aware of Abuse for Centuries. (http://articles.latimes.com/2004/jun/20/local/me-priests20) They have done NOTHING ABOUT IT! Their 'DECADES OF DAMAGE' has left a Trail of Pain in Nearly Every Diocese (https://www.nytimes.com/2003/01/12/us/decades-of-damage-trail-of-pain-in-church-crisis-leads-to-nearly-every-diocese.html)
Australia was heinous. Abuse so deep they are still reeling from the fallout. 4 Thousand and 444 victims. 4444... The number is staggering. (https://www.theherald.com.au/story/4450546/crimes-of-the-century/).
But, sexual abuse is not new with the Catholic Church. Here is a brief modern timeline of abuse from 1985 (https://www.pennlive.com/expo/news/erry-2018/08/6e463003c21010/timeline-of-catholic-clergy-ch.html). And, that DOES NOT INCLUDE CENTURIES OF ABUSE. Their crimes have just been exposed within the past 30 years but this is a pattern.. they have been doing it for centuries! (https://www.opendemocracy.net/tina-beattie/catholic-church%E2%80%99s-abuse-scandal-modern-crisis-ancient-roots)
Go online yourself and you will see this is nothing new with the Catholic Church. Feigning holiness, preaching self made 'traditions' instead of biblical truths. It's no wonder the Book of Revelation Chapter 17 calls this Church the "The Great Whore, MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS"!
Oh, and NO APOLOGIES from this Church. NOT ONE! Even for the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Abuse Report, The Vatican only responded by saying that they felt 'shame and sorrow' (https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2018-08/vatican-responds-to-pennsylvania-grand-jury-abuse-report.html) Interesting thing about 'shame and sorrow' ..it doesn't remove crimes nor does it offer an admittance of guilt!
As for money, these scandals have cost the Catholic Church Billions... and you wonder where your coffer donations are going..... (https://www.npr.org/2018/08/18/639698062/the-clergy-abuse-crisis-has-cost-the-catholic-church-3-billion)
