Dear god, I think the moderators should step in and spray for pests.

Those were sincere thoughts about all the abuse.

Now you're making fun of my by line?
Tweet tweet... that's an old by line but still very appropriate for me and my adventure And strive for life.

The thing that I find so sinful here regarding the Catholic Church is that they are in positions of power. Positions of power over the parents and positions of power over the children. And so they are allowed to bend the rules to their favor. In this case the favor and power of being able to abuse children with impunity. If there is any sin on earth…I consider that to be the biggest one of them all.

I am surprised that the Catholic Church can still exist. But this sort of abuse goes on anywhere and everywhere in various institutions where a group of men, mostly, have control over other less powerful human beings. And it is a scenario always fraught with peril.

My bad for seeming to make fun of your byline - not my intent. Given the crazy circumstances engendered by the batsh!t crazy religiosity that gives rise to extended perversity, I tend to whimsical “solutions” that could be diversions from the dark warpages of their natural sexual drives. If only they could dance in the rain in lieu of molesting little boys…

Sadly, as long as the bizarre delusions of their religion exist, there is little we can do about it.

It is as it ever has been. Same old same old. We are animals even if we pretend to be something special.

But they are starting to be held accountable now.

It speaks well for society.

But this kind of crap goes on everywhere all the time and always has. In churches, in schools, in the workplace, in politics. It's especially common among the rich, the poor, and the middle classes.

why did He (in his infinite wisdom) make them so attractive?

That's dangerously close to pedophiles blaming sexy children for their crimes.

My point of view says if you can't be polite and keep it in your pants until it is invited out, then the offending parts need to be removed. We do this all the time with our pets.

No, Logs. MY bad.
Holy moly.
I didn't mean to come off sounding so uptight. I was being silly trying to make a joke. Sometimes I don't do that very well...iyiyi.

I actually love your whimsical ponderings (lol) and was happy I could provide some fodder for your musings.
(there how about that?)

Girls have always been mean to me... cry

Boys, too, come to think of it. I wonder where I put that Tupperware full of worms?

I think flaying might be an apt punishment for those priests.I suspect it was a useful punishment during the Inquisition.

And if that is considered to be too harsh - give them basic medical training and send them to a modern-day leper colony. Villages struck by Ebola, maybe. The worst of the Covid infections. Have them work with the Untouchables in India.
