Yeah sure, it's all a conspiracy by teh gheys.
Do you have anything to say that isn't conservative bias hogwash?

Right, because this is not a problem that has existed for centuries
4/21/2010 4:40:38 AM
Yep, that's the explanation. "We are under attack, whaaaaaah". It's not that such an organization as the church, that thrives on secrecy and privilege, invites abuse of all sorts. Don't look at the pattern of cover-ups, the shifting of guilty priests from parish to parish, just scream about conspiracy and persecution.
Where's the Pac Man chart when you need it.

Infiltration? It's starting to seem like being a pedophile (which you misspelled) is a requirement.
4/21/2010 4:41:22 AM
Then the war has been raging for quite a while now. There have been pedophiles and other manner of perverts in the church well before modern times. And no, homosexuals don't count as perverts.

Abstinence makes the church grow fondlers.
Somebody call a fucking waaaaambulance.

Indeed, many Christian priests are actively homosexual, that's up to them, but I do agree, many Christian priests are also actively perverted. But, if there has been any purposeful design to undermine the reputation of the priesthood, it must have begun many centuries ago, indeed, it must have started with the formation of Christianity and developed through the ages from there.
Of course, it is becoming much harder for Christianity to cover up its dirty little secrets and much more difficult to frighten its followers these days. I think that a career as a Christian priest has suddenly become less attractive now that certain little perks of the job loom so largely in the public sphere thereby making them more difficult to receive.

Homosexuals have been part of the priesthood for centuries because it relieved them of the obligation to marry and allowed to them live with members of the same sex, some of whom were also homosexual. The same thing goes for nuns. It provided a safe alternative to marriage for those who were not interested in the opposite sex. It had nothing to do with infiltration, and was not about perversion.
As to pedophiles, pedophiles are attracted to positions that allow them unfettered access to children. That is why there are so many priests who are pedophiles. Without fingerprinting and background checks, there would be a lot of pedophile teachers, too.

A HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW! Aye, right, "infiltration".

Oh please, the catholic church doesn't need to be smeared. They are smearing themselves just fine without our assistance.
4/21/2010 5:37:10 AM
Nothing to do with banning active, monogamous heterosexuals from the priesthood, then?
4/21/2010 5:39:49 AM
Supposedly, they were intelligent enough not to allow it to happen. Whatever angle you look at it, it's always a loss.
4/21/2010 5:41:37 AM
Yes the gays are everywhere... even in the Church. Time for a good old fashioned witchhunt.

There's a scene in the movie Clue where Col. Mustard (played by Martin Mull) is squaring off against Wadsworth the butler (played by Tim Curry). The dialogue goes like this:
COL MUSTARD: Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?
WADSWORTH: I'm afraid you don't need any help from me, sir.
COL MUSTARD: That's right!

Actually I think the priests are only pretending to be kiddie-fiddlers so as to discredit the good name of NAMBLA by association with their own vile beliefs.
Hey, as a theory it's got as much evidence going for it as your horseshit!
4/21/2010 6:54:24 AM
No, they got us. Its a gey conspiracy. I will be shipped to a boston parish next week.
4/21/2010 6:59:25 AM
I lol'd. Then I realized he was serious.
4/21/2010 7:11:09 AM
I diddn't realise that homosexuals were so well organized, and at war with christianity, and winning.
4/21/2010 7:25:23 AM
The reputation of the priesthood was undermined the second the first Pope declared another sect of Christianity heretical.
4/21/2010 7:30:18 AM
I can't see where he wrote 'paedophile', but if he spelt it with the 'a' it's because it's the original British spelling
4/21/2010 7:41:01 AM
Homosexuality is just as responsible for pedophile priest just as much as I am for forming the Grand Canyon.
4/21/2010 7:59:06 AM
It's that you actually might believe this that terrifies me.
4/21/2010 8:08:25 AM
There's a war on Christianity? Why am I always the last to know these things.
When are we bringing back the lions?
4/21/2010 8:18:38 AM
"Catholicism has been the infiltration of the priesthood by active homosexuals and perverts, specifically to undermine the reputation of the priesthood"
So Catholic priests have been infiltrating their own religion, undermining the paedophilia that exists there already?
Dr. Watson gazing into a toilet containing nothing but water springs to mind right now.
But then, it's not as if there's never been any infiltration of Protestant Fundamentalist Christianity by active homosexuals and perverts, specifically to undermine the reputation of the Religious Right...:
"There's a war on Christianity?"
More like a Civil War. And the following are the fundie Kamikaze:
David J. Stewart
Every one a perpetual P.R. traincrash. If there's a 'War on Christianity' going on, then it's a one-sided battle, with the fundies on a suicidal one-way trip to oblivion.
And we Atheists don't have to lift a finger.
Not for nothing is our star on the ascendant.

No, it's true, dude, I was at the gay meeting where we put forward this plan of action and elected an executive committee to oversee it.
