Pope declares 'zero tolerance' for sexual abuse in Catholic church

Postby Nobrot » Tue Jan 03, 2017 4:06 am

How very noble.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jan/03/pope-declares-zero-tolerance-for-sexual-abuse-in-catholic-church 

A question for pope Frankie: Where is Cardinal Pell?

Edit:
"I would like us to renew our complete commitment to ensuring that these atrocities [highlight=yellow]will no longer take place in our midst"

Clearly I'm unfamiliar with this sites hideously complicate formatting malarkey, but I'm following that guardian article like flies on a resurrected haddock.
Now cop for this:

"The church recognises the sins of some of her members: the sufferings, the experiences and the pain of minors who were abused sexually by priests. It is a sin that shames us,” Francis wrote in the letter.

If hovering over the buttons in the editor doesn't cut it, some additional help can also be found here. Or simply ask. :-D

I know it's easy but I'm chemist and can't find it; just like pope Frankie can't find Cardinal Pell.

Use the quotation button in the upper right corner of any post. Or use the fourth button from the left in the editor (copy paste text, or you can also simply write the brackets yourself. But quoting a handle needs to be like [quote="handle"]) If you hover over the others, you can see what they do. The x (delete post) only appears in your own post if it's the last one in a topic.

Anne Barrett-Doyle, founder of the US-based research and monitoring group BishopAccountablity.org, said in an email that the pope’s words were shite. (sic)

Usually I do what scrambledeggs did and just manually type the word "quote" (or 'quote="One More Gord"') in the [] boxes. No buttons required that way.

It all springs from their anti-female position that is NOT supported by the Bible at all which springs from wanting to spend as little money as possible on the hired help.

Its always the money.

Ummmm..... of course..... the Bible IS anti-female. Just not on the point the Catholics take that they can't be part of the controlling hierarchy.

Pros and Cons. Exclude women..... and you are going to get Homos. Its a fact: look it up.
