It’s hard out here for a pope. See, when it comes to religious history, the list of Catholic Church transgressions makes for pretty uncomfortable reading. Despite exalting virtue and kindness in its teaching, church leadership has spearheaded a long history of outright unforgivable Catholic actions.

You might remember some of these improprieties from school – the Inquisition, Joan of Arc, and the trial of Galileo should all ring a bell. But not everything here is medieval. Though Vatican violence goes way back, a number of disturbing episodes are from recent history. Some of this repugnant behavior comes from popes, some was church-endorsed, and some, most unsettlingly, was just straight-up regular church practice.

I want to start off by saying I dont think just because you are catholic or a priest you’re a bad person I’m more talking about the history, principles and actions taken by the catholic church from its conception to now. I will also cede that some good has come out of it although I think the bad heavily outweighs it.

I’ll briefly touch on the pedophilia that is rampant is the catholic church although this is a widely known fact but a less widely known fact is the fact that Pope Francis and some of the highest cardinals were directly implicit in signing and creating documents saying any priests who would admit or talked about that they sexually abused a minor before 10 years after the incident occurred would be excommunicated.

🔴 Negativna dinamika situacije koju diktiramo osnovom krivih uvjerenja. To je vjerovanje da sam koncept vlasti nad drugima može na bilo koji način biti legitiman.

Vjerovanje u vlast je vjerovanje da neki ljudi imaju više prava od drugih. To je vjerovanje da pojedinci sa punim pravom mogu naređivati drugima. To je vjerovanje da su pojedinci punopravni gospodari, dok drugi imaju moralnu obvezu pokoravati se ovoj gospodarskoj klasi koja sebe naziva vlašću…

Prema bilo kojoj istinitoj definiciji, ono što TO zaista jest JE ROPSTVO‼️

CHICAGO (AP) — One day in May of 1970, an 11-year-old boy and his disabled sister were sitting on the curb outside a Chicago tavern, waiting for their mother to come out. When a priest with crinkly eyes and a ready smile happened by and offered the family a ride home, they could not have been happier.

The boy, Robert J. Goldberg, now 61, would pay dearly for the favor, enduring what he describes as years of psychological control and sexual abuse he suffered while working as a child valet for the late Rev. Donald J. McGuire. He remained in the Jesuit’s thrall for nearly 40 years, even volunteering to testify on McGuire’s behalf during criminal trials that ultimately resulted in a 25-year prison sentence for the priest.

But today, Goldberg says he has finally broken the hold McGuire once had on him. And he has begun to tell his story, in interviews with The Associated Press and in a lawsuit he filed Monday in California state court in San Francisco.

The lawsuit charges that McGuire, a globe-trotting Jesuit with ties to Saint Teresa of Calcutta, abused Goldberg “more than 1,000 times, in multiple states and countries,” during sojourns to spiritual retreats throughout the United States and Europe.

Men circled the three women, their fists wrapped around thick iron pipes and wooden sticks. The women huddled on the ground at the center of their village in the western Indian state of Gujarat and whimpered as the crowd gathered. Two young men had died in the village, and the women were being called dakan, the Gujarati word for witch. They were accused of feasting on the young men’s souls.

David – nongovernmental human rights organization the name of millions of the oppressed, deceived, tortured, murdered, robbed SUES THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, HEADQUATERED IN THE VATICAN

The lawsuit is based on the admission by the three most recent popes of the crimes and evils against humans and peoples committed by the Roman Catholic Church throughout history up to the present moment.  

This letter will be sent to the international institutions which in the world represent a morally ethical equivalent of rightfulness, truth and justice to raise their voice and publicly condemn and sanction (prohibit) the religious institution which has done a lot of evil throughout history and still does.

‘It Is Not a Closet. It Is a Cage.’ Gay Catholic Priests Speak Out

The crisis over sexuality in the Catholic Church goes beyond abuse. It goes to the heart of the priesthood, into a closet that is trapping thousands of men.

MILWAUKEE — Gregory Greiten was 17 years old when the priests organized the game. It was 1982 and he was on a retreat with his classmates from St. Lawrence, a Roman Catholic seminary for teenage boys training to become priests. Leaders asked each boy to rank which he would rather be: burned over 90 percent of his body, paraplegic or gay.

Each chose to be scorched or paralyzed. Not one uttered the word “gay.” They called the game the Game of Life.

The lesson stuck. Seven years later, he climbed up into his seminary dorm window and dangled one leg over the edge. “I really am gay,” Father Greiten, now a priest near Milwaukee, remembered telling himself for the first time. “It was like a death sentence.”

Pedophilia has become a huge topic of discussion over recent weeks as not only have sexual abuse outings been taking place in Hollywood, but the exposure of pedophilia in Hollywood and amongst the elite is becoming more common.

The reality of child molestation by the Roman Catholic Church has surfaced time and time again, and yet, somehow, it continues to happen. If you watched the movie Spotlight, perhaps you have an idea of just how things are going down. But let’s break it down to date.

Every June, Catholics around the world are asked to open their wallets and give generously to a charitable appeal called Peter’s Pence.
