Hey guys

I just read this headline in the New Youk Times.

Quote:
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston asked a judge to dismiss all the sexual abuse lawsuits against it on religious freedom grounds.
So that is what it is called. Religeous freedom.

It is religeous freedom to go around ruining peoples life.

If that is religeon .......... I don't want any part of religeon.

I might post more after my RAGE is gone.

John

Hi John,

I can't imagine how that could be relgious freedom.

It is NOT religion--don't lose your faith over a headline. This is just trying to avoid pain and more disgrace instead of working day and night to reach out to the victims and help them in every way they can.

Again, I feel it is ministry guided by the lawyers instead of the Gospel.

Take a deep breath John. You are too valuable to let crap like this ruin your day.

Peace to you friend.

Bob

How can someone actually stand in a courtroom and say that ?

Their conscience should haunt them for life.

John.

I understand your rage, but as others have said, don't let the rage get the better of you. Why these people think they can dismiss their responsibilty is beyond me. They aren't truly religious, they are the scum who justify their needs in the name of God. Sadly I think many religions are Hijaked in this way. That is why I'm still searching for a religion that suits me. I may never find one, but it wont stop me searching. But there are good people out there.

I want to thank everybody for responding. After I settled down I got to thinking about a song that was popular in the 70's. ( at least I think it was the 70's) It was sung by Sonny and Cher and they even had a 70's version of a music video. I think the song was called "One tin soldier".

I can remember part of the song ..... and all of the chorus.

The chorus was

Quote:
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of heaven
you can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
come the judgement day
On the bloody morning after ...
One tin soldier rode away
I still am finding it hard to put it into words the way I am feeling. The way that my church has treated me is especially disturbing. My church has told me that what my perp did to me is my problem and I MY problem and I need to deal with it.

How can a person that preaches love and compassion for all people dismiss the situation with a simple ....."it is your problem ..... deal with it."

I wish it were that easy. If anyone has a magic wand that they can lend me that they can wave and make the pain go away .... my I borrow it.

John

I aint got a magic wand John, I wish I had.

All I can give is support, encouragement and friendship.

Be strong, that's an awful betrayal you've been through.
