RE: Why the Pope and his minions will burn in Hell!
sup LK? just a note from my perspective. I ask myself how men like the ones you've described can call themselves "men of God" and still do what they have to children. As I've said before, I can't know that there is a God until I see Him or He makes Himself known to me. I hope there is a God for this reason alone: That in the end, when justice seems to have been cheated, that said God can even things out somehow. I think these molestors found a position of trust and power so as to more easily exploit thier victims and hide their behaviors. I'm equally disgusted at what they've done.
It shows me that evil resides in even the most trusted places. The net effect is many fold in it's damage to humanity. Aside from the obvious pyscho/emotional damage to the victims, the revelation of the truth shakes the foundation of belief structures for those of us who look on with disgust. We are repulsed by the acts and the individuals. We tend to turn our backs on them and the church altogether. That is understandable....it is human nature.
Respectfully, I must urge you, my friend, to see that there is good in religion relative to pricipled council as to the path of least resistence through life. Though some men/women abuse thier positions and though some act in ways that are offensive, is it possible that we can separate the human from the wise teachings?
Again, I am not a religious man by nature. I don't always choose the right as a first instinct. I have found though, that some of the lessons taught by religious institutions have actually made my life easier to live. As a friend, I hope you could find that easier course. Good luck LK, I am sorry for your friend's suffering. Having never experienced such a disgraceful betrayal, I can't conceive of how bitter I would be, were I in his shoes.
