Why Couldn’t They Have Paid Out Just $6,000,000 More?

The Roman Catholic Church in Los Angeles will be paying a $660 million settlement to 508 victims of priestly abuse stretching back to the 1940s.

The total cost for the Roman Catholic Church’s abuse case settlements worldwide is now approximately $2,100,000,000.

The Great Realization estimates there are 24,000 abusive Catholic priests in the world. We also get a link to explanations of why all this happens from one fundie Christian site:

Why are so many perverts in the “priesthood”? I have a few thoughts:

  • The unbiblical requirement for a celibate priesthood.
  • The Catholic religion is not Christian so their priests are not saved and still in their sins.
  • Catholics are trained to look on their priests with awe–Catholic priests are called “another Christ” (which is the definition of antichrist) . This is called brainwashing. Little children and unstable adults are easy victims. Pervert Catholic priests all over the world have been having a field day with people’s lives. They got away with it for centuries, but with the media, people are speaking out now.
  • A lot of Catholic priests don’t even believe in God. The Catholic priesthood is a job. They get adoration from men, a place to sleep, something to eat. A former Catholic related to me that when he was in counseling with his priest the priest told him not to mention God–the priest said his therapist had said that he had to deal with his own problems!

Gotta love how a fundamentalist Christian refers to a Catholic practice as “brainwashing.”

    What I’d really like to see is jail sentences for the perps, not fines to be paid by what is probably the richest religious organization on the planet. Sigh.

    wow the fundies bad mouthing the catholics! Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

    I like how the Catholic priests get adoration from men, but not from women. Guess the women are too smart to adore them?

    It’s actually impressive how much they got wrong about Catholics! (from a former Catholic)
