IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE KUMBAYA...DAMNIT!



As Tim has been alluding to in various posts and comments, there are indeed various stories of clergy gone wild in the 60s and 70s; shameful and depraved behavior that have darkened the hearts of many people. Not all the victims are children sexually abused by priests. There are also women and their families who have been damaged by the philandering actions of clergy who do not live up to their vows. Sadly, it just echoes the rampant adultery and sexual abuse that has been occurring in the society at large for many, many years. We reap the consequences of those actions socially with broken and dysfunctional families, and ecclesiastically with a dysfunctional and divided church. Bravo to those revealing the truth. It is a step toward healing. And it doesn't feel like Kumbaya dammit.


Agree to all of the above with a certain caveat. The behavior of the clergy is not an "echo" of what has been going on in society, but the cause. As the Church goes, so goes the world. The world does not have the grace to conquer the world, the Church does. It is the filth in the church which has given us the filth in the world. Fix the Church. Fix the World. That's how it works. Start now.

  1. My roommate in college suffered because her mother dies of an overdose while her lover/priest was drunk in the basement den. He left early in the morning to say mass. She was discovered three days later. He is still alive and takes his cocktails and dinner at local country club. Insufficient evidence. The 70's

  2. Sounds like you are referring to Fr XXX at XXX. Hmmm...sordid affair worse than dramatic soap opera. We know, so he better shape up or ship out.

    (I had to edit this. No names yet unless you or someone else is willing to come forward and sign a sworn statement. I already know of the priest you are referring to and I know it is true, but I haven't had anyone willing to put their name on it. We have to do things right. Please contact me privately. I want to get all of this out.)

    2. @Anon 11:01 pm. Do you think it's evil to shine the light of truthful testimony on evil acts? I surmise that you do based on your attack on Tim. I suppose those who want to preserve their standing in the community or their NCW foothold on this island would do anything to sweep truthful testimonies under the rug.

      God does not have to have mercy in Tim's soul since he is working to get "EVIL" out of our Catholic Churches! You, on the other hand, needs to have a "Coming to Jesus Meeting" with Your Lord because you are condoning all the evil that is happening now! May Your God Have Mercy "on" Your Sou1 - Well - You might have to "Grow One" before He Does!

    4. Are we all doing the "evil acts"? Which Ten Commandments are we doing to them and yourself? Which two wills of commandments are we doing? Is it the will of the Lords or the will of evils. Free world. We all human being, not God. Pray for them, especially for yourselves. Think about yourself before you judge someone, because the Lords will judge you heaven and earth. I hope you ask the Lords forgiveness before you lay on your own death bed. Think mature, not premature. Help us all.

    5. Yes, we pray @Anon 8:04am, but mercy is tempered with justice.

  3. A good example is Apurhon shipping off L. Camacho so that he would avoid being charged with a crime
