MARRIED TO CHRIST

Posted by Tim

In the post below, Rose de los Reyes has shared more about this brutal truth which takes the clergy sex abuse crisis to a whole different level: the fathering of children and then their abandonment - with the help of the church which you and I support. 

Immoral and corrupt clergy are as old as Judas himself, and as a percentage of the population, there are probably no more of these bad guys than are in the rest of our society, in fact, perhaps even less. And certainly there are good and saintly clergy. Much more. Many more. 

It is time though to turn our sights on a different sort of abuse. And from Rose's comments, I believe the book she references gets into it: a certain cult of acceptance, not only for the fathering of children, but more generally, for the sexual dalliances of the ordained.

In fact, it is more than a cult of acceptance. It is a cult of purposeful flirtation, seduction, and even competition among women to "score" a priest, or at least a seminarian. 

I'm going to stop here because I'm angry. I have seen it...and it sickens me. It sickens me as much or more as when I see a pathetic, aging male trying to pick up on another man's wife. In fact, it is much worse. For the target of these women's diseased affections is MARRIED TO CHRIST. 

"The floor of hell..."
