Sweeney blasts Newark archbishop over handling of priest sex abuse accusations
Saying New Jersey’s top Roman Catholic cleric should feel more “public pressure and public embarrassment” for protecting a priest charged with molesting a boy in 2001, state Senate President Stephen Sweeney on Friday discussed his reasons for joining politicians statewide to call on Newark Archbishop John J. Myers to resign.
Your Holiness, Please hear my words. I have a remarkable idea. Send me a email you want to know about it, please. email@example.com United States of America. Peace be with you.
Why do we allow the CATHOLIC church to continue doing this!!?! People have to stand together & SAY NO MORE & MEAN IT NOT just SUGGEST IT & hope that the Catholic church (Pope ) will finally do what is MORALLY RIGHT!! How many more children are we going to allow the good Pope to cause mental harm to? Is there a number when we the PEOPLE say ENOUGH NO MORE & STAND TOGETHER & DO SOMETHING .
LIKE PERHAPS QUIT ATTENDING & SUPPORTING THE CHURCH THAT PREACHES MORALITY BUT DOESN'T LIVE BY THEM OR THE COMMANDMENTS OF OUR LORD & SAVIOR!!!!
My husband's case. I'm very proud of this man and the strength it took to speak the truth.
Also, to be added. The Catholic Church that "offered counseling" in the statement never actually offered him counseling and never provided any compensation for the counseling he has had to go through due to the abuse.
Is it true that online petitions don't count
of course they count.
We use them to make real world changes. Politicians (and hopefully Popes) see the will of the people expressed collectively and they listen. We've changed laws, ensured justice and protected people through petitions, they work really well!
That isn't true Jessica. Many world leaders have made it very clear that online petitions helped them change their position on important topics. Cynically minded people like to say that. But they're probably the same people that wouldn't lift a finger to try and help other people anyway.
Okk I guess it all comes down to where you live. Thanks for the link Shar Wilson¡ I will post it on my Facebook.
If Jesus returned their would be a house cleaning!
the issue is to stop all abuse of children by anyone. lets remember that. 2 of my 3 sons were a victim of paedophile. the man worked at the school and was also the school santa. so can you imagine sitting on santa lap when he is sexually abusing you for years. i do not hate all santas but i do hate those who harm children
I think while it urgent to protect the children from the abusers - we also take in to consideration that the abusers are sick and they need to be treated too
I agree! Praying for The Church to do the right for righteousness sake.
Yes, the abusers need help but they should get help in JAIL!!!!!
Mary, we agree with you but society needs to protect itself from those who would abuse us. However you look at it putting a self confessed child molesting priest in an environment where is taking confession from children is hardly treatment - more like temptation!
The Pope, is just another DICK, elected to Protect the Church!
THE POPE SHITS, JUST LIKE ANY OTHER, SAYING HE IS THE REPLACER OF GOD HERE ON EARTH...............THERE YOU GOT YOUR BLASHEPEMY
