    Hi @CoreIssue......Is the CC the only Church that has sinners?

    Are you able to find any links to articles talking about Protestant Church scandals?

    A big diff might be that none of them have claimed to be the Vicar of Christ though Mary

    Hi and thank you for joining the conversation. I’m not sure what your obvious statemtent has to do with sinners being in other churches beside the Catholic Church.

    Those other churches claim the the CC is wrong in it’s teachings and they are right in their teachings. They believe they have the Truth just like the CC believes it has the Truth. Soooo in effect they are claiming to be the Vicar of Christ ALSO without coming right out and saying it. Do they have sinners in them?

    Who is the Vicar of Christ on earth?

    No, i get it. Your goal is only to point out the sins of the men in the CC. You are clearly only upset with and wish to point out the sins of the men in the CC.

    How heavy was that stone you threw? Why have you made the choice to only throw stones at Catholic men?

    The topic is not Protestant problems.

    You are fully free to start a thread on that topic if you wish.

    What you're trying to do here is to distract from and defend the Catholic Church.

    Sooooo you don’t know what the definition of Vicar is or there is not any person/church that represents Christ’s Truth here on earth?

    Clearly the topic is about the sins of the men of the CC. I do NOT wish or plan to throw stones at any man sooo I will NOT be starting a hypocritical stone throwing topic about any sinner for I am a sinner.

    How heavy was that stone you threw at those men?

    Let me be very clear. I only want to know about the stone you have thrown at Catholic men....Not Protestant men. I am, as you are, solely focused on the stone that you used on Catholic men.

    What you are apparently trying to distract from is that these men are in leadership and the Bible is VERY clear about who is and who is not eligible for leadership in churches. Do most RC men sexually abuse children? If not (and I don't believe the average RC man does sexually abuse children) why should they be led by the worst sort of sinners? Jesus Himself had very harsh words for people who would sexually abuse children as well as tempting young teen boys to sin (see Luke 17:2). In the ancient Middle East, the heathens and pagans were guilty of such (and worse) and God routed them out of the Land. He told Israel that if they did such things, that the Land would "vomit" them out as well. Will the RCC "vomit" out these men from their midst?

    The doctrine of 'priestly' celibacy has been responsible for a lot, over the centuries.

    I don't think it all can be blamed on priestly celibacy. I know a man who left an RCC seminary because a majority of the men there were sexually perverted and spoke openly about it. This should not be.

    Proving my point that not every doctrine is "sound" doctrine.

    That is called dodging the issue. You as a Catholic should be the first to confront your church and ask the Pope and his prelates why they have been colluding with the evil and perverted priests and bishops by refusing to deal with the scandalous sexual abuses which have already been documented throughout the world. If not, you become partaker of their sins.
