Yeah this is despicable. The Governing body of the Catholic Church as a whole has never found a way to help survivors. Their history is horrible at helping the same monsters that hurt so many kids. You cannot sweep that under the carpet. Lobbying of this nature is just more of the same and brands them further as unconcerned for survivors.

I can't imagine any other reaction from that church.

Terribly upsetting...for a number of reasons.

I thought that fights for power and money at the expense of humanity is modern global corporation's job not church's. I guess I was wrong.
Seriously I wonder what socioeconomic framework has allowed "cannibalistic" institution operating under religious cover.
I can't think other on my church as institution when read such stories.

i could argue freedom of religion, as i ritually sacrifice children to tlaloc.
"Common rites carried out during ceremonies were sacrifices of children, whose crying was considered beneficial for obtaining rain, since the tears of new-born children, being strictly connected with the Tlalocan, were pure and precious."

i could claim persecution if anyone stopped me from throwing babies in a fire dedicated to moloch.
"A deity to whom child sacrifices were made throughout the ancient Middle East."

i could use the story of muhammad and aisha to arrange marriage and sex with a girl child bride.
"As an older man of fifty-plus years, Muhammad married a mere child of six years old and co-habited with her when she was 9 years old."
"The Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years."
"When a girl reaches the age of nine, she becomes a woman."

"Aired on LBC TV (Lebanon) - June 19, 2008 :
Dr. Ahmad Al-Mub'i, a Saudi Marriage Official: 'It Is Allowed to Marry a Girl at the Age of One, If Sex Is postponed. The Prophet Muhammad, Whose Model We Follow, Married Aisha When She Was Six and Had Sex with Her When She Was Nine' "

i could cite the scriptural story of jephthah to justify child sacrifice to jehovah (JHVH)
Judges 11:29-40
"Jephthah did indeed kill his daughter because of his vow to God. A vow to God is higher than any other law, so this is what had to happen. Thus, Jephthah simply offered his daughter as a burnt offering."

i did not invent these events.
i do not intend to offend.
i simply discover, disclose, and discuss that which is already written and hidden in plain sight.

one man's religion is another man's atrocity.
