What is your opinion regarding all of these posts regarding the RC Church? Your opinion is valuable, and all of this news doesn't seem to get anybody anywhere.


It is better to be Dragon Master than Dragon Slayer. Some Dragons are meant to be mastered, others meant to be slain. Odin, Great Spirit, God, grant me the wisdom to know the difference. "May the Valar guide and bless you on your path under the sky"

My feeling is that this section is an archive of articles related to sexual abuse of boys, and obviously recently this has mainly meant articles related to the Church scandals. I have tried not to offer opinions here, but simply to list the articles on the web site as a valuable reference for now and the future. NOMSV has been making efforts to speak to the press about these issues, and in addition we have tried to contact responsible people to offer healing retreats to victims of the priests. So far, nothing definite has come of these latter efforts, though I am still hopeful.

Thank you for the information. It's noted & logged. Looks like most of these priest-assholes got their ya ya's beginning several decades ago. Our trust in Authority went bye bye during the 60s & 70s. For good reason. I think the priests' actions reflect that era.
If it feels good,do it. Vice is nice but incest is best,right? Tune in,turn on,drop out. There's lots more going on here than meets the eye. It's about societal structure,belief systems. It says a lot that we need rules to make us do good,not evil. It begs the question what we'd do if there were no laws against adult/child sex. Is civility only an illusion? Have we lost the ability to conceptualize in an independant mannor? Are we manipulated now thru means we cannot possible understand? Who creates our reality and why,to what end?
