"Okay, so let's get to the mail, John Carpenter's and Carlos, California regarding the General Milley incident. Why is everybody quiet on Speaker Pelosi's request to the general to remove The nuclear code from President Trump in the days following January six. Please tell me I'm wrong, but doesn't Pelosi's actions represent an indictment or a coup? Uh, We don't know exactly what was said. That's the problem with this. So I do believe Pelosi. Did speak with Millie and probably Most likely Disparaged Trump because that's what she always does. But I'm not sure about specifics. So before I go Accusing anybody. I'm not like Peggy Noonan. Try to get the facts. Paul Miller's Cicero, Indiana building. Think The story about Millie is an intentional diversion so they won't bear down on Afghanistan and Biden see this is this conspiracy stuff, Paul. I know the media on the Internet is all over that. It doesn't exist. So what? Millie did it, Millie did. Woodward wanted to sell his book He threw whatever you had in, based on anonymous sources, Millie is denial is weak.

Paul Stoneburner Burke, Virginia If Congress passes a multiyear budget, and the money's have not yet been spent, can a subsequent Congress rescind the budget? No. A subsequent Congress can rescind laws and the president can rescind executive orders. But once a budget is passed, then it's passed. And the money's remain with the federal government. Now they can be re allocated. That's that's what Congress does. Congressman charged the money in the spending. Mary Amanda Nino, UH, eastern Pennsylvania bill, it should be no surprise that Pope Francis will not condemn President Biden for his pro abortion stance. This, along with the pope's climate change. Advocacy, is shown that even the Vatican is not immune. From politics. The Vatican's never been immune politics factor. Vatican ran Europe for hundreds of years, It was politics. But Pope Francis.

"That's great though. We need that always done for better or worse side. I do have a good friend to your locally that whenever we talk about things of church she gets so mad and so passionate and so fired up and she's like. I guess the church needs both of us and i like i like that. I don't and anyone who reads My book will realize that. I don't pretend our problems aren't there. I just wanna be proactive about our problems. And i think jesus can solve them better than i can Yeah yeah yeah fastening. How do you think or have you come to think. Oh i was gonna ask you how you think. Jesus thinks about denominations and that's probably not fair question. But how how do you think about them today. And how it sounds like. That's changed quite a quite a bit and you found some maybe some treasurer in other traditions. That you wouldn't know early on in the journey. When i first learned about the great schism schism as you say that word Right around two thousand sim eighty. When the catholic church and the orthodox church lit. I had in my mind. I think naively that everything happy and everybody got along and there are no issues and then they split over something silly and the churches in splitting ever since and that's quite true.
"catholic church" Discussed on POLITICO's Nerdcast
"Of church and state and that was a huge moment for him and his campaign and overcoming a lot of anti-catholic sentiment. You ass. I believe in an america that is officially the catholic protestant jewish where no public official either request or accept instructions on public policy from the pope the national council of cartoons or any other ecclesiastical sauce i think since then it no longer matters as much to be like an ethnic catholic. I'm not trying to diminish like that identity at all. But i mean there's not the same prejudice or bias around that as there once was so joe biden ever had to give that speech for example but interestingly john kerry kind of did in his own way but by then john kerry who ran in two thousand four like had to navigate the issue but by then it was already becoming about abortion and you had some bishops who were threatening to withhold communion from him. I think they called it the wafer wars that they never went like act like john kerry to my knowledge has never been denied comedian. In the same way that joe biden has a catholic priest did not give you communion. He said it was because of your position on abortion. Were you offended by that at least once a catholic church in south carolina. It's a private matter. I'm not gonna talk about that but So only time it's ever happened and we didn't talk about it. He went to the press about it. And it's not a position that i've found anywhere else including from the holy father. Who gives me communion. He never john kerry never had the bishops of proposing to write a document targeting him. Which is what's happening right now over this issue so you in a way. Everything's changed. But i just think that also were talking around the demographic shifts in the catholic church and you know towards the eight hundred ninety s e c and huge growth in the number of white catholics. Who were basically looking more and more like just conservative. Voters like in in america. And so that helped make abortion the preeminent issue in the catholic church and all of those things contributed to this very particular environment. In which joe biden now is at the very center so it's just different from kennedy but it's a continuation of what started there but it strikes me that what would you would you lay out. Is the main political problem for catholic. In national politics now is not being catholic enough this when it comes to some of the things like abortion whereas kennedy literally had to say he would not follow directions from the pope because there was so little understanding about catholicism. An american back then that it was taken as a article of faith a unintended. The pope could tell the president what to do which i think. Now people would think of that as absurd. Were you raised catholic. I feel elizabeth. Yeah okay so you know this irish catholic irish italian catholic. Yeah yeah and my grandparents and my grandparents like a lot of people that generation warship jfk. They were the generation that had like a picture of jfk on the wall and their little apartments in new york and i think biden had similar childhood. Yeah oh this is what i wanted to ask you about that. I mean not to put biden on the couch too much but he is a pretty interesting sites. Psychologically he's he's the interest and figure you excavated this quote that i thought was really good and worth keeping handy about having a chip on his shoulder having a chip on his shoulder. One to me one of the defining characteristics of biden. Oh my god. Yes in all things right and i often think that intellectually. He's going to cheat on his soldier. You know class wise It so much part of his identity. What's the chip on a shoulder when it comes to religion and the issues that you writing about the chip has different dimensions to it. And they are all intertwined with the question of faith because it is a class thing we basically spent the entire campaign hearing him. Give a rip about how he would be only president to not have gone to an ivy league schools since they would be since reagan. I think. Yeah thank you. But he's repeated that. I think he actually. It wasn't just a campaigning. I think he's actually kind of alluded to it in his presidency to. What's fascinating about. His upbringing is that his father was actually very well to do businessman for you know the majority of his early marriage certainly and for time when joe biden was very young and that sort of fell apart and he had to sort of start over as a used car salesman in the family moved to delaware and that was a new start they moved from scranton delaware. And that's an amazing story biden should tell that story on the campaign trail once in awhile. He doesn't tell it quite like that though. Meaning you know. He doesn't talk about the he basically says i'm from the family of a used car salesman from scranton pennsylvania and that's true by the way like it's not like he was raised with.

Why is there no mention of that in the news. Yes exactly ask yourself why. India success against the delta variant with ivermectin is such a closely guarded secret by the nih and cdc. Second ask yourself. Why no major media outlets reported this fact but instead try to confuse you with false information by saying the deaths in india are ten times greater than official reports perhaps.

Exorcism: When Modern Science and Psychology Is Not Enough
"But you must understand that your unfortunately something of a rarity not just in the roman catholic church but in christendom. There are many people who don't go near the stuff they will send you to a psychiatrist as though and by the way. Most psychiatrists unlike you. They don't have this category they. They don't say well. We tried this this this. It looks like it's they don't even have that category so there are people dealing with. Maybe it's diagnosis schizophrenia. This is that there is a demonic element and they don't even know who might be able to help them with that. Well some things. Are i think in some circles. Darden to chase pope francis actually has the vatican's ask every diocese in the world to have an exorcist. Now they don't i think in the us we probably have maybe one hundred some odd exorcists so maybe half the diocese had them but so there is this growing awareness. But right and there's a lot of people say well we've got me on this because modern psychology and science can can explain everything but the reality is some things that happened or not says them. You can't explain. Naturally i mean. Look i have been in the room within I've been right next to people who have been manifesting demons and when you see it. It's very hard to believe that the person's making it up or they're just generally crazy. It really does seem like wh what we're talking
Where Mormon Doctrine and Biblical Doctrine Diverge
"You're saying that there are real sticking points. Unavoidable problems between what the mormon faith teaches unequivocally. And what the bible says unequivocally so this is not just you know point of view or or something like that because i think that many people could make the case that what the roman catholic church teaches is is right. That people can twist things in other words. You can have a conversation there about. Do they believe this. Exactly this exactly. But you're saying that the lines are really bright and bold that separate mormon doctrine from biblical doctrine. In this case. So i guess my question is do you When you're talking about that you say that the lds church teaches that we can become like god. How is that different from somebody saying that. Look the scripture says that were made in his image and we will be made to be like him through the process of sanctification. And that kind of thing. I think that the eastern orthodox call it. Theo cysts in other words. That's kind of the point is that we're supposed to be more and more like him. So that's not really a problem. Where does it become a problem. Yeah so so as you mentioned biblically through the process of vacation and the holy spirit dwelling in us. We are conformed to the image of christ. We've been having airship with christ right in the kingdom of heaven but that's not what mormonism teaches. They actually teach not that we become like god but that we ourselves become gods and so eventually once. You've progressed to this. Point of god hood you then have the power authority to create your own worlds to populate those world with your spiritual and go through the same process that we are then in on this earth and so it is a complete perversion of the idea that we somehow can attain that which god now has and so And just the exclusivity of the claim that the church is the only institutional organization that has the correct power authority from god right there several organizations in the world that claim that authority in the mormon church claims that they are the actual church that jesus instituted during his earthly ministry and only with the authority and the proper ordinances contained within that organization can an individual live eternally in the presence of

And it's this incredibly powerful story about mothers and daughters and also an interesting and really heartbreaking. Look at what was happening in ireland at the time that really went on for about one hundred years where the catholic church ran the.

And it's an incredibly heartbreaking walk at that legacy of secrecy.

I think the camera with three million said they were not able to raise them the twenty twenty five million that they they agreed to and so the court said okay. Fine left okay.

Catholics believe in trans injury. Which is the idea. That the communion bread the community wind become the body and blood of jesus christ in recognition of the sacrifice. He made in catholic tradition. There's this debate about approaching communion if you're not in a state of grace but then we have pope francis saying that in some senses receiving. The eucharist is about receiving that greece. Heidi how do you think that this. Because you said it's not really about communion but it clearly is a little bit. How does this figure into the debate. About what communion is foreign. Who comedian is for. I guess what i would say is that it can be both both something that is for centers and in which we receive grace but at the same time the church does have some appropriate role in deciding how the sacraments are celebrated in who celebrates them and who partake of them. The eucharist is the source and summit of the christian life according to the catechism. Certainly it's very important. And visible way that catholics practice their faith so i believe that the bishops have a right duty of course to teach about the eucharist and to teach about what the church says about the dignity of human life and i would like to see our bishops teach and persuade but i don't think an emphasis on the punish side of how to get people to do what you want them to do is very effective and i say this both as a former teacher and as a parent my friend john carr who at georgetown now formerly with the bishop's conference always says we need to make abortion unthinkable before we make it illegal and i don't think the bishops are doing a very good job of persuading people about that. Ross this seems to make abortion the litmus test for whether or not the american catholic church or followers of the american catholic church will support a particular politician. What gets me about. This is that this is a very public and performance of action. Because if you're a priest you have absolutely no idea in general what most of the people who are receiving communion have done that day they could have committed any number of mortal or venial sins. They could have been divorced. They could have had extramarital sex and the reason why catholic politicians who are supportive of abortion rights come in for particular opprobrium is because we know where their positions are because they're public figures. Why abortion is the thing to make the stance on why not the death penalty or getting divorced or any number of factors because not saying that abortion abortions. Not an incredibly important issue to catholics. Who do believe that. It is a grave sin but there are lots of other grave sins on the abortion. Point is just that abortion is murder is worse than other sentence. Right i don. I don't think it's i think it's not actually particularly complex. The reason that people bring up the death penalty is that that's the closest you can get to parallel case where it is actually a matter of life and death where a human being is being killed. Now you can argue various reasons why we shouldn't think of abortion as murder and you had my colleague michelle goldberg and i on on the show and we you know we. We've had that argument but within the context of catholic teaching. That's the logic. Now i think having a preeminent issue like this does create a problem for the church where the other political parties seems to sort of accumulate a long list of issues that taken on their own or all less significant than abortion but in the case of certain aspects of the trump presidency. Do seem to add up to take the case of the death penalty abortion and the death penalty even so are still different because the death penalty is the execution of a person who's been found guilty of a serious crime in some cases. That person may actually be innocent. But that's what the state is attempting to do their to execute guilty. Which is again different from. What happens in abortion. No one is arguing that the unborn human being is guilty of a capital crime. My view is that the public nature. The performing nature is sort of the point. Right that yeah. In most cases nobody knows what kinds of sins were committing. Thank god in secret that we may or may not have confessed before we go up to take communion but politicians by virtue of being politicians by choosing the life. They've chosen they're responsible directly for war and peace and all times of things. You know where you can trace direct consequences from their policies and so the church does have a different relationship to them. Necessarily i mean. I guess i push heidi a little bit. I would say that. I wouldn't agree with it but i don't think it would be crazy for the church in the case of a death penalty supporting catholic politician to have a conversation about withholding communion given how that teaching has developed. I respect that. Heidi doesn't think that's appropriate. But i guess i'd ask. Is there anything where it would be appropriate. Yeah i mean. I can't think of a specific example but i do recognize that. That is the purview. And the responsibility of church leaders. I just think in this situation. It pretty clearly is not and with william bar. I pray for his conversion on that issue. And i think he's less likely to convert on that issue. If he's not receiving communion. I can speak personally about the importance of receiving the eucharist in my own life. And how i think it's been transformative. So the idea of denying that to someone seems counterproductive. I guess i would push back a little bit on you about the simplicity of abortion being murder. It's certainly is the taking of a life. I don't want to contradict church teaching here but it can be complicated. It's the reason why. Most i think pro-lifers do not call for the imprisonment or execution. I guess of a woman who has an abortion because they don't see it as simply murder in that way and i also think that while politicians need to be responsible for the positions that they personally hold or that they support either from their party or actions of their own as politicians. I do also think there's a little bit more nuance here in this situation. With biden at the same time it is currently the law of the land here and he has moved towards being more accepting of his. Party's you know liberalism or whatever you call it on abortion but he has never taken back the fact that he says he has personally opposed to it and i think that when we start thinking that a politician who's member of a party or an administration or a country that has anything that's against the catholic church. Then we're all kind of in trouble. Not just the republicans and their as you said growing number of things that they oppose that. Just don't happen to be abortion but many of us and we don't want the communion line to be.
Pope Will Meet With Indigenous Leaders About Canada's Residential Schools

"Another grim discovery in british columbia the remains of one hundred and eighty two bodies near a former indian residential school. As dan carpenter reports the find was made using ground penetrating radar. The lower kootenai band says the remains were found in unmarked graves near the site of the former saint.

The ben's leaders met with survivors of the school in the community before making the announcement and louis added his voice to the growing calls for the catholic church to be held accountable for running the schools.

"catholic church" Discussed on Behind the Bastards
"So there is some sort of wildly crazy mental gymnastics that you have to do to like be like an incredibly rich enclosed city and incredibly rich like fabrics and all this fucking shit on your whole thing is to be like humble on whatever but oh yeah to every second of your day as yet the mental gymnastics you must do a quote unquote representative of god to make that make sense is i'm like ra onward simone fucking byles. I'm a humble servant of the lord who happens to live in his own independent nations with billions of dollars in golden riches buried secretly beneath it guarded by swiss mercenaries. What is the problem with that. How does that. How does that not say humble servant of god to you for real. You listen to swiss mercenaries. It's the swiss mercenaries isn't new truly live in some shit. That sounds like a fairytale. no four. You're like is this something. I'm perpetuating that is precisely against thought. I pretend god is. Maybe i should take a knee and fucking renounce all this bullshit away now okay. We'll i'll just riding around in my weird bulletproof pope mobile a fun thing to do with the high up leadership of the catholic church. I'm not saying this about necessarily every single precinct because there are definitely parishes and stuff where there weren't molestation and as we've talked about nervous in the school the americas that were heroic catholic priests and nuns who fought against these right wing death squads and acts of genocide in places like guatemala. And i don't mean like. I'm not saying. Every single catholic church official is complicit in this but everyone at the highest level leadership of the church absolutely as everyone who is running the vatican. Every pope knows about this shit and is complicit in covering up in every year we get more evidence of that every high level catholic official is a part of not just this but the mass child-molestation every single one of them. And if you start to come up with defenses for them replace the word catholic church with nazi germany. And see if those defenses sound like things that defenders of earmarked say when. They're trying to claim that there were large chunks of the nazis who weren't complicit in the genocide. It's the same shell so they ran the catholic church they were part of it and also catholics were part of a complete actual holocaust and they weren't genocide that is part of world news fairness though slice. It you have to there. You have to separate the church in rome from the catholic church large parts of the church in germany. Who a big part of the resistance to hitler and in fact the three groups that reinhardt heidrick the architect of the holocaust targeted in germany were activists clerics which were catholic priests that were anti-nazi the jews obviously and freemasons so. I don't want to like again outside. Germany yeah but yes in the catholic. The pope at that point. There's a bunch of fucked up shit you can say yes i just. I never want to be the catholic. The part of the problem when you're trying to condemn the catholic church is inevitably people will be like well. What about this heroic priest who gave his life protecting. It's like yes. i'm not saying. He helped cover up mass child rape. I'm talking about the pope's. I'm talking about the bishops. I'm talking about the people. In charge of the organization the way conducted yes and is equivalent to a lot of other organizations. We're not we. Don't say every israeli person every no or whatever when we talk about. Us crimes. I'm not saying that your uncle who was drafted at age eighteen is responsible for the deployment of agent orange on the jungles of vietnam in a lotta ways. He's a victim too. But like yeah. It's it's the organization everyone running. The organization of the catholic church is complicit in this and that's cool and good sophia. it's not thank. It's india radically devastating. And i'm glad i started drinking. Yeah it's a good time to be drinking twenty twenty one just the whole year so a big part of the reason why the horrors of this system are now widely known has to do with a single woman from the village of tom and not to white not to wash out those brave journalists. Who did the important work of documenting this but that kind of covered up in the eighties. Twelve is again where that child. Mass grave was uncovered in. This woman's name is kath catherine corless. She grew up hearing the whispered stories about that mass grave which had been so efficiently hushed up and covered up by the church. She started to investigate in the early 'oughts and i'm going to quote from the journal dot i. e. here cordless works in her family farm. She didn't have an academic institution behind her instead. She worked on it in her spare time on a rainy day. I'd really get down to it and go to work in the library. She said she initially tried to contact the bon secours sisters at their core headquarters and was told that they no longer had files or information about the home. She tried the western health board. Who told her. There was no information available when she tried to access information from galloway county council. She says she was told that she wasn't allowed because she didn't have a university degree. That's exactly what i was told. I couldn't look at the records but the council would let her look at the information about the housing estate which had been built over the ruins of the old home and from this from this information about the housing estate. She was able to piece together data about the original site. She eventually hit upon the idea of going to the registry office in galway to get death certificates for every child who had perished at the home. Her contact at the office called her a week later and said do you really want all these death certificates. Because you're going to be charged for each of them and there's a fuck load of them. Corless was charged for euros for each death certificates. She requested between two thousand eleven when she started requesting them and two thousand thirteen. She came up. With seven hundred and ninety-six deaths they ranged from newborns to nine year old children. The death certificates gave causes ranging from malnutrition neglect. Measles burkey losses in pneumonia. The number of deaths and the time the home is operational. Mean that one child died there every fifteen days by overlaying map of the site as it looks today with plans for the old building. She realized the mass grave discovered in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy five had been built in the old location of the homes sewage tank. So when they didn't polish the building they step all the corpses in the sewage tank. That's good very respectful. Life matters catholic church famed advocates of the sanctity.

"People find our show. The first step to ending abuse in the church is to not be silent about it. So please consider sharing this podcast with your friends, family co workers or prisoners again thank you so much for listening. This episode contains a description of sexual abuse listener discretion is advised. In Nineteen ninety-two, nearly five hundred survivors clergy sex abuse gathered in Chicago from around the world. Following decades of sexual abuse by priests, it was the first gathering of its kind. The name of the historic conference was breaking the silence. The silencing of Catholic sex abuse victims has come up often in my interviews for this podcast. It's yet another stain on the Church's handling the sex abuse crisis. And it's no surprise that breaking the silence was the chosen theme of the first large-scale gathering of survivors. Silencing took place in many different ways. If they were very young children, you could see how the silencing by take place in the context of families or communities.

One of his research areas is clergy sex abuse in the Catholic Church from the perspective of survivors I've heard the story for many survivors of. Saying that they went to speak to a teaching sister in their school and the sister told to be quiet not to talk like that about father. Or they tried to tell other priests and other priests just said, no be quiet. In parents, relatives there was a real resistance to hearing these stories and sometimes they silence themselves because they knew that they weren't GonNa get anywhere where they were afraid to speak.

Grand? Jury? report. and. It led to questions about the hierarchy of the Catholic Church the head never been asked before. The events of that year did force progress and reform ever so slowly. But as Pope Francis has argued. This was never just a problem about processes and rules that can be fixed with legislation. It goes much deeper. It touches on the failure of bishops to act like shepherds. Respond to crimes against children like fathers. Pope Francis recognize this fundamental failure in his letter to the people of God. He wrote. With shame and repentance. We acknowledge as an ecclesial community that we were not where we should been. That we did not act in a timely manner.

Pope Francis walked out onto the balcony addressed a massive crowd in Saint Peter's Square and told the boy scouts that if they quote come for him they best not miss. Take a listen for where the Catholic Church God damn it. We already have hundreds of thousands of abused parishioners children and nuns on the books.

"catholic church" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"Our society was dumber about this type of thing thirty and forty years ago we talk about the Catholic Church we talk about so many institutions that here individuals that it just garden variety criminals we were way too lenient are the people who committed sexual crimes against children as a rule that I society be at an institution the Boy Scouts are facing this problem as well and when somebody even when they were caught by the authorities you see here in Illinois multiple convictions between eighty to one ninety nine a generally just got a year or two just the refusal to learn that slides like this guy need to be locked up for decades because sexual perversion toward children is a crime that is almost impossible apparently given the overwhelming number of repeaters to stop doing back to the release so we've got up tonight and they point out that he know what identity but passes sexual registry until ninety nine so there was no such thing as an adjudicated sexual predator until they passed the law until that point I would pick out a little bit but I would say also point out that many other states were slow to react to this just as many of us in society were slow to react and many institutions that obviously it now in retrospect deeply regret it but it was a societal wide problem in which we were simply in denial about the number of perverts that were out there back to the release you able to receive in nineteen ninety six and lived there until two thousand three he then lived in Walker shop or three to all eight and that'll kind of walked away to the present through the investigation it was determined that you in sexually assaulted six non relative children in Waukesha it does but these crimes came to light in January of twenty twenty last month would one victim came forward and reported the prior crimes the police Ewing was arrested and charged at January twenty fourth Waukesha county with four counts of repeated sexual assault of a child and one count of sexual assault of a child under sixteen his victims are non relative children raging free ranging in age from infant to teen age at are both male and female let me interject again this is very unusual I didn't say nonexistent most of these people and we've covered so many of these stories over the years have an animal or a pattern there into a certain type teenage boys teenage girls preteen boys preteen girls maybe a relative like their own child this guy was a broad base the fender everything from an infant two teenagers again I'm not saying it doesn't happen I'm saying that this is not the norm so you he's a real secco ad we also know that there's a pattern prior to these charges that they brought here in Wisconsin now in January of twenty twenty all these charges dating back in a little eighty to eighty five eighty six nineteen ninety three all those cases in Illinois they again all ran the gamut in terms of the type of offense and the type of victim back to the release from the Waukesha police you would would be friend the family and offered to watch the children or take the children to the park well the parents were Holman rad errands or were at work you and has a small fishing boat and camping gear and possibly use those to spend time alone with the children the Waukesha police department is asking for the communities help in locating potential additional victims of sexual assault if you recognize Ewing and all over the media they got photos of him and the police released a compilation of photos of him throughout the years you can go back and take a look at yeah if you recognize Ewing it up had knowledge that he had unsupervised access to children in Wisconsin from nineteen ninety six to the present contact detective Shelley feature of the Waukesha police department and then there's the number listed on that release and that number is widely available I will read if you're on the air but it's available in a number of places so I think there's a fear that this is like master and wish I'd probably not as many as here but that there may be multiple cases where do you think about it you know go back say it's twenty three years to go ahead the dirty old man you hear messed around with your kid you decide that it's not in the best interest to be the your kid are you to tell the authorities to think it's isolated it somebody came forward and I don't know I it may perhaps the information is out there I don't know what the victim came forward now for that resulted in this but it led to this investigation that nailed all of these things down with this guy Ewing there's so much that I can say about this that I don't have time to do it because I want to move on but one of the tragedies of this is it's making it very difficult for adults who want to do things like mentor usage boy scout leaders or just say a religious leader who what's the care for children talk to the kids and work with them or for that matter just people who like kids maybe you're the guy that actually is like you know you you are for sure but it's some key I think of like leave it to beaver from back in the fifties beaver would go hang around with the fire chief doesn't sit down that there's some kids are just like to hang out and there are people nice people and there's still a lot of nice people like to work with kids that court youth sports teach kids how to play chess each of an instrument all that sort of thing you just all get suspicious of all of it because the perverts increase like this right I mean you had a kid if you had somebody that was going to be a music instructor when your daughters are yeah you're probably would think nothing of it that I bet you think something of it now the other point that I want to make wow I said we were clearly naive as a society to this problem back in the sixties seventies eighties and even into the nineties we don't have any excuse now and we have got to stop this nonsense a one year sentence probation two year sentence even when you lock these people up for twenty years if they're thirty would you lock them up there with the fifty I have lost patience with the state legislature in Wisconsin both Republicans and Democrats in doing anything about the crime issue but of all the crimes we have where I believe we have been to Lee get sexual crimes against children is number one in the last look at the number of teachers that we've convicted recently they got one year of probation or two years maybe or you know a year and a half with work release and so on learning nothing from any of these cases let me move up we had in Milwaukee last night within an hour and a half of one another two people killed buy automobiles in both drivers were according to the police intoxicated and they happened very close to one another totally unrelated to what other the circumstances were completely different other dad in both cases it was the near west side of Milwaukee in both cases the drivers are charged with W. why and in both cases it was a pedestrian even the walks of life of the two victims could not be more different the brand new dean of our cat business school in fact he's been the subject of numerous news stories just the last few weeks because you just name to the job Joe Daniels I don't believe I've met him and I always cautious about this because maybe I did I don't remember it but I have heard a number of people speak highly of him that he's one of those people that buy a cat that had the support of just about everybody and everybody liked but they thought it was a great choice to be the deal so I trust in the street and have them Scott's six US six o'clock or so in the evening actually related that around eight so it was dark he apparently was crossing in the crosswalk when there was a green and Wisconsin but the driver was driving at a high rate of speed and was apparently intoxicated according to the authorities so I don't know if he was

"They're sending if they believe the promises offices of God they're sending That's how distorted the Catholic religion really is and most of the Catholics. I have met and come across and I haven't met all of them but the ones I have met. They don't seem to be too versed on their own doctrine. It's almost like they're more similar to myself. When I was a Catholic to where I just kind of had enough religion in me to satisfy on my own conscience to think that I was on my way to heaven never really cared about studying any kind of Catholic book other than in the books I studied when I went through communion and confession and did all the the rituals that I did and I've actually been street witnessing hang on a pretty regular basis for about the past ten years? I've talked to a lot of Catholics in that time. I have only one time. Have I run into to Catholics. Who actually knew their own doctrine? I was out open. Air Preaching oceanside in a group of young people. They were in their twenties. They came around and they were asking questions and come to find out. This is a group from from a Catholic seminary and and they were very interested in Gospel presentation because there is it was like. Oh here's a protestant. Let's ask them some questions and so I talked to them for it. It was a couple of hours and and you know it was great conversation. But this is the only time I've ever actually run into Catholics. Who Know Oh their stuff you know why is that? Why is it that it just seems like most most Catholics? They don't know all the doctrine Turin point. The main doctrinal points of their own church. They don't they can't explain why they have a pope right now. Who has said things like well if if this this little kids? Dad is an atheist. As long as he's a good person he could probably go to heaven to that goes totally against not only the Bible but Catholic teaching you you know and so I know I know. It's kind of a big big convoluted question but basically why is it. That most of the of the Catholics. I run into you. You just don't know a whole lot about their own catholicism or you're talking about the majority of Roman Catholics but you do have to extremes you've got the twice a year Catholics in even more extreme than that you have. Those are Catholic by name only and they don't go to church but if you ever say anything that might be exposing the air then they come to the defense at the church they go to anymore. So you've got those on one extreme then you've got the other extreme you've got former Protestants. Now that are becoming the teaching authority authority of the Catholic. Yes I've heard. And they're converted to Catholicism. They know their scriptures and so they're teaching their followers how to defend against Evangelical Alex's that come witnessing but in the middle of those two extremes are the ones that you talk about. I don't mean to say this derogatorily but most Catholics exchequer brain at the door. They go through the rituals during the mass. They leave early then. They put God on the shelf. And they don't think about him until the next week when they're mandated to come back to the sacrifice of the mass under the penalty of mortal sin. Catholicism is very empty religion there is no hope in the Catholic church they have conditional life. There's no promise of eternal live given by the Catholic Church and so most Catholics are just nominal Catholics. You know they're proud the be a Catholic because they're told it's the one true church and just stick with us and we'll get you into heaven albeit through a detour and purgatory but yeah that's the. That's the mindset answer most Catholics there disinterested with anything pretending the spiritual truth now once. I left the Catholic Church and the reason I left was basically because I started reading the Bible and started understanding. What what it said and saw just a lot of differences between the Bible that the Catholic Church claims is there a and there was so many things in it there were totally against what they do and what they believe and so eventually left the Catholic Church but I would still go back once in a while for maybe a family Christmas service type of thing or some kind of a family event? I finally stopped going to those those kinds of things because I just couldn't stomach. What was going on in the altar when they would do their communion service when they will do their you know pre presenting the host right and so even though I didn't know much doctrine at all I didn't know a whole lot of Bible at this point this was early on? It's still just absolutely disgusted. Me that In my eyes it seemed what they were doing is they. Were bringing being back. Jesus in order to do some ritual with him and then they were letting him aside and doing it again the next day and it was like as if this guy the front body had the power to bring Jesus back on will and I'm thinking this is Jesus. He's going to judge this guy he's going to judge the living and the dead. He's he's he's he's a king he's not some thing that you can just make and do a little ritual. So what are the main issues with. What's going on up there at the Alter Trans substantiation I believe is the term? Could you explain that to explain that to me why I got so mad about this thing. I was seeing up their father John. O'Brien in his book. Faith of millions explains what happens at the sacrifice of the mass from that from the Catholic point of view. It's got the imprimature the Catholic Church. So this official Catholic pitching buddy. He writes it. When the priest speaks the words of consecration he pulls Christ down from His throne in heaven? and Jesus the UM flip it and all powerful God bows had and humble obedience to the priests command goes on to say this as a power greater than that of saints and Angels this is. This is an official official cap. TEACHING CAPRICE SPEAKS AND LOW Christ. Eternal Independent God bows is head and humble obedience to the priests command. This is Roman Catholocism. A Central Priest has the power to call Jesus down from heaven to continue on an altar. What he finished on the Cross and If Catholics only knew this my wife was a Catholic also but she never believed that she was eating the physical body and blood of Christ. Because that's that's what they teach us. That was a very devout Catholic. I believed it. I'm leaving. I was consuming consuming. Jesus and boy when God over my eyes so repulsive to think that that's what the Catholic Church teaches and practices. And it's the Very Nature Syrup deception. It's indoctrination so powerful that Catholics just believe in. Don't ask questions. So how does that work so in in the mind of the priests or anyone. WHO's believing that that teaching from what I understand? Trans substantiation term where when a Catholic is eating being their communion wafer in some way they're actually eating the physical body of Christ like how like how uh-huh what what is it. They believe the other subsidies remains the same but the inner substances changed into the Physical Body and blood of Christ through the quote unquote miracle of Trans France substantiation. But again it's It's not a miracle it's a hoax sits counterfeit Christ Catholics. Who worshiped the Eucharist or committing the most serious area Senate by dollar tree because we know that it's a false? Christ Jesus said I must remain in heaven until my enemies have been made my footstool elax chapter three. So he's still in heaven. Yeah and then Hebrews nine twenty eight says he will return again not an association with sin. He will turn a second back in time and so we know from scripture that the priest doesn't have the power to call Jesus down he's remaining heaven he will return the second time the Bible well says when where and how when after the tribulation where to the Mount of Olives how the same way he left and so this is a false Christ its idolatry great and conflicts. Need to know this tell you when I was talking to those seminary students on the pier. We were having a great conversation I I was doing doing doing my best using scripture to answer all their questions. How does the person get to heaven? WH WH who. Who are the saints and all these different things but the thing that came up that caused me just to need to bow out of the conversation was because the the issue of the Eucharist came up and I actually started getting so upset in the conversation it was? It was first and only time I've ever been witnessing to someone where I just had the lead the conversation because I was getting extremely angry. Yes you know and and it was it was it was horrible and it just it just that experience. Just kind of solidified. What I what I felt in my in my younger days when I left the church? It's such a horrible viola. I of blasphemous really teaching. And like you said most Catholics. Don't even think about the. I never thought about that while I was in the church once I came out and I realize is what was what was going on. It was just such a revelation. Okay so you've given us three things to kind of camp out on or or at least make sure we we bring this up with with Catholics. What are some good questions that you ask Catholics? When you're getting into conversations with the acronym fire because it's really a good way to engage people? F- stands for friendship Family upbringing you ask questions about how they were growing growing up and then I is interest. What common interests do you have? are would be Your religious upbringing. Where'd you go to Church What what kind of denomination nomination or you talk about their religious background and after you've asked those questions F I r then the is evangelize? Now you have the answers that you I need. You can know which direction ago but some of the questions. How does your church teach that they have any hope of going to heaven? It's amazing what Catholics respond bond. Well I don't know that churches ever taught us that you would think that's what you church for you but unfortunately a lot of Protestant churches. I don't think that's very true. so Are you ready to meet your Creator. You know one day we will all stand before our creator. He will either be sent avenging evenging judge or a glorious savior and you have time on this earth to put your trust in him so that when you meet him he is your savior but if you reject actum then you will meet him as a sin evenging judge and you'll have to pay for the penalty of your own sends. So that's another great question Where do you go for truth? You know uh-huh and so often Catholics will say well I just look within you. Know I'm sure that Whatever I believe in my heart is true and they need to know that the heart is deceptively wicked and who can trust it and it goes directly against the Bible? Yeah sometimes they'll say their priests there. Pope Yeah just my experience. My experience in life But then and you have to share with them. There's only one infallible source. That will never mislead you never deceive you. And that's Christ. In his word he is the truth. So there's some good questions where do you hope to spend eternity. Hope it seven you can know for sure right here and now so that really is the issue. Is that a Catholic based on the teaching. They're receiving and everything they know about God. They've learned the church they can't know they can't know where they're going is. It's it's based on what they do rather than what crisis done And so if someone thinks they're going basically they would just be seen as proud sure. How could you possibly know that? Uh Uh F- that good. How do you show a person in a in a quick kind of way not that we have to be quick with everybody we talk to? How do you just get to the point of showing a Catholic that getting to heaven being right with God is not based on what they do to verses that have said so many Roman Catholics free would be a phasing two eight nine four by grace you have been saved through faith? It is not of yourselves..

It is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God not not of works so that no man they boast and you ask a Catholic. What does that mean to you? It's not of yourself. It's not of works. So so. Why are you trusting what you're doing? And then that of course leads to the question. Well how then can I be saved and then you point to Christ as the all sufficient savior now officials to eighty nine. It says we we are saved by by grace and yet within Catholicism one of the issues that comes up is just an understanding of that word grace thanks to a Catholic the word grace it can mean something different than it means to a Christian. Can you talk about does a paragraph twenty twenty seven of the catechism MHM says. Catholics must merit the grace's necessary for eternal life. So the question then is how do you merit the unmerited favor of God because because that's what Biblical grace's it's the unmerited favor it's given freely by God and so you have to define terms when you're witnessing the Catholics wchs that interesting in mormonism or something similar in that same verse. The Book Mormon I believe is where it says you are saved by grace through faith after all all you can do so. So they're hitting on that same issue then. The the false religions do not want to point people towards the grace of God and that really is the difference between the Bible and not just Catholicism but every other religion it seems like just the issue of grace versus works. You know another question. I like to ask anyone whether it be Catholic or Christian or anyone. That doesn't even know. God Yeah why did Jesus after die boy. It get your right to the core of the Gospel. I've as I I'll talk to people who say they go to a Christian church and they can't. They can't answer that question sometimes. Yeah that's a great with all stars with the wages of Senna's death and Jesus went to the Cross dissatisfied divine justice dying in the place of repenting centers is so that they will not have to face the punishment of God. Yeah now just WANNA ask a couple more questions here. Ju just these are things that come up when talking a to Catholics specifically the one thing that Catholics love to say. Is You know what you wouldn't even have the Bible. If it wasn't for my church. The Catholic Church gave gave you the Bible. How do you answer that? Well there's a lot of ways to answer that the number one. The cather church wasn't even in existence when the Old Testament was written in so so we have the Old Testament in spite of the Catholic Church so usually talking about the new test when they make that claim and so in the New Testament how we know from scripture got inspired forty different men over fifteen hundred year period on three different continents all from different walks of life they penned the inspired word of God. The Pappas those letters were passed around the different churches people recognize them as holy scripture even before a castle convene in to represent them as part of the cannon and so the Early Church knew that these were the inspired writings of the apostles and Many were willing to die. For the truth found in these sacred writings they scriptures and so they were first person eye witnesses to the life and Resurrection Direction of Christ. And so we know from The Early Church that people that understood the scriptures they knew they were inspired writings of God. We see from Second Timothy. I just happened to have the scripture open. All scripture is given by inspiration of God and profitable for doctrine for reproof for correction for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete thoroughly equipped for every good work. All scripture is given by an inspiration of God so this is God breathed he. He breathed the scriptures into the apostles who penned into the proper as and. That's how we know that scripture is from God I also tell Catholic is like set. We have the Bible in spite of your religion because it was your religion the place it on the list of forbidden books of the council trucks and another thing. I tell Catholic like since you think you gave us the Bible. Why don't you abide in it so true? You gave us the Bible but most Catholics. Don't read it. That's a great point by by the way the cannon was primarily to eliminate spurious books now when you say the cannon you mean the collection of the council because establish the cannon Okay was initially to eliminate spurious books. There's many books vying for cannon this city but the the councils he's got together and said no these are the inspired writings and these are not the picture people give that this church council had a meeting and they said okay. We're GONNA put this this book in the Bible. We're going to put that book in the Bible. But you're saying that wasn't at all. They already had their scriptures and they were getting rid of books that were originally not inspired. Okay another issue that comes up with Catholics. This is one of the big ones. Is the assertion that Peter was the first pope and ever since. That's him there have been a succession of popes and now the pope is here today. He is the authority from God and they base that on. Jesus called Peter the Rock and he said on this rock. I will build my church and so how do you address. Yes Matthew Sixteen eighteen and she's just asked the question who the men say that I am and Peter Said you're the Christ the son of the Living God and Jesus said this was revealed to you not by man but my father in heaven and Peter Upon this this rock I will build my church. What did Peter just do? You just made a profession of faith divinely inspired by God and Heaven As to who Christ is so anyone who who makes that same profession of faith revealed by God in heaven. WE'LL BE PART OF CHRIST church and we know that Jesus wasn't referring to Peter as the rock because because a few verses later Jesus talks about going to Jerusalem to die for his church before he builds it and pater said Lord may never be Jesus said get behind me Satan. You have in mind the things of men rather than the things of God. So this doesn't sound like Jesus would build his church on on a fallible man who just got Satan who just said Peter was the mouthpiece of the devil so clearly scripture tells us that the Rock was Christ Christ. Paul said that I granted and we say all the way through the psalms. God was the Rock even Peter referred to himself as a fellow elder. And then and one more thing that I have heard many Catholics. Say in you know we my point out the fact that the Bible says it were to not have any idols before us where to only pray to God and Catholics will pray to Mary. They do a lot of things in regards to marry and one of the things that Catholics will say. You know. They'll say we're not praying to Mary. We're not worshiping Mary where praying through Mary. It's like if I wanted something from you. I might ask your mom and she might put in a good word for me more. They might say something like you know. We're not actually worshiping her. We're just venerating her. What does that even mean? Like what are they doing there. Well well they are praying to Mary and they start off with Hail Mary. That's addressing the very petitioning her. The reason Catholics feel comfortable praying to Mary. He is because the Catholic Church has created another Mary. It's a perversion of the true Mary. Mary herself in the Bible. Yeah okay okay. Mary herself needed a savior. She called God her savior. Only centers need savior and so for Catholics to pray to Mary because she's she's been given a lot of divine attributes. She's said to be the media tricks of all grace. She said to be the advocate which is a title given to Christ. She's she's the Queen of Heaven crisis the King so everything that they've given the Christ they Passover and given attribute to marry they haven't called her omniscient this show or Omni present but she would have to be one point two billion Catholics or praying to her the only way she could hear all of them is if she were. I'm Nisshin Omnipresence presence. And she'd know she'd ups all languages and I challenged Catholics Show me one verse in the Bible where God fearing person praise to anyone. One other than God. Well you want to you. Want them to get on the Bible Challenge. Yeah find the verse and maybe well. They're in there. The rest of their faith will be challenged as they read the scriptures refute their religion. Well Mike you've given us a lot of good information here as we go to our Catholic friends the neighbors this can get very heated. It's not always easy to talk to someone especially when it's issues of religion things that are so close to people and in your talking about people's Traditions and their families and they've grown up with this stuff. What advice can you give us? As far as if I'm going to talk to someone about you Catholicism and wanting to get them to see the deception behind it what advice can you give us as far as not turning it into a big argument or a fight or you know. What are we as Christians need to do? As we're reaching out to Catholics with the truth of the Gospel well keep in mind unbelievers. Do Not WanNA WANNA be preached at so unaffected. Way is to ask them questions that we've talked about but we never can't argue anyone to heaven. All we're called to do is to deliver the a message from the pages of scripture to the person's ear. Yeah Gaza responsible. Take it from the year to the heart so we have been successful when we have shared the word of God the Gospel of Christ with them. And I encourage when you're witnessing the Catholics. If they have their own Bible sit down and open it point them to scriptures ask them what is God saying there and that way it eliminates any arguments because it's their interpretation. They can't say it's yours because you're not interpreting right there just recently you're right and you were saying and early. You'll even do that with their Catholic version viable because they're told not to trust anything from a Protestant church so you eliminate an obstacle by using their Bible all and they've got the same sixty six books that we do. They've added a few but we don't have to go there. Be Christ like speak. The truth in love have compassion and recognize. I said not. Everybody is going to humble themselves under the sovereign word of God. If you sense that they have not a teachable spirit. Maybe it's time to to leave a Gospel track and say let's get together again and talk some more whenever the discussion starts to get heated or ornamented. That's probably a time to to leave Gospel tracking and come back later. Yeah and we can't ever forget the power of prayer and this is a spiritual battle and unless the spirit of God is is involved in the word of God will not place any impact on the person. That's hearing it. We know that There's two things necessary confer conversion the word of God Moscow Osco forest and the spirit of God and a spring conviction. So that's why it's so important to pray that God would open their eyes. Open their hearts. As the Open Lydia's heart and then impre the word of God would be the imperishable see that finds fertile soil in their heart begins to grow and bring forth life. Amen Okay and so. If we're going to UH and that conversation and leave a Gospel track we are going to want to leave some of Mike Proclaiming the truth tracks. Mike if you could just tell us one more time what is. What is your a website where we could find these at? The website is proclaiming the Gospel Dot. Org We have six different gospel tracks all designed to reach people that are lost on religion. You can also call us at eight one..

It's amazing what Catholics respond bond. Well I don't know that churches ever taught us that you would think that's what you church for you but unfortunately a lot of Protestant churches. I don't think that's very true. so Are you ready to meet your Creator. You know one day we will all stand before our creator. He will either be sent avenging evenging judge or a glorious savior and you have time on this earth to put your trust in him so that when you meet him he is your savior but if you reject actum then you will meet him as a sin evenging judge and you'll have to pay for the penalty of your own sends. So that's another great question Where do you go for truth? You know uh-huh and so often Catholics will say well I just look within you. Know I'm sure that Whatever I believe in my heart is true and they need to know that the heart is deceptively wicked and who can trust it and it goes directly against the Bible? Yeah sometimes they'll say their priests there. Pope Yeah just my experience. My experience in life But then and you have to share with them. There's only one infallible source..
"catholic church" Discussed on This is Why
"Podcast. Download and subscribe online now. Awake. Cold, Luke in the eyes of one of the worst flies is the church has ever experienced. I'm Trico Harlan, the Washington Post thrown bureau chief, and I'm here that it can city for the first day of pope Francis landmark four day summit on clerical sexual abuse. This is the first time that any pontiff in the history of the Roman Catholic church has gathered the bishops from across the world, the leaders of the Piscopo conferences to discuss this topic and Francis is doing this under enormous pressure. You could say that this is perhaps the most high high pressure moment of his papacy. There's only one reason you're here. Only one to get them to stop doing this to Eur in Rome. Tell me the mood among survivors. We are hopeful that on Monday morning. We hear someone will have the courage to take decisive action if this summit ends and the pope doesn't implement full on zero tolerance. Then what I would say Francis. This is the moment. This is your time clean up your church. Get rid of the pedophile 's do it and do it now. Get you to speak into the mic. Okay. Is that good? Yes. Get it. Leona? Thanks for joining me back in studio again, thanks for having me. Nikki you've come back from Rome in just a moment ago. We were talking about what the media coverage was like there compared to what the media coverage in Canada is like what did you experience there? That's different from here. Well in Rome, it was shocking from the moment that we came out. We held the first press conference. I couldn't believe I've never been in a media scrum like that. And what we heard from the police was this the only time they've ever had that much press. There is when a pope is elected. So there was a lot of media focus on the papal summit and it being important. I was inundate basically didn't have time to get over jet lag. It was reporter after reporter after reporter asking for interviews. We were having to turn reporters down so to come back home. And then I'd posted on Facebook and Twitter and people had commented within my own circle. But others had no idea that this was even going on and. I saw. Yeah. There was one really good article. I felt Canadian Press article that was in the national post, but it was it was sort of relegated to a side. Call him that you could hardly see no photo or anything. And yet they were media spreads all over in Spain, Germany, Mexico Ecuador that we were being fed. So it was just interesting to come back and see why is there not the media interest here and have you come to any conclusions on that. Why you're not getting the same media coverage here in Canada that you you got overseas. I wonder if people just wish that this issue was finished. I wonder if it doesn't sell newspapers, I wonder if the people who who buy newspapers are more conservative and churchgoing people that don't want to hear about this. And yet they would be the ones that most need to hear that. This is still going on the issue hasn't been properly. Addressed you went to the Vatican in hopes that the issue would finally be addressed in a big way, and that summit was unprecedented. What was it like for you when you were representing Canada as the only Canadian who spoke to the organizing committee? I was pretty honored to be there. And yet I also felt that the night before the end echo organization that I'm part of ending clergy abuse. We had a meeting with the other people from echo that we're invited in the room, and I felt really bad because one of my colleagues my colleagues Evelyn Mazdas, an indigenous survivor, she wasn't invited into that room. And so I was stuck with this conflict of wanting to be there knowing that only twelve had been invited and appreciate the privilege of that. But also recognizing that that privilege wasn't afforded to my indigenous colleague, I didn't have control over who was invited. And so I went. In there. And we and I had a chat, and she got to say what she wanted to say. In the press conferences, she had men understood how the meeting was organized, but it just goes to the lack of planning and foresight that needed to be in that meeting..
"catholic church" Discussed on The Thinking Atheist
"Brash ball facing blasphemy. Question everything fronted extremely hard to imagine. Open your eyes. Quite all right. To be an atheist Costas. Growing group of people in the country has been measured as being those who have no belief who eighth is. You don't have to be apologetic quiet about opposition. You see religion on one hundred fronts. Losing the argument and start thinking. This is the thinking, atheist worldwide. And here we go again, another quote, unquote raking story about sexual abuse allegations from within the Catholic church and the cover up an article posted at CNN on the twenty-first of this month, said abuse allegations have been leveled at the Catholic church for decades. If this is news. First part of the article says for more than three decades. The Catholic church has been rocked by sex abuse scandal spanning the globe and for decades, the church has been accused of protecting itself rather than the victims of child sexual abuse. And it lists the major scandals and revelations, including the most recent one in Pennsylvania, grand jury released a report this month detailing, decades of alleged sexual abuses by priests and cover-ups by bishops. The report said internal documents from six Catholic diocese in Pennsylvania. Some held in a secret archive to which only the Bishop had a key showed that more than three hundred predator priests have been credibly, accused of sexually abusing more than one thousand child victims. Pope Francis issued an unusually blunt letter. This is c. n. n.'s words six days after the reports release, acknowledging quote with shame and repentance, the Catholic churches, failure to act writing quote. We showed no care for the little ones. We abandoned them the letter directly. The Pennsylvania report, which detail the experiences of at least one thousand survivors victims of sexual abuse, the abuse of power and of conscience at the hands of priests over a period of approximately seventy years. Looking ahead. The pontiff said the church was working on a zero tolerance policy on abuse and cover-ups friend, activist and attorney. Andrew Seidel is director of strategic response from the freedom from religion foundation, and he issued an article on the fifteenth of this month called report on p. abuse confirms it's time to quit the Catholic church. I'm going to read the whole article with Andrews permission, but before I do, I wanted to talk to Andrew Seidel himself, Andrew, it's good to talk to you how you doing man, I am well, it's always a pleasure to come. Join you on this wonderful show. How often do we find ourselves talking about the Catholic church? It just like this broken record. And here we are again right far too often. It is broken records. A great analogy, it's it's this terrible cycle of abuse assaults cover up and then repeat. So you've been going through. Through a bunch of the documents. I saw some lament on Twitter from you. That was like, you know, man, this is kind of a dark day because you've been going through in-depth a lot of the material about the cover up. So let's start there. Would you find as I read the entire Pennsylvania grand jury report, I really don't recommend that people do that. If you get it it it is. It's haunting. I genuinely I could not sleep the two nights after I read it, I was on the in the car on the way to work with Liz, you know, my better head who's also turning here, f, f, r f, and I had to pull over because I couldn't driving out as I was so broken up about what is happening. We are just we are sacrificing children on the altar of this Catholic fairytale just thousands and thousands of children are being raped, and it is being covered up and it happens again any. Again, and again, and the details in the report are harrowing. But the crazy thing about it is that as he said, it's nothing new. This is not the first of these reports and it's not. The less of these reports is just happens to be the one that is the most recent. And you know it's a little bit more. It's a little. It's got a little bit better documentation than some of the other reports because the Pennsylvania grand jury actually got access to some of the secret archives, and that is the phrase the church uses to describe their. They have a secret archive of documents that they use to track the predators in their own church and wear. They move them around and this isn't even the material from all the diocese..

"Ordination in the Catholic church, your student from real power and participation. The first rung of the ladder is I said earlier is get yourself are deigned if you can't get yourselfer day, essense, you'll live in in the in the wilderness. Your voice is not heard so that that that has to cease. This is the clerical ISM though that I believe Francis finally pointing to. He's been pointing to in for some years, but there's this is a powerful statements Ed. This clerical ISM has deceased and lay people have to commit to relieve ship and voice in this church, and indeed the the leadership of the church, bishops, et cetera, have to be held accountable. Let's go to Frank who's calling from Detroit, Michigan, you're on the air, Frank. Hi, Megan. How are you today? I'm well. What's your thought. Well, I was a Catholic seminary in about thirty years ago. In fact, I completed that some Inari, but I did decided not to get deigned. I saw low unholy behavior by the priests and the students. But the point I wanted to make is this on when and what I observed was when the young men entered the seminary, there rather humble and very devoted and dedicated. By the time they get ordained a change in their mentality develops, and they seem to have the idea that they're above the law. They can do or say anything and they become very far djing. At least this was the case thirty years ago. When I saw was the way they treated one nother as they became closer to this receiving these magical powers if they used to refer to them, it's horrible. Yeah. At that time, at least I don't know what it's like. Now back then the seminaries were just private clubs or kathak gays. That was pretty much what it was all about. The priests who ran the place, they knew what was going on and they just they, they promoted this sense that you will better than Frank if I may am your your first hand experiences? Absolutely. Fascinating. And I wanna turn what you're saying back to Thomas groom because I, I should note that that Tom screaming, you're, you're a former priest yourself you left in order to get married, so for the best of reasons. But so I mean, you you have x. disseminator inexperience, I mean, yes. What about the farmer caller said, I mean, there's a lot of truth in it.

There were genuinely I, I never met anybody who go into the seminary in my time, there was hundreds..
