An enquiry commissioned by the German Bishops and comducted by Universities of Giessen, Heidelberg and Mannheim finds more than 3600 minors were abused by clergy since 1947. And more than half of them were younger than 13yo when abused. Enquiry also says that real numbers are probably much higher. http://time.com/5394761/germany-catholic-church-sex-abuse-cases/
laPapessaGiovanna posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkLast Monday a Dominican monk was on air on Radio Maria (an important conservative Catholic radio) answering to people's questions. He said that natural disasters are caused by the original sin and consequently the last earthquakes that destroyed many towns in Central Italy can be linked to our state legalising civil partnerships for same sex couples. The RCC distanced itself from this position, denying it being the official teching of the Church and defining the statement as bordering to superstition. Radio Maria ended its collaboration with the priest and apologised to the population that lives in the afflicted areas (not to gay people though, those are filthy sinners ready for hellfire /sarcasm). Unfortunately the monk didn't take back his statements nor apologised but said that people in Vatican should reread the RCC Catechism 'cause he is right, of course. www.thelocal.it/20161105/italian-priest-blames-earthquakes-on-gay-unions https://www.google.it/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2016/nov/05/italian-priest-blames-earthquakes-on-gay-civil-unions%3F0p19G%3De&ved=0ahUKEwiE-96NlpLQAhUG1xQKHRPOC8MQFggiMAI&usg=AFQjCNHTiAtQb7PXfa5G2399X6jxV68Q2A&sig2=9DxH7wo6u2p1cBAyGxqZiA Leaving alone the offensive, insulting and utterly unacceptable beliefs that are the basis of discrimination towards gay people, from a theological point of view the whole reasoning makes no sense. The RCC believes in evolution sparked and guided by a superior intelligence, namely god, that governs through the laws of nature that we can discover through science. Science tells us that earthquakes existed long before humans had the possibility to commit the "original sin". Logic says earthquake and sin have no relation whatsoever. Right?
