Celibacy and secrecy drive Catholic Church child abuse

Mandatory celibacy was and is 'the major precipitating risk factor for child sexual abuse', the report says, and Popes and bishops had fostered a culture of secrecy that allowed abuse to continue.

'The deep, dark history of clerical child sexual abuse has been found to exist in every corner of the Latin rite of the Catholic Church,' the report says. 'To attribute it solely to a series of personal failings of individual priests and religious insinuating that they were just a few "rotten apples" is simply not credible.'

The study by Professor Des Cahill and Dr Peter Wilkinson was released last week by RMIT University in Melbourne and offers a comprehensive and damning assessment of the reasons behind child sexual abuse in the Church. ...

It's not celibacy that drives the RCC, but rather the warm welcome, secrecy and financial support the vatican has offered for centuries to its own members of "Club Moloch" and "Club Sodom". (My apologies for not being able to embed the link below)

Right, nothing, whatsoever to do with a vow of celibacy. For starters, it's not like they didn't know what they were getting into, and knew that they would be willingly vowing to, well, be celebrate for the remainder of their lifetimes as Priests.
The clincher for me is that any one of these deviants could have had a woman on the side or picked up hookers if they were overwhelmed. Not that those are acceptable options, but there mere fact that they preferred helpless, young children when they had other options, just proves the case that they were pedophiles, and/or sodomites, or at least had the tendencies to begin with.

Or it is a fulfilment of scripture as Catholic 'preist' don't like to retain knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a reprobate mind!:
Romans 1:28-29

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

What happens when you teach doctrine of devils.
1 Timothy 4:1-3

4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

Most of the sexual abuse is against BOYS. What does that tell you about the priests who hide in celibate cloth? You want that that they should be able to marry other men? Connect the dots, John. Celibacy is a place to hide what many of them are, not a sacrifice made so they could "marry the church."

From Article::
""Mandatory celibacy was and is 'the major precipitating risk factor for child sexual abuse', the report says, and Popes and bishops had fostered a culture of secrecy that allowed abuse to continue.""

The problem being, Will Satan allow his followers to accept this simple and obvious truth??
Satan empowers his followers by sin to oppose all that is Biblical.

1John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil."

At a time of great apostasy in the churches and of moral decline in the western nations this will probably just remain in the category of media interest.

The Romish organisation has been non-faithful, a treacherous false witness, idolatrous, heretical and thus satanic for centuries.

His book's Chaper 10
"God compels the Church of Rome to confess the Abominations of Auricular Confession."

He compared RCC leaders to a father who would allow his child to put his fingers in the fire, while advising him to be cautious lest he burn himself

"Listen rather to the invitations of your Saviour, who has died on the cross, that you might be saved; and who, alone, can give rest to your weary souls.
Hearken to His words, when He says to you: "Come unto Me, O ye heavily laden, crushed, as it were, under the burden of your sins, and I shall give you rest. . . I am the Physician of your souls. . . Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. . . Come, then, to Me, and ye shall be healed. . . I have not sent back nor lost any who have come to
Me. . . invoke My name. . . believe in Me. . . repent. . . love God, and your neighbor as yourself, and you shall be saved. . . For all who believe in Me and call upon My name, shall be

Does this not tell you something about Catholicism then? The RCC has included Mary (she is no longer a virgin) as co-redemptrix. Christ is no longer the only one with power to save, but according to the RCC, Mary is now needed to intercede on our behalf in order to secure salvation.

Dear John, do you believe this? If not, then how can you, in good conscience belong to a church that does?

Romanist Jesuit troll,
The day I take advice from an unregenerate sinner will never come.
You come here daily spewing out your nonsense, which includes defending a dead religion. Then you parrot your same old responses that you've memorized for decades and you think you are fooling the elect. You are not, nor are you fooling God. You are void of truth because you haven't ears to hear. May God have mercy on you.
You haven't a clue about the sin nature of mankind, or what lies in the hearts of sinners. You are ignorant of biblical truth because you are not of Christ's sheep.
Again, may God have mercy.
Pastor Steve, all the Elders and Deacons and every member of that Baptist Church that I attend on Sunday mornings accept that I am truly saved and thus not unregenerate because I had surrendered my life to Christ and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation. Read the first sentence of this article lady. Does it not state "Mandatory celibacy was and is the major precipitating risk factor for child sexual abuse"?

Dear John, please answer this question. Do Catholics pray to Mary or to Jesus for salvation? Does the catholic depend upon Christ alone or does the Catholic need an emissary to close the deal?

The very first sentence of this article states "Mandatory celibacy was and is the major precipitating risk factor for child sexual abuse". So that takes care of your nonsense that celibacy has nothing to do with priests engaging in child sexual abuse. So the god of the Catholic Church is not the God of the Holy Bible? The Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "WE BELIEVE IN ONE GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY. WE BELIEVE IN ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD. WE BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT." That is God the RCC believes in.

"clue that pederasty, and to a lesser degree pedophilia, are on the fast track to being decriminalized in much the same way sodomy has come to be decriminalized, is evident from the recent cave-in of certain professional and scientific organizations in reaction to pressure from the Homosexual Collective with regard to re-evaluating adult/child sexual relations in a more favorable light.
