Nope, they are my brothers and sisters.

No you didn't -- you said Sevile had never been convicted of anything. Nor of course has the Pope whom you constantly abuse.

Because he has covered up child abuse. As you have been shown- but still deny.

The catholic church ( inc one papal knight J. Savile) has paid out millions possibly billions of pounds in compensation for repeated child rape and covering it up until thy could no longer. They admit it now because they were forced to. The Australian authorities have condenmed the catholic authorities for trying to stall, and stop inquiries, now the Germans have the same problem. The church stands condemned by it's own well known actions.

I have never, ever denied Savile was guilty- I stated he was never convicted. You have denied the popes culpability in child abuse cover ups- which I find totally odious- and you only do it on the grounds that he is leader of your vile church.

Please clarify if all the " "people of god" include the millions slaughtered in it's name.

It is a very common phrase- many religious phrases are common- but not useful.

I assume the worst of religion, and have rarely been wrong.

Really? The god of all those Native Americans slaughtered? All those Muslims your church murdered?

-"Nope, they are my brothers and sisters."
More like second cousins judging by your previous statement:

T. Woodman says:
'I do regard the World Council of Churches, the official body of the Christian churches in the world, as the authority for deciding which groups are fully Christian or not. They are unanimous that neither Mormons nor JWs are fully Christians and I agree with them on this, not with you.'
-

Of course Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons may direct the same level of condescension towards you.

If you care to consider the actual reasons, not the excitable press's versions, you will discover that it was cancelled as it was being carried out in an unprofessional manner by agencies happy to disclose information considered confidential. This did not impinge upon the actual investigation in a 'cover-up' manner, but in a way anyone has the right to confidentiality in any legal matter.

You have evidence of a cover-up, or are you just repeating the prejudiced party-line?

Poor choice of source. One of the more anti-Catholic sources, seemingly.

C. A. Small says:
I don't suppose it attracts the negative press due to repeated abuse and rape of children, abuse of unmarried mothers in institutions, abuse of power to avoid prosecution, concocting drivel out of myths and legends and forcing people to accept it for nearly two thousand years or being tortured or murdered, protecting nuns and priests who have complicity in genocide, and still teaching homophobic and misogynistic claptrap?

The New York Times is not a reliable source? So only the Tablet or the bible are to be trusted?

Great, just what we need on here another dogmatic catholic with a denial problem.

The German Church should be OK now that the Magdalene Laundry issue is taking the headlines... Is there no depths of depravity to which the Catholic Church cannot sink...

NO... not at all... the difference is that the secular society makes no claims to superiority morally... the catholic church, on the contrary, is full of such claims and yet plumbs the depths of depravity. In absolute terms there is no difference but as a statement of total hypocrisy it beggars belief.

Bellatori- no there is not.

They draw the line at female authority. You've got to have standards.

Interesting that the Irish government seems to be taking the flak for the Magdalene Laundries - has the Catholic Church issued a statement of any kind?

I was also interested to note that the last Magdalene Laundry closed as recently as 1996 - had it changed much/at all since the events we're hearing reported (which seem to be mostly in the 50s/60s)?
