I’m in wonder why a statement like-”There are bad seeds among the clergy,” was made by Pope Benedict? Shouldn’t the Pope, who was appointed to the highest position in the Catholic Church, have a different perspective?
Maybe something along the line of –”Clearly, the clergy are/were very ill and need physiological assistance. We have removed all offending clergy from their positions and they’ll receive the help they desperately need. The church and I are committed to create a safer environment for our children. We’ll do everything we can to assist in every way possible to resolve what should of been handled many years ago.”
Wouldn’t that be more Christ like?
And isn’t the church part of the weed mix, which included the “bad seeds,” statement the Pope was speaking about at Fatima?
Again, the old ways are not working in the church or in our world. Look around. It’s everywhere! We are now knee deep in oil, due to those not thinking about anything more than their pocket books and not looking at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is showing up everywhere!
Recently, it has been revealed and buried somewhere, the oil companies did not have the proper permits to drill. What? And during a recent interview, someone who stated he was in the “know” mentioned the log book and black box are missing. Another— WHAT? I found this to be absolutely crazy, that BP is using toxic chemicals to clean up the oil. Why is this allowed when there are others coming forward with safer methods but are being ignored? Kevin Costner, for one. And now, those who are helping in this exhaustible effort are getting ill.
Our elected officials should be placing this disaster on high priority. Just like what the church should have done.
As I’ve stated in other blogs, the molestations are a major violation to the young and innocent and a sadness I have had a difficult time with, but to call the clergy bad seeds, instead of very ill and disturbed human beings, I’m confused that this statement came from a holy man.
There are reasons for all of the chaos. And some know what the reasons are. Others, still in slumber, not paying much attention. Believing things should be handled the way they’ve always been handled.
The next 4 months will be very interesting with more to unfold. The Mayans warning has been virtually ignored.
