    No, he is not my response. He is one example of an unbias perspective given he isn't Christian, let alone Catholic. There was another video that was shown on a news site saying how it was not physically possible for George Pell to reach in the Sacristy at the same time of the choir boys given how long it would've taken him to reach it, and how he always had another Priest with him.

    Seriously, think logically... do you really think a Priest would rape 2 boys in an open sacristy straight after mass knowing full well anyone can walk in at any time?

    That's 3 things that instantly show the insanity of this case.

    Who's to say it wasn't a "hot" shot. People do commit suicide by deliberately overdosing. Not all O.D's are by accident.

    Catholic priests raped their victims in their own bedrooms, repeatedly, with their families in the house at the time. So it's no stretch to think they would take advantage of any situation to rape more victims.

    And why would a Catholic priest fear discovery when they knew the church would protect them as they did and continue to do.

    I went to catholic school for 7 years and changing childrens perception of things is exactly what they did it was hammered into children every day scare tactics, the fires of hell, you must do this, you must do that, you must pray or you will go to hell , that is definately brainwashing children from 5 to 11 years old it may have changed now but that is what children in Catholic schools had to endure every day and ps I don't believe anything the media says

    I'm not getting involed in the religious debates.

    But in relation to when and where priests have abused children. Yes, its happened in a sacristy before and after mass. No doubt about it.

    It is not uncommon or difficult.

    You clearly have a strong faith in God (and a catholic one at that), and this isn't an attack on that at all ... but Pell's thing for boys was so widely known, and went back decades. He was kicked out of several public baths in his younger days and was famous for loving to fondle the genitals of boys in pools. I doubt his urges would have went away as he got older and more powerful.

    People being in denial is the very reason why perpetrators get away with what they do. Thankfully, victims are slowly becoming more confident to speak out (and this applies in any sexual abuse situation where there is power and influence involved - lok at the video of Gavin Badger recently.

    I did scripture in 1st grade.
    I was never allowed to sit in class after asking the teacher "if god is all powerful and loving and the devil is bad then shouldn't we be praying to.the devil to leave us alone?"

    Her response was "GET OUT AND FACE THE WALL IN THE BAG ROOM".

    Every scripture lesson from then on she would always keep me in the bag room facing the wall.

    I was that rare boy who could challenge adults with their nonsense so I had to eliminated.

    There is a massive difference between faith and religion I respect all people’s faith but the majority of religions have done horrendous shit in the name of their gods,religions used fear and intimidation to control the masses since their inception, religion has fuck all to do with faith and spirituality for mine

    The biggest thing for me is the teaching of Hell and Satan, both of which do not exist in Judaism.

    That's what most sheep can't understand. Faith is different to religion.

    I love being a Christian and label myself Christian and don't label myself with man made religion.

    IE

    Faith = Christianity, Judaism and Islam
    Religion = Catholic, Orthodox and Sunni
    Cults = Mormans, SDA and Scientology

    Heres a depiction of how the real Yeshuwa/Jesus would of looked.

    As you can see he didn't look like the first biker, who was also the lead guitarist in a heavy metal band!

    I went through the Christian thing for many years. Read the bible back to front 4 times. I remember one of the early scripture classes they handed us some questions we were to ask them, 'cause they wouldn't answer questions they hadn't prepared themselves. Funny thing is that after a few of the questions the guy said, "people ask us questions all the time and we always find answers in the Bible. Sometimes it takes a while but the bible has an answer for everything"

    This was shortly after we had a class on Quasars. So straight after this I said, "what does the bible say about the large energy output of Quasars?"

    Of course I got in trouble

    Yep. I used to bring this up all the time. When I still believed in the Abrahamic God, people would ask if I was religious and I'd say "no". Religion is ceremony
    Going to church, cannibalising christ, etc. Faith is something related but not the same thing.

    The images we have today in paintings and print are certainly western culturally contrived.. A perfect example of this is how Joseph..Mary’s husband and Christ’s ‘Step-father’..is depicted in many paintings.. He is depicted as an older man..the purpose of this is to visually illustrate the fact that he could not father Jesus..or any children.. as he was too old to do so..(no viagra in those days!)..As such emphasising the point that Mary was a virgin and Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit..

    Certainly some subliminal messages being conveyed..
