PROTESTANT PASTORS CHARGED WITH SEX CRIMES
« on: Tue Nov 10, 2015 - 11:29:29 »
While it is easy to point an accusing finger at the Catholic Church for decades of covered up child abuse, it appears to be far too easy to ignore the fact that the problem of coercive sex crimes are just as, if not more prevalent among Protestant churches in America today. Of course, we don’t hear about them in the national news because they aren’t inter-connected to a massive worldwide organization like the Vatican. However, isn’t the scariest part that these crimes go on right in front of our nose while nobody really talks about it simply because Protestant pastors don’t wear “funny robes”?........http://www.awkwardmomentsbible.com/shocking-pastors-on-the-prowl/

The Protestant Clergy Sex Abuse Pattern

One of the most striking aspects of the Protestant clergy sex abuse pattern is that most people don't realize it is a pattern...........

There Is More Sexual Abuse In The Protestant Churches Than Catholic
« Reply #2 on: Tue Nov 10, 2015 - 11:35:02 »
Tchividjian had become convinced that the Protestant world is teetering on the edge of a sex-abuse scandal similar to the one that had rocked the Catholic Church. He is careful to say that there’s not enough data to compare the prevalence of child sex abuse in Protestant and Catholic institutions, but he’s convinced the problem has reached a crisis point. He’s not alone in that belief. In 2012, Christian radio host Janet Mefferd declared, “This is an epidemic going on in churches. … When are evangelicals going to wake up and say we have a massive problem in our own churches?” For years, Protestants have assumed they were immune to the abuses perpetrated by celibate Catholic priests. But Tchividjian believes that Protestant churches, groups, and schools have been worse than Catholics in their response. Mission fields, he says, are “magnets” for would-be molesters; ministries and schools do not understand the dynamics of abuse; and “good ol’ boy” networks routinely cover up victims’ stories to protect their reputations. He fears it is only a matter of time before it all blows up in their faces and threatens the survival of powerful Protestant institutions. ........

Protestants can no longer dismiss abuse as a ‘Catholic problem’

 It is time for Protestants who have complacently dismissed church abuse as a “Catholic problem” to face the reality that abuse is endemic across denominations. .......http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/may/29/protestants-abuse-catholics-methodist-church

Is it your opinion that people post articles about child sex abuse for their satisfaction?  Is that why there are so many non-Catholics swarming about the priest sex abuse scandal like flies?  Is it that they care less about children than they do about slandering the priesthood?

No sir! I'm wondering how many threads it takes for Paulus to make his point. I can usually do it with one.

I'll tell you my opinion Catholica! The RCC church is very desparate! It's members are constantly making excuses for its leadership, and these threads are propoganda for that purpose. it's not about the kids, it's about the almighty church!

They have every reason to, their actions were dispicable for a very very long time. Sending phedophiles on to another church to abuse again and again, they are just as guilty as the abusers. 
This is what happens when you ignore Gods  teaching about church leaders. He always knows best.

You have got it wrong as usual .

The article accepts the scale of the scandal within the Church but is honest enough to indicate the scale of the scandal in Protestant denominations .

You can rest assured if one of our preachers takes a young boy on a camping trip to uncover his nakedness, and the child speaks up, it will be all over the news. The claims of Paulus are exactly what I said they are.

God is only shouting from the rooftops what has taken place in secret.  God will not let the RCC church hid it.

It's about truth .

And if you care to read the links , you will find that most of them are written by Protestants who are honest enough to confess what is going on their denominations .

If there is any smoke screen , it is created by some enemies of the Church who refuse to accept the WHOLE  truth .

There are many more than 9 articles , by the way , and all written by Protestants who are not truth-deniers and smoke screen manufacturers .

It's fortunate that the Protestants on this forum are not typical of Protestants as a whole .

As a whole most Protestants , at least in the world in which I live , are gutted by the scandal and admit that their denominations are effected as much as the Church .

There are promiscuous sexual behavior in all churches, but The RCC has a serious problem within their priesthood, that is known worldwide concerning their priest molesting young innocent boys, who were trusted to them by their parents, whom the young boys most likely looked up to as well. Children are so innocent of the sexual world we know, and they are without clue, until they experienced it from a evil monster, who they thought were little gods so to speak.

Why don't these adult males, who are forbidden to marry, have affairs with women instead of molesting little boys?

There is a serious problem in the Protestant world that is not being dealt with.  There was also a serious problem in the Catholic world that was already dealt with in the US and is being dealt with similarly in other countries.

The point of my response, however, is that the sexual abuse has nothing to do with the fact that they are celibate.

There are lots of unmarried men out there.  That doesn't mean that, because these men are unmarried, they have a tendency to molest boys.  The two are not related.

1st century, Gnostic heresy, marriage is evil.  That's what the Bible is referring to. 

Men in the Catholic faith are not forbidden to marry.  Some men take a vow willingly to be celibate for Christ.  That is altogether different.

Moreover, if these men decide to leave the priesthood, they are often granted permission from the Church to be married.  In short if these men wanted to be married, all they have to do is give up their ministry and the Church will free them from their vow of celibacy. 

It is ignorant to think that this is the doctrine of demons, that this is "forbidding marriage".  By no means.

There are many more than 9 articles , by the way , and all written by Protestants who are not truth-deniers and smoke screen manufacturers .

It's fortunate that the Protestants on this forum are not typical of Protestants as a whole .

As a whole most Protestants , at least in the world in which I live , are gutted by the scandal and admit that their denominations are effected as much as the Church .


There's some of us who don't see it your way Paulus. I see it as taking advantage of an unfortunate situation to further the cause. One only has to read the beliefs of Catholicism to understand.

Trying to deflect attention from your own problems now?  Most of these Protestant abusers are married, are they not?
There are promiscuous sexual behavior in all churches, but The RCC has a serious problem within their priesthood, that is known worldwide concerning their priest molesting young innocent boys, who were trusted to them by their parents, whom the young boys most likely looked up to as well. Children are so innocent of the sexual world we know, and they are without clue, until they experienced it from a evil monster, who they thought were little gods so to speak.   

It is tied to the doctrine of demons of forbidding marriage.

1st century, Gnostic heresy, marriage is evil.  That's what the Bible is referring to. 

Men in the Catholic faith are not forbidden to marry.  Some men take a vow willingly to be celibate for Christ.  That is altogether different.

Moreover, if these men decide to leave the priesthood, they are often granted permission from the Church to be married.  In short if these men wanted to be married, all they have to do is give up their ministry and the Church will free them from their vow of celibacy. 

It is ignorant to think that this is the doctrine of demons, that this is "forbidding marriage".  By no means.

In order to serve as clergy, they have to be "willingly celibate."  That led to their outlet for young boys.

And yes, doctrine of demons.

An interesting side note-
About four years ago, I took a Human Sexuality course in college, which was taught by a Christian instructor, who also had his own practice as a therapist for sexual abuse victims, sexual dysfunction, etc. So he told us (and provided the stats to back it up) that when men are isolated and not given access to women for sex, they often (but not always) turn to other men for sex. When the men are put back in an environment where they have access to women, they stop having sex with other men and turn back to women for sex. They also don't think of themselves as homosexuals, or bi-sexual. This happens in situations such as prison, military, and other situations where men don't have access to women.
So this makes me wonder about priests/clergy who turn to little boys instead of women, when it's obvious they could have access to women in their churches. There's something more brewing here....

Would not alter boys be a little more accessible inside of the parish?

Yes, true.
