    Is Pope Francis/Catholic Church Leaders EVIL? Are Catholics complicit?

    I wonder how people can continue to fund, attend and ascribe to the doctrine of the Catholic Church after all of the evil that the church has done specifically regarding molest and abuse of children and generally of the history of evil doings over centuries?

    Just another thing below to add to the long list of things that make me believe Catholic church leaders are evil.

    Am I wrong?

    Read that this morning. Disheartening to say the least. Why should the Catholic church be any different then any other political entity or country. Eventually, heavy with power and money, they corrupt themselves.

    Always one of my favorites

    Exodu32:7

    “And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:”

    The Catholic Church has done some pretty bad things. They handled the child abuse thing miserably. No excuse.
    But, it seems we always look at the richest religions, countrys , and people to go after for bad things they have done.
    We need to focus on People that do bad things and not say everyone in that religion, or country is bad.. Unless we are at war, then its game on.

    I do believe the Church leadership is corrupt and even evil. I don't think most Catholics are. I have known many fine Catholics. I believe Annie here on this forum is a devout Catholic, and she seems like a very fine lady and great human being. I personally don't subscribe to the doctrine, and find my close encounters with God at the top of mountains, or in the emptiness of the desert.

    Full disclosure: I was raised Catholic. My cousins and I were alter boys. We had great experiences in the church and the priest and nuns were good to us kids. Unfortunately that is not the case with all concerned all the time. The Church playing musical priests to protect the Church was a horrible policy that allowed molistation of additional children. The leadership has been criminally complicit. The faithful are appalled by such acts as would any moral being. The Church heirachy is out of touch and has made the problem worse.

    I am currently a nondenominational Christian because I am getting the right message to feed my soul. I wasn’t growing spiritually in the Church. There will always be those who gain positions of trust that will abuse that trust and use their positions for evil. Politics, teachers, police, clergy and so on. The Bible warns us to watch out for such wolves in sheeps clothing. The Church has had corruption though out its history and survived and I believe that will be the case but it is going to take a beating.

    Good responses all, I appreciate them as I am struggling with grouping Catholics in the same evil category as so called moderate muslimes who fund islamists who want you and me dead.

    Isn't it the same thing with church going Catholics who tithe and those funds go to the evil doers in the Vatican and elsewhere within the Catholic Church?

    Interesting discussion right here. Will vote with those who say Catholics in general are near all super nice folks. Wife was partially raised by a nice Catholic family and I helped guard there big Church over where I worked many times. Had to come make sure they was not getting too wild on casino night etc. They treated me very nice. Think I done told the story about following the money tenders to the bank to make an after hours deposit. When about half way down the chute the overfilled money bag got hung up in the teeth of the accepter gizmo. It was right ofter Easer or Christiams I think. Those jokers had me out there with a tire tool prizing around on the deopository to try to make it go on down. Sure somebody was taking movies of that. Expected the FBI to come knocking any day. lol. Then on top of all that we were Lutherans for sevreal years..and that is just Catholics minus the statues of the Virgin Mary. So I am sorta familar with ritualistic hocus pocus bs. Their theology is all messed up..but fortunately the Gospel of Christ is highly durable. Hopefully durable enough to survive commie Jesuit Popes. I have took a vow to not trash talk other Christian denominations or cults..so thats all I know about that. It is sorta astounding how much they are collectiong off the US government to take care of the undocumented democrats.

    I was raised Catholic. I am not a devout Catholic. I have faith in the Lord, God.. My faith may not be as strong as others. I do not go to Church ever week at all and havent in quite some time.
    But, I believe in Jesus Christ and what he did for us and his sacrifices. I believe. Thats my faith..
    It does bother me that the Catholic Church is the only one brought to light on this molestation issue.
    Islam calls for it. I am sure every other religion, cult and members only club has had issues with the same dang thing.

    Yep the current Pope is a commie tool of the globalists without a doubt. There are also a chunk of the Catholic Higher Leadership that is corrupt. With that said, most Catholics are good people and most Priest/Nuns are good people.
