I know there have to actually be Bishops and ArchBishops who actually believe in the church and its teachings, and are not just woke leftists, but darn it is getting hard to find one these days.  Also it seems to be getting harder to find one who is not diddling little boys and girls.  One of our priests from our church got arrested for that.  He was an odd fellow to begin with.

We need purges. And not just in the churches.

Most Catholics I know tell me that most of the kids that were abused fell into the following categories:

1) Weaker kids.

2) Kids that came from from broken families.

Even older men in their 80's will tell that back in their day people would say don't get caught alone with father so and so. 

The sad thing is abusers seek out positions such as teacher, coach, scout master, minister etc. that will put them in close proximity to children. 

The sadder thing is people who  go into these fields because of a desire to help children are  often looked on with suspicion, especially males.

In our Cadet program we work with kids 9-12. The rule is that there must always be two adults in a room with the Cadets. When issuing uniforms, I generally get the parent to help, goes faster and the parent can manhandle the kid.

Also, positions of authority and/or influence.

Worst of all are those who go into law enforcement, because those with a badge are above suspicion and reproach. Based on a wide variety of news stories and anecdotes, I now believe quite a few feds are pedos.

It is also sad that we turn the other way due to the massive proliferation of scams, etc.  But we look at people who really do want to help with a jaundiced eye due to the bad apples.

Well looks like the Church of England aka Anglicans have just decided to make themselves completely irrelevant, and might as well adopt Satanism: https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2023/02/08/church-of-england-gender-neutral-god-n2619292  Even a hard core atheist is calling this nuts.  I am waiting for the Episcopal Church and Anglicans to offer abortions on the high altar right after services.

Just be honest and go pagan. 

I mean they have given up on Christianity, I suggest that the COE goes full druid, heck they already have human sacrifice as their centerpiece (abortion at will).

Anglican Priest forced to resign for admitting he believed in God.  Problem is this is NOT far from the truth.

I missed that the link was from the Bee at first.  Satire is finding it hard to beat real life nowadays.

There is a history of terrorist activity by radicals in the name of  Catholicism.  A group of them tried to blow up Parliament and assassinate the monarch a few years back.  Mind you they haven't been as active since.

On Satanism in Bungay...

Whilst one is supposed to tell the truth on the census, there is a well-established precedent for filling in the "other" option with whatever you feel like putting.

There's a good chance that "Jedi" was similar to "Satanist" for the same town.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jedi_census_phenomenon

Bungay is in Suffolk, which according to that wikipedia page reported between 0.5 and 0.6% Jedi, which would be 40-50 or so in a population of 8500.

The Bee's satire is only satire for the first 24-36 months, after which it becomes prescience.

Strangely the Bureau is not, TMK, concerned about the RCC priests involved in the illegal immigration/human trafficking industry. Which is the greater threat to John Q. Citizen; some modern remake of the Guy, or the cartels?

Bishop Knestout’s Statement Following Leaked Internal Memo from the FBI Richmond Field Office about Traditional Catholics and the Virginia Attorney General’s Response

Quote

(...)
The leaked document should be troubling and offensive to all communities of faith, as well as all Americans. I am grateful for the Virginia Attorney General and 19 attorneys general who have called upon the government to publicly release all materials related to the production of this memo. If evidence of extremism exists, it should be rooted out, but not at the expense of religious freedom. A preference for traditional forms of worship and holding closely to the Church’s teachings on marriage, family, human sexuality, and the dignity of the human person does not equate with extremism.

How some look at liberal brain washing of "U.S. teen girls 'in crisis' with unprecedented rise in suicidal behavior."

That was a pretty troubling announcement when I heard it on the news... but I'm not sure what your point is or what that link is supposed to show?

From listening to Shapiro's show this afternoon. Something like a 5% rise in reports of girls being harassed has resulted in a 60% rise in suicidal ideation or attempts. This means we need MORE naval gazing for girls, especially the LGBTQ types.

Not only would the COE NOT ordain this guy, they demanded he vow fealty to the leftist woke agenda.  So he got ordained in the Free Church of England.   Is it just me, or is Christianity attempting a mass suicide in the West?  Apparently the priest at our church even went a little too far left this last Sunday for my wife to overlook.  She has stopped asking me to attend.
