How the catholic church won...............

many of the lawsuits against catholic dioceses was put on hold yesterday by the pennsylvania state supreme court. it stems form 17 sex abuse cases filed against the catholic archdiocese of philadelphia with alleged crimes dating back to 1957. a common pleas judge threw out the cases because the allegations were so old that the statutue of limitations had run out. a panel of superior courrt judges in philadelphia agreed. the setback is the state supreme courts decision in which the court refused to hear an appeal of the superior court decision. davis clohessy, national director of survivors network of those abused by priests said that this is a setback for public safety, a victory for child molesters and a relief for duplicitous bishops. the cases were filed against the diocese that covered up the molestations rather than against the individual priests. the victims claim that the diocese coverup of the molestations were only uncovered recently and should be allowed...but no that makes too much sense. "obviously we're very pleased" was the response of rev. ronald lengwin, pittsburgh catholic diocese spokesman. i guess saying something like "thank god we got away with it" or "in your face victims" was probably turned down as the response but that what his response meant. they (the cases) will now have to be looked at on a one by one to see if they fall within the narrow legal parameters set up by this lead case in philadelphia. i know what the law says but when i tell you that pennsylvania is run by the churches and the elderly you know i'm speaking the truth. theses archaic laws not only protect the molesters but they protect those who aid and abet them too. you true christians can now sleep peacefully knowing that you collection money will not go to the victims so greviously injured by these priests who were known and still protected by the bishops and cardinals. i hope the church at least buys condoms for the priests with this windfall.

by the way, yesterday was my 150th post. i know that the entire world awaits my words of wisdom every morning and most of you already knew this, having kept a count on your headboards. please send all congratulatory donations to my local catholic church where i will now be going for massages and the occasional happy ending.

ok guys, the weekend is upon us so LADIES AND GENTLEMEN..START YOUR PARTYING.

Congrats on becoming a member of the 150 club. I promise I won't use that term when you hit 700. What happened to football Friday? Oh wait, Steelers have a bye. Might want to catch some baseball this weekend.

No grading of New England game? Please don't confuse true christians with catholics. That's insulting!

seeing in this post that i didnt refer to anything but the catholic church i dont think they can be confused during this post....on the other hand i think that true christians dont fall for any organized religion. once your involved in a religion and think that yours is the true one ....you are no longer a christian

True Christians are devoted to Jesus Christ not some religion - organized or otherwise. The point I was trying to make was that true Christians don't belong to the catholic church, because the catholic church is a christian cult.

I thought it was tough being a catholic girl... at least

I belong to a cult. It's called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

You may have heard of it and been subjugated to the 19-21 year old evangelicals ("missionaries" by technicality, recruiters in actuality) trying to brainwash you and your neighbors into accepting theirs as the only way to a happy life.

As you can probably tell, my belonging to this organization is not a matter of choice. My dad is a Mormon bishop and refuses to sign the legal papers that would allow me, as a 16 year-old minor, leave the church until I am of legal accountability. Strange, I am capable of comitting a crime and being prosecuted as an adult, but I am NOT capable of determining my personal dogma. Amazing...

rachael: i'm getting ready to sue the catholic church because the priests didnt molest me. i think this explains my low self esteem. why father, wasnt i as cute as the other boys.

mike and michael: thanks for checking in. i find the fish fries one of the only redeeming things the church does.

daniel: i'm sorry to hear about what is going on with you. unfortunately you were born to someone who is so entrenched in their beliefs that they wont let you discover yours. hang tight, its only a couple of years until you are an adult and dont have to put up with that bs. write anytime dude, i'm always glad to hear from you

I don't know what to think of this regarding the limitations on cases.

I mean, they should be held accountable and sent to jail, but it is the law.

I think the statue of limitations needs to be expanded for certain cases esp. rape and child molestation.
