As far as has been presented in the press,

these two men haven’t prayed or preyed upon any children…

something that cannot be said of the catholic church and its leadership as it conspired to hide its sordid transgressions for hundreds of years, and even centuries.

No matter what the leadership or parishioners say or do to defend the church, Wrong is Wrong!

Has the catholic church leadership no shame ?

Have parishioners no shame by making excuse after excuse for a corrupt church leadership?

What is shameful, is that some are judged for being open and providing transparency,

While others receive acclimations for concerning illicit and shameful conduct, condoned for too long by too many.

Perhaps the catholic church should sell “indulgences” to its victims as a way to forgive those victims for having the audacity to expose the church for what it is, or more correctly, what it is not!

Clearly, these two people are far more Christian, than the catholic church when you examine their motives, and examine the motives of the church for scheming to hide the transgressions of its priests, and leadership for years!

Why. . . ?

When the catholic church, found itself to be open to law suit after law suit, and possibly having to part with its shekels,

why did it seek in so many instances to hide its money by transferring monies to other catholic run entities, and thereby demonstrating to the courts that it was either broke or nearly broke and successfully hid their money by schemes,

all the more reminiscent of the rich, their corporations, and their never-ending schemes to hide their cash, wealth, and assets,

to defraud the catholic churches' victims from monetary compensation, all the while, the catholic church in rome, sanctioned the idea and end-run around any form of compensation to its victims.

On the other hand, the roman catholic church of America, has for decades, too many decades,

shamefully endorsed homosexuality, not only secretly, but has the audacity to cover-up such transgressions when and while they prayed, preyed and played upon children.

This is one true test of hypocritical thinking and one true testament to the hypocrisy of the catholic church in America, in the upper peninsula and all of the catholic dioceses across the country.

Has the church shame?

Has the church NO SHAME ?

When have so few been able to enjoy their excesses

at the expense of so many?

Here we go again, the roman catholic church of America, has the audacity to speak down to its lowly parishioners,

who have the compunction to openly and transparently bear witness and testify to their care for another human being!
