Nowadays, we can hear more [bad] news about the Catholic church than in former times, during the papacy of John-Paul II. Fortunately, at that time he was bringing hope and love, while today the news recently appeared in the media relates more about child abuse in Ireland, Germany, United States or The Netherlands.

Probably, for some it is quite hard to accept but those child abuses took place in churches and were performed by some of the clergy. Normally, people they go there for understanding, love, help, compassion and they get abused. Yes indeed, they are others who also abuse kids, but at least they do not claim to be the guidance and hope for them and claiming all this in the name of God and Christianity.

I am really glad, probably others are not that these horrific stories are know by the large public and the society should judge those criminals even if they are bishops, ministers or others. No one is above the law, not even the Vatican.

We can judge it as being a selfish act of some (evil) persons belonging to the church but I would like to have your opinion once your kid or relative would be involved in such an event. Probably in that case even those who are defending with all strengths the Catholic church as institution will change their opinion.

Can you imagine? You are sending your kid to Sunday School and he or she is just abused by some maniac? I hope this will never happen again and all those guys will face criminal charges and stand behind the bars many years to have enough time for repentance.

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 19, 14)

In order to support my blog, please read some articles about Irish child abuse and some similar stories in Germany or similar investigation in The Nederlands.
