But Mother Angelica is decidedly cherubic.
In Catholic school, in the '70s, some of the young ones in their late 20s were downright attractive.

Oh the flip side of that coin, have you ever had a good look at some of those priests? Not a one of them I have encountered looks to be under the age of 190!
That's the result when even large archdioceses like Boston and Philly graduate fewer than 10 priests per year. The average age of a priest in the US and Canada today is 68.

I was the one with the filthy mouth and bad attitude. At least, that's what the Penguin said.

This is a new low for you Bobby. Suggesting that a priest should be given a prize for sexually abusing a minor female.

Speaking of the soon to be defunct Episcopal Church:
"The headlines coming out of the Episcopal Churchís annual U.S. convention are stunning ó endorsement of cross-dressing clergy, blessing same-sex marriage, the sale of their headquarters since they canít afford to maintain it.
The American branch of the Church of England, founded when the Vatican balked at permitting King Henry VIII to continue annulling marriages to any wife who failed to bear him sons, is in trouble."
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/cross-dressin...
It may surprise, but I am largely in agreement here. For Episcopal and Lutheran clergy who have striven to be center-left on social issues and center-right on religious issues, the far left of the Episcopal (and its Lutheran sister the ELCA)leadership has resulted in local pastors having to be accountable for radical positions which do not attend to the lives of everyday people. Thus, if your laity becomes wary of church leadership focused on cross dressing rights or boycotting Israel, then it's very hard to sell the denominational hunger program....because trust has just been eroded. Trust has also been eroded by far left denial of the most basic of traditional doctrines...ie The Resurrection, The Trinity...Christianity cannot function without those basic doctrines intact.

The leadership of both the mainline Episcopal (TEC) and Lutheran (ELCA)churches are an economnic upper class elitist club. They live in a self-made bubble, and they simply don't care what damage they have done and will do to the Church. They are resigned to let their moderates and conservatives bleed out, and they'll see what they can keep of what's left, and settle for that in their smaller but more efficiently self-serving club...after the dust settles. Yes, they will sell off a lot of real estate, but they will simply relocate to more cost efficient, but comfortable abodes.

The crime of this far left leadership is that they destroyed any chance for a middle ground.

The burning question is still ... Was it a boy or was it a girl?

He should be given a prize if it is a girl. A priest doing a girl would be a first.

Catholic Priests are always running around raping and molesting little boys. Don't you think they should at least get some kind of award for being with a little girl. Shouldn't they at least be encouraged to get the gender of their victims right for once?

And off he goes...another flame war in execution?

Always? Really?

A reward for molesting a young girl? That's just sick.

Do you often think before you post or are you just hyper-vigilant?

Just my thinking maybe, but Catholic priests have, for millennia, been taught that contact with the opposite sex is wrong. Somewhere, the opinion has been twisted into the mindset that contact with males is somewhat less sinful. Am I right or wrong?

People go to Ohio University to take classes to learn how to write humor, whereas God gave me the natural talent. If you parse my phrase, you will see it has all the classical elements of HUMOR. Grow up!
