Celebrating Kansas City Catholic Sex Abuse Settlement For Christmas!!!



A bit of a review from the newspaper . . .

Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese, religious order settle sex abuse lawsuit

However . . .

Remember that TKC blogged this settlement earlier this month with more than a bit of detail straight from the source.

What's more important than any legal monetary prize . . .

TRAGICALLY ... WE HEAR THAT DONATIONS TO LOCAL CATHOLICS ARE DOWN ONCE AGAIN THIS YEAR AS THE STIGMA OF THE KANSAS CITY SEX ABUSE SCANDAL CONTINUES TO HURT THOSE DEPENDENT OF THE CHARITABLE EFFORTS OF THE CHURCH!!!

Some say holding back contributions is the only way to elicit change while other point that the most immediate result is more suffering inflicted on the poor . . .

You decide . . .

I call bullshit on that idea that not giving to the Catholic Church will hurt the poor. There are MULTIPLE local organizations that you can give money to that help the local poor, that are not affiliated with the church.

The Salvation Army is, by far, the most efficient and honest of the charities. If you feel compelled to donate, do it here...Really.

The Salvation Army is indeed a worthy and terrific charity. However, they are hardly far from perfect.

I agree that there are other ways to help the poor, but at the same time, I wonder how much those calling for an end to donations to the Catholic Church have ever given a dime to the Catholic Church.

When people do drop a check into the collection basket, what they are mainly doing is supporting their parishes, and it will be the parishes -- and those who work for parishes and parish schools, then lose their jobs -- who suffer when donations drop.

And how else can catholics demand a change in leadership? There is no other way to demand it, except hold back money. The laity are looked at as cash registers who are expected to shut up and pay. When the money drawer is empty, then the higher ups will listen. It's the system. The church is not a democracy. It doesn't care what the majority thinks.

Really? When was the last time any change came about because people withheld their contributions to their parishes?

How grossly capitalist and American to think your money talks so loudly.

So is "vibrating" the mouthpiece on a tromebone sorta like giving a hummer?

While the Salvation Army may be "far from perfect", they are head and shoulders above most of the other charities, that pay their CEO's millions of dollars. Really, take a look at how the SA spends it's dollars and compare that with say, the Red Stinking Cross.

Salvation Army sucks dick. You have poor starving people out in the cold bell ringing singing 'you'll get pie in the sky when you die"

Hey dumbass, those "poor starving people" are usually Rotarians and they've never missed a meal. This is volunteer work....two things you probably know little of. Volunteer and WORK...
