Kansas City Catholics Work Toward Reconciliation With Community After Abuse

There's a struggle for the heart and soul of the church and we can only hope that kindness, understanding and genuine compassion wins out over politics. 

Accordingly, the journey towards true forgiveness and justice starts with a focus on healing victims.

This article notes an inspiring effort . . .

Name change reflects the desire to walk with victims

by Moira Cullings moira.cullings@theleaven.org "Two years ago, I never thought I would return to a church building, ever," said Sandra. A survivor of abuse by a representative of the Catholic Church, the journey to find healing for Sandra, whose name has been changed for anonymity, has been difficult.

Smoke and mirrors.

7:19 the concern is smoke and mirrors. The abuse is real, as is the the cover up.

In France yesterday a Priest was shot point blank by a gun with a shotgun. Probably a formerly raped child who grew up and harbored the anger of no justice for himself. People including parents really don't care if their child is raped by a Priests. If they bitch about it personally - it might mean they spend more time in purgatory after they die! After all the Catholic Church is infalliable - so the rapes must be ok???

The Catholic church looks like the path to heaven - but its only a portal to hell.

The abuse survivor is stupid. Returning to a Catholic Church? She is enabling the abuse scandal to continue. She should stand in front of the church day and night with banners naming the priests that abused her for years - warning people. But no, she is a sinful woman, so sinful she overlooks the sins of her fellow sinners. Just like the German citizens and the Nazis. She is as bad or worse then the priests!

"An abuse survivor should never feel abandoned by the church" she says?

I say an abuse survivor should feel raped, lied to, a victim of racketeering, disrespected by the church and seen as just a live sex toy to the pervert Priests, who are part of a Pagan religion that God has damned. Its obvious that the Pope will never make it to heaven, and Mary, a jewish woman is not even part of the church, she is dead in her grave, awaiting the reserection according to Jesus - or does the Catholic Church not believe Jesus or the bible? Of course they don't. Satan is laughing each time a child is raped.

Creepy, Sleepy, Sniffy, Gropey Joe and Sleezy, Druggie, Philandering, Laptop Loser Hunter may have some big reconciliations to do. It's reported that daughter, Ashley, wrote diary confessionals that Hiden Biden had her taking nude showers with him during her childhood, and that Burismo boy's laptop had photos of him nude with his niece. Ewww.

The Catholic Church is clearly "not the way". Its the most ungodly group of men. Vatican city is stuffed with the rarest art objects, gold, silver, jewels, rubies, rare books, treasures from all ancient civilizations, possibly even the Jewish Ark of the Covenant. They are extremely interested in material objects of great value. Not people. Just material things. That in and of itself is a sign of a Godless organization.

Anyone that gives a penny to the Catholic Church will answer for it on judgement day in front of God. You will be found guilty. Hell - not purgatory!

So Priests stick their sex organs up a young children's anuses for centuries and this victim woman goes BACK to Catholic church? Stockholm syndrome at its worse.
