Catholic Church financial scandals in Germany

As if pedophile-priest lawsuits causing loss of faith in Vatican purity and infallibility aren’t enough to sour anyone on accepting anymore papacy pap, now the Catholic Church in Germany is mired in a few financial scandals all its own.

Confession: some of the kindest people I’ve ever known throughout my life have been those of the Catholic persuasion, people who really put their actions on the line as expressions of a deeply held faith and compassion for their fellow man.

And of course, the larger an organization, the more rats may lurk near, in this case, the cookie jar – the one with Other People’s money in it.

Of course, molesting children is a form of thievery, too – of innocence, for one thing. Seems the CC has a big fat, ongoing blindspot – the bad habit of thieving. Some might call it Boundary Issues if they were feeling psychological about it…’what’s yours is actually mine if I desire it’.

Now many moons ago, when I learned in school of what went on during the Spanish Inquisition as perpetrated by the Catholic Church, I also learned some of what the Vatican is capable of doing in the world when it puts its goat head to the grindstone.

So can anyone actually believe that the Catholic Church has mended its ways in 2010? Please enlighten!

  1. For those with some faith left converting from the Church to God might
    indeed be the solution to the problem of any such dependence. It is the
    Augustinian theology with which such dependencies as mentioned in the
    article, were created.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
