The police should’ve been involved in this decades ago.
Dallas authorities said they consider Paredes a fugitive.
I wonder where he was reassigned to. Dont you?
Evidently the police don’t believe the church doesn’t know more about Parades than they are telling.
And the cops are probably right.
Please, we dont need another Catholic bashing thread.
This is why I would never step a foot in a Catholic Church.
As a Catholic, I would say they brought a lot of it upon themselves.
That’s probably what the cops were looking for, records of his transfer.....
When examining the particulars of the RC cases, it is worthwhile to examine aggregate numbers of male priest actions against young:
If the population of children in an RC church is roughly 50/50 female-to-male, and they are more or less equally opportunity targets of the male priest (and not all alter boys, for example), then this will tell us something about the pederist’s preference for homosexual vs heterosexual targets.
The RC church cases provide, perhaps, a large enough sample size of data points, and m/f evidence, to draw some conclusions. And perhaps push back against the oft-heard claim that “pedophiles are not homosexuals” and “homosexuals are not pedophiles.”
And what makes you think this is such a thing?
Guilty conscience maybe?
Ask that of Catholics on Free Republic who get these threads pulled.
Do not fret, there will be a slew of 'everybody is doing it' threads before the sun goes down.
So FR is a Catholic website and Catholics get to say what is and isn’t allowed? Judging by the many many Catholic Caucus threads every day - you may be right.
Pedophilia needs to be searched out and destroyed where ever it exists.
That said, I can’t help but wonder if this renewed interest has anything to do with the newly elected mayor.
If you haven’t seen “her”, proceed with caution.
Yep. That’s why i don’t visit the religion forum nearly as much as in years past. The daily RC document dumps are an abundance vain repetition imo.
No one expects...
What we need is for the church to clean up it’s act.It’s beyond my understanding why the church resists.
From the article:
Dallas church officials have said they alerted law enforcement last year of allegations from three adults who said Paredes sexually abused them when they were in their mid-teens. The allegations were found to be credible, the church said.
The Dallas diocese suspended Paredes, and he's no longer allowed to function as a priest, the church said.
This has been studied. It’s about homosexual activity.
pedophiles are not homosexuals and homosexuals are not pedophiles.
There’s a slight of hand with this phrase. Technically a pedophile is someone who pursues pre-adolescents for sex. That’s not the common usage in news reports. The average user calls anyone a pedophile who pursues any minor for sex.
News reports play on this misunderstanding. It’s normal behavior for homosexuals to pursue teenagers for sex (almost all the Church scandal cases). That’s why the MSM will quote some academic who says “homosexuals aren’t pedophiles” knowing the public will misunderstand.
