The marriage comment was intended as sarcasm. Married teachers have obviously preyed upon children. The fact is there are perverts who seek places where they are in a position of trust and have easy access to children. Some become Priests. Some become Teachers. John Wayne Gacey (sp?) was a Clown.

I will not condemn every Priest, Teacher and Clown based upon the behavior of a few. Yes, schools, courts and dioceses have failed to adequately prosecute.

I turned away from the Catholic Church long ago. Later I discovered Bible based Christianity (without the Missle and the Mass). When I really read God’s Word I felt angry at the Church. After much time and much prayer I let go of my anger and felt a lot of chains fall from my soul.

Should have paid closer attenton to the Missal, not Missle(sic) during Mass; Old Testament, Psalm, New Testament, Gospel, Apocalypse of Saint John. You were right in the midst of Bible Based Christianity and didn't even realize it.

"Really read God's Word?" You mean you read it in the original Greek/Hebrew? Wow!

What you don't know or never learned is that: 1.) By leaving the Mass behind, you leave behind the oldest and greatest prayer in all of Christianity, practiced since the Last Supper. 2.) When Jesus said, "My flesh is real food, and my blood real drink. He who does not eat my flesh and drink my blood has no life within him," you responded by saying "This is a hard saying. Who can abide it?"

I pray that someday, Christ will reveal himself to you in the Eucharist.
