Not quite sure what to make of this.

Well, at first I was struggling with the actual words. I think I fried my brain with intensive writing (wrote about a quarter of a chapter in a few minutes), or maybe I was still in writing mode, which disabled my "understanding" area. After a careful reread of (some of) the story, I just think that saying "sorry" isn't good enough. Abuse damages adults. You can only imagine what it does to children; especially from people they're supposed to trust.

Don't assume everyone knows as much as you do and/or thinks the same way you do. You're going to be severely disappointed.

I agree, but I think the apology is still a very good thing.

And thank you for elaborating.

I think we can all agree on that. However, it's still not good enough.

And thank you for elaborating.

You're welcome.

... Because the article was posted. If anyone has the Internet you can 'Google' search the topic. If you want these and other history lessons on religious bullshit you can do continue to search the internet. 


Or better yet, you can read many other past posts here on this very forum - I'm assuming MM is is somewhat intelligent but why does he have to act as if this is the first time humanity has heard about the churches atrocities.

Edit - MM mentioned he's a father so he's either not putting himself in the shoes of other parents as he reads the article or he's being purposely naive and quick to be ignorant to the issue and pretend it doesn't/didn't happen? I have read his reposenes to other posts...

MM- you mentioned you were a father in pervious posts. If one of your children were abused sexually and happen to be scared for life would an apology be justice and all it would require for you? Now lets say your child was the just the latest of a long list of others innocence that was taken.

Why or why not - please explain

Don, all I wanted clarified was OAA's opinion on the apology. I think the apology is a good thing. I didn't suggest, and am not suggesting, it 'makes everything OK'

It's a good thing in that they're admitting wrong, that they are not hiding behind excuses but of course the apology doesn't make up for anything. It could go the other way of attempting to cover everything up, distort evidence and do everything they can do save their asses and their reputation.
