    To paraphrase Senator Rick: "It's time to drain some brain pans!"

    It's the Archdiocese of Milwaukee!

    About 550 people are asking for restitution for alleged sexual abuse by clergy in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee — more than in any of the other U.S. dioceses that have filed for bankruptcy protection, according to a lawyer involved in the Milwaukee case.

    The Milwaukee Archdiocese filed for bankruptcy protection last year, saying pending sex-abuse lawsuits could leave it with debts it couldn't afford.
    The archdiocese has paid more than $30 million in settlements and other court costs related to allegations of clergy abuse and more than a dozen suits against it have been halted because of the bankruptcy proceedings. One priest alone is accused of abusing some 200 boys at a suburban school for deaf students from 1950 to 1974.

    I don't know how people can keep contributing week after week to the catholic church. Let those fuckers use public defenders. :D

    Word is that some Milwaukee area sheep farmers remembered having a lot of visits from the priest for the blessing of the flock. They put two and two together and are now up in arms.

    The Catholic Church could sell 1/100 of it's real estate holdings, or artwork and pay the victims what they deserve

    Because they believe that taking a vow of abstinence will stop their deviant urges

    My mother-in-law was furious with my sister-in-law for allowing the family's only male heir (my nephew) to be an altar boy in their parish.
    A formerly devout Catholic, my mother-in-law has fallen out of love with the Church in the wake of the epidemic pederasty apparently endemic to religious orders of every stripe and on every coast.

    Then again... she's always felt that nuns were secretly concubines for the priests.

    I've had no religious affiliation since I was 13 or 14... or as soon as I could cut Sunday School and avoid attending church services without getting a beating- but I don't have an issue with anyone having consensual sex with a male or female of legal age.

    It's the goddamn heathens perverting young boys and girls that brings out the Puritan savage in me.
    Burn them out and then burn down their place of refuge.
    Other than that, I'm cool with just with just about everything... hetero and/or homo whore mongering, and the imbibing of any and all inebriants.
    Just don't go around fucking children and expect me not to call for public executions.
