"...the mouth of the wicked..."

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, now feels "deep sorrow and regret" for his statement that the Catholic Church in Ireland has lost "all credibility." See here. As well he should. For the Proverbs teach us that, "The just man weighs well his utterance, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil" (15: 28).

However, as I explained in a previous post, Archbishop Williams has argued - against the entire Christian Tradition - that homosexual relationships are comparable to marriage while attempting to make a case for active same-sex relationships. And he is not alone. The many forces behind the New World Order seek to discredit the Church because She alone stands in the way of the satanic agenda to prepare the way for the emergence of the Man of Sin.

Homosexuality is ranked among the "sins that cry to heaven for vengeance." Which is why the angels said to Lot: "We are about to destroy this place, for the outcry reaching the Lord against those in the city is so great that he has sent us to destroy it." In his Second Epistle, St. Peter explains how the punishment inflicted on Sodom and Gomorrah stands as a warning to evildoers: "God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction, reducing them to ashes, making them an example for the godless of what is coming." (2 Peter 2: 6).

Archbishop Williams needs to repent of the evil which he has promoted. The evil of a sin which cries to heaven to vengeance. See here. Also Genesis 19: 13.

Archbishop Williams, homosexual acts do not offer hope. Only despair and death. Repent of this.

I was really disappointed with the Archbishop. So too were most Irish Catholics. But it is his promotion of homosexuality which is really driving a wedge between himself and orthodox Christians. Utterly disgraceful.

Meanwhile the MSM ignore abuse across the rest of society:

WASHINGTON, DC, April 1, 2010 ( – In the last several weeks such a quantity of ink has been spilled in newspapers across the globe about the priestly sex abuse scandals, that a casual reader might be forgiven for thinking that Catholic priests are the worst and most common perpetrators of child sex abuse.

But according to Charol Shakeshaft, the researcher of a little-remembered 2004 study prepared for the U.S. Department of Education, "the physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests."

After effectively disappearing from the radar, Shakeshaft’s study is now being revisited by commentators seeking to restore a sense of proportion to the mainstream coverage of the Church scandal.

According to the 2004 study “the most accurate data available at this time” indicates that “nearly 9.6 percent of students are targets of educator sexual misconduct sometime during their school career.”

“Educator sexual misconduct is woefully under-studied,” writes the researcher. “We have scant data on incidence and even less on descriptions of predators and targets. There are many questions that call for answers.“

In an article published on Monday, renowned Catholic commentator George Weigel referred to the Shakeshaft study, and observed that “The sexual and physical abuse of children and young people is a global plague” in which Catholic priests constitute only a small minority of perpetrators.

While Weigel observes that the findings of Shakeshaft’s study do nothing to mitigate the harm caused by priestly abuse, or excuse the “clericalism” and “fideism” that led bishops to ignore the problem, they do point to a gross imbalance in the level of scrutiny given to it, throwing suspicion on the motives of the news outlets that are pouring their resources into digging up decades-old dirt on the Church.

“The narrative that has been constructed is often less about the protection of the young (for whom the Catholic Church is, by empirical measure, the safest environment for young people in America today) than it is about taking the Church down," he writes..."
