In response to a confession. I have a similar issue with my inlaws' sect of Lutheranism. They basically worship Martin Luther and if they don't pay their tithe and become baptized into the Lutheran church, they think they won't go to heaven. I think it's sad that the higher-ups in the church have brainwashed them to that extent. The Bible says nothing about a required tithe to get into heaven. It's almost as bad as the Catholic church, but at least the pastors get to be married instead of being forced to be celibate.

If one is sexually (or otherwise) assaulted, one should come forward immediately. Not doing so damages credibility quite a bit. This goes for adults, of course. Coming forward years or even decades later, nobody should be surprised if they aren't believed.

In response to a confession. So what? Should they all just sit down and shut up? They get called out for that too. "why didn't they say something?" " why did they let them get away with it"? now they speak up and that is "out of hand"? I am sure the people who like to treat other people like some object they can hump, touch, or some how get off on, would agree. If they would all just shut up and let this happen, it would be so much easier to continue being an asshole.

I started a blog. Updated it like 5 times. I just realized 2 weeks got away from me and i haven't updated it at all. I've never been very consistent and lately it's gotten worse.

In response to a confession. I am not even Catholic, but I don't think it's fair to say that all Catholic priests are bad. I think that's like saying all Boy Scout leaders are bad. I know a lot of people who have had nothing but good experiences in the Catholic church. I'm not saying there haven't been issues, but I think there are more good people involved with the Catholic church than bad people.

In response to a confession. It's not a bandwagon. It's just that more people feel comfortable now coming forward. They didn't before because they were afraid of repercussions or not being believed. Now people are finally taking them seriously.

In response to a confession. Calling out sexual abuse is a bandwagon I'm willing to jump on. I don't think it's out of hand. You know what's out of hand? Sexual abuse.

Despite all the new lately of accusations and admittance of assult on women by men, I bugs me that in movies and TV, it is still acceptable for a woman to hit a man, I was just watching a show where the woman finds out her fiancé cheated on her, he admits it, and she cancels the wedding and says they are over and leaves, Great, I would too, Then she comes back and gives him this speech about how she will give him time to think about rebuilding the relationship and regaining her trust, He agrees to do so, She stands up to leave, and BAM smacks him in the face and walks out, I do not understand how this is still acceptable as entertainment. Nobody would read a script and say "yes, after they have a cold but civil conversation regarding their problems, I agree that it would be of great value to the moment if he slaps her in the face, he would totally look like a strong person, who doesn't take that kind of treatment: So why is it so acceptable in television and movies?

IMO this whole Hollywood sex abuse scandal is getting out of hand. Every day another actress is accusing another actor of it. I'm not saying it doesn't happen but seems like some type of bandwagon thing. Before it was bullying and now it's this.

When my niece was little, my sister's mil insisted that she get confirmed (?) in the Catholic Church. So, on communion day, there's all these little kids and the priest is up there, flapping his gums, and he says, "Do you obey God? Do obey your parents? Do you know who else you obey?" The kids just kind of looked at each other, and the priest said, "You obey ME, for no one else on earth is as close to God as a priest." Made my skin crawl. I made sure to pull my niece aside and tell her that she never, ever, ever had to do anything that man said. Ughhhhh. That was almost 20 years ago and it still makes me cringe. Also, sidenote, a priest and a bishop were busted for child molestation at this church, years later.
