    I have the same feelings about the Catholic Church and boy scouts
    Seems 10's of thousands of victims of sexual abuse at the hands of priests and Boy Scout leaders so why not just shut them down and eliminate the threat

    From my perspective, some important questions are: 1) how (and how easily) is COVID-19 transmitted to others; 2) how many people are infected with the disease in a given period; 3) what % of people affected by the disease die. While thus far the mortality rate of COVID-19 is significantly higher than that of the flu, at this point the reported number of people infected and associated deaths is thankfully far lower. Obviously much remains unknown about COVID-19 and the numbers could change. Hopefully doctors, scientists, investigators & researchers will be able to isolate the cause and come up with an effective treatment soon.

    In the interim, in order to help stop the possible spread of ANY disease, we should immediately prohibit door-to-door traveling rats, er, solicitors.

    If you don't want to catch the mutated animal flu's, Corona viruses or Ebola make sure your Selenium level is sufficient.

    This is a quote from a medical paper.

    " The only people that can be infected by the 2019-n Coronavirus have less than 98.7 µg/L of Selenium in plasma or serum. Those who have enough Selenium are immune to this and all other enveloped viruses. Selenium can be obtained from Brazil nuts, Selenium pills or Astragalus tea."

    You can also get sufficient levels by consuming vegetables that have been grown in soil. Hydroponically grown vegetables do not have this trace mineral.

    These type of viruses are common in livestock. I've worked with livestock my entire life. That may be one of the reasons I never get the flu. I caught all that stuff and built a resistance to it when I was young.

    This is Barney,

    I think the Chineese personages are Asians and they have had greatest opportunity to study the virus very carefully. Here is the latest images of corono thing from the China...

    Tens of thousands? Please site your source. I won't discount the seriousness of these abuses. I'm a proud Catholic (and sinner), fortunately educated by the Nuns and Jesuits. Two Jesuit priests, who were on the faculty of Loyola High School when I attended, were accused of abuse. Two out of a Jesuit population of approximately fifty. I am not certain of the outcome of either case and I don't want to speculate. I blame the individual, not the Church. Individuals did the crime and participated in the cover ups. I think that the Church should not allow any homosexuals in the Priesthood. The overwhelming number of abuses have been by males on males. I am ashamed to estimate that maybe 1/3 of the Priests 50 years ago were homosexuals, although only a few abused children. These cases are outrageous, Priests were not properly held accountable and imprisoned. Widespread cover ups and transfers are inexcusable. The stain on the Catholic Church will last for centuries. But the Catholic Church is a holy institution. Don't blame it, blame the people. By eliminating homosexuals, you eliminate the threat.

    I cant recall every article related to this topic that Ive read for the past 40 years.
    news stories, law suit stories, etc...

    but it seems some cases of priests abusing children were handled by the church simply moving the priest out of that area and into another area where he was not known.

    saying the church should not be held accountable for these type of actions, sorry, they are totally responsible when they knowingly move a priest to another area and don't send him for help, or contact the police, or throw him out of the church.

    I will not research the 100s of things Ive read or seen on news stations, if you choose to ignore them, that's ok with me.

    I wonder how much money the church was/is willing to pay out in law suits over the past years and years to come so to avoid any more publicity.

    boyscouts are looking to file bankruptcy.

    btw, Im not as forgiving as you, 2 out of 50, the number should be zero, if one of those children were mine and abused by an adult who was in charge of them during the day, Id handle it my own way, and I wont say anything that might make me look evil.but there would be no pity.

    but let me ask you, if you had a child in any school, catholic, jewish, private, public, if you found out your child was being sexually abused, you would only go after the teacher? you wouldn't feel that school should be held responsible also since they are in control of who they hire and the care of your children?

    So we should shut the doors of all Catholic Churches? Is that what you are saying? I made no excuses for the crimes or transfers. Two out of fifty is two too many. I agree. You want to execute the guilty? Fine. How do you punish an institution?

    institutions who harbor known child abusers and aren't transparent about it I have a big problem with.
    changes need to be made and it has to be shown that changes are made, not all in secrecy and someones word on it is not good enough.
    Open the books, open the files, expose every complaint, every person, show the communities you are just as upset as they are. Put the abusers in programs, prison, anywhere but back on the block somewhere else.
    do not let them retire without facing the music.
    hold the institution totally responsible for its choices, then maybe it will change.

    Im sorry I posted how I feel on the subject, didn't mean to offend anyone. Predators and anyone or anything that shelters them knowing what they have done just really pisses me off

    Killing a child abuser is one thing worth going to prison for.

    you cant punish an institution, if they continue the same path they must be shut down as to now allow it to happen anymore. do I want to execute child abusers? yeah,not a real problem with that

    if shutting the doors is the only way to know for sure that an institution is doing everything they can to protect the children, then I don't see any other solution.
    again, Im sorry, I know this is a touchy subject

    my son was a typical kid growing up. spoiled, maybe not sure what spoiled is today, but he worked as a teen and thru college.
    anyway, when he was in elementary school him and his friends used to play some kind of crash game on their bikes. They would ride them head on and then jump off and let the bikes crash.
    one day, we get a call, the school, can we come in , that day, I was called at work, I left work, my wife left work, we thought oh boy, what the fuck happened.
    We were brought in and questioned because of all the bruising on my sons knees and legs. These kids were black and blue and everytime we asked him, hed say, yeah, me and (((((((( were playing crash and I hit my knee.
    its that's simple, an institution notices something, they act on it. I think back then I told my kid if he plays that stupid game again, Ill take his bike away until his is 50.
    It was embarrassing, humiliating, the principal, teachers, school nurse, and many more, but we were ok with it knowing they were looking out for my sons well being.
