Catholics priests should be held to the full extent of the law. However, it is not right to hold them up as the face of Christianity as they hold the word of the Pope and church history, above the teachings of the Bible.
This is simply ridiculous to say the very least. No, the Bible does not permit such actions. How can any human with a brain claim that the Bible says this is OK? Such a person must provide a verse from the Bible in order to validate the veracity of their claims, otherwise it can be simply dismissed as a Proof by Assertion Fallacy.
Historically,during medieval age time,child marriage are being permit throughout european states. As long as girls begin puberty,they are often be betrothed or sold to slavery.Isn't this akin to islam now aday ?
So christian does condone pedophile as islam do. There are also no statutory rape law exist in british empire as also in other european colonies.Pedophile could literally rape children without facing penalties.
@Ghostrecon I am unaware of which announcement you are referring to.
"The roman catholic church promulgated 1917..."
First off its the Roman Catholics; Catholicism has more in common with Hinduism than it does Christianity. (They take Biblical names and over lay them onto the Hindu gods. Drawing from Babylonian worship of Semiramis "Queen of Heaven" and Tammuz) Back in the dark ages, the average life expectancy was around 31.3 years, if you scale that with modern life spans of 70+ and the average age of conception today (Using today's morals to judge the acceptable maturing time of a female), 14 years old is not unfounded to begin procreation. Logistics aside, Catholic priests who take alter boys and have their way with them should be held up to biblical standards (Luke 17:2) The Bible, that Christians use does not condone the actions of theses priests, nor does it condone penance, or Mary worship, or even acknowledge the Popes right to rewrite it or forgive sins.
"Roman catholic pope are merely perverts people.They should be incarcerated for life.Don't let them walk away easily and abuse children !!!!!" -- To this I agree
"Does christians and bibilical interpretation approve pedophilia ?"-- To this I say no, it does not.
I'm not up on colonial American history, but one might ask why they did not have a law about abusing animals back than either. It may have been common practice not to abuse children and there was not enough cases of abuse to take notice and create a law governing against it.
