Too much heaven on their minds

New York Times – A day after agreeing to a record-breaking $660 million settlement with 508 people who said they were sexually abused by clergy members in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Cardinal Roger Mahony apologized this afternoon for “this horrible sin and crime” and said he hoped the settlement would bring a “final resolution.”

ang daming pera ng simbahan ano? kaya nilang magbayad ng 660 million dollars para pangsuhol sa mga na abuse ng mga pari sa los angeles. ang average na take ng bawat abused person ay 1.3 million dollars. equivalent ito sa 58 million pesoses gamit ang current exchange rate. sapat na pera ito para makabili ng lifetime supply na gamot sa almoranas. actually, marami akong mga kakilalang tao sa bayan namin sa talipapa, na magpapa abuse sa pari para makakuha ng ganyan kalaking halaga.

‘kinanginangyan. praise god, talaga.

  1. i was thinking the same thing; parang with the amount of money they rake in, they can afford to make this settlement and just pay out. never mind the scandal it entails, may ‘absolution’ naman.

  2. they should know better than to say that it would bring “final resolution”. they are just sweeping it under the carpet. i have a feeling that more cases go unreported, specially sa pinas.

  3. naisip ko nga na yung payout ay hindi final resolution. you get the money but you live with the emotional scars. you live it in style that’s true but it’s not a happy ending.

  4. and guess who’s raking in the dough…those damn lawyers! mas malaki ang take nila kesa sa mga na-abuse. we’re standing-by dito sa san diego. we’re next.

  5. you will never hear cases of men being raped dito sa atin sa pinas, or at least not this time yet. it would seem to be an outright suicide for the “Machismo Filipino” to cry rape, especially against priests or the religious clergy…

  6. eto yung gustong sabihin sa atin ng pambansang bayani, sad to say, yung Pinuno ng Alma MAter natin…pera pera na rin ang takbo ng utak….binabalewa ang mga magulang na nagbabayad ng tuition fee…PACKING SHEET….

  7. Kaya nakasulat sa bibliya…”Not all who calls me Father will enter the kingdom…” tsaka “..you will know them by their fruits..” In the final reckoning…it’s just between you & Him…regardless of your reputation or whatever impression others may have of you.
