blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Father Pansa Pansza?

Father Pansa Pansza?

It looks like a priest from Wichita Falls has been removed of his duties after a possible sexual offense in the 1970s. He apparently served in Bridgeport and Decatur based upon a Fox 4 News report tonight. (The Star Telegram has the story here. It reads: "He has served as pastor at St. John the Baptizer church in Bridgeport, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary church in Decatur and St. Mary church in Jacksboro.")

organized religion keeps child molesters gainfully employed.

I think the worst scenario for this kind of thing is in the home. Much of it is never reported and the consequences of it last a lifetime for the victims.

Roman Catholic Canon Law is responsible for EVERY act of molestation perpetrated by ANY priest or bishop. The Catholic Church has for the past 1200 years ACTIVELY recruited sexual deviants to become priests.

It IS sexually deviant for a HEALTHY YOUNG male to NEVER engage in sex and remain celibate for the entirety of his life.

mzchief, are you saying Pope John-Paul was a sexual deviant? It's a pretty broad brush you wield with your sweeping statement. And let me suggest there are just a few deviants of various sexual persuasions who populate the Protestant church as well.

So right 8:12 - and child molesters infiltrate our schools too.

It's not right to just pick on churches.

These perverts get into situations that give them access to children.

Uh oh, let's just talk about the blog post, and not get into another mzchief vomitfest (this doesn't mean I agree with her, by the way--I'm just tired of the vomitfests that often open up involving her).

Please be careful throwing stones. This may be a situation of young adult hormones in action before Fr. Gil was a priest - not a priest luring young boys to the rectory.

Though I COMPLETELY agree with YOUR request to NOT have the comments escalate to a "vomitfest" YOU should make note that YOUR entire comment and purpose for commenting was dedicated to MZCHIEF.

NOWHERE in MY comment did I indicate that the Roman Catholic Church is the ONLY organization with sexual predators as members.

As for whether or not Pope John Paul II was a sexual deviant, I have NO idea if he had ever engaged in sex or deviant sexual acts.


Biologically speaking, it is the sole purpose of EVERY healthy, genetically viable member of ANY species to reproduce. For ANY healthy, genetically viable member to INTENTIONALLY refrain from reproducing is a DEVIATION of what is NORMAL. Thus, it is WITHOUT question a deviation of NORMAL human sexual behaviour for a YOUNG HEALTHY human to ELECT to FOREVER remain celibate.

Incidentally, the Roman Catholic Church is sooooo unsure of the decision to REQUIRE clerics to practice the "discipline of celibacy" the Catholic Church did NOT make it a doctrine (infallible divine teaching) of the Roman Catholic Church.

Keep in mind, St. Peter, the FIRST Pope was married.

One MORE thing

NOT ALL sexual deviants are sexual predators!

I read the article on this and am amazed how certain religions feel that their system of rules are above the laws of our state and country! This should have been reported to the authorities when he admitted to it years ago! The really sad thing about it is that I really feel the Catholic church thinks they are above the law; not that this was just a cover up.

It's against biology and nature to expect anyone to be celibate for life. What do people expect? This is something that the Catholic Church needs to seriously consider changing.

I attend the Catholic church in Bridgeport and was shocked when I heard the news. I know everyone will have different opinions on this story so I am not looking to defend the church or exchange words to try and change someone's mind.

I just hope and pray that this is a case where a man who made a big mistake in the past sought to correct the past mistake in his life by turning his life over to Christ. The story said this happened 30 years ago and not recently that we know of. So until any other evidence surfaces to tell me otherwise, I will believe that he decided to be a servant of the Lord in hopes of vanquishing an ugly past.

As you post hateful or derogatory comments think how you might look if some of your past skeletons went from hiding in the closet to being in the public spotlight.

Peace be with you all

A little background information....This man was married for about 20 years until his wife died. He then became ordained about 30 years after this incident happened. So....knowitall mzchief...he wasn't celibate his whole life.

Please NOTE the word "YOUNG" in MY comments.

You're Welcome!

Incidentally, I am fairly CERTAIN most NORMAL men would consider it UNNATURAL to VOLUNTARILY give up EVER having sex for the REST of EVER.

"A little background information....This man was married for about 20 years until his wife died. He then became ordained about 30 years after this incident happened. So....knowitall mzchief...he wasn't celibate his whole life."

Auctually this is partially correct. He was married for just a few short years and divorced his wife (it was a "topic of conversation" when he started at the church - him being a divorced Priest.

Also - to clarify - this happened when he was in his 20's - WAY before he became a priest. He worked for years as (I think) a labor organizer in San Antonio. He didn't become a priest until later in life - close to 50.

By reading the article - it states that he made this known to the Bishop (he didn't hide it from them) and the Bishop (at the time - he has since died) met w/several people and they decided since it happend so far in the past they would go ahead and let him become a priest. MY concern is he was ordained during the hight of the Priest scandel - they should have never ordained him - or at least should have never allowed him to be a parish priest.

And Mzchief - the Catholic church has NOT "actively recruited" sexual deviants to become priests - that is just a bold face lie. Regardless of the reasons the men CHOOSE to be celibate when they become priests - just like many other people in society - this doesn't make them deviants.

I choose not to be celibate. That's why I am not married.

I think that liberally lean aka BARRY should come up with a complimentary reading comprehension class for all anonymous dumbasses.

NOT HAVING SEX IS DEVIANT SEXUAL BEHAVIOR, BITCHES.

6:52 & anonymouse: AMEN!

As I continue to pray for Father Gil I will also pray for mzchief. Judgment is only to be passed by one person in this life. As the Catholic Church is the oldest church in existence we are bound to have a few things that require alot of praying. But fortunately for us Bishop Vann of the Fort Worth Diocese has a not tolerance policy along with the rest of the Diocese. That allows our children to be safe at church. Bless you all this Christmas season!

The Church is full of human elements. Therefore, mistakes and poor judgments do occur. I am glad the abuse was brought out to the light in order to prevent this from happening again. Any abuse is never justified, and it is morally wrong. We all need to build up the Church and love her, not to tear her apart. After all mistakes and unfortunate things do happen in other religions and institutions.

I am so sorry to hear such critical comments about the Roman Catholic Church. However, the frustration and anger by some at all the media reports and hype about sexual misconduct by people we trust is understandable.

Something that has not been mentioned is the number of removals by Child Protective Service in Wise County while Father Gil was ministering there...the monthly average of removals of infants through adolescents was alarming. It was NOT Father Gil who was abusing those children. Who do you think it was?

Please continue to keep Father Gil, all Ministers, and the people we trust with our children in prayer. Let's also pray for each other and for our children.
