      This Magic Circle?

      Also: the priests are the rapists, they need to go to jail. The bishops covered for them so they need to be tried under whatever conspiracy to subvert justice charge that is.

        No. Damian Thompson calls the inner circle of British Bishops that keep their buddies in power the "Magic Circle".

        If you get the Boston Globe, read the articles on kids of priests.

            As opposed to our local lefty broadsheet. At least the Globe leads with local news first.

            EDIT - but there is this:
            @JustinESports: Boston reporter: "Hello, I'm from the Globe."

                A very cool charity I've participated many times...is Feed my starving children. While national, their main focus is working through the Midwest. They bring in volunteers to pack food which is funded by sponsors and sent to challenged areas. A lot of their work is in Africa - they've packed 223 million meals for 30 countries in Africa alone. They've aided during natural disasters in emergency relief.

                https://www.fmsc.org/

                What makes them especially cool is accessibility. They're open 6 days a week...and you can wander in during operation hours and just participate for free. If strictly negative people actually got out and took advantage of opportunities like this...imagine what kind of world we'd have.

                  Also known as Christian Reconstructionism, it cuts across denominational lines but does not represent mainstream American Christianity. Many Christians even see it as a heresy and perversion of the gospels.
                  When will the "moderate majority" of Christians loudly and publicly denounce these radicals?

                    They frequently do but aren't heard. In the mold of Jesus, Christians are frequently constructive and not particularly great news. Look at the only religious 'news' posted here for example - unrepresentative one-off examples of extreme behavior.

                    Related: here's an article on what religious leaders have said about recent events. As everyone knows there are conservative extremists in the Christian movement as there is in every corner of life. But outside of folks like Falwell and Graham, most of what's said is as it should be - critical of all racism and bigotry.

                      christians are easy to pick on, that's why.

                        Interesting. So when will right-wing Christians acknowledge that the "moderate majority" of Muslims do the same with their radicals, and allow them to be held to that equal standard, then?
