my mistakes, sexual harassment & birthday greetings
.....sometimes i do things without thinking about it first and then the next thing i know.....im already running on autopilot.....gosh! when will i learn? when! :( well as i always say, i deserve what i am experiencing right now....im not saying that i am being punished i just think that this is the result of my previous mistakes... i did serious things that changed the things that i am used to.... its okay.... i dont have any choice... i just have to wait and let the storm pass.....
its already 3:00 in the morning and i am not yet finished with my "sexual Harassment" report in Catholic Worship. its not that i'm having a hard time finishing it, its just that i am kinda intrigued by the articles that i am reading right now.
"34 Catholic priests have been suspended for sexual misconduct. The bad news is that there are scores, possibly hundreds, of others on whose heads the axe will fall. And the worst news is that there may be many who are getting away with just the mildest of reprimands from their superiors."
huwaaat?!? i didnt know that! well i guess its really hard for some these priests to resist temptation. these are just based on written cases...what about those who were not caught? who were still on the path to wrong doings? i did not write about this because i am condoning these priests... its just that its human nature to *you know?* not that they are actually performing these particular acts... keeping the vow of celibacy is kind of hard...well not really coz it did happen to me... i was celibate for quite some time...heheh
"priests who father a child or break their vow of celibacy may have to undergo some form of religious "rehabilitation."
just some form of religious rehabilitation? i think they should also go back to thier seminaries to re learn all thier vows and educate themselves on what and what they should not do. after all, they are priests! but then they are also humans.... i dont think they deserve to be punished (unless they raped somebody or something like that...) they only have to feel that these vows that they took are really important and they should set good examples to those who look up to them and who would want to be like them in the future.
