Question by Ed: Is the Church due the same forgiveness that God would supposedly afford to individuals?
Specifically, if the Catholic Church repented of its “sin” of covering up the problems with pedophile priests and just moving them to other locations to continue their offenses against other children, should it be forgiven? What sort of penance is due from the Church for its misdeeds? Should there be forgiveness in this example? And, I am not talking about civil or criminal liability, here (the Catholic Church cannot avoid that). I am talking about spiritual liability.
What is the appropriate response from its constituency that supports it?
Answer by soul on fire
false church the fake who lead others a stray but has works which Jesus said I deni you
