Question by Aniruddha K: After record lawsuit settlement in the US, church sexual abuse scandals are emerging from Europe? Any hopes?
The Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph this week agreed to pay an Independence man $ 225,000, its biggest settlement ever in a case of alleged priest sexual abuse.
The Diocese of San Diego and the Diocese of San Bernardino, which broke off from its southern neighbor in 1978, agreed Sept. 7 to pay $ 198.1 million to settle lawsuits with 144 victims of sexual abuse by priests between 1938 and 1993.
In July 2007 Los Angeles archdiocese agrees to pay $ 660 million to 508 victims in what is by far the largest Catholic settlement of its kind
During the pope’s trip to Austria when it was still reeling from a sex abuse scandal that caused the resignations of Vienna’s archbishop in 1995 and the closure of a seminary near Vienna in 2004, after some 40,000 pornographic photographs were discovered on computers there.
Are these the values we aim to give our children and what sort of citizens can we expect them to be? Do we have to succumb to this organised ring of abuse?
Answer by FRAGINAL-NOYPI The grant of compensation for sexual lawsuits against priests will open floodgates of many cases against priests even when not supported with evidence but only to harass the Church to pay to eliminate bad publicity.

Though some think the emerging church movement is a passing fad that consists primarily of dissatisfied, unfulfilled young people, it is actually a rapidly growing new Christianity that continues to build momentum. In this talk, Ray Yungen unmasks the spirituality behind this movement its roots and its teachings. He explains the role that various popular figures have played in bringing about a spirituality that has direct ties to the New Age movement. It is essential that every believer know what the emerging church is all about and how this new spirituality is replacing the biblical Gospel of Jesus Christ with a mystical universalistic gospel that undermines the Cross and the foundations of true Christianity. 35 minutes DVD

Feel caught between the traditional church and the emerging church? Discover a third way: deep church.
C. S. Lewis used the phrase “deep church” to describe the body of believers committed to mere Christianity. Unfortunately church in our postmodern era has been marked by a certain shallowness. Emerging authors, fed up with contemporary pragmatism, have offered alternative visions for twenty-first-century Christianity. Traditionalist churches have reacted negatively, at times defensively.
Jim Belcher knows what it’s like to be part of both of these worlds. In the 1990s he was among the pioneers of what was then called Gen X ministry, hanging out with creative innovators like Rob Bell, Mark Oestreicher and Mark Driscoll. But he also has maintained ties to traditionalist circles, planting a church in the Presbyterian Church of America.
In Deep Church, Belcher brings the best insights of all sides to forge a third way between emerging and traditional. In a fair and evenhanded way, Belcher explores the proposals of such emerging church leaders as Tony Jones, Brian McLaren and Doug Pagitt. He offers measured appreciation and affirmation as well as balanced critique. Moving beyond reaction, Belcher provides constructive models from his own church planting experience and paints a picture of what this alternate, deep church looks like–a missional church committed to both tradition and culture, valuing innovation in worship, arts and community but also creeds and confessions.
If you’ve felt stuck between two extremes, you can find a home here. Plumb the depths of Christianity in a way that neither rejects our postmodern context nor capitulates to it. Instead of veering to the left or the right, go between the extremes–and go deep.
