Rush Limbaugh and Ashton Kutcher have their defenders, the archdiocese does not

GET OUT OF HELL FREE
Answered prayers: Well now, isn't this ruling convenient for the St. Louis Archdiocese and for predator priests ["Clergy Sex-Abuse Claim From Former St. Mary Magdalen Parishioner Denied on Appeal," Nicholas Phillips]?

It never ceases to amaze me how cruel Church officials and their lawyers can be. They use every tiny little technicality they can conjure up to not be held responsible, but mainly to keep themselves out of the courtroom and off that witness stand.

Like Paul Alvino says, he wanted to have his day in court so the full truth could be exposed about how the archdiocese covers up crimes against kids. Until the courts start allowing victims of child sex abuse to have their day in court, kids will never be safe. The truth needs to be exposed, and those who commit crimes against kids need to be held accountable. Not just pay out money — they need to be put in jail, like any other human being.

This is so sad for Paul Alvino and for victims of clergy abuse. We hope that he does not give up the fight.

Path to salvation: If the Church is honestly interested in eradicating its sordid history in these cases, it will waive any and all statute of limitation defenses that it may have.

EL RUSHBO'S ROAD TRIP
Rushing to help: A great effort to help Joplin stay in America's minds to enhance a complete rebuild/recovery from such an awesome demonstration of Mother Nature's destructive power ["Rush Limbaugh Pushing Tea in Joplin," Sarah Fenske]. Good choice made by a powerful individual who didn't have to do anything....
Roy, via the Internet

Tea for two: By doing what, giving them a bunch of tea? And then being all, "Oh, I'm not trying to outshine Joplin, just because I happen to be the most awesome, powerful man in America. This is about all of you!" Just give a speech of support, donate the tea silently and be done with it.
Kitty, via the Internet

American entrepreneurship: Where you see a devastated community, Rush sees a marketing opportunity to launch a new product! See? That's called taking a negative and turning it into positive cash flow! What's crass about that?

REAL MEN DON'T LIKE MATH
Dullsville: When I first came to St. Louis for college in the 1980s, I was quickly pointed to the RFT, where the truth be told and the story be uncovered — and it was always cutting edge, in my most humble Midwestern naive opinion ["Real Men Get Their Facts Straight," Martin Cizmar, Ellis Conklin and Kristen Hinman]. But over the years, I have seen the cover story, the centerpiece of the RFT (and the reason to open it up), go from "sharp like a tack" to "dull like the clearance rack."

Today when I read the daring exposé of how Demi and Ashton got their numbers wrong and how the media seized it, I saw a great example of how a newspaper can waste way too many pages just to miss a point. Comparing the number of arrests with the number of instances of a crime is nowhere near apples to apples, but to waste even more space finding other sourpusses that will fight over that 100,000 to 300,000 number is really missing the point.

The RFT has gone from "cutting edge" to "peeking over the hedge." In your choice to push all the other great stories aside to "uncover the big lie" makes the RFT look like you don't think there is any problem with child prostitution.

Congratulations for helping your readers stand up and say, "I mean, heck, if Ashton and Demi can't get their numbers right, they should just shut up, instead of sticking their neck out to publicly make an effort to bring attention to a flaw in our social fabric." Yeah, you are right: They should just go back to eating jelly beans on the beach. Thanks, RFT, for dissing the activists!
John Covelli, St. Louis

YES , WE CAN...YES , WE CAN...WE WILL WIN IN WAR ON TERROR (30 whities or what are terrorists will never come back alive...thank you lord....aaamen).

What do you mean tragedy! It was just a birthday present for planet apes president !!! That's all ! Feels great to flip hamburgers and hip hop atop of good news...makes you feel vibrant and energized !!!

ARIZONA = UTOYA = GOVERNMENT‘S "AFTERLIFE" CASH & $$ FLASH MOB (there was no shooting in Utoya or Arizona, but tear gas and theater instead on faces of multiculturalism maniacs..your guilt or blame and shame weapon against us and our families in our own countries atop of forceful unemployment during so called "ECONOMIC CRISES" during which third world foreigners are allowed to rape, kill, and still is nothing else but fast way to early retirements for government related criminals/ terrorists...$$$ extra bonuses, and newly issued state identities while calling you a terrorists) !!! http://stateofterror.blogspot.... or http://stateofterror.wordpress...

OBAMA = STALIN = BUSH or USA = SOVIET UNION http://avsecbostjan.blogspot.c... or http://avsecbostjan.wordpress.... Whitie is fighting war on terrorism just to come home and be pronounced as terrorist...turned in Timothy, jobless, homeless ...YESSS, WE CAN...YESSS, WE CAN...GABBY OPENED HER EYES (Obaminator’s psychotic speech in Tucson = failed “Apocalypse Now“)

WAKE-UP !!! WAKE UP PEOPLE BEFORE IT GETS ALL TO LATE ON PLANET APES !!! TEARS WON'T DO YOU ANY GOOD !!! AS BUSH STATED "THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE PAID FOR"(to die ) !!

EVEN IF IRAQ WOULD HAVE BEEN WAR FOR OIL ONLY, VETERANS WOULDN'T NEVER EVER HAVE TO BE HOMELESS PEOPLE THE WAY THEY ARE AND NOR WOULD OUR PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE ALLOVER THE PLACE THE WAY THEY DO TO VERY TODAY(never ending “war on terror” story). BECAUSE EVEN IF WAR WAS FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY, MONEY SHOULD BE USED FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS AND NOT WHAT THE CASE IS OR AGAINST WHITES(to destroy us allover the world) !!! You don't really proof for 911, just put your sht together in your heads...THIS IS PLENTY ENOUGH TO HAVE O(B)SAMA INDICTED FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE AMERICAN HUMANITY TOGETHER WITH HIS ZIONIST MASTERS) !!!

Don't worry O(s)bama, you have just saved USA what is lots of Dollars in your DEBT DEALS as those best of America or Navy Seals would also grew older and then you already know how it goes...DEAD & ILL = DEBT DEAL !!!

HOW MUCH FURTHER ARE WE WILLING TO GO IN ORDER TO PLEASE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO DENY US EVEN THE RIGHT TO EXISTENCE(what is to you country without laws or lawless country in respect to your personal rights, but the one that in contrast to your denied basic human rights recognizes you extremely liable when payments are due) !!?

IS IT INDEPENDENCE THAT WE CELEBRATE OR DEPENDENCE (what are your credit card bills or alimony saying about it) !!? HOW IS YOUR DIABETES AND LOST MARRIAGES !!? FORECLOSURES AND JOB SEARCH !!? THAT IS THE QUESTION TO BE OR NOT TO BE !!! IS IT LAND OF THE FREE OR STATE OF TERROR AGAINST OWN POPULATION !!? IT IS TIME TO LET THEM KNOW WHAT COLOR ARE THE STRIPES ON OUR STAR SPANGLED BANNER !!! TIME TO DETERMINE WHOSE INDEPENDENCE/AMERICA, WE CELEBRATE TODAY(who wants to erase us and denies us the right to exist) !!! IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHOM WE ADDRESS WITH "PRESIDENT" (STOP HUMILIATING YOURSELF) !!!

VOTING POLL:

DO WE NEED MORE PROOFS TO INDICT OBAMA AND BUSH ADMINISTRATION FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY !!?

1)NO, THEY ARE CLEARLY GUILTY AS OIL WAR NEVER EVER WAS REAL ISSUE IN GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITES. REAL ISSUE ARE FACTS OR WHAT WE WITNESS TODAY WHEN VETERANS ARE HOMELESS, JOBLESS, KILLED, ETC.

2)NO, AS 911 ALONE AS WELL AS ACTIONS IMPOSED AGAINST WHITES IN USA (as well worldwide) ARE CLEARLY INDICATING ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY

3)YESS AS JUST YESTERDAY(for over 15 years to very yesterday), WE (news/media = vacuum world of lies) WERE TELLING YOU THAT UNEMPLOYMENT WAS AT 10% WHILE TODAY ONE IS AT 50% (HOW COME NO ONE QUESTION JOURNALISM LIKE THIS OR WHAT IS WORLD OF LIES AND DEMENTIA)!

4)I AGREE WITH FIRST TWO ANSWERS ABOVE. IT IS TIME TO PRESS CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST BOTH ADMINISTRATIONS DUE TO ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY FOR THE SAKE(SAFETY) OF US AND OUR CHILDREN(DO NOT TURN THEM IN WHITE REFUGEES ON PLANET APES OR WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE WHEN VISITING ABOVE PAGES) !!!

Maserati are you kidding?? So you think its the priest not being able to marry that has lead to pedophiles in the church??? lol. How about pediphiles are attracted to this line of work because they can more easily hush up the victims?? Homosexuals are just that and being a priest doesn't make them homosexual either. I totally believe that preists should have wives, how can they speak to relationship, temptation prior to marriage and how to raise a family without one. I so like my pastor Darrin Patrick, he is human and fights sin himself and does not act like he has no sin. Priests put on that costume and do the service as if they don't ever sin. That is the lie, none of us are perfect. I lived in the world of being Catholic and it only bound me to unchristian life, why should I try, I can't do the perfect stuff so God will never love me...why try. It wasn't until I tried another church that I found despite my transgressions God loves me and wants me to love him. I didn't need to be perfect. I didn't need to do good works to win his approval. God loves me where I am, that makes my heart open, it makes me see someone elses pain, it opens me up to select to help another not because I have to do this to go to heaven but because its the right thing to do.

All media tell lies...don't believe for one minute that RFT is any different. All media make their own truth and have their own agenda. This one does more often support the disinfranchized but believe me...most of the people featured have made their own beds to sleep in. Stories of "good herion" addicts that are now victims because a partner died of a drug overdose while they supplied the drugs is not an innocent person. There are a realm of support for those who don't think they have to play by the same rules as the rest of us do. This rag supports that they are sin free, NOT. This rag just like all ther rest has an agenda.

“Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops, like bishops, and your religious act like religious.”----Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen,before the Knights of Columbus, June 1972

To respond to the comments of Mr. Covelli, I believe this change was facilitated by the sale of the RFT and the loss of Hartmann as publisher.

Please make plain you are talking about the Catholic church. "The Church" is the body of Christ, the body of true beleivers, none of whom are child abusers.

In a "fair" world the press would also go after Predator Rabbis and Predator Ministers. As is it now we're only exposing a 1/3 of the abuse from clergy. But then again we'd have cries of the holocaust and the crusades if the latter were to happen. Oy Vey!

As I understand, the Catholic church did allow marriages up until the sixteenth century, when the church no longer wanted to take financial responsibility for survivors of Priest's families and wanted all the wealth for themselves. It's unnatural for any human to be denied marraige and sex, It breeds a cult of homosexuality and pedophilia. Let the Priests get married and have families. Stop the cult of indecency.

THANK YOU JOHN CAVELLI~!!!.... Whoever writes these articles reminds me of a child in an adults body that refuses to admit they are wrong and everytime they open their mouth they get a little smaller.. but they arrogantly and obnoxiously keep running their mouth. If people at RFT are really in agreement with this article, wouldn't you like to see what is in their computer history. As if sexual abuse and degradation isn't a problem in the world today. Sad RFT can't be more of a positive influence. Instead, where sex is concerned they seem determined to promote and defend what is wrong in this world... another example.... all the press for the chick Holiday with all the wierd sex / sex column etc. So many people have been sexually abused and exploited these days I'm sure there are some that work at RFT and are either too defensive to admit their beliefs have been warped by what happened to them or they are silently cringing and hurt by articles like this. Sexual abuse and child abuse is a HUGE problem and getting worse. Thank you DEMI and ASHTON for all that you are doing to try to get something done about it.

I don't know where you're getting your information, but reforms were made as early as the Council of Nicea to take marriage out of the priesthood.

It's also unnatural to use condoms or birth control, yet...people still do it (even though people disagree with it sometimes). People drive cars and ride bikes. Those are unnatural too--there are no car trees. Humans do a lot of unnatural things, Maserati. Just because something is unnatural, it doesn't mean that people shouldn't and don't do it.

Catholic priests willingly deny THEMSELVES marriage to further devote themselves to their cause. True, unfortunately some priests do fall into the homosexual pedophilia trap, However, there are many, many, many good, decent, loving priests who do not. Please don't slaughter their reputation.
