In a stunning find by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, hundreds of Catholic priests and clergy members have sexually abused more than one thousand child victims and possibly many more since the 1940's. Senior church officials, including a man who is now the archbishop of Washington, D.C., allegedly covered up the abuse, according to the states attorney general.

The Catholic Church, which is known, and highly criticized for thousands of sexual abuse allegations is not a stranger to the world of pedophilia. State-ordered investigations documented "tens of thousands of children from the 1940's to the 1990's" who suffered abuse at the hands of priests, nuns and church administration. This is shocking and terrifying considering the Church is one of the oldest religious institutions in history.

The obvious must be stated; the Catholic Church is not a safe environment for children. Even worse is the fact that many of the cases in Pennsylvania, and throughout the world, are products of systematic cover-up.

The investigation confirmed a "systematic cover-up by senior church officials in Pennsylvania and at the Vatican." The report itself provided scant detail about the Vatican's role beyond describing a series of confidential reports that bishops made to the Vatican about abusive priests.
How disturbing has this world become when innocent children can no longer be left alone and trusted with church officials?

The Catholic Church needs to perform a hard review of these cases and many other practices such as idol worship. Where is the distinction between Godly principles and the traditions of men? The word church no longer holds the same value and Godly meaning in this day and age. Isaiah 5:20 says, "woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!".

This is the world we live in now, and it more important than ever to use proper discernment when considering who and what is good in the eyes of God.

Please love each other with the love of the Lord.

During a recent TEDx seminar, a speaker named Mirjam Heine, promoted the idea of pedophilia as a natural sexual orientation. During the 13 minute seminar, the woman argued that pedophilia should be accepted and normalized in the same way that heterosexuality is accepted by society.

In the recorded video that was released to the public, and later removed from YouTube, Heine used a story about Jonas, a pedophile that she encountered who was only attracted to female children between the ages of six and 12. Her intention was to draw a distinction between those who abuse children sexually and pedophiles who don't abuse kids. Some would argue that pedosexual relationships are indeed a form of child abuse.

Since time began, children have not been capable of making this level of sexual distinction on their own. Children should be allowed to play, learn and grow without being taken advantage of before they become mature enough to understand the consequences involved with pedophilia. In fact, children should not be involved with sexual activities in the first place.

It is sad how this world leans so heavily on an individuals choice in sexuality instead of trusting God's intention for life. When our creator and Lord God designed us, he gave us distinct biology that is to be used not only for pleasure, but for pro-creation so that life could continue. His plan is special and perfect, yet the entertainment industry pushes a convincing agenda that has no regard for God's plan whatsoever. In the eyes of many people, sex has become more about personal pleasure and less about families or children.

In light of this information, and repeated attempts by companies such as Netflix and HBO to portray homosexuality and pedophilia as something that should be normalized and accepted, I would like to emphasize that the second coming of Jesus Christ is right around the corner and we should be watching and patiently waiting for His return. This world needs Jesus more than ever before.
