Those priests put a whole new twist on the biblical phrase, "Turn the other cheek".

That's not even funny if that's your intention. Shameful, insensitive remark.

What's truly shameful and insensitive is the catholic church. They destroy lives by molesting children and ignore the families when they demand the church to take responsibility. They move these pedophiles from church to church and leave a path of destruction behind. What gives this criminally corrupt bunch of hypocritical pedophiles the right to voice their opinions on morality or other peoples sexuality. They should be prosecuted and persecuted beginning with the HNIC!!!
