 Dr. Razu writes to the Nagaland Post page 6 on post mortem saying that the Catholic are having sexual abuse, murder, hidden agendas, magic wand glory to shall call themselves as bishop, priest, unlimited power no use of contraception, but pope Catholicism does not permit all it is the human sinful behaviour and just do violence sinful in every society and every denomination. “Now, we are going to buoyance law”. “The buoyance law” (how a boat floats) according to your write up, your objection on Catholicism have been serially numbered. Please explain the point with facts and figures. 1. The Catholicism has hidden agenda. 2. Catholicism uses magic wand. 3. Catholic is on the decrease. 4. Pope has nothing to do except to beg for forgiveness. 5. Enough is enough, not to be fool us by the Catholicism. 6. Institutionalize faith. 7. Catholic is shattering. 8. Sex scandal among the clergy. 9 Protestant churches are having link which the Catholic for unlimited power faith in individual. 10. Catholicism is responsible for increasing. This is worth reading.

The Catholic church: Excerpts of an article written by non-Catholic Sam Miller, a prominent Cleveland Jewish businessman. “Why would newspapers carry on a vendetta on one of the most important institutions that we have today in the United States, namely the Catholic church?

Do you know- the Catholic church educates 2.6 million students everyday at the cost to the church of 10 billion dollars and a savings on the other hand to the American taxpayer of 18 billion dollars. The graduates go on the graduate studies at the rate of 92%.

The church has 230 colleges and universities in the US with an enrolment of 700,000 students. The Catholic church has a non-profit hospital system of 637 hospitals, which account for hospital treatment of 1 our of every 5 people-not just Catholics- in the United States today. 

But the press is vindictive and trying to totally denigrate in every way the Catholic church in this country. They have blamed the disease of paedophilia on the Catholic church, which is as irresponsible as blaming adultery on the institution of marriage. 

Let me give you some figures that Catholics should know and remember. For example, 12% of the 300 protestant clergy surveyed admitted to sexual intercourse with a parishioner, 38% acknowledged other inappropriate sexual contact in a study by the United Methodist Church, 41.8% of clergy women reported unwanted sexual behaviour, 17% of laywoman have been sexually harassed. Meanwhile, 1.7% of Catholic clergy has been found guilty of paedophilia. This is not a Catholic problem. 

A study of American priests showed that most are happy in the priesthood and find it even better than they had expected and that most, if given the choice, would choose to be priests again in face of all this obnoxious PR the church has been receiving. 

The Catholic church is bleeding from self-inflicted wounds. The agony that Catholics have felt and suffered is not necessarily the fault of the church. You have been hurt by a small number of wayward priests that have probably been totally weeded out by now and a new number of bishops who failed to act.

Walk with your shoulders high and your head higher. Be a proud member of the most important non-government agency in the United States. 

Then remember what Jeremiah said, “stand by the roads, and look and ask for the ancient paths, where good way is and walk in it, and find rest for your souls”. Be proud to speak up for your faith with pride and reverence and learn what your church does for all other religions. Be proud that you’re a Catholic”. Please pass this on to every Catholic on your e-mail list.
