Pope says about two percent of priests are pedophiles:
"Many of my collaborators who fight with me (against paedophilia) reassure me with reliable statistics that say that the level of paedophilia in the Church is at about two percent,"Francis was quoted as saying.
"This data should hearten me but I have to tell you that it does not hearten me at all. In fact, I think that it is very grave," he was quoted as saying.
The pope was quoted as saying that, while most paedophilia took place in family situations, "even we have this leprosy in our house".
Join Ms. Mary & Dr. Janet to discuss how we can better train our children to recognize strange behavior in others. "Pedophiles can be anyone -- old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, non-professional or professional, and of any race. However, pedophiles often demonstrate similar characteristics, but these are merely indicators and it should not be assumed that individuals with these characteristics are pedophiles. But knowledge of these characteristics coupled with questionable behavior can be used as an alert that someone may be a pedophile." ~about.com
PimpPreacher.com - Today we will discuss how it seems that Pedophiles in the church seem to target young men. We will also discuss the Pope's comments about the huge amount of focus on gays. Are pedophiles gay men or have gay men simply been grouped with the pedophiles.
As a victim of child sexual abuse by both men and a woman, I can tell you I am sick and tired of the many excuses I have heard regarding “WHY” these perverts violate children. Here’s a prime example as to why I am so pissed off right now:
“We are not required to interfere with or inhibit our child’s sexuality.” An adult’s desire to have sex with children is “normative.” “Assuming children are unable to consent lends itself to criminalization and stigmatization.” A consensus belief by both speakers and pedophiles in attendance was that, because it vilifies MAPs, pedophilia should be removed as a mental disorder from the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), in the same manner homosexuality was removed in 1973. Dr. Fred Berlin acknowledged that it was political activism, similar to that witnessed at the conference, rather than scientific considerations that successfully led to the declassification of homosexuality as a mental disorder: The reason “homosexuality was taken out of DSM is that people didn’t want the government in the bedroom,” he said. The DSM ignores that pedophiles “have feelings of love and romance for children” in the same way adult heterosexuals and homosexuals have romantic feelings for one another. Tune in tonight to listen, or call in to share your stories. It’s time for us to call this what it is, ‘CHILD RAPE’.
A long overdue story to be told. It is time to get to the truth or try to sort through rampant allegations made to some of us who who dispute self appointed saviors who hijacked Irish and Native Boarding/Industrial/Residential school survivors.
Who are these people that self title and self appoint themselves? Is there a pedophile (s) that is amongst this group who dares to try and represent people that were harmed by pedophile clergy/priests?
A story that definitely needs to be told and then I will allow each of you to be the judge based on the information you will get from this episode.

Tonight's special guest is Zelda Hayes from Florida, survivor, author and Certified Life & Spiritual Coach. A survivor of rape and domestic violence, her ability to counsel others stems from overcoming her own experience. As Zelda says, "It is my desire to help you find the path of freedom regardless of your personal circumstance. From my experience I have learned that I am a co-creator and I have the power to determine what comes into my life. I want to share that lesson with you." Her new book, "Jezebels Last Dance; It's Every Woman's Story," tells the story of Zelda's life, a journey of tragedy to triumph where she learned to live again. Because we are all unique individuals her coaching style is unique to every client. Ms Hayes says, "My coaching style is not text book because life is not textbook. To set you up with a standard style would not be beneficial, I understand that every individual comes to me with a specific character. Therefore, my styles of coaching are based on the individual as well as the circumstance." Clients are also taught communication skills where they can be heard and can hear others. They are taught how to master body language and key words in order to align themselves in a position of power to master their own lives. "As an end result, the client will be able to live life and achieve their goals on their own terms and not the terms of society, Zelda continues, "I am not your everyday life coach."

Today we have two special guests who not only served at Bethel headquarters but also served as Gilead Missionaries and trainers in Spain for many years.
Very few know about the big shake up at Watchtower Headquarters in 1980 that eventually led to former Governing Body member Ray Franz Crisis of Conscience! It all began with 4 Spanish translators for the New World translation (Chris and Norma Sanchez) and for the Watchtower magazines and publications (Nestor and Toni Kuilan). Nestor and Toni served in Spain during the dictatorship regimen of Francisco Franco and also worked in the circuit, district, as a conductor of the two week school for the elders as well in the service department in the Barcelona Branch. This will be a riveting interview of not only their story in becoming Jehovah's Witnesses but the important work they did that has garnered them the honor of the only reinstatement possible must be done by the governing body members themselves if Nestor and Toni should ever decide to return! This will be the first of 2 programs with this couple the other being done October 4th! Both of these interviews are reserved for 2 hour programs so everyone can get the juicy details!
