[quote]This has nothing to do with religiously based legislation, it rather has to do with protecting religious freedom.[/quote] This has nothing to do with religious freedom. You cannot escape criminal and civil law by wrapping yourself in religion. See my previous post....

[quote]But that's a matter of civil law and local jurisdiction. There are a lot of countries in Europe where Chalet wouldn't have been breaking the law.

[quote]That's exactly what it's about. Get the camel's nose under the tent by putting the Church in a situation where it can't defend itself without violating its principles. [/quote] That is a very big reach. You are really scum saying this girl had consenual sex at 14 with a old funeral h...

This paragraph sums up the issue: [quote]The Louisiana Supreme Court, in May, reversed the appeals court decision and sided with Caldwell's ruling for the plaintiffs, thus reviving the lawsuit.

[quote] Bestbank Tiger I respect your effort, but this is a waste of time trying to convince them otherwise. [/quote] I just lost respect for Catholictigerfan if he "respects" the efforts of bestbanktiger to disparage the young victim as he has in this thread. You both are scum if you ag...

[quote]It is simply a civil court interfering in religious law. They are trying to interoperate something they have no authority to do so. [/quote] Of course the court has the authority to do so. How else are they going to determine if the confessional exemption applies? If the archdiocese re...

[quote]Sorry, there are some things bigger than the law and this is one of those things.[/quote] I agree doing all one can to protect a minor from sexual abuse is bigger than the law and that is why I would have defended Bayhi had he beat the abuser to death....

[quote] Father Bayhi has everything to lose and nothing to gain in the court of public opinion. If the allegations turn out to be true, he can't possibly look any worse. But if the accuser isn't telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, then he is taking an unfair and undes...

They are the prep. The case is about the church knowing about the sexual abuse and not doing anything to stop it. It involved another church member of some reputation in the church. The girl ask the priest to tell what she said in confession and in other conversations she had with the priest....

re: Forgotston proposes alternatives for fiscal reform in Louisiana - I B Freeman
[quote]The main reason I support the Homestead Exemption is that it gives security to poor people who own their own homes.
