Noted thank you Rose.
Male Chauvinist!!!!!!!!!!!! I would not insult pigs by calling him one !!!!!!!!!
""I don't know whether you're a queer or not, but what do you feel when you see a naked woman?" he asked a reporter for Rai Radio.

"Are women themselves not causing harm by unveiling themselves like this?"

The mayor of San Terenzio said the message had left the town's residents "dumbfounded and indignant", while an elderly female resident told Sky Italia television that Corsi "should keep a low profile as he has lots of secrets he would not wish to come out".

Now why does that not surprise me???????????????

If the Church was not supportive of these views, their priests would be reined in for making such nonsensical and derogatory remarks against women. Unfortunately, it seems that the Church's traditional policies and male dominance will never be gotten rid of, so these types of ignorant remarks will continue.

He says women are arrogant; I never met a priest who wasn't arrogant. It's pretty arrogant to believe you have the right to judge other people, and also to believe you have the right to make the rules about a game you yourself do not play. It's pretty arrogant to excuse the violence of men by blaming their female victims. It's pretty arrogant to set yourself up as Mr. Fix-It. This priest needs to go find some humility.

Spoken like a true mysogynist. No wonder he persued religion, he couldn't survive in a normal functioning relationship so go hide behind the cloak of the cloth.

I'm tired of these pathetic justifications in sexual abuse and rapes. We see women all the time being raped and/or mollested when they are NOT dressed in any 'provocative' wear. Just me being a female already puts me at risk of being violated. I have always been more of a tomboy and rarely dressed in 'sexy' clothes yet that didnt stop negative experiences from the male side from happening to me at various stages of my life and I'm almost 31. From the time I was little and kissed by a random pedophile to unwanted attention and catcalls and seeing sickos jacking themselves off in public to almost being raped by a 'friend' to 'massaged' involunatarily by a so called doctor in a medical office(!) two years ago. So the age doesnt matter and how you dress doesnt matter one bit. How is it that these men know so much about what women go through in their lives or even daily basis? Why is it that no one is teaching men, especially young men to treat women with respect and dignity? Why is it always the woman's fault? And why does religion always promotes hatred and defends sick actions?

So superficial he thinks his collar makes him a priest. I am certain that emotional issues bring on behaviors that are unwanted. As a teen living by a beach, I logged in lots of time sunning in a bikini that fit my size 6 body with never a pass. It is not clothing.

Priests should make more effort to connect feelings and needs with sex. The tolerance of abuse of little boys and women is hardly coming from religious comprehension.

'an elderly female resident told Sky Italia television that Corsi "should keep a low profile as he has lots of secrets he would not wish to come out".'
Sodomizing altar boys again, is it? or is it keeping a mistress and having children? hmmmm, what else could it be... It would be a SERVICE TO SOCIETY to TELL EVERY SECRET...

So that EVERYONE can see that these so-called "moral arbiters" are NOT THE EXPERTS ON "MORALITY" THAT THEY CLAIM TO BE...

Anyway people all over Europe, as well as in the U.S., are LEAVING THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN DROVES - renouncing their Baptisms, in many instances -
It certainly seems that in another generation, NO-ONE WILL BE LEFT, as the young people are certainly not going "back" to this medieval nonsense...
{Notice that both this idiot Priest, and the Pope-a-dope himself, chose CHRISTMAS as the time to deliver their hypocritical and UN-LOVING blather...}

We are never to blame a victim for the crime s that the criminal who made the decision to harm another being made! The ROMANS are the OPPOSITE of the men and women who were initiated by JOHN the BAPTIST and JESUS! They were vegetarians who meditated within the THIRD EYE, and were outspoken on the subject of SACRIFICING ANIMALS, PEOPLE, clearly, even at their own risk. WE MUST SEEK THE TRUTH and NEVER FOLLOW THE BRUTAL BELIEFS AND LIES OF THE ROMANS WHO MURDERED SACRED MEN AND THEN SPREAD THEIR OWN KILLING-BASED LIFE STYLES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

The priest is an idiot. What outdated drivel. Will the Catholic Church come into the real world and stop promoting such judgemental, bigoted, ignorant and uneducated views.

Now you know why I eschew and abhor religion. This man is an idiot. Has he ever been married? Probably not. I would like to know what his background is and what gives him the authority besides his dog collar. JFC

I was speechless when I read about his remarks. With that kind of personal interpretation of the Bible`s teachings and the Commandments, he should be defrocked.
In particular, the Commandments saying “Thou shalt not commit adultery” and/or “Thou shalt not not covet ...”, which do NOT end with the words “unless they dress provocatively or neglect doing the housework”.

I am embarrassed for my Catholic friends, who are kinder people than this man who supposedly speaks for them. We all know not to blame the victims !
