    Utterly ridiculous. Those Roman Catholics who have eyes to see and ears to hear and brains to think, must be cringing with embarrassment. What next? Extra ambrosia in Heaven if you follow the Vatican on Facebook?
    What would Jesus have said about all this?

    How Wonderful, How Wonderful,

    “by offering “indulgences” to followers of Pope Francis’ tweets. The church’s granted indulgences reduce the time Catholics believe they will have to spend in purgatory after they have confessed and been absolved of their sins.” the Guardian reports.”

    Wonderful, no cost time off Purgatory in the internet age. In the middle ages the cost was very high. Technology comes to the rescue of the dammed.

    See how it was in the middle ages.

        Jim Swifty and Point of View,

        The Vatican Money is Escrow Money for the Purgatory expenses, that is the modern way. Ti belongs to the Church, the Administer of the Purgatory.

        The Buddist Monk Hegemony.

        Point of View and amarasiri:

        Always one rotten apple can be found among good Apples.

        but, I don’t think buddhist monks break their promises as the way Catholic/christian Priests do.

        Rewd the following ; It is all over the world in many countries, and spread over one Century.

          Jim Swifty,

          Yes, there are bad apples. Some baskets have more bad apples based on the appled farm they come from. So, we need to rank the apples baskets as to the number of bad apples, their taste, fiber content, carbohydrate content, sugar, worms, nutrients etc.

          The Sexual Abuse Rankings, 100 is the top, 0 is the bottom. The numbers are sexual abuse per 1,000,000 of the population. My guy estimate. Correct it with actual supportable figures. Assume, reported is only 1 in 10.

          Estimated for Catholic Priests, Buddhist Monks, Hindu Priests, Muslim Ulema-Mullahs,Protestant Priests.

          Unmarried: Need an Outlet
          Catholics, 500 ( Boys and few girls)
          Buddhists 400. ( Almost exclusively boys)

          Married: Already have an outlet
          Hindus 10 ( Girls)
          Muslims 7 (Girls)
          Protestants 5 ( Girls)

          Here is support for my Hypothesis,for Christians and Buddhists,

          Estimated CRIMINAL KILLINGS AND PROPERTY DAMAGE for Buddhist Monks, Catholic Priests Hindu Priests, Muslim Ulema-Mullahs,Protestant Priests.

          Ahimsa: Nibbana, Rebirth
          Buddhists 500 ( Sri Lanka, Burma)

          Hindus 5
          Muslims 30 ( Sharia)
          Protestants 3

            amarasiri; then the Ranking for the Church should go above 100. Because Church sexual scandals are all over the world spread over one century.

            Read this link “http://www.reformation.org/franciscans.html “

            How brothers and sisters had sex. their residences were connected via under ground tunnels.
