We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Excuses are all these people have.

The answer is very simple. But since the Bible only crowd gets all its truth from the mainstream media, you won't believe me.

It boils down to this. Faith in God. God protects His Church. Even from His own Bishops and Priests.

First, I want you to review this in the Bible:

Matthew 10:36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Throughout the history of the Catholic Church, we've had our share of foes in our own household. Arius, Macedonius, Nestor, and others, were Bishops of the Catholic Church. Yet they invented heresies which were condemned by the Catholic Church.

A few years ago, it was rumored that the liberal Bishops in the Church were going to announce that the Church no longer believed in marriage between a man and a woman. In other words, they were going to normalize same sex marriage. They even held a summit in the US. They invited liberal Bishops from all over the world. And it looked as though they would succeed. When, all of a sudden, the Holy Spirit mobilized His orthodox Bishops. They invaded the summit and forestalled any such nonesense.

The last thing you need to worry about, is the Church. God is protecting His Body. What you need to worry about is getting untangled from the mess of lies and heresies which you have swallowed hook, line and sinker. Come back to God's Church.

Mark,

The answer is very simple:
The Roman Catholic Church was founded essentially in the early 5th century and it all boils down to the fact that it is a man-made organization which corrupted the Christian faith from the beginning. 

From the beginning sexual immorality has been rife among the papacy. See my article here about the Papacy:
https://watchmansbagpipes.blogspot.com/2010/06/papacy-infallibility-and-magisterium.html

The reason the RCC has had foes is because it is an apostate and heretical organization. Sexual abuse by priests has been going on for decades (as exposed publicly by the Boston Globe’s “Spotlight” research in 2001-2002. Look at my article here:
https://watchmansbagpipes.blogspot.com/2018/07/pedophile-priests.html

I believe the whole problem with sexual immorality stems from the RCC’s rules about celibate priests, treating marriage as if it soils the persons involved. The RCC belief about sex being defiling is why they developed the idea that Mary remained a virgin because, after all, we couldn’t have the womb that bore Jesus being later “defiled,” now could we?

The “Church” is the believers, not the RCC. While God may protect his “Church,” there is no reason for Him to protect the apostate and heretical RCC organization.

I guess i don't find it funny. Many in the RCC need the Lord......this is a reminder to pray...not to laugh.

It isn't meant to be funny, nor is it a laughing matter. It is a visual way to make a point about the RCC, their abuse of children, and their coverup of it. These are called graphic editorials.
