PBS-Frontline Video: “Secrets of the Vatican”

The Roman Catholic Church is much in the news of late because of the popularity of Pope Francis.  The great excitement surrounding President Obama’s visit to the Vatican is clear evidence of the world’s optimism regarding the Catholic Church’s positive potential. 

The PBS Frontline expose of “Secrets of the Vatican” paints a much more pessimistic picture.  What we Humanists can or should do with this information is another question. Come view the “secrets” video and share with us what you think.

    Sorry that I couldn't find the location. I drove around for about an hour and realized that even if I found it it would be over by then. Maybe I need to consider a newer navigator or a move-in to a retirement facility (i.e. Home for the Bewildered). Hopefully I'll have better luck next year for an event.

    With a major religious institution (Catholic Church) what can average citizens or even Church members do to guard and advocate against sexual abuse and cover-up by the clergy and protect the innocent from these deviant and criminal behaviors?

    This viewing was a second one for me. Very unsettling, but the discussion was worthwhile, as usual, with this group of intelligent free thinkers.

    Secular humanism and Buddhism, compare and contrast. Aside from the divine spark, values and ethics seem compatible. Dalai Lama recently voiced if science proves Buddhism teachings in error, Buddhism must change.

      Let's hope other religious leaders can be as open-minded. The new pope seems to be of the same openness. Let's not pile on the Catholic church at a time they seem to be re-examining their antiquated beliefs of sexism.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
