It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Fyodor gives JoePa the benefit of the doubt.

By all accounts, Coach Paterno is a good Catholic, a gentleman, and a good husband, father, and grandfather. Sadly, our times are so benighted as to render those things insufficient. [Did you hear him ask people to pray for Sandusky's victim's? Did you hear how he was then mocked for being a senile old fool? That tells you everything you need to know about the death of our civilization.]

There have always been and always will be men who choose evil to satisfy their disordered desires, whether they desire children or political power or money. There are also men who recognize their desires are disordered and by the grace of God refuse to succumb to their weakness by sinning against God and their fellow men. [That's right, kiddies. Homosexuals can go to heaven if they keep their pants on and repent and go to confession if they don't.]

Coach Paterno comes from a time when homosexuals knew their place. Today, all sorts of perversions are not only tolerated, they are encouraged and celebrated by politicians, Hollyweird, the media, and corporations that see green, not pink. It is quite possible Jerry Sandusky became a football coach just to indulge his vile desires. It is even more likely he created his Second Mile charity so he could more easily find "at risk" boys. You know, boys from poor and broken families who have nobody to protect them, nobody who cares about them...boys with no self esteem who probably won't fight back and probably won't tell anyone...

There used to be more checks on guys like Sandusky. They knew they were perverts who didn't belong in the company of decent folks. They stayed in the dank, dark shadows and mostly preyed on each other. In the bad old days, Sandusky probably would have spent his life masturbating while thinking about little boys - a pervert harming only himself.

But in our endarkened age, perversion is celebrated, as if it were the same as dying your hair purple because your favorite lead singer did it. [Yippee! Free will! No consequences!] No one is allowed to look askance at homosexuals and their self-destructive, other-destructive, public health threatening behavior, much less label them sinners who need to repent. [I know...quaint, right?]

The clowns who run Penn State have been trying to get rid of Joe Paterno for years and now they've succeeded. I hope they get taken out as well, because nobody did enough in this situation, and all are morally culpable.

Joe Paterno to retire

Legendary coach Joe Paterno said today that he is "absolutely devastated" by the sex abuse scandal that has rocked the school and announced that he will retire at the end of this season.

Paterno's retirement after 46 years is the latest casualty of the Penn State sex abuse scandal.

"I am absolutely devastated by the developments in this case," Paterno, 84, said in a statement today. "I grieve for the children and their families, and I pray for their comfort and relief."

"This is a tragedy. It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more," he said.

Paterno, who set a record this year as the winningest coach in top level college football ever, said it has been his intention to "serve the best interests of this university and the young men who have been entrusted to my care."

"That's why I have decided to announce my retirement effective at the end of this season. At this moment the Board of Trustees should not spend a single minute discussing my status. They have far more important matters to address. I want to make this as easy for them as I possibly can," Paterno said.

Paterno's exit will mark one of the biggest losses amid the sex abuse scandal that has shaken the university and seen two of its top officials and a former coach arrested and charged criminally.

Penn State president Graham Spanier's tenure is also uncertain, as the board of trustees is reportedly considering replacing him with former Pennsylvania governor and Department of Homeland Security secretary Tom Ridge, according to ESPN.

Penn State representatives did not have an immediate comment.

Paterno's decision was made after he came under intense criticism following allegations of a school cover-up of sexual abuse of children by his longtime assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky. The incidents occurred on campus and were brought to the attention of Paterno and others, according to a grand jury presentment.

"I've lived for this place. I've lived for people like you guys and girls," Paterno said Tuesday night to fans who had gathered outside his home. "It's hard for me to say how much this means.

"As you know, the kids that were the victims. I think we ought to say a prayer for them," he said.

Sandusky was arrested Saturday and charged with molesting eight boys over 15 years, all of whom he met through his charitable organization, The Second Mile, a group home and outreach program for troubled boys.

Also arrested were athletic director Tim Curly and Vice President for Finance Gary Shultz, who are charged with not reporting the sexual abuse to police and lying to a grand jury under oath during the investigation.

The charges stem from a March 2002, incident in which graduate assistant coach Mike McQueary allegedly saw Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in a locker room shower in the Penn State football department. McQueary told Paterno what he saw, and Paterno in turn told Curly and Shultz. None of the men reported the incident to police.

The Pennsylvania attorney general said Monday that Curly and Shultz were legally required to alert police to the incident, while Paterno was only legally obligated to tell his superiors. But Paterno has come under fire for failing what police called a "moral obligation" to alert them to the crimes.

Penn State Sex Scandal Grows

Pressure has also increased for university president Graham Spanier to step down for his role in the scandal. Curly and Shultz reported to Spanier that there had been an inappropriate incident with Sandusky and a child in the locker room showers, and that they had taken away Sandusky's privilege of bringing children onto campus. Spanier approved the decision and never reported the Sandusky incident to police.

Sandusky allegedly molested some of the children that he brought to the Penn State campus to meet the team members and work out at the facilities. He also brought them along on trips to away games and plied them with gifts, according to the presentment.

Two earlier sexual assaults on campus had been brought to the attention of employees and administrators, neither of which were reported to the police, according to the attorney general. In 1998 two boys reportedly came forward to say Sandusky had fondled them in the team's showers. Campus police had eavesdropped on a conversation between Sandusky and one boy's mother. That mother recently described the exchange to local reporter Sara Ganim with the Patriot News.

"He admitted to taking the shower, he admitted to some extent something bad happened," the woman, who was not identified, said. "He asked her for forgiveness. He said 'I probably won't get it from you,' and then he said 'I wish I were dead.'"

The mother said that she was proud of her son, who had the courage stand up to one of the giants of college football, according to Ganim. The boy's allegation led to the three-year grand jury investigation that resulted in sexual assault charges.

Sandusky was a coach and defensive coordinator for the team for 23 years before retiring in 1999. After his retirement, he continued to have unlimited access to the football department and campus, and continued to run football camps for boys at Penn State's campuses.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
