    The cross is a bad logo for a product. A dude being tortured? Not exactly as catchy as the Harley or Coke logo. But since it is their logo doesn't it seem appropriate that the pedophile priests should be crucified? Live by the sword, die by the sword, etc.

    Priests should be subject to the same punishment regarding any crime as the rest of us.

    I, personally, think that crucifixion is probably the most appropriate one there, but only because of the pain involved. I think they should be incinerated.

    Seriously, though, cross bashing is NOT cool. Sure, it's a tool for a painful execution, but it was that painful execution that saved any who accept it from sin. It has, then, become a symbol of forgiveness and sacrifice. I, personally, prefer the Jesus fish, but that's just me.

    I'm not questioning the cross, just the intelligence of using it for a logo. If Jesus had existed in different time periods people might be running around with guillotines, pistols, electric chairs, the rack or whatever around their necks. Why celebrate the tool of an unjust execution? It's gross and yucky!

    It wasn't a choice of punishment in your poll, but I vote for castration.

    As you all should agree, pedophilia is a very serious and repulsive crime against children. And since all Catholic priests either engage in pedophilia or support it by their non-action, should Catholicism be abolished? Or at least, banned in this country.
    I never hear of any rampant pedophilia among Muslims or Hindus.
    Perhaps we should just kill all of Catholic priests, to set an example that they can't target our children.

    Okay, but by your logic we must first abolish the ACLU (or kill all its members) for supporting NAMBLA. Direct legal support for an organization which supports child molestation is much worse on the scale than someone just "supporting it by their inaction".

    Good point! So many Christians whine that the Muslims don't condemn the actions of Al Qaeda, but when it's time for them to speak up against Christian atrocities they are silent. I guess you could say all Catholics who still attend mass and who make donations condone pedophilia. Their money is going to pay off the lawsuits.
