    It ain't rocket science. Stop taking pedophiles into the priesthood. Then....when one is discovered can his arse instead of moving him to another parish.

    There are more pedophiles in the teaching profession, in sports coaching, in youth workers, in other Churches, in children's entertainers, and a whole bunch of others.

    Currently, 120 priests - out of 400,000 stand accused of child abuse.

    Your hyperbolic bullshit is dismissed as, well, hyperbolic bullshit.

    Again.

    Oh and.... normal protocol is to provide a link if you are addressing a specific news item. Moron.

    LOL.........it's like not seeing the elephant in the room. You do remember that Catholic priests must be celibate don't you. If they would change that one requirement the only thing that would be going on is a lot of the local women would take care of the priestly pressure. In other words real men would serve the priesthood.

    Yes, I'm aware. I'm also aware that more priests leave the priesthood because they fall in love with some female than are defrocked and accused of pedophilia. 120 - out of 400,000. As I said, most other professions with access to children have far worse problems than the Church. But please, don't let that fact get in the way of your hyperbole. You never have before.

    Can you tell a pedophile by looking at them? I am sure LA, and every other schoold district in the country, would love to have you services. If not, you should just keep your mouth shut so you don't confirm you are an idiot.

    Apparently you are not up on the fact that there are some priest in the Catholic Church that are married.

    Right. Pedophiles would change their stripes because of being married. Why doesn't that work with other groups where marriage is allowed? Oh yeah, it doesn't.

    Ask how many girls had an encounter with a friend's father that made them get 'the creeps?' Many. Now what about boys around male adults that were homosexual pedophiles? I can't speak to that, as a female, but I'd bet the results would be close.

    Pedophiles are pedophiles. Heterosexuals and homosexuals that are looking for partners are NOT pedophiles.

    It's not about pedophiles, it's driven by anti-Christian sentiments, the Catholics are just today's scapegoat. Well, us and the Mormons... with Mitt polling well against Obama.

    That is not true. Many people who molest children are married adults. Somehow you missed that fact. They are pedophiles because they are sexually attracted to children. Not because they can't marry.
