The church has shown itself to be more concern with protecting the established order than protecting those most volnerable in its ranks. That in itself is a sin!

Neat, and right on, as usual.

Part of the problem stems from holding priest in special esteem (that is assuming that they are "special" instead of just ordinary humans).

Now Catholics are claiming it's not important to defrock. They simply want the perverts to be "under supervision" of the local Bishop. We all know now what that means.

It is sad to see religion being viewed as nothing more than a business or just another way to influence attitudes of the masses. This type of behavior should be thoroughly investigated, reported about, and properly rectified by the Catholic Church. Sins should be forgiven but not go unpunished.

This should also hold true for previous presidential administrations and any past or present government corruption.

Ann---Your new comment format seems to cater to long winded commentators such as myself. May the Freedom of expression and the Press always stay intact without any type of outside interference!
