What the hell is up with these freaking catholics? These guys have got to rank right at the top of the most evil shit.... I'm wondering, with these stories popping up so routinely year after year for several decades, how in the hell could anyone in good conscience condone this shit by participating in such disgusting scam of a religion? How the hell could you take your kids into this environment with this ongoing history of pedo priests? That's taking faith a little to far. If you're a catholic, get the hell out before your kids become the next victims.
Some people say that they cover the stuff up to keep the $ rolling in.
I'm not saying all Cath. schools/churches are bad....I do believe some must teach the Gospel and would not cover up crap like this...hopefully. Some people stay in the church because they are raised that way and believe strongly they are supposed to stay in that church.
It is not normal for (most) men to be celibate. I'm not sure why they forbid their Priests to marry....anyone know what scripture or tradition they base this on?
