being from ireland ive been hearing these type of things since i remeber,very hard to respect a religious culture when all this as goin on for so many years,not all catholics nor preist's should be judged in the same manner although i realy think they should put an end to the cellibacy thing,at least make it optional,but i wonder how many of these peodaphiles took on preisthood just to use their power for that very purpose,,,,do preist's become peodophiles,or do peodophiles become preists????

This is organized religion at its worst. Catholic followers, you can do better than this.
