It's true that SOME Catholic priests practiced pedophilia. But most didn't. I suggest you read up on the scandal from books and articles that do not bash the Church.

C'mon.... really, I'm Católico Apostólico Romano. I was an Altar Boy and my aunt is a nun. I studied during 12 years in a Catholic School. My family saved 2 priests and a nun during the Civil War risking their own lives.

My mother goes to Lourdes every two months and we offer a large candle to the Verge of Montserrat twice a year.....

We have been Catholic during the last 1700 years or more...., but as Galileo said, "eppur si muove". Many priests fondled and did things to weak kids. I have seen it. The Church covered it up and moved the priest to other school.

Just two anecdotes, when girls that were studying with the nuns joined our all-male Catholic school, two became pregnant by the same priest (14 and 15 year old girls). One was sent to London to abort and the other married the priest (shotgun wedding).

I do believe that Catholics priests should marry. Women should be able to become priests.
