POPE Benedict, as Bill Maher says, must long for the days when he was called a Nazi! It gets worse every day. The Church has looked the other way for years about child sex abuse and the chickens have come home to roost. Clerical celebacy must be a #1 Cause as other churches do not have this issue on this volume.

They need to to tax the church. The clergy has too much time and money on their hands. Examples of dicipline should slow down the pedophiles in the church. And besides that all the gold in Vatican City should go to feed the poor in the world!

All the pedophiles in Vatican city are due to those hypocritical secret societies they have for the clergy there. They want to have their cake and eat it too I gues.
