Is a psychological test performed on new priests to determine any potential child molesters? I mean if we have to go through a background check and mental status check when applying for a gun permit what about priests? They're not above the law. How many times in the past have we seen Catholic priests arrested for child molestation? Weed them out before they become priests. What's the problem performing a psychological exam before they're ordained? What about an exam every 3 or 5 years?

A starting point for what you suggest would be testing to see if they are gay- a gay priest would be a violation of the most basic of Catholic beliefs. BTW, see where catholics 'tolerance' of gays has gotten them??
