Well if the almighty catholic church doesn't want to be bashed anymore on this issue maybe they should DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! For Christ's sake. They excommunicate people for far less. But child molesting preists get paid relocation, anonymity and new fresh group of unsuspecting victims. Maybe I am biased but the catholic church's response to these crimes is appalling.

the Vatican is now repressing the Sisters....
.
“I’m stunned,” said Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of Network, a Catholic social justice lobby founded by sisters. Her group was also cited in the Vatican document, along with the Leadership Conference, for focusing its work too much on poverty and economic injustice, while keeping “silent” on abortion and same-sex marriage.
.
support your local Sisters, and tell them you appreciate what they do, and don't do, for your community.

The point was that homosexuals have taken a lot of trouble to distort the predominant problems, calling it pedophilia to take the attention off the actual nature of homosexuality. The vast majority of cases were not pedophilia and almost all cases involved homosexual priests, even with the few cases of female molestation. People need to see this as clearly as they need to be reminded that the infection of heterosexuals in America with HIV/AIDS came from radical homosexuals being guided by the televised threats from radical homosexuals to intentionally do so.
That's your "point" but it's false, deceptive, and bigoted. Homosexuals are, as I've told you, not more likely than heterosexuals to be child molesters. You want people to "see" it your way because you hate and fear homosexuals and want to continue or regress when it comes to bias and bigotry against them. In essence, you want to blame homosexuality, not the Church itself.

You're nuts, in short. Nutty and bigoted.
