Isn't it amazing about how all you ignorant bigots bring up something like that in response to a news story that doesn't even touch on the matter?

For one thing, Penn State professor (and Episcopalian) Philip Jenkins pointed out in "Priests and Pedophiles" (Oxford University Press) that the incidence of sexual abuse among Catholic priests is no more common than it is with ministers and rabbis. For another thing, the U.S. Department of Education estimated, in 2004, that the incidence of sexual abuse in the public schools is "at least 100 times worse" than with Catholic priests.
(And if you doubt that, read the stories about local ministers and schoolteachers in the Morning Call.)

Besides, Benedict XVI was never accused of approving of, let alone committing, sex outside of marriage.

Vacation chalet in the Alps? I'm not a Catholic, but don't priests take a vow of poverty? I liked the last guy better.
