Thanks for your post and I think you're right. I was stunned to learn that FOUR of our past priests were actively gay or pedophiles. How can they preach against it, yet indulge in it? I was surprised because I live in a rural area.One of the productive actions he did take, which was significant, but missed, was his amending canon law. This is something John Paul would not do, and that is to expedite the dismissal of priests from the clerical state. This is an excellent tool for the bishops who are pro-active in this regard.
Some of the guilty priests are no longer priests. So the Church does not have any control over them. There is a book that came out some time ago entitled, "All the Pope's Men." It gives an inside look at the workings of the Vatican. Many people think it works like GM or something, but it does not. Moreso, parishes, while part of a diocese, are mostly on there own in their day to day operations.
In my diocese priests with "problems," the code word for alcoholism, were sent to the far edges of the diocese. There they were never heard from again. I think that happened a lot.

Those tapes of ACORN were fraudulent - heavily edited to produce the results desired. Fail.
When are you going to admit the RCC is full of pedophile priests, and stop making excuses for child rapists, instead of attacking the strawmen of public schools and ACORN?
It's 100% obvious that you are desperate, and frantically trying to divert attention away from your sacred kiddy-f'king priests. You are one sick and disturbed individual who aids and abets child molesters. I would not be surprised if you a child molester priest yourself. Your transparent blame-shifting tactics are that desperate, Father O'Kiddydiddler.
