I don't see these sleazebags going anywhere but straight to HELL! It's not like the Catholic religion invented child molestation, but it sure is a low blow to the human race. Members of any congregation should be cautioned not to follow blindly in the footsteps of church leaders. Priests are human, too, and they make mistakes like the rest of us humans. The only problem is, they took an oath before God and man to keep their worldly thoughts to themselves. KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF CHILDREN, YOU SICKOS!

You are an idiot, there are millions of preist. And there are only about a thousand cases, You said it yourself their only human. A major majority of the cases aren't pedophiles, pedophiles Is when the victim is under the age of 14. The preist that were accused of pedophilia are 2% of the total accused preist. That story was the devil and his works. Don't buy into that evil.
Respect catholic preist !!!

I'm respectful of catholic priests, but have the most contempt for those who hide predators and reassign them to another area where they can prey on another crop of children.

Priests are human, true...the percentage of child molesters is small. I have a serious issue of the clergy covering up for their own, enabling predators to continue.

Authorities must be brought in immediately at the discovery of a preditor. Any attempt to cover up is nothing short of criminal, and should be treated accordingly.

I agree with you, that if a person whom ever that person is, commits a crime against a child, should be imedidley held accountable.
but the problem is your reading a bunch of anti catholic propaganda. And taking it as the truth.
Sure there have been cases where some rouge church leaders, have covered up the truth. But that's not the church as a whole, there is good and evil in everything. People aren't interested in hearing, all the good things that the catholic church has done thru out the ages. they only want to show you things that will stir up your emotions. And it looks like they succeeded, with you for that matter. This story is a bunch of garbage.

Right...the media slugs made up this story about "Club Ped". The employee who walked away after 10 months, with a glowing recommendation is likely disgruntled. The catholic hierarchy doesn't move pedophile priests out of sight, hoping no one notices.

Grow up. This story is not about the good & evil of the catholic church. It is about the evil of covering up the tracks of the criminals who should be put away for life. Those "rouge" (or did you mean rogue?) child molesters being sent to a retreat where they can continue in private...not sure how you can possibly defend that. I'm sure its all manufactured by "the media".
