The catholic church has been on the outside of what society needs for many decades. They claim they have the best interest of their members at heart yet at the same time the spread of HIV has not been stemmed. Also using condoms to prevent unwanted pregnancies. The catholic church should focus on cleaning their own house before they criticize grown adults on how to have consensual sex

What hyprocracy! Only male prostitues pass aids around? I am puzzled as to why this false church has such a following. It's a real ambarressment to a person's I.Q.(Can't have future Catholics die from aids. That would bring down the membership and in turn the $$$$.) Hhhmmm.. let me figure this one out...unless you're a male prostitue it is sin if you put on a condom because you're poor and cannot care for more children is not reason enough? Someone tell me what is wrong with this picture?

Mahony removed Baker from the ministry in 2000 after the Arizona lawsuit.

Baker was charged two years later with 34 counts of molestation involving six victims, but those charges were dismissed in 2003 after the U.S. Supreme Court voided a California law that allowed the prosecution of cases involving acts that occurred before 1988.

Yeah, but those catholic kids are getting better at keeping a secret- not too many new cases in 2010.

I agree with "Got It Now". The church is that screwed up. We gotta wonder, for how long will this be allowed to go on? How can Catholics continue to allow their children to be in the hands of their priest? I understand not every priest (we think) rapes kids, but why take a chance with your child's life? And How can they continue to trust in a religous body that repeatedly proves itself to come short???

When your four-year-old child tells you, "My imaginary friends in the sky tell me to do things," you smile indulgently and understand that he will outgrow that stage. When a man in late middle age tells you the same thing while wearing an outlandish costume, you don't expect him to outgrow anything; you know he has a good job working for the world's oldest and least productive industry, the Catholic Church!(And other religions can be worse so this is not Catholic-bashing.) The best thing for the Pope, the imams, the reverends, and the chief rabbis to have is a revelation that human population growth is the overriding problem. Nothing is solvable on this planet without the realization that all parents musgt stop after two children. We are on the same collision course, as nations fight each other in the Battle of the Birth Canal, that led to World War One, but this time it will result in the environmental death of the planet.

Yea right, he just wants to make sure his boys who are playing with lil' boys cover up the evidence so they don't have to pay so much $$ in compensation, etc...wear a condom to remove evidence. I have respect for the Catholic religion, but not for the nonsense that comes out of the human vatican.
