Dont go down that route, its a cop out Diane and you know it to say,
"well they were never real priests".
yes they were, its just that priests like every other man, have sexual desires and when they spend years ignoring them, those desires become perverse and wrong. I would wager (I have no evidence) that its not the molesters finding the catholic Church, but the Church celibacy rules which are helping to create the problem.
Celibacy is such a stupid ideal, I mean there is no Evidence that Jesus was celibate, their is plenty of evidence to suggest the Virgin Birth was completely made up and even copied from older myths.
so why the celibacy rule. Its stupid, and old fashioned and based on rules and structures built in medievel times.
