    if you yell FAKE to this I say to you NO poo. the point is to mock the church, make fun of it, degrade their "efforts" to handle the molestation issues that STILL continue to this day.

    if you take this literally then I have a few bridges I think your dumbass might be stupid enough to buy...

    Religion is often the subject of politics. It often influences politics. Politicians are often religious.

    But religion is not politics. Religion is not political.

    when the vatican put up a hotline for people to report misconduct with kids and priests they had 3000 hits in the first couple of hours.

    Actually, I`ll point it out for you. I`ll even state what you`re really thinking:

    "I am upset and offended that some people are mockingly referencing a religion by implying its members molest children at a time when said religion is embroiled with child-molestation scandals, and I am somehow unaware that appearing to be upset that said religion is being attacked for being involved in child-molestation seems rather to smack of defending said religion`s child-molestation crimes."

    ...based on what, exactly?

    Sex in the church used to be hugely evident. look at Pope Alexander VI. There used to be orgies and prizes used to go to the ones with the most orgasms. I think that molestation is the oppression of that.

    God damn just let them marry.

    "Now tell me there`s nothing wrong with the Catholic faith. Disturbing." -EvilGrouse

    There is nothing wrong with the Catholic faith. The central dogma of Catholicism condones nothing about the forced molestation of children. In fact, it condemns it.

    The men guilty of these crimes are human. The fact that they`re Catholic priests, too, is horribly unfortunate. But there are millions of Catholic priests and clergy (not to mention the billion or so members) have not, do not, and never will molest children.

    Why is that even a question? If your answer is anything but immediately beat the poo out of him and turn him in to the police, you are a waste of human flesh.

    @schpook...the point of the question was to put it into a different light. As I stated, I don`t condone this behavior (at all), but some of the faithful love their religious leaders as if they are family. And not everyone would turn their family in for committing the most horrible acts imaginable.

    ProXLaw: Gotcha. It`s sad that people would cover up heinous acts just because the person who committed them is someone they love. I`m sorry, but if someone I love did something like that, then obviously they`re not the person I thought they were, and should burn in hell. Or wherever, just burn.

    Clue #1: Those MEN molesting BOYS? Not heterosexuals...
    In the general population, young girls are raped more often than young boys.
    The priests rape boys because they have easy access to, and authority over, boys (altar boys, in the seminary etc). Women are not allowed to become Catholic priests, and altar girls are very uncommon. So they have far less opportunity to rape girls, and very little authority to wield in the subsequent institution-sponsored cover-up.

    To draw a parallel between a healthy normal adult male who is gay and a priest whose sexuality has been warped by suppressing it their entire life is ridiculous and incredibly offensive.
