You know these priests are in a minority that is a tiny fraction of 1% of their clergy. When you consider the proportionality of sin among people in general, this is very low. I grew up as a Catholic in New York with mostly Catholic friends and "never" experienced, heard of, or witnessed such abuse; and, most of us kids were Catholic and altar boys.

Right--these things were not talked about to children in the "good old days" but smart ones picked up on a lot of things. My parents used to tell about their shocked surprise when my four year old brother and I, five and a few months at the time, were with them while they checked on a milk cow that was due to calve, and brother turned to me and said "Sissy, do you believe that cow is really pregnant?" Parents didn't even realize he knew the meaning of the word!

How do you know how much sin people commit? Or how much priests commit? The scandal,is that it is clear the church itself hid this stuff and protected the priests. That's institutional sin that makes anyone involved in the hierarchy guilty by association.

So if your grandfather robbed a bank when he was young, and you still love your grandfather, does that make you guilty by association.

And how do you suggest we confirm they are indeed pedophiles without the trial, juries and judges?

guilty and still making a salary bigger than mine. Until the Catholic church allows priests to marry and does a deep psych study on these priest wannabies, we're going to have this. This is one of the many reasons I have left the church. I believe in God and have a strong faith...keep those hung over pedos that rip you up during confession. Jesus didn't do that............BTW...CC, largest business in the world........can I be really saved if I contribute everything I own?? Bitter??? Ubettcha

Throw the Vatican Catholics out of the United state.. Why do they... as a religion put up with these things being done to their children???? I think they are just as sick as the priests are.

to GreatGrandmama,
I agree.

Of course it is not possible to "throw the Vatican Catholics" out of the US.
We cannot make laws respecting an establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof. Getting rid of the Catholic church and its transgressions will have to be up to those who are supporting it--the Catholic laity. This institution is a perfect example of how true are the words of Lord Acton: POWER CORRUPTS. ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY. Somehow I doubt that amassing wealth, dressing up in costly robes and putting on the shows that the Vatican produces would be pleasing to Jesus.

So, how much does this defense cost the Vatican?
At least four Bankrupt Dioceses in the United States Alone!

Keeping the jury "deliberating" for 13 days is intimidation. If the jury could not reach a verdict in x days (x

Meanwhile, no less than 5 dozen teachers have been removed or fired in the last 4 months for the same issue (The big difference was it didn't happen 20 years ago). The rest of the guilty were passed like trash to the next district. .

Any Catholics on the jury? Those are the ones who will continue to want it swept under the rug. They care nothing for the victims.
07:02 PM on 06/20/2012
If there are any catholics on the jury, the bishop told them to acquit or burn forever.

Its time to END Jury trials, its 12 stupid prejudiced people that allows criminals to walk. These molestors will walk away as did O.J. and Casey Anthony & John Edwards. America is trapped in 1776.

I completely agree. Americans seem to feel that the jury system is perfect, when, in reality, it is corrupt and archaic. The American system of justice does a terrific job of serving the wealthy as well as others who can scrape up lots and lots of money. The mystery is why Americans seem so blind to this, often arguing that we have the best justice system in the world. Really???

It sounds very much like obstruction of justice, spoliation of evidence, aiding and abetting after the fact, and mispirision of felony. Acting like Borgias does not give you immunity even if you wear the cloth. If anything, they should be held to a higher standard because they held positions of trust.

Wow! Such big legal jargon. Very intimidating to the local peasant.

It's really not that difficult to understand, Hitchslap, if you have a minimum of education.
