I think while it urgent to protect the children from the abusers - we also take in to consideration that the abusers are sick and they need to be treated too

Mary, we agree with you but society needs to protect itself from those who would abuse us. However you look at it putting a self confessed child molesting priest in an environment where is taking confession from children is hardly treatment - more like temptation!

We use them to make real world changes. Politicians (and hopefully Popes) see the will of the people expressed collectively and they listen. We've changed laws, ensured justice and protected people through petitions, they work really well!

That isn't true Jessica. Many world leaders have made it very clear that online petitions helped them change their position on important topics. Cynically minded people like to say that. But they're probably the same people that wouldn't lift a finger to try and help other people anyway.

With all the religious dogma to hide behind, it becomes so easy to fool the masses who can not think for themselves that it just a load of bullshit in a dress, acting like they are doing people a favour, down with all churches, I am good without a god, I know right from wrong, why can't you?

These types of bad behavior are neither Catholic, Christian or acceptable for anyone not matter what their religion is or even if they claim no religion. There are many sickos out there and we need to voice it loudly!
