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.

I believe all areas of public service should be monitored closely, since it is these areas , whether school teachers or the priest hood of various churches, the people who serve in government office who have easy access and convenient opportunities to take advantage of children and young adults. Therefore it is up to us parents and grand parents to always be on the alert and sad to say suspicious of all.BE A HAWK.

This isn't a discussion about god. It's about child abuse. someone holding a leadership position in a community and using that status to abuse children.
