#1 I thought they are supposed to be celibate?

#2 Celibacy needs to be dropped. As I understand it as much religous reasons part of the reason for it's institution was to prevent positions in the church from being handed down in the family

#3 Celibacy? If they're interested in little boys, marrying ain't going to solve the problem.

#5 The Catholic Church could have saved itself a helluva lotta trouble by adopting the Boy Scouts rule that adult troop leaders are never to be alone with a child. Two or more children are OK. One child is not. It's pretty simple and there's really no excuse for doing it any other way. If you're never alone with a kid there can be no question of impropriety. If you are caught alone with a kid you lose your position. You don't get transferred, you get fired.

#6 I won't even totally close my office door when meeting with a female subordinate. Sad that it's gotten that way

#7 I know a guy who finally admitted he was gay then shortly thereafter started down the road to becoming a priest, maybe going to escape his sexuality. Of course, often there will be a resurgence later. And he would be trapped in the priesthood with a bunch of choir boys and other kids with problems who don't know right from wrong . . . .

#8  Totally ignored in this discussion so far is that there is a branch of the Roman Catholic church (Byzantine Rite) which allows priests to be married. It would be interesting to investigate how much of a problem aberrant sexual behavior has been in that part of the Church. My guess would be, very very little.

#9 Rotten from history. It was Pope Leo X that got his rocks off to young boys leaping naked from cakes.

#10 Hasn't anyone even thought about refering to scripture? Of course not.
