    How about asking these members to STOP SUPPORTING THE PEDOPHILE CATHOLIC CHURCH instead?………………………………………………………………….. The state and federal government gives billions of our hard earned tax dollars support these pedophilia (priests/pastors) organizations. Only one has faced justice, these churches moves these molesters around so they avoid getting caught
