    Solution ? Minors should be taught that such evil deeds happen and could happen to them; they should be closely chaperoned. These perpetrators can pretend and hide their true feelings.

    Matthew 7:15-19 "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. "You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? "So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.

    Matt 7:22,23 – "On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness."

    Only the Bishops created this problem? If Pope Francis is serious all of those priests and Bishops need to LEAVE the priesthood.

    Talk is cheap. I don't care about Francis' empty words. He needs to fire bishops who moved around sexually abusive priests.

    Behind the times… other religions post Christianity warned priests of celibacy. Muhammad (Islam) stated "Nay, they made it up themselves." Baha'u'llah (Baha'i Faith) warned them "Enter ye into wedlock, that after you someone may fill your place. We have forbidden you perfidious acts…" and He wrote ”We shrink, for very shame, from treating the subject of boys. Fear ye the Merciful,.."

    Catholics need a set of demands. They need freedom of information. They need a BILL OF RIGHTS.

    Every state should have an investigation. .there are a lot more than 1000 victims..let's see some action…the church has no credibility at this point..and yes, raping children is a crime and needs to be addressed by civil authorities. ..glad the good ole boys club finally recognizes that point..

    I am willing to forgive, but please STOP saying masses for the victims! Enough is enough of this false religion forced upon us. I could not say no when I was a child, but I say no now, as God is my witness! They have no permission to say ritual masses over me summoning up dead saints, fallen angels and calling on false gods and idols to assist me. I reject their assistance in Jesus' Name. Jesus took this all on Himself on the cross for us all! HIM Who is without sin! how can a sinful priest doing a ritual do anything. It is a dead work. "What must I do to be saved? believe in the Lord Jesus and thou shall be saved and thy house" (Acts ​@-31)

    Dirty old perverts. Disgusting paedophiles. How ANYBODY can support the Catholic Church is, frankly, beyond me. They’ll never go to Heaven.
