Re: The Pope

the whole celebacy thing should also be abolished, as it's a major driving force of priests acting on their darker impulses.
Timelord Victorious, if you have any actual evidence of celibacy being the driving force, please cite it. 'Cause I've never seen any. Many convicted pedophiles are married. The first clergy person I ever heard of molesting a child, decades ago, was a married Episcopal priest. Teachers, Boy Scout leaders and doctors are not required to be celibate, and plenty of them have been charged with various inappropriate actions with their students/scouts/patients.

I'll be less skeptical of these allegations when the New York Times carries them.
This.

And when Snopes.com posts their conclusion. Right now it says they're researching the allegations.
