the whole celebacy thing should also be abolished, as it's a major driving force of priests acting on their darker impulses.
, 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.
And when Snopes.com posts their conclusion. Right now it says they're researching the allegations.
