Another one. Anyone who believes in some invisible guy that lives in the clouds. Does not have their head on straight. Any wonder why this crap happens?

Priests are human beings and we are not designed to suppress sexual urges and needs for a lifetime. They can't get away with it with adults but they often do with children. Until the church allows priests to marry then this will continue forever.

Priests not being allowed to marry is the dumbest rule of the Catholic faith!!!!! God did create men & women, not just men!!Ridiculous!

Regardless of whether they can marry or not, sex with a child is wrong. Faith or no faith. It's wrong.

What does anyone who "believes in some invisible guy that lives in the clouds. Does not have their head on straight." have anything to do with a priest who molests children? Sir/Madame you are a moron. This invisible guy in the clouds is God and He has nothing to do with these so-called men-of-His molesting little children.

Who said it wasn't wrong? The church forbidding priests from having sex is why it's happening not an excuse for it.

Agree with most of the posts. Pedophelia has NOTHING to do with one's religion just like rape has nothing to do with sex. It's about power and sickness. Don't fool yourselves. The Catholic church doesn't have a monopoly on this problem. Your church youth groups, sports groups anywhere that there's an adult in authority and trust could get away with this if parents and organizations are not vigilant.

10:47 am should take a good look at his/her life. Or better yet get a life! I feel sorry for you!

Now they are allowing them to get married thinking it will stop them molesting children!

Right God has nothing to do with molesting children. He is beyond that right? With his sending angels to kill the first born of Egypt, or asking a father to sacrifice his son in order to prove his faith. Or better yet letting his own son be sacrificed. Yep god really loves children. NOT.

It is these types of crimes that make Atheists of out off us. What kind of God are the rest of you worshiping that allows this to happen to a little kid ? And not by just anyone, but. By a man who wears a collar and is relied upon by so many to represent the ways of your God. Yea, thats my kind of God. Must be one of those mysterious ways I guess.

There are more teachers abusing and molesting children in this country than Priests. And their excuse is...just saying. That is old, not headline grabbing news. Pedophilia is wrong-period. It makes a better story being a man of the church. I think allowing priests to marry will solve the problem. Obviously it worked for Mr. Sandusky.

God "doesn't allow" this to happen. It's the choice the person makes. God gives us a way out of making poor decisions. We all have a choice. We as humans make the choice to be good or evil. God doesn't make the choices for us he gives us the tools to do the right thing. It is up to us to us those tools...such as prayer and reading the Bible and slamming catholic is wrong.... it is in every denomination. There will be every religion in Heaven. Instead of slamming Catholics and God we should be praying for the child and for the Country as a hole. It is the end times and the Bible states things of this nature will become more prevalent.

Pedophiles are drawn to occupations and organizations that allow them the access and power to perpetrate their crimes. Better to teach your children that it is never OK for an adult to use them in a sexual way.

9:07 - you wrote"Country as a hole." I think you meant whole, but a very interesting probably unintentional play on words.

You are right God does Not allow this to happen, these ppl make their own choices and everything written in the Bible is coming to pass in the End Times! God loved the little children, I certainly do not blame God for the hell I went through during my childhood!
The Bible is the tool to be used to correct us, the word of God is quick & powerful and sharper than a two-edged sword piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul & spirit, and of the joints & marrow, & is a discerner of the thoughts & intents of the heart![Heb 4:12] this means the word of God portrays Us to use the Holy Spirit & His Power, & proclaims the fact He alone can quicken our mortal bodies, Paul tells us also to die out daily to the flesh, we are all weak in the flesh, our carnal mind needs to die daily so we need to get into God's word & apply it to ourselves, "Come ye children, hearken unto Me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord"[Psalms 34:11,which there is no fear of the Lord today "Depart from evil & do good, seek peace & pursue it, the face of the Lord is against them who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth."[Psalms 34:14 &16] which will be done!
