Heard the recent news?????? Oh! It was so disgusting. Priest involved in cases like raped and pedophile in California USA (I hope I'm not mistaken of the place). Imagine there is one gal saying she was raped when she was still 7 years of age up to 14 years old. Another victim, a guy said he was being molested at the age of 12-15. The incident happened in the year 1990 up to 2002. The victims are coming out in the open now. This news in not so new to everyone of us because it can happen anywhere. What I just want to imply is that why the priest who we always took up. Who we think are good person. Of course I am very well know that they are also person bound to commit mistakes but please now this kind of criminal age. Where is their vow of celibacy? Parents now in our country ( maybe to you to) advice there children not to go near with a priest especially to those priest who hugs and kisses younger ones. You see what the other priest done affects the others. They put malice to the mind of the parents but who can blame the parents, they are just protecting there children from harm.

I am not a religious person so I do not mean to offend anyone that is but I think this really prooves that the life the priests and monks and nuns for that matter is an unnatural existence after all these people are just ordinary people with no special powers and we human beings are just animals and all animals have natural instincts which nature or a higher power gave us so I think it really prooves how unnatural it is to try and live a life that goes against instincts and desires that were embedded in us...

Again with the priests! Did you know that there is more child abuse and molestation in the fundamental protestant, and Muslim religions than the catholic churches. And there are more catholic priests than both of those church leaders combined? Oh, and just in case you think I'm biased towards thecatholic church, I'm atheist.

Your just giving your opinion and there is no biased in it. Any religious person are do it but I'm not concern only on the person per se but very much with the act. Thanks!

Ah, but you only said priests, not clergy, and it goes on everywhere that children are left with non parental adults. Sadly, some seem to be drawn to this kind of place just for the chance to abuse children.

it is a shocking truth to most people to hear that a priest molests his young boy assistants in church, they be male or female. this practice among priests has long been going in the philippines. the first ones known of involved spanish priests during the occupation of spain from the 1500's till the 1800's. some women got pregnant by those priests! evidence therefor involved the children that their mothers brought forth into this world. until now, this problem is never put to an end. instead the problem has worsened. they no longer abuse young women who are already capable of pregnancy, they are also abusing men and young boys and girls. i agree with you that we should take caution even in dealing with these so called holy men. at times the one we think to be holy is the most evil one there is.

Maybe this things happened to test the faith of the people in God, wether we have different beliefs or religion/denomination whatever. In my opinion the best thing we can do is pray hard, pray that this things will be lessened and delver this priest from evil adn not be tempted to thier evil ways. We must pray for the forgiveness of God to them, because they were only human they have weaknesses too like any ordinary people.

like i comment in another post, is so sad all thos priest are getting to the wrong way, i don belive in god but i think if you tell people to do something or fallow something you must be the one that put the example, is too cruel to use the kids and woment that fallow you for your own poleasure and make the belive is becuse god askded for it, thos poor child grow in pain and with the temor some day they can have problesm if they told the truth to the world i hope that all the people that have suffer this kind of ause make it public so that organisation names religions can change those problems
