    I’d ask for an investigation of every Catholic for child pedophilia. Did they really do enough to prevent it? Also investigate the TeaParty for the attack in Arizona. Investigate evangelists if they did enough to prevent the murder of doctors. And especially investigate Peter King for his open relations with the IRA.

    Actually, since the clergy lost temporal power (1960s), things should get better. There should be less and less paedophile priests.

    Let me explain. In pre-1960s rural Quebec, there were three people who had power over villages; the mayor, the doctor, but mostly the priest. If a boy wanted to be a lawyer, he had to go study in some college ran by priests. If a boy wanted to be a doctor, he had to go study in some college ran by priests. If a boy wanted to be anything more than a manual worker, he had to go study with priests. Very often, boys were thrown into seminary before they hit puberty not out of interest for religion but because mommy or grandma wanted the family to have at least one priest so they would be respected by the village people. Mothers were told that having a son in priesthood was a free ticket to heaven.

    Now there are much less priests but the men in the seminaries are well into their twenties. They know how the outside World works, they had the time to mature emotionally and they had relationships with women (or men) and are in there for the right reasons.
