    I already said this: the need to be arrested, tried, and jailed if they are found to have been negligent or complicit in anything having to do with this. Just like they are everywhere else in the developed world -- which the Catholic Church apparently doesn't consider itself part of.

    Does that include confessors?

    It ideally includes anyone and everyone who did the things listed above, and belongs to the human race. So yes.

    Seriously, you're asking if such things are an excuse for pedophilia? Really?

    But his church isn't relevant, no churches are. He's just desperate to keep his job in the face of millions of Catholics seeing the light and flooding out of his churches. The only people who are sticking around are from poor nations and that doesn't buy him any more golden thrones, does it?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yet he hasn't sold one thing in the Vatican and donated the money to the poor. Hypocrisy much?

    So you want to imprison Catholic priests for upholding the seal of confession.

    This would have all been a lot simpler if you would have just said clearly that you wanted the Church suppressed.

    I said confessors, not penitents.

    The church has always had privileges that it simply doesn't deserve, and by this, I don't mean just the Catholics, but all religions. There is no other group out there that isn't required, by law, to come forward if they learn of a crime being committed. None. Just those idiots in dresses and funny hats. We need to take away those undeserved privileges and make them act responsibly, but of course the whole of the Catholic Church would implode if we forcibly held them accountable for the priest sex scandal.

    My bad. Well, that does put the confessors is a very awkward situation. In the end I don't think a religion should shield somebody from justice.

    So are you saying that priests who uphold the seal should be arrested?
