    Should catholics be banned from building churches near elementuaryschools & daycares

    Should catholics be banned from building churches near elementuary schools & daycares?

    After all a tiny percentage of catholic priests molested some kids. Letting them build near elementuary schools and day cares might be too much of a temptation and would be offensive to those who were abused by child molesters.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yes, they should -- if we were to find dogma within the Catholic Church that pedophilia was accepted behavior.

    How do you know that there is not some sect of catholics who condone child molestation?

    Even if there were some strange dogma tat said they should have sex with kids somewhere in those texts religious people like to assemble and then worship, I don't think you could stop them from building a Church near a school. I mean, the particular practitioners violated no crime. And that's not to say that in the US the dogma isn't relatively ignored or not endorsed. Religions can change. So if that dogma existed and it was still a small number of Catholic Priests who have committed some form of pedophilia, I'd still say the Church is well within its rights to build a building there. Though the best solution is to let priests marry again.

    Well, point me to some Biblical scripture that condones it, and I'll believe it. Onous on you. You prove there is.

    You do realize that it is only a small percentage of catholic priest have molested little kids.

    Five myths about the Catholic sexual abuse scandal
    Sexual abuse of minors is not the province of the Catholic Church alone. About 4 percent of priests committed an act of sexual abuse on a minor between 1950 and 2002, according to a study being conducted by John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. That is roughly consistent with data on many similar professions.

    And that doesn't take away from the final solution. Priests should be allowed to marry again.

    I do not know anything about the catholic bible other than it is slightly similar to the christian bible. As far as I know with the christian bible it doesn't say anything about child molestation. Therefore it could be implied that it was okay as long as the molester was married to his victim and seeing how the catholic bible is similar to the christian bible it probably doesn't say anything about child molestation either.

    No, that's a stupid idea. Priests who molest kids should be thrown in jail just like any other child molester, then it wouldn't be an issue.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    The better solution would be to destroy child molestors whenever we find them. The biggest problem with child molestors of any stripe is repeat offenses.
