    Of course it does, I mean, the age of consent in the Vatican is 14.

    Before you answer, read the linked article:

    Yes. Church policies have tacitly allowed pedophilia to flourish. My vote. I cannot believe that Bishops, etc., who live in the United States and have turned a blind eye, remain on prosecuted. I'm guessing "the state" doesn't want to tackle religion. But both sides, BOTH sides, should be ashamed of themselves.

    I used to donate to St. Vincent DePaul. I wouldn't give them a broken toaster.

    hmmm I find that when I hear catholic priest I think pedophile, I might also think dirty old men. Hopefully more and more catholic parents will keep their children away from these priests.

    I vote yes

    I really don't know. But I think it's a problem if there have not been charges and arrests made in all of this.
