Shouldn't the first question be why anyone would want to join themselves to the Israel hating, altar boy boogering, Catholic Church with it's sorrid history and hellish political positions? WWJD?

I don't know where you are coming from but the Catholic Church views Jews as our 'older brothers' in the faith.

As for your statement on 'altar boy boogering', I would refer you to this web site. It seems the Protestant Church ministers far outnumber the Catholic priests in this regard.

If memory serves the Pope just issued a blistering edict to Israel during it's recent run in with Hezbolah. Isn't the new Pope from Germany? The Church should have saved it's recent apology to the Jews for it's actions during WW2, it really rings hollow. Given the Catholic Church's present obvious preference regarding Israels existence, which it flatly denies has anything to do with God's will or fulfillment of prophecy to say moral clarity is lacking here is an understatement.

As for the actions of other denominations regarding child abuse, they do not make it a common practice to hire priests with a certain sexual bent.
