Now the question is, what is best done with bad fish?

What should have been done in the first place: march them out to the curb to the waiting arms of the police. (Re: pedophile priests.)

I left the Catholic church years ago over that exact issue, for that exact reason.

You shouldn’t let the scandal of notorious sinners in the Church cut yourself off from the saving grace of Christ in the sacraments. Please consider coming home.

If you think that the police were “waiting,” then you would be wrong. The clergy was part of the class of citizens who enjoyed immunity. Like the local banker, the priest/pastor caught in a whore house was seldom sent to jail.

It's not a reason to leave. To leave for dogma or disagreement over doctrine is one thing, but to leave because there are sinners and those who overlook sin ignores the basic dogma

The way I see it, the priest even at a mass is a minister to the entire community of priests -- you and me. The true, High Priest is present at every Eucharist -- Jesus Christ.

Whoever that minister priest it, whether good or bad, his significance is to assist in the celebration led by the High Priest and one-time Sacrifice, Jesus Christ

You committed what St Francis de Sales called spiritual suicide.

Have you renounced your citizenship and left the United States because of Obama, yet?
