Catholics: Your views on new pope
The Devil in the Details
I was raised catholic. I left the church in high school. It just never felt right. I was appalled by the pedophilia scandel. I was horrified to find out these criminals were being dumped on unsuspecting parishes. I, then find the man who was entrusted to repair this mess just tried to gloss it over and threatened bishops with excommunication if they revealed these Criminal acts. Don't worry, the pedophiles were not being excommunicated, just dumped in the middle of more unsuspecting children.
I can't imagine what you do with a pope who has crawled in bed with the devil. Criminal charges would be a start.
Is a pedophile a priest? I don't think so. How do you tell who is who? I will never return to the church run by old men.
