    Yet more child molesters are being exposed on a daily basis it seems. The Catholic church is once again rocked by more allegations against it's priests.

    It seems more and more religions are harbouring these vile men. Men who should be punished in a court of law. Is no one safe from these animals? Horrible excuses for human beings who join religous communities it seems so that they have access to children.

    It is about time all churches stopped harbouring these dispicable beings and handed them over to the authorities to be dealt with instead of protecting them.

    It's not just western churches either.

    Abuse of the position has reached the courts in Huddersfield this week.

    You're wrong on that last part.

    And it's not just the catholic church. Try the Church of Scotland and see their track record.

    I'm talking about The Church of Scotland. Which given your involvement, is easily checkable.

    You need to check what was said before replying like that. It sorts of makes your answers nonsense.

    It is quite telling with the recent visit of the pope just how much of a battering the Catholic church has taken regarding abusive priests and nuns in Ireland.

    Over 2.000.000 people saw the pope at venues. This time those numbers dropped, and the pope didn't have a good time during his visit. Quite the opposite. The people of Ireland are angry and quite rightly so. Maybe now the church will finally do something.

    The population was older when John Paul I visited, and the old ways were stronger as well. It's now "in an instant/now society. Especially in the larger cities.

    Much the same as else where in the world. And it's the older generations that would be most affected by it. The younger generation don't want to know. Unless they can get something, for themselves, out of it.
