I've always been baptist untill I met my husband and converted to Catholic. I always hear my husband saying how many people hate catholics. Why is that? What is so wrong with the Catholic Church?

It goes back centuries, and is mostly political. The Church of Rome had a whole lot of power, monarchies wanted it, and wars were waged to fight who got to control the population. In order to get the support of the people each side demonized the other as not "true" Christians. Catholics were called idolaters because the of the opulence of their churches, and their beliefs were twisted in order to make them seem bad compared to others. Feelings are passed through generations, and there you have it.

Today it seems a lot of people are upset with the manner in which the Catholic Church is handling the matter of the molestations. In some circumstances it appears that there is a huge cover up and the victims need justice not excuses. If the leaders of said Church would let the authorities handle the matter then it would put the leaders in a more positive light. It's not the Catholics themselves that are at the heart of the matter, rather it is the leaders that are of concern in the cover up.
