How could it get this bad? : Harrowing details of some 300 cases of alleged sexual abuse by Roman Catholic clergy in Belgium have been released by a Church investigator.

It's ridiculous how this went ignored, for so long.

  • It's been ignored for a long time everywhere. It's all been a horrible blight on the Catholic church. You know someone had to know and yet the church kept it quiet time and time again. That doesn't sound very good does it? It's been to be found so prevalent you wonder if it is a trait of priests.

  • The whole thing just makes me sick. The church knew about it and shuffled priests around to hide it. Abuse happens in every walk of life, every religion but you cant just sweep it under the rug because you dont want to deal with it!

  • Who would want to remain unmarried and celibate their whole lives and use the excuse that they are devoting their lives to GOD??? Nobody would.... unless they want a reason to become close to little boys,seduce them and then frighten them in order to keep it a secret.....
    REALLY. WHo in their right mind would become celibate?
