in the case of where inappropriate behavior was found by priest what happens to them? Is it true that they just get transferred? Is it not still a crime? They should be in jail. I think alot of these worthless bastards are hiding behind the church so that they will not go to prison. what do you think?Answer Question

I think you will find molestors in schools, playgrounds, churches, and even within families. It's a big mistake to think it mostly happens with priests -- it mostly happens within a family.
Unfortunately it's true that in the past priests who molested were transferred and charges were not brought up -- the same thing happened to teachers in public schools, coaches in little league, and the uncle that no one really likes. As a society we covered such things up. I'm glad that it's out in the open more and being better dealt with.
At my Catholic Church parents (anyone) who works with kids is required to take Virtus training that is designed to educate parents about molestation. If it's something you're truely worried about -- educating yourself about the issues around child molestation makes a lot more sense then avoiding priests.
