Why did all of those Catholic priests molest so many children?

Was there ever an answer? Not that an answer takes away from the horrific situation they put these innocent children through, but I was just curious as if any gave a reason as to why?

  • men need sex. i guess the priests think that they could brainwash kids a lot easier and the kids will keep quiet. i think it is time to change the rules, let the priests get married . sex is human nature...... it's natural.

  • Why do all those teachers and youth ministers do the same thing? They look for jobs or volunteer were they can get not only the parents trust but also children. They are just plan sick. they need help.

  • Why just blame the priest. Thousands of children are molested and justice doesnt get served for them.it's just played up in the media because it's a group. It's harder to report each individual molestation thru out the world. Don't categorize all Catholic churches as housing child molesters, because it simply isn't true.

    I'm sorry but this answer has been bugging me all morning. If you look at the statistics, most child molesters are married men. So that argument is moot.

  • Because they are protected by the church and the pope.. They do it because they can.. IMO

    They were protected by really inadequate Bishops. Who have now and are being weeded out. If you really look into this, you will find that there were many more Bishops who as soon as a Priest was accused would move the Priest away from Children. If it was proven without a doubt, the Priest was stripped of all his duties and his collar. Funny it's those stories that you don't hear about.

  • For the same damed reason those sicko Bapist preachers raped little girls. They're disgusting, mentally ill people... kinda like the OP and her weird obsession/hatred of the Catholic Church... yes, we know who you are.

    No. The victims never recieved justice for the crimes. It was never really dealt with and my heart aches for the families.

  • Catholics condemn homosexuality, basically you're going to hell if you're gay"


    That comment is also degrading to Homosexuals. You're basically saying only Homosexuals are Molesters. Very not true, Most molesters are hetero. And just plain ole sick.
