Can the Vatican please move forward and abolish their pagan-based, celibacy requirement for priests so they’ll stop molesting little boys already? There’s nothing Jewish, Christian, or remotely Jesus-y about it and with the latest child sex abuse scandal to rock the Catholic Church in Germany, it might be something they seriously start considering as hundreds of victims are now coming forward.
This incident is particularly troubling for the papacy, because it has direct links to Pope Benedict and his brother (pictured). Apparently, in the 1980s, they both presided over a monastery and convicted pedophile priest who was transferred after he was caught touching boys and then allowed to work with kids again. Now, once again, he’s one of the central figures in this latest case, which not only only makes the Catholic Church look bad, but evil too.
