Catholic Church has a list of 5000 accused clergy...

Accusations don't imply guilt, but in the case of the Catholic Church, it's entire history from its foundations, through it's growth, to its domineering violence during the dark ages, and now to its present underground immorality, interference in Africa (etc), etc, anything that harms the Catholic Church is bound to do Humanity an endless good.

"Family members of a Hudson, Wis., man killed by a priest are fed up with what they see as inaction by the Catholic Church and angry that their requests for reform have been ignored. So they're taking the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops to court.

Nearly 200 bishops were named in a civil lawsuit Tuesday by the family of Dan O'Connell, one of two men shot to death at his family's Hudson funeral home in 2002.

The family filed the unprecedented lawsuit, which asks for the names and locations of some 5,000 clergy accused of molesting children, so they can publicize the list. They say the list is known only to the church."

This is another news article about the case I've already posted about, at http://www.centredaily.com/mld/centredaily/news/nation/15233931.htm , and continues intriguingly:

"The litigation is unique because of its scope and because others may join to make it a national class-action lawsuit against the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops, said Jeff Anderson, the attorney for Dan O'Connell's family,

"The bishops and the USCCB have established a policy of harboring and protecting suspected child molesting agents, thereby endangering numerous children throughout the United States," the complaint said."

It would be truly beautiful to see the Catholic Church, which has been resistant to all hints of modern morality (no gay rights, no female emancipation, no condoms, no abortion, no euthanasia, etc), finally begin to suffer, legally and morally, after millenia of its abuse of mankind.

Mere loss of numbers isn't enough... I was cataclysmic destructions of bits and pieces of the Catholic body... not merely some slow, painful, bitter withering-away.

Yes, these aspects of Catholicism really make me sick. Those pedophiles should pay and all grievances brought about by the Church needs to publicized and corrected. Unfortunately, it's just the deeply ingrained beliefs that corrupt their behavior.

I would not think anything that harms such a huge body will do mankind any good at all.

The Paranoia of the catholic church is one of the bigest root causes negative effects of the religon. Harming it will only cause more paranoia and more of a tendancy to hide things it should be open about.

If the catolic church had a policy of handing any allogation of abuse over to the police for investigation it would serve both the church, it's clergy and to population as a whole. The church because it would increase trust in the body as a whole. The clergy because it would put an end to rumours that would otherwise plauge the innocent and the population because the guilty would be removed from positions where harm can be caused.
