"Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Pope Francis has revealed that “reliable data” collected by the Vatican suggests that one in every 50 members of the Catholic clergy is a pedophile.

Speaking in an interview with La Repubblica, the Pope said his advisers had tried to “reassure” him that paedophilia within the Church was “at the level of two per cent.”  He pledged that he would drive away the “leprosy” of child abuse that was infecting the “house” of Catholicism.

“I find this state of affairs intolerable,” he said. [sources -The Independent, UK,, Belfast Telegraph,NewsthatMatters]

Intolerable? Why not sickening, reprehensible, criminal, condemnable, wretched?  And why would any parent continue to send their children to Catholic schools, Sunday schools..... to be taught by such as these?

The odds are not in their favor.!!.


  1. Well, when you consider that the RCC has an insane rule that priests cannot marry, then you also have to consider that these men are looking for sexual release. Children are easy targets because they can be coerced into silence. I'd bet that 95% of Catholic pedophilia would disappear if priests could marry.

  2. Without a doubt. I found this so hard to believe, I rechecked my source and found others to back it up. Such a sad commentary.

    Are members of the RCC so brain washed they will not demand action? One in fifty - heartbreaking.!!!.
