← The Catholic Church is a Criminal Enterprise

The Catholic Church (in which I was raised) has failed the reality test. It is becoming more and more difficult (almost impossible now) to argue that being a believing Roman Catholic is a good idea. They would appear to have engineered their own downfall. Married priests were okay centuries ago - then the church adopted the rule of mandatory priestly celibacy. Now the church attracts pedophiles to the priesthood because normal men do not want to be celibate all their lives. Well, any institution that opposes normal behavior is probably destined to fail. So be it.
