Yesterday in the wee morning hours, I watched a replay on CSPAN of 1 1/2 hours of commentary by refugees from the Roman Catholic Church. These whistleblowers are beseeching Pope Francis to end celibacy. Why? Because there is a "cloud" behind which 50% or more of Roman Catholic priests, with the full knowledge of the Vatican and most everyone in the church across the U.S and all over the world, live a lie of celibacy.
When the sexual urges arise, it is common knowledge within the church that priests look for sexual release primarily with children and co-workers in the church. They prey on the vulnerable whose lives are filled with torment unless they turn to suicide and they do.
Here is the link to the remarkable, poignant and courageous voices - author Michael D'Antonio and fellow activists from the church who are calling on Pope Francis to face up to the truth and end celibacy.
