Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
For once, I agree with mg. Priests who molest should not be punished by the Catholic Church. They should not be laicized or "defrocked" - the Catholic Church should have to live with the shame of having a priest who is a child molester.
The offender should be arrested, tried, and sent to prison. And yes, they should be suspended from ministry while awaiting trial and forever after conviction.
