Do you think the Roman Catholic Church can survive much longer? I’m talking about the now worldwide expose of child abuse by priests and all the cover ups. How can any sane adult let this ...

Yes, the Catholics will survive. They may need to allow the clergy to marry. Asking a male not to have sex and expect them to follow those rules is a hard act to follow. Sexuality is a normal human behavior and when surpressed you are going to have problems. However, the child abuse must be stopped and those priests who are abusing children must be held accountable. I believe the Catholic Church will eventually put a stop to this. The Protestants have their share of problems as well. Look at the TV evangelists. Most have gotten in trouble with women , greed, and the like. Sin, is a human condition . However, redemption is available for those who ask. Welcome to life. We all need to get back to the basics to refresh our souls. Maybe some day, our Priests will be allowed to marry. Things are changing.
