It is certainly true that there are numerous inconsistencies in all religious belief systems. As to Christianity and Catholicism specifically there seems to be a high incidence of pedophilia. Members of the Catholic clergy, especially priests, seem to have a high propensity to commit this crime. Living a celibate existence is no excuse to commit these atrocities. But what really blows my hair back is that these pathetic individuals who fondle and abuse children and young men do so with the full realization that their god is watching and cognizant of their actions. Having a sound understanding of there sworn to moral code, aka the Bible, they know their behavior is unacceptable in the "Lord's eyes." If I truly believed in this supernatural power I sure as hell wouldn't entertain any thoughts of pedophilia since retribution would be a certainty. Standing in front of the most powerful entity in existence and having to explain my immoral and criminal behavior would not be a good thing I'm thinking. I can only come to the conclusion that these priests REALLY REALLY don't believe they have anything to worry about. Why? More than likely they actually don't believe in the whole god thing themselves. They live a lie and give lip service to the flock. No pun intended.
