I grew up with an agnostic father and a Catholic mother.That explains why the recent revelations of children's molestation by hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in six Pennsylvania dioceses dismay and horrify me.More than 300 clergymen carried out the abuse over several decades, beginning in the '50s.The grand jury investigated abuse allegations in dioceses that serve more than half of Pennsylvania's 3.2 million Catholics.The two-year-long grand jury investigation found that some 300 priests had abused over 1,000 children over a period of 70 years. In Chile, however, where also there were nearly 80 priests accused of abuse of children, Pope Francis demanded the resignation of all the bishops that were involved in cases of cover-up.More than anything, however, the Catholic Church should purge its cadres of abusing priests, and have them all go through profound psychological testing.
