Form a breakaway Catholic Church that may later re-join or indeed stay independant, one not riddled with Princes of the Church and there palaces, it
has happened before it will happen again and there have always been corrupt priests, indeed for as long as there has been religion organized or
In this case I am certain they know what is going on and for so very many priests to quit the church in disgust if the Vatican does not do something
about there concern's then it show's the level of entrenched corruption among the established clergy and there so called Princes of the Church, AKA
Many Bishop's are actually decent and god fearing men I have to point out but there have always been corrupt and even a time when those positions
were for sale, indeed that also included the papacy for a very long and dark time in the Church history and that is how such as the Borgia gained
But for all those hypocrites there have always also been the St Martin of Assisi paragon of christian virtue type individual's whom espoused poverty

is itself very much still alive and many DO stick to the teaching's of Christ.

This is am American page and so a form of self critique but it applied to every country, every culture in Christendom and indeed all church's.
Look at all those pastor's in the US whom spout anti socialist lies and corrupt the word of God such as JHM whom actually used his church fund's to
pay off his ex wife's settlement for example or others on the TV show's that are actually mutli millionaires from all the donation's they get which in
fact should entirely be used on the poor, especially the poor of the church which is how the first church's were intended to work.
