So what's causing your indignation? And why aren't you howling for the heads of the other group?
If Priests adopted ritual castration from the moment they take their vows, there would most likely be far less violation of children, and perhaps a lot more thought given into such a serious pursuit.

Or for that matter, should all priests, as part of their doctrination into the priesthood, be castrated? Seems if you made that part of the program, you would save a lot of suffering for a lot of young boys. If they are never going to be allowed to be married, why not make them unics (sp?) and take away their sexual desires? Since we all know they are suppposed to have a calling and be able to fight off those urges, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work for a large number fo them.
I think the ones guilty of molesting young boys, should be castrated. Then, either let the new ones marry (as in, the new Pope should set this in motion) or if you're not going to let them marry, then castrate them as part of the program. Problem solved!!

Wouldn't it be better if priests were allowed to get married? let's stop the hypocrisy, shall we? priests are humans, and they should not be derived of the humans' most basic satisfactions.

No. Castration is barbaric form of punishment. Yes their crime is sick, but we become brutes if we start to caserate people. And of course what if they were innocent?
If anything jail these sods and let them rot.
