Predator Priests and Roman Catholic Church Corruption
In recent years, hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals have come forward claiming sexual abuse from priests in the Roman Catholic Church. Numerous priests have been identified. Sadly, rather than defrocking (removing from the priesthood) the priests, the Catholic Church has in most instances attempted to cover up the sexual abuse by transferring the offending priests to different parishes. The scandal and attempted cover-up continues to expand, reaching to the papacy itself.
