http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/12/15/ad ... ency-plea/ I know that some folks say that domestic abuse is linked to being the victim or witnessing it as a child. But leniency? Does that mean he didn't know right from wrong? My other thought is that the Catholic Church really has to get rid of their prohibition on women and married priests. Having a few women around would clean up their act, and since we are all sexual beings by nature, I think the policy attracts folks with a different agenda than simply serving God. BTW, I was raised Catholic and went 12 years to a Catholic school. My grandmother pushed hard for me to go to seminary, but ultimately I refused when I had to choose between serving God and finding a wife (the natural state of man IMO). So now I have a wonderful wife, and study medieval religion as a part of my dissertation.
