The Catholic Church is Evil

The news on the Catholic Church just keeps getting worse and worse. Now the previous Pope, John Paul II, is getting some media exposure of the worst kind.
From NPR News:
“As the Roman Catholic Church tries to defend Pope Benedict XVI from criticism over his handling of the clerical sex abuse scandal, the record of his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, is also getting attention. New questions are being raised about whether the most popular pope of the last century played a role in covering up cases of sex abuse.
When John Paul died five years ago, millions of faithful poured into Rome for his funeral, chanting, “Santo subito” or “Make him a saint now.” Just two months later, Benedict XVI waived the usual five-year waiting period and put the Polish-born pope on the fast track to sainthood.
But in recent weeks, allegations have surfaced that the late pope — or at least members of his inner circle — obstructed an investigation into Marcial Maciel Degollado, the Mexican founder of the Legion of Christ who had both molested young boys and fathered several children with different women.” Full story Here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=125788687
So now we have two Popes being criticized for covering up priestly sexual abuse. I wonder how many Popes down through history have done the same thing; I’ll bet it’s more than 1 or 2.
The damaging stories just keep coming, there seems to be no end. Ever since the first stories started breaking about priestly sexual abuse of young boy’s in the US, I have been saying that the problem will be found to be world-wide, and no doubt existed down throughout the long history of the Church—although a look into deep past history of abuse has not been followed yet.
I think the Catholic Church has lost all authority as a religion and a moral guide for humanity. They still resist airing out the dirty laundry they have accumulated over 1700+- years. They cannot be trusted with our children, they cannot be trusted as moral guides, and they cannot be trusted to do the right thing. The Church is dirty and in the corruptive clutches of evil men.

“According to some interpretations of St. Malachi’s vision, the Pope who succeeds Benedict XVI will be “Petrus Romanus” (Peter the Roman) the final Pope who will oversee the destruction of the Catholic Church.”
“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman), who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.”
