Punish Pedophile Priests
This petition had 64 supporters
In recent years, hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals have come forward claiming sexual abuse from priests in the Roman Catholic Church. Numerous "pedophile priests" have been identified. Sadly, rather than defrocking the priests (removing from the priesthood), and holding these rapists accountable by letting them serve jail time, the Catholic Church has in most instances attempted to cover up the sexual abuse by transferring the offending priest(s) to different parishes. The scandal and attempted cover-up continues to expand, reaching all the way to the papacy itself.
Whatever the cause of the sexual abuse in the church, pedophile priests should be arrested and punished just as any other pedophile would be. No one, not even the Church, is above the law, and they shouldn't be treated as such. Aside from the pedophiles themselves, anyone covering up or, by negligence, enabling pedophilia in the church should be also be punished.
