Today’s question is a simple one:  Should there be a federal investigation into the Catholic Church at this time for playing Hide the Pedophile?

What other organized group, national or otherwise, has had such a proven history of permitting pedophilia in its ranks?  I suggest that if they were any other group (short of politicians), they would have been legally pilloried many years ago.

I don’t know enough about the legal system to understand if the RICO or similar act can be used but something should be done.  This goes way beyond the First Amendment – it’s clearly deceptive and criminal.  I am certain there are many legal complexities, as the organization is worldwide.

Thoughts?
