The High Price of Celibacy

New figures released Thursday by the nation's Roman Catholic bishops show the unrelenting toll of the clergy sex abuse crisis: 783 new credible claims last year, most of which date back decades, and costs of nearly $467 million.

This is a good indicator that celibacy doesn't work and only breeds disfunction.

Interesting posts, howller. It was fun to find your blog today.

I did want to suggest that those statistics could mean many things, and do not necessarily argue against celibacy. How many priests are able to properly remain chaste?
