    I thought it was that the WORD of the pope is infallible, not what the pope actually does. Anyway, look back at history, the church has been FAR more scandalous than what has been brought up recently. Popes have had mistresses, been married, and I thought I remember from my AP Euro class that one pope is heavily suspected to have had a child by his own daughter. Things happen all over the world, its just that we called the priests on it. You cannot be so naive as to say that things like this only happen in America.

    Look at the stats, things mostly happen in America. Does that give you any indication whatsoever of what's going on with a society based on no morals?

    hahahha, so are you saying that someone without religion has no morals?
    That's funny. It's not up to the church to teach people morals, it's up to the parents. I learned more morals from Boy Scouts than from my seventeen years of church attendance.

    Having religion doesn't make anyone better of a person, it may enforce the weak minded to respect the defined morals of the church by threatening them with an enternity in the pits of hell, but it's up to the person to decide whether or not he will accept these morals.

    I never said anything of the sort at all. Morale has nothing to do with religion.

    True. I went off on a tangent.

    Anyways, the lack of morality in americans is still the fault of the parents AND NOT THE MEDIA.

    moral = something you live by
