Some people are misusing this sad incident to devalue the sacred priesthood of catholic priests. They argue that they should be allowed to go for marriage.Is this a solution?? Such cases are more reported from the societies having marriages. So its too bad to comment like this on the priesthood of the catholic church. Though some incidents are reported, it is not a matter for generalization.This is a minority.99.9% does their life in a sacred manner. But, these problems not only exists within catholic priests, but also among other communities and religions where the marriage is allowed.
Secondly what happens now in this case is horrible. Pointing to a priest in these cases for what he may be totally unaware, is the biggest cruelty that a society can do to a priest. The parishioners, church and those who know the priest believes that he is innocent.But what happens is the third rated politics and marketing agendas of medias.Medical reports points to drowning..and no marks of physical tortures.Parents and relatives accepting that the girl has a serious mental problem of walking unconsciously in the midst of sleeping.Yet the medias insists that the priest killed her.
Why this case should be compared with Abhaya case, which has not yet given the verdict.Where is Fr. Benedict case now, The accused in mandhamaruthy case.which hit the scenario some decades ago. What was d enjoyment of d medias when he was sentenced to death by the judicial court. But later he was let free by the upper court and at last.The relatives of the murder confessed to him,,at the last stages of his life.
Accusing the priest for the present case is just like this.
