28. I don't think your first or second suggestion is going to do much

While they may be worthy suggestions for other reasons, the RCC's biggest problems are they have very little self-auditing and their primary interest is self-preservation.

Priests are revered within their parish simply because of their positions, and they have unfettered access to children. That kind of situation is going to be a magnet for predators. Doing away with pretending to be celibate and allowing women isn't going to change that. What they need is accountability and the culture which surrounds organized religion is counterproductive to that objective.
