They have been removed from the priesthood. In the past, the universal means to dealing with this was transfer, but the bishops council said "this is a bad idea -- they will just do it again somewhere else." which has happened in fact. So they began removing them -- many arrested and others in extensive counseling outside of the priesthood. But if you are against the Church for this reason, you should be this venomous against many other institutions, especially since they continued to practice this means of dealing with abuses. I don't mean this arrogantly, but it is important for one to do his research before he holds a specific position against a specific issue. Had you done your homework, you wouldn't have made this trite argument. Rather, you should have explained how the Catholic Church is evil because it would never have accepted Pope Alexander VI as bishop of Rome. With all of his scandals and theft and greed, how could a Church welcome that? THAT should have been your answer...but also, that's a bad argument too, and one which can be explained, and HAS been explained as well. I'm only suggesting reaching for top-shelf arguments, not bottom-shelf ones.
