    Sister Mary Chandy is to release her autobiography called `Swasthy` in which she describes the sordid secrets of sexual abuse of Catholics nuns by their male counterparts. Sr Mary left the Presentation Convent where she served for more than 5 decades and now takes care of 17 abandoned children. She says those who are unable to keep the vows of celibacy should be allowed to exit gently - makes sense.

    This is open secret...the primal instincts of man can be controlled only so much and almost everyone knows what happens behind those white gowns...it does not matter if he is a priest or a father or cardinal or even the pope.

    But will the book "allowed" to be published, considering the undue influence Church has on the Kerala State govt ? That is the question that needs to be answered.

    Already there is a book in Malayalam called `Amen –The Autobiography Of A Nun` published by Sister Jesme on similar lines. Time to time incidents are reported of goings on inside xtian organisations in Kerala such as the rape and murder of Sister Abhaya. I think Catholic Church should consider allowing their priests and nuns to marry or let them go if they desire. They are trying to suppress natural urges by making celibacy a condition.

    What she is about to reveal is nothing surprising.

    The book must be published. The christians must know about the clergy.

    They must be aware of the weaknesses of the system.

    I know of people who have been victims as well as those who have been parasites within the clergy.

    allow to marry and do the service - "deacons" as they are called will solve this issue. but, catholic church uses nuns as free work force. Italian influence from Christianity must be erased permanently. Eastern Christianity must be revived. the stereotype of Westernized "Christians" will also die with this.

    It is the Catholic Church where marriage is not allowed.

    The Anglican Church allows Priest to be married.

    Therefore, the issue is with the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches as they are known.

    They do, they are called Protestants. It is time for Catholics to convert to the modern teachings of Christ and move away from these archaic rituals steeped in pagan roots.
