Why do so many people believe that the word of their priests and/or ministers are


akin to a divine revelation? So many people believe that priests and/or ministers can do no wrong. They believe that these people are God Almighty in whatever they state. What these priests and ministers say, such people automatically follow them with any independent thought!

    Thank you Rad Man! Many parents, particularly in the Roman Catholic Church, believe that nuns and priests are God on Earth. They believe that nuns and priests DO NO WRONG and ARE NOT GUILTY OF ABUSE.

    No Christian group I've ever been part of thinks that way. Maybe the very young or the very naive, but not the body as a whole. What groups do you personally know that are like that?
