I wonder if this is one of those schools that gives its students laptops? There are schools in the area who have a wireless access point in almost every classroom. I had a friend who would bring his own laptop in, knock out the access point (not entirely sure how), and just man in the middle everyone in the room when they tried to reconnect to the router. Bam, every single kids password, including any teachers/administrator who also tried to reconnect. He got kicked out of the first school for changing grades (A to F will do that). But at the second school he never got caught, just change. Technology is great, but these schools don't do a very good job teaching their students how to use it safely.

Being raised Catholic by French/Irish parents, and attending a private Catholic school for years, I like to think I have a pretty good handle on their current beliefs, and I can assure you Mary is not worshiped as a Goddess. Important yes, but she is not considered more powerful then any other Saint. Also I firmly believe the Catholic Church's rise was a response to vacuum left by the collapse of the Roman Empire. It simply evolved as a power structure in that time period. It was run by politicians, men who craved power. They corrupted much of it, with many issues persisting to this day. I honestly believe the members of it that have committed crimes should be punished under the laws of the area they live in. So while I agree with your opinion of violent abuses, I must disagree strongly with your implied causation, when it is simply a case of correlation.
