To be fair, the Catholic church (and other denominations as well) actually do a lot to help the poor. It's just not talked about nearly as often or as loudly as other issues. For every pedophiliac priest or bishop who rails against homosexuality, there are another half dozen who are providing food and shelter to the homeless or building schools and wells in the third world. It's a shame that the good they do is always overshadowed by the bad.
