The child abuse scandal in the Catholic Church stirred the emotions of the Amanpour audience.  The majority felt celibacy was not conducive for the priests in the Catholic Church because it propelled them to act on their physical instincts at “some point in life.”  According to most viewers, the continued claims of child molestation publicly known throughout the years have been few, compared to the real statistics of these “despicable acts” against children.  Overall, the audience expressed extreme disappointment over the decision the Church took to hide these incidents instead of legally prosecuting the offenders.

Mary Kadesa The catholic church is a big figure in the history of christianism,I think celibaty was abig mistake and that is the cause of this scandals.

Abimbola Ololade Olutobi i have always thought that catholic celibacy is sheer hypocrisy.Except a man is castrated,sexual feelings are inevitable.it is worse for people who have once had sex before becoming priests or nuns.

The power of combining art and social media highlighted Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei as the free speech pioneer in Asia for some in the Amanpour audience.  His vociferous style propagated courage for some, although these same viewers commented there was a fine line between daring and insensitive speech and in the case of the latter, it could instigate violence and cause anarchy.

Brian Tilley In the short period of time that we have had access to these forms of communication these social medias have shown to have a great impact.However,in regards to what impact they will have in communicating with our govt., as Kasiva asked, will they willing to listen?They may find that they( the govt.) have no choice, at least in some countries.

Ricardo Kosche I think it would make sense everwhere. The point is probably that it is not a very good idea everwhere because of safety concerns. But in a democracy social media is definitely a good thing to remember governments or other authorities who they should work for.
