Mathew was not too well liked because of his thievery when he was called. No absorption time by the community to let the horror sink in. Our Lord was audacious to many. Initially Paul must have had families asking where their children were when he was around. Talk about crimes against children. Betraying disloyal families to the high priests also had many families, including children, candidates for the beasts in the Roman forum. Mary Magdalene put her vice behind her and went on to offer her life in service to our lord and winning over many converts. So where do you want to start? OT? David had his commander killed so he can have a roll in the sack with his wife. He was forgiven and still remained king.

If one is told to "sin no more", then he no longer can commit crimes. Many trusted Christ and took the challenge to dare to be different.

Our religion is filled with changed people, and we are all about change.

We are all about change,unfortunately the widespread scandals of the past two decades have created their own effects with respect to who can and who cannot be employed at the Church.
