Corruption In Holy Places

With all the trouble in the Roman Priesthood in what seems to be worldwide corruption many people are upset and should be. The Roman church is not the only one to suffer from leadership corruptions most every religious group has had to deal with it from time to time. Humans in positions of power sometimes yield to temptation.
When Jesus ran the money changers and dealers in sacrificial animals out of the temple during that first Holy Week the evidence points to the Levites - priestly families - who were involved. They had been accused of cheating people many times but they were people in power. I think that the common people cheered when Jesus did that.
It is sad that so many faithful clergy are tarnished by a few corrupted clergy.
