I know of many who have left the Church because Priests have used the pulpit for political ends.

The Catholic Answers

I do not think you know of many. In any case, if some Priest did so offend, that would not justify anyone in giving up his religion. We have a duty to offer public worship to God. The faults of the clergy could not be a reason, they could at best be an excuse for another’s neglect of duty. It is a foolish argument to say, “The Priest does not serve God as he should, therefore I shall not serve God as I should.” Each must fulfill his duties to God no matter what others do. But, as a matter of fact, I deny that Priests as a body offend in this way.
