Roman Catholic Answer

Catholics are like everyone else, they are children of Adam, and thus have a fallen nature. Evil, as defined by St. Thomas Aquinas is the absence of good (light a shadow is the absence of light - it is nothing positive). From that point of view, Catholics are in a much better position to not be evil than most others as they have the fullness of Christ's Church to teach and lead them.
