Don't agree with the guy above me as far as God being "pretend", but...:-/ I'm sure they can afford to pay it out and keep passing the collection plate to "earn" it back.

It's God's money, not theirs. And wait, women being abused? This is news. I thought it was normally little boys? Wait til THEY come forward...

Unlike the boys, the girls, of which there are more than you can imagine, have not come forward for a variety of reasons. Pedophiles like to have sex with children, they do not discriminate. The RCC wants to label it a homosexual problem, of which they do have large numbers, but in all fairness, sex was pretty rampant with straight priests as well. We will never know how many married and unmarried women and young girls priests had sex with. Some was consentual but much was not. I think you are right, we haven't seen it all yet. The RCC is definitely going to feel its effects for however long the RCC organization exists.
