Expect obama to invite the Saudis in to fund replacement madrasas, and then have them fund cash payments for families who send them their 'lil jihadis. The only vaccuum not abhorred is the one formed behind an HE pressure wave.

Hard to believe people don't want to put their kids in schools run by perverted, pedophile priests. What are they THINKING?

No, he's getting factual. And you are too inept to spar with him, or anyone else for that matter.

Consider the statistics: In accordance with a requirement of President Bush's No Child Left Behind Act, in 2002 the Department of Education carried out a study of sexual abuse in the school system.
Hofstra University researcher Charol Shakeshaft looked into the problem, and the first thing that came to her mind when Education Week reported on the study were the daily headlines about the Catholic Church.
"[T]hink the Catholic Church has a problem?" she said. "The physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests."
So, in order to better protect children, did media outlets start hounding the worse menace of the school systems, with headlines about a "Nationwide Teacher Molestation Cover-up" and by asking "Are Ed Schools Producing Pedophiles?"
No, they didn't. That treatment was reserved for the Catholic Church, while the greater problem in the schools was ignored altogether.

Only Catholic children, and only because they are free at last from the pain and sexual humiliation inflicted on them by their priests.

A) I don't know.
B) I don't know.

Regardless, the answers to those questions don't change the fact that for decades, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church systematically covered up sexual abuse of thousands of children perpetrated by priests.
