<quoted text>
To generalize "mothers" as you've just tried to do is a lie.
Many mothers have/are "raised/raising holy hell".
Let's not forget them...
Many mothers have taken their children out of public schools altogether.
Many mothers "deprogram" and teach within their homes after school. I am one of those...
I've also "cleaned out" a couple schools of many corrupt people using legal channels.
Many mothers have been very vocal about "children being left behind" and the abysmal "teaching" that goes on in many "schools".
Many children haven't been destroyed by drugs, gangs, or violence.
Many children live happy, wholesome lives.
Many children go to college.
Many mothers have been voting against and been very vocal about "illegal" immigration and the the diseases, crime, job loss, etc that goes with it.
Many mother care very much.
Thank God for them. Unfortunately, most mothers don't do anything, and some don't even care.
Just as the Catholic church moved priests around, Protestant churches cover up crimes against children too.

Also, some churches aren't even Christian.
Is your church helping to reward violence against children by insuring with Guide One Ins.? If your minister has excuses, or claims not to know about this, then the synod, etc. is protecting child abusers.
Synods and other organizations are taking the lion's share of donations. Have you ever investigated the number of organizations that claim to be Christian while they exist mainly to enrich themselves? Cut them off or get out of those churches.

Is your church only sending out 1 or 2 token missionaries, just to look good, while keeping almost all of your donations for your entertainment, or doing very little to help others with your free labor?
Churches should be cheap buildings on a little bit of land, because most of the money was used to save souls and lives.

Churches are failures because the leaders aren't even Christians. They're politicians and professional money-makers.
They exist to glorify themselves, not the Lord.

Thank you, Hmm, for posting these things.
People need to get out of fantasyland and see organized religion for the scam it is.
I've found that Baptists are the worst of Protestant churches, but they work to sound the most religious.
What set the fight against child abuse back was a court case in which the Baptists committed hundreds of felonies to win. Not one person was prosecuted.
So, child abuse continues because the legal system is made up of career criminals.
Parents have truly failed their children.
To fight for them,(next post)

All those other criminals are not representing themselves as emissaries of a god, are they? Are they spiritual leaders of their communities? Have children been taught to do as they say? Do they speak for god?

The emissaries of a god really should be the last ones sticking it to a toddler, wouldn't you think?

What a terrible indictment is provided by this list of unsavory " born again " Christians. That these misfits often condemn Catholic clergy for immorality is a gall, when one sees them committing similar ofences. To me the difference is that the Catholic Church can kick out immoral clergy, whilst nobody has authority to kick out a pastor off an independent congregation, who is answerable to nobody.
