I believe it's changing now. As more who were molested come out in the open, more feel free TO come out, and that is why I believe we have just touched the tip of the problem. However I suggest that many who molested others will never be exposed, as family members will choose to protect the image of the family as being upstanding moral citizens with nothing to "hide."

You are right....I think also the word "molest" has such a broad and negative connotation that one does not see mitigating circumstances on the side of the "molester". Circumstances, temptation, carnality, accidental, intentions..., these all play a part in the issue of molestation.

In the area I live in, it is my belief that no less that 30% of children are molested incestuously. But a lot of this may be out of "curiosity". I think another 40% is done with intent....It is my opinion, that the more remote an area, the less law has effect, and for instance people living on islands are about 80% likely to be molested.

Sexual predators are everywhere, but in general, I think this is a tool of propagandists to put fear in the population, and keep them focused on something other than their own interests....

Federal prison authorities. in the USA say that 74% of inmates are catholic/protestants,. Less than 1 % are atheists.
Statistics claim that over 16% of of Americans are non religious. About 50 million and growing quickly.
Its obvious non religious people have higher moral standards than those claiming to be the moral authority.
Go figure!

Hiding Jews is a crime against the state of Germany.

In the US if you don't have money, you will go to jail.

Seems there are a lot of Christians without money....And a lot of non religious people not willing to go to jail for lack of money.

Money is the god of the State.

Well you are a christian and you have been in jail. I will add you to the totals.
Never been in jail. I follow the laws. I hope you learned your lesson.
Don't want to do the time, don't do the crime!
You don't have to be guilty of anything to end up in prison. That type of injustice has happened to more than a few people.

Total nonsense.
No version of the Gospel of Mark was inspired.
If it wasn't inspired by a god ... it was conspired by men.

I suggest that all theology from the start of religion, was conspired by men.

"There's a god right there in the clouds!"

"Where??? I don't see HIM."

"He's invisible to human eyes. But he's there."

"Well ... I don't how you know he's there, when you can't see him."

"Oh BELIEVE ME ... I KNOW!!!"

For those religions at that time, it was the center of the universe.
The Jews placed every bit as much value on the idea that they were a god's chosen few, as do the Christians that believe they are the same god's chosen few ... and as do the Muslims, who also depend that they are the one-god's chosen few.

Those in religion are all game-players ... hoping that they alone hit the jackpot of eternal bliss in a supposed after-life.

It would be nice if those stuck in religion would stop being so needy and so greedy and find something better to do with the time they have on earth ... which just "might" be the only time they have at all.

According to the last major revision to the Gospel of John, the addition of the Pericope Adulterae, Jesus wrote with his finger on the ground when challenging the scribes and .
So the "scribes" wrote about Jesus writing with his finger on the ground ... yet Jesus couldn't write even one word in his own hand-writing?

By believing such nonsense, you've been taken for quite a religious ride.

As do all of us on forums you continually deflect to defend your own opinion.

You are not now in a church where other believers pat you on the back and tell you that what you believe will guarantee eternal bliss in an afterlife.

We are on the front lines in the reality of Spiritual warfare.
And you are aligned to the savior on the front lines ... RIGHT???

All of you Jesus-thumpers are CERTAIN that a Jew agrees that Christianity is royal.

I suggest that even had Jesus lived ... his loyalty would be aligned ONLY to Judaism. And as for royalty ... he couldn't even write his own name, and according to the Catholics, he never knew of Catholicism until he met up with Catholic John the Baptist and was initiated in the river Jordon into Catholicism BY John.

Had Jesus lived, he was not a leader ... he was a follower who left a prestigious position as a Jewish Rabbi to in turn follow John and the other Catholics.

Yet NO WHERE in Jewish literature did Jesus have any credentials as a Jewish rabbi. NO WHERE.

It was all a made-up story by Catholic church-fathers who compiled the anti-Semitic new testament.

Not that I spent any long periods in jail...I have been there and do know that those statistics are bunk. For one, the prison population can't be put in any religious category. The majority may say they are "Christian". And their birth certificates may say "Baptist" or "Catholic", but their mindset is far from either of those. Most are so full of pride, they may as well be classified as "Pagan". The God they worship is money, power and so on. Sad but true. "Atheist" would be a more accurate label than "Christianity", because many re-designed God so may times it doesn't resemble anything but me, me me. Basically 'no god but self'.
Jail is just awful. I can't describe it. Really. Imagine going #2 in the toilet everyday in front of 3 or 4 people. There were no stalls. The toilet was in the middle of the floor for extra humiliation.
You are arrested, handcuffed placed into custody hauled off to jail, you won't tell us why, you get to jail and you immediately start complaining that the washrooms don't have privacy cubicles, the food is terrible and they placed you with atheists.

Where did you think you were, at the holiday inn??

...... After significant time in jail you are either let out or you escape creating several alias names that you have told us CLAY, LIAM, WILLIAM, CLAYPOOL, WILL,. Next you buy a computer start posting on this forum putting me down because I don't live like you.

ARE. YOU. KIDDING!!!?

...A criminal with a record telling others they are wrong!!!

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

Nah, I'm probably not a very good representative of Jesus. I'm not terrible but I need allot of improvement. I don't claim to be specially called to Ministry. Still, I know enough to know that certain people are preaching a false gospel and they do a horrible job of representing the Lord. He claims to be a Deacon, June. You know enough about the Gospel Jesus taught.... Does he resemble anything like Him?

you WILL ... in the hopes of converting others to your own specific religion.

I suggest that you believe it's your duty to Jesus to convert others to your religion so they can ALSO share in your eternal bliss ... RIGHT???

And now you will probably deflect back to me with the old regurgitated story that only GOD knows who is saved.

Because humans are sexual animals children are also curious.

I can remember at a very young age playing with a little boy my own age in a tree hut in the woods. He was showing me his penis and testicles with the promise that I would thereafter show him my pride and joy. Fortunately for me, his mother called that they were leaving for home, or I would have had to fulfill my part of the original agreement.

<quoted text>Mike, all you do is post about priests molesting. Makes me wonder about you. I wonder if you were a priest at one time who was caught molesting and now serves time. Many prisons let inmates use the computers now. Or you are a mental patient. using a computer. I think your nuts. My Church has dealt with the problem, Pope Benedict has dismissed 385 priests. You pointed out he did nothing. I think you are sick. What happened in Chicago was many years ago. You don't need to post anymore about it. Why don't you concentrate on school boards who insist on letting teachers who view porn at school stay on and keep on teaching. this is in public schools . Or all the Orthodox priests, the rabbis and ministers who have been caught recently. Naw, you have to focus on priests and what they did twenty or more years ago. I guess that's when you were caught, right?
What happened in Chicago we are just learning about now, because the former bishops hid 6,000 pages of secret documents for 25 years. Who does that? Criminals. This week for the first time victims finally get their day in court with justice and catholics in Chicago find out that perverted priests had served in 60% of the 250 parishes in the diocese.........And you are OK with that?
Did you read any of the impact statements from the victims? No you didn't because you would rather defend the guilty clergy and bishopa
Instead of the victims.
What does that say about you?
You are an ASS !!!
