Fact: There are 103 schools listed on the Archdiocese of St. Paul's web site which only covers a 12 county area.<quoted text>
How am I going around the issues? Because I'm asking for clarifications and specifics? I'm not going "around" any issue, but I am asking people here who are launching attacks to be accurate in what they're referring to.
You're changing the topic. The specific issue was the orphanage on Randolph and Warwick that you brought up. Not to orphanages in other cities or other countries.
Where are you getting this information from? Please cite your source so I can look at the numbers.
Furthermore, you need to speak about percentages, not quantity alone. If there are 5 sexual predators found in your church group out of a total of 10 orphanages but 10 sexual predators in the Catholic Church out of 1000 orphanages, it's really the percentages involved that tell us anything.
Fact: There are 54 Lutheran Schools listed by the Missouri Synod for the entire state of Minnesota.
Fact: There are 2 Jewish Day Schools in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
Regarding St. Joseph's Orphanage I believe it closed and was torn down in the late 50's, but not sure about exact date. I grew up around Randolph and Snelling so I was very familiar with that structure.

Hence the statement "food for thought".
food for thought meaning:
(n) anything that provides mental stimulus for thinking
