What many here don't want to admit;

"In a 1984 survey, 38.6 percent of ministers reported sexual contact with a church member, and 76 percent knew of another minister who had had sexual intercourse with a parishioner.[xiii] In the same year, a Fuller Seminary survey of 1,200 ministers found that 20 percent of theologically “conservative” pastors admitted to some sexual contact outside of marriage with a church member. The figure jumped to over 40 percent for “moderates”; 50 percent of “liberal” pastors confessed to similar behavior.[xiv]

In 1990, in a study by the Park Ridge Center for the Study of Health, Faith and Ethics in Chicago, it was learned that 10 percent of ministers said they had had an affair with a parishioner and about 25 percent admitted some sexual contact with a parishioner.[xv] Two years later, a survey by Leadership magazine found that 37 percent of ministers confessed to having been involved in “inappropriate sexual behavior” with a parishioner.[xvi]

In a 1993 survey by the Journal of Pastoral Care, 14 percent of Southern Baptist ministers said they had engaged in “inappropriate sexual behavior,” and 70 percent said they knew a minister who had had such contact with a parishioner.[xvii] Joe E. Trull is co-author of the 1993 book, Ministerial Ethics, and he found that “from 30 to 35 percent of ministers of all denominations admit to having sexual relationships—from inappropriate touching to sexual intercourse—outside of marriage.”[xviii]

According to a 2000 report to the Baptist General Convention in Texas,“The incidence of sexual abuse by clergy has reached ‘horrific proportions.’” It noted that in studies done in the 1980s, 12 percent of ministers had “engaged in sexual intercourse with members” and nearly 40 percent had “acknowledged sexually inappropriate behavior.” The report concluded that “The disturbing aspect of all research is that the rate of incidence for clergy exceeds the client-professional rate for physicians and psychologists.”[xix] Regarding pornography and sexual addiction, a national survey disclosed that about 20 percent of all ministers are involved in the behavior.[xx]"

"..in the authoritative work by Penn State professor Philip Jenkins, Pedophiles and Priests, it was determined that between .2 and 1.7 percent of priests are pedophiles. The figure among the Protestant clergy ranges between 2 and 3 percent.[xxii]"

Really? You mean only saw what you wanted to see again instead of the truth? Funny how you and LTM never see things but if your name is in a post you always see that. lol There is more, but keep your head in the sand and ignore all that was already posted so you can remain an ignoramous and jump in bed with anyone that will slander the church.

Reformation.com lists allegations involving 838 Protestant ministers who have been accused of sexually abusing children:

147 Baptist pastors

251 fundamentalist/evangelical pastors

140 Anglican/Episcopalian Ministers

38 Lutheran Ministers

46 Methodist Ministers

19 Presbyterian Ministers

197 misc. Church Ministers

Katoliko, a Roman Catholic website, publishes excerpts from various media sources about abuse by Protestant clergy, church staff, and volunteer workers in an attempt to balance the attacks on the Catholic Church. See: http://www.katoliko.com/

The Cyber Grotto of the Modern Church of Satan, perhaps reacting to false claims of Satanic Ritual Abuse of children during the late 20th century, reported a group of "Christian Sex Crimes" in 2006-OCT.

Multiply.com listed a lenghty list of "Evvangelical [sic] Ministers who 'love' the children of the world" in their journal titled "Christian Biblical Errancy Debate" at: http://wheresjesus.multiply.com/

A listing of many additlonal allegations of child molestation is contained in "THE CHRIST OF GOD IS MAGNIFICAL's Blog" on MySpace.

No Catholics here;

"In the last three years, an average of 23 new articles each day have appeared in secular media sources revealing sexual abuse allegations arising in Protestant churches in the United States. Protestant denominations have been tempted to call sexual abuse a "Catholic problem"; this is simply not true. Within the past eight years, verdicts, judgments, or settlements exceeding hundreds of millions of dollars have been levied against Protestant churches for sexual abuse allegations arising from children participating in ministry programs."

http://www.buildingchurchleaders.com/articles...

"One of the most striking aspects of the Protestant clergy sex abuse pattern is that most people don't realize it is a pattern. The Catholic Church has taken a well deserved beating in the courts and in the court of public opinion as former altar boys, orphans and ordinary parishioners come forward with appalling stories of sex abuse. Yet equally egregious violations by Protestant clergy fail to generate the same level of outrage. Why?"

Why do we largely overlook the horrific pattern of Protestant pedophilia and sexual exploitation? Here are a few factors to consider:

The Catholic Church is easier to think of as a monolithic entity. That means it is easier for the press to cohere the abuse incidents into a single story and our brains to grok it. The idea of one big conspiracy appeals to us: "The Church" did it and then covered it up.

The centralized hierarchy of Catholicism makes Catholic offenders easier to sue and guarantees deep pockets. The lawsuits in turn both generate their own news cycle and bring victims out of the closet.

Since most Americans are Protestants, the Catholic sex abuse scandal is a story about "them." Protestant Pedophilia is a story about "us," which makes it less gratifying and more uncomfortable."

If you don't like the light... being shined into the darkness...

then come out of it, and step into the light yourself.
Speaking of darkness....

"Another part of Pentecostalism’s dark side is rampant sexual and financial scandals. From early Pentecostal leader Charles Parham to Aimee Semple McPherson to Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart, the movement has been wracked by charges of misconduct, many of which have been substantiated by investigators.

In recent days a new scandal has been brewing over the conduct of Atlanta-based megachurch pastor Earl Paulk. Allegedly the Pentecostal bishop-pastor of the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit engaged in sex with several parishioners over a period of years. One accuser claims that he told her sex with him was necessary to revitalize his ministry and that he also lured her to engage in sex with a visiting pastor. Another woman brought a lawsuit claiming Paulk had sex with her when she was a teenager. Although Paulk has denied such charges and so far no verdicts have been delivered, the number and weight of the accusations add to the impression that not only Paulk but Pentecostalism has a problem with scandals.

Other Christian movements have suffered similar scandals, but Pentecostalism seems particularly rife with them. Insiders know some of the reasons. Deeply embedded within the Pentecostal movement’s ethos is a cult of personality; charismatic leaders are put on pedestals above accountability and are often virtually worshiped by many of their followers.

Too few courses in basic ethics are required in Pentecostal colleges (perhaps because many Pentecostals, especially older ones, assume that being Spirit-filled guarantees right behavior), and too many pastors handle the churches’ money and travel alone without having to account for their whereabouts or activities. It’s the movement’s own dirty little secret: sexual promiscuity and financial misconduct are rampant within its ranks, and little is done about this unless a scandal becomes public.

Several Pentecostal denominations have instituted policies to handle cases of pastoral moral turpitude and financial misconduct, but they have found those policies hard to enforce. At least one Pentecostal denomination has a policy that forbids investigation of charges that are more than five years old. One can only wonder why the leaders decided on that limit."

I almost came on this forum again (well, I did for this post anyway) but, the moment I logged on, I saw mike talking about child sexual abuse again. Between Free and him, there were 43 posts in 8hrs about child sexual abuse so far. There was more yesterday. By the time this day is over... they will have accumulated over 100 posts just about child sexual abuse.
Now, i think its been fairly proven that the Church has made great strides to correct this evil. And statistically it was never more rampant in the CC then any other group. The so called 'cover up' is proven to be greatly exaggerated by people who wish the destruction of the Church for other reasons - not related to child sexual abuse.
It would be good to continue the great theological discussions with other Christians like, Preston, Pad and Chuck.
But child sexual abuse talk 24/7 feels like I'm participating in a couple peoples psychological issues. Its bizarre. I mean, when this week is over, there will be over 500 posts from Mike and free about this! Who does that??
anyway, God bless you Preston.
Frick and Frack are attention junkies. They love it when you answer them. They love it when ANYONE answers them. They're both atheists who make derogatory remarks about Jesus, so whatever they say about the One True Catholic Church founded by none other than Jesus Christ Himself, well, it's just an extension of their hatred of Him. After all, they both want prayer kept out of the public square and think same sex marriage is peachy keen. Who speaks out the loudest against such immorality? Who advocates the most ardently for religious freedom? Who isn't afraid to boldly say "God" in public? The Catholic Church, that's who!! The pentecostals run and hide. They'd sell their souls to the devil first. Wait...from what I see here they already have!

Kind of odd how Kay and Confrinting jump into bed with people like that. On second thought, it's not odd at all and perfectly in keeping with their morals and character (or lack thereof). Being ignorant, jealous bigots themselves, they have a lot in common with those two jackasses. Don't let them get you down. Just scroll right past their posts. Most people do.

Why not give it a try? God knows its not working the way it is now.
A new approach might be all we need.
Today in america 40% of women run households by themselves. Its not a mans world anymore. In a few years you will see a woman President, we have many congresswomen, female mayors, police officers, female firefighters, doctors, lawyers, nurses, bus drivers, garbage men, airplane pilots.
Its not 1954 anymore.
on the obverse.....

Single Dads with custody is also becoming more of a commonplace, where it used to be - by far - only woman with custody.

The world is realizing that there are many "deadbeat Moms" out there, just as well as, the "DB dads".

"According to the latest single-parent statistics reported in Unmarried and Single Americans Week Sept. 18-24, 2011, 11.7 million single parents were living with their children in 2010. Of those reported, 1.8 million were custodial single dads. In America, 3.4 percent of children live with their father only, and 4.1 percent of American children live with neither parent."
http://www.times-standard.com/guest_opinion/c...

This link also shows a 300% increase in father-only families from 1959 thru 1989.
www.irp.wisc.edu/publications/focus/pdfs/foc1...

Although I truly believe - that all people are created equal - although, I was once a single dad raiding four kids.....the absent mother (or even step-mother), can be critical to a child's life.

To this day, I do not know how my children have realized the impacts to their lives, or even if they ever will.

If you were wondering about my point, it is - not all women wear halos and are "righteous".

"You name me a denomination and I'll give you a case," Philip Jenkins told The Catholic Standard & Times, Philadelphia archdiocesan newspaper. "Some (denominations) with huge problems include Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Buddhists, Jews, Baptists, Pentecostals, Episcopalians -- you name them."

One of the most extreme cases of clergy sex abuse in U.S. history involved a Pentecostal minister named Tony Leyva, who molested several hundred boys in the 1980s, Jenkins said. But few Americans have heard of Leyva, he added, while some molesters who are former Catholic priests have become household names."

"Jenkins said that although the term "pedophile priests" came into usage in the mid-1980s, the problem should have more properly been called "pedophile pastors."

The "pedophile priests" phrase "defines the issue and makes it far more limited than it really is," he added. "In fact, most of the clergy who misbehave are not priests.

"My view is there is no evidence that Catholic clergy offend at a higher or lower rate than other clergy or than nonclergy that deal with children," Jenkins said. "There's no evidence either way. If somebody says,'Well, it's obvious, they do,' I say,'Fine, give me the evidence,' and the evidence isn't there."

Patricia Kelly of Kelly Counseling and Consulting in Glen Mills, Pa., agrees that other denominations have at least as high an incidence of sexual misconduct problems as the Catholic Church.

A number of years ago, Kelly said, she participated in a treatment program for clergy with sex abuse problems. "Most of the clergy that were there were not Catholic clergy," she said. "They were Protestant clergy. Most clergy that abuse are ministers, but the (Catholic) Church is sexy. It sells papers."

I am pretty sure that the Boyscouts and girlscouts is run exclusively by Priest and Nuns that can be the only possible explanation for rampant abuse. lol Gee, but what about Ireland. Wow, imagine a country that is largely Catholic and intwined with every aspect of society having some evil people within it and finding abuse. A true shocker. More proof its just a Catholic thing. NOT!

Ok so Mikey gets his way and the church disappears then poof the problem would be gone. Its beyond a stupid argument. I would say that you people hate children and with good reason. If you want to zero in that its an exclusive Catholic issue, then you ignore reality and do nothing. I know there are decent Protestants but those in here who beat this weak drum barely pass as a human being.
