The Abuse Plague Is Universal
Dec 5, 2012
George Weigel
A startling sexual abuse scandal recently broke out in Great Britain. The villain was the late Sir Jimmy Savile, a celebrated (if talent-free) BBC disc jockey and children’s TV-show host who, it turns out, serially abused young women for four decades—perhaps as many as a thousand girls, according to investigators from Scotland Yard, one of the fourteen police jurisdictions digging into his crimes. Yet Savile’s demonic behavior, according to Mark Steyn, made a chilling kind of sense, given our cultural moment:

For an ice-cold loner of limited social skills, Savile networked very efficiently. If celebrity is being famous for being famous, he took it to the next reductio: He was celebrated for being celebrated, a friend of policemen and politicians.... There’s a particularly cringe-worthy photo from the Highland Games of the Prince of Wales beaming with delight as he spots his pal approaching. His Royal Highness is wearing a kilt, Sir Jimmy a tartan version of his trademark tracksuit. What 12-year-old staggering from the dressing room would want to take on a confidant of palace and police?

Wherever he is now, I doubt the yodeling grotesque cares about his exposure. It seems to me he was a man who lived principally for sex—prodigious amounts of anonymous, aberrant sex—and he concluded very rationally that contemporary celebrity in an infantilized culture was the perfect cover.

As police investigations into this predatory goon intensified, another controversy emerged: What did the BBC know about Sir Jimmy Savile, sexual abuser, and when did it know it? The current Director General of the BBC, testifying before a Select Committee of the House of Commons, had this to say about one of his network’s former stars and his crimes:

So far as I have been able to tell, Mr. Savile prosecuted his disgusting activities in a manner that was very successfully and skillfully concealed. Experts in pedophile behavior have pointed out that this is often the case.... People build long-range plans to put them in contact with their targets. These things are institutionally, it seems, very difficult to deal with.

Now imagine what the New York Times (and indeed every other newspaper in America) would have written in 2002, or since, if an American bishop had said that about a serial sex abuser in his presbyterate.

While the Savile case was breaking, reports of large-scale sexual abuse in Boy Scout troops were being released by court order. Those crimes, plus the extensive (if largely ignored) research on sexual abuse in U.S. public schools, plus heart-rending accounts of children sold into sex slavery around the world, make clear that sexual assault on the young is a universal plague, not a disorder peculiar to any profession or institution.

That hard fact does not in any way excuse clerical sexual predation; nor do the facts about this plague absolve bishops who were malfeasant in their responsibilities as shepherds, or who trusted to psychology more than moral theology in making their decisions. But the facts—and the selective way they are dealt with in too much of the mainstream media—do suggest that the story line declaring the Catholic Church a uniquely perverse institution is a lie; those who perpetrate it are either ignorant bigots, or people with agendas other than the protection of young people, or both.

The Church, however, must always hold itself to a stricter standard. That is why the failure to make a full public accounting of the depredations of Father Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ, is a grave mistake on the part of both the Legion and the Holy See—as is the failure of both the Legion and the Vatican to ask a very hard question: Is the community Maciel founded, and manipulated to facilitate his crimes, a work of God? No one can or should doubt that individual Legionary vocations to the priesthood are gifts of God; the fruits of those vocations testify to their authenticity. But the Legion itself? Surely a religious community, and the Holy See, should be more self-critical and transparent than the BBC.

NICE TRY DEFLECTING AWAY FROM THE TOPIC OF THIS FORUM WHICH IS YOUR CCHURHC IS THE ONLY CHURCH.

this comedian doesnt claim that he is the ONLY comedian of this earth, so your bringing him up show how deceitful that you are. you are a fleabitten poor excuse for a human being to do so.

practically ALL of your clerics are homos, pedos, thieves or drunks like ROB. and it is no wonder that your church has none to replace them. always down thru History, God had replacements ready when men like Elijah was taken out, yet your church has NONE, while in Christian Churches, God is bringing in young men constantly to replace those like me who are getting up in years.

and one way that God has used over the years is to replace Ministers with their son or sons. Your church cant and doesnt use this Plan God has placed in His [true church], because of your church rules but more important, their[clergy] own choice of their sexual orientations

The Catholic Churh is the Church. The constant deflections are from you. There will always be people who fall away. There will always be people who sin. There will always be false teachers that arise and go out and become like you or raise trouble within. When the Church teaches that abuse is ok you let us know. Until then you are a noisy Gong and dismissed as an idiot long ago. No person of any intellect, discernment or love of God would take you seriously. However you are without a doubt the greatest gift any Catholic could have as to listen to you is to know beyond any shadow of a doubt that the Church is the Catholic Church. Thank you!

...... More roman catholic women in america (USA) have abortions than protestant women per 1,000 abortions.

If you really want to do something positive, start adopting all these unwanted children instead of marching around with placards that just draw attention to themselves.
If Catholic women chose to get abortions, it is not the Catholic Churches fault!!The TRUTH about abortion has, is and is still being taught in the Catholic Church and the doctrine of faith as being WRONG! The CONDUCT and IRRESPONSIBLE ACTIONS of members of the Catholic Church is an "abomination against almighty God Himself", along with the teachings of the Church and has "absolutely no bearing" on the TRUTH that the Catholic Church is teaching them "not to abort"!!Get it through your "thick head" Michael! The Catholic Church has, is and will continue to profess, proclaim and teach the TRUTH of Doctrine of Moral principles. That does not guarantee that members of the Church will "decide to go against the teachings of the Church" BY THEIR OWN DECISION ie. abortion, sexual abuse, adultery, stealing, etc.. Furthermore, I don't need to adopt ANY CHILDREN! I have seven childre of my own! In addition, there are "numerous families" in our parish that has adopted "multiple children" here in the U.S and from other countries. Don't play your condemning, judgemental adoption games with me Michael! For someone who has "rejected the TRUTH of the One True Catholic Church of Jesus Christ, and rejected any and all Christian faith, you certainly have a "big (you should do this) mouth!!

Christ stated that the church He founded that the gates of hell would not prevail against it. However the RCC claims that they are the church that Christ founded yet if you look at the history of the RCC one can easily see that not has hell prevailed against the RCC but hell itself is the leader of the RCC.

The RCC is the church that Satan founded in opposition to the church that Christ founded. When Christ established His church Satan immediately set about to establish a church in opposition to the Church that Christ founded to try and destroy the Church that Christ founded. The RCC is that church that Satan founded. It has been baptized in idolatry, theft, murder, deception,lies, false doctrine, unbiblical teachings etc, etc, etc.

In other words ever since it's inception the RCC has tried UNSUCCESSFULLY to usurp the Church that Christ established and they never will succeed for it is as Christ stated when He established His church...THE VERY GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST THE CHURCH THAT HE STARTED. The RCC shall utterly fail in their efforts to usurp the House that Christ built.

While that may be true the problem is Catholic.

The Catholic Church legalized abortion in the USA to reduce numbers of non-Catholics to turn the USA into yet another Latin-American state.

The Catholic politicians such as Nancy Pelosi, Leon Panetta and Joe Biden -- are all pro abortion making law that most who are non-Catholic then kill their children.

However if you look at the numbers you will find many catholic girls are also aborting children. The point is, like all the other problems the USA suffers, abortion as well comes from Rome!

I have a huge problem with the title that the RCC uses for Mary in reference to her being the vessel through whom Christ came. Christ never called Mary mother. Wonder why?( I KNOW WHY ) Yet the RCC refer to Mary as mother of God. Christ always merely called her woman.

Baptist General Convention of Texas: Keeps a confidential file of ministers reported by churches for sexual abuse,“including child molestation” and for whom there is an admission,“substantial evidence,” or a “confirmed” report from the church. The assessment of “substantial evidence” was reviewed by the BGCT’s own attorneys. But even in these rare circumstances -- i.e., when a church itself reports a minister and when the BGCT determined there was substantial evidence -- the minister’s name simply sits in a file and people in the pews are not warned.
Baylor University (the largest Baptist school in the world): Took no action when a student reported sexual assault by ministerial student Matt Baker. Reportedly, university officials asked the student not to contact police. They typed up a report and put it in a file. Despite that assault report in their own file cabinet, and despite the fact that Baker had already been twice reported for sexual abuse at First Baptist of Waco (ironically, the church at which every Baylor president has held membership), Baylor admitted Baker into its Truett Seminary, thereby helping to further advance his career. So, Baker was able to continue church-hopping through Baptistland while also leading “a secret life as a sexual predator.” The only thing that finally stopped his ministerial career was a murder conviction.
Bellevue Baptist Church (Memphis, TN): This flagship magachurch retains as its senior pastor a man who knowingly kept quiet about a staff minister who admitted to sexual abuse of a kid. Thereby, it sends the unmistakeable message that a clergy sex abuse cover-up is no big deal. At least 10 other church leaders and staff also knew about the child molesting minister, but they followed the example of their morally-blind pastor and kept quiet. Some tried to justify their silence by saying it was all “under the blood.”

The church Jesus was referring to was his people not the Roman harlot who would come later to corrupt and pollute the true Gospel.
