Good article...
Christian countries like others swept it under the rug for centuries.
"Child sexual abuse has gained public attention in the past few decades and has become one of the most high-profile crimes. Since the 1970s the sexual abuse of children and child molestation has increasingly been recognized as deeply damaging to children and thus unacceptable for society as a whole. While sexual use of children by adults has been present throughout history, it has only become the object of significant public attention in recent times"
So I suppose we can thank the Catholic church for such a long and obvious cover-up, that society was forced to act, because the immorality wasn't immediately recognised by the church.
The delusional gods said nothing, until the world media got involved.
Shame on the Catholic church.
Religion - A Delusion:

Cover-ups happen everywhere in all types of circumstances.

The more positive solution to the matter is to recognize that there is no difference between laity and clergy, both are human beings.

Some people have great difficulty in questioning authority, and recognize they are human beings.

Yet another forune teller.

The word theology means to study religions of the world. It doesn't mean to be a fortune teller and pretend that what you predict is based on truth.

The gypsies used crystal balls and you use words in a bible.

All groups of fortune tellers claim they can see the future.

From my perspective that was and IS a blatant lie.

I will correct.
The Roman Catholic church gave the world the largest Institutional child sex cover-up in history.
As for the facts, I suggest the John Jay Report.
As for more facts, why don't you find out what a Vatican spokesperson said recently.
There is no excuse for a supposed institution of God pointing fingers at others as "just as bad."
Your god is imaginary.

Try Japan in WWII. Euphemistically called "comfort women".
Try India now, 1.2 million children exploited in prostitution. India and the rest of the world doesn't have a problem with it. Why?

It is not religions that preach to commit crimes. Its quite the opposite. It is when the "world" gets into the religion that people cause crime and cover-ups.

Yes it IS. Religion teaches superiority in the idea "MY religion is right and yours is wrong." That is a crime put upon world conscience.

You support the idea that Catholic saints are worthy of excessive praise ... etc.

And as a promoter of that crime ... you are part and parcel of the problem. You don't perceive that humans are equal in worth. You put your Catholicism above all else, and that is the crime of divide and conquer that causes wars and all other sorts of horrible atrocities.

You are full of pride in your cult. You might not see that as causing crime ... but I DO.

Pride by the Catholic hierarchy caused centuries of burning innocent people at the stake.

PRIDE in enforcing their own dogmas caused the crimes.

Thomas Jefferson was a Christian of such pride that he re-wrote parts of the new testament to publish "The Jefferson Bible."

The man was filled with Christian pride and promoted the following crime against innocent homosexuals.

About.com Civil Liberies.

In 1779, Thomas Jefferson proposed a law that would mandate castration for gay men and mutilation of nose cartilage for gay women. But that's not the scary part. Here's the scary part: Jefferson was considered a liberal. At the time, the most common penalty on the books was death.

Christians have always been tellers of fortune ... making their own fortunes all about bliss in a supposed afterlife and torment in the supposed afterlife for those who were not Christian.

That teaching of young children is a blatant crime, as it teaches them to grow up in the same spotlight of arrogance as their parents.

Crimes committed against world conscience are the most insidious crimes of all.

Yes, most Mexican leaders say they are Catholic, elected by mostly Catholics.

Is the USA run by Christians?

Of course, they claim to be. Maybe they are not your kind of Christian, but most profess to be religious.

You are spinning to fast to make sense.

Are you trying to say that Christians eschew big money and power?

If Mexico is not run by Christians, please name one country that is run by Christians?

Why didn't Thomas Jefferson teach that homosexuals must be treated as equal to all others?

He preached in his bible what "Jesus" meant by his messages.

Yet Thomas suggested brutality was the best medicine for homosexuals.

It was all for their own good ... YOU KNOW!!! sarcasm intended!

Christians always did commit crimes while professing it was for the "good" of humanity.

Interesting that no Egyptian soldier recorded that event for history.
No Egyptian historian wrote anything about that event.
No historian in any nearby society recorded that event either.
Nothing outside the Old Testament, much of which you now reject.
Your only evidence is faith in a Bronze Age religion, most of which your religion now rejects.
Say hello to reality. You wouldn't buy a car based on such so-called evidence. That's the reality.

And you are ranting about hookers in Japan and sex in India.

Typical.

The most religious countries have relatively high crime, India included.

The most religious states in the USA have the highest homicide rates.

I hope you don't go and rape or murder someone tonight, although if you are Christian, is is statistically probable.

My information can be tested, measured, and proven.

Your's is pure delusion.

And you know it too.

Example -- when very sick, do you rely on Biblical cures to drive out the demons, or do you rely on medical science, which can be measured and tested?

We both know the answer. When reality counts, prayer and the Bible take a back seat.

The poster "Human being" was just over on the thread "Saint of the day" glorying in the image of one of those ancient supposed Catholic saints.

Pride in ONLY their own cults is the name of the religious game.

They claim to defend religion as a whole ... but the blood shed of history proves that nonsense another lie among many. It's only their own image of perfection that they value and place high on pedestals as they align their selves to the same worth as their mighty imaginary perfected (in their minds) deities.

A retired Christian who as a pastor "ministered" to the Native Indians admitted that the Natives would have been better off without the Christian influence.

That was a mouthful he seemed anxious to share ... in hind-"sight."

My guess is, he never to this day uttered those words to his Christian family and "friends."

Michael says. Why are you making up excuses for an organization that prides itself on being the adovocates of morality and justice?

If a man raped your 13 year old son would you just say. "He is only human"? I think not!!

Give your head a shake.....

Anyone who rapes a child should be behind bars and anyone who covers up for a child rapist should be in the same cell as the perpitrator.........lay person or religious. AGREE?
