Any percentage is too high. But statistically speaking, It was a low percentage and always has been. If have stats that prove its more rampant in the Catholic Church than any other, I would like to see it.
Michael says........that is where you should have stopped your post. Instead you went on to defend them.
Catholics themselves are just as much part of this troubling problem as are the clergy. For some reason instead of demanding accountability, there is always an excuse, that it wasn't that bad, or others are doing it to.
Catholics who pay all the bills for the church including the salaries and generous benefits of all the clergy should demand accountability for their hard earned money.
