So, the EVIL ONE is using pedophilia to undermine The message of Christ in Catholic and Protestant Churches.....and this excuses CATHOLIC clergy who had unique access to a late boys and absolute,power for centuries in what way .<quoted text>
Ah yes!!...Here we go again!!! The Protestant "polluted pot" of Propaganda (hypocricy) just keeps getting blacker and blacker as bible onlys like guest just keep "slinging their own mud" on Jesus Christs (historical and biblically proven) Apostolic Catholic Church
The Protestant Clergy Sex Abuse Pattern
by Valerie Tarico
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?
You might answer that the problems in the Catholic Church are uniquely widespread, but that would be the wrong answer. Last week's Eddie Long scandal, in which one of the nation's most politically connected and homophobic mega-ministers was accused of strong-arming gay sex out of teens, was just one tip of an enormous Protestant iceberg. The news monthly Freethought Today has a regular feature called "Black Collar Crime Blotter," typically a two-page sampler of fraud, theft, and sexual abuse taken from the media across the country. They just turned their archive over to the Kinsey Institute. A website called ClergyGoneWild.com provides links to recent crime stories, including child abuse (206 articles) and internet solicitation (18).
This problem is nothing new. The first book on clergy sex abuse in this country, Betrayal of Trust, was published in 1988. The perception that Catholic priests are overrepresented among offenders is correct. They do offend at a higher rate. But because this country is predominantly Protestant, more children are abused by Protestant ministers than by Catholic priests. In 1990, the Freedom from Religion Foundation issued a study on pedophilia by clergy. At that time, two clergy per week were being arrested in North America for sex crimes against children. Fifty-eight percent of them were Protestant.
Why do we largely overlook the horrific pattern of Protestant pedophilia and sexual exploitation? Because of the Anti-Catholic media that targets the Catholic Church while all the while purposely avoiding the cover-up of sexual abuse that has been out of control for years in the thousands and thousands of Protestant denominations.
It's,all disgusting ....HOJO. but the Catholics,here revel and gloat over and over that ministers,are,abusing children as,well as priests. That I find gross ...
ONE,LOST CHILD'S,SOUL AND body is too high a,price to pay for earthly pleasure. And being HAPOY that it may be Protestant children as,some of the,posts,here seem to be is awful..
ITS ALL BAD , EVIL anywhere, in any church ...
AGAINST GOD , MAN And
despite the EXCUSES I've read here about no one knowing anything psychologically in the past it was ALWAYS AGAINST SCRIPTURE AND CELIBACY VOWS...ignorance for cover up in any Church makes no sense and a, poor excuse,for how,these,things,were handled . I trusted nuns and priests,as a kid. IT WAS A SIN TO DISOBEY NUNS,AND PRIESTS .....and in the RCC unlike other denominations, I will NEVER understand WHY these,men were not sent to do PEnance in monasteries,away from children ....for their own souls,and those of children..
Let me,say my own experience was,mostly with nuns who were strict but God loving women and the,priests,I've known were,just fine..
Again gloating over someone else sinning ???? SOULS DAMAGED ......Not good for any of us ..
