The hypocrite socialistic and islaic Jihadist sympathizer liberal media led by the BBC and NY Times are joining shoulder to shoulder the Islamic Shariya laws and Burqa dressed Brits are attacking Christianity on gays. It is time for the Pope stand up to the Christians that are persecuted by the Islamic regimes of the Middle east including Iran, Pakistan and Gaza where their churches are set on fire and their Christian bibles are burned and desecrated. The appeasement by the Pope of the brutal Islamic terrorists under the rogue Iranian and Pakistani regimes and silence their attacks on Christians and Jews only brought more pain and suffering to tens of millions of innocent Christians around the world that fall victims to the barbaric islamic Shariya laws of the 7th century Saudi nomad tribes that abuses women and denying their human rights like they were slaves.

The "pedophile priest" scandal was the ugly tip of a vast and filthy iceberg of clerical sexual abuse.

The Jehovah's Witnesses, for example, had to be forced to deal with their own "pedophile elder" scandal, pay millions in settlements to victims, and open their (pedo)files to secular authorities.

The Southern Baptists, LDS, Judaism, Anglican....there are NO exceptions to the phenomenon of clerical sexual abuse. Pious people give unconditional respect, obedience and trust to their clergy. Clerics take advantage of their position to take what they want from the pious; money, sex, labor...whatever.

Islam's sexual abuse of women and children by clergy and just about every other MALE muslim inclined to abuse is well-documented by survivors.

Religion is bad. Yes, much good has been done under the banner of some religion or other. However, great good has and is being done by secular individuals and organizations. Religion is a hangover from humanity's early history, and about as useful as a tail- but far more dangerous and destructive.
