“It's not just Catholics, it's just easier to blame since they are organized under one bank/church leader under the pope... Every religion does it”

joeyfoto on Mar 29, 2010 at 09:35:19

“seg153 writes: "t's not just Catholics, it's just easier to blame since they are organized under one bank/church leader under the pope... Every religion does it"

That is simply false. Every religion does not do it to the degree practiced within the Catholic Church, but more importantly from the point-of-view of the victims, not every religion or group protects their criminals with the same religious fervor as the church has universally done for centuries. When you associate every action with the imprimatur of the "one&only" God, self-righteousness becomes boundless.

While it is true that pedophiles gravitate toward any activity that places them in proximity to children (coach, scout leader; teacher; school janitor, etc.), there is no global social role as associated with the sexual exploitation of children as that of Roman Catholic priest. In every nation, where there is a strong presence of the Catholic Church, children are victimized. The reasons for that are complex and convoluted but they clearly stem from deeply held beliefs within the religion itself.

Now, thanks to the united voices of victims and challenges taken up by lawyers, like Jeff Anderson, facts are coming out country-by-country, state-by-state. The non-existent "moral-authority" of the Catholic Church is crumbling. It is no longer capable of concealing the clergy's crimes against children.”

WoodyCPM on Mar 29, 2010 at 09:03:01

“Certainly sexual abuse of minors and adults is not confined to the Catholic Church. Any institution that has a clear hierarchy of authority figures, and that would include just about all human institutions, runs the risk that some percentage of the authority figures will end up abusing their power over others for sexual gratification. No human institution is exempt. Most sexual abuse of children occurs in families. Businesses are not exempt. Schools are not exempt. Psychiatrists are not exempt. Wherever there are clearly defined power roles, the risk exists. The Church however, due to a number of factors (dogma, selection and formation of priests, the nature of their hierarchy, etc.) ended up in the dog house over it. It's going to take them at least a generation to start to repair the damage done to their moral authority.”

FrTown on Mar 29, 2010 at 08:35:37

“Your attempt to divert attention away from the Catholic church is ridiculous to say the least. Show proof.
It's understandable that you feel offended as a Catholic; But you can't throw flares in all directions to draw attention away from the fire.”

Sepulchre on Mar 29, 2010 at 08:33:10

“Only The Catholic Church is capable of protecting clergy in such an organized manor, and because the Vatican is not only a Church but considered its own sovereign entity.
Yes it happens in other places, but those other places are usually able to be prosecuted by law. The issue here is them harboring and protecting the people who commit these acts.”

spqesq on Mar 29, 2010 at 08:25:29

“Then every religion should be prosecuted just as zealously.”

“Wrong. The priests own the Catholic church and the congregation watches and follows. In the Episcopal church, the bishops act quickly to remove the priest. The congregation has the power to select the priest and follow the money..”

“No other organization has been doing it so religiously since its inception at the hands of Constantine.
