Is this the “true church” that is being sued all over the world because their pervert clergy preyed upon children, shamefully abused them, and then were sheltered by their bishops so they could continue their sinful behavior? Some “true church.”

yes, it is that same church....however we do not judge an entire organization by the antics of a few....you realize, of course, that the incidence of abuse is much higher within the public school, protestant clergy, and even scouting, than in the Catholic church. The church is made up of sinners, some of course worse than others. We can only hope that these peopple repent of their deeds and ask God's forgiveness.....but you must be very careful when throwing stones lest they strike someone near you. The only reason that you hear of Catholic violations are because a complaint against a priest has to be defended by his diocese....that means money....bringing suit against the local church of what's happening now means no money....not worth the effort
