And the church wonders why it is seen as a joke with zero credibility.
I have many Catholic friends who concur with my sentiments.
Do you believe all Christian churches where abuse of minors has been covered up are a joke? Are Baptists a joke?
"The problem of clergy sexual abuse is not just a Catholic issue...Studies have shown no difference in its frequency by denomination, region, theology, or institutional structure."-Source: Baptist Hide & Seek
The fact is that sexual abuse of minors is a worldwide problem that occurs in nearly all institutions. It's even more heinous when it takes place in a Christian or other religious setting where children should be entitled to feel safe. Unfortunately for our children, it's more fashionable to bash Catholics than it is to hold accountable ALL organizations and institutions with a history of mistreating kids.
