I see you haven’t been around FR long...check the Religion Forum for the last month, and count the anti-Catholic articles.
I didn’t dream this up out of nowhere.

Actually I’ve been on FR for years, just on a different account.
And I’ve seen plenty of insults of Protestants, too. Just yesterday I was reading a thread insulting Martin Luther, a commenter talked about how he ripped six books out of the Bible and tried to take out more, etc.
Anyway, you didn’t respond to the list of many non-Catholics who are assumed guilty around here. Don’t you see that there are plenty of them who are assumed guilty, too?
I personally believe that the vast majority of priests are good men who are trying to do good. And that the RC church members have done a lot of good in this world. So I am not on a hunt.
It’s the issue of child molestation/abuse, not the issue of Catholicism, that gets most of us riled up. That’s my opinion.
Yes, when someone presents himself as particularly holy or set apart, as in a priest OR a minister OR a teacher, it rankles even more. Because of the hypocrisy.
But I think you are assuming an agenda too intensely. Debates about Catholicism/Protestantism will occur, particularly in the religion forum. Both sides can get accusatory and ugly. The child molestation issue is largely separate as I see it.
