Jewish here, don’t want to get into Catholic business, but I think that title just begs for an answer - No, it is not just a Catholic problem.

Nope, not just a Catholic problem, they just covered it up.
If only the RCC had spent as much time and effort protecting children as they have their reputation.
Why do you keep posting these articles?
FR was not founded to protect Catholicism or any other religion. Way too many religion threads these days...

Kinda a no brainer for those with a brain - sexual abuse is not only a Catholic issue, all denominations and organizations have to deal with and guard against it. I think what may have made the issue worse within the Catholic Church is the appearance of protecting the pedofiles, rather than cauterizing the problem quickly.

Is it a Catholics only game?
Look to the Koran and its followers. Good old mo? Endorsed little girls and little boys, thus its spread across the “faith”.
Look at woman’s rights as another example....their failings are endless... and codified. Blessed!
Only two threads before yours, the answer appears.

I know a reasonable number of Catholics and ex-Catholics. I have NEVER heard one of them indicate that they had even heard of such perversion. (I have heard about the nuns and their rulers!) I don't doubt that it goes on somewhere. The Church is a huge institution. But I just haven't heard of it except via the MSM. I have heard my Rabbi warn a girl going down to DC for a summer internship whom she should stay away from.

There's no way it's just a Catholic problem.Many Protestant denominations in the West have openly embraced homosexual clergy in recent years.Same with Jewish congregations.Any pervert member of the clergy,just like any pervert shrink,teacher,cop,social worker,can have access to young,vulnerable kids.
The only difference is that,today,the Catholic Church is pretty much the only one in the West that *hasn't* gone PC and,as a result,it's been targeted by the usual (leftist) suspects.
How about all of those SCHOOL TEACHERS we have been having sex with children. (Men AND Women)!
Of course they are not Catholics so they are not evil, just lonely and teaching children new things.

Is Sexual Abuse a Catholic Problem Only? >>
no, it’s pervasive in all faiths including evangelical and Judaism. In the case of the Catholics, the msm hammers away at them daily while ignoring the others..
It’s more pervasive in the teaching and coaching professions..
