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...
And what about this?
Why isn't the msm all over that story?
And you don’t think other denominations cover these things up?
I think you might be misled there if that is what you believe.
Like it or not, the Church is being hammered for doing what was normal for all institutions, which was taking child abuse lightly. The California priest was given a slap on the wrist by the Criminal justice system, convicted and put on probation, because —I imagine—because they saw worse things every day in domestic settings. As a former teacher, I know how schools handled most cases. The accused teacher was just sent away. Of course, the way things work generally, those falsely accused sometimes were treated more preemptorily than more serious offender. A young teacher accused of making excessive eye-contact with a girl left; a coach caught rubbing up to a girl was allowed to stay, even though his wife left him. Child abuse was a big problem in the military, but commanders were loathe to discipline a “good soldier” who happened also to be a brute who beat his wife and children.

I thought FR was founded for the freedom of telling the TRUTH. That’s one of the reasons I joined. As for your second statement, the *root* of ALL of the world’s problems is spiritual. This is another reason I joined, because FR allows such threads.
