Ugh, guess what? We’re not even talking about “prevention” here. We’re talking about covering up sexual abuse and permitting pederast priests to continue to rape children.
Protestant ministers and public school teachers who molest children generally get reported to police and sent to jail. There are protocols in place which demand accusations go directly to the police.
Not so with Roman Catholic priests. Rome has made it an excommunicable offense to go to anyone other than someone within the church hierarchy with accusations against a priest.
And as we’ve seen over and over, these accusations get ignored, buried and denied by RC apologists who yell “it’s all about the money!”
Do Roman Catholics have any concept of how disgusting that response it when it is leveled at EVERY accusation made against these pederast priests who not only are protected, but very often receive a promotion?
Why do you think grand juries are so furious with these RC dioceses after they see the evidence?
BECAUSE ROME HIDES PEDERAST PRIESTS AND FACILITATES THEIR CONTINUING ABUSE OF CHILDREN.
“Rome has made it an excommunicable offense to go to anyone other than someone within the church hierarchy with accusations against a priest.”
Dr, either prove your words, or eat them. Respectfully. You may provide links to official Roman Catholic Church documents for me, and the rest of the readers. OR, retract those words. Your choice.
Are you really that naive?
There is absolutely no reason to doubt that there exists a large number of Catholic priests who have sexually abused children.
The same can be said, with equal authority, of Protestant ministers and public school teachers. We can add policemen,doctors, politicians, and virtually every occupation and every familial relationship title.
All it takes is a sexually perverted adult with access to a child to create a victim.
I personally know a few mothers and fathers who even blamed their own child for “their involvement in sexual perversion”.
It's an extremely ugly crime, and the victims of it carry a lifetime legacy of subtle societal punishments.
First from the act itself.
Then from the guilt of the very people who were supposed to protect them from harm, but failed, and generally end up blaming the victim for their guilt in failing to protect the child.
The Catholic Church doesn't have the patent on that.
People in all walks of life, in all societies, tend to try to cover up, or otherwise pretend away the brutal sexual abuse of children and women, mostly by blaming the victims and/or refusing to even acknowledge someone they associate with is capable of such perversion.
Like you just did.
