"Just so the facts get out here: In 2010, seven credible cases of abuse were reported in a church that numbers over 65 million adherents.

Just some anecdotal information here: I have been told by at least 7 of my own personal friends of attempted seduction or rape by catholic priests when they were boys and active in the CC. None of these guys have anything to do with the CC now.

And that happened in 2010? Somehow I doubt it.

Maybe of the cases (and I’m not condoning the molestation of children) were false and proven so in court. Only a small number of priests were ever found guilty.

You are aware, though, aren’t you that the press hates the Catholic Church? So we get the news (negative news, that is) about the Catholic Church and other abuse cases in other denominations are not reported.

And I knowpersonally of at least two priests who were accused falsely.
