geoduck42: The fact that he's in jail instead of being quietly shuffled off to another post indicates that maybe some in the Catholic Church have at least learned the concept of damage control.


it's worth noting that the information leading to his arrest doesn't appear to have come from church leadership.

Well, he's in jail and as a Catholic Bishop he's not married, who did they expect to answer?

Oh, and thanks for that link. It's nice to hear that you're not that blinkered about the bad stuff in the Church, too.

I just have this nasty allergic reaction to those in total ignorant denial. (too many of them in all institutions, for sure!)

From my perspective, you seem to hold a bit more naive 'rose tinted' a view than me about the cover up issue, but that's WAY more of a reflection of my history with the Church, than of you as a person.

Oh, gosh darnit, Merry bloomin Christmas, to you, brother. :-)

I genuinely hope you are right about the Church actually reforming. Nothing would make my heart warmer than to get that 0 score we're both after.

generallyso: Rockstone: Understand that the actual percentage of priests who commit such crimes are very low, no higher than the actual percentage of the population.

The average population does not cover up for and protect perpetrators of child sexual abuse, the Catholic Church hierarchy does. How anyone could continue to claim membership after the revelation of that fact is completely baffling.


Most of the Church does not. And if Penn State is any indication, the average population does.

/ You hear about more abuses by other Churches, yet you do not say the same thing about them.

BoxOfBees: SoIt doesn't have to be that devious. More likely, for many priests, who commit to priesthood fairly early in life, there is a struggle with sexuality and a recognition that as a priest they won't be expected to marry. So maybe it's a combination of escapism and hope that the training or church structure or some aspect of priestly duties will take away the desire and the temptation. Then they end up in situations where people put complete trust in them and they aren't prepared to handle it. I really don't think that they view children as potential victims, but priests sometimes do spend lots of time thinking about sex and why they can't have it, and possibly trying to justify deviant sexual activity. An 18-year-old boy trying a bit too earnestly to discover his vocation is not the same as a 40-year-old pedophile.

Too reasonable? If so, we could just put on Klan hoods and lynch the Catholics.


Sooo...they go after young boys because, well, they're horny and can't get married? Sorry, they don't get a pass. They could save their nickles and dimes and get the odd beej from the friendly neighbourhood ho. I'd be cool with that. Or just jerk the gherkin in the privacy of their own bed, or pull themselves in the shower. That's what normal folks would do. I put it to you that these guys committing the offences were never normal in that respect to begin with.

I am sure there must be lots of good Catholic priests, men with their hearts in the right places who are appalled by this sort of thing. But apparently I differ from them in at least one significant way. Namely, if I was a member of an organization that repeatedly, around the world, had so many members engaged in child abuse of one sort or the other, and that organization repeatedly, and at the highest levels, engaged in cover-ups or did little or nothing to stop the abuse, I WOULD QUIT THAT ORGANIZATION at the earliest opportunity.

If a local chapter of North American Man/Boy Love Association opened a store front in any community, they would be ran out by fire and pitchforks. It seems obvious a child is more likely to get raped by a priest yet their organization (the church) operates openly and people STILL SEND THEIR CHILDREN THERE!!!

gwenners: I find it more and more difficult to snark about Catholic child molesters. Will they ever clean up their act? Can they?


They are a church who

1. Has access to vulnerable people and children. That is most people who actively worship in church are often from very poor countries or going through a bad time in their lives. This does not mean all people

2. They are people who have decided that they will never have sex. That alone tells me that there maybe something sexually wrong with them in that they are possible not attracted to an adult person who is the opposite sex from them. Now if they are attracted to an adult of the same sex all well and dandy but they would still hide that because many religious beliefs still do not allow that. But if they are attracted to children that is very very bad.


So what better place for a pedophile to be then a place that never questions why you don't want to have sexual partner and puts you in a position over very vulnerable people? The Catholic church doesn't make a person a pedophile, no the Catholic churches institutions are setup in such away that even the dumbest of dumb pedophiles can understand the jackpot of vulnerable little kids that are just waiting for them.

Has anyone actually figured out why, exactly, there is such a high incidence of child molesters in the Catholic clergy? You'd think that in order to treat the problem, you probably need to figure out what is causing it.  I've always assumed that in an attempt to repress their urges, people join the clergy, but I am starting to wonder if it has somewhat become in order to engage in the urges.
