So you are saying many people who purport to be moral paragons are in fact hypocritical evil abusers. Well slap my face and call me Sally.

lilbjorn: This should surprise no one.


The reason the Catholic priests are molesters stereotype got so ingrained was because of the hierarchy and the cover up.

But read about one baptist deacon here, one episcopal preacher there, some snake handlers... well let's just say diffusion of blame.

But what happens when someone is given control over people's lives and considers themselves good?

Same as Mussolini, and Gandhi

The problem isn't this church or that church, or even a problem with religiosity in general.

The problem is when you have an institution headed by charismatic leaders whose members and supporters are more concerned with defending the institution itself and its higher-ups from negative publicity, than actually addressing these problems when they come up.

The exact same phenomenon happened at Penn State, despite not being a religious institution.

So long as people click through on articles that feature "abuse and child" in the same sentence the media is going to keep inventing new groups to discover child abuse in.

I've been saying this for decades, but I may as well been a reed shaking in the wind for all the good it's done.

It's nice to finally see people recognizing the comparative parity of bad people in every walk of life, rather than a singular spike within the Catholic Church.  Can we finally stop the jokes and spiteful obsession with tearing down the Catholics, when in reality virtually every group has evil-doers and their complicit cover-up contingent?

Actually, the Church sets itself up for harsh criticism with its patriarchal, ostensibly asexual credo for its priesthood, so a special kind of hypocrisy is in play. other than that, yeah, assholes everywhere.

"Shaman" is a good job for lousy hunters, and lazy farkers.  Reverend, deacon, pastor and priest are just other words for the same bullshiat.

Considering the fact that Roman Catholic priests have a paedophilia rate significantly lower than the general population, this is not surprising at all.

The "general population" doesn't have an active, systemic, deliberate and finely-tuned system for sheltering paedophiles, obstructing their prosecution, muzzling their victims and allowing them to continue to re-offend.  The Church does.

Of course numbers are lower when they are constantly cooking the books and shuffling the pervs around to other parishes.

My father had a crisis of faith when his second wife committed suicide in front of him and joined the seminary to become a priest.  I was around six at the time.

He said that in his 2 years there he saw so much buggery and homosexual sex amongst older priests and young acolytes that it looked like the castro on a saturday night.

He was kicked out for getting caught banging the arch bishops secretary.

I went to Catholic boarding school and at least once a year some brother would get a little handsy and rotated out to another school, or to the missions in other country, where buggery can go unnoticed.
