LegacyDL: What if you walk into a room filled with 49 priests?
Yaw String: kind of high
subspace: [img.fark.net image 480x360]"This whole paedophile priests thing is all out of proportion. If there are 400 thousand priests in the world and 5% are paedophiles...then that's only 20 thousand"
Shrugging Atlas: I know, not a priest, but I just saw the episode and it was the first thing I thought of.
HawgWild: [4.bp.blogspot.com image 400x211]/I hear ya
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: As someone who went to a Catholic school, I'm relieved that I remained untouched because of low probability, rather than me being ugly.Hot damn!
doglover: Do I at least get to pick the priest?[api.ning.com image 496x600]Yay![img3.wikia.nocookie.net image 800x600]Um...
Artist: Gee-then all the lawsuits, the forever damaged children are just a mere mathematical percentage thing-y!
brimed03: Tfa says that, while the percentage of pedos in the general population isn't known, some estimates put it at 5%.So basically, IF the Pope is right, you'd be safer with 49 priests than with 20 general folks. Put another way, you could hang out with two and a half times as many priests as ordinary folk and be at the same risk.I'm not saying the Pope IS right, mind you, but let's have a little perspective here. Subby's headline makes it sound like pedos are running amok in the Catholic Church. The fact is, there are lots of pedos everywhere./for the record, this is more a criticism of Subby's alarmist use of statistics than a defense of the Church//Fark can be as bad as Nancy Grace about some things
ghambone: Can you imagine ANY other business model that could get away with this? Even Penn State, after discovering crimes, eventually took down Joe P.'s statue, and had Sandusky convicted. The Vatican only has the Servants of the Paracletes, and their papist/rapist relocation to fresh meat program./went to 2 Catholic Schools in California//both had rapist pastors, that had nothing happen to them///luckily, I wasn't hurt////don't send your kids to Catholic School, at least not in Burlingame, CA
