The problem the RC Church had ... was the COVER UP!
This thread is not a about your belief that the RCC has covered up anything...get on topic now or you are done! Can I be more clear?

Jesus was farrrrrrrrr left for his days.
He would more likely be arrested protesting in front of banks than the White House ... at least the way I learned it.
Did you ever once think that the way you learned it is in essence the way you were told to think by the kool aid dispensers? Huh?
you must have a different bible where Jesus is not kicking over the tables of the money changers?
money changers = the bankers of his day

I commend the Church and their members on endless amount of charity which runs into the 100's of billions of dollars .. perhaps trillions.. over the last few centuries. That is fantastic.
But I wont give them a pass for everything just because of that. And it does relate to this topic.Actually small, I already proven you wrong on page 3 of this thread.
So the 100's of millions they have paid out in lawsuits is a mistake?
The first stage in fixing a problem ... is admitting you have a problem. I think the RC Church has admitted the problem in several nations now. Why you continue to deny it is beyond me.

The Quest scandal out of VSB comes to mind. It took 25 years to come to light.
I've read other news items where a teacher got passed around from school to school or board to board to make misconduct allegations go away quietly, but I don't have the links at my fingertips.
so you have 1 bad teacher story where the board was guilty of negligence
every town has a Priest story where the church is guilty of negligence
In 1994, Shakeshaft published a report based on a four-year study of 225 sexual abuse complaints—184 in New York State and 41 in other states—against teachers made to federal authorities from 1990 to 1994. She found that "All of the accused admitted sexual abuse of a student, but none of the abusers was reported to the authorities, and only 1 percent lost their license to teach. Only 35 percent suffered negative consequences of any kind, and 39 percent chose to leave their school district, most with positive recommendations. Some were even given an early retirement package."
In 2004, Shakeshaft published Educator Sexual Misconduct: A Synthesis of Existing Literature for the United States Department of Education. The report indicated that nearly 10% of U.S. public school students, or 4.5 million students, had been the victims of sexual harassment, rape or sexual abuse. The review described the prevalence of educator sexual misconduct, offender characteristics, targets of educator sexual misconduct, and recommendations for prevention of educator sexual misconduct.

According to a 2006 National Review Online opinion column republished by CBS News, Shakeshaft said that "... the physical sexual abuse of students in [public] schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by [Catholic] priests." She estimated that about 290,000 students were victimized between 1991 and 2000.
