LIKE HELL IT ISN'T. 1 OUT OF 50 PRIESTS IS A CHILD MOLESTER? THAT'S WAY HIGHER THAN I THINK ANY OF US THOUGHT. BABY MOSES.
I mean seriously, imagine a class of children. 25 students on average here in Canada, I'd say. When one child per two classes will grow up to MOLEST CHILDREN, that's a high percentage. ESPECIALLY IN A SITUATION OF PROFESSED CELIBACY AND "MORAL VALUES FROM THE BIBLE". Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa *spins in circles*
Edit: Not to mention the fact that the Church does a heck of a lot of cover-ups. I cringe to imagine how much of a multiplier that is. I'M GLAD I WAS NOT RAISED IN CHURCH.

0.02% of the USA are fundies, but let's face it folks it's far too high to be tolerated.

Deimos, It was readable and pretty well written so it can be acceptable.
PirateFaafy, do calm down a bit.

You are scum.
End of discussion.

Even if it is 2% that is still way to high for the people who preach...

Why is this only rated 2.50? This asshole thinks gays are only 2% of the population, so he is saying all gays are paedophiles.

Even one molesting priest is one too many! Would you roll dice on the probability a molesting priest might happen to get his hooks into your kids?

It should be 0%

I can't believe I'm saying 'think of the children' without trying to be ironic.
They're supposed to trust adult in general, and their priest in particular. That damage spreads further than the individual kids they take advantage of. There's also the issue that one priest doesn't typically stick to traumatizing one choir boy. When one of those sick shits gets a taste of power over someone that believes them when they say the assraping is God's punishment and tattlers go to Hell they pull it as often as they can. When it's discovered they get moved to a new location to save face for the faith and start all over again until enough kids come home with rectal bleeding to spark another inquiry to bury.

The argument isn't that: as people, how likely priests are likely to molest. The arguement is: Do the churchs hide such activity? They do, proven, over ALL denominations. Therefore we're only seeing a small part subjected to the laws of state.
