Sex Abuse is a Bigger Problem With Protestants? You don't say?

Edit: just found this excerpt from Leonard Alt who commented on it and we think he raises an excellent point about the abuse hoax which keeps getting swept under the rug, enjoy and please reuse this information the next time you're confronted by people who still mistakenly think this is primarily a Catholic problem:

I apologize to my Protestant friends who do get it; this is not for you.This is for the few Protestants who don’t know the facts and then  make unfair cheap shots at the Catholic Church.
ROGER ASKED A GOOD QUESTION: IF the Catholic Church was the REAL CHURCH... Why do they PERMIT... Priests & Bishops.... TO MOLEST CHILDREN...?

LENNY ASKS A GOOD QUESTION AS WELL:  If the Protestant Churches were the REAL CHURCH…Why do they PERMIT…Protestant ministers & deacons TO MOLEST CHILDREN… and then criticize Catholics when Protestants have a larger problem in their own churches? 

Three insurance companies in the United States that provide liability coverage for 165,000 Protestant churches revealed data to the Associated Press that they typically receive 260 reports every year of children being sexually abused by Protestant clergy or other staff.

If these and the Catholic statistics are accurate, then on average, there are 32 more sex abuse cases per year in the Protestant church. As Father Jonathan stated in his news story, “The mainstream media has all but ignored the recent Associated Press report (April 30,2010 Karen Stephenson).

I have to admit I was surprised at a few of my Protestant friends who still wanted to stand in judgment of the Catholic Church even after they learned there was a bigger problem in Protestant Christianity.  They are acting like modern day Pharisees pointing out the sin of others while not acknowledging their own.
The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, , “O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity—greedy, dishonest, adulterous –or even like this tax collector.  I fast twice a week, and I pay tithe on my whole income” (Lk 18:11-12).

The Evangelicals were busy confessing the sin of Catholics rather than their own sin.   But why do they do it when Jesus spoke against this?  The answer is simple; they were using it as a negative recruiting tool to get people out of the Catholic Church and into the Evangelical Churches.  In fact one Baptist minister said they wanted to gobble up all the Catholics they could get because of the scandal.   I am sure this worked to some degree more or less, but what happens when these people find out there is an even bigger problem in Evangelical Churches.

Even the mighty Jewish talk show host Michael Savage got on the band wagon and lambasted the Church for all those scandals.  It wasn’t long after that and one of Michael’s, Jewish rabbis was picked up in a sting operation where he was caught on tape soliciting underage girls.   This seemed to quiet Michael down a bit.

Roger and others will no longer be using pedophilia as a negative recruiting tool.  They will be too busy explaining to people in their own churches why they got out bad information and why their churches are having such a big problem.

And furthermore there is a problem in the secular schools that could be a hundred times larger then in Christianity and I can substantiate this statement.

Can't blame the celibacy boogieman.

Also, the sex sins within the heretic sects, public schools, swim teams, etc. and the rabbi cases were not Homosexual. They were however pedophilia. Whereas with The Church, it was nearly ALL Homosexual regardless of the age of the victims and the fact that most of the male victims were post pubescent, teen and young adult. Though if one did not look at the reports themselves and only relied on what the Church-hating media bleated out it would be believed otherwise. Even seminarians were not immune. The queers infiltrated The Church because in those days their perversion was still a shameful and punishable crime. They weren't a protected species as they are now. Back in those days The Church was the perfect place where they could do their filth in the hidden life of the clergy. Not to mention hoping to be able to destroy the Church of the God that they despised for His Laws condemning their ways.

Everyone involved in these sins needs massive prayers offered on their behalf. All were victims of the Devil. It is not enough to be a guardian of the eyes because in this world the vile, sexual assaults are upon the senses of us all and unless one lives like a hermit in the desert it is inescapable. Even worse for those who lean towards sexual depravity. They need grace to resist. Assuming that they want to resist. "More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason." Pray for those who are not Catholic because they do not have the means of grace made available by Christ through His Church. Pray that they are docile to the graces that God does send by our prayers and hopefully they will not only resist sin but be led away from their errors.

Others may choose to accuse and condemn the Catholic for offenses perceived or otherwise but the Catholic is a member of the Holy Fold of Jesus Christ and His sheep do as the Shepherd commanded. They pray for those who make themselves their enemies rather than condemn them.

God's mercy upon us all.

destroying the morals of a nation is one of the first things to
be done in order to destroy the nation. i believe it was benjamin franklin who stated, "one rotten apple will destroy the barrel."
the current administration of this country is doing just that.
immorality and the elimination of a christian or jewish diety in of prime importance. in the declaration of independence it is stated that "we are endowed by our creator". evil people want to change that so they will tell you what your rights are. merry christmass!!!

You hit the nail squarely on the head. I wish I could be as articulate.

My grandfather said "When they started hanging horse thieves, the number of horses being stolen dropped dramatically".

Prayer is all fine and good, but there aren't many things that a noose or a good beating won't cure.
