Catholic priest prison rape? yikes!
Celibacy is just another name for abstinance-only, and we all know abstinance never works.
Christians are all sex perverts. Jews simply never commit perverted sex crimes because Judaism is a religion of righteousness.
I think you killed the thread with that one, issur.
Where were you on the rabbi molestation thread?!! Seems you forgot or simply neglected to comment on that one...
I object to the notion that priests are sexually abusing women, TOO, is GOOD NEWS for Catholics. I was sexually abused by my parish priest when I was seventeen. I am sick and tired of having the horrors of my abuse reduced by statements like: "At least it was NORMAL sex!" Give me a break, people. Rape is rape and heterosexual rape is no more acceptable or 'good news' as rape of an altar boy. I guess you all figure that "what the hell, women are raped all the time, right? Probably asked for it. Prabably came on to the priest, right?" Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

One of 'those women'.
Dan's comment about 'good news' may be intended as irony but it may not be seen so by many of the clerically abused.
The John Jay report statement that 80% of the priest victims were male is simply a fraud which exposes the unreliability of the whole report.
I support the need for justice for these victims and authentic efforts to protect the next generation of our children. Neither of these things is happening under the hierarchy's Charter.
Frances George the cardinal of chicago refuses to remove an identified pedophile priest who then continues his abuse. George is elected president of the bishops club by 85% of his fellows.
What is the message?
I applaud Elizabeth for her courage. She is a beacon for the legions of female clerical abuse survivors. May her legitimate outrage melt the hearts of my fellow catholics
