    Have not heard of other faiths being charged to same degree as have HRCC and that these are continuing to be unearthed throughout entire christendom.
    The point is this:

    That is roughly consistent with data on many similar professions.
    If Catholic priests are no more likely than anyone else to be pedophiles, why is it that the church is being attacked as being riddled with pedophile priests? Why not attack some other profession?

    Because members of other professions get fired when their bosses find out they're molesting children at work.

    You're being sarcastic right?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Of course I am not being sarcastic. Do you know ANYTHING about the history of Catholicism in the USA?

    After all a tiny percentage of catholic priests molested some kids. Letting them build near elementuary schools and day cares might be too much of a temptation and would be offensive to those who were abused by child molesters.
    Ahahaha - I wonder what % of Catholics have molested children VS what % of school teachers have molested children.

    I just don't see how being Catholic and molesting children are even related. I know several Catholics and none of them molest children as far as I know. If there isn't an actual practical reason, I believe any religion should be able to build a place of worship wherever they want.

    I never understood this. Is the argument that "normal" men will turn to child molestation in absence of "normal" sex? I don't believe that.

    Yep - I agree.

    That's just like saying "if all the women disappeared then all the men would become gay"
