    Sex Abuse by Teachers Said Worse Than Catholic Church

    11,000 cases of abuse by about 4,000 priests and deacons since 1950.

    snip..


    Extrapolating data from the latter, she estimated roughly 290,000 students experienced some sort of physical sexual abuse by a school employee from a single decade—1991-2000.


    Teacher sex cases in U. S. public schools unreported, unpunished
    An estimated 4 to 5 million U.S. public school students may be at risk or become victims of sexual assault by school employees and teachers. Even so, media outlets and public officials remain tight-lipped, cover-up allegations, and fight disclosure.
    Since 2007, over 2,000 separate sexual abuse cases have been filed against U. S. public school employees.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Sorry James. I didn't notice the OP was from over a year ago. I have to say though, I don't know that I believe the analogy to be all that accurate. I think this would be a little closer.

    The controversy over Catholic crosses at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1998

    So, what do you think, should the Catholic church erect crosses at the sites of concentration camps? Do you really begrudge the people who oppose it?

    When you consider the fact that 50% have been arrested for pedophilia are married and only 4% of priests have molested children it makes that "If only they let catholic priest marry" argument look more idiotic.

    Yeah, pedos are not just hard up guys. They're actually turned on by kids. They could probably have 12 women dancing naked around them and it wouldn't matter.

    Catholics should be allowed to erect crosses if they want.

    Do you really begrudge the people who oppose it?
    I think its in poor taste to try to deny people the right to honor their deceased. Jews were not the only ones killed or in concentration camps during WWII.

    NOBODY should ever be allowed to live with 10 miles of a public school. You can never be too safe, ya know.

    It's not the crosses I'm worried about their priests erecting.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
