The Catholic Church ran the largest organized child sex crime syndicate in the history of the U.S.
No other institution is even close, although Catholics have plenty of “estimates”, “extrapolations”, ouright guesses and quotes from apologists that will try to prove otherwise. Point them to the Catholic church’s own voluntary report, the John Jay report, which show 4,392 substantiated, accused child sex offenders in the U.S. alone, and ask for any other institution, of any size, that has that many. No one else is even close.
But in the Catholic church, it was much, much worse for a variety of reasons:
- it is the only institution where each child raping priest confessed it to another priest using a Catholic invention called “confession”, and the other priest absolved him, in complete difiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6
- that priest in the confessional let the child sex offender free, ignoring Jesus in Matt 18:6
- in Catholicism, the child rapist is now completely forgiven, even though the child is psychologically destroyed. Again, this completely heretical considering What Jesus Said in Matthew 18:6
- some diocese refused to report, like Los Angeles, where they had to pay 500 victims “hush money” four years later
Therefore, the Catholic church needs their leaders (not just priests) to spread dishonesty and lies. Here is just one example of that dishonesty from 2014, from “Catholic Answers”, which has a current Facebook following of over 58,000 people.
Read their “Myth Busters” blog entry at the CATHOLIC.COM website, and you might think that Catholic child rape wasn’t so bad, and that the rest of the world is just being mean to Catholics. In other words, Catholic followers have somehow become “victims” (instead of the child rape victims being the victims), so there is no need to fight for the true victims, because Catholics are now the victims.
Catholics should fight “the media” instead of fighting the priests that hid the pedophiles.
