Thread Name: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
The Southern Baptists (see Jim Carroll's post of February 12), the Latter-Day Saints (Mormons), Anglican, Methodist, several Eastern churches (in which priests can marry, as they can in several instances in the Catholic Church's eastern synods and even the Roman church), and others have all been "shocked and surprised" by finding that sexual abuse is also there. Golly, who would have guessed? And that's just the Christian churches!

Here were I am it seems like every day the news has more sexual abuse reports about teachers, coaches, parents, babysitters, and others -- men AND women. And as we know it's not just an American problem for these religions or occupations or relationships.

But of course our thoughts and prayers are with the victims....
