First the ridiculous disclaimer so idiots do not attempt to tell me that I am supporting child molestation. UNDERSTAND, child molestation is WRONG. An adult even TALKING to a person under the age of majority about sex is wrong, IF THAT IS NOT THEIR CHILD. That is why I state plainly and for the record teaching children "safe sex" in schools is WRONG. Again, an adult, other than a child's parents, talking to a child about sex is WRONG.
We went through another bout of the national media beating up on the Catholic Church about molestation a few years ago. I crunched the numbers and they were shocking. READ THAT LINK!
Now, from my old post, I TRUST ME....YOU SHOULD TOO. (from 2005)
There are currently 46,254 ordained priests that are active in the US today. That translates to a percentage of 0.000047563 of priests have been charged with molestation or other sexual crimes. The funny thing about this is that rate is 1/750th of the rate of molestation in non-priests. To go even further, the homosexual male is 17 TIMES more likely to molest a child than a heterosexual male. Go figger.
And the evidence that I found stated that some of these allegations against priests do not even involve PHYSICAL CONTACT. What does that even mean and how is it molestation?
Now, not to point out the overwhelming, neon obvious, but if reducing child molestation was your goal, don't you think that maybe there would be more focus AWAY from the Catholic Church since the rate is so much LOWER with priests?
Now, to chastise people that are jumping on priests and making it a G-d thing. Priests, clergy, nuns, pastors, meditation gurus, and witch doctors are all HUMANS, they are nothing but HUMANS. Personally, I do not expect my religious advisor to be MORE righteous than I am because I am striving to be more Christ-like. Any guesses as to why people that are spiritual advisers are less likely to commit crimes? Any clue why people that follow their religion are less likely to commit crimes? (This excludes Muslims.)
Here's a hint: It ain't because they practice moral relativism.
Now, if the media is GENUINELY concerned about child molestation, they should stake out some public schools, because that is where MOST of it happens.

Here's an important site update. We just hit a FIVE on the PageRank thingy on The Google. We had been stuck at FOUR since 2007. We are now ten percent more important in the webworld.
