Default Catholic Church - criminal organization

Thousands of children abused in Dutch churches over 65 years, inquiry says - CNN.com

At this point your kid would be safer with Jerry Sandusky, how the hell is that church still around? They've obviously support child molesting for years system wide.

The only reason you don't see this with other religions (protestants) is because there isn't a formally organized hierarchy. Do a quick search of the webz and I'm sure you can find plenty of preachers, reverends, pastors, etc... that have done awful things to people.

You do see this with protestant religions, actually. Just not as much, for two reasons: 1) There have been more catholic boarding schools than protestant schools, so naturally there'd be more occurences, and 2) Bit of confirmation bias happening here. We've come to expect it from the catholic schools so we remember it better. I've heard of several non-catholic schools that have had the same kind of charges laid, but for the life of me I can't give details. But just say "Catholic Schools" and everyone nods their head.

Just to clear it up, I was referring to the covering up of evidence of sexual abuse by church officials, not the actual occurrence of sexual abuse which I'm sure takes place all across the board and isn't unique to just the Catholic religion. The nature of the hierarchy of church officials makes cover ups more likely to happen in the Catholic church as opposed to many protestant churches which operate much more independently and are more likely to report abuse to police and the offending pastors can then be taken out of the system and do not get the chance to keep on molesting generation of children.

Yeah, any cover-up in protestant schools would mostly be limited to officials of that school rather than some non-existant greater hierarchy.

refering to the world society not just the united states.....
Completely true, it's the concept of cultural relativism. What's illegal in country A, is looked down upon by country B and is legal in country C.
