Report details sexual abuse by more than 300 priests in Pennsylvania's Catholic Church

Well, this story tops my recent list for most disgusting and horrific story. To think so many priests did this while children thought they were the highest authority of God they knew. There really should be a new punishment for people who abuse power in this way, and for those who help conceal their crimes.

A new grand jury report says that internal documents from six Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania show that more than 300 "predator priests" have been credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 child victims.

"We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands," the grand jury report says.

"Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades. Monsignors, auxiliary bishops, bishops, archbishops, cardinals have mostly been protected; many, including some named in this report, have been promoted."

At times, the lengthy catalog of clergy sexual abuses in the report is difficult to read. As the grand jurors note, priests and other Catholic leaders victimized boys and girls, teens and pre-pubescent children.


I left out examples as they were too depressing to blindside any members here. Keep that in mind should you go to the link.

With all of these that we have heard, and likely instances that we haven't heard, is it time that the government/DOJ tries to create a system to reduce these numbers?

That's just Pennsylvania......there's 49 more states that these perverts are in. Not to mention all the other countries in the world that they prey upon.
