Thread Name: BS: Clerical Abuse of Children
Subject: RE: BS: Catholic Abuse of Children
Whoops
Preamature ejaculation - must stop doing that
Pronouncements such as that one leaves the distinct impression of something being covered up.
"I think Jim, you'd rightly object to a thread with the title "Muslim Abuse of children"
I certainly would if it was an attempt to implicate the religion as a whole
I have always made it quite clear that I believe this involves the church hierarchy, not Catholics as a whole
Maybe the title should read The Catholic Church's abuse of children, jus as the Muslim cases should read the abuse of young women by a handful of Muslim criminals.
Unfortunately, the latter is not possible because of the Islamophobic nature of Western society
