Why would anyone, especially a newspaper, attack the Clergy continually? More to the point, why would The New York Daily News attack the Clergy in Australia, yet ignore high numbers of Child Maltreatment within the state of New York?
It is a matter of public record that only around 650 cases of Child Sexual Abuse have been proven against Clergy.
It is a matter of public record that close to 20,000 cases of Child Sexual Abuse have been proven against employees of the public schools system.
It must be noted that of all cases reported, excluding Clergy, only about 2% are unsubstantiated.
In all cases reported involving Clergy, 65% are unsubstantiated.
We should commend the good, honest, hard-working newspapers in our Country, that take Child Maltreatment seriously. At this moment, I am looking at Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Texas, South Carolina, Louisiana, Michigan, and Colorado.
