Why Children should be protected from religious indoctrination

Catholic Church in St. John's found liable for abuse of 8 altar boys

The boys, who were the altar boys in these parishes, generally came from the more devout Catholic homes. The more devout, the more religious parents that pushed their children to become altar boys, and these were the boys who were victimized by their parish priest.

And how did the Catholic Church respond to this abuse?

There were also allegations that previous investigations, beginning in 1975, had been covered up, and the offenders whisked away to other provinces, where they received treatment and soon took on new religious postings.

Irresponsibility, denial, and law evasion.

Apologists will say its isolated, blah blah, blah, but this kind of recurring news has brought the catholic church to its knees.

Pardon the pun.

We don't send children into any high risk areas and its about time people view the church as one of those places. Recommend this Post
