The Roman Catholic Church has been the focal point of a great deal of public anger. Unfortunately, it has been largely misdirected:

The vast majority of abuse by priests who victimize persons under the age of 18 has taken the form of hemophilia 1 -- involving post-pubertal children who are often 16 or 17 years of age.
Yet most of the public has the impression that most of the abuse is pedophilia 2 -- involving young, pre-pubertal children.

In 2004-FEB, CNN was able to view a draft copy of a survey prepared by the church. It reveals that 4,450 of the 110,000 Roman Catholic clergy (4%) who served between 1950 and 2002 have been accused of molesting minors. This has resulted in 11,000 individual abuse claims filed against Catholic clergy during that interval.

LOL visit my blog for nice pictures LOL

Hell, just went to Labour Home to check out the blog about Brown having cognitive dissonance and for the second time today the website hung on and I'm left looking at Labour for much longer than I want til I have to shut down and restart. Is this a metaphor I am living?

Iain, that post from Honeyball is interesting, but her previous one attracted a lot of replies and is linked to this article from Simon Clark on Taking Liberties.

I take it your cunning self has read the 'other' post about EU censorship and Labour MEP numbskullery? ;-)

I'm surprised there's no links at all to posts that are going in to the amazing new powers the government wishes to confer to itself through the Coroners and Justice Bill (sections 152-154).

Eh? Scottish Unionist? Anywho - just got beat by Kerry McCarthy - she was right, I was wrong. T'was ever thus.

I've got me game fixed to destroy Labour, give the SNP a nudge - maybe i'm wrong there tooooo. Has Labour killed itself?

Mary doesn't think to much of your site - she thinks you're too much gossip. You need to change your gender if you want to create lively and amusing debates!

Matt, bovvered! I first came across her when I was running the Tory campaign in Norwich North in 1987 when she was the Labour candidate. We whipped her lefty ass.
