I've seen posts claiming that the rate of abuse in the Catholic church has been comparable to that in other churches and even in public schools. Anyone have links to studies showing (or not showing) this? There's a lot of stuff available. I'm not linking because a quick read of several left me with:We don't have much of a handle on sex abuse. It's recognized that it results in stigma and is grossly under reported. One estimate is that 96% of all abusers are never charged, but that's not based on hard data.Another very biased report claims it's a media campaign, and that public schools have a high rate of abuse. They then point out that in one state over 400,000 children will be abused in some form during their K-12 years, and only 140,000+ are enrolled in private schools in that state.Not being given the number of kids enrolled in public school, or the expected rate of incidents on the private side, the conclusion is meaningless.The bottom line is abuse occurs everywhere. And it's not okay. Claiming unfair treatment in these kinds of things is really pond scumming it. Locally, we just saw three administrators and a teacher fired from a HS about 30 miles from here. He was bonking a student, and the admin covered it up.At Penn State, Sandusky went nuts, and those who covered up for him fell, too.
