Catholic Bishops’ report whitewashes Church

If you haven’t read Miranda Celeste’s analysis of the bishops’ report, read it here: “A Worthless and Dangerous Report“:

  • It was paid for by Catholic organizations, which had final approval on whether it could be published, thus ensuring that it would be slanted favourably to them
  • It considers only at priests who were caught rather than surveying Catholics to see who might have been molested without reporting it
  • It redefines paedophilia from the DSM definition of victims 13 and under to 10 and under, thus reducing the percentage of paedophiles among perpetrators from 73% to a ‘mere’ 22%,
  • It then complains that other media exaggerated by calling paedophilia a major part of the problem.
