    What a biased panel. I wish they would have had JoAnn Wypijewski there to give a less biased take. It is ridiculous to say that this is a specifically Catholic problem but that is how it is framed when they state that priests are dangerous. You could say the same about coaches, teachers, even relatives as most sexual violence occurs within families. This is not whataboutism but a significant point when you take into account the long history of vicious anti-Catholicism in the United States. Also, contrary to the panel the Church has seen a big drop in abuse claims in recent years hence the need to go back many decades to find accusations that are really impossible to properly investigate at this late date, hence why we have a statute of limitations. As far as investigating other religious institutions, good luck with that since most other religious organizations dont even bother to keep records like the Catholic Church does hence their cases of abuse fly under the radar or are impossible to investigate even if you tried. But the Catholic Church is attacked for lack of transparency! business online pharmacy
