If Imams were like RC Priests (and Archbishops)
Posted by Dave Bath on 2008-07-10
Imagine the public outcry if Islamic Imams were regularly in the news because of sexual abuse, or covering up sexual abuse, as much as the Roman Catholic church… imagine how demagogues would bang the drum, and what they’d be calling for.
As for Pell’s timing… World Catholic Youth Day… devout kids easily swayed by so-called priests… How many kids will meet a predator in a dog collar that will end up abusing them. Also, should the RC version of FaceBook be patrolled by the AFP (who have bots that can pretend to be kids to trap deviants) as much as other social networking sites are patrolled for sexual predators.
