This is one reason, among many, that pb wants nuthin to do with institutionalized religion.

A four-year investigation of Baltimore’s Catholic archdiocese reveals the scope of 80 years of child sex abuse and torture and how church officials often covered it up and, in some cases, paved the way for further abuse.

"The staggering pervasiveness of the abuse itself underscores the culpability of the Church hierarchy," the report said. "The sheer number of abusers and victims, the depravity of the abusers' conduct, and the frequency with which known abusers were given the opportunity to continue preying upon children are astonishing. Over 600 children are known to have been abused by the 156 people included in this Report, but the number is likely far higher."

"What we learned is that the incontrovertible history uncovered by this investigation is one of pervasive, pernicious and persistent abuse by priests and other Archdiocese personnel," Brown said during the news conference. "It's also a history of repeated coverup of that abuse by the Catholic Church."


Now, as pb always notes in cases like this, this is only the accusers' side of the story. Still, charges such as this have been substantiated many times over.

While pb, essentially, agrees with the core beliefs of the Roman Catholic Church, he also notes that, according to Jesus, it's what people do as a result of their faith that is the only thing that ultimately matters.

Jesus good. Institution bad. Very, very bad.
