One Response to Abuse issue, health care dominate most-viewed CNS stories for March

    I looked up a HHS report from 2006. That year 66+ thousand cases of child sexual abuse cases were reported. If even a hundred were by priests, who did the 66,000? No mass media coverage there.
    Noted in a blog that maybe one reason the Catholic Church is targeted, and other denominations are given a pass, is that truly represents the teaching of Christ. If it is weakened, then the other churches will be easy pickings. The quote “And the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it” seems quite apt, even to a Church with all it’s failings .
