Izzy when I said that in Ireland they believed that the unmolested children were in a minority. I was simply printing something from a source. Reliable statistics on molestation are very hard to come by as the vast majority of victims are young and do not report the crime.
You should post links to that source, there's lots of crazy stuff on the internet. Ask RL about David Icke, he posts loads of stuff, I wouldn't call any of it credible.
Did you see the National News from Los Angles this week this week?
Did I ****. What's National News in LA, ain't National over here.

A cardinal has been stripped of his power to do public ceremonies over his role in not handling the sexual molestation problem. The church released the secret personal files of a 122 priests “The behavior described in these files is terrible and evil,” said Archbishop Jose Gomez.
Nobody's disputing terrible things went on in the Catholic Church, I just prefer to listen to reliable sources like News organisations, Wikipedia and the like, not websites of dubious provenance.

There you go again. What study? By whom? Everything you say is backed up by a 'source,' which we're supposed to take your word for. If this study really happened you need to say who carried out the study and post links. If you don't know how to post links, quote etc. ask someone, there's probably a thread about it somewhere.
This is important. If you don't acknowledge your sources and post links you won't be taken seriously. I take it you want to be taken seriously?
Btw, I consider the Monnies a cult, and I'm not particularly bothered what individual members think re cult status. I don't consider Anglicans, Catholics, Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists, Unitarians, Mormons Jw's and Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all cults. I propose drawing a line under this because we're clearly not going to agree, and I'm not going to waste any more time arguing the definition of a word with you.
