Well then how do you explain this?
“The bishop of Hamburg – the world’s first female Lutheran bishop – has resigned amid criticism of her handling of a sex abuse case.
Maria Jepsen stepped down saying her credibility had been contested.
She denies having known before May this year about a priest in the town of Ahrensburg who reportedly sexually abused boys and girls in the 1980s.”
If only Priest Could Marry!
Germany faces up to sexual abuse after scandals at Catholic, other schools
“Allegations of sexual abuse at schools run by the Catholic and Lutheran churches, as well as at an elite secular boarding school, have put child protection at the top of the domestic agenda in Germany.” Read more here.
Last I heard, Lutheran Priests and secular school teachers can marry.
Oh and only the Catholic Church puts known abusers back into contact with children.
A former Ogden coach and teacher who pleaded guilty in 1996 to multiple charges of sexual exploitation of minors is being allowed to volunteer in the same district where the violations occurred. Read on.
Non of the above excuses Catholic Priests who abused children or the Bishops who did nothing. Priests are ordained to be in the person of Christ. It is beyond evil.
The media attention to abuse in the Church has led to major reforms in the Church. Children are safer in Catholic schools and in the Church. Why hasn’t the media, however, crusaded with the same intensity against all child abusers including those hidden away in our public schools.
