Some time ago during the height of the sexual abuse scandals in the Catholic Church my friend David said that plenty of the same stuff went on in Protestant Churches, but because they are much more unaccountable and without a strict hierarchical system they don’t get picked up.

Here’s a link which proves he was right. In addition to this, it seems the sexual abuse of minors in public schools is off the charts. Here’s just one story that reminds us what’s happening. (H/T on both stories to Roving Medievalist)

Why is the media so silent on these two areas of scandal in our society? I hate to seem paranoid, but it is hard not to conclude that the Catholic Church is a favorite target.
