Why don’t we hear about #SexualAbuse in other religions? Surely, the #CatholicChurch isn’t the only one!
#JehovahsWitnesses#SexAbuse scandal is a lot like Catholic Church’s

revealnews.org/blog/jehovahs-…
The Jehovah's Witnesses have refused to turn over secret documents regarding alleged child sex abuse. And it's getting very, very costly.... $4,000 for every day it doesn't release the documents. So far, the tab has reached $2 million. theweek.com/speedreads/737…
Jehovah's Witness #SexualAbuse victim sued the religion for not warning congregants they were practicing alongside a confessed #ChildSexualAbuser. The accused #GonzaloCampos, has admitted to abusing children. documentcloud.org/documents/4214…

Most importantly YES, he IS a democrat and his wife is a pretty interesting character as well
Deeply involved w/ programs such as SNAP, Child custody battles and Special Advisor to Ill Dept of Children Services.
AND #CatholicChurch
#Pedogate
She was praised by Cardinal Francis George for her "deep commitment to the welfare of children."
Digging around I find that OF COURSE this same cardinal was involved in the Catholic pedo ring covering for priests.

Dear @LiberalAus, you just don't get it, do you? Well, let me spell it out for you?
.@TonyAbbottMHR is a #RomanCatholic #failedclergy with strong links to the #Vatican in what he believes in, who told you upon his entry into #auspol that his #mentor was #BASantamaria, a #fascist #RomanCatholic with strong links to the #Vatican & the #Mussolini style govt
.#BASantamaria was a strong player in #auspol late 50's early 60's. If you were growing up in those years you would hear this weird voice on the radio talking about the dangers of #unionism & the need for #RomanCatholics to get involved. It was like the voice from Hell.

Let’s start with the Pope. He’s a super progressive pope for Catholics.

He acknowledges climate change.
And the gays.

We like this pope. Pope Francis.
