The comments about the "media" are amusing, but it's doubtful the people who broadcast news or publish papers get together at some secret convention and decided to pick on the Catholic Church. Such a conclusion is a distraction from the problem of child molestation. Why fault papers, mags, TV and radio for covering a story that just a decade ago shocked many of us?
I agree that most of the stories about sexually perverse clergy are about Catholic clergy, but I would have to be convinced with evidence that the reporting is a determined drive to undermine Catholicism.
Roman Catholics are the most numerous Christians in the United States. Also, the Catholic Church is a very structured organization. Each diocese or archdiocese is set up as a thing unto itself with the bishop or cardinal in charge being answerable only to the pope. Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism and Protestantism don't have global organizations that can match Catholicism's hierarchy.
A Methodist congregation might discover a pastor is a perv and give him the sack. Who's to say that hasn't happened? If nobody reports it to the authorities, a local scandal is averted. However, the clergyman can inflict himself on another congregation that might not know of his past.
The Catholic Church can do that internally, and that's why its corrupt behavior is so shameful.
Every priest is a money-maker. A priest who is a child molester might be well-liked and bring in a lot of contributions, so he will be protected. Because the church is not made up of independent congregations, church leaders can move offending clergy around.
Giavella Water! That's a great screen name. I used to live in South Philly so I recognize the reference. South Philly Review in the mid-1980s did a nostalgia issue and mentioned how Giavella Water vendors would sell their wares in the alleys.
