Anti-Catholics such as members the Iglesia ni Cristo founded by Felix Manalo in 1914, who proclaimed himself as the "Last Prophet or Messenger" would do everything in their power to PUT DOWN the CHURCH which Christ founded in 33AD. The highly sensationalized and exaggerated Catholic Priests who abused children was among their favorite issue to pin down Catholics from defending the Church which Christ had founded. Perhaps this article below would help them realize that Catholic erring priests were not alone in this shameful sinfulness that had disfigured the Holy Face of Christ (all emphasis are mine).
Insurance Journal- The three companies that insure the majority of Protestant churches in America say they typically receive upward of 260 reports each year of young people under 18 being sexually abused by clergy, church staff, volunteers or congregation members.The figures released to The Associated Press offer a glimpse into what has long been an extremely difficult phenomenon to pin down — the frequency of sex abuse in Protestant congregations.
Religious groups and victims’ supporters have been keenly interested in the figure ever since the Roman Catholic sex abuse crisis hit five years ago. The church has revealed that there have been 13,000 credible accusations against Catholic clerics since 1950.Protestant numbers have been harder to come by and are sketchier because the denominations are less centralized than the Catholic church; indeed, many congregations are independent, which makes reporting even more difficult.Some of the only numbers come from three insurance companies — Church Mutual Insurance Co., GuideOne Insurance Co. and Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Co.Together, they insure 165,495 churches and worship centers for liability against child sex abuse and other sexual misconduct, mostly Protestant congregations but a few other faiths as well. They also insure more than 5,500 religious schools, camps and other organizations.
