Nearly 2,000 children in Illinois were sexually abused by Catholic clergy, state finds

Going to church is far far more dangerous for kids than drag shows.

A new report also names 451 Catholic clerics and religious brothers who abused the children between 1950 and 2019, far more than the church acknowledged before the review began

Sounds like the Catholics are groomers. Maybe Large Marge and Rhonda Death Sentence should get on this.

If God didn't want us to mess with the kiddies, he wouldn't have made them so damn waist-high and adorable.

Wow, this report goes up to 2019. No proof that ANY of this is over for good

If children were abused at the circus at anywhere NEAR the rate they were at church, it would be a federal crime to take a child anywhere near them.

Weird, it's like the clergy is more of a threat than drag queens

There is an article in the NYTs today. The extent of the sexual abuse of children is almost beyond comprehension. I think it is so horrific, most people are just not grasping the scope and horror of what was done. I don't know how to post articles that are behind paywalls. The story is well worth reading.

Ban priests, not drag queens

Drag shows for children is as creepy as priest spending time with boys.

Perhaps priest were the drag queens we were looking for all along.
