Newsweek: Catholic priests are no more pedophiliac than anyone else.

The priesthood is being cast as the refuge of pederasts. In fact, priests seem to abuse children at the same rate as everyone else.

That isn't the alibi I'd care to be sporting, if I were a priest. They are held to higher expectations that "everyone else", after all. Yet, so desperate are the defenders of the Catholic Church for good press, that as of this writing New Advent has this headline at the top of their webpage, emblazoned in Victory In Europe point font. I don't think they realize how sordid or at least sad their trumpeting of this story make them look.
