As just one example, there is no screening at all of private school teachers, none: that's just asking for trouble
Exactly Harry. Unfortunately it's not about the protection of the child here, but a denial of human rights to the adult population.
Then it's high time to start a new thread about how non-RC clergy offenders are admitting their guilt and beign brought to justice. The preponderance of RCC stuff on PF and in the sensation-seeking media creates the impression that priests are the sole or main offenders.
You really don't get it do you Polonius? On a par with teachers who sexually molest the children in their care, priests who commit such crimes are the worst of offenders and should be dealt with accordingly by long prison sentences. In not so secure prison units where they will regularly be assaulted, so they can know for themselves the misery they bring.
Anybody who is sexually attracted to pre-pubescents and deliberately puts themselves in authority over children is guilty. Like alcoholics and others with an addictive personality, some paedophiles do seek professional help, but when they are caught in the act should expect the full force of the law.
I always checked out my daughters' priests very very carefully, for if something had happened, I would have had to kill them.
