How to protect your kids from Catholic priests

In other news, the number of children molested by atheist or Tuxologist clergy remains at... err.... ZERO.

  1. If only-and now the bishops are supposed to give their own up. Ya right.

  2. Uhhh - I might be missing something, but isn't atheist clergy a null set?

  3. Well, Jazz, maybe that was part of the point that I was making -- i.e., that because atheists don't set up some group of people as moral exemplars who can do no wrong, atheists as a group don't have the problem of said set of people diddling youngsters left and right while being protected by a large hierarchy of said "moral exemplars".

    Besides, I suspect P.Z. Myers, Richard Dawkins, etc. all qualify as atheist clergy under some definition of "clergy" ;).
