    Claims Of Clergy Abuse Rose In 2008

    Roman Catholic dioceses and religious orders saw a rise in molestation claims against clergy last year, according to a new report from U.S. bishops. Nearly all the 803 cases involved adults who said they had been abused as children decades ago.

    Church leaders paid less in settlements, attorney fees and other abuse-related costs. Still, the amount reached just over $436 million, bringing the total payouts for abuse to more than $2.6 billion since 1950, according to studies commissioned by the prelates.

    803 cases!!!

    I find it very sad that these clergymen who are supposed to be men of the Lord and guide those who seek help, instead inflict more pain on peoples lives. Its amazing how Catholicism is destroying itself from the inside.
