My abuse was not at all by any church people, but still, it is 'coverd up', and continues to be cover up today. A friend and I report it in March. More then six months later, nothing been done, until we make threats, and two these people lose jobs. Still nothing legal done. I know that we hear much of the church people right now. They are not only ones, and maybe not only ones in 'large' percentage. I am not Catholic, I am a Russian religion called Starovist. I am sure we have had father's who abuse also. But there also are teachers, coaches, parents, neighbors, who do same. I know that there is something more emotional of church abuse, because of the God nature of it. But there also are very very good people of the church, who are treated wrongly now simply because they are of God, or Catholic. It is like 'witch hunt' sometime. Maybe you would feel more comfortable engaging in different religion? I do not know.
