18th January 2014

“In 2004 a statistical study commissioned by the American bishops and utilizing documents from their files concluded that 6½ percent of priests during that period were reported for abusing minors. Currently 6,500 American clergy have been reported for abuse. The most reliable estimates of abusing Catholic clergy in the U.S. now run between 6 and 9 percent, with many dioceses recording 10 percent. The Los Angeles archdiocese had 11½ percent abusing priests in the active ranks of its clergy.”
