To those who doubt Tom’s claim, I can affirm them, as I had to go through training to work with children in my non-profit activities. I, too, was surprised to find that priests/ministers do not make up the largest group numerically or percentage wise. Dads are the main group (in fact 75% of abuse comes from a family member), followed by teachers and coaches. I don’t have the statistics to show that priests/ministers commit less abuse than other professions (I also don’t have the statistics to show that priests/ministers DO commit more abuse than other professions).
The 2010 election was a middle-class revolt that ended one-party rule in Washington and gave the opposition a strong majority in the House and strength in the Senate. Obama and Reid have responded to this impertinence with their own Intolerable Acts — governing through executive orders and regulations, and adding to the spending and debt explosion of the previous two years. There has been no reform, no moderation, and no compromise. Most recently, in the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare, Chief Justice John Roberts made it official that no power is beyond the federal government if taxation is used as the whip to enforce compliance.
