The world has been shocked and horrified by the recent news about the Catholic church and its cover-up of another pedophile priest scandal. Some 300 priests in Pennsylvania are accused of abusing approximately 1,000 children over a 70-year period.
The reason why people are shocked by those numbers is because the American media goes out of its way to cover up two far bigger and ongoing sex scandals that dwarf this one.
The pope’s response to the scandal has been mindboggling as well. When accusations of sexual abuse, misconduct, harassment and rape piled up against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, he said he was taking a break from work to focus on battling the National Rifle Association. He probably thought the media would give him a pass for his crimes. The pope apparently saw that excuse and appropriated it for himself. Yes, yes, abused children are a terrible thing and that’s why I’m so focused on fighting global warming! Huh?
Don’t mistake anything that we are about to tell you as a justification for the actions of the accused priests or the Vatican. What the priests and the church hierarchy did in covering up the crimes was horrific. Every single person involved deserves justice in this life and in eternity for harming children. We want to focus on the media’s hypocrisy in covering up the other two pedophilia scandals that every Christian should know about.
In the state of Texas alone, there were 429 public school teachers accused of sexual misconduct with children in the 2017-2018 school year. We don’t know the number of students involved – only that 429 teachers are accused of some sort of sexual activity related to minor children in their care.
It was at least 429, possibly many more, and it happened in a single 9-month “school year,” according to a great report from Breitbart News. Breitbart was also careful to point out that those numbers do not include janitors, bus drivers, aides, coaches or principals – just teachers.
Compare that to the 300 priests accused abusing 1,000 children over a 70-year period (14 per year), and you might suddenly wonder why no research organization is compiling the amount of sex abuse taking place in public schools.
Perhaps the Catholic church should hire a labor union to run public relations campaigns, letting everyone know how hard priests work and how underpaid they are, and to cover up its sex abuse scandals. That strategy appears to be working well for the public school system.
“Well, Texas is a big state. It’s not fair to compare the whole US to Texas,” you might argue. Perhaps.
Let’s pretend that Texas’ sexual misconduct numbers are skewed all out of proportion due to the population of the state. If the average number of public school teachers abusing children is 100 per state annually, that works out to 5,000 abused students per year. Again, the priest-abuse average works out to 14 children per year. And the average of 100 teachers is probably low – we just ran that number for the sake of giving weight to the teacher defenders’ argument.
And if you think the numbers for public school teachers are bad (they are), you might want to sit down for the information about illegal aliens.
The organization known as the North Carolinians For Immigration Reform (NC-FIRE) tracks the number of illegal aliens arrested every single month in their state for child rape. They are the only organization in the 50 states which tracks this number, to our knowledge. God bless them for doing so, because someone has to speak out for the children.
In 2017, NC-FIRE recorded 208 illegal aliens arrested for raping children in North Carolina. Multiply 208 abused children by all 50 states and that works out to 10,400 children raped in the United States every year by illegals.
These crimes were perpetrated by men from foreign countries who invaded America by illegally crossing our southern border. Someone should suggest building a wall on our southern border, because these crimes are 100% preventable.
The same media that spends hours talking about the 14 annual abuse cases involving priests will never mention the 5,000 (probably a lot more) cases involving public school teachers or the 10,400 per year involving illegal aliens.
Jesus said in Luke 17:2, “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” If the media ever accurately reported on the abuse of America’s little ones by public school teachers and illegal aliens, we would run out of millstones in a hurry.
