Are there more pedophiles per capita in the Catholic Church than other religions, or in other professions in general? If so, what is the evidence. This seems like a very difficult thing to really know beyond anecdotal evidence, which of course there is a lot of.
I refer to anecdotal evidence of the kind exemplified in the first post here:
of which I have seen lots.
also repeats the common attitude that priestly lifelong celibacy (a largely catholic practice) is the cause.
So, the question is, does something about Catholicism cause pedophilia at a higher rate than other religions or professions and is that thing celibacy?
