Carol brings my attention to something in a response to my post on Cardinal Rodriguez’s comments. I had said that the percentage of priests accused of molestations is less than 3 percent of all priests over the past 40 years (probably much less). But Carol points me to the Bishops-Accountability.org web site set up by victims’ groups.
On the page linked above, they summarize various statistics about each US diocese, including “percentage of priests accused” of abuse. But as Carol points out, this figure is a complete fiction.
