Im fairly sure that like the fake 6.5% you are misreporting this!
4% of child sex abusers are not priests!
4% of those convicted arent priests!
I also mentioned that ~6.5% of priests have either been convicted of abuse or had credible allegations of abuse levelled against them, with figures which back this up from Cloyne and Dublin,
No you didnt!
what figures show 6.5% of priests in cloyne or dublin are pedophiles?
and the original claim was dublin but Im happy to look at any evidence.
figures which have been broadly accepted and admitted by the Vatican.
You are misreporting this I believe.
wher did the vatican accpet that 6.5% or 4% of child sex abusers are priests or that 4% of those convicted were priests?
I have no interest in continuing a discussion in which your only apparent purpose is to disagree with everybody, regardless of whether or not it's reasonable to do so.I'm sorry you feel this way, but if you followed some of the points that were suggested to you privately and publicly, you might find A+A a lot more welcoming.
It is very simple.
You made a 6.5% claim you couldnt back up.
You told me it was in this thread.
You then made a 4% claim but you didnt wadmit the 6.5%one was wrong.
You were asked for evidence for the 4% claim.
You didnt provide it.
All you did was restate the claim.
the 4% figure is usually related to the percentage of victims not the percentage of abusers!
You made the claim and you coldnt back it up and no ammount of restating a false claiml will prov it.
all you simply have to do is produce the Vatican/ dublin diocese report saying that either 6.5% or 4% of abusers are priests.
where is it?????
No amount of "we dont like your tone" comments will make you false claims true.
All you simply have to do is produce the evidence. Not hearsay claims about evidence . Just the actual evidence.
so wher is the evidence you keep saying the Bishops or Vatican have?
