Not The Strongest Defense

The Vatican addresses the whole clergy-pedophilia thing:

The statement, read out by Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican's permanent observer to the UN, defended its record by claiming that "available research" showed that only 1.5%-5% of Catholic clergy were involved in child sex abuse.

Oh… "only 1.5% to 5%"?  Is that all?

Imagine that pedophile statistic being applied to, say, public school teachers.

P.S.  The Vatican would also like you to note that the Protestant and Jewish faiths have their fair share of pedophilia problems, thankyouverymuch.

So noted.
