Paedophilia for dummies

Feel like abusing a kid ? Don't worry, help is on the way. Just volunteer yourselves for a church with "Sexual Abuse Insurance" coverage, or as they call it technically, the "Multi-peril Liability Insurance". First, I didn't even know such an insurance exists as it doesn't make sense. Isn't abusing supposed to be a crime with jail term ? The above link is from the Evangelical Alliance website with the title MOLESTATION/ SEXUAL ABUSE – STRATEGY AND INSURANCE. Yeah right, so the strategy to fight abuse is by taking an insurance which covers it, rather than allowing priests to marry and not get deprived. CNN has an article on $660 million "settlement" between the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles and around 500 alleged victims of the Catholic sex scandal. Quoting CNN,

The deal settles all 508 cases that remained against the archdiocese, which also paid $60 million in December to settle 45 cases that weren't covered by sexual abuse insurance.
I wonder what "cases that weren't covered by sexual abuse insurance" means here ? I will be happy to hear from you if you have details. Not surprisingly, a google for "sexual abuse insurance" shows up lots of church websites with details on how to take this particular insurance. For example, the Church Mutual Insurance states the following in their insurance booklet, under the multi-peril liability coverage section,

Reports of sexual misconduct and molestation, especially child sexual abuse, occur with frightening frequency at worship centers, schools, camps and day care centers.

.....

Purchasing insurance for this exposure is a wise financial decision. It should not be viewed negatively...

Isn't it ridiculous that the Vatican idiots are content with paedophiles and happy excommunicating priests who perform gay marriage ? Organized religion and moral ethics, MY FOOT!

Additions:

Here is a list of church insurers I came across
  1. GuideOne, a major insurer of Protestant Churches
  2. CatholicMutual, a major insurer for Catholic Churches
  3. ChurchMutual, another leading worship insurer
Here is a nice article in slate on tailor-made insurance policy for catholic church. Another website to get updates on church sex scandal is bishop-accountability.org.

The conditions of its origin; its relationship to our psychical life when we are awake; its independence of disturbances which, during the state of sleep, seem to compel notice; its many peculiarities repugnant to our waking thought; the incongruence between its images and the feelings they engender; then the dream's evanescence, the way in which, on awakening, our thoughts thrust it aside as something bizarre, http://startso11.info/ile+kosztuje+parapet+marmurowy.html and our reminiscences mutilating or rejecting it--all these and many other problems have for many hundred years demanded answers which up till now could never have been satisfactory.. The schoolmaster, standing too, takes his spelling-book, and gives a placid yet awe-inspiring look along the ranks, remarking that he intends to be very impartial, http://rebestal.info/rks+radomiak.html and that he shall give out nothing that is not in the spelling-book.. Halfway between the pump and the house he http://startso11.info/PARAFIA+EWANGIELICKA+W+GOLESZOWIE.html met Evelyn coming with a small pail of the precious fluid.. Where, for instance, a chieftain has been urged through a dream to engage in a bold undertaking http://rebestal.info/dni+janowa.html the success of which has had the effect of changing history, a new problem results only so long as the dream, regarded as a strange power, is contrasted with other more familiar psychic forces; the problem, however, disappears when we regard the dream as a form of expression for feelings which are burdened with resistance during the day and which can receive reinforcements at night from deep emotional sources.. I gave my foot a slight wrench, and turned the least bit faint http://startso11.info/ruch+w+agresji.html for a moment..

In condensation we have already considered the case where two conceptions in the dream having something in common, some point of contact, are replaced in the dream content by a mixed image, where the http://startso11.info/niedoczynno%C5%9B%C4%87+tarczycy.html distinct germ corresponds to what is common, and the indistinct secondary modifications to what is distinctive..
