As far as I can remember, I have only written one blog entry on child abuse within the Roman church: Deliver Us From Evil: The Catholic Church and Pedophile Priests. If I've done any other posts on this topic, I've since forgotten.
The problem though, as I see it in the 21st Century, is that a Protestant using abuse scandals as an apologetic argument against Romanism has to explain abuse scandals within various Protestant churches. For years I've pointed out that if the argument you're using works against your own position, you've refuted yourself as well.
For instance, I this weekend I watched a documentary on alleged child abuse within the Christian and Missionary Alliance Denomination entitled, All God' Children. Here's the trailer:
The entire documentary is available on YouTube. Similar to Roman hierarchical subterfuge, the victims here likewise went through years of bureaucracy to be recognized. It's worth a look.
I'm all for presenting argumentation against Rome, but I'm not for all argumentation without discrimination against Rome. Certain arguments, like using abuse scandals, need to be carefully laid out. Why is Rome's abuse problem different than abuse in Protestant churches? What dogmas or doctrines play a crucial role in the occurrence of abuse? These are two questions off the top of my head that should be carefully expounded before Rome is chastised. If any of you have thoughts on how to justify using abuse arguments as an apologetic against Rome, I'd be interested in hearing what you have to say. Till I'm convinced otherwise, I'm going to stick with saying using such arguments an apologetic aren't helpful.
