基督教牧師每年性侵未成人信徒人數不輸天主教神父與修女


天主教自2002 年起爆發神職人員大量性侵美國未成年信徒,光神父就有6745多人犯案,被害人無以計數


   迄今又陸續在歐洲澳洲及各大洲發現性侵信徒的情形,更加嚴重,神職人員被控性侵信徒約數十萬,還繼續被發現及控告中。


   相較於天主教神父修女的性侵醜聞上報率,基督教牧師似乎少許多,但今日有保險公司報告指出,其實基督教牧師的性侵事件並不少於天主教,報導如下!


   現有三家美國保險公司的報告指出,他們三家保險公司每年要處理美國基督(新)教牧師性侵未成年人案達260 ~333件   http://www.presstv.ir/usdetail/171218.html

   三家保險公司~:教會互助保險有限公司,GuideOne保險有限公司和Brotherhood互助保險有限公司,是美國大多數基督教教會投保保險的主要的公司,依他們三家公司的數據,多年來每年約有260或333個未滿18歲的年輕人遭受牧師、教會工作人員,志工或組織成員性侵害。消息自: pinoyexchange.com
  新教的人數只能概括,因為教派不像天主教教會那麼集中,事實上,許多會堂成員是獨立的,這使得報告不容易收集。


   最大的教會互助保險公司(Church Mutual Insurance Co),報告說在過去的十年,他們公司每年平均要處理約100件涉及性侵未成年人的案子。


  客戶規模只有教會互助保險公司一半的GuideOne保險公司說,過去二十年他們每年平均要處理160 件性侵未成年人的案件, 另兄弟互助保險公司說過去十五年來每年平均要處理73件兒童性侵和其他不當性行為問題。


   不過,兄弟互助公司沒指明不滿18 歲的受害人數目,所以無法精確的加入計算在未成年受性侵人數內。


   GuideOne 保險公司損害賠償總法律顧問兼高級副總裁湯姆法爾Tom Farr說,大多數性侵個案,法庭會下令私下解決。

  他說,賠償金可以從數百萬美元下降到只支付受害者法律顧問服務費用。

   迄今新教教會所涉及的案件中,其中一個最大的調解案是德州前路德會牧師Gerald Patrick Thomas Jr陪審團判賠將近3700萬美元。另外早期處理有關Thomas案也花了額外費用3200萬美元


  如果擔任專業神職的教牧~神父修女牧師都這德性,那一般信徒豈不更遭糕


   以上統計的基督教牧師性侵案,光三家保險公司每年平均就達333件,其他的保險公司並未計算在內。若估算在內其與天主教幾乎不相上下,甚或超過!

A former youth pastor arrested in Iowa on 60 counts of suspicion of sexual exploitation allegedly told teenage boys he was trying to help them gain "sexual purity in the eyes of God."

Thirty-one-year-old Brent Girouex, a former youth pastor at Victory Fellowship Church in Council Bluffs, turned himself in to the police in February after four young men came forward with allegations against him, The Daily Nonpareil reported.

Girouex has been released on a $30,000 bond and is due back in court on April 21. If found guilty, he faces up to five years on each charge.

Court documents show Girouex told investigators he had sexual contact with a teenage boy 25 to 50 times over a four-year period, starting when the boy was 14-years-old. He allegedly told investigators that it was his duty as a youth pastor " to help [the teen] with homosexual urges by praying while he had sexual contact with him."

"In my line of work, I get to see the worst of the worst, and this is pretty bad," Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber told KETV. His office is working with the alleged victims.

At least eight people have come forward with accusations against Girouex, ranging in age from 14 to 23. Raw Story

FACTS & FIGURES

The three companies Church Mutual Insurance Co., GuideOne Insurance Co. and Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Co. that insure the majority of Protestant churches in America say they typically receive upward of 260 reports each year of young people under 18 being sexually abused by clergy, church staff, volunteers or congregation members. pinoyexchange.com

Protestant numbers have been harder to come by and are sketchier because the denominations are less centralized than the Catholic Church; indeed, many congregations are independent, which makes reporting even more difficult. pinoyexchange.com

The largest company, Church Mutual, reported an average of about 100 sex abuse cases a year involving minors over the past decade. GuideOne, which has about half the clients of Church Mutual, said it has received an average of 160 reports of sex abuse against minors every year for the past two decades. pinoyexchange.com

Brotherhood Mutual said it has received an average of 73 reports of child sex abuse and other sexual misconduct every year for the past 15 years. However, Brotherhood does not specify which victims are younger than 18 so it is impossible to accurately add that to the total cases. pinoyexchange.com

Tom Farr, general counsel and senior vice president of claims for GuideOne, based in West Des Moines, Iowa, said most abuse cases are resolved privately in court-ordered mediation. Awards can range from millions of dollars down to paying for counseling for victims, he said. pinoyexchange.com

One of the largest settlements to date in Protestant churches involved the case of former Lutheran minister Gerald Patrick Thomas Jr. in Texas, where a jury several years ago awarded the minister's victims nearly $37 million. Separate earlier settlements involving Thomas cost an additional $32 million. pinoyexchange.com
塞爾蘇斯:基督徒有【造反傾向】,他們蔑視傳統,喜歡地下活動,或明或暗地反對習俗和法律。他們不公開生活,對國家完全沒有興趣,所以是文明的敵人,野蠻的開路人。
