It is intriguing that when the topic here is the sexual abuse of children that some would like to silence or restrict that!!!
Why is that?

Church move welcomed
The Courier - Mail.  Brisbane, Qld.:Dec 14, 2006.  p. 34
 
THE Anglican Church is to be commended for its efforts to introduce tough new
psychological profiling to weed out potential pedophiles among trainee and
existing clergy and eventually, among all church workers. While such offenders
are only a small minority, their evil, criminal acts have caused their victims
devastating, long-term suffering and cast a serious slur over mainstream
churches in recent years. As they draw on the expertise of psychologists, the
churches must also pay close attention to the faith lives of those they prepare
for ministry, because child sex abuse represents the ultimate breakdown or
betrayal of Christian faith.
