The statistics of 6% is higher than but no less appalling than the 4% estimate in a 2004 report by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, commissioned by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, based on surveys completed by the Roman Catholic dioceses in the United States:

Robby: Wait. Nine ... ninety Priests? Is that possible?
Richard: From a metric standpoint, yes. That would certainly be in line with my findings
Tons of memorable quotes at IMDb:
Marty Baron: Sometimes it's easy to forget that we spend most of our time stumbling around the dark. Suddenly, a light gets turned on and there's a fair share of blame to go around.

For me, this kind of story is why we do this.
Mitchell Garabedian: If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse one.
