The Netflix documentary, One of Us, released in 2017 exposed what whistleblowers have been saying for years. Just as the Catholic Church maintained, protected, and allowed a pedophile ring of hundreds if not thousands of Catholic priests to rape and abuse children for decades, so too, has the Ultra-orthodox Jewish community in NY been accused of allowing 1 out of every 5 ultra-orthodox Jews to be abused without informing police.

This is horrible. Also I find it completely odd that Netflix would be allowing such an expose'. Amazing.

Is any religion not guilty? Even the Dalai Lama ffs! It makes me sick to the core. I left Catholicism decades ago, although the indoctrination is so strong that the guilt haunted me for a long time. I have no guilt now, but I have anger; plenty of it.

I agree that what we have been reading about the RCC and the abusive priests is also occurring within the Synagogues and Rabbis. It is going on in All of the Religions. We have posted about Scientology, the Mormons, Christian leaders like Billy Graham and his son Franklin, and the list goes on. Not to forget the Dali Lama and the Tibetan Monks that also have been posted about. I don't need a house of worship to pray to God, but I would like the church swept clean of abusive priests. And I want Justice for all the Victims in all religions. And yes I do want them all punished and exposed. It's a Bleeping Mess.

Thank you for posting. This issue does not get enough coverage.

If you don't know much about the Talmud's teachings on sex with children, the Come and Hear website with Carol Valentine is an excellent place to learn: https://voat.co/v/pizzagate/1972884

It's something which transcends religion (although Christianity is the only one of the Abrahamic faiths which expressly forbids hurting children, while Talmudism and Islam permit child rape). Paedophiles will target children by pursuing careers which give them access to children, such as education, medicine, social work and of course, the clergy.

The Talmud strongly condones pedophilia and murder.
