Church Continues to Get Hit With Sex Abuse Claims
The Roman Catholic church continues to get slammed with more and more sex abuse claims. It has recently been reported that in 2005 there were 783 new sex abuse claims filed against the Church. Although numbers indicate that the number of claims has been diminishing, it appears the amount of settlement monies paid by the Church in connection with these claims continues to grow.
There are roughly 12, 500 claims that have been filed against the Church since 1950 costing an astounding $1 billion in settlements.
