    In a sex abuse scandal that some victims compare to what happened in the Catholic Church, at least 36 swimming coaches have been banned for life by the USA Swimming organization over the last 10 years because of sexual misconduct with teenagers they coached.
    Brian Ross investigates on 20/20, Tonight 10/9c.



    The coaches have molested, fondled and abused dozens of swimmers, according to court records and interviews conducted by ABC News for reports Friday on "World News with Diane Sawyer" and "20/20." ...

    No

    Hindson was sentenced in 2008 to 33 years in federal prison
    Whereas the Church never told the police, paid hush money to shut victims up, and made sure that paedophile priests were sent elsewhere to do it again..and again...and again...

    It doesn't take a great deal of consideration to see that the Church had more than a simplistic take on the situation and how to deal with it. We're talking about a timeline spanning from a day when people didn't speak of any kind of sex (jokingly referred to as a time when a lady wouldn't say 'toilet paper' outloud) to last week. The Church leaders were often in a position where everyone wanted the situation dealt with quietly. Which teenager or young adult wanted to be publicly known for having had sex with a priest in a big city much less a small town? As for the priests, the Church believes that all things are possible with God, and that most sins redeemed and people repaired. To act as if these people could not repent and live holy lives would be a lack of faith and a philosophical paradox.

    Times change. Now we have beautiful blond school teachers having affairs with adolescent savages and suburban soccer dads complaining out loud that such teachers didn't exist when they were in junior high.

    ...the victims wanted their molestors caught and punished. Which never happened.

    They did not have sex, you liberal creep, they were raped and molested.A liberal with BDS and a sympathiser for child molestors as well? Uh huh....

    What they did was a heinous criminal offence.

    Some of them did and some of them wanted it handled quietly. Sometimes it was parents who wanted the matter pursued and victims who just wanted it to go away. While you are entitled to read these reports selectively, it's dishonest to them declare that the others don't exist.

    Some of them did. The vast majority of these cases were statutory rape, not child molestation. There really is a difference. There is a reason why we have a number of terms for such things, each with its own meaning.

    Raping a child is heinous.

    As much as I despise the Roman Church , honesty and fairness are always preferable to the kind of dishonestly you appear to want to engage in.

    Child molestation and statutory rape are the same thing,...both are sexual exploitation of a minor and both are felonies.

    I have one term for them...rock spiders.

    Honesty and fairness are not words a fool suffering from BDS has any business using.

    Statutory rape is sex with a minor which would be legal if you were within 3 years age of each other, of if you had been married with parental consent. Now explain to me how that is the same as child molestation. Then explain it to every woman who married a soldier when she was 14-17.

    Sdx with a minor is child molestation. Period.

    Just when was it legal in the US for a fourteen year old to marry?

    In many states a parent can give consent to a marriage between an adult and a 14 year old and it is legal. Jerry Lee Lewis married his 13 year old cousin.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
    C. S. Lewis
