"I think it's safe to say there is no safer place for children today than in the Catholic Church," said Bishop Blase Cupich of South Dakota, who presented the John Jay researchers to the other 230 bishops. 

I think it's safe to say that there is no safer place to say "there is no safer place for children today than in the Catholic Church" than at a meeting of the USCCB.

    Variations on the Theme (with apologies to Mozart): I. I think it's true to say that there is no truer stance for U.S. bishops today than to be in union with Rome and the CDF. II. I think it's gracious to say that there is no more grace-filled place for U.S. priests today than the Confessional at the end of a silent retreat. III. I think it is edifying to say that there is no more edifying posture for parents of Catholic children than to be on their knees together in prayer. etc. etc.

    Absolutely - as you said a few weeks back "the children are well protected from their parents"...
