CWN Editor's Note: The Wall Street Journal reports that “when the Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy last year and asked alleged victims of childhood sexual abuse to step forward, roughly 84,000 did.” The John Jay Report found that between 1950 and 2002, 10,667 individuals alleged abuse by 4,392 priests and deacons—yet the Boy Scouts’ scandal has garnered far less media attention.
