July 07, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: The John Jay Report found that between 1950 and 2002, 10,667 individuals alleged abuse by 4,392 priests and deacons. The Wall Street Journal has reported that the number of Boy Scout victims “stepping forward climbed to 84,000, dwarfing similar allegations against the Catholic Church”—yet the Boy Scouts’ scandal has garnered far less media attention.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
