Sex abuse claims divide parishioners [USA]

December 15, 2003

With less than two weeks to go before Christmas, parishioners at South Florida churches are talking about the child sex-abuse allegations that have dogged the Miami Archdiocese.On Sunday, the debate continued as churches released a report that says 38 priests have been accused of sexual misconduct involving minors since the diocese was founded 45 years ago.Many of the parishioners say they don’t believe that the priests they have known for decades could be guilty of such crimes. Others say they are horrified by the number of accusations — worried that at least some might be true.
