I Agreed With ANOTHER Atheist!
Just when I thought Mark from Proud Atheists was a complete waste of my time, he shines with a short but great post.
In it, he posts a picture meant for comedy, and then asks a single, serious question: “In many states, teachers and child care workers are screened. So why not include the priests, pastors, rabbis and other clergy?”
Why not? If potential pastors have nothing to hide, then they shouldn’t mind being screened in this way. I think more denominations should adopt this. We know that there’s a rampant problem in Catholicism, and Mark is on a quest to prove that Protestantism isn’t immune from it (here, here, here, here, and here). Why not create some better accountability?
It sounds like a very sensible idea.
