Sexual Abuse Among Clergymen

A blog I read has a feature on it called "The Morally Corrupt".  It lists all of the clergymen who have been arrested for various forms of sexual misconduct.  I know there are pedophiles and sexual predators in all walks of life, sadly many of them in roles that we tell our children should be able to trust (teachers, coaches, police officers, etc.).  But this, in my opinion most offensive, deplorable, disgusting misuse of trust and power I can think of.

Its also one of the most common.

Here is the list:

Do You Carry Pepper Spray?

I'd like to think I am very safe where I live, my city is always in the top ten of "safest cities in the US" and usually in the top five. But crime can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. I feel safer knowing that if I have pepper spray, I have a much better chance of escaping an attacker. Sadly there are coyotes in my area that are being forced to eat small dogs and cats, so I also feel safer having it with me when I walk my small dog. I am on the coyote's side (we took their land, what do we expect?) but I would do anything to save my dog from being attacked.
