Number of new pedophile priest cases is down because last ten years have brought up decades old cases

Of course there are not as many lawsuits and charges of pedophile priests in 2009 as previous years, because beginning in the late 1990s with Minnesota (I think), states opened windows that allowed people to file lawsuits from forty years or longer in the past. So the past decade we've seen cases that cover a sixty-year period.

There are less new cases today, not because there are less pedophiles, but because the Catholic Church has only begun its house cleaning.

The fact that there still ARE new cases shows the Church has not done the job at all yet of changing the Church and getting rid of sexual predator priests.
