"Jewish" Sam Miller lie exposed

by Paul King Monday, Apr. 18, 2011 at 9:45 PM

Almost every Catholic publication, blog and comment board has carried a story about a "Jewish" businessman defending the Catholic Church. The whole story is based on total lies and deceptions but still is circulated by the faithful.

The "Jewish" Sam Miller who Catholics love to spam (defending the Catholic Church) is a liar and joke.

Sam Miller made up totally false figures in his speech (and admitted it later): -

The lies in question: -

“Now let me give you some figures that you as Catholics should know and remember. For example, research by Richard Blackman at Fuller Theological Seminary shows that 12% of the 300 Protestant clergy surveyed admitted to sexual intercourse with a parishioner; 38% acknowledged other inappropriate sexual contact. In a 1990 study by the United Methodist Church, 41.8% of clergywomen reported unwanted sexual behavior by a colleague; 17% of laywomen said that their own pastors had sexually harassed them. Phillip Jenkins concludes in his book “Pedophiles and Priests” that while 1.7% of the Catholic clergy has been found guilty of pedophilia, 10% of Protestant ministers have been found guilty of pedophilia.“

The REAL figures are 5.4% (http://www.bishop-accountability.org) of Catholic Priests and a fraction of one per cent of Methodists have been accused.

He later apologized when questioned.

It also turns out that Sam Miller is Jewish by blood but is a Christian who has donated to a number of Christian Causes including the Salvation Army. Not one penny has he given to any non Jewish charity or cause.

He is a publicity hound who made up all the facts and figures in his speech.

None are factual.

Typical of Catholic Smoke and Mirror con tricks.

NOTES

The U.S. bishops have reported receiving allegations of abuse by 5,948 priests in 1950-2010, or 5.4% of the 109,694 U.S. priests active since 1950.

Other percentages

After the March 2009 release of audit documents by the NH AG, the names of 74 accused Manchester priests are known, or over 8.9% of the 831 diocesan priests, which extrapolates to 9,768 nationally

Covington diocese states that 9.6% of its priests have been accused, which extrapolates to 10,531 nationally

Over 10% of Providence RI priests have been accused, which extrapolates to over 10,969 nationally

Richard Sipe estimates that 9% of U.S. priests have offended, which extrapolates to 9,872 priests nationally
