I followed your link and even if I accept at face value the map that shows 14 centers with abuses in the US, none were in the 47 centers that are in PA alone, let alone Western PA.

If I follow your logic, all Republican politicians should be thrown out of office for being toe-tapping public bathroom sex addicts...And, of course, we'd have to ban all Catholic priests for pedophilia.
