I'm sure someone posted the actual quote (can't seem to find it), below...
If not, here's what it was: "If you have a few hundred followers and you let some of them molest children, they call you a cult leader. If you have a billion, they call you 'pope.' "
He also said (in an "apology"): "And the main point I was making was that if the pope, instead of a religious figure, was the CEO of a chain of nationwide day care centers who had thousands of employees who had been caught molesting children and then covering it up, he would have been in jail."
Jesse, if you're going to complain, at least get the quote correct. What you present here is actually NOT what was said. He didn't say it was a cult, he didn't say "promotes," and he didn't say "organized pedophilia."
