I would note that the Lilith article and the letter from Your Moral Leader's blog you linked do not contain any rape allegations (although both religious leaders have been accused of such in other articles/posts).

I would note the research being discussed at CrimProf Blog regards a larger population of complaints (individual single complaints by one or more victims against an alleged rapist).

I will not comment on the research cited there at this time other than to indicate the need to look at law enforcement statistics for other juristictions that keep such statistics.

For the cases, noted above you would have to look at a smaller population of complaints, those regarding sexual predatory behavior alleged by multiple unrelated and unconnected victims (other than having the same alleged abuser) againt a specific sexual predator in the clergy.

As we have seen in the Catholic Church scandal, the numbers of such false complaints by multiple unrelated and unconnected victims (other than having the same alleged abuser) against a specific sexual predator in the clergy are very rare.

Unlike US law enforcement agencies, our neighbor to the north, America lite or Canada keeps statistics as to false reports of sexual assault.

The Province of Ontario reports that about 5.7 percent of all such allegations were false in the first four years of recording such statistics.

The Province of British Columbia reports 6.7 percent of sexual assault allegations have turned out to be false.

It also appears that a large portion of false allegations involve allegations where the victim makes allegations against an unknown abuser. A Toronto police squad that restricts itself to handling major rape cases where the assailant is unknown to the victim, reported that a whopping 30 percent of cases -- 69 out of 232 cases -- turned out to be false.

But again these statistics relate to a much larger population than the examples you are linking to.

What's your point? This was not the only post I deleted that day. I deleted two post that day. A creative process. I have nothing against the information you provided and I am happy you still have it.
