Baylor study RE: clergy "hitting on" flock


Baylor University shows that spiritual leaders are hitting on their flock. This pattern has been discovered in doctors and psychiatrists as well, I believe. There are three vocations that have a special relationship as having communication protected from court interference: doctors, lawyers, clergy. So why not make special laws to recognize this unique position of trust as Texas did in upping the ante for clergy sexual abuse?
