Vatican City has pretty worrying number of child molesters per capita.



There are absolutely no statistics on the Vatican to be able to legitimately make this claim (I checked). This is just "Priests are pedophiles" trolling

In the context of the post it was replying to, I don't see it as trolling, more a comment on the perils of trying to compare the Vatican to a regular country.

He could have done that a number of different ways, like noting the Vatican only has 800 people. Instead he decided to do it by trolling using all priests are pedophiles trope meant to piss off Catholic posters. It was a snide comment meant to demean the faith of the poster, not offer up a definite metric that is established and has stats to establish it. You wouldn't accept it if a poster had used any other inflammatory metric, how the hell are you going to give this one a pass?
