Abstract

Many studies have documented a strong positive correlation between religious participation and pro-social behavior. However, no conclusive evidence exists supporting the direction of causality. We present novel evidence by exploiting an event study of the Catholic-clergy sexual abuse scandals in the United States from 1980 to 2010. We created a unique dataset with the exact geo-location of each parish involved in a scandal and the exact date when each accusation became public. First, we show that Catholic religious participation in the community declines permanently in the aftermath of a scandal. Second, we demonstrate that the community affected by a scandal suffers a permanent decline in total charitable contributions and a decline in the private provision of welfare. In addition, we show that abuse scandals in lay organizations do not have a similar effect on pro-social behavior. This pattern is consistent with the hypothesis that religious congregations foster pro-social behavior.
