An interesting perspective 999.

An additional thought, where wrong deeds are significant in number (and occur over time) in any organization, there are likely those who played some part in it that were promoted to high positions in that organization. Quite often, these individuals play a role in ensuring that the issues are not addressed in a manner that will reflect on them individually.

Is it logical to rule out a factor that some percentage of those people (those that offended, or enabled it to happen and continue) have not been promoted to high positions within the RC church? I would expect that the percentage would increase where the time period is significant and the turn over of staff is low (induviduals serve to old age). Regardless of the standing of the organization (cops, military, and even religious groups), it is not normal in human nature to desire to be found out and held to account.
