And it could just as well be an arrogant child protective agency blind to what's moral and immoral. Once removed to official "safety" children are far more likely to suffer abuse.

Imagine the horror of your abuser rising through a system you didn't know was so corrupt, but you know now. Reaching out the the adults you thought where suppose to protect you. Only to realize they are just as evil as your abuser. But this could NEVER happen. As you run off to the sanctuary of the church seeking protection of your body and soul you're confronted by the brutal reality that your abuser is somehow seen as the victim and you are a dirty little boy who has tempted a good man into sin with your tempting dirty little boy body. But this could NEVER happen. As you purge your heart out to the pastor expecting condamnation of your abuser and the sins perpetrated upon you, you're accused of being a dirty little tempter, you dirty little boy. But this could NEVER happen. As you pour out your soul and cry out out all the gory details of the unwelcome abuse perpetrated on your young body and soul in the confessional you hear the familiar moans coming from the other side of the confessional and then a load hellish OH GOD! But this could NEVER happen. And then when you've drained every drop of energy from the man of GOD with your dirty little tales, you're told, what you need is to learn to be a good little boy. And because your pastor is a forgiving godly man he's going to help you repent your sins and has just the thing for you, the Boy Scouts, where you will learn to be trustworthy, loyal, thrifty, brave, clean, helpful, friendly, courtious, kind, obediant, cheerful and reverent and there's camping fun too. And he's going to do this for you because he's a godly man.

Maybe you missed it. But POLICE CHIEFS, PROSECUTORS, PASTORS, and BOY SCOUT LEADERS protected and shielded SCOUTMASTERS and OTHERS who molested children. The CHURCH, in case you missed that one too, also shielded the priestly PEDOPHILES. Sending them off to new unsuspecting parishes where they forced their deviant behavior on their young victims. They church didn't banish their deviant priests. They sent them off to other churches where they continued to victimized a new batch of children. And the church keep the dirty perversions of their perverts a closely guarded secret for years and years and years and years and years while children continued to be victimized. While innocent lives where destroyed by these perverts the church protected.

Police chiefs, prosecutors, pastors, and Boy Scout leaders protected and shielded scoutmasters and OTHERS who molested children. Evil worms it way into places where it will have easy access to innocents. Evil gets celebrated by evil for it's commitment to "saving" children, you know, from the dangers out there.
