I agree. The Catholics have been forced to acknowledge it - finally. Here, we are having a Royal Commission into sexual abuse in institutions.<quoted text>
I believe the sexual abuse that Rosa_Winkel was referring to is the abuse systematically carried out by the catholic church over many decades and has over the last few years been exposed. It has been mostly ignored with several attempts made to hide it by the hierarchy of the church until the last couple of months, when due to constant police and press pressure the Vatican has eventually admitted the crimes of its employees.
But true it does go on everywhere, however if priests are to regain the trust that people once held for them then it should now not be happening to children in church. We will have to wait and see.
But I only mentioned that briefly @ the end of that post. There are other forms of child abuse which the churches are responsible for.
