Yes, there's a problem and it needs to be dealt with. But at least it's being admitted to and addressed.
The religious want to sweep their scandals under the rug and silence discussion, who want to keep raping women and children with impunity. And there's certainly no denial about the cretins in the atheist community, no revisionism of claiming "they're not TRUE atheists!" like the religitards often do in trying to deny their own.

atheists are not organized into churches or similar institutions, and do not have a hierarchy - and thus avoid all those problems which result from these aspects of institutions - such as the Catholic Church. They do not have any institution that can be sued, for example. Each individual atheist is on his own. Whereas in the Catholic Church, a higherup who protected a pedophile priest endangers the moneyboxes of the Church, and its reputation, and members of the hierarchy can hire lawyers to defend the institution as well as themselves. I think that makes a big difference.
