Yes the Polish Pope John Paul II was exposed to be covering up child molestation for decades, but Poles don't care about holding famous pedophiles accountable, just ask Roman Polanski.
Protestant Churches of almost all denominations did the same thing. But since they control the media, they covered up things.
Are these churches also afflicted with the nonsense of celibacy? Russian and other Orthodox priests can marry and have children.
The problem of pedophilia and sodomy in the Catholic church is directly related to the ban on marriage and fornication.
Religions that call sex a sin and then demand that their flocks be fruitful and multiply are schizophrenic. Unless every
birth is a divine birth like that of the Virgin Mary, sex is central to the process. And that is why God gave men and women
genitalia, right? So God gave men and women the tools to sin as a test? That includes families having children? What utter
Its not so much as a problem in Orthodox Church as in a Catholic one. The thing is that sexuality in opposition to other human needs as hunger and thirst is flexible in nature.
That means that throughout ones healthy sexual development by the age of teenager when he attains heterosexual orientation one experiences every possible sexual lust still
process itself is focused toward reproduction so ultimately there it stops. So while Catholic priests willingly decide to not have any sexual act their sexuality regresses towards first
available for express itself by any means possible and the ones mentally week easily succumb to it doing all kind of crimes until they are caught. The same principle is applied
everywhere in prison inmates (pederastria), catholic schools and churches and in common society that for any number of reason prevents healthy sexual development of individual.
Orthodox priests therefore can have wifes and children by their laws and their sexual energy can have its healthy ways which is why only degenerates there make crimes which
is on much smaller magnitude in comparison with the priests in Catholic where in a sense even a healthy individual becomes sick by force of law he abides to.
