depends on your definition of “pedophile”.
I agree with you. This is a whitewash, setting up “tropes” i.e. straw men, and then defeating those strawmen, leaves you where we started. There was systematic tolerance of sexual abuse of minors by priests, over generations, and nothing was done about it until the media got involved.
The Church did not write the report. You must have missed where the report showed that the Church’s response was typical of all institutions during the time most of the abuse occurred. They relied on so called secular experts on how to handle abusers.
Also how the heck is 4% of the priestly population over a period of 30-40 years evidence of a systematic tolerance of abuse.
The inability of anti Catholics to examine data without their prejudices blindning them always puzzles me. To harbor such hate that facts are repugnant to one is certianly not a Christian virtue.
