This is where you hit it on the head. Despite the desires of many here to use this problem as validation for their irrational beliefs about the Catholic Church, the real issue is that the Catholic Church has been infiltrated by evil.
Infiltration is one of the key questions. We know that the communists were trying to infiltrate the Catholic Church. There is that little book The Memoirs of an Anti-Apostle that now seems to be reasonable given current events. And there are the old satanist and luciferian groups that have longed to destroyed the Church.
Regardless of the group, you are spot on when your right that "the real issue is that the Catholic Church has been infiltrated by evil" because it surely has, and the smoke of satan is billowing forth from the sanctuaries.
"The Devil like a roaring lion goes about seeking whom he may devour.." Office of Compline, many years ago.
Guess he found a lot of morsels. Was it C.S. Lewis who said that the Devil likes nothing better than for us to deny he exists?

Yes,the Church has been infiltrated. In Bella Dodd's Memoirs she tells of speaking before the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities.She was the former co-chairman of CPUSA(Communist Party United States of America)and testified in the late 40's early 50's. She testified that from the time of the Bolshevic Revolution and by the beginning of the 40's Communists had placed over 1000 candidates in Catholic seminaries in Europe and the United States. So it is not hard to discipher what happened by the 60's. They had risen to positions of power in the Church,seminaries and academia and commandeered the Church. But God in His mercy has given us yet another chance. We need to be wise as serpents and simple as doves.
Satan and his able emissaries on earth are within the walls.
