Police raid Catholic church in Chile

In the news: Chile police raid Catholic Church offices amid sex abuse scandal

Here is a pretty good examination from the PBS NewsHour of the whole recent sex abuse scandal in the Catholic church in Chile, the pope's involvement, and this police raid ...

The Catholic church cannot be trusted to actually hold accountable abusers and those who cover it up. We will have to count instead on civil governments to prosecute these people. To make this possible, statutes of limitation have to be relaxed ... as it now stands, the Catholic church spends a ton of money fighting against this happening ... Catholic Church spent $2M on major N.Y. lobbying firms to block child-sex law reform

The Catholic sex abuse problem will never go away as long as the church refuses to allow married men and women to be priests. I'm not saying that celibacy causes pedophilia. What I am saying is that any institution that promises to enforce lifelong celibacy in its employees is bound to attract a higher than average percentage of emotionally/sexually disturbed job seekers.
