Most of the "innocent children" involved in these priestly sex scandals were actually teenage altar servers, students, etc. who willingly took part in it as part of a mentoring relationship. It wasn't until years later that they were brainwashed into believing that it was "abuse/molestation" -- sound familiar?
If you have a problem with organized religion, I sympathize, but this really has nothing to do with that. The Church has been as much a victim of the current hysteria against pedophilia (real or imagined) as have the rest of us.
