Not taking responsibily, not wanting to repent ones sins, but doing anything to hide them, that is sinful. It seems some in the upper echelon of the church still hasn't learned the lesson from the reformation. Instead of caring more for institutions, reputation and positions of power, they should care more about their moral and spiritual obligations. You do NOT protect the purity of the flock by lying, blaming the victims and failing to act. Instead the ills spreads like a cancerous disease. It is a false pretext to escape responsibility. It is not just a problem in the church, but the mechanism is exactly the same in orthodox Jewish congregations, Muslims madrassas and Buddhist monasteries. They become an easy playground for male sexual predators.
