25. That happens in clergy

when suddenly a whole pal system somehow encourages a regular outbreak of abusers. Cheating the screening is endemic to already corrupted power. Where is an independent check when the "fish rots from the head"?

What is truly incredible about Christian clergy is how pointed and direct are the sayings of the Founder on the subject of the "servants of all", but the love of the position and the "life" whether the priesthood of Isis or of Jesus has a universal identification all its own. Most dedicated priesthoods have notorious records of abuse from Tibetan monks on down to pagan temples. Power, money, position equals corrupting influence that is simply not recognized much less talked about or policed. Sin is the small stuff you don't sweat for these successful, superior people who have lost much of the central purpose of the job.
