5. The fake celibacy routine is getting old
They attract abusers into the Priesthood because they want people who are willing to give up natural sexual relations with consenting adults. Well, people who want to rape kids don't want to have sex with adults, and the Priesthood gives them the perfect way to get access to victims. But it is so much more important to pretend that it is good for Priests (to say they) never have sex!

If these jokers would stop demonizing sex between adults they might do a lot better at weeding out the perverts.
