23. When a child raping priest was getting close to prosecution he would be transferred

Inevitably they would just set up shop somewhere else. Inevitably even if they did by some small miracle face prosecution they could rely on moral and monetary support from the RCC and the Catholic League. They could rely on the parish to provide character witness and deny the allegations. Child rape prosecutions are hard enough in the best of circumstances. Imagine one where literally all the cards are stacked against you. The report reveals a widespread network of child rape, where the rapists supported each other and the RCC was apathetic at best, but more generally complicit. Itís impossible to believe this network wasnít international. Image a child rapist with the option to take a company funded sabbatical to a country with even less enforcement and more power.

So we must believe this is really no different than the secular world. But where else in the secular world do child rapists enjoy such a huge support network?
