The church cover-up makes it all seem possible

If you wonder why some people are so credulous that they think pedophile rings are being run out of pizza parlors by politicians, this is probably why:

If the oldest and most powerful Christian Church in the world could do this I suppose it's not really that kooky to believe that others could too ...

The priesthood of the Catholic Church committed or was complicit in widespread, systemic pedophilia and they successfully kept it quiet for decades. I still find this story to be among the most astonishing well ... ever. It's hard to believe it actually happened.

And clearly they still haven't completely come clean.
