BRUSSELS The Belgian Roman Catholic church is acknowledging widespread sexual abuse over years by its clergy and promising to help victims heal and punish the abusers.
On Friday, a report was published in which hundreds of sex abuse victims revealed harrowing accounts of molestation by Catholic clergy throughout the country over the past 50 years.
In response, Belgium's Archbishop Andre-Mutien Leonard said Monday "a feeling of anger and powerlessness" had taken hold of the church.
He said the crisis gripping the church is so deep it would be impossible to find an easy way out.

We'll see. just as long as the morons who think this is because of the celibacy requirment don't get air time.

Seriously, do any of you adults out there who are attracted to adults, see children of any age, as a viable sex replacment for attractive adults? These guys were perps and would have perped where ever they were. I think they chose the church because of this organized covering up.

It's common for lowlife's of all types, to associate themselves with good people, (in my experience they pick faithful religious types) to gain what ever cover and access that provides them. I'm betting this is no different. These guys were pedo's before they ever took the vows. They took those vows for the cover it provided and those who didn't already know of the organizational coverups were certainly happy to avail themselves of it.

As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.
