The issue in my mind is covering the behavior up, just as it was at PSU. Unfortunately pedophilia will never be eradicated, but the Church's behavior of covering up the incidents is immoral and unethical, pillars the Church supposedly grounds itself on.
There's also the fact that the Pope is essentially a dictator and all he would need to do is say God told him to defrock or excommunicate priest for pederasty.

But why exert your authority over 1 billion people to do good, when you can simply read the documents, cover it up and then resign?

You are making 0 sense here, dude.

Here's a better quality version of the documentary:

Absolutely chilling. And I find it equally disturbing that you have people like slip who seem to be minimizing or trying to explain away the abuse. Just shameful.
