The inability of a child to thrive in a Constitutionally protected God based perpetual threat and rape culture is not a fault of the child; however it does become their odious responsibility upon reaching adulthood.

One of the most fundamental of flaws to be found in the Catholic religion is found in the example of its failure to respond appropriately to the global crisis of the sexual abuse of children by its clergy.
The sexual molestation of children and the failure to adequately protect against this form of abuse is a failure at the most fundamental level of the human experience as it breaches the most innate of human needs - the ability to afford safety and protection from abuse for our children.
Whilst ever this problem remains unresolved Catholics and Christians who wish to remain with their church must at some point deny the facts of the scope of the crimes and the human rights of survivors.
Whilst ever this problem remains unresolved the Catholic church and each and every individual who supports it in any way is supporting a failure. This is not just a small localized failure, it is not a simple one off failure; it is in fact the largest and the most harmful human failure we can envisage.
The amount of good work required to bring a balance between the most harmful human failure we can envisage in the rape and lifetime denial, shunning and abandonment of child victims of abuse in not equally evident in society today. If the Catholic church and its individual followers were capable of an equal good that equal good would be the removal and punishment of the guilty, the provision of support, justice and redress for the victims and an all out endeavor to remove any possibility of a repeat.
No Christian can say that their supporting of the Catholic church in any way whatsoever can be both moral and ethical choice while ever the issues of justice and repair to victims and the protection of children remain unresolved?
No person can morally and ethically justify the continuation of such a social failure.
