We only did it a little bit, say 20% and we only covered it up for 1700 years or so so that our pedophile friends could live a stress free life knowing they were protected by buddies in the system who help to keep us in with the government so that our pedophile friends can travel overseas more often. Some might prefer a stress free life engaged in learning fantasy at tax payers expense just so they can avoid doing an honest days work.
Of course you can see how well forgiveness and confession has worked out for hundreds of thousands of children across the globe repeatedly raped and targeted simply because they questioned the implausible doctrines and the many fantastic claims or asked for evidence of these; this was like buying a ticket in a child rape lottery.
Still don't forget that money is the root of all evil so you better give it to the Church to help out those it still sees as being needy which of course does not include the raped children as they need someone to blame and 7 year olds are defenseless so better that the Church blame them.
Don't stop working, don't stop sending in your money as the pope and Pell need new jewels in their fine robes as well the money laundering that they were once able to achieve has been stymied temporarily but of course the good work of the churc must go on so they are working ceaselessly between bouts of sex parties at the vatican.
Maybe after more than a 1700 year history of child rape in the Church our present day bishops will not longer be able to practice the black art of pretend ignorance when they mouth the mealy words of "I did'nt know it was a crime to have sex with children" even if it was forced sex and even if they threatened them with eternal perpetual horrific punishment and spied on them from the confessional and then lent on our brothers in politics to come down hard on them in the community or to use the Catholic Mafia police to involuntarily incarcerate those who became loud about it. The Popes prisons (Australian Mental Health facilities) still hold many who have medicated into silence.
The only real duty of care for a Catholic is designed to keep an endless supply of children for the sexual gratification of Catholic clergy so that they can crow amongst their delusional counterparts that they had not broken their vow of celibacy.
And the last thing the bishops and psychologically compromised Catholics want is for the suffering to stop - seems that is why they must oppose medicinal cannabis, trauma aware and trauma informed counselling along with evidence based psychology and science as the last thing a good Catholic wants is to see someone stress free and happy for a brief moment as that is simply not allowed.
You only get that type of delusional thinking after successful psychological entrapment of the mind and deeply embedded trauma forced into the minds of defenceless children.
