Anyway, a big difference between the Catholic church and a Protestant church or a Jewish synagogue is how the organization is set up. Most churches and synogogues are independent entities. They are basically on their own. They do their own hiring/firing. They are not part of a larger organization with control over them. There's not a bureaucracy to ignore what happened, cover it up and and simply place the offender somewhere else.
Great point on church organization. The large bureaucracy of the RCC did not help, but that is not an excuse for not addressing the situation.
