Murder: Also Often Considered A Form Of Abuse

Hey, for all the flak the Catholic Church has had over child abuse scandals, at least the Pope never issued a statement claiming that the real problem was that all this child rape may make people think worse of the Church.

To be fair, the Pope may not have issued such a statement, but the Catholic leadership's belief that publicity would be bad for the Church does appear to be their motive for covering the whole thing up and never doing anything to stop priests they knew to be predatory paedophiles. The deal they did with the Irish government to guarantee no prosecutions does not speak well of them.
