..after all the press, the money, and the harm. Why does the Church not defrock and get rid of these predators?

I sometimes wonder if properly dealing with these guys and allowing local law enforcement to investigate would turn up even worse secrets about the church.

I think Catholicism causes pedophilia. The priests must repress their sexual urges. Fvcking a woman or a man would likely out them, but touching an innocent child, increases the chance they'll be able to keep they have a sex drive secret.

Catholicism does not cause pedophilia, but it's pretty easy to figure out why there are problems with pedophilia in the catholic church. Here's why:

Not allowing priests to get married means that men who want to marry are going to be less likely to take the job. So, the only people who are going to be incentivized to take the job are men who are not interested in marrying women.

So, asexuals, gay men, and pedophiles among others are not disincentivized.

Now, if you're a pedophile, you're more likely to become a priest because you're (1) going to be in a position of (a) power and (b) trust, in (2) a community which will expose you to many children, with (3) very little oversight. So, if you're a pedophile who is a priest you have a maximal opportunity to sexually exploit children, with the least likelihood of being caught.

The priesthood is basically "the ideal" position for a pedophile, that's why there are so many pedophile priests. It's not that hard to figure out.
