Why Do So Many Pedophiles Become Priests?

A difficult but fair question: Why would a pedophile, a man who craves sex with boys, go into the priesthood? Perhaps such a person truly believes that such behavior is not sinful, or maybe there is hope that once he becomes a priest he will be able to control his perverted sexual urges. The pedophile might become a priest simply because it gives him access to easy prey. While cynical and hard to accept, that may explains it best. How did this all get started, and where will it all end? When will the Catholic Church stop being such a friendly place for sexual abusers? (In October 2020, a large New York City Catholic diocese declared bankruptcy due to 200 sexual abuse lawsuits.)

  1. It's not strictly pedophilia; it's predatory homosexuality, as most of the victims appear to be young men rather than children. And the RCC will never change.
