At What Point do We Acknowledge That Child Abuse is a RCC Sacrament?

Five-hundred-and-forty-seven pupils at one of Germany’s most famous Roman Catholic choir schools were physically or sexually abused between 1945 and 2015, an independent report has found, with some boys likening the institution to “prison, hell or a concentration camp”.

The 440-page report chronicles teachers at the school in Regensburg doling out physical violence including slapping boys in the face so hard the marks could be seen the next day, whipping them with wooden sticks and violin bows and subjecting them to severe beatings.
One might think that they would eventually get around to realizing that they have a systemic problem with people in authority within their organization abusing children.

Back when the first big stories of child abuse in the RCC began to come out, there were people who dismissed it as an American problem. But it's everywhere and even now, the RCC keeps shifting their pervo priests around.

Of course, it's wider than that. It's in all religious entities. But the RCC, because of its hierarchal structure, has a serious problem with child abusers within its ranks. They don't seem to be making great strides at fixing their problems.
