Default Vatican blasts anti-Catholic 'hate' campaign

This news article for me encapsulates the reasoning as to why there is such a media onslaught with a small percentage of Catholic Priests engaging in pedophilia.

"The pope defends life and the family, based on marriage between a man and a woman, in a world in which powerful lobbies would like to impose a completely different" agenda, Spanish Cardinal Julian Herranz, head of the disciplinary commission for Holy See officials, said on the radio.

By now, it's a cultural contrast," Sodano told the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano. "The pope embodies moral truths that aren't accepted, and so, the shortcomings and errors of priests are used as weapons against the church."
