16. That's just the cover up part

It assumes the RCC knows about the child rape to begin with, which almost certainly happens just a fraction of the time. Priests are venerated as godly by their congregation and placed on a high pedestal. As such they have an inherited aspect of trust and infallibility. Every victim has to be thinking who is going to believe them over a priest? Many victims never reported the crimes to anyone and many more were summarily ignored as uncredible before anyone documented anything.

So the simplest answer is they got away with it because the entire RCC has a culture of child rape, and despite pope Frank's lip service, they have done virtually nothing to change that culture.
