So what, abuse and violence happen everywhere. The nice family father next door might just beat up his wife and children and nobody stops him either.
This is no excuse for all the structural errors of the Catholic church but I strongly dislike is the typical media exaggeration, the Catholic bashing (of course the Catholiban deserved to be bashed) and artifical moral disgust. It has been common to beat children until the fifties and later and even today some parents do it and nobody stops these abusers either.

I wouldn't even have considered to send my children if I had any to any religious school, a boarding school or any private school in general without all these reports.
Just use your brain and stay away from hardcore religious folks, they are usually nuts. Stick with the more liberal religious people and you should be fine.
