That too has become tradition.
I agree that specific criticism cannot be too harsh in the case of sexual abuse and the cover-up.
But your general criticism of Catholicism doesn't achieve anything. When I was a kid, the oecumenic movement was a big thing and that's how it is meant to be in my opinion, unification and not seperation of all Christians. One has to find the common ground and not emphasize the differences.
