Church placed its own reputation above the protection of children in its care

The "Report of the Commission of Investigation into the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin" covered a period from 1975 to 2004.

It has laid bare a culture of concealment where church leaders prioritised the protection of their own institution above that of vulnerable children in their care. [my emphasis]

Is that news anymore? It makes one's blood boil how church leaders were abusing their trust, in the name of god! It reminds me of Dan Brown writing: religion [has] established itself as a tollbooth to heaven [The Lost Symbol].
