Added DiffLines:

* Father Donald from ''VideoGame/RidesWithStrangers'' will freely admit that he rapes, tortures, and kills little boys if you ask him what the worst thing he ever done was. That doesn't stop him from presumably killing the protagonist if you lose, though.

Given the implicit trust associated with the profession, this is typically portrayed as the ultimate betrayal of innocence and a MoralEventHorizon for everyone involved. Due to the cultural impact of the late twentieth-early twenty-first century child molestation scandals in the Catholic Church, Catholic priests are by far the most likely to be involved in a molestation accusation in modern media, although other religions are not immune. Of course, in real life pedophiles also can be a [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24075588 a teacher, caregiver]], babysitter, or family friend, or even a random person online[[note]]Though for this to happen, a meeting must be arranged ''first,'' and personal information given that any parent worth his/her salt teaches their children to ''never'' give to strangers, making the terrible internet DeathTrap [[NewMediaAreEvil not nearly as much of one as those who fear it believe]].[[/note]] than a priest, simply because - just like murderers - pedophiles exist in all professions and at all levels of society. Hell, they can even be [[Creator/JimmySavile a children's TV presenter protected by having friends in high places]].

* ''The Least of These'' features Father Andre James ([[GreysAnatomy Isaiah Washington]]) being transferred to a small, out of the way boarding school after the disappearance of a former priest. As the movie proceeds, much darker things are revealed in both the cases of the disappeared priest and his own past.[[labelnote:*]]Father Andre is not the PedophilePriest himself. In fact, he actively discourages even light sexual shenanigans, as we see in one scene where he chooses to dine in the main hall with the boys instead of in the private dining room with the older priests; he also takes the opportunity to confiscate the [[PornStash dirty magazines]] one of the boys brings to dinner, dumping them right in the trash and calling out one of the boys who was looking at them, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny without even looking over his shoulder]].[[/labelnote]]

* On ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', Sam and Dean investigate a DemonicPossession report and encounter Crowley disguised as a Catholic priest investigating the same report (to see if it's one of the demons that serve him). When the {{Muggle|s)) who owns the house asks how they know each other, "Father" Crowley says that Dean used to be a "delicious" choir boy. He later implies that paedophilia is actually pretty tame compared to what some ''actual'' priests are into.

* Septon Utt from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. The fact that he is the only member of the [[PsychoForHire Brave Companions]] who is even close to sympathetic really says a lot -- at least Utt feels guilt over what he does, while the rest of the Brave Companions revel in their vileness.

* Parodied in one of Mike Birbiglia's routines. He mentions that he was once an alter boy and, in the same breath, adds, "And before you ask, the answer is 'No'. [[RefugeInAudacity I guess I looked like a talker]]."
