** "Come home (Cardinal Pell)" is a direct appeal/accusation to one of priests alleged to have covered up the abuse to face a court in Australia. It references Gerald Risdale, Pell's former flatmate and one of the most prolific abusers. The money from the sale of that song was used to fly victims to Rome so they could be physically present when Pell gave his evidence via video link.

* In ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole'', the protagonist is attacked by two of these while he enters a storage room at the church to meditate. They serve mostly as a tutorial for telegraphed attacks, as they have moves that cause heavy damage (and Grossed Out status) but take a turn to charge and are easy to dodge. Oh, and one of them uses [[CrossesTheLineTwice a rosary that doubles as anal beads]] as a whip.

The accused need not even be guilty; the simple accusation of pedophilia/molestation is usually enough to set off a PaedoHunt, which a GenreSavvy villain may take full advantage of as a RedHerring to cover up or distract from their crimes. Another way this trope can be used on a non-villainous character is that he has joined the church not only to get an excuse to remain a bachelor, but also as a way to fight against [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny his urges]] and [[ChasteHero remain chaste]].

There was one skit were the [[{{Thememobile}} Popemobile]] is used to isolate the choirboys from a flock of such priests, forcing the Pope and his cardinals to walk besides.

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 to 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 in neither Protestant ministers nor the clergy of other religions are by any means immune.
