The main reason why abuse cases in the Catholic Churches drew far more media attention than, for example, cases in schools was because the Catholic Church cases were systematically covered up.

Very simply, this is when a priest is depicted as or accused of being a pedophile or child molester -- in short, a holy man with an entirely unholy interest in children.

--> ''[The song] from a story I read about Boston priest John Geoghan who had been arrested for child abuse and the church kept moving him from parish to parish. The Supreme Court tried and convicted him of molesting 150 kids over a 30-year span and while he was serving his sentence another inmate broke into his cell and murdered him. I stumble upon these stories, they don't necessarily have to be directly personal but it's things like this that move me. I'm a big advocate for children's rights and this song looks at sexual abuse. It's not against the church or anything, it's more about that individual betrayal between adult and child. I don't have the answers but hopefully if I sing about a certain issue it will get people talking about it.''

* In the ''VideoGames/{{Reincarnation}}'' game, ''The Clergy of Unholy'', the demon protagonist, whose job it is to track down Reincarnies (those that have EscapedFromHell and reincarnated on earth) and send them back to Hell, takes on a Reincarny who turns out to be one of these. When the demon discovers a drugged-up altar boy in Saul's bedchamber while searching through his church, it provides all the proof the demon needs to send Saul back to Hell.

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 other religions are not immune.
