That is a rather big oversimplification. The Jay Report (which is being conducted by a secular organ) is merely stating that the 60's made some priests think everything was OK, and made an already bad problem worse. And that's only one factor - the conclusion of the report is that there was no one predominant cause of the spike in child molestation cases - not the presence of homosexual priests, not clerical celibacy - nothing. What helped stop it, IIRC, was a Vatican crackdown that took the better part of the decade (one of the major figures behind it is now Pope) thanks to that enemy of all that is good, the bureaucracy (consisting of bishops who were engaging in turf wars... seriously, diocesan turf wars are like Flame Wars, only withour swearing).
TLDR: No one cause, except maybe sheer incompetence at personnel management on the part of the bishops.
Sorry. It's just a Berserk Button of mine.
Edit: Fuck, ninja'd two posts above.
