Real Life : not an example, just a fact. Catholic religion basically rates the crime of a priests having sex with a woman as worse than having sex with a child, because they consider the female body as more impure. Not all branches of Christianity accept the council where it was ruled that souls enter the female bodies later in gestation than male ones (because souls are pure, it's difficult for them to enter pre-sinning bodies), though.

What's your source for that? I'm a lifelong Catholic and I've never heard anything of the kind. In fact, your first point is absurd on its face — we don't have an absolute ranking system for sins. (We couldn't if we wanted to. Context and mental state are integral to the concept of sin.)

Why the fuck is this under ‘No real life examples’? Either a person is both an ordained priest (or rabbi, or whatever) (hence No True Scotsman doesn’t apply) and a pædophile, or he’s not, or he’s awaiting trial/verdict (and will later be removed from the list). What’s there to ‘argue’ about?

People are not created by an author in order to accomplish something in a story. That is what this wiki is about, not real life events.

That doesn’t make any sense. This Wiki has a LOT of real life events. Even Genre Savvy and Wrong Genre Savvy have real life events. Nowhere in the article description does it say that the priest’s acts (or alleged acts) have to be used as a plot point.

^There are issues in which Real Life examples are just unwanted. This is one of them. Please see No Real Life Examples, Please! and Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment.

Pulled the following Zero Context Examples:

  • Hand of God
  • Sex Crimes and the Vatican
  • Our Fathers
  • Twist of Faith
  • The Boys of St. Vincent
  • Song for a Raggy Boy
  • Bad Education
  • Scary Movie 3
  • Doubt

They all need elaboration.

Seeing a 'relationship' with Pedophile Priest makes me want to giggle. There's even 'kids' section!

Is it my faulty memory, or was there an early episode of Reno911 where a new priest was going door-to-door introducing himself to the neighborhood as the new priest, followed by The Reveal of one of the show regular officers and "in accordance with Megan's Law, I'm a registered sex offender..."
