How Long Do Catholics Put Up With This?

Seriously.  How is this okay?  Forget about the Vatican and Cardinal Dolan's outrageous statements that my committed monogamous relationship is the problem.  How long does a tax-exempt institution get to cover up raping small children with no consequences.  You know what, if I knew of a gay man who was raping a child, I would report him and beat him up.
You know why it ended in 2009 - IT DIDN'T.  But it was happening when they did the findings - that is as long as they have data.  It is a 2010 report!  There is no indication that they have stopped.
DUBLIN — The Roman Catholic Church in Ireland was covering up the sexual abuse of children by priests as recently as 2009, long after it issued guidelines meant to protect children, and the Vatican tacitly encouraged the cover-up by ignoring the guidelines, according to a scathing report issued Wednesday by the Irish government.
Alan Shatter, the Irish justice minister, called the findings “truly scandalous,” adding that the church’s earlier promises to report all abuse cases since 1995 to civil authorities were “built on sand.” Abuse victims called the report more evidence that the church sought to protect priests rather than children.
