I actually think the priesthood attracts some people with sexual issues as a 'safe place' in the presence of God. Which is another contributor to the bad rep.
The Mormon prophet is always a married man Booby. I don't envy that wife role.

I also doubt that a peadophile who is married would be sated of his/her compulsion to molest children because they have access to sex with their wife/husband/partner. It may be the case that if a person who is so inclined has children of their own, they may molest their own children. I'm guessing we would not hear as much of those cases.
I also agree with Blissed Out about the catholic church appealing to people who are aware that they may have various sexual issues or inappropriate thoughts, seeking some kind of healing or shelter.
As Delirium said, the lack of transparency and the tendency for the church to close ranks around an offender is completely inappropriate, but also predictable that a big business would not want to concede fault lest it open them up to legal action.
Govt agencies DO cover it up. Please, it is dangerous to think that transparency or religin is to blame for peadophilia.
