I can assure you, as a former catholic priest, that the r.c. clergy hold themselves to a different and less stringent set of standards than they hold the "laity". It's kind of a "we are in the know and they cant be trusted to know" mentality. Been there for centuries. We have certainly seen grave evidence of this in recent times.
