It takes enormous courage. Look at how the orthodox communities close ranks when someone is "outed" as a molester or similar. The "stoolie" is treated as a pariah. These clergy folks are losing their communities AND their jobs. With no real training for anything else, they have to face the rest of their lives in a way they never thought. And I'll bet the divorce rate is huge.

Job/community/family. Sometimes facing the truth enacts a very large toll.
