VALLETTA, Malta - Pope Benedict XVI met with a group of clerical abuse victims on Sunday and promised them the church would do everything in its power to bring justice to victims and protect young people in the future.
The Vatican said Benedict expressed his shame and sorrow at the pain the men and their families suffered and prayed with them during the meeting at the Vatican's embassy in Malta.
He prayed with them and assured them that the Church is doing, and will continue to do, all in its power to investigate allegations, to bring to justice those responsible for abuse and to implement effective measures designed to safeguard young people in the future," a Vatican statement said.
While I agree with your post, I honestly can't think of any instances where Protestant churches have actively shielded child rapists, especially on such a grand scale.

The priesthood attracts monsters in the same way a police force, military, government, all Protestant churches attracts monsters.

Of course it will, just like these special super high tar cigarettes I'm selling actually prevent lung cancer and the 'see-through' children's trousers I'm about to launch will similarly deter paedophiles whether they're ecclesiastical or not.
