I personally looked into that case, and all the evidence pointed to that priest being guilty. Innocent until proven guilty, to me, only matters when
direct punishment is involved. Any reasonable doubt he could be innocent, yes some, but is he guilty, still most likely.
Using you're previous mentalities over issues, or groups, to interpret any new information though, is a human flaw. I mostly think of this when I try
to decide my stance on controversial issues, especially religion. "Am I being too lenient on accepting one side because of prior bias? Or is that
side genuinely making more sense."
People like their ego stroked by having their beliefs reinforced, and don't want to listen to things disagreeing with that. Unfortunate, but true,
even when they don't acknowledge it.
