Questions that are NEVER asked....!

I've just been listening to another one of those radios programmes, you know, the ones like the TV programmes who say that they pride themselves on informing us - the public - to the absolute best of their ability.
They're probable not going to like this article, like a lot of other people, but I feel that it is now necessary to ask the questions.
I had hoped that somebody, somewhere, would take the risk of getting fired by the Beeb or someone else, and ask those questions that are NEVER asked, and to which most people would love an answer.
At the moment, a great deal of talk in all the Media about the Church (particularly the Catholic one, but I daresay that others are just as concerned in the subject).
Paedophilie, homosexuality, simple - straight forward questions about life - questions that touch everyone, and to which we never get an answer, mainly because the questions are never asked!
I don't know how many Priests, nuns, vicars, clergymen and women there are all over the World, but it must be one "hell" of a lot!

Photo not from me - I never see such nice things happening!
A large number of them have subjected themselves to the "celibacy" practice, and would appear to be having problems!
I would like to jump in at the deep end, and pose those questions which are never asked, and the replies to which would not only interest millions of people, but would go a long way to explaining the situation. Do they seek sexual gratification otherwise - within the close confines of their environments such as Monasteries etc.
Do they seek this relief within "forbidden" sexual practices, either with and upon other members of their community, voluntary or otherwise, male or female.
Do they offer to other members of their communities such gratifications
1. Medecine tells us that "celibacy" voluntary or otherwise can and does lead to an extreme level of frustration and stress, to all sorts of mental and physical disorders. Those Religious people who practice "celibacy" - both male and female, do they masturbate as a relieving factor? Do they practice self-flagellation and if so - why - hidden as a Religious belief, or simply to relieve those sexual pressures?
2. In the case of those religious people who have been subjected to sexual abuse did they report such incidents? If not - why not, and do they believe that their career would have suffered by reporting the matter, and do they believe that their superiors would have taken any action?
Did they, themselves, find pleasure in the sexual abuse, and - if so - did they seek any advice within or outside of the Institution "Church"? Did they feel any remorse or guilt? If not - why not?
3. In the case of those who practiced the sexual abuse did they confess to anyone? Did they seek medical or other help? Did they feel any remorse or guilt? If not - why not? Would they be prepared to accept the punishment of both their Church and their Society if and when the facts turned up in the open?
Do they know of such practices within their Organizations now, or in the past, and would they be prepared to "come clean" to the General Public - their "sheep" - their "congregation" - their "faithful" - even at the risk of serious consequences?
4. The question to everyone - within and outside of the Church Institutions - Are you prepared to debate these questions? Are you prepared to accept responsability for the harm done both to victims and culprits.
