Why "most"? Why not "all"? Why does it take 10 years for an International organization to figure out how to deal with its own employees raping small children? Why after 10 years is there still "more progress" to be made?
With the current tragedy of children being raped and molested by clergy and elders in the Hasidic area of Brooklyn, and the entire community doing everything it can to conceal it and blame the victim, wouldn't it be nice if someone could say "This is how the Catholic church fixed it" rather than "the Catholic church has spent a decade trying to fix their own mess and they can't do it, don't know what to tell you"? Why can we pretty much guarantee (possibly even guess by name) that someone will insist even mentioning this story is being anti-Catholic or anti-Semetic or anti-Christian, rather than offer suggestions for how this needs to be fixed?
One more question - just saw this in my news feed a few articles below the first link:Answer Question

It's sad that they would choose to seek ways to keep the impression of infallibility over protecting the children. I find it equally interesting that these are supposed to be men of god with a greater understanding of the "divine", yet can't control their own urges, even if it means violating a child's body, trust and security. So many people defer to their clergy, taking their word and interpretation of the "holy" books, letting these men have so much control over their lives, but when they're proven to be merely human, they don't consider the implication that maybe they're no better than any other human - and can be just as criminal.
