This is what the Pope actually had to say about the abuse
Anybody who is Catholic can make a statement it doesn't mean they speak for the Catholic Church. The sources in the articles are not in line with what the Church has actually said.

No one is blaming the victims of sexual abuse.Â I like every other parent want any pedophile to be arrested.Â I believe the abuse in the Catholic Church is the same as sexual abuse everywhere, schools, churches, homes.Â They say one in four people are sexually abused, this isn't just happening in Catholic Churches.Â Pedophiles hide out where ever they can have easy access to children and where they can gain peoples trust easier.Â We know more about sexual predators now then ever before so the way we deal with pedophiles has changed too.Â I'm a mother, and I know I want all pedifiles locked away for life because I know now they can't be rehabilitiaed.

If you think this is only a problem of the Catholic Church go to family watch dog and see how many convicted sex offenders live near your home, its chilling. In decades past most of these people would never have been arrested for their crimes let alone tracked by the police. We treat pedifiles more aggressively now because we know more, same goes the the Catholic Church.
