There's been a lot of cases involving pedos in the church before and some people have seen Francisco as a hope for change in the church but well, he is very much involved. He is after all, the first jesuit pope.

Franciso absolved 2,000 pedophile priests in the past.

Pedophiles, or child abusers?

In my opinion, pedophilia is not wrong if one doesn't act on it. It can't really be helped, after all, just like a sexuality.

Theres no proof that it is an actual sexual preference. Nevertheless, they will act on it because they want to have an orgasm. And the Catholic church has been covering up child sexual abuse for years, its not a question of whether or not a priest acted on his urges - its how many acted on their urges with no repercussions.
