There was a time when the abuse issues in the Catholic Church were first starting to be exposed.
Now, they were fully aware that they had the exact same issues that they too were covering up.
What did they choose to do?
They could have "learnt" and said "man, that looks bad and we know we have the same problem - but at least we can learn something and put processes in place to make sure we clean up our act".
They could have done nothing themselves but refrained from criticized the Catholic Church knowing that they had the same skeletons in their own closet.
What did they actually do?
They wen't full guns criticizing the Catholics for something they knew they were completely guilty of as well, painting themselves as 'the good guys where this sort of thing would never happen' but the only processes they put in place were to tighten up how cover-ups were managed and to make sure the local elders knew how to silence any incidents. They treated the Catholic abuse issue as a sales and marketing opportunity, nothing more.
Governing Body - you are WORSE than the Catholic Church. You could have learnt but refused to. You could have protected kids but only endangered them instead. You could have done the right thing and admitted your own issues but were only concerned with your own PR image and growth prospects.
I guess the secret's out now ...
Here's a FACT: you can never claim to be a spiritual paradise or God's representatives. The first has been proven false - the only paradise you provide is a pedophile paradise and I'm pretty sure any real god wouldn't want you.
