The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

Two-thirds of US bishops let priests accused of sexual abuse keep working! The Majority! 111 out of 178!
"The 111 bishops' involvement took many forms, from ignoring warnings about suspicious behavior to keeping priests on the job after admissions of wrongdoing, diagnoses of sexual disorders, legal settlements, even criminal convictions.

Among the 111 are all eight cardinals who lead American archdioceses, bishops in at least 40 states, and most members of the bishops committee that drafted the policy up for discussion."
(That's the new policy on sexual abuse that the leadership is discussing right now in Dallas.) Does it strike you that a committee comprised almost entirely of these guys is going to be ever so slightly invested in saving face and preserving their own positions rather than in demanding accountability?

John Derbyshire: "Wherever there is a jackboot stomping on a human face there will be a well-heeled Western liberal to explain that the face does, after all, enjoy free health care and 100 percent literacy."
