The recent punishment of Fr. Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ, has produced a lot of feelings. Conservatives feel bad for the Legionaries because they can forget ever having the joy and prestige of a canonized founder. Liberals indulge in the sick satisfaction that a community known for its strictness and traditionalism also has its problems with clerical sexual abuse.
For me it's just more evidence of how the church suffers with the disease of sexualized power. Sexual sins are often sinful not because they are about sex, but because they are about the abuse of power. One party in the sexual act has power and the other doesn't. In pornography I can look at you but you can't look at me. In prostitution, I have money and you don't. In clerical sexual abuse, I have ecclesiastical or (imaginary) divine power and you don't. When these imbalances of power express themselves through our sexuality, we have the recipe for some of the most damaging sins we can imagine.
Celibacy is a great charism, given by the Spirit for the building up of the church. But it's too hazardous a spiritual path to take without also letting go of power. If celibacy becomes a form of power and presige, we are setting ourselves up for sexualized violence.
