Special pass?

Take a look at this bloke, looks evil doesn't he, cold, heartless, eye's a bit too close together?

Of course if you know that he's a Catholic priest who's just been convicted of child sex crimes then it's easy to make these kinds of silly retrospective generalizations. Obviously we can't judge people's intentions by the way they look but equally we can't predict to what rancid antisocial depths they're prepared to descend by them belonging to any (supposedly morality giving) religion either. I look forward to the day when people don't automatically get a special pass just because they put the word priest, father, vicar, bishop or reverend in front of their names.
