"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
The idea that men and women have different roles to fill in marriage, society, or the church isn't unique to Catholicism. Some may find it old-fashioned, while others may see wisdom in it, but to call it "misogynistic" seems like a drastic overstatement to me.

For example, the idea that all allegations must be reported is very new in the secular law. I'm not even sure all states require it yet. There's also a whole different philosophy guiding today's policies. In the past, the Church would consult with psychologists and be told that the abusers could be cured and returned to duty. Public schools and the Boy Scouts did the same thing. The mental health profession has a different attitude now, and many institutions have had to develop new policies as a result.
