Religious sex perverts
To have no privacy where people are concerned really is a nightmare, but the reason for this is that man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart. To be under surveillance from men is to be under the gaze of those who do not see us as we are - worse, who inevitably see us as we are not. It's not bad to be known for real; in fact our loneliness in the world is that we are not really known to anybody, even if people have us under a microscope. But it's awful to be under the inspection of those who do not and cannot see us as we really are. If a perfect stranger doesn't understand me, whatever. If someone close to me does not, that's pretty painful. If God were that way only more so, Hitchens would be absolutely right. But God sees as it is and needs no explanations, only admissions of truth, and can even explain us to ourselves. It's one of the main ways that I know God is real.
Whatever God sees is no longer darkness and no longer has to do with death.
However, all of us to some degree agree mistakenly with Hitchens, and as we see in the gospels, especially religious rulers. Their audience is men, and not God, and once that's true, it's all trouble. Once our audience is men instead of God, we have to take care of appearance instead of reality, because appearance and not reality is what men see. Because we never really do see, we must incessantly search things out, whereas God is free from that because he knows everything that he has made from the inside out. "It is the glory of kings to search out a matter, but it is the glory of God to conceal a matter." With God you're just not getting spied on; instead God many times conceals our secrets from those who ought not to know them. Many times, in fact, God conceals himself.
Accordingly, religion is mostly about making sure that if God doesn't show up, we can feel like he has, remaining unaware that he has not. People don't necessarily want God, but they want to feel like they have God whether they do or not - hence the popularity of idols. So since religion is about concealing the absence of God, it stands to reason that especially in religion the absence of God will go undetected.
In fact, it's very good for us to know when God is absent because we might want to know why and do something about it. Otherwise, religion can help us kid ourselves better that we're not atheists, but in his absence bad things will take his place. No wonder then that in the gospels it's the religious people who are most zealous for God and most full of the devil.
So for sexual perversion to show up among religious leaders is to be expected. In addition to the foregoing, there is a particular vulnerability here for Christian leaders in particular. The body of believers stands in relation to God as wife. Leaders that lead the disciples astray after themselves, who think the congregation is theirs, are committing adultery with the Lamb's wife, and so God will often judge that by giving them up to commit adultery with others too. And this happens because of the emptiness that comes of seeking ultimate satisfaction in people, who can never really know us, instead of in God. Religion makes that easy to do. Religion is dangerous.
