Can't escape the gothic

 It's all around you, you know.

To offset the stench of the church's crimes?

Ironically the nuns didn't have much involvement in the abuse scandal. Had they been able to be priests, that may have lessened the extent of it. Maybe not ok to generalize but my thought is women would be less apt to ignore observed abuse than men.

They were less involved in sexual abuse crimes, yes. But in Canada's residential school system, they were involved in the physical, mental, spiritual and cultural abuse of forced assimilation. I suspect the situation was not dissimilar in the USA.
