Are you meaning the Catholic Church, or the churches in Uganda, or the killing of the abortion doctor (Tiller) who was killed at church, or just scandal in general in Churches?
As Jaggedfrost said, it depends on what church and situation you're referring to.
I have some fervent opinions on all that. Maybe I will get around to writing a hub about it. In meantime, I can only say a few things------the true Church is in the hearts of all those who follow Jesus Christ/God; man-made, ritualistic churches fail at their very basis (I consider especially the Catholic Church a man-made church, albeit with some Christians in it as well), leaving the door wide open to sin which will remain unbridled until good reformation is ultimately made. Forgiveness requires accountability, not hiding behind a church door. Religion will fail, but Christ never fails.
I can't answer more specifically because I dunno exactly what scandals you meant.
