We’ve been writing a lot lately about the Catholic Bishops. Today, Dan Savage has a post on Catholic priests, partly inspired by cartoons provided by his “good Irish Catholic mother.” Dan dissects the latest report from the Bishops on the sex abuse scandal — the one that absolves the gays:
Despite the fact that most of the victims of clergy sex abuse were boys, the study — commissioned by the nation’s Roman Catholic bishops — found that sexual identity was not “a predictor of abuse.” What was? According to the authors of the study the Church has to distinguish between sexual identity and behavior and be on guard against pedophile priests, not gay priests, “and to look at who the offender had access to when seeking victims.” This study is going to throw a serious wrench in the Vatican’s efforts to pin the whole clergy sex abuse scandals on teh gays.
The Bishops protected the pedophiles for decades. That’s why Dioceses are going bankrupt. And, that’s why the Bishops are trying to change the subject to gay marriage.
