“The evidence that homosexual priests account for the vast majority of sexual abuse cases in the Catholic Church is uncontested—80 percent of the minors victimized have been male and most have been post-pubescent—so when comedians take shots at abusing priests, we all know who they are really talking about. That includes Kathy Griffin, who last night called priests “kid f******.” For this she was wildly cheered by her huge homosexual audience. “
“No one knows for sure what percent of priests are homosexuals, though it is safe to say it is higher than found in the general population; it is also safe to say that less than half of those in ministry today are homosexual. Therefore, to paint all priests as homosexual molesters is unfair: most priests are heterosexual and have never been involved in sexual abuse. It is even unfair to homosexual priests: while they have definitely caused most of the damage, there is no evidence that most homosexual priests are molesters.”
“One more thing. Since it is very difficult for homosexuals to enter the priesthood these days, the rate of sexual abuse is nearly non-existent. Which means Griffin is running out of copy.”
“When journalists and commentators discuss sexual abuse, they rarely offer a graphic description of the sex act; they properly assume that readers get the gist of what occurred when they say someone was raped. [Note: the vast majority of priestly abuse cases did not involve rape.] But when it comes to priests, a different standard is evident: the most detailed descriptions are offered.”
“We know what’s going on: get Catholics so riled up that they will demand the Church adopt the liberal agenda on sexuality. They just don’t get it: it was the detour from orthodoxy that allowed the abuse scandal to take hold in the first place.”
“But when it comes to priests, a different standard is evident:”
e to apply the same standards as applicable to us mere atheists and liberals, the entire organisation’s activities would be under scrutiny. We would try to hunt down every single priest who abused a human being (does not matter if they are child or adult, gay or straight) and give them a fair trial. A fair trial means that if they are guilty they will go to real jail. Then we will try every single person who was complicit in protecting these priests from justice for aiding, abetting and obstruction. Those who are guilty will also have to do hard time.
