Many homosexual leaders have admitted that
there is a natural link between
a homosexual orientation and child sexual abuse.
By Brian W. Clowes and David L. Sonnier
The Church has always had a small number of priests and other religious who have taken advantage of their positions of authority and influence in order to gain sexual favors or to take advantage of the helpless. The problem of clerical child sexual molestation, particularly in the United States, has been widely exposed and publicized over the last several years. The numerous recent revelations have exposed the problem as much deeper and more widespread than most would have previously believed.
During the current crisis, homosexual activists within and outside the Catholic Church have done everything they could to divert attention away from even the possibility that there may be a higher percentage of homosexuals among the priesthood than in the general public, and that this may be the root of the problem of child sexual molestation within the Church. It is particularly the link between homosexuality and child molestation that they seek to deny.
For example, Dignity USA kicked off its Stop Blaming Gay Priests campaign during the meeting of the United States Catholic Bishops Conference in Washington, D.C., November 10-13, 2002. The group said, DigntyUSA [sic] is calling on the U.S. Catholic bishops to stop blaming gay priests for the clergy sexual abuse scandal. All credible evidence discounts any link between the molestation of children and homosexuality.1

Good to point out that this article was not written in response to the current crisis (a/k/a 2009-10), but as a result of the US crisis (a/k/a 2000-2002).
This is not rocket science. Parents more than room-temperature IQ and/or common sense keep their children away from public schools and organized religions.
Most of the abuse occurs IN the family as I understand it.
Obviously, you didn’t even read the article you posted.
A 1988 study of 229 convicted child molesters published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that 86% of pedophiles described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.9
Are you trying to say that 86% of families are headed by "homosexual or bisexual" people?
Many homosexuals tend to focus on self and youth.
Pedophelia can be a natural extension of a narciccism that focuses on physical beauty and maintaining youth - a trait homosexual pedophiles share with many heterosexual pedophiles.
There are other causes outside this paradgm however, such as sadists who will go after a child to hurt them regardless of gender, or stoners who get aroused and look for any place to get relief when they are high.
The biggest problem within the Church is not that there were people in it that sought sexual gratification from children. That the church did not immediately focus on healing those children and making them whole - and still does not - is the problem. A very, very, big problem.
Churches overall now do a credible job of trying to weed out and stop pedophiles. Churches overall now do a crappy job of healing hurt children and still often tend to make the children feel outcast and blamed.
I'm refering to other stats that I hope will be forthcoming from Salvation.
It is much harder to get a prosecution and conviction when the abuse occurs within the home.
No. it's for the stats.
Noe maybe YOU didn't "read" the article.
Few homes have the financial resources that are available to the bureaucracies of schools and religions to bypass, cover up, reassign, and continue to perpetuate their abuse.
Now that’s a grim bit of humor. Rather like saying a drunk can be entrusted with a wine cellar since he favored beer over wine.
It is a smoke screen.
Like I said above,
Thanks for the post. We added it to our article:
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
You go to your local rehab facility, AA hall, what have you and find and talk to people who were sexually abused as children. Or look online at sites like Pandora's Aquarium and After Silence. Talk to a lot of people and see where most of their abuse occured. After YOU do your homework, I will debate you as much as you wish.
“... AND ROME DID NOTHING EXCEPT MOVE THE CHILD MOLESTING PRIESTS TO ANOTHER DIOCESE!!”
False. A lie. Try again.
