If it insists that pedophiles are gay, and continues to discover pedophiles in the priesthood – qite a few of them, then it must be hiring gay priests. Maybe there is a test for gayness they can administer. However since there is no evidence whatsoever that pedophiles are gay, they might do better to take a look at their own organisation before blaming homosexuals who are no different in their range of behaviours than any other group – and the vatican ought to know that pedophilia is more about power and inability to relate to one’s peers sexually than it is about homo- or heterosexuality. As to abusive behaviour – well who better to recognise that than the vatican?

Violations of their fundamental rights? What about the fundamental rights of gays to marry, or adopt children. What about their rights against discrimination? He says there’s a consensus between societies to certain kinds of sexual behavior that must be forbidden by law including pedophilia and incest. What a feeble attempt to demonize gays by associating these crimes as if they’re the ones committing them.

The Vatican and the Catholic church are playing the victims now? The real victims are molested children, women AND gays. I would love to know Who has prosecuted and why.

Seriously? Does calling someone a bigot qualify as an “attack”?
