They have not been strangely silent. If you don't know that already (and I wonder how you wouldn't know that having access to the Internet as you do), I suggest you use your Internet skills and search on comments by the good Archbishop and other bishops on the pedophile (really, homosexual) priest issue.
And by the way, you're not supposed to hi-jack a thread and bring up extraneous issues. Start your own thread if you want to discuss that issue.
Jeeez guys...I’m sorry to offend all of you...ok!
