Associated Press ^ | May 25, 2013 1:46 PM EDT

The second-highest official in the Archdiocese of Newark is stepping down in the wake of a sex scandal involving a former priest accused of violating an agreement with law enforcement barring him from working with children.

Church officials say Monsignor John Doran resigned Friday as vicar general and will no longer hold a leadership position with the archdiocese. Doran signed the agreement the former priest had reached with prosecutors in 2007. …

Good. One small step toward cleaning house.

I don’t know anything about Archbishop John Myers, but I wonder if he needs to get shoveled out too? Regrettably, you can’t trust anything that AP says about Catholic scandals, so I really don’t know.

Not to worry - won’t be long and he can become a scoutmaster.

If some Roman Catholic priests are allowed to be married (which is,in fact,the case) then it's hard for me to see why all of them can't.Either Christ wants *all* of His vicars to be allowed to marry or none of them.Married priests would go a long way toward solving two of the Church's biggest problems (at least here)...1) a growing shortage of priests...2) the fact that such a noticeable portion of current priests are of an immoral "orientation".Although I can certainly see why Christ might want His vicars to be celibate for periods of time...just as I can see why He would want *me* to abstain from eating meat on Fridays (for example)...it's very difficult for me to see why He'd want his vicars to be celibate for THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.

I'm just sayin'.....

Sadly not until the Pope purges homosexuals from the priesthood and makes celibacy ( the portal by which homosexuals enter) optional, these atrocities will not end. Homosexuals have gravely hurt the Catholic church. The Boy Scout leaders are fools. Politically correct behavior is not only self deceptive but harmful.

The priest was barred from working with “children.” Would that be male children, or female children? Usually when there is a problem of child rape, it’s either one sex or the other - not both.

Doesn’t celibacy apply to anal sex too?

The conviction being vacated due to judicial error is irrelevant. Fugee should have been dismissed from the clerical state. Myers dropped the ball and the Holy See should cashier him too.

A specious at best argument. If marriage was the panacea you think it would be then there would be no shortage of Priests in the 21 Churches in the Eastern Rites that ordain, as a norm, married men. That isn't the case. Also, explain the behavior of all of these baptists since you can't use the celibacy made them do it crutch.

it's very difficult for me to see why He'd want his(sic) vicars to be celibate for THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.

Then you need to brush up on your knowledge of Scripture to alleviate that difficulty.

If the perp is de-frocked he’ll probably become a Boy Scout leader.

It’s funny. If he were a public school teacher, this story would be downplayed.

Nonsense. What's your explanation for the pedophilia and ephebophilia that takes place in protestant denominations and in public schools since you can't blame those crimes on celibacy?

Celibacy leads to a disproportionate number of homosexuals entering the priesthood. When they reach a critical mass, they achieve real administrative power and are able to operate much more freely than if the overwhelming majority of priests were heterosexual. That is true in any organization that gives homosexuals full access and proximity to young boys.

The persecution of the Russian Orthodox Church under Stalin provides great insight into celibacy; the Orthodox clergy could be coerced under threat to their families, while Latin-Rite Catholic priests could go to their deaths in Nazi and Bolshevik concentration camps/gulags without similar concerns (and they did). The upper echelons of the Eastern Rite Churches are celibate priests; the married priests do not advance.

Also, as others are pointing out, there is no shortage of married scout leaders, teachers, ministers and rabbis who commit the same crimes.

Soon it will be leaders of the Boy Sodomitess of America doing the same.

If he was to be released from the clerical state he would no longer be the Diocese’s concern. I can just imagine the howls if even a semblance of authority over his actions was removed from the Church and placed fully in State hands.

Not being able to marry a woman does not change a heterosexual man into a homosexual. Radical homosexuals have been infiltrating all Judeo Christian religious organizations, government schools, Boy and Girl Scouts, trade unions, government and so forth at least since the 60s

Look what just happened to the BSA. They barred homos from the group after decades of molestation and now are abandoning the safety of children to keep the donation train running.

So, once again, what causes homosexuals to achieve admnistrative power in protestant denominations and public education since you can't blame it on celibacy?

Seems to me all the liberal Catholics would agree that the discipline of celibacy isn’t valuable and should be ended. I mean try to find one liberal wackadoo Catholic who digs things like abortion, ‘gay marriage’ and homo-clergy in relationships who also thinks the discipline of celibacy is valuable and should be continued.

“the fact that such a noticeable portion of current priests are of an immoral “orientation”.

Compared to when, the 60s 70’s and 80’s? The abuse peaked in the late 70s-early 80’s and went down just as steeply. My guess is that gay men quit becoming priests as the broader culture accepted them. So why join a group that’s never going to change its position on acting on homosexual desires?
