That's stupid. Some bishops have been so, some are afflicted themselves with the disorder. Unfortunately when homosexuals find themselves in positions of authority they staff the positions under their control with homosexuals and it spreads until it gets rooted out which operation has begun.
The Church is chock full of active homosexuals (many of whom cannot keep their paws off of teenage boys), and the rooting out has NOT been started (or even really contemplated).

Actually,the worst of it is past. Most of the offending priests have are retired or put under wraps. These lawsuits almost all refer to things done 20-30 years ago. The scandal now is becaue the few rotten bishops ran out of funds for hush money. And Rome does not keep Stalinist-complete control on the Dioceses; Rome does not micromanage them, nor does it have a gang of undercover informants in the manner of the government of a State. Even the seminaries are being cleaned out and look, the "Catholic" colleges are up against it now, to be either Catholic or drop the name and ties. However, those of a certain mind about Catholics or perhaps about Christians see this all primarily as a chance to bring the Church low, or to bring Religion low, or whatever. For such people the "the Church is all fags" is just another in their aerenal of slogans and does not relate to reality and certainly not to knowledge.
