Wow, that's mind boggling. You'd think the Catholic Church problem would have tempered this idea.

"Wow, that's mind boggling. You'd think the Catholic Church problem would have tempered this idea."

The secular media have refused to draw the obvious connection between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of young men by priests. To the media, such a connection is unsophisticated and even bigoted, e.g., "only a small number of homosexuals are child-abusers - the problem is not homosexuality, but pedophilia." The undisputed existence of a homosexual "cabal" in many Catholic (and Episcopalian) seminaries is ignored. Instead, the media has seen these scandals as an indictment of celibacy, as if the thought process of the priests was, "Gee, since I can't have sex with women, I guess I'll have sex with the altar boys." Similarly, the media will not admit that homosexuals or pedophiles seeking opportunities for contact with vulnerable young males will now look to the Scouts as a window of opportunity. In short, this whole issue is a manifiestation of liberal stupidity and ideology overriding common sense.
