I’m not taken in by anyone. I know the name of the game. BUT I also know if the Pope defrocked ALL practicing homosexuals and pedophiles in the clergy there is NO way the media would ignore it- nor could they spin it. THAT is what needs to be done. Anything short of that is allowing evil to masquerade as clergy-and NO ‘priest’ who breaks his vows is a legitimate priest. If a priest is found to have a girlfriend/heterosexual relationship he is drummed out pretty quickly-but priests sodomizing other priests/adult men/boys are to be understood and tolerated. Hell no.

The longer this goes on, and the worse that it gets, only confirms my belief that the Vatican is crawling with homosexuals and pedophiles-yes right up to the College of Cardinals; and they will see the Church destroyed before they leave it.

Dear friend ... I perfectly understand your frustration. Let's for just one minute consider the two items you are suggesting.

1. "defrock all practicing homosexuals" - if you watched the closing mass at WYD, you would have counted 7,000 priests! If 7,000 priests were present at WYD, how many ordained catholic priests are there in the world? How does one determine if a priest has homosexual tendencies and has acted on them? How would this process work? How long would it take to compile that number? Who would make those decisions?

2. "no way the media would ignore it" - you're absolutely right. In a society that has legalized gay marriage, the media would be all over it. They would quickly single out those gay priests who practice celibacy but were defrocked and hold them up for all the world to judge the Catholic Church. These men would son be turned into "victims".

John 15:18 - “If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first."
