All I see here is evasion and deflection in attempt to get people's attention off a claim that pretty clearly false since there is nothing that has been provided to support it.

And this matters to you a great deal, resolve this issue and you're copacetic and satisfied and done with the issue and thread? Or will there be something else you require?

Of course it was someone else that you meant to post that other stuff to.

Is the homosexual/boy fascination angle as prevalent in the smaller Episcopalian denomination it is in the Catholic one?

You are pushing one proposition: That Catholic priests are more likely to be attracted to boys and to molest boys than other social categories of men.

That is false.

You can choose either to look for accurate data, or continue to indulge your appetites.

We have a rule that one with a homosexual tendency cannot be a priest. Period. Do public school teachers, sports coaches or most Protestant places of worship have a comparable policy?

The “shuffling” may or may not have occurred, a few times when the Church was under the worst Protestant influence ever after Vatican II council. We can purge our liberal semi-Protestant scum out. Can you? You don’t even understand what the problem is: you gave us the modern all-is-permitted society. It is now that Protestantism tries to sound conservative; your entire so-called Reformation was an exercise in liberalism. Fix your own house.

Pushing something, appetites? I asked for clarification of your instruction to look at the Episcopalian Priests and homosexuality.

You made a strange post to me, “”If you are hunting for homosexuals, try the Anglicans and Episcopalians.””

I naturally asked you “”is the homosexual/boy fascination angle as prevalent in the smaller Episcopalian denomination as it is in the Catholic one?””

Your answer doesn’t make sense, it just sounds hostile.

How's that working out for you?

Then why doesn't the church kick them out when exposed?

Why is there a homosexual lobby within Catholicism?

Why *Once a priest, always a priest?*

Why does the Catholic church allow sacraments administered by men it says can't be priests to be considered valid?

Tip of the iceberg... The source is a Catholic source. We all know there would never be any attempt the suppress statistics... (do I need a /sarcasm tag?) Plus, we know they would never conceal it.

The apparent default term currently being used for those opposing Rome and its followers is anti-Catholic. I prefer the term "Christian"!

... The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops commissioned the John Jay College of Criminal Justice to conduct a comprehensive study based on surveys completed by the Roman Catholic dioceses in the United States. The product of the study, titled the John Jay Report indicated that some 11,000 allegations had been made against 4,392 priests in the USA. This number constituted approximately 4% of the priests who had served during the period covered by the survey (1950–2002).[28] ...

Seeing as this "problem" goes way back well over a thousand years, I'd say not very.

Well, that seems to have brought this thread to a dead screeching halt.....
