Who cares whether his became a paedophile in order to come out of hte closet as gay...which makes no stinking sense to begin with, because those are two seperate neuroses.

Actually pedophilia means being sexually attracted to pre-pubescent children. Usually the media calls pederasty "pedophilia" because it distances it from the gay agenda. Actually a great many homosexuals are pederasts - seducing or molesting teenage boys, often initiating them into the "gay life". The whole "gay priest" thing had very little to do with actual pedophilia, and everything to do with homosexuals in the priesthood, doing what many homosexuals do - going after adolescent boys.

I think ... I'm going ... to vomit.

After a long monologue on sex and the Catholic church, McBride seemed ready to wrap up the discussion. "Now we have to continue these conversations, and you'll have to come up to Chautauqua and we could -- "

It's curious that they leave this out. I'd love to hear what an old lavendar priest has to say about sex and the Catholic Church. Could have been very eye-opening.

Doesn't matter. It is time fot the Catholic Church to allow married (heterosexual) priests.

Thanks for the advice.

In any case, I am not even a Christian, so I shouldn't really worry about the decline of this Church.

Oh, in that case, I think it's time for you to quit your job and tour the US with a traveling circus.

are we supposed to take the word and actions of a gay police officer just like that?...well, I don't.....

as odorous as this so-called "priest" is, I have little respect for gay cops who visit gay bars and some how are "offended" and run entrapments....

what strikes me about the gay "community" ( another word ruined by the homosexual lobby) is the fact that it really, really, really is all about sex and more sex, indiscriminately...

"No matter what the shrinks tell you all gay men are latent pedophiles."

what is "pedophilia" anyway?....the sexual attraction to little children or is it the attraction to pubescent youngsters?

I believe that most of the priest problems are actually largely from homsexual men, not men that go after small children,or girls, although that is the case in a small number of cases....

A gay activist once stated to me that "lookism" is far worse in the homosexual community than the hetero community.....

the younger, the better, the fresher the better , and the firmer the better.....

so it is easy for me to see homosexual men becoming priests just to be close to young prey....

but the "agenda" is to call them all pedophiles and completely ignore that these are homosexual predators......

Aren't you a friendly fella?

I have trouble suffering fools gladly, I admit.

I join the circus only if you become an alter boy.

You missed my point. It was: I have as much right to tell you what to do with your career as you do to tell the Catholic Church to institute married clergy.

He was enforcing the law. He did nothing wrong. If a hetero cop was investigating a bunch of hetero child molesters, would it be inappropriate to infiltrate their group at a well-known hangout or club that they frequented?

No different here. And these boys who work as hustlers often get murdered or a fatal illness from the trade. So there is a legitimate public health concern just like there is for all teenage prostitution.

=== Unbeknownst to McBride, Burkhart was wearing a wire. Not only would it play a major role in the case; it would also shed light on the secret life of a gay priest.


A pity he doesn't wear it all the time so that we might understand the secret life of a gay cop who -- clearly -- himself leads a double life of double standards unless, of course, he's so clueless as to believe gay talk about boys is roughly akin to loser heteros lusting after the likes of Britney Spears.

No doubt the heteros come closer all the time to the homosexual sexual model and aesthetic ... particularly Useful Idiot men whose double standard where lesbianism and anal sex is concerned is a critical bit of conditioned cognitive dissonance.

But any practicing homosexual knows better than to think there's no substantive difference between the Lifestyle where homosexuals and faux-homo heteros are concerned.
