Thanks for revealing the truth of this writer's background. The gay lobby is KNOWN for actively trying to subvert the Catholic Church and its moral teachings on homosexual acts. They are obviously trying to smear this great spiritual leader. The bishops definitely stabbed themselves in the foot with their handling of this scandal, but it's now being used as an "excuse" to bring down the Church (like they needed another). But as Scripture and Sean Hannity likes to say, let your heart not be troubled, for as the Gospel of Matthew says (16:18), "the gates of hell will not prevail against it (the Church." It's time to fight back against these sodomite insurgents and their active accomplists "the Lavender Mafia."

So you get the media coming and going.
If the media reports about a priest who blames the media for the scope of the abuse crisis, then the media is trying to smear him?
There's lots of smoke here that Groeschel was at the heart of returning some of these abusers back to the active ministry. There's also at least one victim who said he tried to intimidate him into keeping quiet.
Those are the very things that brought down Cardinal Law. Law, in fact, relied on psychologists like Groeschel to tell them what to do with these abusers.
There is a huge lawsuit in Boston against the so-called "experts" who advised Law about abusive priests. I suspect Groeschel will get dragged into some of these lawsuits when they work their way around to the Paterson, NJ, diocese.
Stop blaming the media. Protestant churches have these same kinds of problems, but they are much quicker on the trigger to fire abusive ministers than the Catholic Church has been.
