Following weeks of pressure for Pope Francis to respond to accusations that he played a role in the cover-up of a Catholic Church pedophile ring, the pontiff finally spoke up on the scandal by referring to the victims of abuse as a "pack of wild dogs."
During Mass at the Vaticans Sanctae Marthae guesthouse, the Pope raised the issue by likening the latest child abuse scandal to a biblical story where Jesus is driven out of town by a pack of wild dogs.

I’m becoming convinced that the Pope is gay. It explains about everything. Occam’s razor.
Why is this spoken of as “child abuse” in general terms, but seldom mentioned that homosexual men are the predstors?
He really considers victims to he a pack of wild animals? Isn’t that a better description of the priests who prey on boys and young men?
Oh come on! Poppie can’t be that stupid.
It does make one wonder about his personal, private life.
I agree on the “pope is gay” idea. Why is he protecting predator priests? The office is NOT sacred, any more than those of protestant pastors and staff.
We have to reclaim the language. Notgay but same sex attracted. Not pedophilia but pediastry.
If this is true, it is one of the most gone deaf things he could possibly say.
So he is comparing himself to Jesus. And, he is comparing the victims to rabid animals.
....likening the latest child abuse scandal to a biblical story where Jesus is driven out of town by a pack of wild dogs.
Where is that story in the Bible? Must be in one of the Catholic apocryphal books.
And teenage boys and young men are the prey.
And what biblical story would that be?
Jesus was never driven out of town by a pack of wild dogs. Did this get mistranslated?
In all fairness I believe the Pope was referring to those who are demanding he answer to claims that he knew about McCarrick and not the victims of abuse themselves.
How did a College of Cardinals largely appointed by John Paul II and Benedict XVI elect this man Pope? This non-Catholic is genuinely baffled.

So how does that make it any better?
A cleansing of the Vatican, a sand blasting of the stoney facad, is required.
Priestly queers are worse than those that sold the admission to heaven and prompted the first protestant reformation
