1. I’m old. Old is good. And as for lying with youth, that was only a problem before the last 2 popes acted firmly to get gays, who were causing over 80% of the problem, out of the seminaries.

  2. You know what, Anonymous, fuck you!

    Societies oppression of gays and lesbians sent many scared and confused individuals into seminary or holy orders where their lack of interest in heterosexuality could remain concealed. Unfortunately for many of these men they discovered that their desires didn’t disappear and their bound up, stifled sexuality caused them to act out on innocent youth (the new Holy Innocents) in abhorrent ways.

    The problem, you dried up old shrew, is the Roman insistence on an unnatural celibacy and denial of sexuality. As for getting the gays out of the seminary, now that we live in a more open and accepting world, there is much less reason to hide there. So how is enrollment these days?

    Finally, interesting study that in which it revealed the most gay friendly body of Christians are lay Catholics. It would seem you and your sorry ass kind are going the way of the dinosaurs. No wonder Rome is so frantic.

  3. Anon, what you’re doing now is lying TO youth (and all the rest of us).

    You want a gay Catholic priest? That would be holy Mychal Judge, a martyr of 9-11.

    Those pedophile priests, unlike Judge, did NOT openly identify as gay at the time they were diddling altar boys.

    Have you listened to/looked at any of those “Hammer of Orthodoxy”/”John Paul Generation” priests? (They’re all over EWTN) The arrogance of power? The certitude of their moral superiority? RECIPE for abuse. I so *guarantee* you they are diddling boys as much if not MORE than than prior cohorts did. Lord have mercy!

  4. The Catholic church has, in fact, made several teenagers and men in their early 20s popes; unfortunately, they were all either incompetent, very greedy, didn’t help the poor or just were clueless. One of them wandered the streets of Rome looking for women to rape and assaulting those who tried to stop him.

  5. unfortunately, they were all either incompetent, very greedy, didn’t help the poor or just were clueless

    Yes, but most popes, whatever their age, have been guilty of at least one of those, quite often all of them. As for the rapist, that sort of thing is going to happen when you start ordaining straight men instead of the gay guys you normally go for.

  6. The way I figure it, and of course I could be wrong… the reason so many of the victims were male was they don’t let females serve as Altar Boys. Pedos take what’s available.

    And I assure you, neither of the last two Queens, I mean Popes, removed the gays from the Roman Seminaries. They would be empty. (Though I’ll admit they are NEARLY empty now.)

  7. Before you call for another pride parade, consider the following:
    Dr. Stephen Rubin of Whitman College conducted a ten-state study of sex abuse cases involving school teachers. He studied 199 cases. Of those, 122 male teachers had molested girls, while 14 female teachers had molested boys. He also discovered that 59 homosexual male teachers had molested boys and four female homosexual teachers had molested girls. In other words, 32 percent of those child molestation cases involved homosexuals. Nearly a third of these cases come from only 1-2% of the population.

    Dr. Judith Reisman, in her book, Kinsey, Crimes & Consequences, describes the research done by Dr. Gene Abel. This researcher compared the molestation rates of self-confessed homosexual and heterosexual child molesters. In a sample of 153 homosexual molesters, they confessed to a total of 22,981 molestations. This is equivalent to 150 children per molester. Self-admitted heterosexual molesters admitted to 4,435 molestations. This comes to 19.8 victims per molester. Dr. Abel concluded that homosexuals “sexually molest young boys at an incidence that is occurring from five times greater than the molestation of girls.”

    This high rate of molestations by homosexuals is consistent with other studies conducted during the past several decades. Here are just a few studies that show homosexuals molesting children at epidemic rates:

    The Los Angeles Times conducted a survey in 1985 of 2,628 adults across the U.S. Of those, 27% of the women and 16% of the men had been sexually molested. Seven percent of the girls and 93% of the men had been molested by adults of the same sex. This means that 40% of child molestations were by homosexuals. (Los Angeles Times, August 25-6, 1985)

    In 1984, a Vermont survey of 161 adolescents who were sex offenders found that 35 of them were homosexuals (22%). (Wasserman, J., “Adolescent Sex Offenders—Vermont, 1984” Journal American Medical Association, 1986; 255:181-2)

    In 1991, of the 100 child molesters at the Massachusetts Treatment Center for Sexually Dangerous Persons, a third were heterosexual, a third were bisexual, and a third were homosexual. (Dr. Raymond Knight, “Differential Prevalence of Personality Disorders in Rapists and Child Molesters,” Eastern Psychological Association Conference, New York, April 12, 1991)

    Drs. Freund and Heasman of the Clark Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto reviewed two studies on child molesters and calculated that 34% and 32% of the sex offenders were homosexual. In cases these doctors had handled, 36% of the molesters were homosexuals. (Freund, K. “Pedophilia and Heterosexuality vs. Homosexuality,” Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, 1984; 10:193-200)

    In addition, a homosexual foster care couple is five to six times more likely to molest than its heterosexual counterpart.

    From these studies and many more, it is evident that homosexuals molest children at a far greater rate than do their heterosexual counterparts. While they comprise only 1-2% of the population, they are responsible for upwards of a third or more of all sexual molestations of children.
