Cardinal McCarrick scandal inflames debate over gay priests

There are 12 comments on the Washington Times story from Aug 20, 2018, titled Cardinal McCarrick scandal inflames debate over gay priests. In it, Washington Times reports that:

Allegations that disgraced ex- Cardinal Theodore McCarrick engaged in sex with adult seminarians have inflamed a long-running debate about the presence of gay men in the Roman Catholic priesthood. Some conservatives are calling for a purge of all gay priests, a challenging task given that they are believed to be numerous and few are open about their sexual orientation.

Hey, that's merely workplace sexual harassment. That's a step forwards for that psychosexually disordered institution, imo.

Homosexuals and women and decent str8 males should have "self-purged" or "self-deported" from the rcc a long time ago.

"Some conservatives are calling for a purge of all gay priests"

DUH that's a no-brainer that should have happened a long time ago. Anyone with any common sense knows this.

The rcc has had an official policy of trying to weed out anyone with homosexual tendencies from the hierarchy for decades (some areas like Philly more dramatically,) and that along with the misogyny, authoritarianism, and unhealthy attitudes regarding other sexual matters (masturbation, most hilariously) has left a twisted, secretive institution with abuse of power in sexual contexts and ensuing, systemic coverup like no other institution on the planet.

Meanwhile, lgbt persons, gay men, are everywhere, in all manner of institutions. Nothing quite like the rcc, however. For the rcc it's only about gay men, you see...even though openly gay and closeted homosexual males are everywhere, and the rcc is unique.

But they're not gay men, they're self hating closet cases.

But it's only happened to that extent in the rcc.

But it was the hierarchy covering it up for decades.

In extended families and schools and with violent rape on the streets all the sexual abuse tends to be str8 men perpetrating females.

But the rcc says this is all about "gay men." Classic scapegoating by psychosexually ill, male misogynists who, of all things, wear fancy dresses.

Yeah because in the Catholic Church the only problem of sexual abuse (huge problem) is with gay priests molesting boys. Why should they be concerned with things that aren't a problem in the Church?

They should not be concerned with other things because they cannot fix their own far more serious issues.

Other institutions have closeted, male homosexuals and openly lgbt persons without anything resembling the rcc's abuse of power scandal and subsequent, decades long cover-up by the leadership of the institution.

Sot it's clearly not about gay men. If it were you'd find the same expanse of scandal and cover-up by the leaders in the Episcopal Church, to take one example. You do not.

That's been stated policy for decades, and it helped cause the twisted mess.

What the rcc would really have to do is get rid of all the misogynists and authoritarians, but it wouldn't be the rcc if it did that. It would be about thirty personnel worldwide.(But the parishioners might come back....)

I was enjoying the Bishop Merlot thread so immensely.

BTW, here's who this Bishop Merlot or whatever is. And when this stuff came to light the diocese there responded by whining about a breach in the privacy of communications between the bishops - Bishop Merlot or whatever in this case - and the priests. That's how the rcc reacts to scandals...as we have seen to the tune of billions of dollars in civil damages worldwide.....

"Vicar general Msgr. James Bartylla, in the message to priests, addressed funeral rites for a person in a same-sex union. The communication concerned various topics like whether the deceased or his or her partner was a promoter of the gay lifestyle and whether the deceased gave signs of repentance. "The memo discussed ways to avoid causing scandal and confusion to the faithful, which could lead others into sin or confuse or weaken people regarding Catholic teachings, and reflected existing canon law. One way to avoid scandal would be to avoid giving a partner a prominent role in a church rite or service, the memo said."

A loved one died and those freeeks are concerned about "scandal," and now the _real_ scandal is that those ugly directives came to light? No wonder the vast bulk of the laity ignores rcc hierarchy teachings on sexual mores generally - masturbation, birth control, abortion, divorce, marriage equality, and so on.
