Those two there are too far gone to take any advice, and while they're Conscious, they seem to have no Conscience. It's like the old saying you can lead a horse to water, and they have been led.
I guess that we're just going to have to look at where they were and where they are heading and advise them properly.

As for your flawed rationale that only young men were available to RC priests for sex as they were the only sex eligible for altar service in the 60s and 70s: Consider the case of the (late) Rev. James R. Porter who abused 100 boys and girls throughout the Boston Archdiocese long before altar servers became co-ed.

In any event, the RC church is not a cloister or a prison where the only sexual relations available are same sex relations. Consider the latest case in Darien, CT., where the Rev. Michael Jude Fay stands accused of raiding his church's treasury to support a lavish gay lifestyle with an adult male partner in NYC; neither money or distance posed a problem for this pastor's sexual preference.

I hope that this helps resolve this for you. The Diocese of Bridgeport presented accurate information. In fact, when all victims and all offenders are considered, the most frequent victim is a girl under the age of 14 and the perpetrator is a male-either a member of her biological family or someone she and her family know and trust.

If you have further questions about this matter, please feel free to ask. God bless, Sharon Doty, Consultant to the VIRTUS Program

How many millions did the Vatican pay to get these results? All this research means NOTHING!!! It is so easy to manipulate data, they could create any result they wanted.

Harry,

Not nearly as many millions as the RCC is now having to pay out and is simply no longer receiving as a result of the hidden exploitation of children that had been allowed to become entrenched in their "celibate" culture.

And the result the RCC so desperately wanted was that their pedo priests weren't gay; I believe the church paid $1 million over 10 years to get it.
