It is not clear to me whether the charges against him are of paedophilia or sexual harassment (i.e. were the accusers ADULT priests at the time?) The latter appears to be the case since his 'vehement anti-gay' stance is relevant to the duscussion.

Either way, yet another christian hypocrite is heard from, this time from one who could become the mother of all hypocrites. Whether he has a predilection for ostentatious Prada loafers is not disclosed, but lavish dresses and headgear come with the job.

An enormous data base was developed on the American priest abuse scandal. It was over 80% HOMOSEXUAL in nature, with very little pedophilia. You don't seem to know the difference. Pedophilia involved children before the age of puberty.

In the US, craking down on homosexual priests has nearly elminated new complaints. It's nuts that the Boy Scouts would even consider putting homosexuals in roles of authority over young people.

It's also worth noting that there were accusations against only about 3 percent of American priests, which is about the same as the esitmated rate of homosexuality among the general population.

There is a step you are leaving out and that is pederasty. That's those who are attracted to illegal, not legally adult, but post pubescent youth, it's still rape especially when there is a great difference of power as there is with priests and youth. I believe that priests are attracted of youths of that age because essentially sexually that they are forever in the state of being mentally have the sexuality of a teenager because of their celibacy vow. They rape because a cross between their shame and their power trip as a priest.

Homosexuality is about consenting individuals, not about rape and that's where your analogy fails.

David dear, once again you have managed to forget that enormous data base found that while the abuse was "homosexual in nature", it was largely committed by men who identified as heterosexual and if they had a sexual history with adults, it backed them up on their claim. The review commissioned by the USCCB actually found that very little of the abuse was committed by men who identified as homosexual or who had a sexual history limited to other adult males. The reason that the abuse was so often "homosexual in nature" was simply a matter of the availability of boys within the Church. You worry about homosexuals in charge of young people when its far too frequently a heterosexual who for whatever sick reason will sexually abuse boys. But you really don't care about any truth but your own, do you? If you can believe in a pretty White Boy, blue-eyed Jesus with fabulous blond highlights, you can believe almost anything.

I think it was the several billion dollars in civil judgments that did that...after decades of the RCC doing nothing about the sexual abuses of power.

Lot of sects and religions allow openly gay and lesbian clergy, and married clergy - nothing comparable to the decades long scandal and RCC legal dept. directed coverup.

It is about sexual ill health and repression, not about openly gay and lesbian authority figures.

By the way, given the rate at which str8 men violently rape women, by your logic, we should never allow any str8 men supervise female children in any organization.

You mentally ill freak.

These charges are beyond highlareeous if they're true, and equally highlareeous if they're simply made up as some kind of RCC hierarchy intrigue to get back at this Cardinal for...whatever position he might have taken on ecclesiastical matters. Or for whatever petty reason, who knows?

Did you hear the one about how David dressed up as Captain America, got plastered in a Chicago Mexican restaurant, stuck a burrito down his pants and accosted another customer? The customer broke his nose. Now he is accosting people with his horrible views of Christianity. That's why he is known as the Burrito Boy.

Heard the 911 call that goes with that story and saw video of him at a police station on World's Dumbest..., He and his friends were out bar hopping dressed as superheroes, he got busted for walking up to women and grabbing their crotch as his way of saying hello. Now that I think about it, couldn't possibly be David, at least not THAT time. I remember them saying Captain America was out with other costumed friends, when David is out with his friends, no one else can see them. Would it surprise me that David, somehow squeezed in to an ill fitting spandex super hero costume, drunk driving his psyche, has sexually accosted members of the opposite sex in a seriously pathetic effort to prove his heterosexuality? Not in the slightest, it just wasn't him that time.

He has to take down the butt-uglier photo of himself in a wife beater in front of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco first. WHY does he insist on showing us how he flaunts himself in that gay friendly city?

He thinks gayness will rub off I guess. No matter what he does, the dude is a gay as a three-legged duck.
