You are right. There are a lot of gay priest molesting little boys. They might as well admit it.

Did the priest ride his skateboard to the little boy's house and how did he get inside?

What are you saying? Are you saying the boys "asked for it"? Are you trying to claim that the boys wanted to have gay sex with old gay priest?

Surely no one believes that!

Sweetie, it's your own fault that you can't fake having a clue as to what the Catholic Church has learned about its scandal. It's problems weren't with gay priests, but straight ones. They took on a lot of heterosexuals with problems in order to keep out the gays, the abuse was the inevitable result.

Why is the Church trying to shelter assets to avoid big payouts?

Most folk find out that they are supposed to be Catholic years before they figure out that they are gay. The Catholic Church gives you two choices, marriage or celibacy, all else, sin. It was either join the Church or live by yourself the rest of your life. This is why the Church also drew in a slew of dysfunctional heterosexuals that amused themselves by abusing boys.

It's time for the Catholic Church to recognize that Jesus was gay, allow the priests to marry (same or opposite-sex), and celebrate their sexuality with a yearly orgy (must be 21 or older to attend).

That would solve all their problems.

Because it is a good place to hide out. For example, in England, about 40% of the young men who enter Catholic seminaries are admitted homosexuals.

No wonder there is such a problem with the priests raping the children.

Sexual abuse of our children reported in 189 out of 195 dioceses in america. Thats a lot of bishops and priests who knew what was going on and did and said nothing! It was always the victims who called 9-1-1.....

Known sexual abuse by catholic clergy in every country where the catholic church resides.

and the church teaches they are the advocates of MORALITY and JUSTICE. OMG!!

UNBELIEVABLE!

Are they? Yes.

Is this news? No. Has been happening for at least the last 1,000 years, off and on.

It it is the one place they do not have to 'fake it str8.'

Like str8 proper thy worhrip their Creator. Thr ptoblrm id pedophilia not adult to adult same sex attraction. Inmuch of the world there are 'child brides' but are most str8 men pedophiles?

Most gay men are not pedophiles but like anyone, pedophiles 'go where the goods are' an that are in places where children are. Those grown men that are 'out' with rainbow flags and search on sites for muscle men, big penises and hairy chests generally are not child lovers. Smart pedophiles often marry women so they can get next to kids in a family setting, church, schools etc but who is going to find child at a gay leather bar?

This is nothing but a PR campaign BY THE CHURCH to distract people from the financial shenanigans the church is facing in courts of law around the world.

Money Laundering charges by the Italian Govt. against the Vatican Bank!

Now we learn the the HEAD of The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Bishop Timothy Dolan himself, is accused of trying to hide church assets from child rape victims and their families!

The Church hiding assets from it's own followers?

WTF?

Do not think it is just the RCC but look at the sex abuse of females in the Protestant and Jewish congregations. In Islam, one can marry a child and follow the example of Muhammad, who some say married a 6 year old girl and took her virginity s at 91 The RCC pales in comparison. TheRRc I think wanted to let those priests 'reform' themselves and remove the temptation. Instead money hungry lawyers saw a chance to go after the deep pockets of the RCC and fine focus on them when this is much more widespread, Watch Chris Hansens'To Catch a Predator"
