I don't think this pope is playing with a full deck. Being gay does NOT make a person a pedophile.

Good idea, blame the gay priests for raping the young boys. They are certainly culpable. That will fix the problem, no doubt.
Hmmm, but what about the GIRLS who were raped? Blame the gays there too? Doesn't seem to work. Don't they CARE about what happens to females? Oh, sorry, I forgot I was talking about CATHOLICS there for a second.
If only these twisted, anti-sex loons would learn the difference between CONSENSUAL sex between ADULTS, and sex with a CHILD of ANY gender. Maybe if people would learn to stop trusting CELIBATE individuals for information on sex AT ALL, this could all stop happening COMPLETELY.
When it coms to human sexuality, there's nothing to learn from people who condemn and abstain from ALL sex. These people are deliberately leading THEMSELVES down a path of sexual ignorance, and they have nothing to offer regular human beings.
How about we spend a few minutes focusing NOT on the SEX that happened (although that's bad), but on the priests and bishops who ACTIVELY COVERED IT UP, and sought to HIDE these crimes from the authorities? THOSE are the freaks who need to be blamed. Crimes will always happen, but pretending that they DIDN'T happen, and putting those SAME offenders into NEW situations to commit AGAIN is a worse crime altogether. And they want to blame someone else.
Sorry, gentlemen, but if you wanted to call ANY of this a "crime", then you would have REPORTED it from day one.
Where has the Catholic church suggested that gays have raped girls as priests?

When has the Catholic church suggested that priests who have molested/raped girls were gay rather than heterosexual?

The New Testament scriptures do not even suggest that Pastors or elders are to be unmarried rather than married. Paul told Timothy that Pastors and elders were to be married to one woman. No where in the New Testament does scripture say that Pastors/elders/or deacons are to be called Priests! The New Testament does say that all Christians are priests with the context being that fundamentally any Christian has full access to God through their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ alone as their only mediator between them and God.

It's essential when raping little boys though Sherlayne.

I don't know that they have. I didn't say that they did, I only wonder why they feel the need to focus on the "gay" priests and on the same-sex rape. It seems as if they disregard the opposite-sex rape as less important, and not worthy of focus. Though, this is hardly surprising. Most Abrahamic sects devalue females.

It seems to me that the gender orientation of the rape is not important at all. The real issue is that rape is HAPPENING, and that it is being covered up by higher church authorities. To point blame at "the gays" seems to be the church's way of shifting blame from itself. They drum up public reaction against gay people, because it's easy, resulting in a callous (and predictably patriarchal) disregard for girls who were raped. Because inciting hatred against JUST MEN wouldn't be good for business.

"Larry" the evolution of such things are the result of the Saulian heresies.

For example, in the gospel account Yeshua is recorded as saying " ... call no one 'father'... ", while Saul says, " ... it is right that you call me 'father'... ". This is not an isolated incident.

Saulianity, and it's hoary child, "christendom" are heretical.
