Kind of a poor choice of words there. Either that or an amazing pun.

At least they did something about this priest. I hope he repents. But if a person is by nature pervertedly attracted to children, can that ever be changed?

The strange thing about the article is that even though he has been removed from the priesthood they expect him to live a chaste life.

Of all the things priest are putting in kids heads, their c*ck should be the least of your worries... Some mouthwash and a few years therapy will take care of that, but that Jesus stuff will screw a kid up for life...
