The Guardian must have been ecstatic at this story.

They get to slam both the papists AND closeted gay people all in one go.

The Bishop of Rome merely brought a problem prelate close so he could keep an eye on him.

It should be a new law of the land my friend.If anybody wants to be a religous leader they have to get their nuts cut off.That would solve all the molestation of the alter boys.The priest will bend the alter boy over the alter and say to himself,Dang yabit,I forgot I aint got no balls!!!!!

castration doesn't prevent a man from attaining erections. And an erection isn't necessary for a person to molest a child. Women molest too.

Nice theory. Too bad it's ridiculous.

Wrong approach. The only solution is to thoroughly screen applicants and not allow homosexuals to become priests.

A better solution would be to dismantle the Catholic Church, sell off all its assets, and use the proceeds to do something truly beneficial for humankind.

Ironically, this approach, like all those mentioned by bigots, only exacerbates the problem.

They could use the benny hill approach and tie a bell to each of the priest privates and have a young naked ladd prance across in front of them.If they hear a bell ring that suka's out!!!!

And they do that by ONLY recruiting men who don't need or want sexual relationships with women, or families?

And then they add in the active recruitment of sexually immature and stunted closet cases who are broken enough to really believe that their lack of desire for women must be God's Will, and then find themselves breaking even further under the pressures of their "calling".

Gay folks aren't the problem, it's the last type that wreak the havoc.

That only half works
.
The altar boy can still throw the ball while the priest bends over the altar
.
So the solution to the problem is to prohibit balls in church

Well just because Im hung like a horse has nothing to do with priest molesting kids.Im just sayin all religous folks should be de-balled and de-veined before they become a priest.Its a better idea than turning your head like all the popes have done.Correct?
