NYT: Pope failed to defrock sex abuse priest - The New York Times- msnbc.com

Heh. Interesting to note, if you're a female teacher that sleeps with a kid, and you're hot, you get probation.

If you're not a hot female teacher, you get years of jail time. Or male.

If you're a gay priest getting it from 200 deaf boys, you write a quick note to the (now) Pope and say, "Look man, I just want to live out the rest of my priesthood in dignity. Oh, yeah, I totally repent and stuff."

BAM! Good to go.

He was a pedophile priest, not a "gay" priest. "Pedophile" does not equal "gay" just because the victims were of the same gender. The majority of pedophiles will molest children of either gender- it depends on their access to children. In the case of priests, their access to boys is much greater than their access to girls. It's the age and innocence of the child that attracts them. {shudder}

But the story of the cover up disgusts me as much as the acts of this predator.

Big problems in Europe with this, too.
The pope said he was sorry to the Irish, not well received.
Now the Germans are up in arms about the pedophiles and the pope's excusing the behavior.

The church needs to lose all of its artwork to pay restitution to these people.

There apparently no limit to the protection offered by this male dominated organization to its deviant membership. Like a Catholic friend of mine once said, "I thought the all did it." Maybe they all do and are just using their religious power over the believers to avoid any repercussions for their pedophilia.

I wonder why civil charges are not pressed by secular authority as molesting childern is a criminal activity. Do priests have immunity from civil Law? Why are the children or their parents suing for physical and mental damage?

No Catholic can defend these scumbags. I certainly don't. To take advantage of a trusted position in society and use it for evil deserves a one-way ticket to hell.

We know you are having issues but must you take it out on a helpless minority group?
