The Catholic Church is currently mired in a global sex scandal that spans all the way from Wisconsin to Brazil toGermany to the very corridors of the Pope's home (and many places in between). Saying that the scandal has reached epic proportions might even be an understatement. The truth is, this scandal is woven inside and out of the Church leadership in ways that continue to shock and awe on a daily basis.
It would be easy to jump on the bandwagon and bash the institutional Church -- after all, this is a church (at least the institutional wing of it) that has continually gone after LGBT people and tried to break apart LGBT families. But Catholic bashing doesn't really solve anything, and certainly doesn't do anything to alleviate the pain and suffering of thousands of people affected by the Church's complete and utter failure of leadership in holding criminal priests accountable for sexual assault.
But one thing most definitely deserves disputing -- the argument made by folks like the Catholic League's Bill Donohue that the sex scandal enveloping the church is a "homosexual problem." That's so far from the truth, it makes Scooter Libby look like Mahatma Gandhi.
Donohue has aggressively pushed the claim that the Church's sex scandal is not the problem of poor church leadership or the fault of rules imposed by the Vatican on clergy, but instead a few gay priests. Donohue went on CNN to argue this. He took an advertisement out in the New York Times to argue this. And he continues to write time and time again about how homosexuality is the root of the Church's evil. Read complete article – byMichael A. Jones

Catholic League's Bill Donohue -
…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6

KIDS ARE BEING HURT!!!
"Someday, maybe, there will exist a well-informed, well-considered, and yet fervent public conviction that the most deadly of all possible sins is the mutilation of a child's spirit." Erik Erikson
Important note: With all due respect to Pope Benedict XVI and the hierarchy, the one and only concern is the safety and future well-being of children.
