WASHINGTON, March 30 — The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and its National Religious Leadership Roundtable condemn the handling of the evolving scandal of sexual abuses by priests in the Roman Catholic Church. Pope Benedict XVI is now at the center of the controversy, which has garnered worldwide attention. The pope is being blamed directly for ignoring repeated pleas by senior U.S. clergy to take action against Father Lawrence C. Murphy, a priest who had molested up to 200 boys while working at the St. John's School for the Deaf in Wisconsin from 1950 to 1974. Just today, media reports said the Vatican is launching a legal defense designed to shield the pope from a lawsuit that seeks to have him deposed over claims that the Holy See was negligent in failing to report abuse claims.

... This is a critical time to put out valid information about human sexuality, to be the voice of sanity and clarity and not allow misinformation about sexual orientation to be associated falsely with the child sexual abuse cases and coverups that are overwhelming the Church at the highest level right now.  It is possible that campaigns against Marriage Equality have been a vehicle to convey certain people into political office as well as to maintain coverups in the Church hierarchy regarding decades of child sexual abuse. 
If people do not get valid information now, they will easily absorb wrong information and go into hysteria that could be damaging to LGBT issues on all levels.  It is vital to continue daily monitoring of press releases of Benedict XVI and the hierarchy so that they will not use false information that would be harmful to the LGBT community.  Correct information has to be accessible to the public to answer important questions on demand, to keep rumors and hysteria from taking hold, along with discriminatory remarks feeding antigay belief systems.  We need to prevent people from rushing to the conclusion that LGBT people are responsible for abuse and other kinds of turmoil in society.  We have to keep monitoring the news every day and providing information that is documented, accurate, and scholarly.   by Fr. Marty Kurylowicz - Thalamus Center - March 28, 2010 
2 Samuel 12: 1 – 12 

2 The rich man had a very large number of sheep and cattle, 3 but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb he had bought. 4 "Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him." … 12 You did it in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all Israel.

“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
