    This is why priests should be allowed to marry, They used to be able too a long time ago. Now the priesthood is riddled with pedos and gays, It`s no wonder church attendance is down.

    Big News in Italy?
    Sir, you are wrong. This is no big news, not in Italy. Italian TV News reports don`t talk about this, and only one magazine published this story. The rest is silence.
    The Big News are just for you who look Italy from the outside. Italy can`t look at herself, all media are horribly SHOPPED.

    The only scandal I see is that the Catholic Church condemns consensual sex between adult men while it protects priests who rape children from prosecution and enables them to continue their crimes in one parish after another.

    @CrakrJak nice one casually lumping paedophiles and gay people together as if the two are somehow comparable. arse. the reasons for a decrease in church attendance are numerous and complex, so don`t be so childish.

    I kinda have to agree with bored I am, I know what the Catholic Church thinks about all this. But he isn`t breaking any laws, he is having fun and as long as he still believes in his God big deal, maybe if they let priests let loose like this more often there would be less child molestation

    For everyone who asks what is wrong with a homosexual priest, I will just have to point out that priests take a vow of celebacy.

    I think it`s hard for a person to be celebate while they are having gay sex.

    @jdee89 I`m sorry, WHO exactly is molesting all those BOYS? Is it hetersosexuals? Ummm... nope! Guess again!
    But yes I agree that the decline in chuch attendance isn`t really related to this one issue.

    @bored-am-i: No, gotta disagree here. This man took a vow to NOT do what he is doing. Period! If he can`t keep his word on this issue, why should he be trusted for anything else?
    Let him be like Martin Luther (or 100 others) and form his own branch of worship. He is not and cannot be called a "Catholic" and thus should be booted from the Church. It`s a no-brainer, and I`m not even religious!

    @bored-i-am - I agree. I`m a Catholic and I`d be more comfortable with a church that accepted sexuality of the individual. The people I know who are still active in the church agree. The "rules" that make this sort of activity "wrong" were made up by old men who were probably doing similar things to each other.

    Um, pedophiles molest children.
    Some pedophiles are heterosexual. Not all heterosexuals are pedophiles.
    Some pedophiles are homosexual. Not all homosexuals are pedophiles.
    What a stupid thing to say! Honestly!

    @Aerophyre - oh, it`s real - you can Google on the scandal and find several news outlets talking about it (it was a sting operation done by one of the Italian magazines).

    @5Cats (and of course as usual, CrakrJak) - Do a bit of research before posting a comment and revealing your limited intelligence and narrow viewpoints. The vow of celibacy taken is for acts of a sexual nature the way the Church recognizes "normal" sex - i.e. with a woman. It is because of this point that many priests turned to homosexuality, as it was the "loophole" in the vow, kind of like being in prison.

    jdee89: Psychologist Eugene Abel, Research found that homosexuals "sexually molest young boys with an incidence that is occurring from five times greater than the molestation of girls."

    Abel also found that non-incarcerated "child molesters admitted from 23.4 to 281.7 acts per offender … whose targets were males."

    There are hetero child molesters, But gay child molesters commit more molestations each. Thus, They are more prolific and dangerous.

    @DfWBrysco, "The Church" is a organized religion that believes in the laws of their God over any laws that man has created. They also believe that God is all knowing and all powerful. If someone in the Church is taking a vow of celibacy, it is to God. God gives no loopholes. Religion, and in particular, the laws of the God that they (catholics in this instance), have no red tape. There is no loophole because religion is not about some corrupt politicians, or the inadequacies of any human justice system. The fact that you think that there could be a loophole in a vow that a religious man makes to his God shows your limited intelligence, and is a very good example of your narrow viewpoints.

    Also, Brysco, if this was simply about a religious man trying to escape the confines of the vow he made to God, then why would he turn around and do something that the bible condemns anyhow, which would be partaking in homosexual acts. But I guess you didn`t think about that.

    From reading the posts it seems we`re getting bogged down in the priest/pedophile thing. Keep in mind, pedophiles molesting boys are 98% heterosexuals. So don`t confuse two seperate issues.

    Ha! That is so very untrue! Also, if it`s a man and a boy, which is most common, it`s a homosexual act. It is sick that these things are happening all over the catholic church.

    @aseirinn

    As a Catholic, I know you`re speaking from ignorance. The church doesn`t frown on being gay, it frowns on premarital sex. Period. Whether heteroSEXual or homoSEXual. Is the church hierarchy perfect? No, it`s comprised of mortal men who sin. Will the church survive past the mistakes of men? You bet your ass it will.

    Also, pedophilia is not only in the Catholic church... I was raised Assemblies of God and had a youth pastor and a school janitor both found to be sexually assaulting young boys.

    It makes the news more with the Catholic church strictly because of how large the church body is.

    The only thing priests need is wives and some pre-marital sex... to me it just looks like the catholic church is a big organisation of sex freaks... it`s not like they don`t know about the pedophilia problems etc... they just like it, that`s probably why guys wanna become priests in the first place... :-p

    It also makes the news because the authoroties within the Catholic Church actively protect and enable child molesters.

    Homosexuals account for less than 10% of our population based on current surveys.

    Dr. Stephen Rubin of Whitman College conducted a ten-state study of sex abuse cases involving school teachers. 32 percent of those child molestation cases involved homosexuals. Nearly a third of these cases come from less than 10% of the population.

    In a sample of 153 homosexual molesters, they confessed to a total of 22,981 molestations. This is equivalent to 150 children per molester.
    heterosexual molesters averaged 19.8 victims per molester.

    madest: I didn`t choose the subject of the study, nor pay for it. So you can`t blame me for it`s limitations and I certainly don`t have the means to `manipulate` any researchers work.

    However, You chose a study from 1978, 32 years out of date ?

    Once again you can`t refute so you revert to insults instead, What a shock.

    Just to be clear, I feel that WBC calling itself a `Baptist` church (It actually does NOT belong to any Baptist affiliation) is a great insult to the regular Baptist churches, And I do NOT share their hatred or vitriol.

    I wonder what the response would be If I suggested you join in a gay pride parade wearing nothing but leather chaps and an officers cap, Hmmm.

    I`m stating the fact that homosexual pedophiles are more prolific and thus more dangerous. I have NEVER denied that there are hetero pedos.

    And yes the age of that study is relevant, In 1978 there was still a large stigma against being gay and I`m certain many of those asked in that 32 year old study did not `come out` to those researchers. You`re trying to say there are `no gay pedophiles` and that sir is a blatant lie.
