Anne Barrett Doyle of Bishop-Accountability.org called the number of undisclosed priests “staggering.” She accused O’Malley of purposely delaying to protect church officials responsible for monitoring the priests. And also, if past actions by Bishops are anything to go by, so the accused can be sent on safely to another parish in Africa somewhere. The church has said compiling the list is a complex task. It cited concerns about due process for accused priests. What I would like to know is: what about the children?
Many gay priests have been exposed by Panorama magazine frequenting gay clubs and actually having sex with gay partners. Being gay is not the issue here. It is the hypocrisy of supposed men of God, claiming they are celibate. If there is so much opportunity around for gay sex, one has to wonder why these men have joined the priesthood. It may be that the Catholic religion allows them to believe that if they are not having sex with women, then they are not having sex. Perhaps it is as simple or as psychologically complex as that.
Panorama magazine is owned by Catholic Prime Minister and media baron, Silvio Berlusconi. Its reporters have film of priests attending gay clubs and having gay sex. One of the priests is later filmed saying Mass! http://italia.panorama.it/Le-notti-brave-dei-preti-gay – can be translated into English via Google
