Quote# 88887

Homosexuality is a sign of sexual immaturity, as is having sexual activity outside of marriage, and therefore though there is not test for homosexuality, the Church is now weeding out immature men of both persuasions. A lot of homosexuals in the 1960's and 70's wanted to avoid the destructive gay culture and thought that maybe becoming a priest would change that, so they became priests for the wrong reason. And so when the temptations came, they took advantage of easy access to teenage boys and society's blind eye.

Gay =/= pedophile.

Nothing is ever the Church's fault, is it?

"Homosexuality is a sign of sexual immaturity, as is having sexual activity outside of marriage, and therefore though there is not test for homosexuality, the Church is now weeding out immature men of both persuasions."

What is wrong with the standard, common definition of words? Why do you people always have to redefine things with the most bizarre definitions that aren't even remotely close to what the word actually means?

"A lot of homosexuals in the 1960's and 70's wanted to avoid the destructive gay culture and thought that maybe becoming a priest would change that, so they became priests for the wrong reason."

So, becoming one of god's representatives on Earth didn't "cure" them? What good is your god then if he can't even help his most holy servants?

"And so when the temptations came, they took advantage of easy access to teenage boys and society's blind eye."

I see you blaming the priests. I don't see you blaming the Church for essentially ignoring it for many, many years and then, once it all came out, essentially trying to cover it up.

Thinking Allowed

Up until 1973, homosexuality was considered as a mental illness. No wonder they wanted to "avoid the destructive gay culture".

Or maybe the reason you hear about so many Christians raping people (especially children) is because Christians enjoy abusing their power over people, just like they have ever since its inception. Why do you think they fight so hard to keep the statute of limitations (or even lowering it) in place regarding child molestation, on top of threatening their victims into silence? You don't want to hear that though, do you, because that means you lot are the vilest scum of the earth. Well, the truth hurts!

Sorry, Thomas, but you're full of shit. Homosexuals are not the same as pedophiles. As for the child assaults, girls were victims as well.

"they took advantage of easy access to teenage boys and society's blind eye"

Remove the plank from your own blind eye, and maybe you can see clearly enough to remove the speck from society s blind eye. Although child molesting priests have been a running gag in society for decades, so maybe its eye was not so blind after all.

Or, it could be that the church requires its priests to refrain from every sort of sexual pleasure whatsoever. Perhaps if the church would allow priests to get married and have normal sex lives, they wouldn't have all this problem with pedophiles among their clergy.

Not even wrong. Priests were raping children long before 1960. The priesthood demands sexual deviance i.e. men who deny their innate nature as sexual beings.

They've been doing it in people's blind eyes?

I'm wondering about his conflation of homosexuality with immaturity. I guess old Tom is confessing he had a few circle-jerks when he was a teen.

More seriously, his proposal that these were 'immature' people is profoundly deceptive. Catholics of both genders and all sexual preferences were raised in sexual ignorance, and as a result could fairly be described as 'immature'.
Most young Catholics were brought up with Catholicism's choice of 'marriage or the Church'. Many young gays therefore did enter the Catholic Church's priesthood and convents. My compassion goes out to them.
Rather than trying to avoid gay culture, most such individuals had no idea it even existed.
As has already been said, gay does not equal pedophile.

So blame us when your guys fuck up. Yeah that makes sense.

And you're an expert on what homosexuality really is because? That's right, you're not. Also, homosexual =/= pedophile and the pedophile priests probably would have molested little girls to if given the opportunity (in fact I believe some might have).

"the Church is now weeding out immature men of both persuasions."

But what about the pedophile ones?

I'm going to weed my garden. Let me pull out the weeds over by the tomatoes over here. They're hurting the tomato plants. Instead, I'll relocate and plant them over by the squash...

Citation nee- fuck it.

I think the celibacy is a big part of it, too. If you have to live without a sex partner you tend to become dirty-minded, and I should know.

Once upon a time, it was fairly common for gay men to become priests because it stopped people from asking questions about why they weren't dating women or getting married.

And there have been plenty of girls raped by priests, as well.

The Catholic Church isn't "weeding out" pedophiliac priests, they shuffle them around in an effort to stop the fuss and have done for over four decades now.

Stop Lying For Catholicism; it demeans the Church as a whole, including those good people that manage to stay good and stay Catholic.

And also...This "Pedo-Gay" chestnut is getting really moldy-oldie. Stop it, please.

Has nothing to do at all with being gay. The reason why you hear about some of those priests raping kids on the news is because they have a bunch of other issues. You can be gay and NOT be so fucked up in the head that you are willing to attack children. Homosexuality does not equal Pedophilia. They are both very different things.

90% of peadophiles target male children. it is not a gay thing. a paedophile could not even be considered gay or straight. they are not sexually attraceted to the gender of the child, they are sexually attracted to the innocence of the child. it is purely about power and control.

paedophiles become priests (not the fault of the church [the COVERUPS, however are.]) because a priest is put in a position of power and authority over their targets. it is the same reason why some become schoolteachers, and some become team coaches. if a teacher lives by himself and has no girlfreind or boyfreind you should be much more worried than if a teacher is flamboyantly gay and frequents the local gay bars.
