Surprise! Homosexuality is NOT a factor in Abusive Priests

Surprise, homosexuality didn't cause abusive priests! A study due out next year from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice has found no evidence that homosexuality is a factor causing priests to sexually abuse children. Duh! I think we all knew that!

My favorite part of this whole story is the study was paid for ($2 million dollars!) and commissioned by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops! Hmm, $2 million dollars, I wonder how many homeless people we could have fed, housed, and clothed with that?

The gay community deserves an apology from USCCB for the hateful and hurtful things they said about gays and gay priests during and after the church sex abuse crisis. I'd also like to see them remove this barrier and allow gay men who wish to become priests do so.

Dignity USA, the nations largest LGBT Catholic organization has also chimed in. Read more.
