William Donohue is the face of the Catholic League. For years he's been saying something very offensive. His organization continued the tradition on Valentines Day. On a day for love, the Catholic League spread their vile hate instead. A religion that prides itself on forgiveness and unconditional love has an American face that judges homosexuality as deviant, yet this church based on love does nothing to stop the Catholic League from equating pedophilia with homosexuality
David Letterman recently was mocking the Pope saying that he was leaving his post due to neck problems from constantly looking away from the abuse. Of course this didn't sit well with the Catholic League so they had to respond to the comedian, because that's what serious organizations do. In the bit Letterman referred to the priests as "creeps". The Catholic League has this to say in response to calling abusive priests creeps: Link
(Though he didn’t cite gays by name, we all know who he meant.) In fairness, just because most molesting priests have been homosexuals, doesn’t mean that most gay priests are molesters. Moreover, when the homosexual scandal was going on (mid-60s to mid-80s), therapy and rehabilitation were sold by the liberal elite as the preferred means of redress.
The fact is that we all know that sexual abuse is based on power. We also know that priests spend more time with boys than girls. We also know that boys would be less inclined to report sexual abuse or be believed, especially at the times that many of these abuses occurred. So who do these priests have power over? It's no different in the Boy Scouts. Yet here is the PR face of the Catholic Church in the US claiming that homosexuality is the cause of priest abuses in the US and through out the Church. How in the world are they going to address the problem if they don't even understand it? How could the not be judgmental and loving if they really think that homosexuality leads to raping children? It's absurd. I'm straight so little girls are now a sexual object for me? Shouldn't we see similar numbers of incidents between priests and girls or at least a portion of the abuses being caused by the "straight" priests? We don't because it's a crime of power and opportunity.
The Catholic League is a defacto arm of the church itself. They are listed on the Official Catholic Directory. There is a degree of separation, but it's slight. The reality is that this view does not seem to be different from that of the official actions of the church legally and otherwise. The denial of reality. The separation of themselves from the actions of the few, which are in the hundreds if not the 1000;s all around the world. Catholics, you know homosexual people. Is there anything about a homosexual man that tells you that they are after your child? Maybe it's time you read the Bible again Mr. Donohue. If you could simply point out the place where it authorizes you to judge others, I would appreciate you pointing it out. If you find it, I may have to point to your gluttony, or blindness and balding as signs of the curse of Aaron the Priest and question your place as God's messenger.
"Whosoever ... hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken; No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God. ... Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries." -- Leviticus 21:17-23
