Bill Donohue: End The Gay Cover-Up

Responding to criticism over his recent declaration that the Catholic Church "doesn't have a pedophile problem, it has a gay problem," Catholic League president Bill Donohue digs deeper.
"AP stories say the reason why there were so many male victims is because the priests did not have access to girls as altar servers. Nonsense. There have been girl altar servers in some U.S. dioceses since 1983, and almost everywhere since 1994. The statistics actually show that the more priests have access to girls, the less likely it is for girls to be abused. Here's the tally. As reported in 2004, between 1950 and 2002, 81 percent of the victims were male; in 2005, it stayed the same; in 2006, it dropped to 80 percent; in 2007, it climbed to 82 percent; in 2008, it jumped to 84 percent; and in 2009, it stayed at 84 percent. In other words, even though priests have less access to males, homosexual priests are molesting them at a higher rate. It's time to end the gay cover-up once and for all."
Donahue ridicules a researcher's logic-based opinion that "participation in homosexual acts is not the same as sexual identity as a gay man." Donahue: "So if two men sodomize each other, no one really knows if this qualifies as gay sex. Now I must admit that when I was studying for my doctorate in sociology at NYU, they never taught me such logic."
