Bill Donohue: Accused Catholic Priests Aren't Pedophiles, They Are Homosexuals

"An editorial in today’s New York Times cites the Vatican’s disciplinary action against its former ambassador to the Dominican Republic, the now-defrocked Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski. It invokes Pope Francis’ promise that in the pedophilia scandal ‘there are no privileges.' The Times erred again by repeating the myth of a pedophilia scandal: 100 percent of the victimizers were male; 81 percent of the victims were male; and 78 percent were postpubescent. That would make it a homosexual scandal. Indeed, less than 5 percent of these cases involve pedophilia. The boys the archbishop abused were teenagers, meaning that homosexuality, not pedophilia, was in play. The distinction is important." - Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue, responding to this editorial.
