Is Catholic Clergy Sex Abuse Related to Homosexual Priests?

On Nov. 2, the Ruth Institute published a new report that dares to ask a question many researchers — and Catholics — have been afraid to ask: What has been the role of active homosexuality and homosexual subcultures in the priesthood and in seminaries on the sex-abuse crisis?

The report — which indicates a very strong correlation between homosexual priests and homosexual subcultures and the incidence of clergy sexual abuse — is in part a response to the two important studies commissioned by the U.S. Bishops in the face of the sex-abuse crisis that were conducted by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Now, to be honest or as they use to say in IBM many years ago, "Open Kimono,"  I have not read the report, but just the article.  However, if our bishops and Catholic laity continue to put their heads in the sand about this, it will only continue to erode the confidence in the and respect for the Church.
