    I've seen many dumb things on many forums but there is one subject on this forum that has to absolutely take the cake. It's the whole circus of child molesting priests and gay bashing scenario. I find it amazing that many people on this board voiced their approval of the Pope when he pretty much blamed child molestation on gays. The stupidity in all of this? The fucking Pope himself would be on trial for covering up child molestation acts if he wasn't the head of state. How can any sane person actually listen to or agree with someone on the issue if they are a guilty party themselves? It's insane.

    Most were male because they were altar boys. It's not often that little girls are left alone with priests.

    Maybe I'm wrong about the quote coming from the pope. Actually I believe it was the general consensus among many of the Christians on this board. They believed that homosexuality itself was the root of pedophilia which seems to be... well insane. I do know that many here did like his stance on gays not being able to be priests or something of the sort. Either way it's chicken shit(and terribly ignorant and stupid) to point the finger at gays when the Pope himself knowingly helped pedophiles escape prison.

    fair enough.....so for the most part, male priests molested male altar boys and for someone to see this as gay pedophila and then draw a conclusion that homosexuality is the root for this type of pedophilia ....is insane?

    i was unaware that the pope pardoned or spirtied (pardon the pun) away guilty priests so that they could avoid prison....you wouldn't happen to have a link to that article would you?

    Ah, well, then - a perfectly understandable little mistake. I often get "the Pope" and "posters on a message board" mixed up...
