Is the sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church a “gay” scandal?

Catholic League: “To be specific, homosexuals are indeed overrepresented—for whatever reason—as child molesters [click here for the evidence] . . . To the extent that practicing homosexuals find it more difficult to enter the priesthood (and this has been true for some time), the sexual abuse scandal will check itself. As a matter of fact, it already has . . . ”

Brian W. Clowes and David L. Sonnier, Child Molestation by homosexuals and heterosexuals, Pastoral and Homiletics Review at 45 (May 2005), excerpts:

Page 45: “In fact, a number of studies performed over a period spanning more than half a century—many of which were performed by homosexuals or their sympathizers—have shown that an extremely large percentage of sexually active homosexuals also participate in child sexual molestation. This is not ‘homophobia’ or ‘hatred,’ this is simple scientific fact.”

Page 45: “A very recent (2000) study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that ‘The best epidemiological evidence indicates that only 2-4% of men attracted to adults prefer men. In contrast, around 25-40% of men attracted to children prefer boys. Thus, the rate of homosexual attraction is 6-20 times higher among pedophiles.’”

Page 46: “Page A study by sex researchers Alan Bell and Martin Weinberg found that 25% of white homosexual men have had sex with boys sixteen years and younger.”

Page 48: “In the population of priests who sexually abuse minors, six in seven molest boys.”

Page 48: “Let us assume for a moment that the concentration of male homosexuals in the priesthood is four times greater than it is in the
general population—about ten percent. Using the figures given in Table 3.5.4, we find that a homosexual priest is (85.3%/10.0%)/(14.7%/90.0%) = 52 times more likely to molest a child than a heterosexual priest. If we use the more reasonable assumption that five percent of all priests are homosexual (still about twice the average in the general population), we see that a homosexual priest is (85.3%/5.0%)/(14.7%/95.0%) = 110 times more likely to molest a child than a heterosexual priest.”

Page 48: “A nationwide survey of school principals showed that they received 13 times as many complaints about homosexuals sexually molesting students than they did about heterosexuals molesting students.”
