Well he said yes, didn't he?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 24, 2005

Jasper, Indiana. A suspended Roman Catholic priest accused of molesting a mentally disabled 19-year-old man told police the contact was consensual, according to court records obtained before a judge issued a gag order in the case.

Consensual. I guess it's all right then.

What's important here is to avoid the danger of scapegoating. The inappropriate lifestyle choices of some morerasts (individuals sexually attracted to mentally defective persons) shouldn't be allowed to give the remaining four percent a bad name. Think of the gifts they bring to the Church!
