All of the usual suspects (the mainstream media, our secular culture, and especially the homosexual community) will all blame this priest's sexual abuse of boys on the Catholic Church, one way or the other. They will vehemently deny that homosexuality has anything to do with it. Few will place the blame where it really is: a debased culture where self gratification rules or on the predatory behavior of this one homosexual in violation of every standard of decency including his Sacred vows.
