Whose bias?

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jun 17, 2005

Paul McHugh, a member of the National Review Board, hopes that the US bishops' conference will approve a $1 million investment in a new study of the causes of the sex-abuse scandal.

"If we don't do this study," he said, "some one else will, and they might bring different biases to it."

Different biases? And what biases do you want to have included in the study?

In citing the need for the abuse study, McHugh said some Catholics have blamed gay priests for the crisis. "But we don't know that. We don't know if being homosexual has anything to do with it," he said. "We don't know what caused it."

Oh. I withdraw my question.
