    A bishop that doesn't know the history of the church. The sin of sodomy is not new. Pious V in 1566 recommended offending clergy be stripped of clerical ranks and privilege and turned over to secular authority. I think the zero tolerance of last 20 or so years replicates that decree. It is up to the bishops to extend to consenting adults as secular authorities see no problem with sodomy.
