CWN Editor's Note: The former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said that some “papal confidants” “ accused the Congregation of too much severity and a lack of mercy” in dealing with priests accused of sexual abuse. Cardinal Müller added, “The sexual abuse of mainly homophilic offenders is not rooted in the Church’s sexual morality nor in the celibacy of the priests, but, rather, in the laxity of morals and in the violation of God’s commandments and the failure to live celibacy.”
