    Shout it from yhe heavens. The abuse crisis is not celibacy but a lack of chaste priest sucking on the teat of secular trash. In addition there is the homosexuality issue which so many of the hierarchy want to cover up as well. They have lost courage and faith in Christ so now they want us to accept these issues. These wolves in sheep's clothing will have much to answer for. St Michael protect us.
