Have we gone too far?

Have we gone too far?

Some people are beginning to ask the question: are the rights of innocent priests being trampled in the Scandal? There are some who would say, “Too many perverts were protected before. We can’t take chances now.” Is that really the way to go? Is the crime, the allegation, more than the innocence or guilt? That’s what they thought in the Salem Witch Trials.

  • If there were more honesty about the homosexual genesis of the “scandal” then it would be fairer to priests. First of all, by differentiating between good, straight priests and the lavender mafia/gay subculture, the decent priests would get back some of their good name.

    Second, though, if there were more honesty about the nature of the abuse, there’d be less hysteria about the suppossed hordes of child molesters decamped in the priesthood. If there were honesty about the alien subculture, parents would be less likely to idly accuse good priests, and perhaps more likely to call out the camoflaged lavenderites.

  • Protect children first (a novel idea to this Church).  Any priest credibly accused of sexual molestation needs to be removed from access to children pronto.  Determinations of guilt or innocence can be made later.  And anyway, all smart priests will now feel the need to never be alone with a boy or young man, to protect themselves.  Long gone are the days where parents could possibly feel happy and secure from some quality time spent between their son and a priest (playing basketball, working out at the gym, getting an ice cream together, going to the movies, Bible study at the rectory, etc. etc. )  How truly far we have fallen…  As long as the priesthood is full of homosexual men, parents will never trust priests to be alone with their sons.
