It's a 'great injustice' to link homosexuality and pedophilia, hurts faithful gay priests, Vatican official says

Vatican official Jodi Bertomeu Farnos wrote there is no link between celibacy or homosexuality with the current rash of child sex abuse cases in the Catholic church.

Vatican As the Catholic Church deals with cases of pedophilia and sexual misconduct worldwide, one Vatican official says that neither homosexuality nor celibacy should be linked to cases of sexual abuse of children by priests. Jordi Bertomeu Farnos of the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) stated that homosexuality and celibacy are not the causes of sexual abuse. Farnos based his conclusions on approximately 6,000 cases of abuse investigated by the CDF. He also served as a special investigator in the Chilean Catholic sex abuse cases. "There is no evidence that priestly celibacy directly causes any deviant sexual addiction, as evidenced by those cases of men or women who, due to life's circumstances, must live as celibate," Farnos wrote in the Spanish magazine Palabra . Farnos pointed out that celibacy has"never been considered as a relevant parameter to identify abusers." Most abusers, he added, are married men. However, Farnos did not state that celibacy is something that needed to be outlawed in order to reduce the number of sex abuse cases. "This conclusion does not present any logical connection with the proble we are dealing with here; there is no scientific data that demonstrates that a married life would put an end to the deviant behavior of these few priests with this sexual disorder," Farnos wrote. A Vatican official claims there is no link between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of children in the Catholic church. Getty Farnos said that the belief that homosexual priests are three times more likely to commit acts of pedophilia is not backed up by his findings. "It must be said that there is no direct relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia or between the latter and a 'progressive style' of clergy," Farnos continued, adding that connecting homosexuality and pedophilia"not only involves the commission of a great injustice, but also the criminalization of a certain sexual identity." "Rather, it is only possible to affirm that a certain homosexual subculture typical of some clerical groups and present in certain seminars or novititates, with the consequent tolerance towards active homosexual behaviors, can lead to pedophilia." Training the priests should be a high priority for the church, Farnos said, with candidates for the priesthood being instilled"with the aim of never scandalizing or even moving anyone away from the faith, the great gift that sustains us."

Priest are not supposed to have sex, they are supposed to be celibate. The elephant in the room should be discussed. Let priest marry and have families. Enough of suppressing desires to have sex and end up abusing children when the desire can’t be overcome. This is 21st century! pedophiles have inappropriate sexual relations with children. without consent. homosexuals have sexual relations with a consenting adult. it is a felony to have sex with children. it is legal to have sex with a consenting adult. the sex of the person doesn't matter as.

Isn’t there something in the Bible about homosexuality? Something about a no no! there are MANY great priest in this world. I'm not letting the bad ones spoil my faith. Hopefully everyone has known this for years . The Vatican will next make a statement that priest rape is a growing problem . Justice delayed is justice denied!
