The board said celibacy was not a cause of the scandal, but that the celibacy requirement may have attracted candidates for the priesthood who were seeking an escape from their sexual problems.
I wouldn't necessarily disagree with that.
The board came to no direct conclusions about whether gays should be ordained. However, it noted that "any evaluation of the causes and context of the current crisis must be cognizant of the fact that more than 80 percent of the abuse at issue was of a homosexual nature."
OMG!!! Are we actually going to discuss this issue???
It's unpleasant to be sure. And I'm one of those who thinks that celibate SSA men can definitely be good priests. But how do we have this conversation? 1. Charity in all things. 2. Forget that the world is watching (I know that's pretty well impossible, but we have to if we're going to do what's right for the Church, i.e., God's children).
Those are my humble suggestions, anyway!
