Not likely to be reported in the NY Times any time soon...

unless it's to complain about how "homophobic" the Church is.

Homosexuality is the Cause of the Sex Abuse Crisis
The Vatican's number two official, Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone, said today that the Church's problems with pedophile priests have not been caused by celibacy, but by homosexuality

Update: good thing The American Spectator is not as un/non/anti-curious about this issue as is the NYTimes...

Clearly, Malangré was warning Fahr that Hullermann was a homosexual.

Of course, you knew that already, somehow. But that somehow was not because the New York Times told you. The word "homosexual" does not appear a single time in all the articles the Times has run since the story first broke.

That is the curious incident in this story.

Scotland Yard detective Gregory asks Sherlock Holmes, "Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?" Holmes replies, "To the curious incident of the dog in the nighttime." Gregory responds, "The dog did nothing in the nighttime."

Holmes: "That was the curious incident."
There are, in fact, at least three scandals here. One, that a priest molested boys thirty years ago, is scandal to be sure, but alas, hardly news now, given the number of such stories over the past decade -- including one in California that came to light only this past week.
The second, and underlying, scandal is that it's the homosexuals allowed into the priesthood in the sixties who have been causing most of the trouble.

Are all homosexuals child molesters? Certainly not.

Are most child molesters in the Catholic Church homosexuals? Almost certainly.

But try finding that story in the New York Times.
