Another day, another Vatican attack on the gay community. This is time it comes Pope Benedict XVI’s no. 2 and it is particularly vicious, not mention patently false.
During a visit to Chile, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican secretary of state, who is sometimes called the “deputy pope,” bleated:
“Many psychologists and psychiatrists have shown that there is no link between celibacy and pedophilia, but many others have shown, I have recently been told, that there is a relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia.”
This is a troubling tactic by the Vatican hierarchy.
Because the Roman Catholic Church is embroiled in a global sex abuse scandal involving the rape of children and its failure to defrock pedophile priests, the Vatican has decided to try and hang their albatross on the shoulders of the gay community.
Sorry, Ratzinger but I’m not buying it and if I were a betting man, I would bet the vast majority of the developed world won’t buy it either.
