Archbishop Blames Pro-homosexual Culture for Priest Abuse

He said: 'When sexuality is trivialised, it's clear that this is going to affect all cases. Homosexuality is such a case. When we begin to say they have rights, rights to demonstrate publicly, pretty soon, we'll find the rights of paedophiles.'

An archbishop [Brazilian priest Dadeus Grings] has defended the child sex scandal that has engulfed the Roman Catholic Church by claiming it reflects the behaviour of society at large.

He said: 'Society today is paedophile, that is the problem. So people easily fall into it. And the fact it is denounced is a good sign.'

The archbishop also said it was important to help children avoid homosexuality.

'We know that the adolescent is spontaneously homosexual. Boys play with boys, girls play with girls.

'If there is no proper guidance, this sticks. The question is - how are we going to educate our children to use a sexuality that is human and suitable?'

[His comments] come just three weeks after Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican's second in-command, said the Church's international sex scandal is linked to homosexuality and not celibacy among priests.
