Another Failed Summit

Msgr. Charles Pope analyzes the missed opportunity commonly called the "Vatican Clergy Abuse Summit". Excerpt:

Regarding the second point, the silence—even outright refusal to discuss—the clear connection between the sexual abuse crisis and active homosexuality in the priesthood is a severe blow to credibility. That Cardinal Blase Cupich, a key organizer of the summit, denies a causal relationship between homosexual clergy and the fact that more than 80 percent of the victims have been post-pubescent males is not credible to most Catholics. There is simply no logical basis for such a claim, except perhaps among LBGTQ ideologues.

What does Cardinal Cupich fear from the LBGTQ mafia? Everyone knows he is wrong about this. The connection is clear.

  1. Yes, I'm with you on this. Obviously the causal connection between active homosexuality and the abuse is strong, but...

    I wonder if the way they handled it by dealing with it without dealing with it wasn't the better move. Meaning that the improved accountability noted by Msgr. Pope (his point #3) will have the effect of motivating the bishops to remove or discern out active homosexuals, while keeping the Summit from turning into the media sh*tstorm that would have been caused by publicly raising the obvious causal connection.
