British Bishop Links Traditional Catholicism to Pedophilia

Much akin to likening laws against robbing banks as the main cause of bank robberies, Bishop Tom Burns of the Diocese of Menevia, Wales, has stated from the pulpit that the homosexual rape of pre-pubescent boys by a very small percentage of Catholic priests was caused by the following liturgical attitude; "Those who go to extremes to express the Mass in a particular way..." by way of "Flamboyant modes of liturgical vestments and rubrical gestures." And according to the cleric still in good standing within the Catholic Church, the reason for "extremes" and "flamboyant modes" happens to be Clericalism (the anti-priest notion that from an eccesiastical perspective, priests wield too much power); For priests who offended [committed pedophilia], I’m not sure that their abuses grew out of the rule of celibacy; abuse happens within otherwise good families too. I’m more convinced that it grew out of the clericalism of the past. That clericalism risks raising its head today among those who again are looking for identity in status, not service. They want to be treated differently. The Bishop's argument that Clericalism is the root cause for pedophilia fails to hold water in light of Newsweek magazine's report in April, 2010 that;
"The rate of abuse by Catholic priests is not higher than these national estimates [for the average male]." It defies common sense that Clericalism fuels pedophilia simply because there aren't any clerics in Corporate America, family owned businesses or any other segment of American life other than that of Tradition-minded Catholics.

No, pedophilia and similar homosexual perversions are invariably committed by pro-gay sex and pro-gay rights liberal progressive clerics.

The problem is godless liberalism.

The solution is a return to the holiness and righteousness that is exemplified by the Traditional.

Let's "bottom line" all this. The man is a liar!

This Bishop is a slanderer and a libeler. He's in a position to know that perverts seek out positions of power and influence in all kinds of organizations. Look at what happened in the UK. They had a spy ring loyal to the USSR that gave away tons of state secrets. All the spies were queers. All of them were from establishment families. All of them were Reds. No it wasn't Christian orthodoxy that drove these men (and I use the word loosely) to betray their country, it was the alienation caused by their sodomy that trned them into tratiors. And we see the same thing in the church, sodomy driving so-called priests to betray our Lord and his loyal priests.
