Mary, if these individuals were so comfortable with engaging in sex with adults of the same sex, then they shouldn't have had any pressure to have sex with children, unless they were perverted beyond mere homosexuality in the first place. I doubt that would be the case with most of them. As for those who actually observe celibacy, I would imagine the sexual pressure would be much greater.
Seems to me that is rather simplistic to think that people who exercise their sexuality with children do not do so with adults as well...
Also my real point is that active homosexuals in a seminary precipitate a highly sexualized environment that gives tacit permission to others who act out equally inappropriately and worse, where children are involved.
To blame homosexuals for pedophilia just shows how little you know about either group.
Pedophile doesn't automatically mean "sex with little boys." It means "sex with children." There were male and female victims of abuse, and it has nothing to do with whether or not the offender was homosexual. Furthermore, being celibate, married, gay, or straight will not stop a pedophile from abusing his/her victim.
I've personally known victims of sexual abuse who's abusers were married men with free and open access to sex with their wives. The offenders chose to abuse children because the psychological drive to abuse is an abnormal one that "normal" sex will not satisfy.
Furthermore, I find it interesting that you are quick to cast blame on Homosexual priests who were not celibate, but say nothing about the Heterosexual priests who were not celibate. How many female "secretaries" or "housekeepers" have born the children of priests (heck, Popes!) throughout the centuries?!
No, the drive for a pedophile has very little to do with sexual preference and everything to do with the sick drive to control and abuse those who are weaker than you.
I pray that the Catholic Church will be able to find the root of this problem, and that the victims AND their abusers will find healing in God's Holy Kingdom.
