Speaking Of Mortal Sin

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone (pictured seated) said in a news conference in Chile on Monday that "many psychologists and psychiatrists have demonstrated that there is no relation between celibacy and ped@philia." 
They do believe, however, "that there is a relation between h@mosexuality and ped@philia," he said. "That is true. ... That is the problem."....
"The behavior of the priests in this case, the negative behavior, is very serious, is scandalous," the cardinal said. Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, similarly pointed at h@mosexuality last month as the true problem behind the child abuse s@x scandal. In a full-page ad taken out in The New York Times, he called it a "h@mos@xual crisis," claiming that "eighty percent of the victims of priestly s@xual abuse are male."
