It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Catholic Sex Scandal Revisited

In spite of what the media said three years ago, recent studies into the matter have found...

The [Catholic] Church had no pedophilia scandal. Though it has become media boilerplate to refer to a “pedophile priest scandal,” the reality is quite different. When the John Jay College of Criminal Justice thoroughly researched clergy sex abuse for the U.S. bishops, it found not a pedophilia crisis but what Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, described as “homosexual predation on American Catholic youth.” McHugh called that information a “bombshell” and said, “I’m astonished that people throughout America are not talking about it, thinking about it and wondering about what the mechanisms were that set this alight.”

Michael S. Rose answered that question in his book "Goodbye Good Men." It all began when liberals took over most of the seminaries in the west, and started letting active homosexuals in. Once homosexuals were put on the path to priesthood, a certain large percentage of them turned out to be sexual predators, looking to take advantage of naive and vulnerable teenage boys/men in the Church. Add a little homosexual blackmail of bishops to the mix, and you've got yourself the perfect recipe for a cover-up sex scandal. That's why Pope Benedict XVI has effectively mandated that all Catholic seminaries become a "no gay zone." Not only will homosexuals no longer be admitted as candidates, but homosexual priests will no longer be able to work in the seminaries either. The pope rightfully understands that the best solution to the problem is to eliminate the source of the problem. If you've got a homosexual sex-scandal to deal with, than just get rid of the homosexuals. They shouldn't have been there in the first place.
