Homosexuality is to blame for sexual abuse, not Catholic church, claims German cardinal
A study commissioned by the German Bishops Conference and published last year found that more than 3,600 children were sexually abused by Catholic clergy in Germany between 1946 and 2014.

But Cardinal Brandm√ľller claimed that only a ‚Äúvanishingly small number‚ÄĚ of clergy had committed abuses. He said the real problem was homosexuality and claimed it is ‚Äústatistically proven‚ÄĚ that there is a link between homosexuality and abuse.

Society ‚Äúforgets or covers up the fact that 80 per cent of cases of sexual assault in the church involved male youths not children,‚ÄĚ he told Germany‚Äôs DPA news agency in an interview a few days ahead of his 90th birthday. ...

As the one who did read the article it was interesting to see the spat that's going on in the Romish Church. is following comment by the Pope giving out as a serious concern or just as a means to tread water till the topic cools off?

Cardinal Brandm√ľller‚Äôs outburst comes days after the Pope urged Catholic bishops in the US to confront the ‚Äúsins and crimes‚ÄĚ of sexual abuse by the clergy and ‚Äúthe efforts made to deny or conceal them‚ÄĚ.

‚ÄúEverything we do risks being tainted by self-referentiality, self-preservation and defensiveness, and thus doomed from the start,‚ÄĚ Pope Francis wrote in a letter to American bishops ahead of a spiritual retreat to reflect on the issue.

‚ÄúAs we know, the mentality that would cover things up, far from helping to resolve conflicts, enabled them to fester and cause even greater harm to the network of relationships that today we are called to heal and restore.‚ÄĚ

Cardinal Brandm√ľller has been one of Pope Francis‚Äô most outspoken critics within the Catholic church, and is one of four cardinals who have repeatedly challenged the Pope‚Äôs teachings on love and family life....

I didn’t read the article.

The RCC covertly promotes homosexuality and therefore pedophilia by allowing priests and other clergy to molest children. All catholic clergy know this is taking place and if given opportunity they will simply cover it up. A priest molests someone and they simply confess it to another pedophile and receive absolution. Their confessions will remain secret.

I once knew a Christian fellow in Germany who was molested by his priest as a youth and he told his mother about it. She said to keep quiet because it would harm the church. Instead of worshiping Christ, they indeed worship the RCC. They are a cult in every sense of the word.

Homosexuality is not to blame for sexual abuse. Those who have been abused by those who are not homosexual would concur.
What is to blame is the sin nature and what faux pas agree upon is insignificant when it comes to veracity.

Pope John Paul 2 and Pope Benedict both concurred that the church did not have a child predator problem, it had a homosexual problem. Years ago a Catholic priest was found strangled at a hotel in Amarillo, he was wearing civilian clothes and nothing but his own car signified he was a priest. The conclusion was he met a man at a bar, went to the hotel and was killed.
