A Defense for the Pope and Some History on the Source of the Scandal

April 4, 2010

And here’s another great article on the subject of the clergy sex abuse scandal from RenewAmerica.

Priest defends pope, papal preacher

By Matt C. Abbott

Father James Farfaglia, a priest of the Diocese of Corpus Christi, Texas β€” and author of Man to Man: A Real Priest Speaks to Real Men about Marriage, Sexuality and Family Life β€” isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

When asked by yours truly to comment on papal preacher Father Raniero Cantalamessa’s controversial Good Friday sermon, Father Farfaglia said in an e-mail:

“He said nothing wrong. As soon as we mention the ‘h’-word (homosexual) or the ‘j’-word (Jews) everyone goes crazy. Problems will never get resolved if we can’t be objective.”

As for the Vicar of Christ himself, Father Farfaglia says the pope “is cleaning up the mess. He’s part of the solution, not the problem. This is why he’s hated.”

And the causes of the clergy abuse crisis?

“I’ve been confronting the corruption in the Catholic Church head-on for the past 14 years,” says Father. “Everything that’s going on now does not surprise me at all. After the 2002 debacle in the U.S., I told everyone that this is only the beginning.

“International communism and masonry infiltrated the Catholic priesthood back in the late 1940s and a relentless battle has taken place to try and destroy the Catholic priesthood.

“The present crisis has nothing to do with women not being priests or priestly celibacy. The Catholic priesthood has been purposely infiltrated by a homosexual sub-culture, commonly known among faithful Catholic priests as the lavender mafia.

“This is not to say that every homosexual man is a child molester. However, studies have shown that the vast majority of abuse cases in the Catholic Church deal with boys over the age of 15. This affirms a problem with homosexuality. Homosexuals need healing and therapy, not positions of authority.

“Bishops, Vatican and/or chancery officials covered up abuse cases because they were blind or because they were part of the problem.”

And, yes, there is research to back up Father Farfaglia’s assertions.

In a 2005 essay titled “Child Molestation by Homosexuals and Heterosexuals,” Brian Clowes, Ph.D., and David Sonnier wrote (excerpt; click here to read the full essay):
