Pope Francis marched into one of the Catholic Church’s most prominent scandals of the last generation, priests molesting children. Pope Francis compared pedophilia in the Catholic Church to leprosy and claimed that it had infected the Church. He went further to offer an estimate, provided in consultation with his advisors, that about 2% of the clergy are pedophiles.

This publication claims that it is working for Christianity. I don’t think Jesus would recognize the type of Christianity this publication has in mind.

Like any reasonable gay man, I am generally intolerant of being implied to be or inferred to be a pedophile. Furthermore, I know many gay men who are excellent fathers to their female and male children. They don’t deserve this. They don’t deserve to called out, implied or inferred to be pedophiles. They don’t deserve to have their lives and families disrespected and dehumanized because of the ignorance of one gay man and the predatory, drooling nature of a twisted homophobe.

Discredited anti-gay researcher Paul Cameron held a press conference yesterday in which he spread more lies about the lgbt community. In this clip, he claimed that pedophilia is a standard practice in the gay community.

The Catholic Church is really experiencing a similar decline that other respected institutions have felt in recent years. And like those other declines, it’s entirely of their own making.

If you are, like me, confused about the answer to this question, please raise your hand….or better yet….ask your Congressperson, Senator and the President: Why is a pedophilia-ridden, pedophilia-hiding, child-abusing Church allowed to write laws controlling women’s rights?
