I was a victim of Fr George McFadden, & the a victim of the Vatican's Policy (1996). I'm in your files for blowing the whistle on this priest that should be removed, not hidden. I have been betrayed by my own uncle, who moved McFadden repeatedly, and blamed me for being rejected by my family. I can't forgive the church, nor look at a cross, without thinking NAZI!

My son is gay and would NEVER abuse anyone! much less a child! How dare they blame the homosexual community!

Of course there is absurdity here. On the side of the Catholic Church. How can they deny what is STILL going on? God would surely not be proud of them!!

Yes, I came to comment on that as well. What they should say is "pedophilic priests" not homosexual priests. I find that to be insulting and careless. Homosexual does not = child abuse!! I'm about to start a petition asking them to apologize for their cruel and unjust statement targeting homosexuals...

child abuse is an issue of its own, most likely to be carried out by the hetrosexual man or woman I am not gay, but intelligent enough to realize the church is using homosexuality as an excuse

I am gay but I'm not a pedophile. I find his remarks offensive. It would be the same as suggesting that a priest who abuses girls is doing it because he is straight. Frankly the church's position is dark ages on abortion, on contraception, on equal marriage but for me that's all up to them. They're entitled to a point of view and we're entitled to decide to stop going to church. Abusing children is not about religion and decisions should not be made by secretive church tribunals but...

They're entitled to a point of view and we're entitled to decide to stop going to church. Abusing children is not about religion and decisions should not be made by secretive church tribunals but rather openly and transparently. If you read the book Mortal Sins, which sadly reads like a great crime novel, you'll see that everything we know about this problem has been dragged out of the church through a civil legal process - it's why the church is the only significant opponent to eliminating statutes of limitations on child sex abuse! Thanks for your support!!

I don't for a moment blame gay people, but these priests what ever there sexual persuasion are just out and out twisted individuals who should be locked up ! It makes a mockery of the catholic religion ( and other religions) WHY are you letting them get away with it ) ????

It is not a denial but a cover up...You do not have to be gay to abuse a child. If the church admitted a problem, more people would leave than ever and with them goes donations. Could it be about this? Abuse on a child lasts forever it is never forgotten. The physical abuse may have healed , but the emotional and psychological or life long. Strong and harsh penalties and prison time should be mandatory, believe me the inmates will take care of the rest...

Yes they are that pathetic and clueless that they think it has to do with being gay and need to blame it on something. Their empire is caving in from the inside, NOTHING they do is truely Christlike...corrupt. Really? Taking money from the public by 10% demand and abusing children in the most devastating of ways and you dare use the name of God and call yourselves Christlike when you do the opposite... Evil if you ask me.

I am a catholic but abhor the policy the church has followed since before all this became public. I do not feel part of my church anymore. How can men of the cloth perform these outrageous acts upon children. They should be prosecuted in a court of law like any other pedophile. Wake up Vatican!

Maria Gabriela Ferretti

how many is enough?all these guys should be castrated first and keep them in jail and let them deal with them....place them with the general population and let them be......this guys are sickkkk,....;O(

We use them to make real world changes. Politicians (and hopefully Popes) see the will of the people expressed collectively and they listen. We've changed laws, ensured justice and protected people through petitions, they work really well!

That isn't true Jessica. Many world leaders have made it very clear that online petitions helped them change their position on important topics. Cynically minded people like to say that. But they're probably the same people that wouldn't lift a finger to try and help other people anyway.
