The Vatican’s Secretary of State: “there is a relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia”

Posted on April 21, 2010


It seems likely the Pope will soon be introducing those wheely things with the straps and mouth cover from the film  “Silence of the Lambs”, as official Vatican wear for all his Priests.

Realistically this appears the only way to prevent senior members of the Vatican from shooting themselves in the foot, face and every major organ.

The latest on the bandwagon is Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone who stated:

“Many psychologists and psychiatrists have shown that there is no link between celibacy and pedophilia but many others have shown, I have recently been told, that there is a relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia,”

As ‘compelling evidence’ goes I’m sure we’re all aware that you can’t get much more convincing than “I was recently told”. In a Court of Law it can be useful if you have DNA evidence but the gold at the end of the rainbow for every prosecution lawyer is of course the witness who has recently been told something.

It isn’t clear who told Cardinal Bertone this new information. God? The taxi driver on the way to the press conference? It hardly seems to matter.

Clearly Cardinal Bertone has closed the book on this debate.

Others – poor deluded fools – will continue to suggest that a system which makes a taboo of any and every kind of sex leads to the lines of morality becoming blurred so that sex with a child seems only as wrong as sex with an adult in the mind of the abuser. This might seem to be borne out by the number of sexual abuse cases in the Catholic church compared with the numbers in churches where Priests are allowed to marry.

Thankfully Cardinal Bertone has put this silly nonsense to bed. Thank God. Or his taxi driver. Or whoever it was that told him.
