Bertone at a news conference in Santiago, Chile:
“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…This pathology is one that touches all categories of people, and priests to a lesser degree in percentage terms. The behavior of the priests in this case, the negative behavior, is very serious, is scandalous.”
Well “I have been told recently” That this is the same papal douchebag who in 2002 said this:
So Cardinal “Mary” Tarcisio Bertonehe is deeply implicated in the whole scandal himself.
“In my opinion, the demand that a bishop be obligated to contact the police in order to denounce a priest who has admitted the offense of pedophilia is unfounded.”
