An inconvenient truth: The vast majority of Catholic Abuse was perpetrated by homosexuals.

Click here: The sexual abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic Church in recent days marked the culmination of seven decades of horrendous wrongdoing by hundreds of priests. But the media would rather ignore one particularly inconvenient truth: The vast majority of the crime was perpetrated by homosexuals.

Monsignor Charles Pope, a Catholic priest writing of previous abuse scandals in the National Catholic Register, makes the case:

It is evident that the vast majority of the cases involving both the sexual abuse of minors and of adults involve male victims. The 2004 John Jay Report (The Nature and Scope of the Problem of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Catholic Priests and Deacons in the United States), which was commissioned by the U.S. bishops themselves, found that 81 percent of the victims were male and 78 percent of all victims were post-pubescent. … So, the large majority of cases involved attraction by homosexuals to young men who, though legally minors, were physically and sexually mature males, not little children. This is not pedophilia. It is homosexual attraction.

Tree of Life Rabbi says he saw a ‘warm and personal side’ to Trump that surprised him

Click here: Tree of Life Rabbi Jeffrey Myers said Thursday he was “pleasantly surprised” to discover a “warm and personal side” to U.S. President Donald Trump when he visited the Pittsburgh synagogue this week following the deadly shootings there over the weekend. “I was privileged to have a private 15 or 20 minutes with the family,” Myers said. “The president was very warm, very consoling, put his hand on my shoulder, and the first question he asked me was, ‘Rabbi, tell me how are you doing.’ I must say throughout the time we spent together, I was pleasantly surprised by a warm and personal side to the president that I don’t think America has ever seen.”
