Quote by BBC
Cardinal Keith O'Brien has admitted that his sexual conduct has at times "fallen beneath the standards expected of me".

In a statement, he apologised and asked forgiveness from those he had "offended".

He also apologised to the Catholic Church, and to the people of Scotland.

The cardinal resigned last Monday after three priests and a former priest made allegations of improper behaviour against him.

Cardinal O'Brien had been Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric when he stood down as the Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh.

At the time, he said he would not take part in the election for a successor to Pope Benedict.

I don't understand. How can he really be a Catholic if he's gay? Isn't it their belief that it's every couples mission to breed like crazy?

But anyway, do you think even more abusive priests will be discovered if the new Pope does something about? How will it affect Catholics and people's perception of them?

That title sounds like a bunch of youtube tags.

Popes never do shit to crack down on horny clerics. Deprive an individual of sexual gratification and they themselves become a visage of perversion.

What a sleaze:

In recent days certain allegations which have been made against me have become public. Initially, their anonymous and non-specific nature led me to contest them.

So in other words, "At first I thought they didn't have any evidence against me, but then they did, so I realized I couldn't get away with it anymore."

So, who wants to go have some excessive drinking and night prayers for the sake of the catholic church.

Catholics can be gay. They just can't have sex. So he's all good.

Best thread-title typo ever

At least, I'm assuming it's a typo, because if not TS finds abuse sexy and someone should probably call the police.

Just to say not all Catholics are against homosexuality even though the Bible is. I consider myself Catholic and gay and my priest, who knows this fact about me, has always been warm and welcoming and accomodating towards me.

If he doesn't get locked up then shit is wrong. It's pathetic how the church leniency when it comes to child abuse rape. If anything they should receive harsher punishments, 'oh, you raped a kid? and you tried to justify it with your pathetic stultifying nonsense?'

Turns out he's only gay and tried putting the moves on another priest. Not a diddler.

He's gay? That's even worse than fiddling with children.
