The Catholic Church has passed the buck on their pedophile priests.
Women priests are being blamed for pedophilia in the Catholic Church due to their ‘feminizing’ of the profession.
Cardinal Raymond Burke said the influx of female priests has discouraged ‘manly’ men from partaking in the profession.
He told the group The New Emangelization that “Young boys don’t want to do things with girls. It’s just natural,” “It requires a certain manly discipline to serve as an altar boy in service at the side of priest, and most priests have their first deep experiences of the liturgy as altar boys.”
“If we are not training young men as altar boys, giving them an experience of serving God in the liturgy, we should not be surprised that vocations have fallen dramatically,”
It should come as no surprise, given the extreme lengths the Church has gone to to cover up the abuse that has gone on at their hands for decades, that they are so ready to blame anyone apart from themselves.
Irish Cardinal Burke also said,
“There was a period of time when men who were ‘feminized’ and confused about their own sexual identity had entered the priesthood; sadly some of these disordered men sexually abused minors; a terrible tragedy for which the Church mourns.”
