of both yours and Tweety's abilities; however, I fail to see your correlation between enforced celibacy of the homosexual priest (or the heterosexual for that matter) and a penchant toward pedophilia. Is it a natural phenomenon born of celibacy or is it that this is a crime that receives noteriety whereas the heterosexual and homosexual activities between consenting adults,one of which previously vowed to remain celibate, is not noteworthy?

The inference is that pedophilia is a by-product of enforced celibacy. It would seem more to the point that any sexual activity engaged in by the clergy would be the natural by-product.

I've not been convinced that the phenomenon of priests preying on children is a direct result of sexual orientation.

But I do enjoy the discussion!!
