Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows:
In San Francisco, the most controversial public issue at the moment is whether men—make that homosexual men—who parade around the city naked should be required to put a towel under their bottoms when they sit down on public benches or in restaurants (yes, these boys are legally allowed to swallow clams at Fisherman’s Wharf in the nude, sitting next to families). The big issue in Pittsburgh is whether the public should be exercised about the Internet claims of an ex-con (he has several priors) who says the local bishop tried to kiss him in the 1980s.
In a sane society, men would be locked up for exposing their genitals to children in public. Moreover, men who have been convicted of indecent exposure and lewd behavior, and who wait 30 years to make charges that they were inappropriately kissed—never once going to the cops—would be run out of town. But we are not sane: homosexuals can get away with anything they want, and innocent priests (including bishops) can be brought up on BS charges by convicted felons and get a serious hearing in the media. Yes, it’s just that sick.
