Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the sentencing of Wayland Yoder Brown:

In the 1970s, Father Wayland Yoder Brown, who spent most of his time in Georgia parishes, sexually abused two boys in Maryland and later abused two more boys in South Carolina.

In 2002, he pleaded guilty to the Maryland crimes and was sent to prison; two years later he was dismissed from the priesthood by Pope John Paul II. Now the 76-year old ex-priest has been sentenced to 20 more years in prison for what he did in South Carolina.

All the boys were postpubescent, meaning that Brown was—like almost all molesting priests—a homosexual. He was not a pedophile, though the media cover-up of offending homosexual priests continues.
