Viganรฒ Attacks Again: Even More Obsessively Focused on Homosexuality, as U.S. Catholic Church Continues Branding Itself as Homophobic Hate Machine




Viganรฒ, who served as the Vatican's ambassador to the U.S. from 2011 to 2016, launches as well an extended diatribe against alleged homosexuality in the Catholic priesthood, calling it "the principle [sic] cause" of the clergy abuse crisis. 
In his latest document, Viganรฒ says Ouellet offered a "dramatic silence" on "the role of homosexuality in the corruption of the priesthood and of the hierarchy." 
"This very grave crisis cannot be confronted and resolved correctly as long as we do not call things by their true names," states Viganรฒ. "It is not an exaggeration to say that homosexuality has become a scourge in the clergy and that it can be annihilated only with spiritual weapons." 
Several scientific studies have concluded that there is no link between homosexuality and clergy abuse. The 2011 John Jay Report, for example, cited instead a perversion of power and authority. The study was a deep investigation of the causes and context of clergy sex abuse and was commissioned by the U.S. bishops.
