The refrain that child rape is a reality in the Church is twice wrong: let’s get it straight—they weren’t children and they weren’t raped. We know from the John Jay study that most of the victims have been adolescents, and that the most common abuse has been inappropriate touching (inexcusable though this is, it is not rape). The Boston Globe correctly said of the John Jay report that “more than three-quarters of the victims were post pubescent, meaning the abuse did not meet the clinical definition of pedophilia.” In other words, the issue is homosexuality, not pedophilia.”

-Bill Donohue, president of Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights

The issue is SEXUAL ABUSE not homosexuality.

Homosexuality is NOT synonymous with rape, sexual abuse, or child molestation. Despite what Mr. Donhue here seems to think, most gay men don’t go around raping/abusing children (or anyone for that matter).

Homosexuality is not a crime, but what they are being accused of is. 

If its teachings were pro-abortion, pro–gay marriage and pro–women clergy, the dogs would have been called off years ago.

– Bill Donohue

Actually we’d still think rape, sexual abuse, pedophilia were criminal acts that need to be punished.
